    Today I saw my cousin. I haven't seen him in 15 years. He's got a steady job, a wife, and three kids now. He's doing real good and I'm proud of the life he's carved out for himself but it also made me think about my life choices. I got up today knowing that I was going to see him and his new fa...

    Shout out to whomever screamed at 9 PM because now I am wide awake even though I went to bed two freaking hours early to overcome the fact that I have trouble sleeping on Sunday nights.

I ate chicken salad for lunch two days for lunch this week. I limited my peanut and butter to a half a sandwich.... Read more

    Without meaning to sound uncharitable I have never understood the attraction to NFL football in MY side of the border, It's not as though we don't have professional football up here yet it seems every year the various broadcasters make a HUGE fuss over "your" football even pre Grey Cup up here.

    Here we are. Day 1. I haven't weighed myself yet because I am not ready to face the number. All I know is that, once again this year, I've had to buy bigger pants.

  • Nothing is impossible . . .

    2/7/2016 8:33:02 PM, by MISSLAURIEW

    Audrey Hepburn said, "Nothing is impossible; the word itself says I'm possible." Okay. So changing one's lifestyle to healthy living is not an impossible task. However, that doesn't mean it's easy. I think it must begin with positive self-talk. The words we silently say to ourselves are what w... Read more
