31 Day Blog Challenge Day One – Introduction

As I've been going back through old posts and cleaning things up a bit, I have noticed that my blog has really lost that personal touch that was once so important to me. So, when I stumbled across the following pin, I knew I had to do it. It will be a chance to bring...

I Failed My Resolutions… Let’s Try This Again

Yep, it's the old "I failed my resolutions... let's try this again." post of the new year. I guess you could say that the upside is that I still haven't given up on those goals. 😉 I have made some progress but very little on my personal weight loss goal. Well, I...

First Snow of the Year

The first snow of the year came today. It felt out of place. We were walking around without jackets yesterday and now we're pulling out the parkas and snow boots! The snow we get now is kind of depressing. I remember bright white, fluffy snow. It used to get so high!...

The First Day of Kindergarten

The new school year is officially off to a start here. Xander started his Kindergarten year yesterday. He didn't begin the day very thrilled about the idea. It was a tough morning getting our little night owl out of bed and off to the bus. He didn't want to eat...

Borderline Asthma?

This year has not been going quite as I had hoped in terms of fitness. I have been dealing with some on and off breathing issues since around the new year. At first I thought it was just a bad cold... Xander seems to be bringing home a new bug every other day... but...

A New Year

Another year and the same ol’ resolution. I guess I don’t really make resolutions, per se… it’s just that the first day of each year feels like a great place to start fresh or begin something. I truly needed a fresh start this year. I’ve been getting so down about my...

Highest Weight Ever… Ugh!

I still get angry when I think of my accident at work, the prednisone I was on too long, and the out of control weight gain that followed. I get angry at how much my body changed and how quickly. It's not that keeping my weight "normal" was every easy... I worked out...

Family, Death & Hypocrisy

This will seem so random among the midst of reviews and giveaways, but sometimes a person just needs to vent. Way back when Tyrneathem first began (under a different name at that time), this was primarily a personal journal. I've lost touch with that side of this...

Off to a Rocky Start

I mentioned a few days ago that I was going to be essentially restarting my weight loss journey yet another time. I set May 1st as my start date and I was all ready to go. It turned out to be quite the rocky start!  My mom was set to move from one apartment to another...

Selune ~ Then and Now

Selune is our little photogenic cat goddess. She loves to be on camera! Our petite little Pandora is not so fond of cameras, so you don't get to see her so much. I will try to do a feature like this of her soon... if she cooperates with the "now" picture. It's by a...

Happy New Year! Goals for the New Year

I just wanted to send out a quick wish for a happy and healthy new year. I hope you will join me in the coming weeks (and months) as I recommit to my goals. I will be sharing my progress on weight loss, exploring new blog topics, and bringing a whole slew of new...

Time & the Tradesman

I'm not quite sure what it was or is about this poem that strikes me so much, but I felt the need to share it.  I can't even recall where I originally stumbled across it. I didn't originally know the author... the information wasn't with the copy I had of it... but I...
