Over calorie range, but not by much!
Today was another hungry day. But I feel like I did a pretty good job of sticking with healthy choices...mostly. Breakfast was two eggs and two pieces of toast. Lunch was potato soup with some black beans thrown in. Dinner was spaghetti squ... Read more
Christmas in February
This last Christmas, my family was supposed to go to my in-laws to celebrate. However, they live about 4 hours away and there were a couple of small problems. One - it was cold, in the teens. Two - the heater in the vehicle we would take wasn'... Read more

Compliments - How do we handle them?
I remember a piece of advice...or maybe it was a mandate...from my mom. She told me that if someone pays you a compliment, you say thank you. I've never forgotten that and, to this day, I tell someone thank you when they compliment me.

What did you do?
Yesterday, I decreed (because I have that power!) that today was a day to do something nice for yourself. AND, you aren't allowed to feel guilty about it. So, I thought about it. What nice thing can I do for myself and not feel guilty? I've ... Read more
I'm not alone!
Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog yesterday. It is good to know that I'm not the only one who beats herself up...regardless of how short the beating lasts.
Let's make tomorrow/today (Tuesday!) be a day that we do something nice... Read more
Why is it?
Why is it that if we do everything on our to-do list, except one, we feel like we either didn't do anything all day or didn't do enough? Generally, if we let our brains work and our logic comes through, we don't feel that way for long. But wha... Read more
I walked to the library!!!
For the last 400 years, it has been cold and snowy here. Maybe 400 years is not the exact number, but it feels like it! The cold isn't too big a deal, but the snow is. Walking in snow is harder than walking in the sand! Plus, I sink down. S... Read more
Did some deep cleaning today
My in-laws are coming into town next weekend and the weekend after that, I host Bunco. Decided that there are some areas that could use some extra cleaning. So, today, after the gym and grocery shopping, I decided it was time to be a grownup a... Read more
Much better today, thank you!
Yesterday was a rough day...well, after I got home that is. Today was better. I left work a little after two since I had meetings that started at 5:00 pm and went until 8:00. I took the time to meet my friend at the gym and we did a kick-butt... Read more
DH and I both work full time jobs. DS is a senior in high school and a typical lazy teen. When I got home from the gym, I was hungry and I asked the boy to start dinner. Dinner was tacos, so really, all he had to do was cook some meat. He st... Read more
My Heater Works!
For most of the winter, the heater in my vehicle has not been working. The heater core is plugged and needs replaced. This winter has been colder than most winters (here locally) and we've had WAY more snow than normal. I've gotten use to wea... Read more

Had trouble getting going today
After my super busy and productive day yesterday, I had the hardest time doing anything today. Slept in until almost 9:00. Finally dragged my butt to the gym a little before 11:00. Came home, cleared the gutters with DS's help and finally too... Read more
