The Importance of a Checklist

The Importance of a Checklist For those that prefer to read: This morning I woke up with a whole list of things that I wanted to accomplish.  I’m a little “out of order” for how my Thursdays usually work because what’s ‘normal’ is that I hike, pretty much first thing.  But this morning, I need to replenish the Vanilla elfbites supply and I want to bake before hiking.  So rather than try to be beautiful for this video blog, I’m in my hiking clothes – ready to bake elfbites and wanting to cram everything possible, into this morning. Today I want to talk about the importance...

When New becomes Ordinary

When New becomes Ordinary When I get used to something, it just becomes ordinary.  I’m not as focused on it, I don’t take as much care when using it, and I don’t clean it quite as much.  Because it’s not new anymore! I remember when we bought our first house… it had that new carpet and paint smell – until I burnt a roast in the oven so badly that it permeated the very core of the fibers in the carpet!  Although, it may be that the fibers of the carpet were ruined by the cleaning solution we used to get the red lipstick my 1½ year old had colored with, from our guest’s purse she had left at the front door. Or the new...

Oh no, I wrecked it!

Oh no, I wrecked it! I was holding a half-eaten ciabatta roll in my hand only to realize that I had just consumed part of a roast beef and cheese Panini with spicy brown mustard, and was about to take another bite. How could I just have eaten it and not been aware?  What was I thinking?  Obviously, not much!  The disappointment at not reaching my goal of 1 year without Wheat, Sugar and mostly no Corn was huge.  How does one ‘accidentally’ eat something?   Especially something so crunchy, yet soft, crisp, yet creamy; all at the same time?  How does someone miss that? And how would I tell all of the people that...

The Accountability Factor

The Accountability Factor This morning I woke up and headed over to my closet to get dressed to go hiking.  As I was looking for the flashlight button for my phone, I noticed a text from my hiking partner saying she wouldn’t be able to hike because she had to get to the office early. And the fight began.  Not with her!  The one in my head. ‘It’s 5:30 in the morning!  It’s dark.  Windy.  Cold.  She’s not coming – you could just go back to bed where it’s warm.  You could go later…’  But I knew.  I knew I wouldn’t go later, because if I didn’t go at our normal time, I wouldn’t be able to go at all. I texted my friend...

The Most Difficult Thing…

The Most Difficult Thing… Yesterday I met my sister at our “place” – a coffee shop halfway between our homes.  She asked what the hardest thing about ‘no sugar, no flour and mostly no corn’ was for me.  At the time, I was pretty confident and couldn’t think of anything difficult enough for me to even consider taking a taste of ‘contraband’. What I said was that it wasn’t that difficult because the decision had already been made ahead of time.  That the most difficult time had been the 5 days between September 23rd and September 28th when I was trying to decide whether I would go for the challenge or not.  And for the...
