Eight times in a row.
Then, I will be golden.

What Ever Happened To.....

Getting back into the Swing
I'm making adjustments and getting myself back into a routine that includes regular exercise, stress relief and sparking. All in all, a good thing. It is taking some practice to get into the habit of making real time for myself, not just squeezi... Read more

This has been a weird month for me, but I have come out on top. Unfortunately, that is where my weight is sitting also. Weighed myself this morning as a starting point, and I see now that I am at my highest weight. If I didn't face it, I would j... Read more
One Meal at a Time
I am taking back my control one step and one meal at a time.
Too often, I have been grabbing whatever is available and grabbing more without any thought to the consequence or the way it would make me look and feel.
