Get Over It
Wednesday, June 23, 2010      12 comments

As I sat in a *processing* room at the hair salon last night, looking like something out of a sci-fi movie, the words floating from the sound system speakers seemed to begin penetrating deep into my heart. They just seemed to echo how my heart w... Read more
Scaling Emotional Obstacles
Tuesday, June 22, 2010      11 comments

I'm depressed tonight. Not exactly something you'd want to hear from someone who is bipolar. But, this depression may last awhile and I guess I had been preparing for it, but still had hoped it would not happen. But, here I am...down and br... Read more
A+ for Most Improved

Back in the spring 2000 semester, I needed a few filler classes to finish my degree, so I took "Exercise to Music". Better known as: Aerobics. At the beginning of the class, we had to take a fitness exam. You'd think that by living on a college ... Read more
Dog eat dog

As my wonderful poochy, Sampson, lays next to me, I came to realize that I feed him better than I do myself. I make sure he eats natural dog food that does not contain that bad stuff. He's lean, trim, and full of energy. I'm not. But, I'm gettin... Read more

Monday, June 14, 2010      6 comments

Today is day 1 of the 8 week battle, and I'm stoked! I've been so tired of being stuck at what seems to be a plateau for way too long. I so long to be back in Onderland again and hope that this time around will be just what it takes to get there... Read more
Divine intervention?

I got mad today...REAL mad! And for good reason...I think. I'm going on principles...so I am right. But, that's beside the point. The point is that I fumed for hours after a lunch hour spat. At that point, I wanted chocolate because that wa... Read more
Finale: 8 Week Battle #8
Monday, May 24, 2010      3 comments

For the last 8 weeks, I've been participating in the 8 week battle #8 in pursuit of the elusive "Onederland". While my goal for this past 8 weeks was 200, I fell short by 8.4 pounds. But, that's not so bad when I started at 212. 3.6 lbs total...... Read more
It just makes me SICK!
Monday, May 17, 2010      13 comments

I was not a happy camper today. I had gained 2 lbs thanks to eating a lot of sodium filled foods this weekend and not drinking enough water. But, that doesn't excuse my behavior today. And, it will never excuse this kind of behavior EVER again. ... Read more
Taking it to the streets
Thursday, May 13, 2010      7 comments

Have you ever just been so overwhelmed by emotion that you just can't think straight? I hit that point last night. So much so that if provoked I would bite. I had planned on going to the gym for aqua fit after work, and had plenty of time to get... Read more
Thoughts on Civil Discourse
Tuesday, May 11, 2010      3 comments

There is some concern that civil discourse has become a thing of the past with the advent of the internet. The ability to post with anonymity has given people the ability to state their opinions in ways they normally would not present face to fa... Read more

This one is gonna be short today...I'm wiped out! When I moved to Minnesota back in 2006, I had never ever tried sushi. In fact, a few friends had ordered it when we've gone to Japanese steakhouses, but I just turned my nose up with a resou... Read more
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down...
Monday, May 03, 2010      6 comments

Okay, so maybe not down, but relaxed. Something about Mondays always seem to make me feel worn out and tired, but when it starts to rain AFTER I get home and have a chance to unwind, then it seems to relax me. What is it about that? If it is rai... Read more
Will I ever be happy?
Friday, April 30, 2010      7 comments

I actually wanted to post this a couple of days ago, but it was shuffled back into my mind with everything else after the fall. I will openly state right now that I struggle with bi-polar disorder. I live the majority of my life in a more ... Read more
Big Girls Don't Bounce Any more
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      7 comments

It started out as my desire to take my wondermutt for a long walk this evening after his day couped up in the apartment. We decided to keep going and keep going until it was finally time to go home. On the trail, a chipmunk goes scurrying across... Read more
