I started losing weight last year.  It stalled around July and I just kinda skimmed through life not really adhering to anything much.  In late October/early November, I signed up with Weight Watchers Online.  I had a few friends that had seen success with their SmartPoints system.  I liked the idea of Weight Watchers because

Watercoloring Adventures!

It all started with an innocent class with Beth Woessner to learn how to paint cupcakes for birthday cards in August. I had always thought the painterly ways of watercolor were beautiful.  Yet, I didn’t think I’d be able to attack this medium.  It’s so loose and free and I’m not… I’m kind of a

Consistently Inconsistent

I am definitely consistently inconsistent when it comes to posting here on the blog.  With social media, I often wonder if blogging is even worth it…. I mean, I think I have one faithful reader (myself).  But I like that I can look back over blog posts and see where I’ve been and where I’m

Granny Square Dishcloths

I am a sucker for these sweet dishcloths!  I found out that a dear work friend of mine is getting married this Sunday!  He’s in the military, came home and is stationed in Kansas and she’s here in Arkansas.  They were engaged in July and were going to get married next October, but moved up

So I went to the doctor for my 3 month diabetes check up.  You might remember this post where I admitted to a 9.1 A1C level.  Dude.  That’s high – like wayyyy too high.  My goal is 6.5 with my current goal of just getting it to 7.    As of today – 7.2!  That’s almost

Weight Loss Progress

So I haven’t posted in a while about my weight loss journey.  Mainly because I keep changing my mind about what I’m going to do to lose weight… and it’s a struggle ya’ll.  Since starting the blog over in July (my new beginning), I have done weight watchers, counted calories, and started a beach body

Ya’ll, a lot has been going on this past week or so since I last updated. My daughter turned 18 and started college; her boyfriend started his senior year, which means football season is upon us; my son is switching colleges and opting to go online full time; I started a weight loss challenge through
