I am feeling pretty secure in my delve into all things intermittent fasting (IF). I will weigh in one day early this week to make sure progress is happening. I had lost 10.4 pounds total the last time I weighed in. I have stayed consistent with my eating window from 11-3 each day; except one…

It has been an odd week. I have toed the line well with eating – both what and when. I have continued to weigh daily, and the entire week, I have circled around the exact same number as last week’s weigh in?? I have no idea why? I will admit to a level of frustration?…

As the new year begins, I spent time the other day looking at progress made in lots of areas in 2020. I set out to live minimally in 2020 and to eliminate single-use plastic to a great degree. I engaged in the minimalist game at the start of 2020, getting rid of 495 items in…

The new year is off to a good start and I have been loving being at home. I need to remember to take days off in early 2022 so I can enjoy the same thing. I have six and a half days off when you put the holiday, the weekend, and the regular work schedule…

Well, here it is, post New Year’s Day. As far as bedtime went Thursday night, it was no where near the preferred midnight. I made it to 9pm!! If I was at all confident that I would succeed at sleeping in, I might have worked harder at the whole staying awake thing? But since I…

I sit here, in the middle of Christmas weekend, relaxing for some time. I did some gift opening yesterday, some gift giving, some Zoom calling with my kids, some cleaning up, some laughing. I cooked a steak dinner, which is a super out-of-the-ordinary meal for me. It’s was a definite treat. And I do not…

In the recent weeks, this blog keeps calling to me, every single day. I sit down, open the page…and sometimes I just stare at a blank page and think; sometimes I have things I want written down. I declared at the start of this blog some years ago that I would not be writing for…

So much has happened in the last days. After a lot of talk about closing things down in the state, it did indeed happen. At midnight Friday night, all restaurants closed to indoor dining, as well as restrictions on all indoor gatherings, except religious organizations, which are exempt?? As a person who believes completely in…

It’s a chilly day in December. But it is the weekend and I will take any kind of day as long as it is the weekend!! Typical winter temps; a bit windy; some sleety precipitation earlier. The sun has chosen to hide today and I have visions of Christmas and of winter beginning to take…

“For I will restore you to health, and I will heal you of your wounds,” declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17) In the past, I have always struggled to determine a focus for the year ahead. I have always questioned how involved God was in the choosing process of my word and verse. It is so…
