Combo Plate Coming!

I have a tough time juggling the different sites I have and it seems to take me such a long time! Post here, post there, twitter, instagram, etc. I’m exhausted! I have another blog called, “Swingin’ Dolly” here on wordpress that is about my event planning and event crafts business I do from home.

Last night when I was posting here, I was thinking, “I haven’t spent any time on my Swingin’ Dolly – and that’s a complete atrocity!”

So, I am making some changes. I have a website now for Swingin’ Dolly’s event stuff at I will be posting to the website the specific events/ crafts stuff so I can do more of the domestic side on WordPress, help to elevate some of the extra posting time and help to keep both updated more regularly.

I will also be reposting links to the posts from Move Over Stepford to Swingin’ Dolly so that nothing is missed; I’ll be adding to a couple of the pages and HOPEFULLY by Monday, 7/11, I will have everything converted and done. 🙂

Once the conversion is complete, I will only be posting to Swingin’ Dolly to help streamline how long it takes me to post! LOL #NotLazy #MaybeALittle

I hope that those of you who have enjoyed this blog will come on over to the new home of the blog at Swingin’ Dolly. It’s the same blog, just a new home. 😉

Take care everybody and be kind.

Organization is Our Friend

Being pissy missy, I got in an extra yoga session, had dinner (chicken noodle soup) and just soaked in negativity for a while. Then I thought about it for a moment. How can I make this anger-session positive (remember, I’m still trying to wrap my brain around The Secret). I thought I would create a little packet that I can take with me as a way to keep me motivated and on track. How did I do that, you ask? Two words: Index Cards. Continue reading

Slave to my Emotions…

So, this week I am undertaking this pretty huge change in my life this week. Though I haven’t been perfect (FAR from it), I have tried and grown (in little ways) closer to my goals. AND BONUS! I have come one pound closer to where I want to be. BOOM BABY! Trying to keep a check on my emotional eating, I really, really do my best to understand the triggers.  Continue reading

That’s what happens when you don’t plan

SOOOO I had been doing well the last couple days, right? Got home late late last night and I still had to work (I work from home as a transcriber) so I don’t go to bed until 2 am.I thought, “I already know my list, I haven’t picked a new book just yet. I’m good to skip my blog tonight.” Wrong.

So wrong. Continue reading

Chptr 3: buh-bye


So chapter 3 is about nutrition. It’s talks about quantity vs quality, 7 vital nutrients that your body really needs, and the scientific data to support that conclusion. It was very informative! The chapter itself is thorough and well presented. I hope that I don’t dumb it down for you – I don’t mean to. I think this is where I get lost on some of the programs — because I think I’ve tried them all.  Continue reading

Chptr 2- Exercise Rx. I don’t wanna…

The first chapter of “Transformation” was a heartfelt search into what and why I wanted to get into shape. I laughed; I cried. And at the end – after the most humiliating pictures I think I have ever made very public – I feel I came out a better person.

Chapter Two – not quite as riveting.  Continue reading

Chapter 1, Part 2

Yesterday, I the starting point for my journey in the “Transformation” book. Tonight: What my vision of my goals are at the end of this 18-week program.

Question 1: “Looking forward 18 weeks from now, three changes I will have made that show I’m more aligned with what’simportant to me at a ‘heart and soul’ level are:” Continue reading
