I've never been one to rise early and enjoy it - NEVER. No one who knows me will ever call me an "early bird" or "sunshine" without flinching to my immediate reaction. But I have self-diagnosed one recent problem. I work a pretty intense... Read more

This weekend was full of parties, lent fish fries, snacks and beer - it definitely kick started some bad cravings. Funny how that works. The best part of it all, I can see it, definitely feel it and know that I'm not a failure because of it. ... Read more

... or blue or red. Yes, my friends, the devil comes in many colors AND flavors. Girl Scout cookies. They have landed, and landed on my desk. There's chocolaty minty goodness of the Thin Mints, the creamy and crunch Peanut Butter Patties and... Read more

A spark friend recently reached out and got me out of a slump. I'm so grateful for all of the new connections I've made here. Her challenge to me was to follow my program and track but not weigh myself until March 1. It's killing me. But ... Read more
Chasing the Wagon~
Thursday, February 14, 2013      6 comments

I'm reliving my lifelong struggle. I fall off the healthy lifestyle wagon and wake up everyday with a "today's a new day" attitude, but keep slipping. I know how it feels to eat healthy and stay active - it's great - and I know how awful it fe... Read more
