Hello and Welcome!

I am, and always have been, a notoriously bad blogger. But I'm back to give it another try, one more time.

I seem to have rediscovered my "pep" in recent times, and I'm ready to try some new things, and get back into the things that matter to me... at this stage, this chiefly involves getting fit and losing weight (again!)

  1. Thanks for taking the time to do this!! Love your answers

  2. I'm going to give that a shot in my blog today too. Might kill some time...

    As for the new diet, I am giving it a red hot crack. If you can find me on CK (swayerm), check out my food diary, it's public.
    Today I struggled with what I had available in the house. I have worked out that I can't have my low carb pancakes and trail mix in the same day, because I too get strange about the fat content...
    It's going to be interesting, because as I am without a gall bladder... upping the fat content is going to make me feel kinda weird!!!

  3. The hoedown throwdown is a dance off the Hannah Montanna movie :)
    Youtube it, it's hilarious.
