We are going to know a new freedom from dread and avoidance and escape and experience a new lightness of tasks, proposed

Recycler CI 8:55pm EST

Hi Pro Buddies!

This morning at the gym I did my cardio, stretching, and ab exercises. Later, I spilled make-up on my dress; fortunately I had another outfit that I could wear. My dress is stained, but I have washed it tonight, and will try to fix it this weekend.

At work this morning I kept going on my Deadline and Most Urgent tasks. At lunch I went to a meeting offsite. In the afternoon, I progressed on my assignment list as I could. In the morning I hope the office will be quiet so I can knock off more stuff from my assignment list.

After work I came by the condo & started a load of clothes to wash, before meeting with a group to have dinner. After class tonight, I wrote an email to a friend, and am now doing my CI. I hope to go to sleep soon.

Have a great night, everyone! :)



Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)

Today has been a very meeting-heavy day, blah.

So I'll try to keep my list of tasks for today reasonable. I'll try to get at least half of the following done (whatever I want)

I want to
1)Look into Sertoli cell culture and sorting (working on this now)
4)Talk to TE about biosensor project
5)Deacon notes, notes from retreat
7)Get GSEA and sparse LDA working (will work on this soon)
8)Scales website


OK, going to look into Sertoli cell culture now, then go to coffee w/ labmates, then take care of orders, mice, and talking to TE, then work on GSEA and sparse LDA. Heading to the chatbox. 

Potential energy 145


Today's list:

Z:  gm play          rd. bk.                homework                violin practice   prep tom. lunch

Home/me:   100 sit ups                clean 45 min               rd. bk

Work:  tell boss to take those stinken reports and.... no, just kidding- do 1 report tonight

Think positive thoughts for the rest of the daySmile

Show up, pay attention (done) speak truth, let go of outcome (trying)

I am afraid to be happy because I am afraid I will jinx it. I wrote my report, will fax summary and take in hard copy tommorrow. I should be happy that PA seems to be helping, but I feel like , something must be wrong. so I really have to watch out for self sabatoge. Before I turned to food, etc. there was a time I did not have as much an issue with procratination, but it was so long ago. Now I feel like Joyce Meyers, she said "I don't feel right unless I feel wrong". I suppose I felt that way with the food, and one day at a time I have a daily reprive, so why do I limit my HP? If he could help me with food, why not PA? I guess because I think I should be able to do it alone?

oh well, grateful for now, thanks for being here, now Walk, turn son over to my HP.

8's ci 8:57am

sup dudes, kz 8 got his 30 days sober yesterday.  man i got some energy and clarity of thought.  still got depression but some self respect has helped and some faith that triple gem dharma stuff will be there in the future and we'll be okay.


i got to clean the old desk - and look for some papers.


man i made some serious progress in my work today.  wow.

  •  scan what i can
  • finish that case
  • file both



congrats on the chips you hold

Hi 8!

Congratulations on the chips you hold! Keep coming back!



Thank you, gals & guys, for being here! :)

OCz one more step!

I read today's reply from Radiance to the "Promises of Recovery" about writing in present, in affirmative and in first person... here's my proposal for today opening message from Clement:

"Today I will know a new freedom from dread and avoidance and escape and I will experience a new lightness of tasks"

I thank God for putting me into this path and surround me with you, I feel his working and loving hand in this pages!

Today I will review my whole list of pendings. I will break them down by topics and I will share the list with my manager after asking for his help yesterday to define priorities together.

I'll come back with the list in a while after I have grouped it all (right now it's in a paper and with no particular order)

living one step at a time!


I love to read recovery gifts. I am happy for you. Thanks for sharing. Vic

    Good morning all.  Smile  I wanted to share this passage from the big book that is a great vision for our recovery.  Starting on page 87 last paragraph  "As we go through the day we pause, when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or action.....We procrastinators are undiciplined.  So we let God discipline....There is action and more action.  Faith without works is dead."  This is the share from T-Angel on our morning call.

    • email done

    re: discipline

    > We procrastinators are undisciplined. So we let God discipline

    man, that's right where i live ;)
