Sunday, July 14


Today's post is for Stream of Consciousness Sunday over at Jana's Thinking Place. Join us if you will!

Today is the day. A new week. Begin anew. Reset my brain.

The events of this week have kept me in a state of anger, and I hate being that way. Life isn't just so I have to sit back and watch someone do to me exactly what they accused me of doing.

But from today on it's like it never happened. I am going to forget it and realize there just isn't fairness or justice, particularly when you are dealing with irrational people. The only satisfaction I have is to know that this person will still be angry and stewing over it and I will have moved on. Starting now.

I'm feeling the effects of the weight gain I've had over the past 6 months. 25 pounds. I need to lose about 80, but at least if I could get where I was last summer I know the foot pain, hip pain and back pain will go away, as will the body issues I've been suffering of late because every item of clothing is too small.

I don't need to be skinny, skinny is overrated and I like my full figure. But I do have a very generous number in mind where I'd like to be and I know I can make it. But it's not going to happen with diet and exercise, that's been proven to me. There's more than that going on in this body and the first step is to figure that out, then move on from there.


  1. Sometimes it's hard to get that good inertia going whether it be weight loss, a de-cluttered house or any major life improvement. But we are worth it and just having to start make positive steps in the right direction. Whatever the undertaking, we'll see positive results. Good luck. And good vibes your way.

  2. You can do it! I feel sure you'll get to the bottom of it and get started on that path. Much love to you!

  3. Congratulations for putting it out there! It seems to be going around on this particular #SOCSunday. You are an inspiration - I look forward to following you as you achieve this goal!

  4. It drives people crazy when you don't rise to their bait. A smile is very powerful.
