I’m part of a 60 Day Challenge for my gym during May and June, and last week I ran across the following post on a favourite author’s page on Instagram: So I got my philosophical cap on and posted to the Facebook page for my local challenge. Obviously it resonated with some people. Not only…… Continue reading Finding your why
I’ve not had a lot to post about lately. Or maybe, more accurately, I haven’t had a lot that I’ve felt proud of lately which I would want to post about. I like presenting the good to the world usually, and while I have certainly mentioned some less stellar things about weight loss surgery in…… Continue reading Fitness Ruts & Health Nuts

This is one of my favorite sayings. Also, I need that sweatshirt. Also, I embodied this today pretty completely. I went to the gym–bright and early even (well, not bright. It’s not bright at 6:30am in January in the N. Hemisphere)–and then the eating happened. Oh, so much eating happened. I’ve been damned lucky. Almost…… Continue reading Cupcakes and No Pants Style Balance
