Paying the Price
Monday, April 22, 2013      1 comments

So, I've done very well with food choices for quite awhile. Admittedly, to the point that I thought maybe...just maybe I had completely overcome the things that used to cause me to stumble. As the saying goes, my reality check bounced. ... Read more
That moment when...
Saturday, March 23, 2013      4 comments

I was coming home from work Friday. A long and challenging work week would be an understatement. I don't usually cook much on Friday evenings but was unable to make the usual Friday evening meal with friends so it was drive-thru time. I con... Read more
Overcoming the Case of "I don't want to" - Part II
Monday, February 25, 2013      3 comments

It was a long full day at work. Everybody was irritable (to include me). This area is bracing for as a friend of mine has so aptly put it "Blizzard of Oz." Another 6-12" of snow expected to fall on the already 6" still on the ground from last we... Read more
Overcoming the case of "I don't want to."
Sunday, February 24, 2013      4 comments

After a bad case of adult tempertantrum, I forced myself into the gym. Nutrition is going great but motivation to keep up the exercise has been a challenge lately. I do allow myself one day out of the weekend off from the gym as well as one wor... Read more

Vacation has been good for my health
Monday, November 29, 2010      0 comments

I am on my last day of a 8 day vacation. I have enjoyed the time off and even more so, it has been good for my health. Physically, mentally, and emotionally it seems to have recharged all levels. I have been able to get back into a work out... Read more
Taking back the joy
Saturday, November 27, 2010      0 comments

Somewhere along the way I lost the joy of the holidays. As somone who has grown tired of being a single, I guess I just suddenly felt the holidays magnified the fact that it is just me. Yesterday I decided I am reclaiming the joy I used to ... Read more
The turkey has landed
Friday, November 26, 2010      1 comments

Okay -- so it wasn't so much the turkey as it was that second piece of pumpkin pie. One holiday meal down and two more to go. I tend to do better at Christmas than Thanksgiving and this thanksgiving meal proved to be the same big challenge. ... Read more
Starting again
Tuesday, November 23, 2010      0 comments

I have come to believe the good habits are a whole lot easier to break than the bad habits. I made good strides when I first started this journey. Like so many others I hit the target and even maintained for awhile and then before I knew it the ... Read more
The dreaded plateau.....
Wednesday, February 18, 2009      0 comments

We all hit it. I've hit it many times over and seem to be right back to staring at the P-word once again. Of course... there has been Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, superbowl, and gatherings "just because." All, of course, are centered aro... Read more
Believing in yourself no matter what
Sunday, November 18, 2007      5 comments

Self defeat. I have been guilty of this many times in my lifetime. It is a difficult thing to beat. Although in large part, I am no longer as critical of myself as I once was; as I am in the process of seeking a change professionally I am f... Read more
One extra hour
Sunday, November 04, 2007      2 comments

What is it about regaining that one hour in the fall?? The morning seems extra peaceful. The cat is even calm. The coffee (aww... the coffeee) tastes better, and I am more rested. I am going out for a walk on the Konza prairie this morning.... Read more
The wisdom of listening
Wednesday, October 24, 2007      0 comments

I find that when I am in a place of complete understanding it is almost always preceded by a time of attentive listening (meaning - I listened more than I spoke). ... Read more
My biggest barrier
Wednesday, October 10, 2007      0 comments

I have to say I have been my biggest barrier for most of my life. However, once I decide to do something I keep after it. Changing eating habits and lifestyle choices has been no different. Once I finally committed to it (for real this time...) ... Read more
Learning from hardships
Tuesday, October 02, 2007      1 comments

Hardships definitely teach us things. Sometimes we don't really know our own self up close and personal until hardship shows up. The biggest thing I have learned so far though regardless of the hardship is that I am human and so are others.... Read more
