All I need...

I have really been struggling with my self image lately, well for the past 30 years or so. My husband is always telling me I'm beautiful, but then I think that's his job, that's what he's supposed to say. I am always telling him not to poke my... Read more

So today I really got excited about our upcoming move. This will be our 15th move in 27 years! Kind of hard to believe. It's an exciting move though because we are going home (AZ). We will be closer to family and friends, but at the same tim... Read more

A friend of mine sent me the following in an email. I think it is very appropriate, for me at least. It also made me laugh out loud and still does even though I think I've read it at least 10 times. LADY'S YEARLY EXAM I went to t... Read more

I do a lot contemplating. Not really about anything in particular, but about a lot of things in general. So, the other day I was doing my elliptical and I had an itch on my stomach. Naturally I scratched it. It felt much better. I just kind... Read more

The other day I was in the commissary (the Army's version of a grocery store). I get to the checkout counter and I ask the cashier how her day was going. She replies, "Fine. I just got off my break. I had 2 of those Reece's cups!" My mouth ... Read more
It's a love/hate kinda thing...

My husband, darling man that he is, got me a Wii Fit for Christmas. I love it! And I hate it (just a little). It challenges me, but it also kind of antagonizes me. It's encouraging but it's also judgmental. Maybe I'm just overly sensitive, ... Read more

A few of my healthy eating accomplishments
Tuesday, March 10, 2009      2 comments

I have to admit that I am a HUGE fan of sweets, so when I started on my new healthy lifestyle it was very difficult for me to give up, or at least, minimize my sweet intake. A usual breakfast for me USED to be 2 pop tarts and (maybe) a glass of... Read more
