I did pretty well today on exercise and eating. I wanted to have a really long walk after dinner, but instead it was just under 1.5 miles. When I was posting it, I remembered that it was not too long ago that a walk that long would have been i... Read more

This weekend I really crashed and burned. Yesterday was the first day with no workout at all since I don't know when, and today I ate all kinds of garbage. I finally picked myself back up this evening and went for a walk. I think tomorro... Read more

I had a lot happen yesterday, not just the Olive Garden disaster. Here was another outstanding moment. I went to Catherine's to get some new pants. The ones I bought in November are getting pretty loose. Well, I am too small for Catherin... Read more

Today was a good day of running around, errands and exercise. For lunch my son and I went to Olive Garden. I wanted seafood, and one of the choices was seafood alfredo which we all know is poison. I was still thinking about it, but then... Read more

If you look on the front of my Spark Page, you will see that my little island ticker is FINALLY past the first tick mark on the bar. A few weeks ago I blogged about how long it took for that little thing to move off of the "Start" word. I was ... Read more

I've eaten tofu before in restaurants, but today was the first time I tried to cook it. I did a stir fry with garlic, onions, carrots, celery, baby corn and water chestnuts. I used some hot sauce and turmeric for the spices. I could only find... Read more
