There's No Homerun In Football

I have never been a football fan. If my husband wanted to watch his favorite college team – the Auburn Tigers – then he had to go to his dad’s or a friend’s house. Football was not my cup of tea. Why a bunch of boys wanted to run around a field and hit each […]

Make the Kids Lose Your Weight.

My kids are going to lose my weight for me.  The diets haven’t worked.  The exercise videos still sit calmly in their wrappers.  Desperate times call for desperate measures.  It’s time to make my kids take some action.

How to Make Good Choices

It’s amazing how the moment you think you have it all together, it all seems to fall apart. Yesterday was so smooth. I got my work done, got the dishes and laundry done, did some cooking (and some freezing) and even did some exercising. This morning, I got up all excited about another day like […]

Diary of a Dieting Fat Chick

I am fat. I’ve tried to ignore the fact for the last couple of years, but the mirrors don’t lie and I have to look in them every now and again. My family has always been weight conscious, so it would be an easy out to say it’s genetic. Just this last holiday, the conversation […]
