Run Day 1

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      6 comments

I started walking with my Spark buddy again for 2 - 3 mornings a week several weeks ago. As we've walked and talked, I've found that I feel better. Earlier this week I told my hubby I was ready to start running again. Funny thing was I told m... Read more

Surprise! I'm here!

Yesterday turned into one of those surreal days where you feel like you were run over by your life and you are not q-u-i-t-e sure what happened. When I ate my breakfast yesterday morning, I had a sharp pain in my neck that made it uncomfo... Read more

Ugh ... what a week!

I'm not complaining ... or maybe I am but wow, what an incredibly hectic week. I started out strong but by Friday, I was dragging. This week isn't looking any better ... in fact, it looks more hectic and frantic. In order to attempt to ... Read more

Need some real rest

I am not sleeping well at all. I keep having nightmares and my sleep hasn't been solid, deep or restful for several nights in a row now. Tomorrow is a 16 hour day if I don't get up and go run in the morning ... an 18 hour day if I do. As of t... Read more

Yesterday my hubby and I got our storage unit completely emptied, swept and signed off. We're no longer paying rent on a place to keep things we don't have room for! We do have a pile of boxes in our garage that need to be gone through and lot... Read more

Fueled by competition

Thursday, April 30, 2015      5 comments

So ... I have this little problem. I'm a perfectionist who always wants to be the winner at everything. I'm not a braggart, I just want to be FIRST place ... Always have, probably always will. I joined this 14 day challenge through the wo... Read more

I'm Grumpy!

Tuesday, April 28, 2015      9 comments

I am struggling with some things that are not under my direct ability to control and it's making me really grumpy. My natural communication style is calm, collected and compromising but I don't want to be any of those things right now. Read more

Measurable progress

So, I didn't have the courage to get on the scale when I started over again this time. I'm content to go with what I had in my tracker from the last time I adjusted my weight ... and that means the scale reflected a 2 pound loss this morning! ... Read more

God's word is always on time

Sunday, April 26, 2015      7 comments

The message this morning was on finding our joy in God rather than in our circumstances. I so needed to hear that. I needed to be reminded that there is still a place I can carry my brokenness to and be filled up. I know that trials are given... Read more

Struggling today

Saturday, April 25, 2015      9 comments

It's one step forward and two steps back. My exercise has been good today but I'm really, really struggling with eating. Mother's Day is quickly approaching and that makes me very sad. Last year we took my mom on a train ride with a friend of... Read more

Whew ... I'm plumb wore out! Started early and accomplished 98% of what was on my to-do list today! Woohoo ... laundry - done; grocery shopping - done; cooking for the week - 98% done (I still need to cook some meat and make buffalo cauliflow... Read more

My attitude needs work ...

There are certain things in life that make all of us happy ... but not all of us are made happy by the same things. There's also the difference between knowing and doing. Take for example (for me), running. I do not LOVE the process of going ... Read more

Ready to go ...

... forward ... I'm ready to go forward. I took off this weekend and spent time with just my sister up in northern Idaho. I love my sister. She is sweet, kind, level headed, financially smart, just retired and what I want to be when I grow up... Read more
