I added more training today…

By |October 31st, 2016|

Day 334 - Additional training started today. I think I was momentarily stunned by the fact that the trainers were dressed as The Junk Yard Dog, Richard Simmons, and...I'm not sure if we found Waldo but he was terrific too! [...]

An Inspired Halloween Costume!

By |October 30th, 2016|

Day 333 - I love the symmetry of 333. For loads of obvious reasons...that make total sense to me. Just like this inspired Halloween costume. Day 333 of my weight loss journey, with my belly still sticking out, (however decidedly [...]

Well-meaning liars and soothsayers…

Day 332 - Human nature is what we, as humans, have to work with. By nature we want to believe, be loving, and kind. (Unless you're a sociopath, but that is another story.) When I began my journey to reclaim [...]

Anger is poison…

By |October 29th, 2016|

Day 331 - Today I could see I am achieving my goals and am super proud of myself. It could have been a shitshow today...and it wasn't. Instead of feeling like an anger powered, poisonous toxic waste dump considering a certain confounding [...]

Day 327 - Tomorrow is my sister, Mary Eleanor's birthday. This photo is but a glimpse of our family home's side porch. She spent countless hours sitting there. Right off the rose garden. Overlooking the City of Los Angeles. We [...]

B.K. (Before kids)

By |October 24th, 2016|

Day 326 - It's our wedding anniversary this weekend and there are no coincidences. I tripped across this photo of us "before kids." It seems like yesterday. Bummer. I let someone borrow this dress and never got it back. (tears) [...]
