Popcorn

I love movies. I love popcorn. I can tell you exactly the last time I had real movie theatre popcorn. I was in Toronto for the International Film Festival seeing Infamous in 2006. I can still distinctly remember the glorious intoxicating smell of the fluffy popped kernels coated in the buttery mixture followed by the […]

2

Two more pounds down and that leaves me with the motivation to really focus and dig deep with the goal of  losing 12 lbs by the end of February. At that point I will be on target having lost 50lbs in 6 months. Then I will be 41 pounds from getting under the 300 lb […]

The gift with a pink ribbon.

It seems like my life has been all about me for the last several months. I know in some ways it is a necessity as I focus on what  I am trying to accomplish. What is Lori eating, when is Lori walking, who can Lori call when she is sitting 10 feet from a drive […]

hocus-pocus

Sometimes inspiration comes in the oddest forms imaginable. I woke up this morning to the grey icy world waiting for the dogs and I as we started our day. Outside the crisp air was actually refreshing and I found it funny that I was talking myself into a walk/run rather than out of one. Jessica […]

Mission Impossible.

That my friends would be a trip to the grocery store the night before they are predicting bad weather. We have a horrible  habit where I live of thinking armageddon comes in the way of fluffy white flakes that fall from the sky. I have often said that the grocery stores are in cahoots with […]

Running down a dream.

Last night  I walked into the gym, met my good friend Jessica and off we went to find side by side treadmills that were available. One foot up then the other and I began to walk. Jessica is a runner, she runs with dogs almost every day it is her job and her passion. I […]

Joy

It happens every time I walk in the door, I am bombarded with love from my dogs. The kisses, excited yelps, the wagging tails and wiggly butts, they are at times the only thing that keeps me going. I can’t imagine a day without them, a day without their unconditional love, their inspiration, their adoring […]

Shed your skin.

This is one of those posts that I didn’t know I was going to write until I am feverishly pecking away at the keyboard almost daring myself to actually do it.   Skin n. A usually thin, closely adhering outer layer. Closely adhering. If there is any proof left on my body that my frame […]

1915

My dad was born in 1915 the same year as Frank Sinatra, Orson Welles and Ingrid Bergman. The cost of a gallon of milk was $0.36 , a stamp costs $0.02 and Babe Ruth hit his first career home run. Sometimes try as I may, it is still hard for me to comprehend that my […]

How Nancy changed the day.

Today started like something out of a movie where everything that can go wrong does.  I had been up most of the night sick so when I woke up this morning I was sure somewhere there were tire marks cause I felt like someone ran over me. Had to cancel my swim with Charmaine which […]

walk this way

Tonight was the weekly “dog-lbs” walking group. A group of folks meet every week at a local park and we walk about 4 miles together. Everyone is welcome to bring their dogs so there is generally a lil pack of four legged sweeties walking with us. We have walked every week since September 1st with […]

Give myself an inch, and I will take a mile.

Everyday there are lessons, all around me, so many in fact that at times it seems impossible to acknowledge  them all let alone understand them. The past few weeks have been a heartbreaking blur. I have not been to the gym in many days, I have teetered on the edge of making bad choices only […]

my big fat greek turkey burger

Tonight I made a turkey burger that exceeded my expectations and I thought I would share the recipe with you… that I made up as I went along. I had defrosted a pound of organic, free range turkey breast and knew I was going to make a burger for dinner but what to do to […]

Forward.

Forward into a new year, new possibilities and a new hope for the world to be a kinder place for both two and four legged beings. I am reflecting on 2011 as a true gift and letting go of the heartbreak, loss and darkness of which there was plenty. From that place came an unexpected […]
