  • Tuesday and all is well

    7/19/2016 12:12:56 PM, by MLIEN913

    The heat wave has temporarily broken. That means I can get in my full workout today. Good thing too since I feel flabbier than normal. With all the equipment I have it's harder to do floor routines. I have to give it a try somehow. Without crunches and planks my belly isn't shrinking anymore.... Read more

    I was tired yesterday evening after work. I cam home and got dinner done and made tomorrows as it will be a weight lifting work out day.

  • New Garments - Joel & Victoria

    7/19/2016 7:16:19 AM, by JOHNWBROCKSR777

    Today's Scripture: "Provide for those who grieve...a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor."(Isaiah 61:3, NIV) Do you need a new garment today? Not a new physical garment, but what's c...

  • Getting my head out of my ass

    7/18/2016 11:54:35 PM, by LYNXMYNX

    I am slowly righting this ship. I contacted my ex today on his birthday--though I'd already wished him an angry happy birthday last week when I broke up with him. Lol He just texted back "really". No question mark, no feeling, no nothing. So I texted, "your choice". Lol Later I jokingly asked if I ... Read more

  • The Best Body For Now

    7/18/2016 9:54:40 PM, by BRIGHTSPARK7

    Even though I am on my way down (weigh down!) and have lost 22 pounds, I feel a kind of contentment with this version of my body. It is the best body for now. There is not an ounce of resignation in that statement. Only acceptance. This past week, I've had two people comment that I look great,... Read more

    Boy we had a hot one today! I got up at 8:00 to cut the grass and it was already 86 degrees! I got interrupted when I came upon a group (not sure what a family of rabbits are called) when I was cutting around a bush. I saw at least 8 or 9 little bitty baby bunnies! They are so cute.

    7/18/2016 9:13:33 PM, by SHAWFAN

    ...But I managed to get 30 minutes of walking in this morning before getting terribly sick and coming home. Stomach issues...big time. Yuck. Had a few "accidents." Can't be helped.

If what I describe fits you, feel free to use it as your own. I have an MI personality-mildly insane. Definite... Read more

I've been slacking off a bit since then, mainly because the weather has gotten too hot and humid to run outside. I have a treadmill at home, so no excu... Read more
