Healthier Eating
Saturday, March 21, 2020      8 comments

Something New
Wednesday, October 23, 2019      6 comments

My diet needs improving, but I have been creating a good exercise habit. One step at a time. I haven't totally given up on nutrition, but I've had too many sweets and made poor choices eating out. I know (for me) tracking is the best way to l... Read more
Pot Luck
Thursday, October 17, 2019      8 comments

We had a pot luck at work. It's fair to say this caused me a little anxiety. Would I eat too much? Would this throw me off my game? It was going to be a pasta bar with salad, appetizers, and dessert. I did great. I was hungry at 11:30 ... Read more

As you know (or at least my mother knew)... if I'm quiet, I'm up to no good. It's been a rough couple of days. Big Binge! Talk about throwing myself on the ground and then stomping on myself. Over and Done. Ready for a Healthy Monday! ... Read more
Feels Like a Breakthrough
Wednesday, October 02, 2019      10 comments

My snacks at work are "usually" healthy. I pack things like granola, yogurt covered raisins, almonds, string cheese, grapes, apple slices. My evening snacks are more like a mini Klondike ice cream bar or Snackwell sandwich cookies, a peanu... Read more
Believe It or Not
Tuesday, October 01, 2019      11 comments

How many times have I heard... "It's not starting over. Pick up where you left off and move forward"? or "Fall down 7 times, get up 8." or "There is no perfect time. Just start." It's true. I think that I finally believe it. I've had... Read more
Totally Lost My Confidence
Monday, September 30, 2019      11 comments

It's only been 12 days since my aunt's surgery and my power of attorney for health care was activated. 12 days since my world was rocked and I became responsible for my widowed aunt. She's in a nursing home right now and we're looking for a pl... Read more
Hills, Curves, Twists and Turns
Tuesday, September 17, 2019      8 comments

I knew going back to work was going to add stress, alarms, time constraints, tiredness to my journey (up hill). Add in a head cold (curve) and it's even harder. What's the saying? "When the going gets tough, the tough get going!" I work ... Read more

Smile a Little Smile
Thursday, August 08, 2019      6 comments

This blog is about the little things that make me smile! When I measure my Kashi cereal into the recommended 2/3 cup serving size, there are no little bits left at the bottom of the box. You know that small amount that isn't a serving, but... Read more
