My First 5K!

My friend Gretchen asked me to join her team for a local Walk for Suicide Awareness in our hometown. A few of our team members couldn't make it, so we ended up with Gretchen, her husband, my mom, Xander, and me... team Step Into Love. This year was the fourth-annual...

Our Minty Bathroom Touch-Up

I followed through with my Labor Day plans and dealt with (most) of our bathroom. There's not a lot of extra money, because we are saving up to replace our carpeting... so I mixed together the leftovers of the two shades of minty green used in our office/ playroom...

The Finger

This thing with my skin is so frustrating sometimes. It's just my hands... and in many ways, I'm fortunate for that... but it can be so dang inconvenient! A lot of people act like it's no big deal, but they don't understand the day to day struggle to avoid irritants...

Mugging

We were recently at A&W for lunch with Xander's Nana (my mom). We went often when we were growing up... until A&W began to fade from existence around here. We were really excitedwhen they started t make a comeback. They have the best root beer! It's all about...

{Interviews With the Prince} Colors

Today begins a new segment on Tyrneathem. Much like my Interviews With Myself segment, Interviews With the Prince will include a random get to know you type of question or journal prompt. In this case the response will be typed by the Prince himself. For the record,...

Love Your Body

Name at least one thing that you love about your body. One of my favorite features are my eyes. I know that's what everyone says and a bit of a cop-out, but I love having blue eyes. They change color with my mood... pale when I'm happy and dark when I'm angry or sad....

Fever

We ended up taking Xander into the emergency room last night. He was warm to the touch, despite a normal reading on the thermometer. He was sleeping and we couldn't wake him up. His heart felt like it was beating out of his chest. They ran a half dozen tests that all...

Water Baby

We've been on vacation! It was definitely interesting trying to maintain this blog while I was away. My phone service was really sketchy and I found I had far less time to turn on the computer than I expected... not so much "leisure" time. We visited Wisconsin Dells...

Our Furbaby Is In Surgery

This afternoon, we had to take our younger cat Selune in to the local emergency pet clinic. She had been a bit under the weather for about two days, but I attributed it to a bad case of hairballs. The weather has been crazy and both cats have been shedding up a storm....

Friends

Do you think your friends are a positive or negative influence on your healthy lifestyle? What are some ways you and your friends can make healthier choices when you're together? Overall I think that my friends have a positive impact on my healthy lifestyle. We all...

Exercise Skills

When it comes to exercise, I am really good at _________, but I could use some improvement with _________. Exercise is not necessarily one of my favorite daily tasks, but there are some exercise skills I think I do well at. I am very good with things that require...

Clothes Shopping

Going clothes shopping makes me feel____. Like crap. I feel so defeated by my weight when I am trying to find my size. I get even more discouraged when I do find something that fits and it just makes me look like a tent or a blob. I used to love clothes shopping......

Chalk

For those who follow me on Instagram, this is a repeat. Xander and I were outside playing in the driveaway. We started out drawing with chalk, but Xander got bored with it faster than I did... so he decided to grab his trike and drive over...

Affecting Others

Is anyone else in your life benefitting from your healthy lifestyle changes? As indicated in my first Rediscovering My Spark post, I've decided to share some of my journal prompts here. I encourage you to blog about these topics too. They are simple prompts that keep...

Rediscovering My Spark

Anyone following me for even a short time likely knows at least a little about my struggle with weight. After 10 years of fighting the effects of prednisone, I struggle to maintain motivation and keep fighting the fight against fat. I'm always creating "challenges"...

Unplugged ~ The Aftermath

We survived an "unplugged" day... though we were not quite as unplugged as I'd promised myself we would be. I did check in here to tackle a few questions and concerns. I popped in on Facebook to help a friend. My husband played on his computer. I forgot Wednesdays are...

Unplugged

This house is definitely wired. We have two smartphones, a Kindle Fire, a huge HD Smart TV, a gaming system, a Blu-ray player with internet, a desktop computer, and two laptop computers. Some days all that tech just gets overwhelming! So in the interest of sanity and...

Pool Party With Nana

It was finally consistently warm and dry enough for a few days to get Xander's pool set up. My mom was over and joined in the fun. FYI: I think we would have been warmer standing in a pool filled with ice cubes! BRRRRRR! Yet another PicMonkey edit. I did an auto-fix...

Zoo Collage

We spent the day at the zoo with Xander's Nana, Grandma, auntie, uncle, and cousin. The weather was muggy. The rain that came was something of a relief. I think we mostly had fun despite sweating our rear ends off. 😛 Here is a collage of our day. Mom and I didn't...

Relaxin’

Today's photo was taken on the 4th while we were waiting for the fireworks to start. Xander was having a blast just hanging out and people-watching. Edited using PicMonkey. I cropped the photo to an 8x10 size. I applied the Cross Process effect and then the Rapture...
