Binge eating and beyond
Friday, September 07, 2018      1 comments

I have been thinking about that darn binge thing. I hope I am past that point in my life. Binges occur because we deny ourselves something and then we get to that volcano moment when we just BLOW and eat with total abandon. Post binge we feel... Read more

I try not to judge people. It's hard sometimes. Maybe it's in our fallen nature. I saw a woman at the gym recently who looked old and haggard, she probably wasn't old, just looked it. She was wearing a black athletic skirt, black skinny top a... Read more

I am a Costco member and the magazine came in the mail yesterday. I generally read bits and pieces of it however this issue had an article about Angela Duckworth. I found the article very interesting and plan to order her book through my librar... Read more

Today I posted a new Spark Streak, exercised 60 days in a row. Not bad for a 68 year old that has been recovering her body from a spine fracture. Not bad for anybody!!! My thought here is, there is a momentum to doing the good things for your... Read more

I'm doing the 5% Summer Challenge and it's coming down to the wire. I really want to hit goal. It's not looking good but NEVER GIVE UP! Yesterday, I stepped on the scale and my weight was up. I went into panic mode. I felt all those stupid, ... Read more
I had it....no, it's gone

I had this great quote to throw into today's blog, it's gone, I can't find it in my journal. The basic gist of it was that little changes add up to big changes. I went back over some of my journal entries and realized I really have come a long ... Read more
Don't you wish....pulling the thought processes in the proverbial circle
Monday, August 13, 2018      0 comments

Monday morning and I'm having a "pull the wagons in a circle" moment. I always loved the wild west t.v. shows as a kid and the "pulling the wagons in a circle" when night was falling or trouble lurked concept. This morning, with only 2 weeks le... Read more
Green things in my water!

The dog days of summer. Yes, just the phrase strikes fear to my very core. First, it means another summer is coming to end. I feel so sorry for my German Shepherd, dog days are miserable. A short walk this a.m and he was done. Apparently in F... Read more
Non scale Victory
Wednesday, August 08, 2018      2 comments

Feeling tiny....LOL, is something I experience every once in a while. It usually does NOT involve a mirror. I hit one of those moments and decided I should weigh and measure. The scale had not been my friend after multiple days of staycation ... Read more

Getting poked with a stick
Sunday, July 29, 2018      1 comments

Strange title for a blog, right? When I was a child, we spent a lot of time out in nature. Finding some critter lying in the woods we might poke it with a stick to get a reaction. No reaction dead, if not dead it might fly or scurry away. That'... Read more

I tweaked and tweaked and tweaked my nutrition today till I am blue in the face. Dilemma is that my sister and her husband are coming in late (for me 1130 p.m., for them 2 hours earlier, coming from a western time zone) and I am picking them up... Read more
Walking the dog, ponderings
Thursday, July 26, 2018      2 comments

"Walking the Dog" was a song back in the mid 60's by Rufus Thomas. Funny! My dog is selectively smart. In the morning, I have certain routines and he really gets that. He knows when I am getting up to go to the bathroom as opposed to getting... Read more
Heart attacks and other ramblings
Sunday, July 22, 2018      0 comments

Friday, my son received a call from his step mother, to report that his dad, my ex, had a heart attack. "He will be OK" was the report, as OK as one can be after a heart attack with 99% blockage of one vessel and stents placed. Shocking and so... Read more
