I got up early today, not only to get in my scheduled cardio, but also to do my "Spark-thing". My morning ritual of Sparkpeople and coffee has become my time to map out my day and celebrate, regroup or soldier on, depending on the circumstances... Read more

A rainy Tuesday here in SE Wisconsin. I had been busy most days doing lots of gardening, but today that was just not in the cards. I did a pretty intense ST workout yesterday, and one of my knees was a bit sore, so aerobic step training ... Read more

A good friend invited me to a performance of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" today. Not only did we enjoy a nice brunch and an amazing show, I got to meet my friend's aunt (who was completely delightful). I had such a wonderful, relaxin... Read more

I want to tell you all that I have lost weight before... Unfortunately, I have been on and off diets since I was nine years old. You remember the Atkins diet, right? Well, mom put me on it when I was nine. I was a chubby nine – not wort... Read more

Yet another branch dragging session as my cardio today. We lost a large branch from our favorite tree in the late May storms that hit SE Wisconsin. I can't complain - - we had little damage and many lost power for days and many trees were... Read more

Don't know why, but for some reason that I'm still puzzling on, I ate a large amount of ice cream after dinner - two flavors, large bowl. What are the pertinent questions here? Who? Me, obviously. What? Too much ice cream eate... Read more

Today was our annual salsa making marathon. DH is the salsa chef and I am the assistant. I prep ingredients, wash jars and clean up - whew, I'm tired! We put up 20 quarts of homemade salsa, which are a welcome addition to many foods a... Read more
2 hours of tree dragging - - ugh....
Sunday, September 18, 2011      2 comments

DH and I decided this morning that one of our many large pine trees was dead enough to cut down, de-branch, cut up the trunk and drag to a wood pile and/or a roaring fire. I have to say that I hate this particular job, and just today could ... Read more
The best talks happen in the car
Saturday, September 17, 2011      1 comments

Have you noticed that when two people are in a car together for more than an hour, that's the best time for talking? When my dad used to drive me back to college on a Sunday afternoon, I'd have the benefit of his undivided (well, except f... Read more

I was NOT in the mood to work out today - there, I said it. This does not happen to me often, and in a way, I welcome the challenge of making myself do something I don't want to do. Let's see how I'll handle this new situation, says I. I... Read more

Today, I broke out one of my old VHS tapes of sports interval training. Whew! What a workout! I'm proud to say that I kept going throught the whole thing (55 minutes), with a few modifications. For example, I'm 46, and I don't jump, under an... Read more

I got a phone call today, asking for my son. The young man on the other end of the line told me that he found my son's frisbee golf disc (it had DS's name and our home phone number written on it) and he wanted to return it. It made my da... Read more
