Only destroyed one pair of pants
Sunday, February 05, 2017      0 comments

Yesterday's goal was to get all the pockets off the scrub pants to be modified for the show. I managed to totally destroy the first pair (which is why I always buy a couple of extras) but the rest are safely de-pocketed. I also completed both of... Read more
Blog goals

This month is insane. I have twenty costumes to make and roughly twenty days MAX to get that task done. It seems a rather crazy time to add anything to my already packed agenda but I find that one thing that isn't happening lately that helps mai... Read more
Coping with Sadness and Emotional Eating
Thursday, January 19, 2017      2 comments

On Monday my husband's cousin died from a rare, rapid and aggressive cancer. We had just three days from the time we learned he was terminal until he was gone. I am sad and I am having some issues with emotional eating. So far I am choosing to a... Read more
Focus on Health and the Weight Comes Too
Wednesday, January 11, 2017      2 comments

I realized that I haven't weighed again since I came back this time. I'm fine with that since losing weight isn't my focus (although I do have a ticker down there with a goal). I grabbed the scale this morning just after breakfast and I'm down 3... Read more
Why I HATE Morning Pages
Tuesday, January 10, 2017      1 comments

So I started writing Morning Pages last week. If you're not familiar it's a technique taught by Julia Cameron of "The Artists Way" (and a lesser known work called "The Writer's Diet") and it's supposed to help blocked creatives get unblocked and... Read more
Holy Cow It's Cold!
Saturday, January 07, 2017      1 comments

Got out today to go to auditions. Went out to eat after. Walked a couple of blocks to the restaurant. Hands ache still. We southern folks aren't built for this kind of weather! I really think I'm going to have to join a gym in order to get... Read more
Snow Day In The South
Friday, January 06, 2017      2 comments

I live in Memphis. In Memphis when a snowflake is predicted the shelves of the grocery stores empty of bread, milk and eggs (I've often wondered why those specific items have to do with snow survival but I digress). In Memphis when snow actually... Read more

I had my follow-up with the cardiologist today. We have agreed on a more conservative course of action FIRST before going to the cath lab. He added a vasodilator to my other meds and I will go back in 3 months. For the first time since all this ... Read more
Words, Words, Words
Monday, January 02, 2017      1 comments

I'm doing morning pages and I feel like they are exhausting my supply of words for the day. I hate them which probably means they're exactly what I need to be doing right now. Trust the process. Trust. The. Process.... Read more
New Years 2017
Sunday, January 01, 2017      2 comments

I've been back a week. For 4 of the last 7 days my blood sugar has been below 200. I'm hitting my targets most days. I have an appointment with my cardiologist on Thursday to discuss the images and data from my most recent hospitalization and ma... Read more
Healthy Christmas
Monday, December 26, 2016      7 comments

Enjoyed everything I chose and wanted to enjoy today. Not about to be deprived on Christmas. Still made my goals. Go me! This wasn't the Christmas I planned or wanted but I think perhaps it is the Christmas that I needed. Taking care of ev... Read more
"May I return...to the beginning..."
Saturday, December 24, 2016      6 comments

I'm back after a long season of well suck to be honest...a few days after my last blog post my sister-in-law helped herself to all of my parents-in-law's savings and I slid into a spiral that is just now finally bottoming out. During that interv... Read more
Simple Diet - First Weigh-In
Monday, March 05, 2012      5 comments

285.1 - not as much as I had hoped but I didn't follow the diet as closely as I had planned. My vida loca will never let me do anything according to plan it seems. This is why our family motto is "Improvise, Adapt and Overcome." I consider... Read more

Thought for the day - 1/8/2007
Monday, January 08, 2007      0 comments

You can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth. - Shira Tehrani This dovetails nicely with the scriptural idea of Psalm 90:12 "So teach [us] to number our days, that we may apply... Read more
