First a few things about me:
I'm overweight to the point of being obese.
I've ridden the diet rollercoaster and I hate it.
I have medical problems that truly mean that if I don't do something about my weight, I'm going to die before my time.
I'm ready to make a change NOW
With all that said, I think I'm ready to go back to an old friend: Vegetarianism. I feel good when I don't eat meat, but it's hard living with two Y chromosomes who won't eat vegetables. But you know, I think I'm ready to face this challenge head on.
This is my first blog entry here at BlogHer, and I am so excited! It's probably best to introduce myself and explain what I do.
I am Sandi - a.k.a. the HomeBadger. My company is HomeBadger Creations, Inc (www.homebadger.com). I have a home-based business in South Jersey and I sell handmade apparel wraps, shawls, scarves and yoga blankets for people of all ages, from almost any fabric requested.
First post here, and it's a gift.
Our group, the TwitterQueens, is having a Social Media Boot Camp and networking event on June 27.

"Years go by, will I still be waiting, for somebody else to understand?/Years go by, if I'm stripped of my beauty, and the orange clouds raining in my head/Years go by, will I choke on my tears till finally there is nothing left?/One more casualty, you know we're too easy, easy, easy"~Tori Amos
With the explosion in popularity of microblogging tools like Twitter, presenters are now faced with the possibility, or even likelihood, that some members of their audience will be tweeting (posting on Twitter) during the presentation. Initially, that idea is off-putting to many presenters.
No, not hot flashes, though I mean those, too. Flashes. All sorts.
Leaving space not only for fatigue but for increased liminal
space, the space in which ideas blossom and messages slide right in
like a lover surprising you by sliding into the airplane seat next to
you at the last minute.
Work hard, play hard. That has always been my motto. Somewhere in
that equation I need to figure out how to rest hard too. As my husband
likes to point out, I tend to wear myself out so that I get so sick
every 4-6 months to the point that I cannot get out of bed.
Only a couple of weeks ago this happened. A normal person would
realize that a little less work, a little more R&R, and some more
sleep after being sick would help me to stay healthy. Not me. Even in
my early 40’s I still think I’m invincible.
