This morning when I was riding to work, I had a close call with the law and I'm STILL nervous and a little shakey inside as a result. Throughout Tucson, there are some streets that seem to have an endless amount of stop lights on them and... Read more

Tuesday, April 29, 2008 Today was my first day getting my bike back and riding it to work. I admit, I'm still a new rider and SCARED to death to be out riding in public, but I figure, my commute to work has all the stops, turns and starts ... Read more
Scared, desperate and excited...all at once
Thursday, April 24, 2008      2 comments

For about a year now, I've had a motorcycle I didn't know what to do with. The rising cost of gas has began to make me a tad bit desperate to figure it out but I'm just too scared to get on it. It's a 2005 Kawasaki Ninja and to me, these bikes... Read more

Today my day was not as good as I'd hoped it would be. But compared to my past few weeks, it was tolerable. The car had to go into the shop, my daughter went to Phoenix and didn't get the job she wanted, my other daughter's gas tank is on empt... Read more

Well, it's been a couple of months since my youngest left the nest and I just can't believe the strength that Christ has given me to get through this. I'm actually enjoying myself. For those of you who prayed for me, THANK YOU! I know my King... Read more

Ok, so I had this great idea that I'm still not sure if it was a brain storm or a brain fart. You be the judge. I wanted to get a 2nd job. One that would allow me to be physically active, and yet have flexible hours so as to not interfere... Read more
Christians, WAKE UP!!

I recently went through a dry spell where I wasn't losing (or gaining) and I thought I was going through a plateau. Maybe I was, I don't know. But one day as I was praying about it, I remembered a dream I had that woke me up, spiritually, to a... Read more

Wow, I can't believe the journey I've just taken. This past year has been a journey of a lifetime. In my lifetime, I've gone to Disney land, Cayman Islands, various states in the country but none of them come close to this weight loss journey... Read more

I was doing so well. I really was. I had 2 days this past week where I burned 895 and 950 calories. And my will-power to stave off the temptation to over eat ws really strong. Then on Tuesday I didn't get the sleep I wanted to get and I cave... Read more

I had a dream last night that turned into a nightmare. The dream was separated into 3 sections so it could easily have been 3 dreams except for the first two were connected by a particular person and the last two were connected by a particular ... Read more
