Independence Day – Hooorah!

Good googly - it's the 4th of July already? Most awesome. What better way to kick off my 48th trip around the sun than with pretty explosives? How about hitting my 10K step goal twice since the new month began? Or managing to drink ALL the water I'm supposed to have?  Now, granted, I've gone … Continue reading Independence Day – Hooorah!

I Don’t Know “Who” I AM

What is it about my birthday this year that has me doing all of this contemplation? I don't remember going through this when I turned 30, or 40, or 45...but man, looking 48 in the face and all of a sudden I'm questioning almost every aspect of my existence. The things I used to use … Continue reading I Don’t Know “Who” I AM

Birthday Month – Kick Off post

To all the other June birthday babies who may be reading - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Hope you get your Google b-day wishes...not sure how I feel about the personalized deal myself, but it was nice to have the date I entered recognized by the cyber-bots. Anyway, even though I put in a bogus date on my … Continue reading Birthday Month – Kick Off post

And so it begins…

Figured I'd pop in early on Day 1 and well, drop a few words.  Since I've already shared the "before" pics, might as well share the stats that go along with them: Age: 47 (soon to be 48) Height: 5' - 6.5" (I'm shrinking, lol.  I once stood a whole 5' - 7.75") Chest: 40" … Continue reading And so it begins…

I’ve been converted (a brief interlude).

I wasn't sure it could happen to me. And it makes me wonder now what else I've been missing out on because of some preconceived notions that were based on general hear-say, fears, and other uninformed sources. I'm talking about essential oils and their effectiveness. You may recall a few posts back I wondered about … Continue reading I’ve been converted (a brief interlude).


(*can’t believe I’m doing this.  I mean, really.  Like anyone wants to see my wildly out of shape body. But then again, I’ve shown you my balding head, not to mention the knot behind my ear.  Hell, I’ve shared all kinds of insecurities with the readers of this blog, why should this be any different.  … Continue reading TMI…maybe?

“Reflections of…the way life used to be”

Don't remember the name of the song I got the title of today's post from, just remember it being sung by Diana Ross. I wasn't ever a fan of her signing, but having grown up with audiophiles, there was a LOT of music played in my life; I was born in the late 60's so … Continue reading “Reflections of…the way life used to be”

That Awkward Stage – Mid Life, WTF -Part deux.

I'm in that awkward stage where I'm between sizes again. Happened to me when I was in junior high. Puberty hit me in the head and I was suddenly to big to fit clothes that were age appropriate - a.k.a. fashionable for kids my age. Consequently, I ended up wearing boys clothes a lot. I … Continue reading That Awkward Stage – Mid Life, WTF -Part deux.
