    I have discovered a better balance for myself in regards to fitness. I have realized that I was not doing enough strength training as I should be, especially since I am not exactly super young anymore. I am following a book written by some well respected trainers within the fitness realm. The boo... Read more

  • Can't seem to get started

    7/15/2014 1:08:48 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    Today I'm feeling very sloth-ish. I know. It's not a word. But I'm sure you know what I mean. On Saturday and Sunday, I started moving again. Walking mainly. Some running. But moving. I also started to track every bite of food. Yesterday it all fell apart. TOM has been difficult fo... Read more

    I've been home from vacation for a week and I'm just beginning to get back into some sort of routine. For starters, the morning after we got home my laptop messed up after my virus protection ran an update. It was a few days before Jeremy (my son) got it fixed for me. (Thank goodness my child is ...

  • "Too skinny"

    7/15/2014 8:48:04 AM, by OHSOSVELTE

    That phrase, "too skinny" and the thought that other people will someday actually say that to me is my motivation for today, this week, this year, forever. Yes, motivation should come from within, and it does, but, as this entire website proves, comments from others can really take you soaring,... Read more

  • July 2015 - Wild Toddler

    7/15/2014 12:19:56 AM, by NIELSENSLADY

    I think I like giving my monthly blog a theme that represents what I'm going through and Wild Toddler is it. I'm not too fond of this age I admit. He seems to be needy all day long and discipline does not seem to help all that much. He's only compliant when he wants to be it seems. He starts sch... Read more
