Goal Setting

Bathing Suit Blues

It has been almost 2 months since we attended Summit in Nashville, where I had an ah-ha moment.   I really had not wanted to attend as once again I was not at my goal weight.  I went because I love my coaches and my TEAM and I wanted to be there for them and that [...]

Changing Perspective – Earned a Gold Star thumbnail

For 21 days while on the 21 Days to Vegan Challenge Kevin and I made a pre-planned dinner every night. Then I created a menu plan for the next week and M, T, W and Th made dinners we had planned and shopped for, 25 planned dinners in a row - and lifetime record for [...]

Day 6 of the Celery Test and Day 12 of our 21 Days to Vegan Challenge and I had an epiphany about a peach this morning.   I never buy peaches and have always just told myself I really don't like them and too much trouble getting the hairy peel off.  Kevin picked out the fruits [...]

John Muir Wilderness and The Minimalists thumbnail

Our 2nd hike was the Little Lakes Valley trail in the Sierras which was rated as moderate difficulty. This trail also connects to the Pacific Crest Trail a few miles away. We were with the same people and this time I had better shoes and trekking poles. The hike we choose was 2.04 miles making [...]
