younique badge

You've probably heard of them. The fiber lashes. They're kind of a big deal these days. Me? I'm a skeptic, always. Plus, my lashes are pretty good on their own. I've used a drugstore brand for years - you know, the one in the pink and green bottle. And we're cool, man. But guys? I'm going to … [Read more...]

The Older Sister / Kindred Spirits

I love to find out that there are people having the same problems that I am. Having a kindred spirit makes things just feel better. At least you know you aren't alone in your troubles and having them be in my own age group is the icing on the cake. Last week, I did a post about how hard it is … [Read more...]

running-girl-sunset

And so it begins. The air is getting cooler, the rain is turning to sleet, which turns to snow (at least here in Colorado ALREADY!) and the motivation to go on a run completely fades away.

The-Older-Sister-Series

After a run of half hearted attempts at trying to lose weight and get in shape, I think I have finally gotten the hang of this. Somehow, knowing that I am turning 60 in a few months has become a great motivator. I have one question though for you all. Why does it have to be so … [Read more...]

The Importance of Rest Days

rest&recovery

If you're like me, you're not very good at doing nothing. I always feel the need to do some sort of exercise daily and often forget the importance of a rest day.
