Bumps in the road. Life is filled with them. I can't control the bumps but I can control how I react to them. I was four-weeks in to my journey and I lost my spark while my pup was sick and was still moping around now that he's gone. I was k... Read more

That is the question. I was focused on my family during this last week of my beloved dog's life. It wasn't until after, alone with my thoughts, that I went off the rails and pretty much binged on everything. Why do I binge? I don't know - es... Read more

We said goodbye to the best dog a family could ask for yesterday. Our vet thought of our dog as a friend and cried right a long with us. He gave him some medicine to make him sleepy and he laid down with us getting love, hugs, kisses and treat... Read more

I hate the reason, but so happy that my daughter and boyfriend flew home so we all can be together. Yesterday was such a blessing. Hootie had all his favorites, pizza crust, peanut butter water with his food, turkey and cheese. He was happy, ... Read more

My gym is having a soft-opening today. 5 people, outside, 20 feet apart on a 90 degree day. I used to be a crossfitter in my before life. My coach asked me to create a google doc sign up sheet for the limited classes they are offering today. ... Read more

I thought my weekend went pretty well but the scale said otherwise. I stepped on this morning and saw .02 down. Bascially, no movement. The old me would have been so upset and been absorbed in self pity. Used it as an excuse to eat whatever is... Read more

Today, I feel great. I ordered a few "fat" summer items so I will have something to wear when the weather gets nice and they fit. I can't go shopping at store due to covid which actually turned out to be a blessing because facing a dressing r... Read more
