Let’s see if this works…. March 29, 2012

So, I have actually been trying to post but this WordPress app or maybe it’s just WordPress, wouldn’t cooperate. I did pretty good on my goals last week and felt much better about life in general because of it.
I made it to the city council meeting, I reduced the amount of garbage I produced and started composting again, I walked the dogs more. My greatest focus of the week was on pleasure and enjoyment and I totally rocked that one! Details to come if this will post….


A pinterest inspired project- finally! March 19, 2012

As is most everyone else, I am completely enamored with pinterest. There are just so many great ideas! I have been pinning and pinning and pinning for months without much action, but I finally did a project. The thing I saw on pinterest used bigger letters and just said “EAT” but I liked this idea better. I debated and asked for some opinions on whether it was too cheesy at this point, but the general opinion was that it was too lovely to be cheesy 🙂 I envisioned all the words in a line on the top shelf of my baker’s rack but they didn’t fit, so I now need to find a new home for them. So, without further ado…..


My goals for the week. March 18, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jessica @ 8:47 pm

1. Delight myself and remember to take pleasure in all the little things.

2.Walk the pups every night it is not raining.

3.Eat whole, real foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday! (This also means I will be cooking)

4.Produce less garbage-1 Bag or less this week.

5. Read daily

6. See a friend

7. Go to the city council meeting about the library.

These are all small things but they are essentials on my “what makes a good life” list. They are all manageable and almost every single one adds more pleasure to my life instead of more stress. I will check back in and let you know how it’s going. ❤


One week.

So I am having a really hard time with focus and commitment these days or maybe I am just overwhelmed by the big picture…. Either way, I need to find a way to make it work, make myself work, in spite of it. I don’t really feel I am doing much right now to build the future I want and I am also not really enjoying the present as much as I should because I am too worried about the future. It just needs to stop. I am committing to one week of living the life I want without excuses. I can do one week. I can commit to another week when it’s over. One week is manageable. I am not even sure why it is difficult since the life I want to be living is pretty fucking great. I just get caught up in habits, routines and just plain laziness. I am going to spend some time today setting some goals and planning the things I love or need into my week. I’ll be back to share.

Time to make coffee.


Let’s try this again…. March 6, 2012

It seems that the WordPress app on my phone may finally be working properly so I am going to give regular blogging another try. Instead of trying to have such a narrow focus of food and my attempts at living a healthy lifestyle, I am just going to write about life and all of it’s delicious bits ❤
