WooHoo! I don't know how, but I managed to make that step goal yesterday. We took the stairs at the parking ramp (4 flights). I tried to add steps everywhere I could! I am so grateful I was able to pull this off and not have to feel defeated... Read more

Friday, August 28, 2015      7 comments

Tuesday I had my moment in the spotlight. I danced on the stage of life. I basked in its warmth. I soaked it in. I enjoyed every minute of it (except the minute I saw the photos). Today, I am back in the trenches of life. I am no... Read more

Yesterday was an awesome day. I logged over 25,000 steps on the fitbit. When you are a walker, not a runner, and work full time, that is a LOT of steps! I stayed on track with my food yesterday too! Yippee. Today those pesky bagel... Read more

Thursday, July 30, 2015      10 comments

Ever feel like that fish someone caught and tossed in the boat - flopping around knowing that this isn't good, that you really WANT to be somewhere else, a feeling of panic, flopping around but going nowhere? I kind of feel like that today. I'... Read more

Wednesday, July 29, 2015      9 comments

It has been hot here. Hot AND humid. Sticky. Yucky. Not exactly the weather that one wants to go out in and walk a big, black dog. The dog was panting before I put on his leash! So, change of plans. Instead of walking the dog, why not... Read more
