There's Something A Bit Magical About This Place
I just got home from my Made To Crave Bible Study. It was good, but it seemed a bit more challenging to me today. Maybe God is getting at some deeper issues and I am resisting a bit. Maybe it's because my pastor preached a very emotionally in... Read more
I am sick...again. This is the third time in about two months that I have had this particular chest cold. Every time I get rid of it, I'm so thankful and then it comes back a couple weeks later! Ugh! (And, before you say I should check my hous... Read more
Learning To Listen To My Body

I'm Back (Hopefully For Awhile!)
Well, what can I say??? Last year, I was going very strong and doing really well - I got to Level 11! I lost 7 lbs and was working out almost every day. But then, things happened (sickness, depression, vacations, stress of life) and, frankly, I... Read more
So...now that I have given away most of my work...I still have 8 days of work left and not much to do. Good news...got all my SparkPoints today. Bad news...I have a guilty conscience so I feel bad for doing nothing and getting paid.

Eeeek! Harry Potter night!
OK, so yesterday I went hiking with the family and we hiked for at LEAST 2.5 hours and it was some rugged terrain at times. All of us were thoroughly exhausted by the end of the day. My 3 yr old is such a champ for hanging in there all day! Po... Read more
I'm Back. Again! Lol.

It is morning. I feel sick ... Read more
So, it's been awhile since I last updated my blog. As you read before, I was kind of down in the dumps. But I am pleased to say that things are getting much better. I have still been slacking in the logging of my food and such, but I am worki... Read more
I Need Something...
I need something. And I keep saying I don't know what I need, but I do know. Deep down. I need to learn how to love myself and not desperately grasp for that love from other people.
Ever since I went on vacation, my health goals took a... Read more
