my passions

i am a passionate person
i have strong beliefs
and i have even
stronger desires

i share without reservation
i enjoy every day I have

i have many passions

image, body

Wednesday, July 25th 2007

yesterday, there were several blogs and posts about body image; about how pictures and mirrors donít reflect what we expect to see as quickly as we want to see it. after all the work we are doing, we want to see hard evidence of the progress in our reflections and we donít, at least not yet. well this got me thinking about expectations and managing them. now, i am very proud of everything i am doing and all my hard work to get healthy and thinner. but that doesnít mean i am going to see the bod...

and sometimes

never forget
her kind heart

a lesson well learned, i hope

Sunday, July 22nd 2007

i was alone
my shoulder hurt
my ankle hurt
i panicked
thinking of all i had to do
and so i ate

it had been a long day

and so i ate

i failed
i failed myself

i thought
i would work-out
at some point
but i didn't
my body ached
and i had other
