Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

So.. my husband and I watched a documentary the other night on Netflix.  Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.  Although I don't consider myself to be majorly obese, I do have weight on me. No matter what I do or how much I exercise I still carry more weight...

Where's My Supersuit?

I think I am just about the last person I know who hadn't seen "Frozen" yet, until today.  School was called off because of crazy cold weather and I asked my bestie to take me out for an adventure. Yes... very great movie.  I put it right under "The...

As the crutches go...

I will brag just for a moment, and hope you're okay with it.  I am walking without my crutches.  Four weeks and five days ago, I had hip surgery.  The surgeon arthroscopically repaired a torn labrum, performed a trochanteric bursectomy and performed a...

The sun is shining and the tank is clean!

Finding Nemo is by far one of my favorite movies.  The colors are stunning.  The dialogue between the characters is spot on and the portrayal of true friendship and a parent's love for their child does not go on deaf ears.   I would swim to the...

Decided to ditch the running shoes...

Three half marathons in less than a year.  Well, I set out to run a race and indeed I accomplished three.  Country Music Marathon, Brooksie Way and Disney Princess Half Marathon.  Check! Check! Check!   I can be a bit of a slow learner....

Running in the rain...

So I was finishing my first half marathon, in Nashville, in the rain.  As I ran, I prayed for a friend who was losing her battle with brain cancer.  Her name was Jenna and she was the same age as my younger son.  She was in 5th grade.  She had begun...

2014 It has to be better than 2013

Here I sit with the Word of God opened and a gentle reminder to me to "Look to The Lord and His strength; seek His face always."  Psalm 105:4 -This verse will be my verse for 2014. Not humility from James 4:10, to "Humble yourself before God...
