Five Favorites

It’s been an interesting week around these parts.  Plumbing issues, construction, tough conversations… let’s just say I’m glad to see the end of it.  In addition, I have to make an overnight trip to New York this weekend for the unveiling of my grandmother’s headstone, and I’m not looking forward to the drive.  (If you’re not familiar, since Jews bury within 48 hours of death, there’s an unveiling ceremony later, usually the following year.  It’s now been two years since my grandma passed.)

I’m hoping I at least get some good food out of the trip, and luckily I have a dinner date planned with Laura and finally get to meet her!  Chris and Abbie are staying home, so I’m sad to be leaving Abbie overnight for the first time.  Chris has some plans for her though, so I know she’ll have a great time with her Daddy.  Since I’ve got so much going on, I thought I’d take a minute today and show you some of my posts you may have missed…a few of my favorites from the past month or so.

This post I wrote about two of my favorite people in the world… my college roommates.

These two women mean the world to me.  they not only taught me about friendship, but they let me learn to be myself – with no judgement.  They’re the girls I went to class and worked on projects with.  We screamed for our Hokies in Lane Stadium.  We went to countless frat parties together.  We drank cheap margaritas in our apartment before we headed downtown for the night, inevitably ending up at Joe’s Diner with me at 3am so we could have cheesy eggs.

This post I wrote about weight loss, and the fact that there really is no secret to it.

The thing about it is that it’s not a secret, not really. Its a frame of mind. If your head isn’t in it, you won’t succeed. You may do OK for a little while by going through the motions, but you won’t get far. You have to truly focus on it.

This honest post about where my mind was last week.

I just feel like we’re not getting anywhere lately.  We just seem to be going through the motions, trying to better ourselves and our situation and just not moving forward.  I’m getting tired of it – tired of feeling stuck in the same place.
