Wednesday Babble

We'll make it...together.

Your arches are dropping. We call this ‘Runners Foot’” D.O. to Ronnie

Chanel said ‘No!‘” Ronnie sadly to herself.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the horrible tragedy today in Sacramento, California

Someone once asked me why I call certain columns “Babble” and I told them because so much has happened in that one day, that when I throw it all together, it reads like Babble. Honestly, I’ve had a great day, and the greatest blessing was talking with my best friend for 45 min on the phone. Not to digress, but I do miss them both…My Publicist and 5th Degree mentor. Teasing my 5th Degree Mentor that I had found an expert in The Discipline whom was willing to train me, he responded, “Well you must not have talked for very long” and he’s right…I didn’t…I’m not stupid, but he can suck it…by this time next year, Ronnie will be a trained assassin. Wednesday Babble...it really has been a good day, but not for everyone.

A man shot through his Ramada hotel room door today, wounding two CHP officers and killing a Deputy off his balcony. This occurred in Sacramento, California, a city just outside my residence in Granite Bay. When asked by the reporter, “Does this happen a lot” the spokesperson for the Sacramento Sherri’s responded, “The shooting of Officers? No, I don’t think so“. It was then that I realized if she could ask a stupid question like that, then I could easily be employed as a local news reporter, so that’s a good thing, but seriously, our thoughts and prayers do go out to the families affected by today’s events. These men and women put their lives on the line for us everyday….some don’t get to come home. I am truly sorry for their loss.

I’ll be creating a new category on VeronicaPhilips.com called “fashion and design” (it’s a working title). The main purpose is to  recommend, or slaughter them products that don’t meet my standards, and yes, I’ll get paid for it. If you haven’t already heard, I’ve been approved to be an affiliate of Coach and Dooney & Bourke, working on Gucci, and Chanel said NO. Coach and Dooney reviewed my site, liked what they saw, and approved me…so when you see a post recommending a product, with a link attached, feel free to scroll on by, or since it’s almost Christmas, (4 months ya’ll) feel free to follow the links on my page. It’s like the kid’s fundraisers….I bought your stuff, so you can look at mine, but honestly, I’m honored that after almost 5 years, my page is finally doing well….WTG Ronnie!

Finally, it’s hard out here for a bitch. I’m not insecure, but there is a certain way of life out here, a style that will take some getting used to. Making friends is hard for a child, but harder for an adult. Especially, when you set off on the wrong foot with your neighbor’s dog (whose a total asshole) and your husband, not you (his luck), is the one who has to deal with him. My neighbor threatened to call the police on our dogs for barking; which really…that’s what dogs do…BARK, especially when another dog is teasing them…..A quick review of the laws out here and we discovered that it is indeed against the law out here to have your dogs bark, and since I’m already begging for my Nursing license, I’d better shape up, and play ball. I suppose calling the guy a prick is not the way to start a life-long, personal relationship. Guess he won’t buying a Coach from me anytime soon…..

Wednesday Babble. The life and times of Ronnie, Lifestyle Blogger. I am attending Cardio Kickboxing class tomorrow, and to be the student, instead of the teacher could be cool. I have to hold off on running until I’m fitted for inserts that will help my “Runner’s Foot” but on the bright side….I’ve lost 10lbs, so that’s a good day. I need a tummy tuck and a boob job, so I’ll be pushing that Affiliate program pretty hard. The Labor Day Parade is Monday in Danville, and for the first time in years, I won’t be REPPING as their “Princess”, and that one hurts. I know there will be other parades, and other chances to wear the crown…and maybe that’s the Affirmation here. As long as you live, as long as you keep trying, as long as you follow your heart, mind, body and soul, there will always be other chances to Wear…The Crown; which as a digression, would have been a better title. I look forward to doing that again one day…maybe even here…in California. After all, there’s plenty of divaness to go around, and if you can make it in Danville, you can make it anywhere in the world. I know this…because I’ve done it….now, let me go find it, and dust it off. Tomorrow is a new day. Be Blessed.

Cadence

I don’t know what I’ve been told, Merrill’s sh*t is getting mighty old. Your left, your left, your left/right left” Ronnie on her am run.

