So yesterday was the office dinner party. I tried to snap a couple pictures before I left - but if I set the flash - you saw a big white spot in the mirror - and if I didn't set the flash, I was lost in the shadows. I will have to get my daugh... Read more

Ever wake up, go through your morning wake up routine and become filled with negative thoughts. You look in the mirror and all you see is the double chin, or your arms waving back at you. You think you are doomed to be fat for life. You think... Read more

After work yesterday, met my daughter and walked the trail - two times around the loop. It was nice to walk and talk - although it was a bit of a challenge to try to keep her pace! I told her the second loop that she may need to slow down a bi... Read more

Hmmmm It started this morning when I walked past the bagels and cookies. I wasn't hungry - but the cookies were calling me - louder than usual. I got up and broke a piece off a peanut butter cookie. Every time I walked past the kitchen, I bro... Read more

Went for my walk today. I'm not sure if it is me, or if every day there is something new. I walk the same path through the same wetlands, but everyday it seems there is at least one thing I didn't see the day before --- or maybe I just wasn't ... Read more

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      5 comments

Sometimes I like to think of life like this - We start out as a plain, naked plate. As we live and experience life we begin to color our plate. Some sections are bold and bright, others are shadowy and dark, some are delicate and intrica... Read more

Yesterday was that day. No motivation, grey skies, rainy, cool weather, achey knee. No walk at noon, home from work with only 2,000 steps on my fitbit. Got right on the treadmill and started walking - for an hour! Came upstairs to heat some ... Read more
