Plaster that smile on...

and fake it till you make it. That's what the motto for today is. I have started my day off right. Prayer and meditation. Both a long walk and rode the bike to work. Waved as usual. Brighten me up some. I get so stuck in SELF pity some times. Today it's my intention to do things that get me out of self.

I weighed in last night and the official scale said I had gain 2.5 lbs. Not surprising, but "ouch" none the less. Going to get back into the swing of things. SELF sabotage is not going to lie to me today....well it might lie, but I'm not believing it...lol. I know what to do, just need to follow thru.


I want to thank everyone for the kind comments from yesterday. I need to GET OVER MYSELF already. Thanks Roxie, I knew what you ment and appreciated the kick in the pants. Isn't it funny how we are so different, yet so alike....all of us! Sounded like a few people were having a case of the Mondays. I am sure that the TR overdose influences how I am feeling as well....carb overload indeed....thanks Anne


I am feeling better already. Something about the weekends lately have been messing me up. I am as successful or miserable or lonely as I choose to be. Go figure. Guess I will be grateful that I am working this week. Something about having a place to go in the morning is a good thing for me. The picture was taken yesterday. Saw it on my bike ride yesterday...laughed my ass off. Just goes to show...there is a job for everyone.

Keep the mood and the food real....fake it till you make it!

  2. What's that saying - something about being alone with yourself in your head is a very dangerous place? That happens to me a lot - to the point of having imaginary arguments with people! Yes, I am a full-fledged member of the crazy club, lol!

    Hope you have a totally awesome day, Dana - sounds like you started it in the right direction!

  5. One of my mom's favorite phrases is "Don't get paralysis from analysis". You can do it or you wouldn't have come this far.

    Sometimes you have to keep chugging along with a positive attitude so that your body can catch up to your mental state.

    As for the pooper scoopers....I can't begin to imagine how they go about soliciting clients....funny.

  6. There's something about the changing seasons that always messes with my head and mood but it is short-lived. Hope it's the same with you. Feel better.

  9. Glad you are doing better, Dana. No one deserves it more. I've got my smile stapled on today, too. No, actually mine is pretty genuine and I hope you are having some positives today as well.

  11. Great attitude. It's weird how we know what we gotta do to lose weight, but sometimes, we just get in our own way. Hang in there.

    Glad you're working and that sign is too funny.

    Take care

  12. I know that sometimes at work when I'm feeling crabby or not very friendly, if I go WAY overboard and am REALLY nice to a few co-workers, it sets the tone for the rest of the day. Then it's not so hard to be nice and pleasant. So, fake it till you make it definitely works.

    Keep up the positive attitude! You're doing great!
