Wave Goodbye to the Etiquette of Yesterday

The other day I was driving on the freeway and the guy in the lane next to me wanted over. It was pretty clear by the persistent blinking of his blinker.  The people in front of me obviously couldn’t stand the idea of letting even one more car in front

Old, Fat and Mostly Dead

Let me tell you about my favorite day in February. Some might say it’s Valentine’s Day since I’m single and when you’re single, who doesn’t enjoy a reminder that one day you will die alone. However, it’s not Valentine’s Day. It’s Biometric Screening Day at work. It’s the delightful day

I’m not insulting you, I’m describing you.

We all know those people who are “too honest” for your own good, yes I said “your own good”. I tend to avoid them if possible. No matter how much we claim we want “honesty in our relationships”, the sugar-coated truth is more convenient. More often then not, we already know the truth,

The Fuchsia Shorts Really Bring Out Your Face

As some of you know, I’ve been on a diet and when I say “diet”, what I really mean is, starving myself because the gym is useless. Before you freak out and assess me with an eating disorder, please know I had doctor supervision at least twenty percent of the time.

Don’t run from the rain, run into it

Single Parenting Sucks Sometimes

Guest Blogger April Vacations are over-rated in my single parenting life. It’s days like today I really do wish I was married. At the moment, I’m recovering from a day of “fun” with my 8, 7 and 4-year-old daughters. I love my girls, but they can wear me out! It’s

Why you should jump, when it feels safer to stand still.

A few weeks ago, I went cliff jumping with some friends. As always, the experience was a bit terrifying yet exhilarating at the same time. I’ve been cliff jumping a total of three times at a couple of different locations. If you have never gone, be sure to add it

When the gym hates you, as much as you hate it.

Ask anyone you know how they feel about the gym and if they are normal human beings their response should be “I hate it with the passion of a thousand suns.” There are a few weirdos out there that actually enjoy going to the gym. Typically, I don’t hang out

It doesn’t get more personal than the OBGYN, or does it?

There are a few things I’ve learned about God in the years I’ve been a believer. One, He seems to have a sense of humor and two, if you pray for solutions to life’s issues, He tends to give you answers you would never have predicted. God is omnipresent and

My Journey to the Dreaded Gym

Guest Blogger Kristen Key CRACK. POP. CRUNCH. Those weren’t the sounds of me breaking into a delicious chocolate candy bar, in case you were wondering. Those were the sounds my body made as I, a woman of pleasant plumpness, tried to exercise. My body ached as I attempted to recreate
