Today I . . . .
Wednesday, August 10, 2016      8 comments

Today I ate to live. Today I swam for exercise. Today I failed at cooking dinner, which was ultimately good anyway. Today I was hangry and barking at my kiddos. Today I am regretful. Today I am full of hope. What are you today?... Read more

I was going to name this "Day 8 and still hanging tough" but that's not really how I feel. It's more like "Day 8 and kicking butt!" I feel really great right now. Today was my day of rest/crosstrain day for 5k your way but I also challenged m... Read more

I decided more than half way through the day, after I binged on chocolate and sugary treats, that today is Day 1. Yes, I know, it's Day 1 AGAIN but it's a NEW Day 1 and a new start in the right direction. I did 16 minutes of kickboxing and 12 ... Read more

Okay, so it took me a while to force myself to make a change and start exercising. How long is it going to take me to make myself eat healthier for every meal? I gave up soda and juice. I am allowing myself to have unsweetened tea when we go ... Read more

I have always wanted to dress up as a sexy maid. Only I don't want to dress up like that in public, just for my hubby :). I am a little too modest for going out in public like that - not to say it's not acceptable. I found a site that makes s... Read more
