Met a Goal
Saturday, June 23, 2018 14 comments
Today I reached the goal I had for the trip - down to 160! It feels good to be consistently losing again. I know the reasons, too - I'm consistently exercising and consistently NOT grazing in the evenings. Those two things alone have made a big ... Read more

Ouch! Yesterday, I got the first of the vaccine shots I need before I leave for Kenya in 18 days. It was a 4-pack of polio, tetanus, dyptheria and something else. In 10 days, I'll get the yellow fever and hepatitis A shots. I also got malaria pr... Read more

2017 - New Year, trying again! 5% Challenge starts today but I've already started on my way down. Too hard to choose one word so I'm focussing attention this year on words that start with "Re-", like RENEWAL and RESUME - as in commitment and goo... Read more

So much for that October resolution! I will do better! I've been to Switzerland and back. It was an awesome retreat, as it is every year. What was special this time around was the large number of "newbies" and the way in which members of the org... Read more
