Does the word diet offend you?

If it does or you feel the need to tell folks they shouldn’t diet … maybe you need  to rethink things a touch … just a smidgen.  Sorry if that statement seems too strong, or negative.  I am not negative in general, but I am kinda worn out with political correctness and elite thinking about…

Weight Cycles

Over the past few weeks, I keep gaining and losing the same six pounds.  I’m kinda tired of the ups and downs and all arounds.  Just sayin’. I have been working to come up with a plan that will help me inch down the scales while allowing me to eat.  I want to build muscle.…

Just so you know ….

Where have I been? Lost in WORK!! Well, the pressure washer caught on fire (we had to get it repaired because Mike needs it–it is sorta done).  We had to find a new truck to replace the one that some brilliant driver destroyed on the snow day (Yea — we get to check this one…

My New Direction

Headspin, tailspin, upside down, and topsy turvy — my emotions were blown as hard as the wind was here yesterday.  I am so excited about today.  It should be calm and chilly, but wonderful for a cycle about the hood.  Who knows … maybe I will just take off and ride 18 miles for a…

I hope that you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day.  We did.  We rode our…

Excuses

I know.  I know.  I know I am not supposed to miss so many days posting. The Excuse or the Reason, depending on your point of view is this: My life — living between two places — is in need of ordering.  I have been working on ordering my life.  All this “STUFF” that needs doing is…

Motivations

Remember the other day when I mentioned that I had a bunch of comments that cheered me up?  Well, I am gonna share them with you today.  Why?  Cuz they just helped me put all my problems in perspective.  Oh, and on my problem front–My left leg is NUMB!  Yeah, you heard it right, my…

The first bomb …

A word before I start (you will see this “word” posted on every page  I write about the confessions):  My preferred method for living healthy is Eating Real Food and moving as much as possible–it feels more like PLAY than work.  I prefer to ride my bike, go for walks, dance with my hubby, and  lift heavy because…
