It was one of those days, I picked up glasses to wash and broke them. I called to get my muffler fixed and found out it was going to be twice what I had budgeted. Knowing I needed a tranquil place to escape to yesterday my daughter and I gave ou... Read more
Being a role model for myself
Monday, May 23, 2011      6 comments

After 4 weeks of sulking and pity party, which I will admit I am not guaranteeing won't return, I'm getting organized and accepting the changes my life has to take. Which also means I've started holding myself accountable for being a role mod... Read more
Good habits don't like to give up
Sunday, May 22, 2011      2 comments

Eating healthy and working out apparently are as hard to give up as junk food and vegging on the couch. This last week continued to be a struggle and what I've noticed that no matter how depressed I get the good habits are still trying ... Read more
Panic, fear, resentment and food take over

I lost my job. Those words have been haunting me for the last 11 days. No matter how many times I keep being told, it wasn't your fault, I keep coming back to those four nasty words. I was out of work for 30 mins and I had my first offer of e... Read more
I just got downsized
Thursday, April 28, 2011      10 comments

Ugh I just got dreaded call. Cutbacks, too many layers of management, have to trim. Your job is being eliminated. I'm officially unemployed. No more amazing trips around the world, no more building sales programs, no more telecomuting. I... Read more
Grocery shopping on an empty stomach
Wednesday, April 20, 2011      6 comments

I came down to Oregon on business yesterday and I always stay in a suite when I'm here with a kitchen so of course I stopped at the store before checking in to do some shopping. Normally I don't do grocery shopping on an empty stomach, if I d... Read more

I was so excited for this past weekend, I had a fun adventure booked for 2 of my kids and myself to go zipping through the trees and then it hit. Sinus infection. Not just any sinus infection but the king of all sinus infections. I don't care... Read more

Happy butt wiggle dances! I have wanted to go ziplining for months now and have waited out the winter months. I just booked an adventure course for my daughter's 16th birthday as a surprise. There are rope ladders to climb and you go from 6... Read more
Sometimes the cookie wins
Wednesday, April 06, 2011      2 comments

By 9 this morning I wanted a cookie. Knowing it was too early to have a cookie and where it would lead to I grabbed a water and poured myself into my work. Time flew by and I didn't think about the cookie till at least 9:15. Ok, not so much f... Read more

It's been a long day, my first conference call was at 6 AM, it's 7 PM and I'm just hopping on my last one of the day. Knowing that it was going to be like this today I shuffled around dinner and tonight's jog. You know all those lessons we... Read more
Putting one foot in front of the other
Monday, April 04, 2011      7 comments

Last night I was full of energy and really wanted to run. My husband wanted to walk. This can actually work. Since my husband has almost a foot on me his strides are much longer than mine and I have to walk fast just to keep up to him. As he ... Read more

What a great feeling

My rings are lose again. The shirt that I bought in Dublin fits again. I love this shirt but the past 2 months it's been too snug, I put it on this morning and it fits perfectly. I did it and I'm pretty darn proud of myself. There were ... Read more
Good wins

I'm very happy that after a day of "OMG are you kidding me stress eating" the next day and today I carried on like nothing happened. If anything I increased my exercise to combat the stress work was causing. Now that is change! I've star... Read more
