Health As More Than Appearances

Posted by: | April 19, 2011

My Director, Michelle, was kind enough to take this beautiful picture of me last Wednesday, at a potluck in our office. In case you can’t tell: I am devouring a heaping plate of sherbert, with a few cookies and a handful of easter eggs.  It was delicious, in case you were wondering. We were laughing at my eating […]

Bike & Bike & Bike (First Week of 30 Days of Biking)

Posted by: | April 8, 2011

I wasn’t feeling too well this past week. I even had to sleep away most of Tuesday, instead of coming to work. So my first week of the 30 Days of Biking was challenging.  I had to convince myself to get on my bike most of the week.  Every day I was on my bike […]

30 Days of Biking

Posted by: | March 31, 2011

Due to my friendly tweeple (Twitter people that I follow and some that I even know in real life), I found out about the 30 days of Biking challenge.  I had heard of the 30 Days of Yoga challenge around town, but this is the first time I had thought about what it would mean […]

Quit the Whining and Start Living (please)

Posted by: | March 29, 2011

I was speaking with a friend today whom I greatly admire.  I mentioned that I try to document my life as much as possible with pictures so that I can brag about my adventures to others.  It’s true in a lot of ways  despite the fact that I know that it’s rather vain. Isn’t that what […]

Control Over Our Health

Posted by: | February 9, 2011

I am so glad that my friend has made it to being 33 years old.  Especially since just over a year ago, he had a stroke (let’s call him Brian).  Over a year later, I am still rummaging through my mind for anything that I could have missed as a warning sign.  I keep thinking […]

A Case of the Lunchies

Posted by: | January 26, 2011

So I’ve been working hard to bring lunch to work lately (to be more fiscally responsible and to be healthier), and I found myself dreading the thought on Monday of having to munch on my “Oh So Healthy Salad” (see recipe below).  After the first bite  though, I realized that it’s not really my “Oh So […]

Change: Give Me Some Good Attitude

Posted by: | January 18, 2011

“We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.”  Charles Swindoll You may or may not have heard about the fact that we’re […]

Where is Home for You?

Posted by: | January 13, 2011

I have returned from Mexico and I feel as though I just lived an entire lifetime there.  I met so many new friends, had so many new adventures and can’t believe I was only there for a little under two weeks.  While it was hard to leave so much sunshine and relaxation (and friends and […]

Loss and Grief

Posted by: | December 15, 2010

A few weeks ago, I invited my friend Glenn to come to a potluck at my house, and he said cheerfully, “Well, I will as long as I’ve gotten rid of this cold by then.”  I laughed and reassured him that he would be better in time. Glenn’s sister called me this past Sunday to let […]
