This really stuck with me today. It can’t express how I feel any better.  It also reminds me of what I need to do in my life. What I think about constantly, but don’t follow through with. That I need to just speak and not walk on eggshells. That I need to do more for myself and what makes me feel good.  

I want to thank, Rachael, a friend on Facebook. One of the very few friends that I have on Facebook, that I have never actually met in person. I adore your drive for life. For peace. For health. For education.  ♥


2012, or the Twilight Zone?

Happy 2012!!

My last Blog was on November 15th, yikes!  Crazy busy? Totally lazy? Who the hell knows!  What I do know is that I am here today, typing away, feeling good and making good choices.

It is New Years Day… holy crap!  2012 already! I am happy and mad all at the same time.  I am going to stay on a positive note though and write about what good things I have done for myself today…

I laid in bed until after 2 p.m.

I had Pho with my family for the first time together, ever!  It was so great!  We ordered the large bowl of Pho An Sen’s most popular and chowed it!  We even got a second bowl.  To my chagrin, I didn’t tell our Boys what they were eating until AFTER we had finished.  I just wanted them to taste it and if they loved it to eat it up.  They did!  Then I told them that they were eating Beef MeatBalls, Beef loin, Beef flank stake, Beef round steak, Tripe and Tendon.  They thought about it for a moment, then said, “When can we come back?” I love them to death!!

Ice Cream with the family after lunch/dinner.  My first ice cream scoop in over a couple of months. Yum!  I love mint chip ice cream.

Joined the #100ozChallenge on Twitter today.  My goal is to get though January and most likely just head on through to February as well.  I am goal challenged, so this is a good start for me.

I also joined Shrink Yo’Self in 2012 {new challenge} | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC. for the Shrink Yo’Self in 2012 and also the 52 Small Changes: One Year to a Happier, Healthier You – The Hood.  These two look fantastic as well.  Simple.  2 great challenges to get me going again and they look like they will work well in conjunction with each other.

I have been terrible about going to Bikram and miss it terribly.  I am going to try to get back on my schedule again by next Monday.  That is my exercise goal.  Going at least 2 times a week.  I need it badly.

As I enter into my 13th week of Weight Watchers I must tell you that I have lost 7.2 pounds in 2011 on the program.  That puts me at a total of 11.2 for 2011.  2012 I will be kicking it up a notch.  When it comes to this time next year I want most of the weight off.  I don’t want to feel like I haven’t accomplished something.  I should be able to do this.  Exercise, food and water.  How hard could that be.  Go Kathleen Go!

Well, here is to the New Year and great things to come!  🙂


WordPress A Post A Day/Week #37 ~ Could You Live Without The Internet?

Could You Live Without The Internet

I could absolutely live without the internet.  I did it before and I could do it again.  Not that I don’t love it, because I do.  I love it for the shopping and social networking.  I wouldn’t have the friends I do in my life mostly, because of the internet one way, or another.  🙂


WordPress Post A Day/Week #10 ~ One Thing You’ve Never Told Anyone and Explain Why

One Thing You’ve Never Told Anyone and Explain Why

The title of this post sat as a “draft” all day yesterday and today until now.  I have been mulling and mulling it over and over in my brain what I could write about on this topic.  Unfortunately, I still haven’t been able to come up with anything.  I have told everything that I have done to at least one person.  I really do think so.  I have played it over and over in my head.  I have done many, many fun and exciting things in my life and some not to fun, but there is someone out there that knows each and every one.  Yep!  End of story.  🙂


30 Days – Day 8

Day 8 — Your Favorite Internet Friend

I am going to go along with my friend, Christina, on this one to say that an “internet friend” is someone who you have only conversed with over the internet.

I met Rachael through another long time friend that I got back in touch with since I have been on Facebook.  I believe that they went to college together. Rachael is wonderful!  She as little boys, as I do.  She lives near the beach in Southern California.  She always posts the most wonderful articles, ideals, witty remarks.  I just find her so interesting and fun!  I don’t have many people on my Facebook that isn’t someone who is part of my family, or that I know personally.  Needless to say, she must be great!  I think that she is.  🙂
