Intent to Improve
Tuesday, March 22, 2016      5 comments

I've been off-track lately. I am once again paying attention to what I eat, how much sleep I get and how much exercise I am getting. I just started doing this yesterday. My morning weight was down 2/10 of a pound. We'll see how it's going ... Read more

I am starting the day off right. I made french toast with almond milk and egg, but double dipped the egg mixture (dip cook, re-dip, cook again). So for one egg, I only use 2 pieces of toast. Topped with defrosted blueberries and walnuts, and a s... Read more
Day 4 - Doing ok
Sunday, December 06, 2015      1 comments

I've been doing decently on the food and exercise. I have been cutting back on sugar and carbs, since fats are not much of a problem for me. Paradoxically, I am eating more breakfast. I'm following the Coach Nicole 28 day DVD that I got fr... Read more

I thought I'd make some notes about today - Today I exercised, got in 10000 steps and did not eat any sugary things (well some dried mango and also some fruit). No candy! I also took the leftover brownies and also the toffee into work and left i... Read more

I really like to work. That said, lately I've been trying to manage a difficult situation, and I am finding it tough. I think I am breaking through on it, yet I suspect that I am still going to get a black eye for not getting the essential ... Read more
Leadership Skills
Thursday, May 07, 2015      2 comments

I am practicing leadership skills with two roles in my life - president of my Toastmaster club and chair of the quilt show. This is stretching me in ways that I did not expect, but it's good. One of the things that I am learning is that as ... Read more

I decided to remove an edging on the shawl I was making, since it wasn't looking good. All I have to do is weave in the ends and I am done! For exercise, I walked in the AM and Danced in the PM and just tooled around otherwise. I did check ... Read more
Work Semi-Drama
Friday, April 10, 2015      1 comments

This week I had some semi-drama at work. A group wanted a report, and I needed to create it by querying the database. Unfortunately, my skill at database queries is a little lacking, so I got help from a colleague. He's a really decent guy and l... Read more

Yesterday I went to the memorial service of a friend. She had kidney problems her whole life, and it eventually got her. Ginny was one of those people - not perfect, but sweet and loving most often. I remember her making me feel welcome an... Read more
Philosophy - reasons why I can
Saturday, March 07, 2015      5 comments

Today I want to say something about what I tell myself. There is a philosophy I got from a tape that I got from the Shad Helmstetter organization. It is "I'm always finding reasons why I can get something done, instead of finding reasons why I c... Read more

I have been spending time thinking about when I feel very sensitive (mostly at work), and how to keep from letting it get in my way. I, not unlike many others, want everyone to like me (actually I want everyone to adore me). This gets in m... Read more
