Reading, writing but not the arithmetic!

I adore reading all genres! I enjoy my e-reader most often, but there really is something about a paperback that I fall back to every once in a while! I love the feel and the smell of the ink on the pages. I attend college, work full time, happily married for 18 years and in my free time? I write fiction and non-fiction books! I have a yellow lab named, Haole (how-lee) and I live in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. I am a talker! I love getting to know new people and cherish my friendships. I wear all black clothing, because at some point in my life I heard it made you look thin. I try to keep my nail painted, but let's be honest...that rarely happens. I am just your average gal.

All Over the Board!

Who's the Girl in the Fat Suit? - A. L. Elder

In 2014, I decided it was time to clean up my act. I had been neglecting my health and overall well-being for nearly ten years! Yes, ten years. I was looking ragged around the edges and yearning for a new beginning mentally, spiritually as well as a little needed weight loss. Like most, I was completely naive. I thought I would cut out fat, do a little exercise, meditate for a couple of minutes and my whole life would change.

 

That is not how it happened! In fact, I have failed more than I have succeeded in this process of cleaning up my act. But, I have learned a few things along the way that I wanted to share. If nothing more, to let others out there know that there is hope. Overall well-being takes work and research…and patience. [Loads of patience.]
