Depression/Overwhelmed, or Both?
The past 5 years have taken a toll. In 2012 my husband left his job of 15 years to be independent rep so I took on helping him administratively on top of my own job. My dad was terminally ill in 2012 and in 2013 he had suggested I take over hi... Read more

But, I feel good this week. Realize I am someone that must track or I... Read more
Been bad last few days, but SP helping me back on track...
The last few days I have gone over calories. Just been hungry, not sure if stress of some possible exciting life chages, fact that Girl Scout cookies came, the weather, getting over being sick, or what! Either way, I am committed to going in ... Read more

31 Days In, and I stuck with it!

As if Oikos Greek yogurt is so good on its own, John Stamos is now their spokesperson. Bonus points! He is a hottie! Liked him even on FH as Uncle Jesse.
Truly, good filling snack. No other yogurts fill up in comparison. And the plain ... Read more
