Big Brother - who is YOUR competition?
Thursday, June 29, 2017      8 comments

Wednesday, June 28, 2017      42 comments

I can't remember just which year I finally applied for and was accepted by the National Weight Control Registry... I know I dragged my feet, because I didn't trust that my maintenance was solid or perfect (we all know about Polly the perfectioni... Read more
Funny thing about blogging...
Tuesday, June 27, 2017      27 comments

The funny thing about blogging is reading the comments and seeing what slices of your blog hit various of your Spark buds as significant. Some of that is just based on where they are in their own journey, but to be honest... sometimes the comme... Read more

I said I needed to go back to the chapter 1 exercises in Fierce Conversations by Susan Scott after I did my first assignment from Chapter 2 (writing my thoughts about myself, my life, my work). And I need to switch to the book's vocabulary:... Read more
A thoughtful Sunday... about my work
Sunday, June 25, 2017      24 comments

This is a continuation of the assignment from the Fierce Conversations book by Susan Scott... I was to write my thoughts about myself, my life, and my work. Myself and my life were covered in earlier blogs. This is perhaps the hardest of t... Read more

I wish I had pictures from yesterday's workout with BJ (my trainer). I sent her a text yesterday morning, giving her the heads up that I had run 4.6 miles the evening before, instead of the planned 2 miles. I wanted to head off at the pass any... Read more

The Alzheimer's Association is putting on a big push this week! Last night my neighborhood running store teamed up with them to sponsor a run/walk event by the title name: The Longest Day, corresponding, of course with the longest sunrise to s... Read more
My thoughts about me... and why I need to go back to the first exercise
Tuesday, June 20, 2017      30 comments

When I was musing over the three topics: what I think and feel about myself, my life and my work over the weekend, I did let my fingers type along. Sometimes just seeing it in writing gives you the idea of what you need to work on. Of course,... Read more
The exercises from the Fierce Conversations book
Monday, June 19, 2017      33 comments

We interrupt the "thoughts about self" for the race report
Sunday, June 18, 2017      38 comments

Although, face it, all my blogs are a form of "thoughts about self", the exercise from the book is going to wait for later. About the race: I kind of jumped the gun. Why? A least partly because I already paid for it, and I'm frugal (chea... Read more

Saturday, June 17, 2017      23 comments

This is continued from the previous blog... thanks to all of you who are choosing to "play along"... whether you wrote a word or phrase in the comments or not (if you're thinking or writing in your own journals, paper or electronic, that works, ... Read more

Friday, June 16, 2017      30 comments

Y'all know if you've been reading my blogs over the years, that I go after self-help, analysis kinds of books, from time to time. I have two in progress at the moment. Fierce Conversations: Achieving Success at Work & in Life, One Conversa... Read more
