January 5th Resolutions take Form
Tuesday, January 05, 2010      1 comments

I refuse to be one of those that makes a resolution and then doesn't stick to it. Therefore I usually don't make resolutions. This year I got sucked into a planning mode and laid out not only a few resolutions but the plan as well. Should w... Read more

2010 has to be the year. Every month that passes I cheat and moan and groan at my self indulgence and inability to change. It has to happen. I feel old having this weight on, I can't do stuff I want to do. I REALLY wanted the self confidence... Read more

I don't wanna write this blog! I don't wanna start over! I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna. I hope I have created the picture of an impish, spoiled, little child doing the "I don't wanna" routine. That's me. I feel like I don't wan... Read more

Frustration and eating
Saturday, September 26, 2009      4 comments

State Tax!
Wednesday, September 02, 2009      5 comments

Wow, Illinois just placed a HUGE tax on all the "bad" stuff. Soda pop, teas, candy, and alcoholic beverages. Guess that is just another reason to give the stuff up. I have to admit I don't really do candy much, but love my beer and wine. I ... Read more

After many months of stressing over the Oncology Nursing certification exam, I passed. It's a big deal in and of itself (at least in my mind). But the really great thing is that as a stress eater, I might have packed on an extra 20 lbs or so, ... Read more
