Starting Over

Friday, February 24, 2012      3 comments

Crazy - Me or My Schedule?

Tuesday, September 28, 2010      4 comments

This morning I read an article about work, stress and being a workaholic, something I can truly identify with. My average day begins at 4:15 am and I am not done until 11:00 pm. I feel like I am getting plenty of rest, (it seems the older I ge... Read more

My First Reward

Thursday, June 17, 2010      8 comments

Being over weight most of my adult life and going through various weight loss programs as with being a part of Sparkpeople (which I personally view as a lifestyle change and not a diet), one process seems to be a standard tool. Reward yourself!... Read more

Been here a Year

Monday, May 31, 2010      8 comments

My Inner Mind's Battle

Monday, February 22, 2010      6 comments

My battle rages on and I feel like I am truly going in circles. Sometimes I wonder if the genes of my family are imprinted so deep in the pores of my body that I will forever go in circles. My Irish heritage has me vertically challenged, the N... Read more
