I just wanted to tell you all that I did the shred video on Saturday (level 2) and then did my first run/walk since before New Years and today, I'm feeling the burn.

It's a good burn and it's a burn that I need to feel more of. I just wanted to let you know that I'm doing more and trying to be more active. I can't help but not be when it's so freaking nice outside! Seriously, the sunshine makes a WORLD of a difference.

I'm planning on going again today during lunch.  Running is a lot harder than I remember but I'm looking forward to it feeling a little better than what it did on Sunday.

My husband and I are celebrating our 6th year anniversary on the 20th and we were hoping to run a 5k together.  After yesterday, that might be harder than I remember but I'm going to give it a try.

Anyway, just wanted to say that I'm loving the burn....

Good for you! It is so hard to get back into the swing of things when you've been out of it for even a little while...

Way to go! I have the 30 Day Shred video. I was doing really well with doing it 4 -5 times a week. Then, we moved. I don't think it's come out of the case! I need to get back on it so I can feel the burn, too! Good luck on the 5k!
What a great idea for your anniversary!!! Good luck girl!

I just started back up on the 30 day shred this week and I am feeling the burn too - I did it last summer for about a month and lost 7 pounds - it is hard to do it every single day - especially when your muscles hurt - but it is worth it because it works.

Way to get back in the game.

Happy Anniversary.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
