Geez, I’m really behind on my posts. I read that when a writer feels some burnout, she should take a break, and that’s what I did. Although I wouldn’t say I was burned out so much as out of ideas, or the ideas I thought would work as a post didn’t excite me enough to… Continue reading 6 Reasons to Smile January 2018
Looking back to Devon’s graduation from high school and Madison’s 6th grade graduation (yes, same day) in 2011, I distinctly recall the pictures that people posted of me at the breakfast place we took everyone to eat in between events. I stared at my arms in the photos and couldn’t believe they were so enormous,… Continue reading 30 Days to Graduation
A few years ago, I was introduced to BeachBody by my friend, Kristen. I think I started out by buying Shakeology through her, then fell off the wagon, then got restarted, and then finally got hooked on it enough to drink a shake daily. I truly enjoyed the shake and looked forward to drinking it,… Continue reading The Second Ultimate Reset with Coach Kristen
A friend of mine gave me this idea inadvertently. I was standing in the shower wondering how I could get myself on a schedule of writing because honestly, I’ve been struggling. I decided that I could do a Top 5 list like one of my Facebook friends and at least Friday would be handled. But… Continue reading Top 5 Friday for June 10, 2016
Thinking there was never going to be a zero calorie sweetener that wouldn’t slowly kill me, I gave up hope of ever finding something acceptable to put into my coffee. After discovering just how bad aspartame is and having a reaction to Splenda that resulted in not one, but two trips to Urgent Care, I… Continue reading Life is Z Sweet(est)!!
When I hopped aboard the scale back on Thursday, I was shocked. Yes, I knew beforehand that I had gained a few pounds because I had not been eating well due to depression, stress, and pain from my lower back, but I didn’t realize how much damage had been done in such a short time.… Continue reading The Scale Effect
Yesterday I bought a new scale. This purchase marks only the third purchase of a scale in over 20 years. The first one lasted a very long time, and I especially loved when it started to die because it would vacillate between telling me I weighed 40 pounds and 140 pounds. When was the last… Continue reading Healthy Focus
What I’ve noticed today is that many people want to lose weight but they don’t want to do the hard work to be successful. And trust me, I know how hard it is to lose weight. I have lost weight, gained it all back, lost it again, and gained it all back numerous times. Last… Continue reading What I’ve Noticed Today is…
The weeks are flying by but I am on my third list of Five Things I Can Do for Me. This idea was started by Laura Crawford (aka ‘SemperFiMomma’), and it’s amazing how few things I actually do for myself. Are you the same way? It’s time to take stock of what happened (and what… Continue reading #5Things for Me — Monday, September 2, 2013
Whew! My arms are shaking. Joyce Vedral kicked my 20+ years younger butt and she didn’t even break a sweat. Meanwhile I was perspiring profusely and I had to go down in my weights. I used to do the program called 8 Minutes in the Morning with Jorge Cruise but then stopped. Definitely felt how… Continue reading Not a Couger Yet!
