Hmmmm....I may have a problem. Nature's Way chocolate mint cookies (think Girl scout cookies - thin mints). It was TTOTM - yeahhhh, I'll blame that. Well, hormones do have a twinge of a part in this, but I can honestly say only a speck. I bo... Read more

So much thought has gone into ME lately. I have gained weight and it's toying with my mind, heart and soul. I don't like it. There is so much more to me but I let it beat down my confidence. I have been considering my goals for 2017 since No... Read more
Subliminal Messages
Saturday, August 20, 2016      3 comments

We all know that TV is infused with subliminal messages. That's a big reason why you suddenly crave a pizza when you aren't really even hungry. Wait...for me that is just a craving I always have, but you get my point. Before I lost 60 lbs I r... Read more

It's been 16 months since my last blog. I just reread it and it feels like I wore it yesterday. I guess not a whole lot has changed. Stuck! But feeling inspired by my SIL, Healthy4Jeanne. I see her making progress in her journey to a health... Read more

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about changes that need to happen. Who am I kidding? It's not just lately, it's ongoing for forever now. I guess the good news is that if I am always thinking about changes then that means that I want to be a ... Read more

I posted this just over 3 years ago. It's a nice reminder (AGAIN). I know that squirrel are plentiful in our area and some find them equal to that of a rodent. Not me, I think they are adorable and I am often drawn to just watching how t... Read more

Over the weekend I was reminded that I am a person that does well with baby steps. I have still been floundering with many of my decisions. That doesn't mean I haven't improved since the beginning of the year, because I feel I have. So in a s... Read more

Today I ran (walk/jogged) The Claddagh 4 miler. This is my 3rd year doing it. First year with my son, 2nd with my friend and this alone. Truth is I don't really "run" with anyone, I start and finish with people, but I run my own pace and they... Read more

I want to know how so many of us can know and understand what needs to be done to see and feel healthy progress, yet remain stuck in a stagnant, self-esteem-deflating place? How can I know what worked for me before and yet when I set up the pla... Read more
