I remember using the word "virtually" like that when I was younger. But we use that word so differently now, don't we? Especially in my job, where I work virtually. We have "virtual" workers and "on site" workers. We have "virtual" meetings, etc... Read more

Enjoy the Journey
Sunday, August 28, 2016      3 comments

I bought a little turtle on my birthday that states, "Enjoy the journey." I move at a slow pace. I gained before I started to lose again. I joined WW again. I lose then gain, then gain, then lose again. I get down, then back up. And the most imp... Read more

My step-dad used to always say, "Move it or lose it!" I guess it just meant "Get out of the way." I am really needing to get more exercise in my day... Read more

Harder than it seems
