Busy Busy…

Hey – just wanted to let the blog-o-sphere know that I’m still here, just have a lot of things going on. I started school, I’m getting settled into my new position at work, and I tried out for a TV show (you guessed it – The Biggest Loser). For the last couple of days, my kids have been sick, and now I am. I missed a day and a half of work because if it, so now I’m behind at work. The TV Show is a long long LONG shoot, but if I were to make the show, I would have to work it out with my job and finish this semester’s classes in the next month instead of having the next four months, so… I’m behind on my school work as well.

I’m sure I will take time soon to blog about the wonderful people I met while waiting almost eight hours in line last Saturday for the audition. And I hope to blog about my new school life soon as well. In the mean time – click around in the tag cloud and checkout some of my old posts that you never got around to reading!!!

New Year’s Resolutions – 2008

Well, that’s the bad thing about having a public blog. You may be able to run away from last year’s resolutions. You may be able to escape the fact that you haven’t made one ounce of progress in those lofty goals you set last year. But I cannot…

It’s here again – The new year. I read my post from last year – it was in my not so humble opinion, well written, well said, and well ignored. Every year, no matter how hard I try to NOT create ‘new year’s resolutions’, I find myself wanting to start anew and lose weight, reduce debt, go back to school, read more, etc, etc, etc. Last year, I started talking about setting goals instead of making resolutions (not in my blog entry, but among my family). Maybe this year, I will create a constitution for myself and my family. I don’t know how to make this time any different than before, but as with every preceding effort, I want to believe this time will be different…. My prayer from last year still holds true today:

What must I do to be saved from ‘eating too much’? What must I do to be saved from ‘credit card debt’? What must I do to be saved from ‘realism’? What must I do to be saved from ‘my same old ways’? What will make this different from last year, last week, last night? Am I the only one asking these questions?

I’m still asking those questions. I still don’t have the answers.

My Weight Loss myThoughts

Back in The Saddle Again…

Thank you for flooding my email box with concern about my lack of posting regarding weightloss – it was touching that you noticed my weekly update turned into monthly (er… not even) updates.  I was overwhelmed that you guys would not let me quit!… (cricket, cricket, cricket…)
