the day started out good!

This morning I woke up and my daughter had left me an email with this link telling me that the song reminded her of me. Well, it is Whitney Houston's performance from last night's AMA awards. Her perform ace was stunning and the fact that daughter thought that it reminded her of me made me cry like a baby. Yes, I am a boob.

I have had a hellish day at work. I am so glad that I learned in the Four Agreement book that I shouldn't take anything personally. Cause boy oh boy i could have run with a butt load of resentments today. Instead, I can almost laugh at the situation. Almost. I am so glad that I have the ability to recognize when I am a being a A-Hole....most of the time anyway. I am grateful that I am not too proud to say when I am wrong or when I make a mistake. IT makes my life much less stressful. Being right (or even BELIEVING that you are right) all the time is exhausting....just ask Rush Limbaugh ... lol, couldn't resist.

Life is good. I am doing the best I can. It's not perfect, but it is my personal best. I did better over the weekend, but still over did it. Not sure I will weigh in this week, or just wait till after Thanksgiving. Who am I kidding....I will weigh. I have drank a bunch more water this past week, my food wasn't as bad either, but i am scared to get on after last week's 6 lb gain. I did the math wrong from last week. Just noticed it. I gained 6 not 5 lbs. SHIT!~

Keep the mood and the food grateful for all things! ALL THINGS~


  1. Dana,
    I just want to thank you for you supportive comments on my blog over the weekend. It meant a great deal to me.

    You have just reminded me I bought the Four Agreements, but never read it. Will find it and read this week. Sounds like I may learn something from reading it. Just off to look at the video...

  2. Couldn't access the video, some message on about copywrite:0(

    I bet it was brill



  3. I need to re-read The Four Agreements. I need to just get over myself ! ha

    Thank you for your insightful comments on my blog. I respect your opinions and experience. Have a wonderful Holiday if I don't get back by here between now and then.

  4. I've never heard of the Four Agreements. I might need to check it out.

  5. Sorry work was so bad today...I've also never heard of the Four Agreements, but if it can help in situations like that, then I need to read it!

    So sweet of your daughter to send you that link! And I'm verklempt because you are!

  6. hang in there Dana. This is the toughest week in the toughest stretch of the year of course. And you are doing pretty good, even afgter that 6 spot. All anyone can do after backsliding is start right back up the hill. You have already begin that.

  7. Sorry to hear you had a rough day at work but what a nice moment from your daughter. Hopefully things are going to get better. Thanks for reminding me life is good *hugs*. Hopefully the scale will be kind to you this week.

  8. What is the Four Agreements? I enjoy your blog since I'm venturing out on my own journey of getting back in shape.

  9. Im so with you in the notion that life IS GOOD when we are doing our personal best.
    it has taken me way too long to realize that just because someone else's best looks "better" to me some days that mine is still GOOD ENOUGH!!

  10. you are not a boob you are babe!

    your best is all you can ask for :) yay. do it.

    life is good. :) 'cause it could be so much frickin' worse couldn't it? x x <3
