Stress and a Trigger Food
Tuesday, July 23, 2013      6 comments

Stress reared its ugly head and I tried to eat my way out of it! That is not what I intended, but that is what happened. Of course, eating that whole bag of candy only added to my stress! Maybe if I had decided to binge on celery that would ha... Read more

Kids are coming home for the weekend, and the little ones should have fun with the almost 5-week-old kittens. It won't be 90 here but I'm hoping it doesn't rain all weekend so the kids can play outside some in the fresh air. We have irises and... Read more

A Healthy Body (not just weight)
Saturday, May 11, 2013      3 comments

If my muscles were firm and toned, not just hidden under a too thick layer of fat, it would be more likely that I would have a healthy body. If my clothes fit well and were in "normal" sizes not the ones that begin at XL, it would be more likel... Read more

He is Filipino, and would have steamed white rice at every meal if possible. He cooks really good Filipino recipes, that are hard to turn down. Most of them have lots of veggies which is great. It's the rice that seems to be the culprit or so... Read more

First one sleeve of cookies tasted good, and then instead of picking up an apple or a little cutie I opened the other sleeve and thought coffee would be good with these. So I sat at the computer, coffee cup in hand and cookies by my side. I du... Read more

In ten years I will be 76 and my husband will be 86. Surely he will be retired by then! I don't think we will be in the home we have had for the past 45 years, but where we will be I don't know... Perhaps living closer to one of our daughters... Read more

What a wonderful machine! It helps me work, play,send and receive mail and pictures. I can communicate with friends across town, across the country or even half way round the world. I can also waste an incredible amount of time doing mundane th... Read more
Cleaning Up My Act
Tuesday, January 29, 2013      0 comments

I have a tendency to allow clutter to accumulate. When I open the mail I might separate it, recycle the junk mail, open the envelopes, deal with the bills, and leave little piles of unfinished mail on the table. When I come home from the groce... Read more
The dreaded exercises.
Sunday, January 27, 2013      0 comments

Exercise can be fun. This is only partially true for me, but I'm working at making it be so as I work through it. I think it will get better when it becomes less painful, and that will happen as I lose weight unless my knees don't get better w... Read more
