Project To Improve My Creativity
Tuesday, January 05, 2021      3 comments

I feel like I'm really lacking in the "creativity" department, so I decided to start a "photography" project. (I'm catsitting at someone else's home, so I don't have much with me to use for creativity - no art or craft supplies - but I do have m... Read more
Cat-sitting Lately
Monday, January 04, 2021      3 comments

I've been doing a lot of "cat-sitting" lately. I have 3 different families that I "sit" for on occasion, and 2 of them were on vacation in December. One of them was gone for 9 days, and the other is still gone for almost an entire month. So I ha... Read more
Biking More Lately
Sunday, July 26, 2020      6 comments

I've been trying to bike more lately. A couple of years ago, I bought myself a very nice bike (solely for comfort - not for speed), but never used it much until this summer. Now that I've lost quite a bit of weight, biking is more fun, although ... Read more

I've been very indecisive about what app to use to log things. I like Baritastic, since it tracks so many things that are important after bariatric surgery, & I use a Bellabeat fitness tracker, & I really like SparkPeople and have been using it ... Read more
New Thing I Tried Yesterday
Wednesday, October 16, 2019      4 comments

I work at a University, and every year around this time I see an email offering 1-2 weeks of a free exercise class for women over 40. I always intend to do it, but I either procrastinate or forget until it's too late. Now that I'm doing my Couc... Read more
