There's an app for that

When I get back to basics, I start out with lots of energy and enthusiasm, which usually drops off after the first month. I'm full of good intentions, strong starts, but not so good on the follow through. This is changing. You see, when I... Read more

Ooops I did it again

Wednesday, December 10, 2014      3 comments

Falling off the wagon is such a strange phrase, or at least I think so. Needless to say, I was a stress eater last night, and I know it. The worst part is that I made the conscious decision to do it. Long story short, my bank account appe... Read more

Are you worth fighting for?

Thursday, December 04, 2014      8 comments

It's a simple question, but the answer is quite elusive to so many of us. I'm a mom, and there isn't anything I wouldn't do to protect my kids. So why don't I feel the same way about myself? "Mom's are supposed to sacrifice for their kids... Read more

Head up, shoulders down

Posture says a lot about a person, or so my mother used to tell me. A person who stands straight and tall is a person who is confident in themselves is what she would tell me. Remember trying to walk with a book balanced on your head? I could... Read more

Life goes on

There was a time when a stressful situation would have me diving for the food cupboard and eating everything in sight. After the events of yesterday, it would have been one of those times. Only it kind of wasn't. Did I eat yesterday from ... Read more

In total shock

Tuesday, November 18, 2014      8 comments

I woke this morning to a text from my sister-in-law that my step-brother's ex wife had died. She wasn't very old, and she certainly wasn't in bad health that I was aware of. No one expected this, and we still don't know why. I was not esp... Read more

Breaking down

Monday, November 17, 2014      6 comments

Yesterday I couldn't stand my sciatic anymore, so I took a muscle relaxer. I hate taking them, but sometimes you need to just suck it up and deal, which is what I did. The downside to having done that is that I felt so much better I did things... Read more

This is starting to get on my nerve

Thursday, November 13, 2014      8 comments

Or more accurately, it's already on my sciatic nerve. I've been fighting with sciatic nerve pain on my right side for 3 weeks now. It comes and goes, and lately it's mostly coming to stay. It gets so bad I can barely walk sometimes. I'd ... Read more

Water Water everywhere

Now all I have to do is drink it! This is a constant struggle for me. It's not like I am not willing to give up drinks like soda, cause honestly I already have. I don't reach for a soda nearly as much as I used to. In fact, unless I am o... Read more

The luckiest person I know

Sunday, October 26, 2014      14 comments

So I am sitting here nursing an aggravated sciatic nerve (too many squats yesterday), and I commented to my husband that I am still completely amazed by all the encouraging comments from my blog the other day. He was typing something on his lap... Read more

Completely blown away!

I wasn't having a great morning until I opened my email. I made 2 cups of coffee instead of 1 (I was supposed to be putting by sugar substitute in my already existing coffee, not starting another cup in the Keurig), I was trying figure out why ... Read more

So no kidding, there I was reading a blog written by a Sparker, when I was reminded of a song my father used to sing when I was a kid. That's when I was hit with inspiration. I'm not saying that the blog I was reading wasn't inspiring, because... Read more

Thank you for the anniversary goodies and wishes! It was a good night last night with my hubby, and a very amusing one. People think that we should have gone out and done something special, or had a private night at home. Well, we are both a ... Read more

The big move

Sunday, September 28, 2014      8 comments

Know what's great about moving your home? You get to move your body! Downside to moving (aside from unpacking and trying to find everything)? You moved muscles you haven't moved in a while. Sore does not begin to describe how I feel right no... Read more

Sign of a good amount of exercise

Saturday, September 27, 2014      9 comments

How do I know I got some good exercise in yesterday? I slept like the dead. I mean, I hit the pillow, slept 9 hours, and woke up in the same position I was in when I fell asleep. THAT is some good sleep! My body shut down, recovered what it ... Read more
