Family - Day 6 - #WordADayChallenge

Today's word is Family

One of the first things that pops into my head when I think of this word is how much I treasure it. The second thing is how utterly complicated it can be.

Determination - Day 4 - #WordADayChallenge

Today's word is Determination

I find it almost comical that a word that hold so much promise, begins with the word deter because a determined person is not usually detered!

Compassion - Day 3 #WordADayChallenge

Today's word is Compassion

This is something I strive to find more of in myself. I sometimes struggle with compassion when it bumps into reality.

Bravery - Day 2 - #WordADayChallenge

The word for today is Bravery. 

I admire bravery. Not to be confused with a hero. There are definite heroes in this word, but bravery comes in many forms. When I see someone staring down cancer, man, that's bravery. When I think of our Service members, that's bravery. To see someone that strives to be better, do better that's bravery. I think there are untold stories of bravery all around us that we might not notice in the hustle and bustle of our lives.

Word A Day Blog Challenge - Day 1 - Acceptance

Acceptance. This word means quite a lot to me at the moment. I am in the midst of changing myself. I had let my acceptance of my own self-loathing invade my soul. I was still happy on the outside, but when I looked in the mirror, it was the inner negativity I saw staring back. I no longer want to accept that. I have been fortunate to be chosen to review a meal plan program and it has made a world of difference in a very short time. It has kickstarted a fire inside.

Week 1 - #PersonalTrainerFood


My first week has started off great. I had my first breakfast on Sunday (1/24) morning. I withstood fixing waffles for my guys and then got my first taste of the food that Personal Trainer Food had sent. I had an egg and two sausages. And they tasted really good! I added a pinch of salt to the egg, but nothing else. After fasting, I thought I would be starving like mad, but surprisingly, I didn't shove it in whole and scarf it down like a wildabeast!

30 Years Ago Today - Space Shuttle Challenger

Challenger Lifting Off

Thirty years ago today. A lifetime ago. I was in the 8th grade. I remember being so excited. My science teacher had applied and made it through a lot of the selection process before finally being eliminated and Christa McAuliffe was selected to be the first teacher in space. It was an ambitious goal to say the least. Sending a civilian to space.

Starting a Journey - Personal Trainer Food


I am starting a 28 day journey. It's one that admittedly makes me nervous. Weight loss. This wasn't part of any New Year's resolution I made to myself, but the opportunity presented itself to review the Personal Trainer Food program. I have been wanting to make a change but I was so overwhelmed. I didn't know where to start. I am nervous. I have never done any program like this. I'm nervous and very self-conscience about sharing it.

Glass Vase Angels

I saw a photo of an angel made with a glass vase floating around Facebook during the holidays and wanted to try to make one for my Mother-in-Law for Christmas. I found out that trying to find glass dishes at DollarTree during the holidays can be a challenge!
