Day 2 of MT: Part Deaux
Sunday, April 27, 2014      5 comments

I got my Mojo back. I'm in the Groove. I got a Grip. I got over the Hump. It's all mental. I had to get some craziness in my system out. I found out that if I eat too many bagels with cream cheese, lasagna, cheesy Italian food and e... Read more
Changing up the game. It's time. Again. Really. Uh, maybe?

I like that we balance each other's highs and lows. What a great group of supporters we are to each other. I hit a rough patch. The job took another turn and sometimes I wish I never left the last one. I anticipated taking those 2-3 hours... Read more
Back to tough-soon.

I almost got through today back into my tough form. Aha, the scourge of the gummie bunnies. I can skip the best chocolates, I lost the war with sour sugar. No worries; I plan to be totally back on track in a day or two. I had to wind do... Read more
Missing the "voice" of a Spark Friend and knowing it won't be heard again
Wednesday, April 23, 2014      12 comments

KOMAL53 first came into my circle of friends when I was searching for Indian recipes 3 years ago. She had placed volumes of curries and family secret recipes on Spark Recipes and I had to thank the chef. Visit her recipes; they are some of the m... Read more

It's getting harder to get pictures of the grandkids even though we are only a few miles apart. Busy lives. Lucas, GS1 Benjamin GS2 and me ... Read more
How I forgot my eating habits for one frustrating weekend or: Holy week turned into Holy cow!
Monday, April 21, 2014      7 comments

It started with a day of serious pissed off. I'm trying to rise above some personal frustration and after 100+ days, I blew up. Imagine that; work didn't do it! I ate the cheese. That would not have been so bad but the manner in which it occu... Read more
A beautiful day

It simply is. The sun is shining, the grass is becoming green and I threw out my dead hot tub. A good 10 years of winter star gazing, snow removal to access- sometimes 2 feet! I enjoyed it immensely but one day was done. My electric bill is... Read more
Down to the business of "me" time

I will be Florida in two weeks, for a week. DH can sit in the hotel and watch TV while I ponder beach strolls and attempt not to get burned while splashing in some water. Perhaps a day trip to the Everglades...a bit of a drive from Saint Pete'... Read more
Day for reflection
Friday, April 18, 2014      7 comments

I'm not atheist or religious. I simply have good morals and observe what works best and feels right. Today marks a day of reflection for me. The suffering of humanity boiled down into the reflection of a life of a single man. A week of refl... Read more
Taking a bit of a break
Wednesday, April 16, 2014      6 comments

My jump into my next MT phase hit a snag. I need a break, a "day off" from everything. I'm contemplating playing hooky today from work too. 4 months without a day off. I've noticed a change in my eating, a creep in of old ways. Just one ... Read more
Getting beyond some memories and making new ones

I met my brother at the cemetery Saturday, what a perfect spring day! We both thanked Dad for picking the perfect place, a veteran's cemetery in a woodland park in the middle of nowhere. We were privileged to witness a funeral. The loved ones a... Read more
Sad few days and appreciating the good things

Sometimes you have to hug your kids. Recently my daughter's friends, kids I watched grow up, lost their newborn to a genetic defect. She came into the world with her parents knowing she would not be in it for long. They have handled themse... Read more
Learning to give up white food
Wednesday, April 09, 2014      9 comments

I'm not eating any special or total diet. Can't abide juice, not even fruit juices. I like my water straight, my food chewable. I mix cooked and raw veggies, still have a "hankerin;" for real meat. I try organic if I think about it, but if... Read more

You help me when I'm down, you help me when I'm up! I feel sooo vindicated after the first of 3 days of inspection! They told my bosses what an huge job I had done, how much I had ahead of me and told them that what I had done was exactly... Read more
On being plain old tough
Tuesday, April 08, 2014      6 comments

Tough is surviving this cold. I got what may have been 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep. It feels wonderful. Tough is knowing that when I go to work today, the administrators lined up to meet the inspectors will be keeping me busy. They've ... Read more
