Setback OH NO!
And on the evening of the 8th day, I failed. Okay, failure is too strong a word. I don't like that, it doesn't really apply, because I have NOT failed. Let's say I had a setback. Everyone can recover from a setback, but failure is pretty complet... Read more
Day 8 of the 10 day juice fast and the water bottle is my best friend. I used to drink a lot of water, but I always added a diet powder flavoring. Thus, flooding my body with chemical sweeteners & other manufactured toxins at the pace of 120 oz.... Read more
Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead!
Has anyone seen this video on netflix? I watched it last week, on day 5 of my juice fast, & have lost a total of 9.5 lbs. Thats pretty amazing since I can't exercise at all. It DOES take a long time to recover from a 5 disc cervical fusion. Has ... Read more
Video Zumba - Slow is my Motto
Well in my current post surgery situation, I don't like it (zumba). Only because I am as coordinated as a hippo on rollerblades! But just like everything else, it'll take time to get "into the swing" of it. It looks fun. I love workouts geared t... Read more
So this is Post Surgery?
Okay, so I'm not going to give up on SP no sir. Won't exactly pick up where I left off, cause that didn't work. Just take some time to reread/reimplement some basic SP goals and guides and get back into this.

I got up just minutes before I had to leave for work. Thankfully I've learned to get my clothes and lunch ready the night before. I hit the snooze button one too many times again this morning, arguing with myself if I can get up,... Read more
I can admit I'm dealing with this, can you?
And that is DEPRESSION!
Whether its a symptom of menopause, knowing my son is getting ready to leave the nest, because I've been a single mom without a man by my side for 20 years, or whatever reason; I've been having a really hard time dea... Read more

The 'Other' Joys of Motherhood

1 week after I turn 50 and OUCH!
Okay on Thursday, 12/9/10, I turned 50. Then on Thursday, 12/16/10, I fell, sprained my ankle and broke the basal metatarsal bone in my right foot. I can't drive, I can't work, I can't carry anything, and I can't even walk! It's been 3 days and ... Read more
I hit the half century mark just last Thursday. Believe me I was dreading every second that that day was approaching. How could I be 50? I still feel and act way too young most of the time. Oh yeah, sure I have the battle scars, aches and pains,... Read more
I was emotional last night. On my way home from work I passed an accident on the opposite side of the freeway. Traffic for them was stopped as they had a few fire trucks blocking the freeway. That usually signifies a fatality. As I passed on my ... Read more
