I feel like I have been baking cookies since forever. I remember digging out mom's cookbooks growing up and trying all the cookie and cookie bar recipes. I was so excited when she got the new better homes and garden cookbook. I honestly think I used it more than she did...

I took out a journal today that I had started last year...I've been wanting to kick start that habit again but have been paralyzed in starting so. I think partially because of what I'm afraid will come out on paper. I'm going to have to face my own struggles, fears and weaknesses. But you can't get "better" if you don't try or start somewhere. That is what I have told HUNDREDS of people when they embark on their fitness journey - so it's time I take my own advice in life.

"Are you ok?" - I don't know how to even properly answer that. I had even PRAYED for the day to come that she could find relief from Alzheimer's disease, but when the day actually arrives it is more painful and more sad than I can begin to even describe.
