It seems so silly, yet it works. I am not a particularly competitive person. This year, my book club is having their second annual "Biggest Loser" competition, and although I am doing quite well (if I do say so myself) at getting health... Read more

DD is an organizing rockstar
Tuesday, May 31, 2011      1 comments

My DD is home for the summer, and along with her came all of the stuff that lived in her dorm room. This should come as no surprise, but somehow this year, the sea of boxes gave me a small anxiety attack. Instead of trying to clean the wh... Read more
Falling asleep with my sweetie
Monday, May 30, 2011      1 comments

So, instead of a "regular workout" today, I worked for 2 hours straight hauling large pine branches up our back hill. We lost a pine tree in last week's storms, and needed to get the debris out of the way of the dogs, lawn mower, etc. Af... Read more
Looking forward to another weekend day
Sunday, May 29, 2011      1 comments

We've had so much to do this weekend that I did not get in my regular workouts. I did do a lot of activity, both social and domestic, but not a true workout. I'm actually looking forward to a quiet day tomorrow with DH, getting a real wor... Read more
Exhausted and happy

This morning, we worked for four hours on our flower garden and it looks OK now. We're having company tomorrow, and the garden was definitely NOT presentable before this morning. Now, we're getting ready to go to an annual party our friend... Read more
I could not wait to work out today
Friday, May 27, 2011      3 comments

As this habit builds, I find that I look forward to working out. I don't love (or hate) it when I'm doing it, but I feel so energized and refreshed when I'm done. I am starting to feel real muscles in my legs and shoulders and it's prett... Read more
Oprah's impact
Wednesday, May 25, 2011      2 comments

I've watched Oprah's show my entire adult life. I'm sitting here today watching the final shows and am feeling melancholy about the end of her show. I hope that OWN does well. She enlightened so many people, as well as encouraging people... Read more
Weight-training and gardening on the same day
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      1 comments

I have a feeling that DH will have to pry me out of bed with a crowbar tomorrow. I'm certainly glad that I can do both weight-training and gardening on the same day (that I've built up the fitness level to be able to accomplish this). I fe... Read more
Surprise weight loss on vacation
Monday, May 23, 2011      3 comments

My body continues to surprise me. Each week my weigh-in day is Monday, and last week I missed it because I was on vacation. The week before I left, I kept my normal pre-vacation anxiety to a minimum by working out and keeping my nose to the gr... Read more

DH and I are back today from a fantastic vacation with friends to Santa Fe, NM. We had a wonderful time, tried many new foods, saw wonderful works of art, enjoyed many walks and adventures in a beautiful place. Also, I have found that we... Read more

I had you going for a minute there, didn't I? Not to make light of folks' beliefs, but I can't believe how much attention this rapture prediction is getting. I think that the man who predicted this just wants attention and is actually hurt... Read more

If you ever get to Santa Fe, go to the International Folk Art Museum. So many thousands of carvings, masks, textiles and more made by regular people all over the world. It's the country's largest collection and well worth the time.... Read more

Writing it all down and walking around
Thursday, May 19, 2011      1 comments

Even though I'm on vacation, I have been tracking all of my food and trying to walk a lot every day. I told myself that while on vacation, I should make good choices, but that if I have a chance to try new foods, I would go ahead and not worry ... Read more
