Tumbling now...

First off I’m so sorry to have been away so long and so neglectful. What a sad little blogger I am. But this little spot was never far from my heart and now late to the party I’ve decided to go down the rabbit hole and make it anew as a tumbling tumblr blog.
So please now join me at the NEW Becoming Tru Me.




Down the hole I go. Whee!!!

Is This The New 46?

Wow. Check out 46 year old, hot as all get out, head full of grey hair, Kristen McMenamy as she graces the cover of Vogue Italia’s swimwear supplement.



Head on over and see the rest of the pics (warning some a bit racy) and tell me what you think of a women of practically a "certain age" in such a spread. Sexy yay or nay?

I’m saying, oh yay!

Not My Daddy

I'm loving this video of Kelly Price's new single Not My Daddy. Says a lot about longstanding relationships. Gotta keep them watered.
And 2 fun facts: it's directed my the talented Regina King and the girl playing the young Kelly is her beautiful daughter. So cute.











Enjoy.

Working it Out

Anyway I can.



Of course there aren't near as many costume changes during my workout but wouldn't it be nice?

To Do

I’m so sorry to have been MIA for so long but all I can do is say it’s just been my life this past month with college visits for my twins and trying to come to some decision in that department. We have finally made decisions (though with a wait list one is still teetering) and now we are in the hair raising financial stages. Seriously my hair is raised.

I don’t think I’ve slept a full night in months. But truly all the worry is doing nothing for my health or life so it’s time to get back to MY to-do list for me and that means putting myself at the top of that list (all else will come).

Easter (and all that food) is done. It’s time to get back on track. And move forward. Hopefully sleep will follow.

Escape

Right now I can use a little escape. I'd love to spend a few days in this Kate fantasy life with Duran Duran being my walking soundtrack.







Sadly though I have to settle for the lipstick instead of Paris. Ahh well.

Carrying On

My kids were back to school one day (Monday) and then today was another snow day (they called it weather related due to the intense lack of snow). I tell you it’s like one big long weekend around here and it has me shaking my head. All this is sending my diet into a tailspin.
And can I ask why are weekends with the family such a challenge? It’s something about kids, the hubby, the dog and free flowing organized chaos that brings on the urge to eat. Tell me I’m not alone. Please. I’ve done well so far this year so I’m not going to beat up on myself too bad. Still I’ve had no sugar in my coffee, and I’m still exercising just about every day though only 1 day on the weekend instead of 2. Hey, I’m going in the right direction. Yes?

But sadly, I have to say the migraines have been coming fast and furious the past few weeks and have been insidiously slowing me down which is a bummer. I seem to be on a pattern of waking up with them again and my neurologist wants to have me go cold turkey for a few weeks off medication to see if I’m not having rebound headaches. The thought of daily nausea and excruciating pain is enough to send me into a tailspin. She said I need to find a time when there is not much stress in order to do it. She said that should be easy since my kids are teens and could fend for themselves. You can imagine how I looked at her right?

On top of this all my treadmill walking has my foot arthritis flaring but I’m working through. I refuse to let it stop my weight loss. I’ve gone down 8 pounds so far this month according to friend it’s all in my face. Of course that is so not there I wanted it can we work our way south please?

Ahh well, carrying on.







How you doin?

The Quest Continues

So I'm still on my quest. I've added daily exercise in my basement gym and the only one laughing is my dog Jack but by his expressions I think it's on the inside only. Hey at least I'm on the move.

So um, Yeah, Not so Tasty

So in yet another attempt to break my sugar addiction, today I had my usual big old cup of coffee without any sugar or artificial sweetener at all. It was just coffee with milk. Ugh.

Not my usual light and sweet delicious candy treat. Let me say it was a tough one to slog down. Hours later and I’m still tasting it and not in a good way. But the caffeine was sorely needed so I had that and well, it’s not nothin’.


Wish me luck in this painful endeavor. Woo saaa…. Waaa!!!

Curb My Enthusiasm

So it's January, diet time around the world. I guess I really should recommit to my diet and exercise program.

I sound really enthused huh?


The holidays have been a huge derailment and I've been stuck in park. But it's time to get in gear and back on the road to better health. My arthritis has been flaring up and the headaches coming at a steady enough pace to be driving me to distraction. That said good heath is something to seriously strive for. Of course if there was a nice and easy way to banish the excess weight I'd be happy to check a box.


Please send some good health vibes my way and I'll send some yours. Let's fight the good fight together.



Love You, Love Me,

Chanel Dreams



So yesterday instead of using food as a calming tool. I went to dreaming about Chanel (and thinner thighs). Why is it I don't have this bag yet?
