Momentum in May
Tuesday, May 03, 2011      1 comments

Three days in, and I am happy to report that despite stressors at work, and jaw pain from clenching my teeth to get through the day, I have not strayed from my goals, and my commitment to eating properly, and exercising. As easy as it might hav... Read more
Middle of the Night Madness
Saturday, April 16, 2011      0 comments

I've had several great weeks strung together. Food is on target, exercise continues to increase. Drinking my Crystal Light like crazy, and not touching diet soda outside of my morning caffeine fix (I don't drink coffee, and that is my one vice... Read more
Changes in Thinking - "decadent dinner"
Thursday, April 07, 2011      1 comments

What a difference in my thinking nowadays. Having been doing my own shopping, cooking, all my own meal planning and prepping, I have tried new things, I have added fruits and vegetables to nearly every meal, and I am working on sneaking more ve... Read more
Kicking my own rear

I'm in such a good place today. Shopping for my own groceries, preparing all my own meals, bringing breakfast and lunch to work, coming home, and making a healthy dinner, working out nightly, and starting to push myself further - faster interva... Read more
Positive, and Negative, Reinforcement
Sunday, April 03, 2011      0 comments

I remember as a child, and even now, as an adult, looking for positive reinforcement when I'm on the right track. Trying something new for the first time, and wanting that "Atta Girl" for doing it correctly. Whether it is as a child, in school... Read more
Accountability in April
Friday, April 01, 2011      1 comments

April is here - and I have been anxiously awaiting the date. It's not the start of a new year, but it is the start of a new quarter, and a new month, and something about the "First" and having a blank sheet ahead of me makes me feel like there'... Read more
Anxiously Awaiting April
Wednesday, March 30, 2011      2 comments

It has been a long time since I've graced my SparkPage or Splog with my presence. There have been a lot of changes in the last year, and without placing blame, or pointing fingers, suffice to say, I suffered a severe setback. I am back at the ... Read more

Ok, Splog.. I never named you before, but since you've done a good job of listening when I've been bottling up the crazy, it is about time you had a name. Also, my best buddy calls hers Splog, and this is also a bit of a tribute to her. She ke... Read more

Well, today I let 2 people know what I'm working on. One is Mike, a good friend, who offered me a job in North Dakota, or Oklahoma, if I decide that I need to get out of this area. He knows that I am feeling less than confident at this poi... Read more
12 Steps?
Tuesday, May 26, 2009      1 comments

In the last year and a half, I changed jobs. I went from 15 years in the mortgage banking business, with a successful career, and a path ahead of me on a road I had been comfortable traveling. When the banks fell apart, and property values tank... Read more
My Letter of "Resignation"
Monday, May 25, 2009      8 comments

I don't know exactly when the tide turned. I can't pinpoint a weekend, an afternoon, an evening, where I decided to quit caring about myself. No big red circle on the calendar, no 2 week's notice for my mental file cabinet. Nonetheless, I... Read more

Doin' it Well

"Everything that you do feel right....do it, do it, do it all night." Ok, so I'm not ready to do the elliptical all night, but let me tell you, my legs...the bike cannot give me the same workout as this machine! For the last year, the ... Read more

"I...I am stronger." I'm working on building up my time on the elliptical, and tonight, even after eating dinner, I'm up to 8 minutes of non-stop "ellipticaling" (for lack of a better term) I tell you, this machine kicks my butt! I w... Read more
Healthy Shopping Spree day
Tuesday, January 08, 2008      0 comments

Yes, that looks excessive, and it could be, if we didn't have oatmeal just about every single day for breakfast. Those canisters only last about 3 days, and the boxes cover 2 breakfasts for 2 people, each breakfast coming in at 300 calories. S... Read more
