  • Matthew 6:5

    "And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full." This quote has been on my mind for a few w...

  • Weight..is kinda like makeup

    For a long time I never wore makeup.  Why? I liked to face the world in my natural state because that way I always knew there was unlocked potential. I knew I could be prettier - but if I wore makeup and dressed up and did my hair and yadda yadda yad...

  • Confession

    I was afraid to share this with my MFP community because I have seen the forums crucify people and tear them down when they do something that is against what MFP values (slow, healthy weight loss). I tried the 3-day Military Diet. It toots up to 10 l...

  • I'm not ashamed, and this is great!

    A few years ago, when my ex and I first separated, he had made it a point of putting down my active lifestyle (boxing and running) to the girls - implying that mommy would rather run than be with them, etc.  As a result, I instantly pulled away from ...

  • NSV - To Browns or Not to Browns

    I started back on MFP in earnest about a week ago.  TWO weeks ago to the day, I went to one of my favorite breakfast places-- Harry's on Tuam-- and ordered one of my favorite breakfasts.  A 3-egg corned beef omelette with cheese, green peppers, onion...

  • The oncoming storm...

    So we're coming upon that season where the only thing more massive than the influx of resolutioners in the gym, is the glut of complaints about the influx of resolutioners in the gym.I'll admit it. I used to be one of the complainers. My first gym wa...

  • Victory!

    For about 16 months, I've gone to the gym after work.  For about 15 months, several times a week, I'd ask #2 daughter if she wanted to feel my biceps (not because there was anything to feel but because it annoyed her and annoying her is fun).   I'd r...

  • The most wonderful time of the year.....? \m/

    I've truly grown to hate this time of year.  Before it would be all about the SADs (seasonal affective disorder) thinking that not having enough light was my problem....or not enough vitamin D....or something to that tune.  In some ways it is, but in...

  • The fight

    Love me or hate me I am who I am. The reality is I may never change. No matter my faults, and I readily admit, I have many I will always love myself. One thing that I continue to do every so often is reflect on who I am, where I have been and wher...

  • There’s No Place Like Home

    I hate to admit it but it was a dreary morning in Mississippi today.  It was overcast, 45F and rainy.  Icky. But seeing as I’m doing this Holiday Running Streak, I headed on out the door for some miles.  10 miles to be exact. It was my initial plan t...

    I needed to phone SIL this morning. MIL dearly loves Lemon Meringue Pie from The Machine Shed Restaurant in Des Moines, Iowa.  I mean, she really, really loves this pie!  Seeing as I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what to get MIL for Christma...

  • Assorted Thoughts, Musings, and Ramblings: 2014 in a Nutshell and 2015 Preamble

    Tis the season to reflect and be thankful... or so I hear. Originally I was going to post my reflection of 2014, but after writing it out and re-reading it, it was a very "Look at me! Look at me! Look at me!" type blog. It was too reflective. Sure, 2...

  • 2014 All About That PR

    2014 was a pretty damn good year, all things considered.  I tend to be a little hard on myself when I don't exceed my own expectations and fall short of my goals but when I look at the numbers I don't think I really have anything to be too upset abou...

    Bad advice? I don't think so. I know a lot of us came here because we either put on a couple pounds that we didn't want anymore or we have been over weight our entire lives....basically something to do with our weight. It really doesn't matter why yo...

  • MFP doesn't work...

    ......unless you do.   Too many people log onto MFP every day and then sit back and wait for the magic to happen.  Sorry, it doesn't work that way.  You have to be the one to do the work.  You have to be diligent about making good food choices.  You...
