Just Do It! some running ramblings

I know Nike made this statement big in athletics and exercise years ago. We see the swoop and we automatically get it, and yes today was one of those days that I had to “just do it.” This past year I have poured a lot of my spare “work out” time to yoga and pursuing…

Monday Musings… pondering much

“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.” 3john2 Maybe I am more wiped out from the weekend than I think. I woke up early, but was enjoying the chirping of birds, the cool breeze through the window,…

Approved… what does that mean?

I posted this picture on facebook last week with the hope of blogging about my journey in  obtaining exemption from mandatory flu vaccination. I am still trying to process enough to put it all into intelligent, wise words (like I could do that!) I suppose I will start with answering just the facts,  answer the…

It’s that moment…

Recently I posted about anxiety… Today I experienced an extreme moment of said anxiety. The sun was shining, it was nearly 50 degrees here in the mid-west so I HAD to run 🙂 … in shorts.. with snow on the ground! As I walked up the driveway after pounding out a decent 4 miles I…

Anxious? “do not worry about anything”

As I sat this morning pouring over e-mails, checking a few things online and trying to patiently wait for the Docs’ office to call back (no I am not sick), the lawyer to call back (no I am not “in trouble”), I could slowly hear the mounting wheel of “worry” cranking in my head. I…

What get’s you out the door?

Yesterday I procrastinated a run. The sun was bright but the temps registered between 28-30 degrees brrrr. Usually I don’t mind running in the winter, but my lame excuse yesterday was that my toes were already cold! No I don’t wear cotton socks, smartwool or icebreaker for this girl. In all honesty it was just…

… is it the “flu?” lots of thoughts

I sit her cozy in my kitchen sipping tea, fireplace going, listening to Passion 2013 and reading a lot about the flu. I know I take a risk opening up this topic, but so many people have been sick at work. Reports on TV state it’s the worst flu season in a long time the…

“simmer… simmer down…” I can’t, I am gonna blow!

I sat down at the computer a couple of hours ago hoping, praying that I would intelligently compile my data, incidental info, facts, keep my emotions at the couch and write a letter expressing my reasons for declining the impending mandatory flu vaccination at my job. I know I take a risk putting this post…

Attitude, choices… spillage :)

How’s that for a title? It’s Wednesday, I am usually off on Wednesday’s, I go to hot yoga, catch up, go to house church. I had said in my head that I would make sure that I at least blogged once a week, Wednesday would work…. yea, we see how that has gone! So I…

Apple addiction, obsession or just call me Eve?

I am confessing, I am professing I am obsessing over apples. Not just any apple, but organic Fugi apples. Sunday was my first day without my fix of a fugi. I had run out and not made it to the store. On the road trip back from taking Jones’ kids to their ‘rents, the cravings…

“whatever Aunt Debbie would make”

Earlier in the week I received a text from my sister Diana. She had asked her soon to be graduate, Zach what he wanted to eat at his graduation open house? “Whatever Aunt Debbie would make.” I would be lying if I didn’t say this warmed my heart, brought a smile to my “green lips.”…

To write, or to write, cheese, or cheesey!

When I first started this blog I wasn’t sure the direction. I wanted it to be a blog to inspire people to think about their health. To really look at what they are putting into their body, how they are treating their body as a whole. I wanted to post information, recipes like all the…
