Back to my routine

From my posts last week you know that I was on vacation. I had a great, amazing and relaxing time with The Husband in the Caribbean. The water on Turks and Caicos was absolutely a beautiful, gorgeous turquoise. I lounged a lot, slept in a lot, got some sun. I also ingested a lot of […]


No excuses

Monday was my day to get back on the healthy living wagon. No excuses. The cafe at work always has healthy options for breakfast and lunch. (Curt and I were out of town over the weekend so I didn’t have a chance to get to the grocery store.) Having the work cafe means I have […]


In my mind I am healthy

Yesterday, which was Day 2 of back to healthy living, I realized that I already felt better. I was only on Day 2 of back to eating healthy and into my regular exercise routine. And it was already making a difference in how I felt. I think a big part of healthy living is mental […]

Walking a golf course and then some

Curt and I drove down to Monterey on Friday night. That’s one of the great things about our life and lifestyle … our friend Tag, who is a professional golfer, texted Curt on Monday night asking if he should save tickets for us for the weekend. Before I hit the sack we had decided that […]


Being OK with change while taking care of No. 1

You may have noticed that my posts are not as frequent lately. It’s not that I don’t want to share my wealth of research with you or that I don’t want to share the posts I already have written and I just need to hit the publish button or that I don’t still love writing […]
