WW at work

Yesterday was the big day!!! I finally pulled it off!!

For the last month or so I've been reaching out to the company I work for as well as the surrounding companies to start a Weight Watchers at Work program. For those of you that have done this or helped organize one, you will know that you have to have at least 20 participants before a leader will be assigned to your location. We luckily had 22 with 18 showing up on Monday and two more to come next week.

Our meeting went well, everyone was really excited and most had already participated in this program before. We have signed up for a 10 week commitment and we are all off to a great start.

We each have a number of points that we are allowed to eat in a day, we aren't eliminating any food we are just watching the quantity and point value. We have a point finder that we can keep with us to check everything that we are putting in our mouths as well as a list of foods and an average of point count for a quick reference.

So far so good. I just finished lunch and I feel full. I had a pork loin marinated in soy/ginger sauce and a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese with tomatoes. It was delightful! It's very similar to what I had last night but a little different.

Anyway, this is hopefully going to help kick-start my weight loss issue and help move the process along a little. This 1st week is all focused on eating right and staying with your points. Next week we are working in exercise and other things to help the weight drop.

Stay tuned for another WW at Work update...

Wow, good for you! Seriously! Lots of people talk about being healthier or exercising more. You're not only doing something about it, but you're also motivating others. Brav-o! :)

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
