The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 7/19 by LindaGHill Weigh-in I looked in the mirror yesterday and saw round cheeks, flabby arms, a jiggling tummy and thighs let’s not talk about the thighs.

The beginning of the year is usually characterized by a flurry of excitement. People share their goals, resolutions and we’re bombarded by the pressure to “Start now, get it done, to do something, do it differently, anything new...” with the various slogans and fresh start adages as everyone tries to find a sexy & captivating … Continue reading The World Is Too Much With Us
The seeking of Purpose has been a life long pursuit for me, and I believe that it is a journey not a destination as we are so often taught.

The excuses had seemingly won, and having had … Continue reading Gym for who?
The psychology of willpower, self-control and self-discipline is one littered with various perspectives. I’m a 30-day challenge person myself but know that despite the fact that it kickstarts momentum and gives me a set program to follow, it often doesn’t last past day 6, or maybe even day 11. …and when I do complete … Continue reading Discipline pills
"Be like a duck. Calm on the surface, but always paddling like the dickens underneath" Michael Caine Watching the ducks in the pond outside my home gliding across the water, I came to realize that sometimes in life we need to just continue flapping furiously underneath to keep things going. It seems as … Continue reading Like a duck!
