New hair! Oct 23, 2014
worked my backside off this morning in my workout. OWNED IT. Don't slack off just because it's the holidays. Your body deserves better.
Today would have been my dad's 71st birthday. I know it would please him to know that I ate beets last night, and really liked them. Still don't like them pickled, though!

Breakfast then bells on my balcony.
7 am, sunny and 65 degrees equals perfect time to run!
When I got to work this morning, I was pretty convinced I was going to have a bad day. That turns out to be not the case. Life is not perfect by any means, but it's good. :)
Wisteria? Saw these on my run this morning.
Had a good, if hot and tiring day. Treating myself with a cool shower and some Ginger Ale 10.

The best one so far.
Cowards leave nasty comments on stranger's Spark Pages and then turn their page offline. I find it hilarious that I got body shamed on a weight loss website.
Love my Bingley!