It isn’t exactly rocket science, after all, people have been doing this for years, but it wasn’t until I was jogging this am, that a vision of Clint Eastwood in Heartbreak Ridge appeared in my mind, and as I pictured the scene in which he jogs at a steady pace but his recruits smoke past him, I figured it out, “Oh!”….Cadence….it isn’t just for Privates anymore.

Of course Merrill wasn’t impressed. As a veteran, he understands the nuances of Cadence, and he doesn’t want to talk about it, because unlike me, he didn’t WANT to get up for 5am runs. I don’t know why…I love it, but Merrill found his clip (that is his nitch) a long time ago, it’s people like me, whom grieve the Spirit, that some epiphanies takes longer. I did digress. I was enjoying myself, making up rhymes to sound off, then I realized that I had been jogging for over 2 miles….sure didn’t feel like it….then as my turnoff loomed ahead, for the first time I realized, “I might just be able to do this”. My goals suddenly became very realistic….stay with me…

I had a route…My point A to point B was going to take me 2.4 miles…..beyond that, I wasn’t sure how I was going to accomplish it and some of you reading this feel the same way. You have a goal, a hope, a dream, but God help you, you have no idea what it’s going to take, nor how it’s going to happen and that’s because your mind, body and Spirit are not in harmony, but doing their own thing…Cadence brings all that together…..HARMONY. Don’t you just love it, when ALL THINGS in your life harmonize? Those are blessing days, and as I ran this am, I figured it out. You have to unite all three together….and you do that, through one song, one beat, one CADENCE. Take the controlling mind out of the picture, and The Spirit will lead you to amazing heights….even the bitchy body won’t work against you as much, when Cadence is involved. So today, as you attempt the impossible, but achieve the mundane, remember that unless the mind, body and Spirit is in harmony, you will not achieve ALL THINGS, but only a FEW THINGS. So what you need to do is take a moment, and play a catchy tune…and let The Spirit do, what it does best….MOTIVATE. Here let me help get your started…..It’s world of laughter, a world of tears, a world of hope, and of love and fear, there’s so much that we share, that it’s time we’re aware, It’s a Small World after all…..You’re Welcome. Be Blessed.

It’s not BAD“….Ronnie begrudgingly eating oatmeal this morning.

So I’m eating this bowl of “Super Grains” oatmeal with banana and walnut flavoring walnuts. It’s gross, but I heard somewhere that calories are the body’s energy, so I should be eating. I have a love/hate relationship with food….so for me to be forced to eat, is like being forced to apologize to Merrill for something stupid I did…and no, I did not digress. Truth is, I have two gifts…some would argue that the gift of encouragement is my greatest gift, but isn’t and thank you for saying so….No, my two greatest assets are my Will and my Pride, where one takes me the other MAKES me…and when the two of them get together, beautiful….sometimes nefarious…things happen. Here I Go Again….I really HATE this part.

January 2012 was easily, one of the worst months of my entire life. I was in the hospital a week with pneumonia and a pneumothorax. It was just Sweetness and I, as many of my friends will remember that my husband was in South Africa at the time. After my release, I spent all week alone (Merrill was still gone) on the couch, trying to figure out how I was supposed to live my life again. Out of the ashes of that cluster EFF came the girl you know today…I started walking, and actually caring about what I put into my body, and even though by March I was knocked up with yet another Merrill spawn, I used what I learned, to get back into shape after the birth of Duchess.

The human body is not meant to just sit and sit. How some people enjoy that, I’ll never understand, but I cannot be that person…..And so, here I go again….Me and Mr. Fatigue, fighting it out, through yet another health condition I had nothing to do with. The antibiotics are finally kicking in, the bacteria has left my body a waste land….something I’d imagine a Frat house looks like on a Sunday morning. I must now climb that mountain again…inch by inch, foot by foot….to try to regain all I had before the surgery. HEALTH, is like a bouncer at a nightclub….if you don’t come correct, you won’t get in. The Essence of our being (my EXACT words to my SIL last night) is our health, and if we don’t have our health, we have NOTHING. We can be broken, insecure, financially devastated, alone, stinky, ugly….but at least with our health….we can change all that….and so Here I Go Again….standing at the base of this mountain….looking up…thinking to myself, “Ugh“. My Will….will push me up the face of the mountain….my Pride will sustain me while climbing….So, gotta go. May God have mercy on my soul…..but I think He’ll bless me, because Health, is Divine….So, it’s your choice people….being sick sucks right? Yep, and I for one, am tired of it…now if I could just make it to the room….I could change my clothes. My Spirit is so willing, but my flesh? Well, it’s a total wuss. Ugh….Be Blessed.

