Wow! I'm 66 pages into the 318-page book "KEEP SHARP Build a Better Brain at Any Age" by Dr. Sanjay Gupta. I thought I was inspired to healthier living when I read "Diabesity - The Obesity-Diabetes Epidemic That Threatens America--And What We ... Read more

Since FIL passed last July and MIL has been in a nursing 3-1/2 hours away in their hometown, DH and I have her mail forwarding to us. She gets a Good Housekeeping magazine. I thought about mailing it to her at the nursing home, but the staff tel... Read more

Haven't weighed in a month. To quote Ron White, well except the ugly, words - it's cold, it's dark and I don't wanna. LOL Could tell I had gained some and was playing ostrich. If I don't weigh, I don't know if I gained. Have this program th... Read more

I would have used the show title "Iyanla, Fix My Life" as the name of my blog, but wasn't sure if that was against SP law. The plumbers have been h... Read more

Five days off because our company is requiring all employees to take at least that many days of vacation before the end of June. I've been working alternate days in the office (by myself) and the other days remotely. My coworker is doing the s... Read more
Bad case of the I-don't-want-to's

I don't know if it's human nature, or just my nature, but whenever I have wonderful blocks of free time where I can exercise, stretch, tackle a project, connect, read something enlightening ... I DON'T WANT TO. There's a g-zillion articles on S... Read more
A better ending

DH just went to work and I'm off until Thursday. I've been reading blogs and comments about plans for new beginnings. They are all encouraging and inspiring. While pondering some of these, I realized that I'm grateful for a better ending. No... Read more
Which direction am I going?
Thursday, December 05, 2019      6 comments

It's been slow, (like years) but I’m down 108 pounds and have kept it off. 27 of those pounds came this year. I’m not there yet. I still have more short, mid and long-term goals to accomplish in the weight loss department. I’ve been dow... Read more

I do love Christmas. Of course, what it means to me has evolved over my lifetime. I don't buy a single gift. Nothing to wrap or fret over. Well, we get our forty-something kids gift cards. They live in 3 different states and all are unmarri... Read more
Crossing the goal line

Watching the Arkansas Razorback football team tonight NOT crossing the goal line got me thinking about my goal lines. I want so badly to get below 200 lbs. Although I've lost over a hundred lbs already, I can't seem to make the push over the n... Read more

I haven't been highly motivated lately. Don't know why, but this is not unusual for me. Fact is, it happens periodically and I'm always a little puzzled. I really think I spend too much time pondering the "why" (which just distracts me from ... Read more
Cry me a river, or was it drink me a river?
Thursday, May 24, 2018      7 comments

I keep making forays into being a water drinker. Not that I don't like water, but getting to a good amount on a daily basis feels as insurmountable as, well, drinking a river. As a work buddy would say, "Geez, oh, Pete!" I've seen recom... Read more
It's the big one, Elizabeth
Saturday, September 16, 2017      6 comments

Showing my age here, but I always got a chuckle out of Redd Foxx in Sanford and Son when he would fake heart attacks to try and get his way. He would clutch his chest and say different variations of "It's the big one, Elizabeth. I'm coming," t... Read more
