One way or another

If the skies insist on being gray and gloomy then I'll get my sunshine another way.

Feel like a slacker

While I was on vacation I tried to keep up with my fitness goals but I found it a bit difficult. I had 2 days where I didn't even make the 10,000 steps for the day. This week I'm back to work and no problem with getting the steps in but after work I'm not going out for the walks like I was doing before. The colder weather has me slowing down.

The good news is thought that I haven't been digging in to this bowl of chocolates

These were left over from some thank you gifts I made for a few of the girls at work. They have been sitting on the table for over 2 weeks now and I've been very good only occasionally having one. After all at just 42 calories each a little indulgence can't hurt. My daughter has graciously offered to assist in removing the temptation and has worked on decreasing the little goodies each time she stops over.

Without my consent

Summer has left us and fall has taken up residence. Since I can't stop it I may as well just enjoy it.


I'm sure there are plenty of warm days ahead yet but the temperatures have been cooler during the day and down to the 40's at night. Pull out the warm pajamas, long sleeve shirts and put on some water for a cup of tea. Fall is in the air.

I read somewhere the other day about heating up apple cider and plopping in a chai tea bag. Sounds rather yummy and I may need to buy some apple cider.

What is your favorite thing about fall? I think for me it's the colors.