My Personal Raid

 

I listen to 70’s disco“…Ronnie sharing her Running Play List.

 

It’s no secret that I’m terrified of spiders. I have FB friends that take great joy in posting and pasting each and every spider meme on the web, to my page, in the hopes of getting a reaction out of me. Some do, some don’t, but ultimately, they’re just trying to help me…I think…but I doubt it…they just like to watch me squirm, and I did digress. Spiders are my mental roadblock. A barrier so affixed in my brain, that it’s become a part of my persona, and to remove it, would be lobotomy that would turn me into a Stepford Wife so fast, Nicole Kidman would be impressed. I know my roadblock exists, I’m okay with it. I’ve grown accustomed to it…C’est Moi….and it’s not dangerous. I suppose, if I were to apply for a position with a pest control company, my fear of spiders would indeed preclude me from my goals….but as I am, whom I am….I have other Roadblocks that need to be dealt with….Roadblocks….mi mind, et tu mind.

Some people cannot get up and speak in public….I can. Some people cannot pick up snakes….I can….Some cannot write for others to judge….Sigh…I can. The thing about our roadblocks, is if we break them down, into their smallest parts, they are..no longer….insurmountable, but alas, we’re not willing to do that….and I get why. Twice in my life, TWICE, I’ve had to face spiders….face to face, toe to toe…I’ve been forced to fight those bastards….and I’ve won….Given the choice, however, I’ll run all day ya’ll all day, because, in my mind, they’ve been given Godzilla like proportions……they’re a god….but I’ve also face God before….

Childhood trauma’s (which is where the spider fear comes from) are difficult to defeat because when faced….we become that baby again…Funny how we’ve overcome so many other barriers in our life, but let it be from our childhood, and we’re that toddler…begging for mommy…….it frustrates me that I’m scared of spiders……It frustrates me that I’m insecure…..It frustrates me that when someone questions my judgment, I become an asshole and always starts a fight…..my Roadblocks FRUSTRATE me, because I look and act just like Duchess struggling for Independence….when they step to me…..But guess what? We are not that baby ya’ll…..we’re not. We are grown, experienced, problem solving adults…..and those roadblocks? Yes well, they’re just wooden barriers meant to be driven through. They’re just wood….your WILL can do all things….PERIOD….Your WILL…..CAN DO…..ALL THINGS, and I can end this MUG right here, because that’s all you need to know. SO, I HAVE PROVEN….that when pushed….I’m a FORCE to be dealt with……pack a lunch Boo…I’ll go all day…sigh….unless you’re a spider….I can do all things, except kill a spider, through Christ, and Paul better not judge me….He didn’t have the wolfies we have….UGH. Baby steps. Gotta go….See the roadblock, step to the roadblock, drive through that mug….it’s like bringing a knife…to a gun fight….and you, are the gun! Okay, the sun is beautiful this morning…..I don’t want to run…UGH. Let me drive through this roadblock. Be Blessed.

Stay Hungry

Hey, I’m leaving to go running. See ya later! “….Ronnie to Merrill….

Merrill was sleeping this morning as I was standing naked over him. If I had had nefarious intents, it would have been too easy…but I was just changing into my “Under Armor” (hollar) clothing to run…besides, he had his back to me, and being a woman of sport, I didn’t want barrel fish…Truth is if/when Merrill and I argue, I like the fight to be fair. I’m not a sucker puncher…..and I did digress. See, the thing about Merrill is that he rolled over, saw my naked ass booty in all its glory, then went back to sleep….He’s not hungry……his tank must be full…Hmmmm, I’ll remember that later….Stay Hungry….it’s the only way you’ll ever get what you want…..NEVER let your tank get full.

