Yesterday I met a friend for dinner. We went to this little authentic Mexican restaurant near her house. I looked at the menu and almost everything was a combo platter meal, or a full dinner. Believe it or not, there was no section where you ... Read more

We have had brutal weather over the past week. Rain, which turned to ice, followed by snow, high winds... which brought downed branches, trees and power lines. About 150,000 were without power in my area this past weekend, which caused the gov... Read more

Just returned from a long weekend road trip. We drove 10 hours south to Missouri, which meant 10 hours in the car. Normally a road trip signals Twizzlers, Sugar Babies and lots of other sugar or carb laden snacks. This year, I packed snacks..... Read more

Stress at work. Cold weather. More snow. Colder weather. Icy roads. Fender bender. Guess what! I still managed to bring my lunch every day! I still managed to get at least one mile on the treadmill every day! AND I am proud to a... Read more

Last week I posted about how I was simply amazed by how the body responds to healthy eating and exercise. Well, there is a little more to that story..... That Sunday was a beautiful sunny day in west Michigan. My poor dog doesn't get a lo... Read more

So my first walk on the treadmill after my time away was an eye opener. I had a few stops to finish that first mile walking at a 15 minute mile pace (which really is a brisk pace for this short girl). Yesterday was day 15. I have walked a... Read more

You ever want to slink in the back door and go completely unnoticed? I do. However, sometimes you just have to suck it up, take a deep breath and take that first step through the front door and face whatever lies on the other side. I want... Read more

You know! We all have one! That one photo that someone snapped that caught you in a less than flattering pose! BAM! There it is! The one that perfectly catches that fat roll, the double chin, the protruding belly or whatever other thing it ... Read more

I don't say I can't.... because I truly believe most times I can. Most times, I can but I don't. I wouldn't say I am unwilling.... until it comes down to doing something and I am unwilling! Which brings me to self sabotage. I read someon... Read more

Oooooh I hate slowly! I know that at times, slow is the way to go, but when it comes to feeling better, well I want that RIGHT NOW! I spent most of the weekend hanging around the house. I did walk two miles on the treadmill on Saturday an... Read more

I know, that sounds totally wrong - but after my recent bout with the flu and dropping 9 pounds in a short period of time due to not eating and feeling incredibly weak, I am proud to say that I am eating normally, drinking normally and gaining m... Read more

I had an awful case of the flu - actually two strains of the flu - A & B, along with a sinus infection. It knocked me clear off my feet and had me sleeping on the couch for two days straight. I was unable to eat, and lived on sipping Gatorade ... Read more
