Good morning! I had a very productive day yesterday. I worked out, I had tons of energy, and I put a game plan in place for meeting my 2020 goals. And then today I woke up feeling really sad and anxious. The fires in Australia are just heartbreaking. All of the animals that are dying. … Continue reading Game Plan
Winter. Is. Coming. Yes, I know, it’s only October and the fall season is here. But with frost warnings and snow hitting nearby states, it’s only a matter of time. Winters here in Iowa are brutal. Lots of snow, ice, and frigid temperatures. It makes me want to act like a bear and hibernate, so… Continue reading Winter game plan
Good morning! Does anyone else’s dogs get them up at the crack of dawn? I feel like a mother of young children again. I can’t even remember the last time I got to sleep in. It’s no wonder that I’m ready to go to bed before 10:00, even on the weekends. Our routine here at… Continue reading What’s up? 9/14/19

Hello and happy Monday! I was just telling someone that I’m tired today, but I seem to be tired most Mondays because I play hard on the weekends! This morning I woke expecting to not only feel tired, but I figured I’d feel sore as well. Yesterday I helped my youngest daughter and her fiancé… Continue reading Monday Musings: Health
I have a birthday coming up soon and it seems as though I get a bit more philosophical around my birthdays, especially the older I get. After all, the older I get, the more my mortality becomes more inevitable. I don’t want to get all morbid and tell you that I think about my pending… Continue reading Torn
As you know, my husband and I started working out at a gym last November. David has been doing great; he has lost close to 30 pounds and we had to go shopping last weekend because all of his clothes are too big. As happy as I am for him, I found myself being a… Continue reading F*ck you, scale!
I’ve been absent for a bit. I haven’t been inspired to write anything, and nothing exciting is going on. I don’t want to bore people with my normal routine of work, exercise, and what I’m eating. This morning, however, I saw this clip of Ricky Gervais on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and it… Continue reading I love food….and wine.
