Reset day 89: from spotlight to the trenches

Friday, August 28, 2015      7 comments

Tuesday I had my moment in the spotlight. I danced on the stage of life. I basked in its warmth. I soaked it in. I enjoyed every minute of it (except the minute I saw the photos). Today, I am back in the trenches of life. I am no... Read more

Reset day 88: blah blah blah

Thursday, August 27, 2015      9 comments

Yesterday was an awesome day. I logged over 25,000 steps on the fitbit. When you are a walker, not a runner, and work full time, that is a LOT of steps! I stayed on track with my food yesterday too! Yippee. Today those pesky bagel... Read more

We had our office Summer Staff party yesterday. I received an award for 10 years of service. I struggled with what to wear to the party which was being held at the local gardens. You know, summer dinner party at the gardens... cute summery su... Read more

Monday, August 17, 2015      8 comments

Yesterday we celebrated my son's birthday with the family. There were bbq ribs on the grill, fresh corn on the cob, side dishes and of course cake and ice cream. As I ate, I thought to myself: the celebrating never ends. Life IS a celebration... Read more

Thursday, August 13, 2015      13 comments

I am back from vacation. It was wonderful to be away. I reconnected with an old friend I hadn't seen in years. I laughed until my face hurt. I challenged myself with some hikes. I set my feet on the North Country Trail and planted a seed. ... Read more

Reset day 60: Flounder is more than a fish

Thursday, July 30, 2015      10 comments

Ever feel like that fish someone caught and tossed in the boat - flopping around knowing that this isn't good, that you really WANT to be somewhere else, a feeling of panic, flopping around but going nowhere? I kind of feel like that today. I'... Read more

Reset day 58: Tucker Tuesday and mother nature's paintbox

Wednesday, July 29, 2015      9 comments

It has been hot here. Hot AND humid. Sticky. Yucky. Not exactly the weather that one wants to go out in and walk a big, black dog. The dog was panting before I put on his leash! So, change of plans. Instead of walking the dog, why not... Read more

Restart Day 57: this is your life...

Monday, July 27, 2015      5 comments

Well vacation is over.... for now. Looking back at vacation, I feel pretty good about the choices I made. My exercise was low. I knew it would be. We spent more than 6 hours each day in the car. None of our lodging places had workout r... Read more

Day 46: I can..... I did

Thursday, July 16, 2015      14 comments

Yesterday was a bit of a struggle for me. I got home from work and was thinking supper. My first thought? Make a box of mac and cheese and down the WHOLE thing. It just sounded comforting and good. I got the pan out of the cupboard and fill... Read more

Wednesday, July 15, 2015      9 comments

Yesterday it was inspired.... today, lethargic! That old pendulum just keeps swinging. Positive side, it won't stay here. After work yesterday, I had a nice dinner with my friend. We went to a Mexican restaurant and I had chicken and ric... Read more

Reset Day 44: Inspired

Tuesday, July 14, 2015      7 comments

Well yesterday was a challenge. Self forgiveness and acceptance comes hard for this girl, especially when it comes to not reaching my goals. However, I did manage to reign it in most of the time. My son had softball practice after work. ... Read more

Reset Day 43: 50 shades of popcorn

Monday, July 13, 2015      6 comments

I had a busy weekend. I worked a fundraiser Saturday - my job was to take money at the door and sell tickets for food. So, I sat on my butt from 9-5:30 with little time to get up and stretch. Not the best for getting steps in! However, a won... Read more

Thursday, July 09, 2015      6 comments

Oh boy, day two at work after a long weekend and there are those dang Panera cookies and bagels. I didn't have any fresh fruit to bring this morning, just a protein bar. I need to get to the grocery store! I did break down and have a quarter ... Read more
