It’s been a while, but I have a new prize ready to go. I’ll be announcing it & opening up for entries soon.

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
~Marcus Aurelius (Brainy Quotes)
Because anyone who says differently is an asshole & everybody knows asshole opinions don’t matter.
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
Maria Robinson (Think Exist)
It’s been a while! There has been a lot going on in my life since I last posted here, nearly a year ago. I finally approved comments & replied to the simpler questions. I need more focus to deal with the emotionally heavy comments.
For those playing along at home, here is a quick bullet list of the haps:
I suppose that’s all for now. I hope everyone out there who is still struggling can take some solace in knowing it can get better if you hang in there. It’s not easy, & I’ve been very fortunate to have the ability to take time out of the work force to be able to focus on my recovery. I hope to be able to return to full-time work in the near future, but for now I have to be able to handle a part-time job.
My philosophy is: If you can’t have fun, there’s no sense in doing it.
~Paul Walker (Brainy Quotes)
Reading a comment thread in the Fit Fatties Facebook group, I found a mention of Run An Empire. It’s a running game app (app game? story app? “strategy running game”), similar to Zombies, Run!. The difference being, from what I can see — it’s still in closed beta, instead of earning items to build up your virtual zombie compound, you actually capture & defend the real world space you run through.
When you aim for perfection, you discover it’s a moving target.

I wrote a couple of years ago about things I was letting fear hold me back from. So far, I’ve had a job, started dating & had a boyfriend — even if he turned out to be shitty, moved to a larger city, I’ve become more social & made a lot of new friends, & I’ve started checking out the comedy scene here & working on a set. Now, I have my own apartment! 😀
Like a lot of big life changes, even positive ones, it can be stressful. I’m really happy with my decision, but it is a major step, especially financially. I am working with vocational rehab though to go back to work; a long-term job, not something seasonal.
This article showed up on my personal Facebook page, & I thought it was pretty great. So, of course I had to share it with you guys! It’s message is certainly one I share & promote.
When you think about your best friends, do you ever think “If she was only a size 2, I’d enjoy hanging out with her so much more”? Of course not. That’s ridiculous.
So then why do we think that way about ourselves?
Working toward becoming a healthy person is a good and worthy goal, something I should be proud of.
Working toward becoming a size 6 is not.
It’s just not. It is not good or worthy. It has nothing to do with being a healthier me or a better me or feeling more beautiful.

Catching up on some things at the library. I am getting closer to the ‘net at home; probably in the next couple of weeks. Yay! I got behind on my 31 Miles to Halloween challenge, but have been making the push this week to catch up my miles. I should just squeak by. Finished C25K w1d2 with J. yesterday, & we will finish the week up tomorrow. Yay again! The prize for October was to be spearmint teas & related goodies, based on my previous article about tea for PCOS. I have it together, but decided to wait to until I can be more active here before posting it.
So, on to the meat here. A couple of friends posted this on fb & I got it in the EF newsletter today, so I figured why not. It’s a fairly brief article, as most of their stuff is, & does a good job of summing the issue up.
Alas I am still without internet at the new place, but I’m trying to get the owner motivated in that direction. Sadly, he’s old & doesn’t care much for technology.
Did C25K wk 2, but a friend wants to start now so I’m starting over. I have been taking my housemate’s dog with me.
Hope you are all doing wonderful & planning on having a happy Halloween.
