Glad DD is home
Wednesday, December 21, 2011      1 comments

I slept in until 10:30 today. Let me say that this is NOT my normal routine. I have been sick for a full day now and I simply could not get out of bed this morning. Could not. Period. Thank heaven my DD is home for Winter break. She ... Read more
Sick today
Tuesday, December 20, 2011      3 comments

Boy, am I glad that chores and Xmas tasks are done. Today, after working out (with no problem), I am sick as a dog, with some sort of stomach bug. All I can do is sit in my recliner and run to the bathroom. UGH...... Read more

and I am feeling joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart! I am slowly-but-surely getting used to an empty nest, but it's always nice to have the nest full for a little while. DS turns 23 on Friday and we are going out for dinner that night... Read more
2011 recap
Sunday, December 18, 2011      5 comments

Since January, I've regained the fitness level that I had when I was newly married. I began the year huffing and puffing my way up stairs and depresssed at the thought of lifting anything heavier than my Rat Terrier, Newton (he's 15 pounds, soa... Read more

Geez, I have sore glutes today. You know, the medial glute, the smaller one that supports the larger. Boy oh boy are mine sore! Whine, whine, whine! I have stretched so many times today, I'm surprised I got anything else done. I ... Read more
I did my least favorite workout today
Friday, December 16, 2011      6 comments

I own many video workouts, both on DVD and VHS. There is one that really works my butt a lot, and that I hate with a flaming passion. I've been making myself do this workout every few months, just to see if I can get through it. I did. ... Read more
Feeling "squirrely" today
Thursday, December 15, 2011      2 comments

I admit that sometimes I still have days where I'm not comfortable in my own skin. This used to drive me, almost immediately, to overeat in order to numb those prickly feelings of anxiety. For some reason (not sure why yet - working on t... Read more
Why thrift store shopping is not punishment
Wednesday, December 14, 2011      19 comments

I have a ball at thift stores - the excitement of that hidden treasure gives me a thrill. Anyone can go to a mall and find something - I gamble every time I walk into Goodwill, St. Vincent de Paul or the Salvation Army. I never know what I... Read more

Reaffirming the method
Sunday, December 11, 2011      5 comments

Since January of 2011, I have lost 60 pounds. I've done this by beginning to understand why I overate, and by challenging myself to change those habits. This involves a lot of self-talk, which would look rather silly to an outsider. Somet... Read more

Again, with the gratitude
Friday, December 09, 2011      4 comments

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitud... Read more

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my vacation. We went to an all-inclusive resort in Playa del Carmen in Mexico with some friends. It was wonderful to spend a week being pampered, and having the only decision in our day was whether we should... Read more
