Plan BE
Sunday, December 16, 2012      7 comments

It has been a week for backup plans. Last week, I wrote of my broken computer. A very dear friend of mine who loves me in good times and bad has lent me a laptop for the duration that's better than the one I have now. But it's not MY comp... Read more
Matters of Convenience and Surprises
Sunday, December 09, 2012      9 comments

This week, I've been thinking about a lot of things but my focus has been on matters of convenience, those choices we make because they're just easier than looking for other options. I tend to shop at a grocery store that's on my way home even ... Read more

I have been writing over the past few months that I put the scale away. It's still on its shelf but I did pull it out and check on November 1. Before I checked, I made sure that I said out loud, "Whatever this says is not going to determine ho... Read more
Holiday Decorating
Saturday, November 24, 2012      12 comments

I'm not much of a Christmas decorator. It's so much fun to put everything up and such an object of procrastination when it's time to put it all away! My brother and sister-in-law go all out at Christmas time and the entire house is transformed... Read more
Check Engine
Sunday, November 18, 2012      6 comments

I do love my car. I bought it 3 years ago after 6 months of searching and researching. I knew in my heart what I really wanted but since everyone in my world had an opinion as to what I SHOULD buy, I put my choice aside and kept looking. I f... Read more
Find an example, be an example
Monday, November 12, 2012      8 comments

FIND AN EXAMPLE, BE AN EXAMPLE. These words appeared to me on my morning drive to work almost 4 weeks ago. I had been struggling with eating in the workplace; I had been doing so well on my own but as soon as I got to work, I fell prey to a... Read more
Winds of Change
Sunday, November 11, 2012      3 comments

The winds of change are blowing me to places I've already been!! It's a nice morning here after a night where it actually got warmer overnight (the winds are pounding right now and by tomorrow this will be very different!) As I was out wal... Read more
It's about Time
Sunday, November 04, 2012      9 comments

I recently joined some new Spark Teams to better reflect where I am now. I'm always a lurker on the teams I'm on but I do read all the postings and I gain so much from each team I'm on. A topic from the Inner Journey Team this week was t... Read more
Monday Morning Inspiration
Monday, October 29, 2012      6 comments

Once in a while I encounter a blog that I can't get out of my mind, that I have to read and reread. I'm sharing this in case it was missed; INDYGIRL is definitely in the place where I'm heading. As my comment to her said, I just wanted to shou... Read more

PATHS WE DON'T WANT TO TAKE (but should) AND PLACES WE DON'T WANT TO GO (but will return to) These days, I am not focused on losing weight. Of course I want to (I have all these great clothes I want to wear again!) but the over the last t... Read more
25 More Options
Saturday, October 20, 2012      15 comments

I love how my weekly blogging takes me to new places I haven't traveled to before now. I write something every day and at the end of the week, I still have no idea what I'm going to be writing about (and usually what I choose to write about has... Read more
Life and Trees and Seasons of Life
Saturday, October 13, 2012      14 comments

Runners World Daily Kick in the Butt: I choose a seasonal outlook. I try to think of myself as an apple tree. Time is not linear, it moves in circles. Come spring, I will bloom again. (Amby Burfoot, author of The Runner's Guide to the Mean... Read more
The Reward for Working Hard
Monday, October 08, 2012      11 comments

What a pretty day yesterday! Saturday was blustery (my favorite weather word) and Sunday was sunny and calm. I started mowing the yard in the morning (push mower) and I wanted to aim the mower in the same direction on each pass so it would sho... Read more
What's in the Blog File today?
Sunday, October 07, 2012      8 comments

So here it is, Sunday already, and I need to post a blog because posting once a week is a goal that I set for myself. I have learned from previous experience that the more I write, the more I want to write and this week, the problem is that the... Read more
The Shallowest Motivator
Sunday, September 30, 2012      6 comments

I saw so much renewed motivation from my Spark Friends at the end of August. How did your September go? (actually, WHERE did September go??) This year, I've been sputtering like a lawn mower; in August, I finally stopped. I blew my 20 mo... Read more
