Hokey Pokey and Other News

One step forward one step back.  A good meal, a bad meal, a good day, a bad day. Life is a bit of a vicious cycle. Some days I'm in control. Some days, I forget all of my coping skills. Yesterday was a bad day. Today, I'm doing well. When I make tomorrow another good day, I'll be moving forward. And, as you know, forward is my favorite direction.

My major focus these days is my new online business. If I can't get any more hours at work, I have to find a new source of income. I'm still in the design and stock inventory stage, but I hope to go public by the end of the month. This is my version of getting a five yr old ready for the first day of kindergarten.

There's a new box of spinach in my refrigerator. This particular brand of spinach comes in giant clear plastic containers. Instead of recycling them, I use the containers to organize inventory and supplies for my new business venture. The more I eat, the more containers I have stacked about my work room. They remind me of my goals :-)  The ultimate in green living... reduce waste, reduce waist.  Epic win.


  1. I buy the clamshells of arugula, spinach, and mixed baby lettuces, just cause they seem to stay nicer longer than in the bags. And organic is pricey, so I don't want early withering.

    Yep. You can only make progress if you stop the backward steps or significantly reduce them. :) Go forward, forward, forward.

  2. Girl, its been more than a month. Update. Come on! :)

    I'm joining a challenge this summer (runs June 6 through August, um, 28, I think). It's 12 weeks of working toward the weight loss/fitness goals. If you're interested, look at the Slimmer This Summer badge on the upper right hand corner of my blog. It takes you to Debbi's page of Debbi Does Dieting....and she's the uberhost. :) There ARE rules. But, hey, if ya still wanna work on the fatfighting, why not join in?

    Okay, hope all is well. Later..

  3. Well, it's been over a year since you opened this blog with a goal of getting fit and to an ideal weight for a particular reason(s).

    Did you give up?

    Did you make progress in this past year plus month? Why not update? If you made progress since April--four months now--then update. If you didn't, then recommit.

    Don't give up on THIS dream!
