Releasing the Frustration

Friday, December 12, 2014      7 comments

I am really glad to be starting a new challenge with my BLC squad of Sapphire Beauties this week. Our gang is genuinely supportive, warm-hearted and a very compassionate group. They are one of my lifelines and also give me a lot of support, whil... Read more

Need to Strengthen My Muscle

Monday, December 01, 2014      3 comments

Been off for a few days --- and perhaps that is why stress seems readily available today at work. I recognize that when I am stressed, it is so much easier to chomp on something even when I am not even hungry. I have been trying to avoid this be... Read more

Making Choices

Monday, November 24, 2014      6 comments

Here's a peek at today's menu, breakfast (at home) and lunch for later. The oatmeal looks like it is overrun by the raisins and possibly is - but it was a small box of... Read more

Lucky Bling

Saturday, November 22, 2014      5 comments

I have a weird relationship with jewelry. I really enjoy certain styles and pieces, but actually don't wear it all that much. I actually make it too, but that was born out of a desire to keep my hands busy and out of the kitchen. In the la... Read more

On the Way to 398

Saturday, November 22, 2014      20 comments

I have had a truly amazing week. I stopped bingeing, turned over a new leaf and began eating healthy and did a version of running with my coach. The culmination of those things showed up today, when I went to weigh in and for the first time in r... Read more

The New Ten Seconds

Friday, November 21, 2014      7 comments

I had an incredibly awesome day with success from top to bottom. I walked to meetings instead of trying to catch a ride, I walked up a big hill instead of taking a shortcut, I ate well and had an amazing session with my coach. First, here'... Read more

Blazing a Trail

Thursday, November 20, 2014      6 comments

There is a thin line between I don't want to and I can't. I could have taken a pill that would have numbed the pain today, but I didn't intentionally. It sounds ridiculous even to me, but this morning I was all about feeling the pain (really sor... Read more

Post Workout and On the Menu, Day 4

Thursday, November 20, 2014      7 comments

The funny thing about today is that I feel so happy, I am nearly giddy. That's one side, but on the other, I am so sore today, it feels like every fiber of my body is aching. It is a result of last night's workout. I know that. I also opted not... Read more

Rocking the Comeback Trail

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      7 comments

How do I feel right at this very minute? Happy. Happier than I can probably put into words. My work day went well - highly productive, and two projects I am leading are going swimmingly. One person that I don't really care for lodged a com... Read more

Table Talk

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      6 comments

The healthy lunch is starting to be a happy habit. This morning when I was assembling it, I realized making my lunch is a very loving thing to do. I am feeding myself in a nourishing way - having healthy food - not to mention how much money I ha... Read more

Finding My Way Back to my Happy Place

Tuesday, November 18, 2014      3 comments

Got trapped a bit at work tonight and thus arrived at the gym late --- but I arrived. I did not shirk it off. I still had a 30 minute plus workout with my trainer, Don, and I felt pretty euphoric about it. Why? Because even I can see I am making... Read more

Dining with the Three Bears

Tuesday, November 18, 2014      4 comments

My intentions were certainly good this morning. (although one of my late mother's favorite expressions was "the road to hell is paved with good intentions.) Perhaps, a little dark. Nonetheless, I got up a bit earlier this morning, and lollygagg... Read more

Grocery Stop

Monday, November 17, 2014      6 comments

Stopped at Trader Joe's on the way home tonight after working a wee bit late. It was kind of crappy out - weather wise - cold and rainy, but it's my only "free" night for the next 2 weeks, so I went. Stopped for gas on the way. It's nice to have... Read more

On the Menu Today - Monday 11/17

Monday, November 17, 2014      3 comments

I'm no cook. I haven't been really making meals since I first moved out - and that was a long time ago. After I got married, hubby preferred to take on that role as he prefers food that is highly seasoned. I don't. He likes things super spicy (x... Read more

Jumping in with Both Feet

Sunday, November 16, 2014      5 comments

I started to write a mea culpa blog earlier in which I laid out all of the things I have been doing wrong, how I crashed and burned and how I veered off course. It feels kind of pointless now, and those I needed to make amends with, I have, so o... Read more
