There is an old Southern Gospel Song called "Excuses" by the Kingsmen. Now, in this song, there is a phrase, "Excuses, excuses, you'll hear them every day. And the Devil he'll supply them, if from church you stay away." I want to modify that l... Read more
It's too bad that this is July and not February, because this might actually be a great Valentine's day post, but alas, it is what it is. Every day, I hear reports of hatred and strife. I hear people cutting others down for no apparent reason ... Read more
AHHH What a few days
So, temptation (as I knew it would) reared it's ugly head on Thursday and I was prepared! My Momma outdid herself as usual and oh, it was sooo tempting because I KNEW how wonderful some of the stuff I avoided would taste! Here is her table: ... Read more
The more things change...
I was thinking tonight about how much has changed over the last year. I am more than Blessed and above all else, I know where my Blessings come from and God has Blessed me RICHLY! While this year has had it's many struggles, God is using each ... Read more
It's been awhile... I have a New "F" word... and Turkey day question...
Well hi ya'all - I can't believe it's been over a week since I posted a blog. So very much has happened since the last time I posted. The Pioneer Days at Church was VERY nice! I even got out an walked around a bit (shh...don't tell my knee do... Read more
Excited about Sunday!!
My husband and I made the difficult decision last Sunday to switch Churches. Now to some this may not seem like a big deal, but for us it was. It's actually a homecoming for me as we went back to the Church where my daughter and I accepted Chr... Read more
If you are like me, and you subscribe to Facebook or Twitter, your news feeds today have been inundated with pictures of Veterans, thank you pictures, American Flags, etc. I tell you, it makes me PROUD to have the friends I do who are willing t... Read more
I am now on crutches for my knee...what other crutches do we lean on?
It seems like I can't win for losing with this knee of mine, but I am Blessed to still have a leg. Anyway, as I was learning to maneuver my considerable size into the bathroom, I started thinking about how Blessed I was my daughter had a spare ... Read more
Dreary days, Big Blessings
I have not posted a blog for the last few days because if I can't post ANYTHING positive, I try not to post anything at all. Since I last posted here, I have dealt with jealous adults acting like prepubescent children, illness in my daughter an... Read more
On a Positive note...
I have not been shy about listing my struggles on this weight loss an movement journey. To every negative, I seem to always end up finding a positive. For example, my left knee has a medial collateral ligament tear, so moving is super hard (ne... Read more
Ohhh whatta day!!

Blessing in Disguise
Well... it just wasn't sore muscles. By the end of the day yesterday, I could not move my right arm even with the help of Tylenol Arthritis. Come to find out, it is tendonitis of the bicep. So, no workouts for me for awhile since my knee is s... Read more
Where did those muscles come from???
So, if you didn't read my blog yesterday - GO DO IT!
Seriously, I'm just kidding, I had a make up day yes... Read more
A Good Kind of Exhausted
Today was a BUSY day for me. I really stepped out of my comfort zone and although I will probably regret it tonight (my KNEE IS KILLING ME), I made up for the missed workouts this week, the risky eating the last two weeks, and the laziness that... Read more
Pushed the limits...will make up for it this week!
So, this past week was my anniversary --15 years. Not bad for a lonely man and woman who met on the internet, dated for 6 months, was engaged for a month and a half, and tied the knot in the local courthouse. God has definitely Blessed our mar... Read more