Part of my charm, aside from the potty mouth, and vile treatment of Merrill, is that you all recognize my hunger….I am HUNGRY. It’s that desire to be a better person, that draws you next to me….. Whether I’m beating the crap out of my class, pushing my own body to its extreme limits, or simply thinking of new ways to get over the Facebook blockout, you guys know that I desire to be more than what I currently am…Get it?  It’s not my fault…For God’s SAKES, I’m running on a Saturday morning….I would love to still be in bed like Merrill, but we have an agreement…I let him sleep in with Duchess, a TOT whose turning out to be more like me than I’m comfortable admitting, and I get to nap at noon….Mmm, love my power naps…..but I do like what running EARNS me…and while I’d love to just drown my sorrows in diet pills….that would not be very Role Model worthy, and I could end up hurting myself. No, it’s a lot like saving my money to buy that Chanel bag. I’m going to appreciate it more, than if I find it at a Yard Sale for a dollar; which BTW, if you’re selling a Chanel at your sale for a dollar, I’m very interested……just saying…..What I’m trying to say, my friends, is this…

Stay Hungry….never, EVER have enough….never, EVER be satisfied with what you have….always look for the opportunities to improve yourself…always look for ways to be a service to another. I have at least 3 friends reading this that WANT to run, but don’t know how to start…..They want to be Nefarious, but don’t know how to get the evil ball rolling…I’m here to tell you…you gotta experiment, try, fail, try again….. pick the brains of those who have the means to help you….You want fame, Nefariousness, career, enlightenment? Earn it….work it…..Run it….then when you think you’ve had enough…go back for seconds….. See, half the problem with society, is we’re getting too many Garage Sale Chanel’s….I don’t judge…I have a pair of Gucci’s from the Goodwill….but one day, I’ll get that Hermes….and it will be brand, spanking new….it’ll look good…with my amazing body….Feel me?  I gotta go….I want to be Nefarious….I gotta earn it….this…is where it starts….You want what I have? Then do what I do….Let’s Roll. Be Blessed.

I Miss It

Ugh....:)
Ugh….:)

Do I have a picture of my kids? Let’s put it this way, if any one of them came up missing, all I’d have to do is text the milk carton“…Ronnie….it’s a little offensive, I know.

When the winds of change come, and they will in about a month from now, everybody and their brother will be on the “I gotta get in shape” bandwagon. Shoot I ain’t mad at them, there came a time when overweight and fed up, I too went looking for a program that would make me look like a VS model too….I found one, in kickboxing. I Miss it. I haven’t taught a class, since the “incident” and my body, as gracious as it was has now run out of patience with me….like a toddler, “Mommy, mommy, mommy” it has now begun to remind me that I’m in my 40’s, no spring chicken, and that I need to get back out and be an inspiration to others. Where the mind goes, the body follows, and when the body follows, all your dreams come true…I Miss It….bet I’ll pay dearly, when I get back on board….

What I miss the most is running. You have to be a runner to understand what it is about running that so enamoring. A few years back, I ran in the Color Run here…damned near killed me, but it was so spiritual, that I never forgot what it was like to cleanse the mind of all toxins. I’ve been seeking that detox program since…. See, in Cellular Respiration, the by-product of said burning of glucose, is Lactose…the body can go for only a short time with a Lactose build up…it seems like my life, has been running on Lactose toxins. It won’t get me much farther…I mean, I’m not kidding when I admit that I haven’t eaten much since the incident….my kids have, Merrill has….but I KNOW I’ve been so very busy with school, school and the family, that I guess taking care of the mind…hasn’t been a priority…which is a shame because the mind controls all….I’ve just been giving the toddler candy….eventually…..it won’t be enough….

