What Does it Take?

  What does it take to succeed? I would have to say, “I have no idea!” What does it take to bolster your self-will (self-discipline)? Well, if I have thought of it, I have tried it, and so far, not working so well. What does it take to change the way you act/react so that…

Knowing and Being Known

I have been thinking a lot lately about this idea of knowing God and being known by God. It probably stems from a serious self-conversation on the same subject, only without the involvement of God. I have this thing rolling in my head that is so unfamiliar to me; and kind of unwelcome at the…

Just Write…

A few posts ago, I told you that I had enrolled in a writing course. Because of that new job and because the lessons are requiring a lot of thought and prayer, I have not covered much ground yet, but that is not to say I have not learned a lot. I have promised to…

36. Rawsome Summer 2019

This past week, I was training for a new job. And still responsible for the old one as well. What that looked like in day-to-day life was working more than 8 hours each day. And, boy, was I grateful for the Thursday holiday. And while it was a day off of work, it was a…

30. Rawsome Summer 2019

The end of June is here. It has been an entire month of raw, and if I had to put a percentage out there for the month, I would say that taking bad days, perfect days and everything in between, rolling it all up…it would spit out a determination of about 85% raw for the…

27. Rawsome Summer 2019

It is Day “Something” on the restart of  my Rawsome Summer. I must admit to a great measure of relief once the decision was made to just begin again. And honestly, I will probably give up the counting. As I have said before, my intention is to continue on with no end in mind, but…

17. Rawsome Summer 2019

It’s been an entire day of being in my pajamas.  I can honestly say I am ending the day feeling no better than when I started it.  But that will have to be OK. I took a sick day from work, and when that day is a Monday, I know that I put others in…

11. Rawsome Summer 2019

I had a moment of derailment last night, and today I am rejoicing that it was simply a moment!  I made Little Lovely a refried bean quesadilla.  AND I took 2 bites of it.  It did taste super good, but I knew it was NOT MY FOOD. AND, I had an oreo. Sigh.  But there…

10. Rawsome Summer 2019

Yesterday I determined that it was indeed time to weigh in on the scale. I had a start weight that I attained on June 1, early in the morning on the first day of the challenge. That initial weight was 280. My highest weight ever was 315, and honestly it has been all over between…

9. Rawsome Summer 2019

Today is Sunday so it is a day that tends to be different from the rest for me.  I make every effort not to work, but sometimes it is hard. Today all my coworkers put in time, but I chose to go in very early in the morning instead to do what needs done before…
