MIA For a Good Reason

Hello!  I promise I'm alive and I haven't gone and quit and gained ten more pounds.  

I've just been a little busy with a new venture....

Last Friday I opened my first Etsy shop!

DentalFlossLane is now open for business selling fabric Midori-style traveler's notebooks.  
I fell in love with these about a year ago, made a few for friends over the past year and decided to try selling them. 

I will have a post up on the shop's blog (DentalFlossLane.com) explaining what a Midori is by the end of this week.  

If you're into planners, journaling, traveling, etc. you'd really like one of these traveler's notebooks.  The inserts are interchangeable, so you are limited to using it for one year, occasion etc, but can take out the old inserts and put new ones in as needed. 

Anyway, that's for the descriptive post I am writing...  :) 

As far as my health, I have not lost any weight, but I have kept up on going to BodyPump classes 3 times a week and a spin class 1 day a week.  

Eating has been so-so.  I have good days/hours and then not-so-good days/hours, which is why the lack of loss. 

Monday I had a revelation of an old habit that has snuck back in; something I haven't experienced since before I started losing weight in 2009.  Having this habit brought to my attention by something I read has been helpful in me getting back on track.  Someday I will explain. 

I think of many of you often...especially when I'm feeling so silly lifting my light weights in BodyPump and I know you would all encourage me to simply keep going.  :)

I hope you are well.  I am well.  I am keeping busy and working more on keeping busy with my family and shop and not with browsing the pantry. 

Thanks for stopping by! 

p.s.  Thank you Jodie for checking in on me last week.  (hug)


  1. Phew! Glad you are okay! I'm so envious of etsy store owners...I appreciate the ability to craft and create, but I don't have the ability! Glad you are still BodyPumping. I went yesterday and was glad I spoke up to the instructor about my form on kickbacks. I was having all sorts of trouble with them and it turned out I was just pulling my shoulder up too high!!

    1. Jodie, I thought I replied to this... I also spoke to my trainer about an issue. I'm learning about all kinds of things in BodyPump. :-)

  2. congrats on the Etsy store! I hope it does well for you :D

    1. Thank you, Lori! This is a first for me. Whee!