So, my phone is CONSTANTLY reminding me that I’m out of memory. What it WANTS me to do is download the pictures and delete them off , but what I do, is delete apps I enjoy; which sucks, because the memory a Wal-Mart app holds, doesn’t match the memory that thousands of pictures have…So instead of doing what I need to do; which is ask Merrill to help me down my pics, I’ll simply buy a new phone. Sounds reasonable right? Well, we do that with our bodies. “I want to lose weight, but instead of searching for diet and exercise programs I can complete, I’ll simply starve myself” which I understand, but eventually, like my phone, you’ll run out…and then they’ll be no other apps to delete…You get it. The mind is the ONLY entity capable of controlling the body, and if you thought the toddler was bad, let your body run amuck, and see what happens. So…I want to run….I want to feel the blood rushing throughout every cell in my body…I want to feel my body give over after I’ve made it submit….I….want…to….RUN. I Miss It….! Gotta go. Don’t don’t delete apps that make no difference…..get out and do the work. Besides, you know a month from now, you’ll be texting me wanting to join my kickboxing program…..Shoot, if I keep going like this, I’ll want to join it too…I’m here for you…delete the right app….control your body….Be Blessed.

Goal Setting

942ea57f623b3636ebe9d791916b0ec4

“I’m fixin to run this 26k”…No I’m not….not at all.

“One of these days, you’ll know someone who’ll say, ‘Oh I WANT to go to Nursing School’ and you’ll remember ME…and you’ll laugh” Ronnie to a family member.

In my opinion, the greatest path to failure is not setting realistic goals. I mean, how does one wander in the desert without a map? I don’t get it, but I DO. Been getting my learning on in school, and in the Planning phase of the nursing process, an RN will create a Plan of Care setting goals (in broad language) and outcome criteria (specific, measurable) for the patient to be successful. You don’t have to be in school to understand that if the RN set a goal of walking 1hr post op, with the outcome criteria being to the end of the hallway and back, that patient will fail….and fail big. Likewise, simply having the patient sit up in bed, does him no favors. See goals need to be realistic and challenging….otherwise….they’re not goals….they’re cheating….you can live you life without goals, but I think the struggle is what makes life fun….set a goal…achieve it…Goal Setting….Yeah…I know a little something….about this.

I like to run…but I’m not a regular runner, therefore, if I get out of bed and run marathon, it’s going to kill me (although, I think I’d like to run later if anyone wants to join me). If I’m serious about running in the marathon, I can set small, baby like steps that will prepare me for the big day. I know a thing or two about physical fitness as well….like Kickboxing and I will kick your ass if you don’t warm up….muscle weighs more than fat, so you won’t see the weight come off at 1st, like um, oh I know….YOU GOTTA WANT IT…to have it. I know it seems juvenile that I have to write this, but simply getting out of bed, and running, is going to fail your body, mind and soul…..Why do you think the Nursing Processes has a Planning Phase? Mostly because you don’t want to KILL somebody. You’re body is an animal….like my dog on a walk, when he’s done, he’s done. You wanna be successful? Understand that simply crossing the finish line is not a victory…victory is simply the meeting of a series of small goals….So…

This is what’s up. Everybody is back in school, and I’m seeing the “I’m going to stay up all night and study”, and I’m over here going, “Just set a realistic goal”…Honestly, it’s what I had to do…I study 2 hr a day….never less, sometimes more as time permits. Nursing school does not allow for cramming…..oh and I HAVE babies….don’t come at me with that, “You don’t understand” crap….I DO understand, and I’m TELLING you what you must do….to pass. See the information has gotta get in your brain, root around, become a part of you before you’re able to vomit it up on a test. You will fail, all day, if you don’t set goals…small realistic goals….with outcome expectations that are specific and measurable. I mean, how do you know you succeeded if you don’t know what to measure? Goal Setting is the only way to get through Nursing School. I also created a calendar that’s general enough to modify, like the Plan of Care, so yes, I’m a big deal. Now, don’t go hitching your horse to my cart….I got enough….but listen to me….Would you take advice from someone whose never failed? I wouldn’t….I HAD TO FAIL before I understood how to win! 2 hr a day, times 6 days a week is 12hrs, and while that’s still short understand that I KNOW some of this stuff….I’ll increase it, as the need requires. Gotta go…Lab today….Oh I KNOW how to do an enema, the question is, whose going to volunteer to be my patient? Goal Setting….I promise you, I’ll go slow, and yes, that’s gross. Be Blessed.

