Lately I’ve been feeling like this ship has run it’s course. It started out fun and then it started to feel like work and then I thought, “Woah – this is a blog – not a job!” I don’t think it should ever, ever feel like work around here – this is my hobby! So I’m bidding Weekend Diversions farewell for now. That doesn’t mean … Continue reading (The Last) Weekend Diversions (For Now)
It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blog land anyway.

So how many weeks now have I been recording, “Yup gained back the pound I lost last week,” and then vowed to do better. I think the reason I’ve been failing so miserably is because I refuse to accept a few certainties in my life. The main thing being I suck at consistency and I don’t do diets.
