Focus on the next 5 minutes…

I’ve been sick for the past few days and all I could do was just focus on the here and now. The few minutes in front of me. Not work/projects left undone. Not exercise I’m missing. Nothing but the current moment.

I wake this morning feeling a lot better, realizing once again, that YES!! -life should be lived in the moment. Not hyper-focusing on the future. Always planning, always micro-managing the unknown.

There is a reason why Santa is not skinny!

What is it with this time of year and sugar-laden treats??? It’s a tradition to leave Santa cookies, it’s a tradition to have a cookie-exchange, and it’s tradition to attend several holiday parties and they all have high-calorie treats

Sundays are for Meal Prepping!

The kitchen: friend or foe?? The kitchen at my house is both. There is an on-going love/hate relationship with me and the kitchen. I love to eat—food is in the kitchen. I hate to cook, (and horrible at it) which means quick and go foods make up the majority of my diet. I want to loose some of the extra fat cells that are accumulating up around my mid-section—which means I need to be mindful of what I eat. My life is about to get very busy, time to plan ahead and do that “meal prep” thing!
