Keeping Your Goals In Mind

I know it’s the week before Christmas and it’s a busy time of year. These past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of musical events, out-of-town company, holiday functions and quite a bit of cooking. As we countdown to the actual holiday, it can be really easy to just throw our hands up in   Continue Reading…

Candy Anyone?

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I have to confess that this is my absolute favorite holiday. I think I like the simplicty of it. Not a lot of decorations, although we do decorate more than some people. Not too much planning and coordination of schedules needed either.

It’s finally over – the major holiday season is past us. For many of us – myself included, avoiding the post-holiday letdown is an important part of our continued success.

Baking? Can You Do It?

Making Sugar Cookies

I, like some of you, really like to cook a lot. My husband often jokes that I won his heart with my chocolate chip cookies. I’ve written before how I baked and ate my way all the way up to 305 pounds. In that post I shared how I realized that I could show my   Continue Reading…

It’s Looking Like Christmas

The Stockings Were Hung

Good Saturday to everyone! We finally finished decorating for Christmas around here. Okay, John finished decorating for Christmas because I don’t do it. He truly epitomizes Mr. Christmas and grew up with a Nana who passed the love and specialness of Christmas onto him in a big way. Without further ado, I present to you   Continue Reading…

Getting Ready to Run 5K

We had a great day yesterday. We decorated the yard for Christmas, we had a nice meal, and I ran a 5K! YAY! This particular 5K benefited a charity organization that provides food to underprivileged folks that live here.  The morning was cold as you can see from my posture walking up to the start line.   Continue Reading…
