I recently started making green smoothies. Usually I make a big one for myself and pour a little in separate cups to share with my boys. So far they have enjoyed them but are a little suspect about the color. They have seen me make them and k... Read more

I am tired. I am frustrated. I need a break. Sometimes my head gets of so full of things I want to do, things I need to do, things I have to do that I can't focus on anything. I feel that I am there now. It is a hard place to be and... Read more

Out of the Habit

It amazes me how easy it is to get out of the habit of regular exercise. I went out of town for a week and while I did some walking while I was gone, the intensity of my exercise was not near as high as before. I also developed a chronic cough... Read more

I started the C25K program and have stuck with it. I am currently in week 8 and I don't feel like I am a runner. If someone were to ask me if I was a runner I would say, "Me, no way. I never run, I stand and fight." I just don't see myself ... Read more

I feel good today. I woke up early this morning, before the sun rose. The house was quiet and I sat there, in the dark and drank in the silence. Not really silence but morning sounds: birds singing, refrigerator humming, ceiling fan chiming... Read more
