Tomorrow is weigh-in day and I am worried. I know, it's just not about the weight! I have worked out every single day and worn my Fitbit so I know exactly how many calories I have burned. I have never been closer to the exact proportions of c... Read more
Last night we had terrific thunderstorms all around us with lots of wind. The flowers are flattened, but the air is cool and smells so fresh! I'll take it! ... Read more
Yep, my blog is going to be about weather. We don't have air conditioning, so we are hot. We have a well, so we are being very careful with our water (which pretty much means only quick showers)! I have nothing but admiration for all of you w... Read more
Follow the Leader
Have always loved this quote. I have embraced this philosophy in my professional life, but never in my personal life. Now, instead of following people that aren't where I need to be to become healthy, I am trying to forge my own path. Trackin... Read more
Catching up from Spark Solutions, I read about the "all-or-nothing" philosophy we have towards exercise. I used to have that, but right now I feel guilty when I don't work out and usually get it in. I have just made it a habit this summer sinc... Read more
Day 2 of 12-Week Daily Challenge. I always think of changing bad habits, but that might be the negative slant. How about beginning to make new habits?

Today I am excited to take on a new challenge. I just joined a new ST - 12-Week Wellness Challenge. I'm hoping this will keep me accountable as I go back to school and time and organization become the essence. Most, if not all, of the team me... Read more
Holding Me Back
Interesting thoughts to ponder. Been wondering about why, when I have a streak of doing so well, I self-sabotage? Not hugely, but enough to have to restart some part of my life. I realize that I am trying to change a lot of lifelong habits an... Read more
Now some of you may read this and say, so what? I'm hoping others will know what I mean. Yesterday, for the first time since I have been on this journey, I got injured during working out. I rolled my ankle big time and fell hard to the floor.... Read more
I venture a guess when most people think of summer pleasures, they come with things like swimming, lemonade, BBQs, etc., but my favorite summer pleasure is reading. I teach first grade and one of my main goals is to show kids, not only HOW to r... Read more
I slept last night with the windows open and woke up to 61 degree weather. Perfect! Laid there listening to the birds and, because there was a breeze, the wind chimes. I checked my weather app and it said, while there was a slight chance of a... Read more
Wrong Choices, Right Choices
I do not set out in my life to make wrong choices, but I do. That's life. I recently had a conversation in which I was mentioning the my husband and I were beginning to think about the next step in our lives. We thought we had it figured out, ... Read more
#1 reason why it is important to have written down your goals. Too easy to forget them during all the hard work!

When I started on this journey seriously, I knew it was going to be difficult, but had no idea! Self-negativity (is there such a phrase?), sliding backwards, moving, but not always forwards. I have come to the realization that no matter what, ... Read more
Fruits of Labor
One thing I like most about this time of years are the flowers. I don't like to do a lot of work in my garden, but I certainly enjoy the results! With the help and ideas of others, I have done a little bit each year and now get to reap the ben... Read more
