It's Never Too Late, To Start All Over Again!
What a beautiful Good Friday it is today outside my window. I went to bed late, got up early and am super tired, but I was determined to get my workout in last night, BEFORE the stroke of midnight. And I did!
I'm committed to ensuring t... Read more
STARTING OVER...YOU CAN NEVER DO IT ENOUGH TIMES...OR CAN YOU?
I wondered about this, because lately I find myself in this position, more times than I'd like to admit. But, the more I thought about it, I concluded that you can never start over enough times, because at least when you do, you're still trying... Read more
JUST FOR TODAY, DAY #4
OK, so I have really good reason for missing my blogging (Day #3) and logging in here on yesterday (Wednesday). During the middle of the night, as I headed off to bed, my head started to hurt really badly, and then, my left foot was so swollen,... Read more
JUST FOR TODAY, DAY #2
The weather was horrible here, so horrible that I didn't step foot outside at all today. It was dark, gloomy and gray outside, and that's exactly the way I felt inside of me. I've had a horrible headache today, and so I sat, working at my com... Read more

IT'S NOT HOW YOU BEGIN, IT'S HOW YOU END...
Guess how I started my morning? With a blueberry muffin from Panera Bread! Yep, I see you all nodding your heads because you know just how good and tempting those blueberry muffins are. I ate it slowly, while driving. When I finished, I didn... Read more
Writing is Hard Work. Sitting On My Butt Is Harder Work
Since becoming a published author, I have to make a concerted effort to REMEMBER to get off my butt and get my exercise in, but...I do! That's why I'm so proud of me. Today my scale was up a bit, but am I discouraged? Not at all. I'm on tra... Read more
Day 12 - 2014
