  • A little quiet in a crazy time

    12/19/2014 3:18:55 PM, by FITTEREVERYDAY

    I work for a college and classes are over so it's quite quiet right now. On break today I decided to head out to the park next to my building to make some footprints on the snowy path. So worth it even for 10 minutes of absolute quiet. Nothing but my own footsteps.... Read more

    12/18/2014 11:57:48 AM, by TRAIN_2_RUN

    “You can complain that roses have thorns, or rejoice that thorns have roses.” ~ Ziggy I choose to rejoice that thorns have roses. It’s always better to look at the positive. Sometimes there are things that present themselves in life where it’s hard to see the rose and you may end up focusing on... Read more

  • A different approach to December.

    12/8/2014 3:42:59 PM, by FITTEREVERYDAY

    I think right now using the nutrition tracker is adding to my stress and not doing much else for me. I also have this thing about not remembering to use it with so much happening. It may help at some point but for me December is not the time to start again with it Instead I'll be doing what helpe... Read more

I was disappointed that what used to be a Thanksgiving celebration of 17 has dwindled to just my husband, our daughter, and our son in law. I was annoyed that the spiral cut ham I ... Read more
