My husband and I took our first cruise about two-years ago and immediately decided to take another with our children. We did and what a blast. We relaxed and enjoyed island life in the residence style. That includes eating directly from the o... Read more
Steps for success

I have always heard that you should take 10,000 steps per day to aide in weight lost. What you don't hear is that it can be discouraging when you start there and don't reach that goal. I have decreased my steps to 5,000 per day for the month o... Read more

Okay, so I'm not quite fit yet but I am surviving T25. I make myself come home change clothes and get started before I can talk myself out of exercising or decide to eat. It has finally sunk into my husband that he can not make me stray from d... Read more

I believe that this is one of those prayers you learn as a child but never really learn its full magnitude until you have truly reach the end of your rope. Well, today was that day for me. I have determined that to calm a heart and soul takes ... Read more
To the good things in life
Tuesday, October 15, 2013      2 comments

Life is full of good things but sometimes we over look them and ignore them. Just because a particular person may seem to drive us crazy we overlook that it is caring and not hating. Positive thinking means finding a rainbow in every down pour... Read more
Empty nest
Sunday, October 13, 2013      1 comments

In my life I have heard about being an "empty nester" and never quite understood the meaning. Now that my husband and I are "empty nesters" I still am not sure I understand. We have decided that living for us now is what this time is all about... Read more

A small pound lost is better than no lost, however, the people that compliment you send you out-of-space. A guy at work wanted to compliment that he had noticed I had lost some weight but apologized because he did not want to cross any forbidde... Read more

Yesterday was a bust for insanity, I did not do my workout, but today...well I am back at it. I did have some exercise yesterday just not as intense or as long but I am up and ready to go today. I have to wonder if I will be able to keep this ... Read more