Finish The Race

Me from the Color RunThe longest yard, is the yard before the finish line. I was in the finishing sprint, of a grueling Color Run, when I saw a causality of the race, on the ground, just a few feet ahead of me. Like a truck sounding his horn at a deer in the roadway, I said, “GET UP”……”No, I can’t. Go on” he returned…Clearly he didn’t know who I was…..”GET UP”….Reaching down, I grabbed his hand, surprisingly, he allowed me to help him….he slowed me down at first, but by the time we saw the Finish Line, he had picked up speed, and was pulling ME behind him…It wasn’t until I vomited on Merrill’s shoes that I realized a Kingdom Key truth, …As we near the Finish Line, we may be exhausted, but our running partners will be renewed…together we accomplished a goal…Finish the Race you started friends….you don’t have to do it alone….when we are weak, He is indeed strong…Heaven’s got your back.

As Dr. Dorian ended his career on Scrubs, he walked down his hallway of memories and saw the people of his past lining both walls. Some were smiling, and hi-fiving him, while yet others encouraged him and forgave him his mistakes. As I look around, I see those given to me to help me win my race, and as I TURN round….I see those whom I had to leave behind. I am not where I am alone. In this race I started, there are many wonderful people who came together and helped me, I shall never, EVER be able to brag that I did it alone..I may have done it MY way, but never alone….I get annoyed when people like, Jay Thomas, an obnoxious radio show, brags, “Not one damned person helped me get to where I am today”…that’s quite a slap in the face to the millions of people whom listen to his show…#rookiemistake

To finish the race we must first recognize that, like Dorian, we’re not alone. In the 5K of life, we pass some, some pass us, we help some, some help us, some throw nasty colored chalk in our face and temporarily blind us, others hand us water to quench our thirst….but we all FINISH…..100%of us finishes…and not one finishes….ALONE, so suck it Jay Thomas. There will come a day, when I shall stand at the metaphorical podium of life, and give my victory speech; which will read in part, “Screw you DACC. I didn’t succeed because of you, but in SPITE of you; which if I think about it, motivated me to succeed….so THANK YOU”. See, even the barriers have value…I gotta go. Final 1 of 3 is tomorrow….DACC is researching the Chemistry thing, but honestly, I left them behind me a long time ago….As you head toward the Finish Line take a look at whom you’re running with….you may need to make some hard decisions about having them as a victory partner…..and I’m just saying. Finish the Race…we’re all cheering for you. Be Blessed.

Baby It’s Cold Outside

My 22 year relationship.
My 22 year relationship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve made the decision that we definitely need an additional living room because Merrill’s am routine is killing me. Oh Dear Lord in Heaven, I’m freezing my butt off, and all so he can be fit; which let’s be honest, he looks good. Duchess may not be up, but as I watch him, I’m considering some Chocolate Milk time….I digress.  It isn’t that I don’t support him, it’s that I actually went to the restroom to write this because of the heater fan….Don’t Judge Me, I write in the bathroom….we do suffer for our art.
I get the quest to stay fit. You all know this, but my quest doesn’t start at 5am. I’ll get up at 5am to watch him, but only if it’s warm. I can’t think of one thing worse, than to be cold in the morning. I’ve encountered spiders, mice, dog poop, cat puke, baby vomit…One time, I encountered a back door that hadn’t been closed all the way, and it had rained in it all night….So Yes, I’ve stepped in it all, and nothing bothers me more, than to awaken into the Tundra that is Illinois. Jimney Cricket, I really gotta get out of here.
I admire his dedication. It isn’t everyone who can get up early to start their day with P90X, or Insanity. I teach this crud, and I couldn’t get up and work out, so props to him. As someone who restarted her classes last night, I love making my body submit to my mind. There is no greater feeling, because of the pain endorphins, than to finally break through (as Shaun T would say) and feel that “clip” kick in. I love it, but I love it at 5pm, when I’m warmer, and the morning cold isn’t knocking at my door. I am not a northern girl. I’ve been here 23 years, it’s time to go where I WANT..which is back to Savannah, Ga…but I can’t leave him…so I’ll have to just b*tch at him, every day. Okay, gotta go. He turned the heaters back on, I’m thawing, and Sweetness needs to get up. He jumped into bed with us last night because he was cold. Hmm, he’s more like me than I thought. If you haven’t chosen a workout routine for the New Year, I highly suggest you do so. Nothing fancy, nothing special. If you want to come to my class, you’re welcome, or…come running with me.
