Summer thus far…

It's already past the 4th which means the rest of the summer will fly, but really we have about 7 more weeks before back to school (not that I'm off of course). We took a mini vacay to NH for the 4th. I love NH in the summer, not a fan of the snow. We…

Post Mother’s Day

The weekend was good. Saturday was the better day. It was sunny, a slight breeze and about 70 degrees. I wanted a picnic for mothers day. So we packed up sandwiches, snacks and drove to a woodsy park not many people frequent. It was great, we had the place to ourselves. We played some sports,…

Emotional

Feeling super emotional and stressed. I am letting little things get to me and I can't seem to shake them off. It is silly stuff too that in the long run will not matter. We're doing a birthday party for my daughter's 8th birthday. I am worried that no one will come and she'll be…

Spring check in

Finally getting warm out and we're done with winter, at least where I am, sorry mid west. I've lost 15 pounds since January. I feel so good abot myself. I haven't been this weight in about 9 years. I still have 15 more to go. I've been going to the gym the last three weeks.…

Sober Birthday

Today is my day, 1095 of them to be exact. I can't believe it's been three years. I'm proud of myself. Today was a good day. It snowed over a foot last night and school was cancelled. I was able to work from home to be with my daughter. I actually did work so I…

Weighing in

It's been three weeks on this somewhat low carb diet, I've lost about 5 pounds. That's a start, I don't know what I was expecting to lose 30 pounds in three weeks- impossible unless this is an infomercial. This is freaking hard. I've had basically no fruit, zero grains and no starchy veggies like potato…

Goals

2018 was really a good year. I got outside my comfort zone and took two classes- sewing and pottery, which helped revamp my creativity. I have another pottery class starting in a couple weeks and I'm still sewing. My goal this year is to keep up with the creative outlets and push to make healthier…

Christmas Blues

I'm not feeling very merry, super stressed and overwhelmed. I was so ahead of the game in early November with the majority of gifts done but chaos ensued this week with running around getting gifts for all my co workers. I honestly feel it's pointless. Do they need more slippers, body lotion, chocolates, coffee or…
