Thursday is my favorite day of the week. I love anticipating what the weekend will hold..and I love that the week is almost over. It holds a little of a mystery…wondering how the weekend will go….

What’s your favorite day of the week and why?


All or nothing

July 21, 2009

What is it with the “all or nothing” attitude I have adopted somewhere in my life? If I exercise …it’s all…or nothing…every day or not at all. If I eat junk…it’s not just a piece…it’s everything or nothing…. Same with dieting… I am really strict…or not…

This has to stop.  It is so unhealthy. ! Why do we do this? Is this what it means to have an addictive-type personality?

Things to ponder….

Lonely…but a loner?

July 17, 2009

I think I’m kind of a loner-type person. It’s quite strange because I am a teacher and love that….but down time, I prefer to spend alone….However it can be very lonely at times…that doesn’t even make sense, I know.

I have all these thoughts going on in my head…conversations with myself….but not really with many others. Why is that? I used to be called CHATTY KATHY in high school…so it hasn’t always been like this..when did it start and why?

Things to ponder!

Why do we talk so negatively to ourselves? We say things to ourselves we would never say to anyone else.  I am going to make an effort to silence the inner negative talk. Join me!

Have a fabulous day!

tea before bed

July 14, 2009

I like to relax at night with tea…. I love to experiment with different kinds. Lately I’ve been on a blueberry kick… I mix it with a tea bag of St. John’s Wort…very relaxing!

What’s your favorite way to relax prior to bed?

Plastic surgery

July 10, 2009

SO… my son has had this cyst over his eyebrow for about 4 months now. It has grown substantially. I took him to the dermatologist who referred us to a plastic surgeon. Today was the consultation. RESULT: He has to have it surgically removed! Joy!

We have had 4 days of rainy type weather…we’ve needed it..lbut I’m glad to see the sun today. I plan on vegging out at the pool with my youngest son and one of his friends! It will be a great Friday!

Finding Joy…

July 9, 2009

What is joy? A feeling of happiness?  A momentary feeling…or long-term? I believe it’s long term.

What heppens to those old couples you see in a restaurant sitting staring out the window unable to make conversation anymore? Are they bored? Do they no longer find joy in one another’ s company? Have they run out of things to say? Or is it deeper than that? Is there really joy there…and words are no longer needed to fill the empty space? Do they instead pay attention to the details of the restaurant…or the lines on the face of the waiter/waitress…wondering what caused those? Saving those comments for later…or keep them to oneself…..



July 7, 2009

What inspires me? Do I follow my dreams? Do I spend my time wisely? Am I doing what actually is inspirational?

Answers….NO.NO..NO and NO!

Time to change all that…time to really think about those questions…time to think deeply. I don’t like to do’s a bit scary. What is inspirational? What are my dreams? Can I begin to spend my time more wisely ? Hmmmmmmmmm….thoughts to ponder today. I hope to get out in the sun today….that will motivate me to think about these questions of life.

Of course Socrates once said…A life without examination is not worth living…. Hmm….time to examine min!

Forget the weekend!

July 6, 2009

Ok….so I made some bad food choices over the weekend….no since dwelling on that! Today is Monday…. I will make healthierchoices this week.

Looks like rain here today…so will save my workout until this evening’s step class followed bya  body sculpting class.

mad at self

July 4, 2009

I ate too much last nite and feel miserable today! Why do we do that to ourselves?
