I said I was going to take a summer trip this year, just like when I was a little kid and I did it. I drove almost 2000 miles from my home all the way up to Nashville TN. Part of those miles I shared with my younger sister, but most of them I drove alone. And oh the solitude of driving long stretches of … Continue reading I took some time….
This past week was mostly about my youngest child turning 20. We had a weekend full of festivities. Her siblings took her to dinner and the Rocky Horror Picture midnight showing at one of our older theaters in town, the next day they took her to get lunch and her very good friend took her to Macy’s to buy her present. We had a very … Continue reading No more teenagers….
I am not sure what I will write about this week, but look, I have already written a whole sentence, so maybe I do have something to say this week. I had a great time at the Rascal Flatts concert on Saturday night. I went with my hubby and my youngest daughter. I think she was surprised how many of the songs she actually knew … Continue reading Back in the saddle again, wearing my boots!
I seem to be maintaining the weight loss pretty well. I weighed myself on Monday like I promised myself I would. I came off a weekend of a holiday party and free reign to eat whatever I wanted. The scale said I gained three pounds, which I would think was unreasonable. But I will not say it did not bother me because it did, I … Continue reading Rose
Well….I made) it, the whole 21 days and I feel really glad… it’s over! 🙂 In the end I lost 7 inches total; I want to say at least 10 pounds. I find it hard to believe I actually made it, there were times when I thought I could not do it, even before I really started it, I was convincing myself that I couldn’t … Continue reading I did it
Breaking news, I have joy in my life again! I believe it is because the end is coming to this diet hell I have been putting myself through. My feelings of joylessness were very strong last week and I read the reason behind that. It was my body withdrawing from the things that I was used to eating: sugar, refined carbs, and caffeine. It is … Continue reading Red Cardinals
I was in the kitchen the other day and my youngest looks at me and says “What’s the matter Mom? Are you sad” I told her there was nothing wrong and she said, “Oh yeah, you have no Joy right now, I forgot.” Everyone in my house, my friend and people at work know how hard this has been for me! This hormonal reset is … Continue reading I have no joy….
NO! But I have to since last week I shared my excitement over the “Hormone Reset” diet, (I gave you information on it). I should have read the book before I shared it with you. The first mistake I made was thinking that you had to go without certain foods for one day every three days; that was totally wrong. You have to go three days without the one … Continue reading Is there a reset button?
I have been running for 2 years now. I have heard somewhere in my past, after 6 months or so you become euphoric about working out and it feels so good. It’s been two years; I still don’t feel it. I do it because if I do not work out I would weigh 90 thousand pounds, but I never really get that feeling of joy … Continue reading I run because I am tired, I am tired because I run
Why didn’t anyone tell me I was fat? “How could we?” was something I was told when I asked that very question. How could they, I would not have taken it well, but it is something I believe that I needed to be made aware of, so of course I am blaming everyone else. Not really, I blame myself, but I would love to make … Continue reading No one told me I was fat…
