I’ve been a huge fan of Bob Harper for several years now since I started watching the show “The Biggest Loser.” I love his ability to motivate people and he’s such a kind, compassionate person. I’ve been working out with his DVDs for a couple of years, but I always do the beginner workouts. The… Continue reading Working out with Bob Harper
It was another busy weekend, but I had so much fun! We got together with friends both Friday and Saturday night, and it was our youngest daughter’s senior prom on Saturday night. Lots of laughs (and a few tears during prom pictures). I also ate and drank quite a bit, so on Sunday I was… Continue reading The best kind of run
Wow, it has been a crazy week, but lots of good things have been happening. It started with getting my monthly Vegan Cuts Snack Box in the mail: If you’re not familiar with the Vegan Cuts Snack Box, it’s a monthly subscription of a variety of vegan snacks that you receive every month. My husband… Continue reading Wow, what a week!
Today my oldest daughter turns 21. I’m not sure where the time went, but it was seriously just a week ago that I gave birth to her, and it was just a few short days ago that I was sobbing as I put her on the school bus on her first day of school. As I… Continue reading I don’t think I’m old enough to have a 21-year-old child.
It has been a great weekend. It started out on Friday night, when I came home after work and did a 4-mile run. Then yesterday, after doing some chores around the house, our family spent the afternoon sitting outside on our back patio, soaking in the warm sun. One of my favorite things to do… Continue reading Evaluating my priorities

And let me tell you, I’ve had many days, even months and years, when I felt uninspired. I was… Continue reading What inspires you?
Yesterday was a busy day! My husband and I are working on projects around the house, getting prepared for our youngest daughter’s graduation party in about six weeks. Yesterday my project was cleaning out some cupboards in the kitchen and reorganizing things so that it doesn’t look so cluttered. I took some before photos, but… Continue reading A Productive Sunday
Yesterday was a gorgeous day! Although I had plans to do some stuff around the house, the outdoors was calling me and so I headed outside for a run! By the way, I wish I was better at taking selfies! I envy those who always look cute in their selfies. I always feel awkward when… Continue reading Awesome running day!
My new running shoes came yesterday! I got the Brooks Ghost. Aren’t they cool? All of my running shoes have been Brooks. They have all been comfortable, dependable shoes, and so I figure, why change a good thing? And so I continue to buy this brand. These are my first pair of Ghosts. The reviews… Continue reading Happy!
I used to be creative. I used to be a bit artistic. I used to be optimistic and positive, and I thought the best of everyone I knew and met. I was a vegetarian. I don’t know what really happened to that version of myself. It just faded over the years. Life became about taking… Continue reading I found me again!
