And we wonder why it overwhelms us sometimes!? For me, if I don't stay focused, I can pack on 5 pounds in a week with NO problem. My metabolism is nonexistent, dang it. My 150 pound husband in the meantime, burns calories as he's shoveling do... Read more

What a terrific way to start the year, with this crazy mild weather inNew England! "Crazy" and weather seem to go hand in hand up here, always extremes it seems. I've heard people say, "We're gonna get hammered", or "A Nor'easter is going to h... Read more

I Lost Myself
I have been struggling for the past year. Twelve months.......52 weeks. Wow, seeing that makes me realize how scary that time has been. I've had major issues with my health, most recently herniated discs that have prevented me from doing ANYT... Read more
Why Just Once A Year?
On my way to work yesterday morning, I stopped and filled my car with gas and ran inside the convenience store for a banana to go with my oatmeal at work.
When I got back in my car, I buckled up, put it in drive and just took my foot off the... Read more

8:15 a.m- The boss walks into my office and informs me he has two marketing events; one tonight and one at 9:15 am tomorrow morning. I have to design 2 tri-fold brochures on a computer with no graphic software and print 100 copies of each. He ... Read more

Construction on 91 north and southbound has been horrendous- I exit onto 391 from 91N. What used to be 4 lanes is now shut down to two, with concrete barricad... Read more
Did you ever stop to think about that word? Connections- important in so many aspects of our lives.
I feel like I reconnected with my son last night. He gets home from work at 9:15pm, and I asked him if he wanted to walk with. So we walk... Read more
Weathering The Weather!
It's easy to make it through the day, commuting-exercising outdoors, enjoying time in the garden- when it's low humidity and decent temps. The humidity making it 100 + degrees last week was ridiculous though! The break we've gotten in the last... Read more
My Pride(s) and Joy(s)
I had to be mom and dad to both my boys, and I do claim bragging rights. My oldest, Josh, was vice president of his senior class and a football player that was scouted by five colleges, until he blew both knees during his senior homecoming gam... Read more
Smiles, Frowns, Ups & Downs
Attitude means everything. I know this, yet my attitude is my biggest challenge and obstacle. Being 49 years old, I've learned and experienced so much. Overcoming the tragedies of my grandmother's suicide, my best friend's murder, the death o... Read more
Grateful for New Beginnings
We used to feel like failures if we didn't work a "perfect" program, remember? A day of overeating here......decide exercise is for the birds. Then WHAMMO! We would step on that scale and see what we didn't want to see. We'd try to zip those... Read more
