What are we encouraging?

Neither 'fit shaming' nor 'fat shaming' are acceptable. Neither woman pictured is, 'gross'. The woman on the left could be just as addicted to exercise as the woman on the right could be to food. One thing is certain, however... I am much less concerned about the woman on the left developing chronic and long … Continue reading What are we encouraging?

Ummm… NO

I have weight trained 3x per week for the last 2 weeks. This week I bought a stationery bike to help burn calories and bring down that darn scale. I weighed myself this morning and...  I HAVE GAINED WEIGHT!!! So many swear words, so little time. I know I used for-realsie weights and not invisible … Continue reading Ummm… NO

Something is wrong with my family tree

I was at my aunt's 70th birthday on Sunday. My sister, bil, husband and I all rode up in my sister's suv. The back of which was packed with tables, chairs, food, and drink.

Most doctors … Continue reading Paleo, cancer, and forgiveness

He breaks the previous record held by Ronald Reagan who was 69 years old when he was sworn into office in 1981.

Why, ‘flyover’ states matter

Aw, 'lamestream' media is pouting because, Trump won the election. They can't understand how we pesky salt-of-the-earth types managed to find our way to the polls and vote- what with us all being so 'ignant' and under educated and stuff.

Are you positively negative?

Are your words of, 'inspiration' like this?   Or are they more like this?   The first message is negative. Yes, it could be looked at as funny... in a self sabotaging and depreciating manner. You're telling yourself that you are beyond the capacity of self management and basically in need of a babysitter. Are … Continue reading Are you positively negative?
