Why is it so hard to keep to routine during the holidays? Is it the cookies and snacks that keep appearing in the office, my co-workers who want to keep going out to eat for lunch and I don't know how to say no? Or is it lately I just have no ... Read more

Who am I?
The question we have all asked ourselves at some point in our lives...who am I? This is a question I ponder often and wonder if I truly know the answer to this question. Some days I am OK with who I am, I am OK with life, other days I wonder h... Read more
Discovering my weaknesses
It's a new month, June is gone, and I'm still here, only two pounds lighter than May. Some day I will get the hang of this weight loss stuff, but in the meantime I am discovering my weaknesses in this journey and I am having a hard time changin... Read more
Looks like I got behind on a blog once again. I've been so busy with work lately and trying to get cars ready for the big show that I forget about posting updates, etc. I have not gained any weight since my last post, but I haven't really lost... Read more
May 2016 goals and more
Well it's time to make myself accountable again. I'm holding steady at my current weight, and that is not where I want to be. It is time to change it up again, and really track things better. I keep failing myself, and it is no one's fault bu... Read more
Blood work results
Well I turned the big 36 yesterday. I also had a doctor appointment in the morning for an annual physical. Included with that was my blood work. My doctor had the results by end of day and emailed me personally. Everything checked out pretty... Read more
I'm still lacking inspiration and determination to get healthy lately. I get excited, say I'm going to do this, this or this, then instantly am derailed when a coworker invites me to lunch. I have this strong need to want to fit in, and being ... Read more
Wanting it all
Everyone has wants and everyone has needs, but where do we draw the line of a want versus a need? I am not sure that there is anyone who can claim they want nothing, even people with millions of dollars to buy anything they want may want someth... Read more
Case of the Monday's
Where did the weekend go? I feel like it was only a few hours long. I did not do half the things I wanted/needed to do, and now it's Monday again and I'm at work. I feel tired, which is nothing new when you do not sleep well, but I am not fee... Read more
Random Friday thoughts
Well it's Friday...TGIF and all that good stuff. I'm in one of those I don't feel like actually working at work moods. I didn't sleep well and I woke up with a crappy headache and my neck hurts. I'll get over it, but that's my whining for thi... Read more
It's been a long time since I blogged...just couldn't say what I wanted to say.
Well, here I am 4 months later, finally considering doing this blog thing. I kind of lost all my motivation to write when I lost my mom in October. It was a brutal 18 months of helping her and watching her suffer from a rare form of breast can... Read more
Cancer won, my mom is no longer suffering
A lot of you already know what I am about to type, but this is the first time I've felt strong enough to put it into words so everyone who wants to read, can read. My amazing, beautiful mother passed away on October 26, 2015 in the comfort of h... Read more
Cancer sucks and it's winning
Well it looks like my family will be among the statistics of this nasty disease they call breast cancer. I have not updated anyone in awhile, but we got the word from the doctors this week, that my mum can no longer handle any more chemo. This... Read more

Been awhile, but I am still here.
Sorry for the lack of blogs lately. I just can't seem to get my words down on paper for some reason. There is so much going on in life lately, that I just don't find the time to really sit down and type it all out. I'm still trying to get my ... Read more
