Happy New Year!
Goodness, it has been so long since I have posted here. Do I even have any followers left?
So, what has happened since my last post? Too much to cover in a short blog post, but 2 main highlights were that 2 of my children got married in 2016.

First of all, I hope everyone is having a fabulous Labor Day! If possible, spend time with the ones you love and be grateful for the people that bring joy to your life.
My 100+ Journey – Day One … What does DAY ONE mean?
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 (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,
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.
Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World
Today on Facebook, I watched a video from one of the Oola Guys.

Let’s get moving tip for today … brush your teeth. If you have a challenge with snacking, shortly after a meal, try this trick.
This is the time of year that many people make promises/resolutions. Here is a quick and easy project with a positive twist to it.
How 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!
