Been a rough week worrying about this hurricane. I honestly think I have some PTSD from last year's experience (almost a year to the day!). We are as prepared as we can be and hoping for the best. I hope everyone in the line of this storm sta... Read more

I love the OA Speakers App (thanks sponsor!) and the Drop the Rock App. When I'm in the car, I almost always turn off the radio and listen to these. Just more ways to get some good stuff in! The one from yesterday was interesting. One thing ... Read more

I had no idea it has been so long since I last posted! So the last couple of weeks have been up and down- but I am truly embracing the "progress not perfection." I am truly making progress and that's exciting! Working on Step 4 with my sponso... Read more

So I've been in my new job since April - same field, but different location and much more direct responsibility for the safety and welfare of children. I also inherited some REALLY poor workers. I am in the throes of having to try my best to d... Read more

I love learning. I also love how OA is helping me "re-learn" things in a whole new perspective. Like the whole "diet and weight loss" thing has become so much more in this program! I'm learning so much about how I operate in this world and ho... Read more

So our pomeagle (half Pomeranian, half Beagle) dog was up and down ALL NIGHT with some kind of hacking cough. We are afraid he might have caught something when we boarded them for the wedding but not sure. Hubby is taking him to the vet at 3:0... Read more

So this last week really shook me up. It started with the wedding weekend and just being out and out exhausted with no chance to catch up on some rest. THEN all hell broke loose at work. By then, I had let go of my healthy habits and stopped ... Read more
Slip and Slide.... Right Into the Tools!

So I have really overbooked myself - some I planned and some I didn't. Of course, I was off last week and then in training for two days, so of course work today was OFF THE CHAIN. Plus we had an emergency in one of the foster homes and my work... Read more

We had the best time in PA! The wedding was beautiful, my song went great, and now I'm ensconced in a hotel room in Raleigh awaiting my next two days of training. The other wonderful thing was NO binging and NO compulsions to do so. Lots of l... Read more

So the drive yesterday was LONG, but I really enjoyed it. We put the map on "avoid highways" so we wouldn't be routed anywhere near I-95 or D.C. So we were in a lot of little towns and there was so much to look at. Yes, it adds a LOT of time to ... Read more

So is every wonderful day we are given. So grateful! Yesterday was busy with "beauty day." I went and had my hair done - got a Brazilian blowout. I think it turned out pretty good. It will be interesting to see if my hair stays this smooth ... Read more

Good day today. Stuck to my action plan. LOVED swimming laps again. That total body workout makes me feel like an Olympic athlete! Tomorrow I'm going to do laps again, then have a "pamper me day" to get ready for the wedding this weekend. G... Read more

It's funny how the universe will make darn sure you get the point sometimes! So, even though I haven't "technically" worked through all the steps (officially on Step 2 with my sponsor right now), I have tried to live what I understand from read... Read more
