Welcome to our place! Relax with us by the pool and watch the puppies romp. Come take a walk with me at sunrise and sunset--the sky here goes on forever! No wonder they decorate with pink and blue in Florida--that's the color of the vast cloud mounds in the sky, where the lightning plays at any time of day. You never know what might be going on around here, but good food, friends, characters, physical activity, and my thoughts, goals, and interests of the moment are going to be part of it.
When I first joined SparkPeople 10 years ago, I think, I'd seen my weight creeping up and decided that I needed to be more aware of what I was eating and how much I was exercising.
Well, it just happened again!
Having a weekly restaurant news column in the local paper is NOT a great method of self-control.
Note to self: It's never okay to just eat and drink whatever you damn please!
Make sure to eat at least SOME breakfast every day, for a kick-start!
Walk a total of 5 miles, 10,000 steps, a day.
Eat only when hungry and stop when full. (This is NOT easy, by the way.)
Do daily pilates-type exercises to keep my hips and back limber.
Upper-body weight training every other day.
68, with an emotional age of about 36
Went from 172 in February 2005 to a low of 111 several summers ago (much too low for me)
Now aiming to lose at least 10 pounds, mainly to fit into more of my clothes and have a flatter tummy.
This, too, isn't always easy, because of the abovementioned newspaper gig and Bill's great cooking.
My passions lately are writing and getting to be expert in the local restaurant scene. Retirement is proving far busier than full-time employment!

I am dealing with a fairly moody hubby who is playing very melancholic music on his guitar. Things like this cause men to realize they are not immortal.

Suzy so glad to see you're still here. I've been gone a while but I need to get myself back on track so I've returned. I hope you're well and still loving life.

In the past I felt the same way about Fall that you did for the same reason - it leads to winter but I am determined to keep positive. We have lucked out the past few winters compared to some we have had where I almost lost my mind. I probably will never like winter but I have proven I can tolerate it.
Have you experienced any problems with hurricanes? I still would love to have a place in Florida but maybe not too close to the coast and on higher ground. This last hurricane scared me. I should have been scared by Katrina but wasn't.
Love you too and think about you a lot. Got your Xmas card and loved the update!

hee hee Sue, I personally loved the egyptian hieroglyphic. The longer I work for the hospital the less I care for the medical profession. But the Plato quote was pretty good too!
