Friday, January 07, 2011      2 comments

Fresh snow fell overnight. It was just enough to make everything white again but not enough to make a mess of the roads. I started off my day with hummus and pita bread. I needed to leave to take food to the food shelf, and I woke up late. It's ... Read more

Breakfast today was the same as yesterday, oatmeal with golden raisins topped with toasted walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup. It was SO good! After breakfast and some time spent checking e-mail, I started taking veggies out of the refrigerato... Read more

Before I went to bed last night, I set out ingredients for a good breakfast so I wouldn't be tempted to do another shortcut meal of toast and nut butter. I got up later than usual this morning because I stayed up too late watching TV last night.... Read more

I misjudged my time this morning and didn't have time to make oatmeal, so I had pita bread, hummus, and red bell pepper slices for breakfast. It was delicious and kept me full until I got home around 1 PM. After my morning meeting I stopped at W... Read more

Every year I set huge goals for myself. Most of them fall by the wayside to be revisited as I am working on my goals for the NEXT year. This year's end is different. I guess it's because I am different. I really want to change. I truly want to d... Read more

I don't like to exercise. There! I said it! I love to walk, and I love to hike. I actually have a reason for not doing much of that recently. I injured my knees during CPR training back in April (no kneeling pads were available). I think I put ... Read more

Renewed energy
Saturday, May 08, 2010      5 comments

Today I have renewed energy. I thought about my flailing job search when I woke up and realized that I am dog paddling instead of swimming. I am trying to find just anything to get me off the unemployment roster. That's the problem! I am overqua... Read more

Sometimes I feel I am so off track I'll never find my way back to the road I am supposed to be on. Then I realize I am on a journey with no roadmap ... there is no right way to get where I am going. If I follow the paths of others, I am not on m... Read more
