I want to be...

the kind of person who:

  • eats lots of fresh raw fruit and vegetables

  • takes long walks in the crisp fall air and gets to feel leaves crunching beneath her feet

  • takes the time to do a stretching routine every day at her desk (I found a great one in Bob Anderson's book Stretching for people who sit at the computer all day.)

  • uses yoga for stress relief instead of food

  • donates blood - today's the day (my employer has a blood drive every 8 weeks)

  • is friendly and outgoing (I'm shy)

  • isn't afraid to try new healthy foods (I haven't gotten into whole grains but I'd like to)

Next week will be September, gosh where has August gone. I'll be glad for the cooler weather. I love fall. I think it's one of my favorite times of year.

More later...


I was able to donate packed red blood cells today. My hemoglobin was 14.3. YES! Now it will be 16 weeks before I can donate again.


  1. Kudos to you for donating blood!

    I relate to this list a lot, especially the friendly/outgoing one. I tend to overanalyze and care too much about what other people think. This causes me to just not say anything at all rather than say something or do something embarrassing.

    And thanks for letting me know about Heather’s zucchini recipe. Looks fantastic :)

  2. I love this. I want to be those things too :)

    Way to go for donating blood!

  3. Great list!

    I just saw the "stuff you are hooked on" on your sidebar - love them all! :)

    Yoga is such a better stress reliefer than food - now I'll just always have to remember this... :)
