No, no…NOT that silly goose.   I would never ask you to FAKE “IT”!!! lol

I’m referring to a task I simply abhor…COOKING. In 18 plus years of marriage and raising a child, I somehow mastered the art of “faking it.” (in the kitchen)   Faking it…reluctantly dispensing stodgy food from my kitchen about 3 times a week to appease my hubby and teenager.

How many times have you been deceived by the detox diet of the day? Maybe you’ve been sucked into one of the quadZILLION fake supplement shams? How many dollars have you spent on phony meal plans and workout DVD’s that have left you frustrated and abandoned?

The bag tightened around my entire body as I was lowered into the icy water. I sank slowly towards the darkness below, too cold to flail or resist its menacing pull. The handcuffs, which were tightly attached to my pale hands, were the only remnants of the outside world I had left. I took a deep breath and forced myself to relax, but I knew I never would.

Is Fitness too Expensive?  (3 min read)

NO it’s not!!!

This question or notion is completely absurd. The next time you hear someone say, “I just can’t lose weight because it’s way too costly,” (in a whiney whimpered voice) you have my permission to slap them back into reality!! Pla-lease!

I have a newly spry and happy go lucky 14-year-old daughter. She is in full-blown teenager mode and I find myself in the thick of this obscure awkward phase of our relationship. Parenting along side of the teenage GIRL is an odd slippery slope and sometimes a really fun precious place to be.

“Life is like a river that’s constantly moving. It’s what we do with the River when it’s moving that counts.”

What does that even mean? Your life is a River. Whether we make a difference in our lives or not, our lives are not stopping and waiting for our choices. It keeps moving. They key to a moving river is making sure you have resources to ride the waves. If you do not have the resources, how do you get them? Ask for them. You can work to earn them.

It’s been a while since I was in High School, but when I think back on my time in High School, there are certain memories that come back to the sports and clubs I was involved with, the friends I had, and the teachers that made an impact in my life, but none of these things haunt me as heavily as meeting “Chris”. We’ll call him Chris to respect his privacy. Continue reading When Killing Yourself Doesn’t Work: There’s Hope (3 min read)

On 16 June 1980, Chris Yates smashed the U.K. carp record with a 51.5 lb. leviathan from Redmire Pool in Herefordshire, England. For years, as a young inbetweener in the late 80’s, the awe of super-sized carp remained an elusive fantasy, with captures of significantly smaller fish restricted to all things under 5 lb. Big fish were the stuff of dreams, full of magic and unattainable mystery; at least until we found Crakemarsh Pool. An old estate lake sat in the grounds of an ancient, abandoned manse crumbling in neglect and despair. One of those places that ooze yesteryear, in surroundings filled with pre-history, barrows, and Roman settlements. Where time bleeds into the present reminding us of its unstoppable march forwards deleting the past. Continue reading Ghost Carp (3 min read)

The Start Of My Future The End Of My Past

High school is a blur going from class to class, then lunch, which Catherine seemed to have skipped without me. Guess she was more upset then she seemed, but I was just telling the truth and looking out for my best friend. I’m not saying I’m psyched but it’s a feeling that I can’t explain, something that’s never happened to me before but I know that what I feel is true. Because of this feeling and my big mouth I’m forced to eat lunch alone, like a loser. Sitting at a table all by myself eating and reading a book. I’m glad when the ending bell for lunch rings, I get up and throw my lunch away and hurry to class, anything is better than sitting at a table by myself while everyone is laughing and enjoying themselves around you.
