Aaaaand….GO! Hey, wait, what's that?
Did anyone notice I didn’t post last week? No one noticed, right? The problem was that last Wednesday night my body was preparing for an…event of sorts, one that happens PERIODICALLY, if you follow. But being clueless and somewhat prone to hormonal insanity, I was convinced that what was actually [...]
Not the actual doctor in my story.
This week, specifically because I attended an important mammogram appointment, I get to celebrate living another eight years, which is awesome.
I had cancer, and now I’m well. For the drama of the discovery and diagnosis, see the story at Gray James. And schedule a mammogram.
We all spend so [...]
I'm not exactly DIVING off the cliff, but I sure am LOOKING.
When we launched this latest challenge, I have to admit I had something of a heavy heart about it. I couldn’t think of anything interesting outside of my comfort zone. I toyed with the idea of taking dance lessons, but that’s not so [...]
What? You don't think I can be wise?
So here we are at the finish line for this first Full Plate challenge. At our last weigh- in I was 3.5 pounds away from victory, so I suppose I should sigh and confess that I haven’t won. However, I am the current champion in magical thinking, [...]
YOU! Not so much me, but definately YOU.

Okay, soooo. Remember that post last week about how I was NOT giving up and NOT giving in and I was all BACK ON THE HORSE and you could practically hear the Rocky theme playing? Was that just me, with the imaginary music?
Anyhow. I meant it, I swear I did. [...]
I just got off a plane a few hours ago and have staggered home and shoved my children in bed (full disclosure: my mother fed us dinner, thereby single handedly saving my family from death by mutual dismemberment and consumption). (Full disclosure part 2: I have also had a bath, thereby single handedly restoring a [...]
Coming Soon! Now with more Exclamation Points!
A thing that the Mayo Clinic Diet has that I like (besides its food pyramid based on PLANTS) is that it uses lists. I love lists. I make them and gleefully cross things off and they make me feel quite accomplished, organized, and virtuous. TMCD has three short [...]
(with thanks and apologies to Gary Larson)
I am one of the most bullheaded, obstinate people you could hope to meet. (Unless you’ve met my daughter, in which case… well, please pray for me.) I am a woman of strong opinions and stronger will. When I set my mind to something I do it.
But my [...]
