Back, out.

enchanted-rockMy back went out yesterday. For no good reason. Yes, I went hiking Sunday, to Enchanted Rock State Park. But isn’t it gorgeous? It really is an enchanting place! And yes, I did yard work that involved wielding a Tonka-toy-like chainsaw (anniversary present) on Monday, nothing new there.
I think the real reason may be the extra lb or 2 that I wear like a belt and had put on over the holidays. Time to rev up the core workouts. Just not this week.   : 0

Until then, ice and ibuprofen will be my closest friends.


Lunch in a jar – Sugar Ban is ON!


It’s what I get. What I get for over-indulging this Christmas season. Actually, it began back in October!

A Pinterest grab, compact, convenient, easy to make, snack-in-a-jar. Olives, tomatoes in Balsamic vinegar topped with Feta cheese, yum-O! Did it satisfy? Yes. Did it crush the pangs? No. Roasted almonds helped with that, lol.

Seriously though, the sugar-ban is officially ON! Let’s DO this!
