Post-Christmas, Pre-New Year's

Thursday, December 27, 2012      10 comments

January 1 is the start of our Biggest Loser challenge. I haven't been very focused on my fitness the last couple months. Now I am ready. I'm so glad to have a few days post-Christmas to relax, re-focus, think about what is important to me a... Read more

Oreo Balls

Saturday, December 08, 2012      16 comments

We’ve delivered these for Christmas the last two years and had subsequent complaints that we didn’t give enough and requests for the recipe. They’re that good and surprisingly easy! 1 package Oreos 8 oz. cream cheese, softened 24 oz. a... Read more

Back in the Saddle

Sunday, December 02, 2012      13 comments

Without going into too much detail, let me just say that I've fallen off the wagon in a big way, and I'm putting it behind me, moving on, starting over, rebooting, and remembering WHY I AM HERE. 'Nuff said. I'm not posting a November ... Read more

Living Around the Big Events

Tuesday, November 27, 2012      15 comments

It occurred to me lately that I have a harder time with my quest for fitness when life gets extraordinarily busy. I was used to our ordinary level of busy-ness. Kids' sporting events and practices, music lessons and recitals, my work schedule, h... Read more

A Day of Rest. Really.

Sunday, November 25, 2012      9 comments

I thought I was over my complete exhaustion, but maybe not. Today I am catching up on slothfulness. I think my body needs it. Oh, and I'm taking my multivitamin. Maybe my iron is low again. Who knows. Anyway, my plan for the day is rest, rest, a... Read more

We hosted Thanksgiving this year. It turned out that quite a few members of our extended family had other stuff going on, so we had a relatively small gathering at our house. We were planning on 10 of us, and that ended up being just nine becaus... Read more

November Blah Blah Blah

Friday, November 23, 2012      11 comments

Ok, there is no Week 3 Checkin. I've been pretty bad the last week. I was hyper-focused on getting ready for Thanksgiving, and other aspirations fell to the side. So. Back on track now. End of story.... Read more

Don't Judge

Sunday, November 18, 2012      19 comments

One of my favorite people (yes, you, Mary) often says "Don't judge" in her cute, funny way when revealing something about herself that she thinks just might elicit disparaging remarks. I've taken to saying it myself fairly often. It comes in han... Read more

My Fourth 5K

emoticon Today's 5K was my fourth official, outdoor 5K. I commented to my husband what a difference between this... Read more

November's Mid-Month Check

Saturday, November 17, 2012      9 comments

It's time once again to check in on those pesky goals. Again, I feel like I'm doing pretty well sticking to all my goals, but statistically speaking, I'm not doing great on all fronts. A few of you expressed concern that I was being too har... Read more

November: Week 1 Check-Up

Thursday, November 08, 2012      12 comments

I thought maybe checking in every week on the goals would keep me on track better. It's funny -- I feel like I'm doing pretty well, probably because I'm doing so much better than I was last month! But... I'm actually not sticking to my goals the... Read more

Update on the Little Guy

Wednesday, November 07, 2012      9 comments

Thanks for the tip, SEPTEMBERSPIRIT! I have some good news regarding the little boy who was in a car accident. I posted this as a comment on my last blog, but as SEPTEMBERSPIRIT pointed out, probably most of you didn't see that :) Here's th... Read more

Perspective (Prayers, Please)

Tuesday, November 06, 2012      10 comments

As much as I get overwhelmed by the craziness in my own life (busy! stressed! time-crunched! unhappy/annoyed sometimes), today I am struck once again by what really matters in life, which puts my relatively minor crap in perspective. A cowo... Read more

My Day of Delusional Thinness

Sunday, November 04, 2012      15 comments

Today I went shopping for, among other things, knee-high black boots. I tried a bunch of different stores and wasn't having any luck. Either the fit wasn't quite right or the price was too high. In the last store I tried, I had a super helpful s... Read more

November Goals

Saturday, November 03, 2012      9 comments

Okey-doke, time to go public with my Great Big November goals. If you've been reading my blogs, these just might look a little familiar. That's because they are essentially a repeat of my October goals, which... um... did not work out so well. T... Read more
