I'm working on a longer blog right now and don't want to rush its completion but I did want to share this amusing tidbit while it was on my mind. I know a woman (thin and fit) who will, after saying hello to me, immediately glance at my mid... Read more

I was so excited last Monday after my first time out running. I wanted to share my excitement with a friend of mine who didn't know about SparkPeople but in doing that there was going to have to be quite a bit of explaining regarding all the de... Read more

For anybody who didn't see my previous blog, Monday was my first day as a runner. The enormous accomplishment I felt lasted all week. (So did some random achy joints!) Tuesday is a rest day for me (it's actually quite hard for me to take the ... Read more

Today, I'm admitting to a deep, dark secret I've been harboring for 4 months now. (Oh, maybe it's not so deep and dark; I've mentioned it a couple of times.) I've been living vicariously through the running adventures of Karvy, AprilRunner an... Read more

I haven't felt the need to blog lately, there's really been nothing interesting to report. I'm finding myself bored with any of the exercise routines that have been available to me and I know from past experience what happens when I don't feel ... Read more

It's been a good week. I made peace with a couple of conflicts and life has been pretty uneventful for me; how nice! The weather has been wonderful and I am extremely grateful for all the good things I have. I was thinking about the last ... Read more

I've discovered that a great way for me to unravel more of my tangled psyche is to respond to other people's blogs. I try to keep my responses short but there's always something personal for me to work on after I've posted. Last Saturday'... Read more

I've been doing a lot of thinking about long-term goal setting this week. I have quite a bit done on a blog about my goal setting discoveries but, as has happened before, something else has come up and that blog will wait for another time. ... Read more

Every week is a new lesson to be learned. This week it was another chapter on handling the stress issue: my inability to say "no" to the people I love and the effect it has on the commitment I've made to myself. It caused a new emotion I seld... Read more

The week before last, I participated in a stress-filled vacation. Although I did my best to stay with my daily routine, my weight barely broke even by the end of the week. I was interested in finding out what would happen once I returned to my... Read more

I just finished week 2 of the Annual Family Gathering. I had to work during part of Week 1 but the past week was my "vacation". It was a very stress-filled time; most of my family lives far away and we have to get a whole year's worth of fun ... Read more

I have a dress-up occasion on 8/15 and absolutely no clue as to what I'm going to wear!! I remembered a dress I was going to wear to my nephew's wedding two years ago and decided against it at that time because it felt just a little tight. Wel... Read more

I try to only get on the scale once a week, on Saturday morning, in order to save myself a lot of frustration. While I understand the daily up and down progression of the numbers, it's too hard to look at if it's going up! After a particularly... Read more

Who of us here LOVES having their picture taken?? My mom was camera-phobic (she could smell a camera and run and hide better than anyone I ever knew!) so I'm sure I learned my photo-avoidance from her. Sad thing is, my mom passed on about 15 y... Read more

Sunday, July 26, 2009      1 comments

Today's status says that I "am humbled and inspired by all of you." Yesterday, my plan was to write about the good and positive changes I have accomplished so far. During the afternoon, I read a blog by someone who wondered if they were... Read more
