Mom, We Love What’s for Dinner

I am happy to report that my experiment with menu planning went really well! For the most part, I stuck to the menu as stated (you can see pictures of the meals here). The only two times I veered off course were Monday (forgot to make the steamed broccoli but […]

I Did It!

I finished the EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge this morning and I am so proud of myself. The last time I stuck with an exercise program for longer than a week was when I joined the Army (and that was a long time ago). When I started this challenge, […]

Mom, What’s for Dinner?

That’s the first thing my kids ask me when they walk through the door at the end of a long school day. Sometimes they even ask me that question as I’m driving them to the bus stop in the morning. I used to just mutter something along the lines of […]

I’m Rocking the Red Pump

I heart shoes. In fact, I’d say there’s nothing better than a great pair shoes except maybe a stunning handbag or a funky piece jewelry. But what good is all of that if you don’t have your health? Did you know that every 35 minutes a woman tests positive for […]

Sometimes a Fly is Just a Fly

Truthful Tuesday

Have you ever heard a song on the radio and thought ohmygosh, I can totally feel what she’s singing about? I have. I mean, there have been times when I’ve heard a voice or listened to the words of a song and they’ve reached down so deep within me that […]

Day 10: New Year, New Me

Today was a day of rest. I think I earned it, don’t you? That doesn’t mean that I totally slacked off though, I did a modified work out ~ 10 minutes on the Weider Stepper. I did it less for the exercise and more for the *umph* to keep motivated. […]

Flashback Fridays

It’s funny that I stumbled across this post this morning because I was just talking to the kids about my dad earlier this week. My dad was wonderful! I know every girl thinks her dad is the best, but my dad really was. When we were little my dad and […]
