  • Hungry

    11/21/2014 12:57:45 PM, by STODD251

    It's probably a combination of factors, but these last couple of days I have been ravenous. Which is not necessarily good if you're trying to lose weight. The other side could be it might be my body telling me that I need to eat more. I have recently started doing more exercise (as my muscles are at... Read more

  • Being an example, and a MOMMY

    11/21/2014 9:09:57 AM, by JENSTRESS

    My journey to motherhood was a heartbreaking, crazy, hilarious ride. It is amazing how I have my girl, and how much I LOVE her, but it was also the most amazing journey I've ever experienced. If you want to know why it was those things, ask me, but this isn't the blog about that. It is abou... Read more

    THey say the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. They are right. You have to put an effort in, before anything else happens.

    11/20/2014 8:01:07 AM, by WAYSOFGRACE

    Posture says a lot about a person, or so my mother used to tell me. A person who stands straight and tall is a person who is confident in themselves is what she would tell me. Remember trying to walk with a book balanced on your head? I couldn't do it, no matter how hard I tried. I was that kid ... Read more

    11/18/2014 8:00:52 AM, by WAYSOFGRACE

    I woke this morning to a text from my sister-in-law that my step-brother's ex wife had died. She wasn't very old, and she certainly wasn't in bad health that I was aware of. No one expected this, and we still don't know why. I was not especially close to her. I have a love-hate relationship ... Read more

  • Hit with a BRICK (I didn't need a ton, just one)

    11/17/2014 4:08:19 PM, by JENSTRESS

    I guess I needed a rest. I didn't FEEL like I needed one, but someone knocked me down for TWO DAYS! I've never understood the expression "like a ton of bricks" I'm pretty sure that one brick would be enough for me. I still have a little congestion, but I'm not going through tissues... Read more

    11/17/2014 2:08:20 PM, by WAYSOFGRACE

    Yesterday I couldn't stand my sciatic anymore, so I took a muscle relaxer. I hate taking them, but sometimes you need to just suck it up and deal, which is what I did. The downside to having done that is that I felt so much better I did things I probably shouldn't have done. I am becoming the def... Read more

    Yesterday was a milestone for me and I am still giddy about it! I walked to the YMCA, did my heavy chest and back workout, ran/jogged/sprinted on the treadmill, walked back from the YMCA, then ran around our basement room-when all was said and done, it was over 14 miles (14.23 to be precise).
