As I do each year, I am putting 2020 to rest by taking that SparkPage Introduction and making it a blog and then making a new introduction. 2020 wasn’t a bad year for me. It wasn’t perfect and life happened but it was not better or worse t... Read more

I've been having issues with my shoulder for almost a year. A couple weeks ago I went to get an MRI; all the physical therapy I was doing wasn't really making any progress on the pain. I found out I have a tear in two places and that it is som... Read more

Today was a good day! Hot and I loved it. A bit odd for Wisconsin to have this weather in May but 90 feels like 100 with a ton of humidity is better than anything under 60. I don't really have anything to say today but to encourage every... Read more

I changed jobs this month. It's been almost 2 weeks at my new job and I can feel the stress draining from my mind and my body. My last job lasted a little over three years and started off really good. For about 8 months I loved it. But then ... Read more

Yesterday I recommitted to my physical well being while continuing to also work on the emotional. They all work together anyhow. My biggest focus is my nutrition. I've been doing a lot of emotional eating but it's time to handle my emotions in... Read more
Never Give Up
Saturday, November 11, 2017      5 comments

A few years ago I was dealing with some very emotional issues that I am still recovering from today. I don't feel like I am a strong person but both of my girls have told me I am the strongest person they know. To them, if I wasn't I would not... Read more
Dilema maybe?

This year I am turning 50. Seems kinda crazy. I look in the mirror and I don't see 50. I don't feel 50. And yet, I am excited to turn 50. I told my daughters and my husband I want a big birthday bash. But, my birthday is only 3 days before... Read more

Life is hard! I don't say that as a complaint but more of an observation and really a realization. This is, to a degree, encouraging. I don't know about anyone else but I always felt like life was easier to navigate and the reason I may be hav... Read more

The last 8 weeks of working out consistently have been great! I am done letting life's challenges interfere with how we want our life to look. In the past I would get so busy that I would always put my needs on the back burner. I love working ... Read more

I've been looking at my old blogs from when I first started using SparkPeople. I'm happy about how far I have come. Since 2007 I have become more fit, more patient, more able to deal with stress, stronger, happier, more chill, to name a few. ... Read more
Christmas is over - Back to the routine & 2017 goals
Monday, December 26, 2016      3 comments

We made it through Christmas without going overboard. Well, almost anyhow. We did eat out more often than we planned but it's so much fun hanging out and spending time together. The good thing is we ate well, the bad thing is we went over on t... Read more
