OK, this is what has been on my mind lately and it may or not make sense to you. After I had my babies 13 and 15 yrs ago I seemed to level out at around in 190 lb range. Even though I was severley obese, that is the weight I was comfortabl... Read more

I don't know why... but active.com and the local running club websites are not advertising their races coming up this spring. There are several that I ran in last year that I want to do again and I'd like to plan! Maybe I am just jumping the gu... Read more

I am struggling again..... I can't seem to get out of this "I don't feel good" rut. I know HOW to get out of it, it's just a matter of doing it. I have really been scaring myself with the overeating I have been doing. Not even junk food some tim... Read more

UGH.... I love the start of a new year. It's like a new beginning. So I had all sorts of big and bright ideas (not really resolutions, lol...) for the start of 2012. Then I got side tracked with my Mom's health issues, and her eventual passing a... Read more

So ever since Christmas my Mom has been unresponsive, not eating, not even able to swallow. Going up to visit her at her nursing home she looked like a woman who was dying. Her skin was drying out and she could not even open her eyes and her bre... Read more
