I started boot camp one year ago today. Not just any boot camp, but Bright Line Eating (BLE) boot camp. I actually started sticking to the plan the week before, so this is week 53 of following the plan. Prior to that, I spent two years proving to myself that I could not do BLE… Continue reading Reflection: What I’ve Gained this Past Year
Good day, friends. My, it has been a while. Not only that, we are living in a very different world than the last time I wrote. Life certainly has changed for me, and I'm sure it has for you too. It seemed like the decade was getting off to a great start when we got… Continue reading Dwelling on Excellence
Happy New Year! Can you believe it is here? The start of a new year . . . the start of a new decade! Have you thought about it? Where were you (physically, spiritually, emotionally) in 2010? How has your life changed?
It certainly has been an interesting Fall. It seemed like we started by going straight from Summer to Winter. We had measurable snow on October 30th! It is very unusual for us to have snow in them on the month of October. As I mentioned in last week's post, I was looking into fitness center… Continue reading Problem Solved
Image by Free-Photos from Pixabay I am sorry for not getting a post out last week. I have noticed for many, many years that October and April are traditionally our busiest months of the year. Even though last Wednesday was technically November, it seemed like the busyness of the previous month had accumulated and I… Continue reading Breakfast; an Early, Smelly Winter; and a Kitchen Safe
I had this photo pop up on Facebook this week from three years ago. It was a "memory" that it wanted me to share on my page. I didn't share it, and I usually don't because I get tired of seeing everyone else's "memories" from years ago. This photo that I took three years ago… Continue reading Becoming the Best Me
My doorbell rang at 9:00 am yesterday morning. I wasn't expecting anyone and couldn't imagine who it could be. I answered the door to find Susan Pierce Thompson on my doorstep! Well, her likeness, anyway. In one of her videos I heard SPT describe her cookbook as beautiful. And it is. Inside and out! I… Continue reading The Official BLE Cookbook is Here!
As I mentioned in my last post, the last few days of my vacation did not go as planned. I ended up eating off plan and not eating well--including NMF. I don't know why, but it only takes one second to go off plan. But once you do, it is a long struggle to get… Continue reading A Bit of a Rant
Last week was my first time to travel with Bright Line Eating. I'll tell you right off that it was far from perfect. But, it was a good learning experience--otherwise known as research. First, I did a lot of planning. We were staying at a resort where we would have a full-size kitchen and could… Continue reading Traveling with Bright Line Eating
This week I have a heavy heart. Why, you might ask? I know people are grieving. We had a father in church Sunday talk about his son's birthday being just around the corner. You would think that this would be an exciting, happy occasion, but this son passed away before entering this world. He would… Continue reading A Heavy Heart
