It has been a while since I last blogged. To be perfectly honest, it has been a long time since I've done anything on this site. Work has been crazy and I'm just starting to get new hours where I can do more than work, home, eat, sleep, repeat. ... Read more

I'm sitting on the porch and enjoying the relative quiet of the mountains but this tree is making some really funny faces! At least he's a good listene... Read more

This past weekend was worse than last. I am getting back on track, thankfully, but this little detour has gotten me really worried about my vacation in March. I had a goal to reach and it seems I will make it - maybe even go beyond it (if I can ... Read more

I have noticed some of my bad habits are starting to creep in. This week showed only a 2 pound loss, which I know is great but could have been 3 had I not let some of these habits stay around a while. Last Friday I ate out twice. In one day... Read more
A Wonderful Birthday Weekend!

On Friday I spent the morning at the DMV and got my license renewed. Afterwards, DH and I went out to eat lunch at one of our favorite hole-in-the-wall places in town. They are celebrating their 60th year in business this year, and for good reas... Read more
Catchin' Up for My Birthday Weekend

I wanted to try to write in my blog a few times a week but it just wasn't possible for the last two weeks. I'm going to venture to say it won't be for the next two either. This weekend is something special so I don't expect to get it again for a... Read more
Gamer at Heart!
Monday, February 01, 2016      4 comments

I am a bit of a gamer. Not what an "elitist" would call a gamer but more of a casual gamer. I love MMORPG games like Final Fantasy XIV, Star Wars: The Old Republic, World of Warcraft, etc. In those games you have to "level up" by gaining experie... Read more

I have been told at work that I am going to have to transition into a new role. Of course it wasn't presented as a "have to" but basically a discussion was had with the plant manager, my current manager and the Customer Service manager and THEY ... Read more
That is so Cliche!
Monday, January 25, 2016      6 comments

This is probably going to sound like a rant but I really don't mean it that way. It has just been something that has been on my mind for a while and I cannot seem to get it into words to get it out right. Because of this, it will likely come out... Read more
Fall 5 times, Get up 6!
Sunday, January 24, 2016      6 comments

This weekend has been trying for me. Friday ended up being a snow day which was great because I sure could use the break but it messed up my schedule. I worked out in the morning but ended up skipping the evening workout. Then I snacked a lot. I... Read more
Snow Day!
Friday, January 22, 2016      3 comments

I had been hearing about how we're supposed to get a ton of snow (for us, a "ton" is about 5 to 6 inches, lol). Everyone was abuzz about it yesterday at work. I figured we'd see about 3 snowflakes. So this morning I got up, exercised, showe... Read more

As I started eating healthier and working out, my niece started noticing. We got on the subject of weight and she said she wasn't happy with hers but was having a hard time eating right since she hated vegetables and her mother didn't buy health... Read more

This isn't going to be very long but I just had to rant a little about work... So I work in an industry that effects millions of people each year. We are a repair shop for certain types of parts. Each part we repair can have an affect on th... Read more

I went to the doctor on Friday and was actually a bit excited about it. I knew I was going to have blood work done and was anxious to get the results. They were finally posted to my digital file this morning and I am still a little in shock! ... Read more
My Motivations
Saturday, January 09, 2016      1 comments

I have a lot of motivation in my life. But it doesn't always come from a good place. I started this journey the second time around when I realized I couldn't walk from one end of my house to the other without being winded. I decided I needed to ... Read more
