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'm a cheese whore and smoked gouda is my favorite. A pervert could lure me into a vehicle with it. We had some awesome cheddar the other day too. Can't remember the brand but it started with a W.

LOL. Almost all liquid counts as fluids. Alcohol is in a different category unfortunately. Having to drink 8 glasses of fluid a day is basically B.S. anyway and most doctors will tell you that. You should go by the look of your pee and the smell. Nothing like spending your day pee monitoring and huffing it. I have nice pee though. LOL.

LOL. Yes, I know I'm evil but I can't help it. A woman I worked with said I'm everyone's id. I express the nasty stuff that other people think but don't have the guts to say. LOL. Better out than in.
You are a maintainer. You never get too far out of hand. LOL.

Happy New Year to you too!! Your video was a welcome breath of fresh air in a sea of rabid, pseudo-motivated, January super-dieters. I always look forward to the end of January when most of them are gone.

LOL!! The video worked! Benny says that Doxie is very interested in the bed and she loves is - he says she is fluffing it. My take on it - better buy some Petromalt as some fibers may get ingested. LOL. Benny also said you need to get into the bed with her and put the old bed inside the new bed. I explained to him that there are already two girls for the new bed and three is a crowd. What does Roxie think of it?
