Can you hear it? It is still echoing my head. My inner warrior is back and we had so much fun kicking butt this morning. Okay, so it wasn't as fierce as it was last year, but we are out of practice. This morning I woke up and the house was s... Read more
Searching for the Warrior Within
Friday, July 15, 2011      4 comments

I am on a quest to find the warrior within myself. She came out to play last year and blew me away. I was in awe of her determination. The way she pushed and demanded just a little bit more than I thought I could give. She was strong and fie... Read more

Calories Are Not The Only Thing That Counts
Tuesday, July 12, 2011      4 comments

This week has dragged by, and it was a short week. Summers are always slow, but this week it seemed like most days the clock stood still. I had one day that I was in court all day and really busy, but the rest of the week the phone did not rin... Read more

Focus On The Positives
Monday, June 27, 2011      2 comments

So, I have been moping around all weekend and pouting. I have eaten things that I shouldn't in a search for some comfort. I drank a half a 2 liter of Diet A&W yesterday and flat out refused to workout this morning, even though I was up in time... Read more
