Saturday, January 09, 2016      4 comments

I haven't been quite myself this week and I'm not sure why. It could just be that we're at the beginning of a new year and like every year I expect so much more of myself. It could be that we haven't seen the sun in about a week now. It could... Read more

I didn't sleep much last night. My husband had another call from his sister yesterday about his mom... You might wonder what this has to do with me - sometimes I wonder that too. Even after 20+ years of marriage, Tom's mother is not, nor has ... Read more

Starting a new year - today!
Monday, December 28, 2015      7 comments

One year ago today I made a commitment to myself to make some serious changes in my life. I wasn't happy with my life, my health, or my weight. I hadn't found SparkPeople yet - that happened in mid-January. I've had some challenges over the p... Read more
Getting Back on Track
Sunday, December 27, 2015      4 comments

I love coincidences - it's like the Universe is speaking directly to me! I opened SparkPeople this morning and Today's Top Story is '3 Ways to Get Back on Track During an Off Day'. The very thing I needed to read this morning. I haven't e... Read more
