In Which The Bride-To-Be Comes Home

Diary of a Wedding

These past two weeks have been two of the busiest, most stressful weeks of my life. All good, though! My little girl got married last Saturday and we couldn’t be happier. But let me back up just a little. I realize it’s been five months since I wrote my last post. The post that informed…

Good Things, Man

  Oh my, but it’s been two-and-a-half months since my last post. I’m sure that is a great disappointment to my reader. Or readers. I think I have two, now. I have many things to tell you! 2017 is looking very promising with an awful lot to look forward to. Today I’m just going to…

Challenge Completed

Twenty-one days are done and the challenge is over. I had hoped to finish strong, but Katie was home for the weekend and we went to dinner to celebrate Taylor’s new job and I wasn’t able to do my workouts because Katie brought a friend home and I didn’t want to be caught exercising by…

I’m On Fire

Good gracious, Gertrude! I burn everywhere. There was a t-shirt on Facebook that said, “Everything Hurts And I’m Dying.” No inspirational quote has ever captured my truth better. Just to give you an idea of what my head is going through while my body is being tortured, here are more journal excerpts from the last…

Cooking With Grease Now

Well actually, I’m cooking with extra virgin olive oil, but that doesn’t have the same ring. Before I get going on this post, let me state for the record I am NOT a trained cook. I just play one on my blog. I’ve been so enamored with my breakfast this week that I decided to share…

I’m Still Standing

Today is the fourth day of my 21 day challenge. So far I have eaten well and exercised my 30 minutes every day. The best news of all is that I can still walk. Yesterday was 30 minutes of lower body exercises and I really despaired that I wouldn’t make it down the stairs this…

It’s Only 21 Days

I’ve spent all morning working on a meal plan for next week and preparing the grocery list. Which means I need to go to the grocery store. Which is probably why I’m writing this because y’all know how much I love the grocery store. (And if you don’t, then let me explain. That was sarcasm.…

Let’s Do This!

You see, it’s like this. Todd and I have been talking about getting healthy for a while. Last year I did Weight Watchers for a bit and was fairly successful for the time I was actually on the plan. Once I fell off the wagon, however, I just laid there and watched it roll away.…

This Week in Review

No, I have not received my new computer yet. No, I am not typing this on my phone. I’ve hijacked Katie’s computer until I get my new one next week. Shhh. I have a full plate today, but thought I might throw a few words up on the page while I have a minute or…

Weighty Matters

Way back in November I finally decided I’d had enough. Enough of wearing a size much-too-large. Enough of feeling sluggish and uncomfortable. Enough of self-loathing every time I actually looked in the mirror, not just quickly glanced. And photographs of myself? Fuhgetaboutit. So I joined Weight Watchers. A few years ago I joined to shed…
