My 100+ Journey – Day One … What does DAY ONE mean?

My 100+ Journey – Day One … What does DAY ONE mean?

My 100+ Journey - Day One|

To many people, day one of a new life journey might involve following a plan that has been carefully devised.  Preparation has been completed and they are READY to begin!

Well …. I AM READY to begin.  I am … and I’m not.

Very uncharacteristically of me, I have NOT prepared, shopped, prepped food and/or put together a workout schedule, etc.  In fact, the other night I was sitting at my computer working and not feeling well. I had carb overloaded from my food intact that day and my legs and feet were swollen.  It hit me that I HAD to do something and make a change.

I have a hidden (not so secret) Secret …

We all Have Secrets|

I have a hidden (OK maybe not hidden, and in fact … very obvious if you have seen me in the last few months) “secret”.  I have gained back much of the weight I lost … again!  Yes, like so many other people on this horrible roller coaster, I am back up to 300 pounds.  Now before I am sanctioned by the blog police for being redundant with my words, let me explain.

My Dear Mr. Spider

Spider|http://www.stephsneckofthewoods.comMy Dear Mr. Spider,

While I sat innocently at my desk, working and taking care of business needs, you felt it was acceptable to drop down from a web. Not in the corner of my office, where you MAY have remained safe for the evening. Not behind me, where you MIGHT have remained unnoticed, as I was quite immersed in work. But instead, you drop down in FRONT of me and touch my face; my nose specifically.

DIY – Gel Air Fresheners

DIY Air Fresheners http://www.stephsneckofthewoods.comHow do you freshen your home?  Room sprays, air freshers? Gels, solid, plug ins, heated oils, sprays, potpourri etc., I’ve used them all!

According to a research study of approx. 24,000 adults, 73.9% of them use air freshener sprays and room deodorizers.

According to the EPA, the 4 most common ingredients in air fresheners are formaldehyde, petroleum distillates, p-dichlorobenzene, and aerosol propellants.  Did you know that the ingredient “fragrance” can represent upwards of 300 chemicals?  And they are not required to list them.  I don’t want my family breathing all of those toxins!
