Thankful Thursdays

This week I am thankful for:

1. Workout buddies. I would have totally stayed in bed today if I didn’t have the accountability of knowing that two people were waiting for me.  (more…)

Stinky Mulch and Mothballs

I really enjoy the path I walk. Though the hill is tough, the view at the top is so worth it. The only problem with that path is the stinky mulch and mothballs.

Someone must have come up with the idea that if the dye mulch pitch black and make it reek like stinky socks, rotten eggs, a compost bin, and a manure pile, that people would buy it. And they were right. You can smell it three houses before you reach it, and it follows you after. Crossing to the other side of the street doesn’t help. And if it’s fresh, it’s a strong enough stench to make you gag. I have not figured out why Knoxville-ans like it so much. Regular mulch is pretty. And it smells better too! (more…)

It was so incredibly appropriate to where I am in life right now (even right down to being in Tennessee), that I replayed it a few times. It was just another reminder to stop and thank God for how good He has been to me! (more…)

Week 1 and 5 pounds

I walked the behemoth hill three times this week, each trip being about 4 miles.

I learned not to take the bike path behind some of the houses last night… it only leads to more insanely steep hills than the normal ones I walk on the road and there is no breeze back there.

And after weighing myself each day this week, I have lost a total of 5 lbs! That’s some good motivation to keep it up! I think I like my new routine! (more…)
