Have you started planning them? If not, that’s okay. You still have a couple of days. For some of you, goal setting is easy, and you do it every year without […]

How to Improve Your Life in 2016 - 5 Things to Say NO To!
  With the new year approaching, many are setting goals for what they want to accomplish.  We look for how to improve our lives, and seek those things.  I do the same every year, and it’s something I really enjoy.  Last night, however, I couldn’t fall asleep – not because I was thinking about what I want to do in 2016, but about what I DON’T want to do.  The two phrases that came in my mind over and over […]

Oh me, oh my. I didn’t post a weekly plan, goals or menu-wise last week.  Everything just got crazy and what can I say?  I slacked off. I finally had my follow up doctor appointment to get the results of the blood tests.  And it wasn’t pretty. Severe anemia pattern, so low that unless we get it up quickly I’ll need IV therapy. Possible Hyperparathyroidism (not the same as thyroid issues), will need surgery…one more blood test was done on […]

Menu Monday and Weekly Goals

Happy Monday! Another week is upon us.  It’s June 16, and guess what?  I’m COLD.  It is stormy here and, according to the forecast, it’s only going to be in the 60’s for the next couple of days!  It’s not too bad, but woah, I’m completely confused! Last week we took a family trip to Zion National Park.  It was in the 100’s then, but we had a great time.  What a beautiful world we live in! Now we’re back […]

Menu Monday – Weekly Meal Plan and Goals

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it.  I’m SO proud of myself!! I STUCK TO THE MEAL PLAN.  THE ENTIRE MEAL PLAN. That’s right, y’all.  Can it be done 2 weeks in a row?  I don’t know, it seems like something always comes up that changes my dinner plans.  I’m gonna try for it though, because oh, it was SO nice to always know what we were having!  I’m gonna shoot for the stars on this one! I’m eating out […]

Oh my gosh!  Can you hear it?  That little violin playing the world’s saddest song?  It’s playing for me, you know.  Because it’s still cold and rainy here!  I need me some sunshine!   My poor family, ha ha. In an attempt to find some sanity, I suppose I should stop stalling and plan some meals, eh?  I’m also starting a May spending freeze challenge, and a May Let’s Get Fit challenge, because I need some motivation, in a big […]

Menu Monday – Weekly Meal Plan and Weekly Goals

Once again, big thanks to Blogging for Books…I hope you have enjoyed their New Year’s Goals “series” as much as I have.  I now share with you the final installment:     Putting Your Faith in Action by Nick Vujicic Having faith, beliefs, and convictions is a great thing, but your life is measured by the actions you take based upon them. You can build a great life around those things you believe and have faith in. I’ve built mine […]

New Years Goals – Faith to Action

Part 4 in Blogging for Books’ goals series is all about finding a fresh perspective….perfect for this topic!     Starting the New Year with a Fresh Perspective by Mike Glenn In the story of the prodigal son, Luke uses a curious phrase when the younger son realizes what he has lost and determines to go home. The King James Version translates the phrase, “He came to himself.” That phrase has always fascinated me. How do you come to yourself? […]
