Today is the first day of a week long vacation! Deserved? Probably not. Earned? No, no, no. Wanted? Oh yes! Hard to believe that I let a blog of negativity stay on here for over a week. But although some days were ok during this past week, ... Read more

it can be of questionable effect. A fancy way of saying it can be lousy. Week 4 of the 28 day plan ended with less than sterling results. I lost my motivation and couldn't find it anywhere. It just wasn't one of my better weeks. Also found ... Read more

I've completed 21 days of the 28 day Plan and things are going swimmingly. I have goals clearly defined. I have consistently met my Fast Break goals. I have a vision collage of sorts. (No one would ever accuse me of having any artistic ability, ... Read more

My reward for losing 10 pounds was a weekend in New Orleans. Was in New Orleans on Sunday and the city went nuts after the Saints won the superbowl. Mega party mode for as far as you could see! I did great on my 4 day adventure. Ate within ... Read more

Thought I'd share with you what my journal reads for today. It may help to know that I have felt excessively challenged to throw in the towel for the past couple of days. Didn't happen. Won't happen. But self needed a stern talking to. QUIT... Read more

without warning I lost every bit of energy I had. It continued for 3 days, and only this afternoon do I finally feel human again. During this time my mind has been jelly - incapable of defined thought. Oh I thought a lot about goals and w... Read more

Took a couple of days out of the mainstream with DH and The Spark. Feeling loved and motivated. Also recognizing the importance of goals and how best to set them for myself. I've been wandering blindly through the maze, expecting to find gold a... Read more

What a dismal turn of events. I failed to keep the quit on Day 8. I am determined though and am repeating the start - again. I believe I simply was going helter-skelter toward my goals and tripped over my own shoe laces. Typically I have had th... Read more
Day 2 Smoke Free

My second day as a non-smoker. Surprising thing is I haven't had any need for the nico gum. I have had minor cravings but told myself it would pass and darned if it didn't. This time I seem, for the moment at least, to be mellower than pre... Read more

Christmas is almost here. Everywhere people are hurrying to accomplish the things they think must be done prior to the holiday. Few stop to realize that the 6 kinds of cookies or the 3 different pies are not what this is really all about. ... Read more
Procrastinate, Hibernate, Be A Winner???
Wednesday, December 16, 2009      3 comments

Procrastination is painful to the mind and to the spirit. If I'm not going to do what needs to be done, then I could just sleep through (hibernate) with the same results. Experts contend that procrastination may be a response to anxiety, st... Read more

Only 10 days until Christmas Day. Lots of opportunities to blow all the good I've done on my weight loss journey. I've decided its really all about counting... 1) how many calories in those fingerfilled tastes of my yummy holiday bak... Read more
