**Burning Thighs Bike Ride**….raising money for the doggies, one muscle spasm at a time.

I have been peddling up hills and cruising down my path, hoping  to accomplish the challenge that Bob submitted last month.  Lindsey has helped me with training and hopefully this Sunday the weather is going to be kind to us when  we hit the open road peddling for the pooches and raising money for Recycled […]

Wrap it up.

I have written about my father several times since the beginning of the dog-lbs project. Today he would have celebrated his 97th birthday. He still lingers in my thoughts daily, memories of him are never far away and it makes me happy to find ways to include him in my life. I name my foster […]

Indian Summer.

“How do you feel about an outdoor workout today, complete with weights and all!” This is the text Lindsey sent me yesterday.  It was simply glorious outside, the perfect day of warmth and summer sun yet the magnificent fall foliage wearing it’s colors loud and proud draped itself all around us.

Taste the rainbow.

This weekend was all about color in every way, shape and form. Saturday morning as I pulled back the covers to the  cold, brisk wake up call that made me immediately recant back under the warm covers. Unfortunately, it was too late as I would find three cold wet noses nudging me to get up […]

Stepping back up…

…on the scale this morning I would find that I lost 4 more pounds this month. Considering the mini-meltdown the first two weeks of the month, which was a very good lesson in exactly how important moderation and good choices for my body, mind and spirit are the only way for me to continue down […]
