Who would have ever thought we could get excited about going for a SHOT!? We woke Wednesday morning and that was the first thought for both of us - today we get our second shot. Afterwards my husband declared he felt invincible! Of course, we... Read more

When I woke this morning, my first thought was - "This is February 4th. I'm going to remember this date, because today I am going to get serious about my health." My old body hurts! I need to be doing stretches and exercises every day. As so... Read more
The Wheels on this Bus!
Friday, November 20, 2020      5 comments

I feel like the wheels on this bus are going round and round and getting nowhere! Every time I think I have a helpful passenger on board, they up and leave. Uh oh, there went "journaling". They just got on, for crying out loud. "No grazing, ... Read more
Missed a Day on My Streak!
Wednesday, September 09, 2020      3 comments

Oh, woe is me! Today would have been day 32 of a streak of no grazing snacking, but yesterday I had almost a full meal's worth of calories for a snack! I tracked it and I didn't go over my count for the day, but it would seem like cheating to ... Read more

My husband and I lost a long time, very dear friend several years ago. He and his wife had no children and we had, through the years, come to one another's aid innumerable times. In her later years, his mother lived with him after his wife's d... Read more
Variety is the Spice of Life

Well, I have been accused of being "Adult Attention Deficit", among other things, but I do get bored easily and I do like change - usually, well, mostly - hmm, I guess it really depends upon what is being changed and whose idea it is. Well that... Read more
Experiment, Day One
Friday, August 23, 2019      2 comments

Well, not sure I really nailed it on day one of no tracking and focusing on moving more. I got the moving more down pretty well, but expect I got a bit over zealous on the "eating as I felt moved to eat"! Didn't do anything really crazy or dum... Read more
Changing Horses!
Thursday, August 22, 2019      3 comments

For the last couple or three months I have worked hard at tracking my food, and I have been gaining weight. After doing this for years, both with SparkPeople and with Weight Watchers, I know how to eat properly and I know where my problems are ... Read more
What's Right on My Healthy Lifestyle Journey?
Tuesday, April 02, 2019      1 comments

Going for the positive here on this cold, rainy day; and, surprisingly, it really hasn't been too difficult. When I first sat down to do it, I wasn't sure it would even make two lines. But, I went to my exercise class this morning in a room wi... Read more
Looking Back - Again!
Friday, June 22, 2018      3 comments

My blogging history is spotty, to say the least! Today I went back and re-read my previous ones and realized that I have actually made some progress. There have been so many positive comments that have boosted my morale. This site is really a... Read more
The Days of My Life
Wednesday, May 30, 2018      1 comments

I read somewhere recently that on average, we can expect to live 30,000 days (around 82 yrs.). Started me figuring - almost 76 now, that's 27,740 days gone by, never to be retrieved. My ancestors for the past couple of generations have lived w... Read more
New Hope!

After surviving a battle with the dreaded flu (I realized it was really flu when I lost my appetite - NOTHING else ever messes with my appetite!), I stepped on the scale and it was the lowest it has been in many, many years - maybe close to 50. ... Read more
Looking Back - A Mid Year Check Up
Saturday, August 19, 2017      2 comments

Well, here it is mid August and it seemed like a good idea to look back at the goals I set for myself for this year to see how I am doing, and this is what I see: My friend and I walk at least a mile and sometimes a mile and a half 6 days most ... Read more
Thank Heaven for a Walking Buddy
Friday, December 30, 2016      3 comments

My walking friend walks no matter what - except really bad weather. If I don't call her, she calls me and unless there is an absolutely good reason, we walk. We vary our route, but whatever way we go it is between 1.5 to 2 miles. One route ha... Read more

I am feeling anchorless and drifting today - and for the past few days. This morning I weigh 168.4. I have quit my afternoon graze. I routinely have only 8 oz of wine in the evening with my pretzels - down from probably 3 times as much wine in a... Read more
