Friday, February 19, 2021      11 comments

I have had limited internet access for a while and it seems weird to be back on line. Today, was the most I have been on line at one time for about 1 month. It can be a time waster or time to get stuff done. Not being online makes me reali... Read more

I found some leftover reflectix laying around and made a Koozy for my thermos that I take when I go on a hike. I did a hike in the woods and after about 1-1/2 hours my hot cocoa that I made was still on the hot side. So, it sort of worked, my th... Read more

OMG! I am not sure what possessed me to want a puppy - oh, yeah I wanted a hiking/camping companion. My daughter had a friend that was giving away a german Shepherd/Labrador mix - Perfect I thought. She is sweet, cuddly and a bully. She is... Read more

The Winter Warrior challenge suggested a Winter Picnic -- something I had been wanting to do for some time now. Finally, I got motivated to do one. I packed a lunch, loaded up my backpack and headed for the woods. I live where there are som... Read more

I have been weighing myself on 2 different scales and this morning I stepped on one that I have not used since Dec 14, 2020 -- to my surprise I am at that weight this morning. This is encouraging because I was gaining. Time to refocus... Read more
I failed at extreme budget meal shopping
Sunday, January 03, 2021      8 comments

Well, I have been watching these extreme budget meal plans -- $10,00 for a week of meals. That is per person, so I decided to help my sister out and told her I would shop for for her for the week. I went over budget and she had all the big ticke... Read more

I don't know what happened to "Make the Last the Best" -- I am totally off my eating and exercise plan. But to turn a negative into a positive - I still have 4 days left to smarten up and get with a plan -- at this stage, any plan will do, Just ... Read more
Make the last the best
Thursday, December 03, 2020      8 comments

Yesterday, I saw some one post something about making December the best month for meeting goals and that reminded my running intervals and when it came to the last one, I always said, "Make the last the best" -- That is going to be my motto for ... Read more
weight gain, winter predictor?
Saturday, November 21, 2020      8 comments

UGH! Doing the 5% challenge and I think I have it backwards and have gained again this week. I have been seeing some fat squirrels running around. I heard that you can tell how hard of a winter it will be by looking at the wild life - fat squirr... Read more

Power of 1
Wednesday, November 11, 2020      4 comments

I heard a lecture yesterday about the power of 1 -- focus on making on change at a time. But the one to pick is the one that will have the most impact and will make other changes fall into place. Also that it takes about 66 days to make a new ha... Read more
Leaves leaves and more leaves
Sunday, November 08, 2020      6 comments

I have so much to do and my motivation is almost zilch. We are having some warm weather and I really need to get those leaves raked ( I have a huge yard on a wooded lot). Plus the trees are a mixture of red and white oak - this means one drops t... Read more
Chilly morning
Tuesday, November 03, 2020      7 comments

I woke up early this morning and when I step outside I found myself heading down the road to the lake. I was hoping for a sunrise photo --- every time I am on time for a sunrise or sunset there is no clouds. So, I did not get a good photo of a s... Read more
5% challenge
Sunday, November 01, 2020      2 comments

I received the email about the missed weigh-in and wondered if I actually forgot to do that because last week time went into a black hole for me and I lost track of what day it was. I did post my weigh-in and this morning I took a look at ... Read more
Where did the week go?
Saturday, October 31, 2020      3 comments

I cannot believe it is Saturday already -- I completely lost the week. I am trying to disconnect a bit from the internet and it seems I lost all track of time. Must be because I am not seeing the date on the postings.... Read more
