Kicking Myself
Monday, January 18, 2021      10 comments

So...I made an angel food cake for DH for his little birthday party yesterday at our daughter's. I used partly Splenda. I filled it with lemon curd that I also made with half Splenda. Then I covered with whipped cream (his favorite 'icing'). ... Read more

Here we go! I am starting at a place I'd hoped not to get back to this holiday season. But, in combination with pandemic overeating, I enjoyed cooking, baking and also enjoying goodies we received from a few others. Now I'm back on track and ... Read more

I'm tempted to say Happy 2020 and try for a do over. But, since that won't work, I so look forward to the good things 2021 will bring... I hope and pray for new and renewed friendships, success of the vaccines, love growing between a... Read more
Challenging start to my week
Monday, December 07, 2020      4 comments

I hopped on the scale this morning and was floored. I had gained several pounds in only two days....not really possible. Then I noticed my swollen feet and legs. I (almost) never swell so that is a concern. Tried to drink extra water and cof... Read more

I'm enjoying doing the eight-week challenges again. But, for now we are in the in-between. These times are not so taxing in the recording and yet we have the encouragement from our team members just the same. I'm doing less well right now, bu... Read more

DH doing better since getting his stent out after kidney stone surgery 11 days ago (stent out this morning). I walked to nearby mall and found lots of good things to get some charity baskets started. Got in about 10,000 steps doing that so sho... Read more

Today was a bit of a challenge as I tried to exercise with some intensity. I hit the wall practically before I started. MS exacerbation does not agree with my plans. So, I've decided to go day by day focusing on doing what I can and not worry... Read more
Brrr...!!! An indoor day for me!
Monday, October 26, 2020      7 comments

A good day to exercise indoors. So, the thermometer said it was only 16*F. when I got up today. So, I challenged myself to walk at least 1,000 steps per hour for at least 10 hours today. So far, so good. Four hours in and I have more than 4... Read more
Cold snap...or is this winter?
Thursday, October 22, 2020      6 comments

We had such beautiful warm days this fall and suddenly it dropped below freezing last night. I walked both outdoors and indoors today. First, I met a friend for coffee and walked a bit....cold and windy. Later, after two zoom meetings I had t... Read more

It's practice week to get us in the swing of posting how we are doing day by day, week by week. A recent ms exacerbation has gotten in the way of some of my physical activity, but I am getting back to being able to do more the last few days. I... Read more
A tough few days!

On Sunday I got both my second shingles vaccine and the flu shot. My doctor had told me not to get them together, but I forgot (MS brain does that!). Anyway, by Sunday night I had a 103* fever and hurt everywhere. Even today I continue to fee... Read more
Trying not to slip during the in between
Tuesday, September 01, 2020      8 comments

The summer 5% challenge finished and it is awhile until the fall challenge. So, I signed up for the in-between challenge. Usually after a challenge I gain back some of what I lost and I think I may be heading that way this time. But, before I... Read more
