  • I Want to Start A Blog

  • Lilly's visit to her school (pics)

    8/27/2016 5:03:46 AM, by PURPLE0906

    I can't believe Lilly will be going into kindergarten starting Monday. I can still remember the day she was born.

  • A tad frustrated

    8/25/2016 3:26:01 PM, by BETHUMZ

    First, I did lose a pound. Second, it took me two weeks of doing everything right; logging my food, staying on the low end of my plan, exercising in the pool. Third, it was only a pound... I was hoping for a little more. *sigh* Yes, I'm 51, I'm in Peri-menopause, I'm missing half of my thy... Read more

  • Are You Getting Enough ME Time?

    8/23/2016 9:39:59 AM, by 2BDYNAMIC

    Is ME time something we put on the 'back burner' .... while we postpone quiet moments of sheer solitude away from noise and busyness for later? .... Maybe something we will get 'when we retire' ..... Who knows ... I remember the earliest years........Kindergarten, where "time-outs" were ... Read more

    8/12/2016 6:31:29 AM, by 2BDYNAMIC

    Which do you think is the wiser approach to fitness? Consistency in balancing exercise and eating healthy or pressuring ourselves to 'get to our goals at break neck speeds? I remember the day my dad took me out for a driving lesson. In heavy traffic. He sat quietly in the passenger s... Read more

  • I got back on the horse... I mean scale

    8/10/2016 3:50:31 PM, by BETHUMZ

    I have to go to the doctor tomorrow and she's going to weigh me but I don't trust that scale - it once told me I weighed 10 pounds less than I knew I actually weighed. I didn't even get to enjoy the lie because I'd weighed myself just the day before, so I knew it was wrong. *sigh* So, I weighed... Read more

    8/9/2016 3:39:07 PM, by BETHUMZ

    They are serious about these babies. You soak them in water and put them in your bra under your girls and they are meant to keep you cool on really hot days or during hot flashes or if you work in sweltering conditions. Have you ever seen or used cooling towels? Same principle. Anyway, I th... Read more

    8/7/2016 10:09:32 PM, by HMATTAX

    I am having results on the Nutriststen program and I am getting to like not having to cook when I am tired. But I am missing real food. I have found a compromise.
