Halfway Through the Month and My Challenge

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

It is not just tax day, it is a tallying day for me. The best thing I did these 15 days was to make sure I put my SPAT on and try my best to keep moving. Some days I was limited by some physical limitations, but only a few.

I have still not conquered getting enough fiber in 'every' day, but I have on some days. The next 15 days I want to concentrate more on that since that is where I am lacking. I can look on what I have done so far and feel good about it -- not great -- but good. Still have the twins birthday this month and, of course, Easter. Hoping it will not derail me. I can only blame 'me' if I get off track, not the celebrations!

Have a great rest of the month, All!

    Fiber one cereals helped me get enough fiber. That or the clear benefiber that you can sprinkle on or mix into things.

My challenge is getting enough carbs.

Chew On This As You File Your Taxes

Monday, April 14, 2014



When NASA started sending astronauts into space, they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside-down, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.




The Russians used a pencil.

* * * * * * *

One pencil can write a line up to 35 miles long OR 45,000 words or compose 138 songs. And when you are trying to figure something out, it makes a great 'chew' toy.

Happy Tax Time!!!

Dawning a Lovely Day Here

Sunday, April 13, 2014

We are on the edge of the Poconos and it is dawning a lovely day. Will be at least 70 and possibly more today. Last meeting will be this AM. Heading home after lunch today. We had to stop twice on the way over due to having trouble with the windshield wiper. We almost lost it. It rained almost the whole way over. Some heavy downpours to light showers and maybe a let up twice. Thank God for a safe trip down. April is doing well at son's house.

Our hostess made lasagna last night after early evening meeting and, of course, it was so absolutely delicious I had a second helping. But, I had a nice bunch of salad, too. Probably will have to fast at least two days to get rid of the extra. Oh, yah!

Have great Sunday, All!

    Glad it was a successful trip. The lasagna sounds so good I think I'd give into temptation, too.

Day ten of my self challenge. emoticon

Way over on my carbs--according to what I wanted to do. Darn pasta anyway! Oh, well, got spinach and cukes in, banana and protein and fit my two chocolate kisses in at dinner. Reached my step goal and two workouts. More great days than good this week!

This weekend we are going away. That may be a whole different story! Should be able to get my steps in though.

Have a good night, All!

Na Na Na Na Nine!

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Those old songs that went something like this are running through my mind right now. Like: NaNaNaNa NaNaNaNa Dip Dip Dip DO AAAAAAAAAAAAAA Shanananana Shanananana OoooooWeeeeee Do Wacka Do Wacka Do

Na Na Na usually means 'no' when someone is using that in conversation. This is day 9 of trying to do better for me and thus far today, I have more than 10,000 steps and am right on with the tracker. It is not Na Na Na with me. It is emoticon emoticon emoticon

I really needed to do more activity and I think the SPAT has been a great encouragement for me. My Sheltie is interested in watching it light up, too.

Glowing, glowing, glowing, glowing on!
