This program played an important part in my weight loss/maintenance journey. It was kind of like discovering SP and both happened in 2009 when I finally got serious about eating healthy. I’m not a milk drinker, but I do like yogurt – lot... Read more
Looking back I’d rather have been “skinny fat”

Although that’s become a pejorative term, here’s my reasoning. We all begin our journey to a healthy lifestyle at a different starting point. I totally accept the need for increasing muscle mass and reducing fat, but I’m beginning to wonde... Read more

I watch Elementary and CSI so I wonder how this might have come about. When out running or walking, I often come across discarded or lost stuff. Usually it’s just ciga... Read more

When the aerobics instructor and the backup are both sick, you improvise Last week we “regulars” arrived at the gym for the 9:15 aerobics/weights class to discover that we did not have an instructor. We had options. We could have just put... Read more

First, I must make it clear that I enjoy BOTH walking and running. I believe both are beneficial to your health and would never call either one BETTER. Which I choose to do depends on the circumstances. Lately, however, I’ve come across a... Read more

Just the 2 of us and a 20 pound turkey
Friday, April 05, 2013 18 comments
DH can’t resist a sale. He likes to get his “money’s worth.’ Usually the big sales are on highly processed or junk food, but at holidays I can always count on a BIG turkey. Sometimes we have company to help us eat it, but it doesn’t matte... Read more
Goodbye heart rate monitors
Thursday, April 04, 2013 18 comments
I just gave away TWO Polar Heart Rate Monitors. I dropped them off at my local running store. It wasn’t the kind of thing you just take to Goodwill. Most people wouldn’t even know what they were. The running store sponsors activities like co... Read more

Finally something useful about infomercials and commercials in general
Saturday, March 30, 2013 11 comments
DH & I usually just record our favorite TV shows. We discovered that when watching “live” we tend to fall asleep and never see the conclusion. This is especially true during the last 15 minutes of a show where the ads are bunched together . I... Read more
What do you think this is? A bag of dirt? Dog food?
