  1. 2009 Resolutions

    by , 01-01-2009 at 11:14 AM
    1. To remember, every day, to respect my body and my mind, my home, and the planet I live on;
    2. To recycle, reuse, and reduce; to compost; to give back to the earth in a positive way;
    3. To remember that each day lived is a day lost, and to make the most of the time I have.

  2. December 30th and December 31st

    We stayed on plan these two days.

    Tuesday we had Jambalaya, corn and Texas Toast for dinner. We went and worked out at the Y, we tried a new 30 minute circuit work out. There are around 30 stations. You do each station for 1 minute. It alternates between a strength stations and cardio. It was okay, I sure felt the strength stations. (Arms, legs, etc).

  4. Goodbye and farewell to 2008

    by , 01-01-2009 at 03:27 AM
    In about half an hour, 2008 will be gone forever. It saddens me to see it go, as it marks another part of my life that is lost to me. But I face its leaving with an equal amount of hope, as well. With a new year comes new possibilities, and new opportunities. I can only tremble in anticipation, and wait to see what 2009 lays at my doorstep.

  5. A step in the right direction.

    Today I made a little luxury purchase. I purchased fabric to make a carry all bag for myself. I got some beautiful fabric, at 50% off. So $18. Very nice indeed.

    I tucked the receipt into my calendar with the check register and marked it when i get home. I know exactly what's in the account. I have $700 to last until payday( $200 is a payment to make, and $500 to the snowball. Then I start fresh with the new payday.

    New Years Eve. I'm already in my PJ's. ...
