Wins & Losses + {Home, the Perfect Nest}

Janetha called it lazy, but I (& the other 433+ readers of her blog) called her recent Wins & Losses blog post super fun and creative!  She's also the clever gal that came up with the "Get to know the blogger" survey in this past post.  Anywho, in the spirit of her blog post, I will start out with a recent win. ...

Weekly Weigh-In #4 + Things my dad taught me

Awwww, my dad.  You may have "met" him in my Important Things in life post from last week.  But what you don't know is that he has always been a great encourager in my life, always knowing just the right thing to say at just the right moment.  I am soooo thankful for him!  (Aren't we cute in this pic from Christmas?) ...

My office is trying to kill me! (Or at least keep me fat)

I don't know about you, but for me one of the worst places for healthy eating is often the office:  the exact place where one SITS for literally 8 hours a day.  I guess it's often called a "perk"... ... Read more » about My office is trying to kill me! (Or at least keep me fat)

JointheReboot + Italian Polenta

Well first of all, I must say, I have been overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness at the response to my recent guest blog post on the "Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead" website.  You can read the full post here.   This has been quite the journey with many celebrations and mini-milestones along the way, but I must say that this moment has been the best yet.  To actually feel like an ...
