Finding my way through my forties

Reward — May 16, 2008


Sorry for the lack of postings lately – work has been crazy and life has been even crazier.  I have a post about accountability rolling around in my brain, just no time to put words to keyboard.  Here’s a question for you that I have been thinking about lately – do you use food as a reward?  I know the current wisdom is to say never never ever use food as a reward, but I like food, and I like to be rewarded, so is a weekly splurge after weigh in a boon or a bust?  I would loooove to know everyone’s thoughts on this one – should make for some interesting discussions!  And if you do use food as a reward, what kind of food?  Do you go for chocolate or ice cream, or chocolate ice cream?  How about alcohol – do you use a glass of wine as a reward (my preference would be a margarita, but that’s just me).  All you lurkers out there, now is the time to make your voice heard on this oh-so-very important issue!  And I promise to deliver a real post next week when things have slowed down a bit (I hope). 


Have a great weekend y’all!! 


I cant think of a title for this post. — March 25, 2008

I cant think of a title for this post.

I love coffee. I mean I really really love coffee. It is comforting and warm and when I don’t have it I miss it. Is it weird that I feel the same way about my husband? Is it weird that I thought of my love for coffee before my husband? Hmmm.

 Although I love coffee, I just can’t wrap my love around Starbucks. I have tried, really I have, but every time I go in there, I walk out feeling like “I can’t believe I just paid $4 for this so-so coffee”. Oh well. I still love coffee. You might be surprised to know that as much as I love coffee, I don’t drink more than one or two cups per day. I know people who drink POTS of coffee every day – that’s just too much love for one day. I like my love a little at a time – wish I could say the same for chocolate! I like loads and loads of chocolate, which is why I’m sheepishly avoiding the scale this afternoon. I can’t bear to see how much weight I have gained over the last week. Damn you chocolate bunnies and your chocolatey goodness!!!

Wow this is turning into one weird random post.
Day one of Tigerlilly’s challenge went well. I did 2 miles on the treadmill in 40 minutes. I’d like to do 3 miles in 45 minutes, and I think I can if I really try. TL would like for us all to do 6 miles per day, but right now, that ain’t happening for me!! But in a month, who knows? It could happen! I’m planning on another 2 miles today – I have WW this afternoon, but dinner is already in the crockpot, so that will free up some time for me to get in a work out when I get home. When I was in college, my roommate and I used to walk 2-3 miles every day. She literally forced me to go with her every day, including WEEKENDS! At the time I thought it was torture, but now it’s a necessity, and I really enjoy the endorphins. Mmmmm…endorphins….mmmmm.

Okay, well since they pay me to work, that is what I should be doing. Have a great day y’all!!

Crushing — February 14, 2008


I have a crush on my hair today.  It looks awesome – and my makeup is good too. Lipstick is still on and no raccoon eyes as of yet.  My red shirt and black corduroy blazer are kickin it too.  I may have to take myself out on a date tonight!!

Just wanted to say Happy Valentine’s Day to all my blogging buddies – you all RAWK!  Now go eat some chocolate and flirt with a stranger!!
