March Ahead
Saturday, February 29, 2020      0 comments

It's been quite a while since I have done a blog. More of a journal person, I guess. But, every month's beginning has me wanting to make my list of objectives or intentions for the month ahead. And so, in that spirit, I will repeat many thing... Read more
November - Better than October
Thursday, October 31, 2019      0 comments

I'd say October was a success in ending the year in a good state. Could have been better...but I say I did fair to middlin. I started reading at night - missed a few nights, but I started. Dog walks were the same. Better than half the month.... Read more
Best Ending of the Year
Tuesday, October 01, 2019      2 comments

1st day of the last quarter of the year. As I state so often - how has the year gone by so quickly? My last blog entry was just before MIL issues started. Handling this situation has taken the majority of my time and mental stamina since then... Read more
April 6 ... 6 minutes jogging
Saturday, April 06, 2019      0 comments

I did this in 2 minute intervals - so 3 times...and I had to make up for April 4 & 5 as work was pretty intense with traveling these 2 days and I did not make it out there. That's part of my emerging rules for this April challenge. I CAN skip ... Read more

I made it back to Cardio Tone today. Good class. The instructor mentioned a challenge she threw out to her daughter once at the beginning of a month - do just one good pushup on the 1st. And add one each day. Well - that doesn't really inter... Read more
Unconditional Love with High Expectations
Saturday, March 02, 2019      1 comments

We attended my friend's sister's memorial service yesterday. The eulogy included a statement that she was a mother who loved her children unconditionally, but had extremely high expectations of them. That statement struck home with me. My hus... Read more

Today, I followed through on my desire to get back to my mountain walks. I must admit it was not an intentional move - just that things worked out and I decided to finally follow through. I had forgotten how challenging the climb up can be. It... Read more

Friday, February 01, 2019      1 comments

1 month into the year - how am I doing with my 19 habits for 2019? Overall, ok - but since I am UP 2 lbs this month, obviously I am not doing something right. Looking over my 19 habits, the following are ones I have forgotten about/not done we... Read more

My birthday was yesterday. So hard to believe I am as old as I am. Before Christmas, I went to a thrift store to buy the dogs their stuffed animals - and found a couple books I put in my son's and my stockings. His was "How to live successfull... Read more
December Ahead - Be Happy
Friday, November 30, 2018      0 comments

As I say every month when I blog - How did the month go by so quickly? How did this year speed by? Being sick for 3 weeks this past month did not help - other than to allow me to not feel guilty for slowing down a bit. Hopefully I have re... Read more
November - Steady to the End
Friday, November 02, 2018      1 comments

October passed by without any notable weight fluctuations. BUT - I did stay consistent with exercise and eating habits. I gave up my apparent addiction to LaCroix (I guess I am influenced by questionable news...not sure I believe the claims, b... Read more
October...Serious October?
Sunday, September 30, 2018      2 comments

My 'Kind' September feels like a bust as far as weight loss is concerned. I'm at the same place I was 2 months ago. Heading into the last quarter of the year, time for a serious October. Serious planning. Serious effort. Serious commitment.... Read more
The Kind of September
Monday, September 03, 2018      0 comments

I vaguely remember seeing my older sister's high school acting group put on the Fantastics and hearing one of the guys sing that song. I have no clue what the play was about - nor the song, but it pops into my head at least once every year in S... Read more

I hate repeating myself...but another month already over? This year (this life) is moving way too quickly. And, again, I hate repeating myself...over and over and over again...but - here I am stating the same goals and at the same weight. ... Read more
