Don't let anyone tell you that small successes aren't a big deal, or that the "baby steps" you are taking on your journey do not amount to much. Nay sayers are toxic, they add negative energy to a situation, they take the positive energy you ha... Read more

Lately my blogs have been about what I have been doing wrong and what I am going to do to change it. All really good ideas, but not really effective at motivating me to do things differently. I just feel guilty and somewhat fail-y, because my ... Read more

Wednesday, May 29, 2013      3 comments

Recently I fell into a slump. I planned it, sort of. I had a lot going on, company, celebration, family gathering and food and drink. Rather than make a scene in that I was calorie counting and exercising and generally being a sore thumb, I d... Read more

Recently I decided to try to get 100 points every day. I am not being crazy about it, just trying to amuse myself. Today I chose not to exercise. I have a headache and lots of reasons--just no awesome ones. It is really hard to get a hundred... Read more
