It’s Time to Stop Sabotaging Myself…

Determination Quote

Here we are, the middle of March, and I have yet to really focus on my 2014 goals of getting healthier. I keep trying to begin, but life gets in the way and I easily allow it to knock me off track.

On Facebook, several of my family members and friends have been saying what they are thankful for each day, and they plan to continue to do so throughout November.

My husband. Cliche, I know, but he … [Read more...]
