So it's been a bit crazy in my world lately. I was stressed to the max leading up to a very milestone birthday in November (hint - it starts with a "5" and then a "0"). Why do we get so hung up on numbers? Well, I do, it seems. I was n... Read more

And a happy, but sleepy, Monday it is. I had an awesome weekend - my darling daughter came home from school for the weekend (last minute decision as she was able to get a ride back with a friend). She's only been gone for two weeks, but it... Read more

One thing I have found since I started exercising and running - for the first time ever in my life - a few years ago, is that it's a darn good stress reliever. It's hard to hold on to worry or stressful feelings when you are pounding down the ... Read more

What a week that was. I started off with a good Monday - well, as good as a Monday can be. Work - and then off to the gym. Had a pretty good workout - despite some smart bulb there deciding that 5:00 p.m. - when it's the busiest - is gre... Read more

So I've been back in the "healthy mode" for a month now. I saw some great results when I first got back into it. The past couple of weeks - between doing the 30 Day Shred/running outside/going to the gym (pick one per day), I have seen a d... Read more
