Today I decided to go through my closet. Donate clothes that I know I won't wear again and try on others to see how close they are to fitting again. I tried on 4 different outfits that will fit in either 10, 20 or 30 pounds. I also have one p... Read more

He ate my Brussels sprouts!
Sunday, February 02, 2014      2 comments

I love Brussels sprout chips and made a bowl to keep in the living room for munching. Thinking they would be safe I went to clean the bathrooms, when I came back the bowl was empty. I kinda felt like the bears in Goldilocks. Looked at the cat... Read more

Whale watching was great on Saturday! It didn't rain but was a nice overcast so we didn't get broiled under the sun. The tide was out so there were lots of harbour seals laying on the rocks. We saw about 12 whales, from huge males to younger ... Read more

What have you accomplished?
Wednesday, August 07, 2013      1 comments

Over the last 18 months life threw some curve balls at me that I would say caused me to derail but definitely slip into neutral. It's taken several months for me to feel like I'm finally back on pace and making healthy, smart choices. I don't... Read more
