I recently posted a meme that said, “If you’ve become obsessed about weighing yourself often to see if you’ve lost weight, then put the scale away.” That meme seemed to put some of my friends and followers off.

My hubby and I spent a week out just to get away. We were on burnout, just absolutely spent. Rest and relaxation were just what we needed. I had to force myself to not write or create memes. That was hard. I only posted a Bible verse from my iPhone app. In the meantime, while we were at my hubby’s family Christmas gathering, I started seeing people post on social m...Read Full Post »

I had a recent conversation with a young working mom who has preschoolers. She recently began full-time hours at work, so her more aggressive workouts had to take a backseat to her busy life.
