Saturday, October 10, 2009      5 comments

Well, it is not surprising to me that my goal of 50 lbs by the age of 50 has not been met, as I have not really been "on program" for quite a while. But there is a silver lining in this, and that is that even though I have not been "on program,... Read more

Lost: My Oomph
Tuesday, June 30, 2009      8 comments

Where oh where did my oomph go? Did it go the way of the sun, which has been so rare here in Massachusetts in June? Has it been drained by a very stressful month of June at work? Has all the activity of the Spring finally caught up with me? P... Read more

A kernel of success in the middle of failure..
Saturday, April 18, 2009      7 comments

You know, failure is not really a word in my vocabulary. Oh, I can get down on myself and think bad things about myself, but ultimately, I have learned in my almost 50 years on this earth that beating myself up is counterproductive to success, ... Read more
