The Balance of the Scales- Day 6 update (for Friday)

One of the themes in my life is definitely balance. As you know, this past week I've begun the process to release some extra weight. I'm not a patient person and I want it gone now. Don't you just love arguing with reality? I don't usually get great results when I do that. Anyway, I followed a very strict program for the last week and it's not fun. I know, it's not "supposed" to be fun, but I guess I look at it this way. In my mind, there are three main indicators that what I'm doing is working- 1)…

When We Admit Something To Ourselves (We’re usually the last to know!)

Day Four was so much better than Day Three! After a sleepy late start, I missed exercise yesterday in the morning, because of pre-scheduled appointments. I broke my own rule and jumped right out of bed and into work without taking the time for me. Sometimes when there are too many things on our plate, it's difficult to schedule time for us. In spite of missing my walk, the day evolved into a very productive one. I had good energy all day and wasn't hungry or grumpy. Most importantly, whatever was going on the day before seems to have gone…

Where’s This Coming From?- Day Three Update

In case you wondered, on occasion, I too have days that are less than perfect, and today was one of them. Instead of bouncing out of bed to go for an early walk, I wanted to just roll over and go back to sleep. I was up far too late last night talking with friends on Twitter and writing yesterday's blog. Yeah, I know, my choice. That's exactly what I thought this morning too, so I dragged my butt out of bed and took Koda for a long walk. The walk was great and I had plenty of energy. I…

Thanks for Your Support (Day Two Update)

I believe my blog yesterday resonated with quite a few people. Between the email, the tweets, the calls and the comments, it seems I'm not the only one dealing with this issue. To all who reached out with love and support, thank you! I really want you to know how much it means to me. Now, let me give you the update on Day Two…. I woke up full of energy and took Koda (our 1-1/2 year old Samoyed pup) for a 1-1/2 hour hike in the mountains.  It was just beautiful! (Yep, that's a photo of where we were,…

How Did I Let This Happen To Me?

A recent tweet lead to a conversation, which in turn showed up today as a catalyst to change my life. The tweet was from my friend Dr. Leslie Romer. Dr. Leslie is the author of a book entitled, Getting Into Your Pants (meaning your own!). I interviewed her a year ago as a Luminary for Inspire Me Her message Saturday was an innocent invitation to get together. My mind instantly went to the failure I felt for not being able to get into my pants! She's so thin and beautiful and I felt embarrassed at gaining weight since we…
