Back from another two week stint of out-of-town nanny duty for my great-niece. Love, love, love spending time with her and nurturing her at home so she doesn't have to go to daycare quite yet. Also love having the opportunity to help out my ni... Read more
Not tomorrow - today!
Do you struggle with an inner voice who encourages you to give in to poor eating habits? The one who insists we finish up all the treats before turning over that new leaf? That surely tomorrow would be a better day to start over? etc. etc. I ... Read more
Just spent two weeks as "nanny" for my now 3 month old great-niece. Her mother returned to her teaching position and her daddy works out-of-town the entire week throughout the road construction season. Fortunately, one of my DS and I are retir... Read more
So what is this "self love" stuff?
The term "self love" appears in articles and comments here on SP and elsewhere. I have to admit, I was never quite clear on exactly what it meant and its impact on our health. This morning I read a blog titled "Does loving yourself lead to w... Read more

Piglet's size didn't get in his way
Ah yes - the wisdom of A.A. Milne and all his characters. Right up there with Dr. Seuss. In my "hey day," I considered myself to be quite knowl... Read more
Will I be able to walk tomorrow?
Last fall I joined our brand new "Y" in anticipation of needing to stretch my exercise horizons especially once winter arrived. I've spent most of the past few years getting my steps by walking with only a 1X/week yoga class for a bit of stretc... Read more
How SP changes my world
I made a couple of new friends today and joined a new team - all thanks to SP! And, on top of that, I "found" them through the blog of another of my SP friends. And that's how our community works. We share. We support. We brighten each oth... Read more
Excuses, excuses, excuses
It's amazing how many excuses I can come up with for straying from my healthy plan. The latest has been the second phase of dental surgery. Well, I had myself a little pity party while I was eating soft foods and let those simple carbs take ov... Read more
How to change the world
Topics for blogs came and went through my head over the past month but obviously none were written (it's been over a month?? yikes!) I have been hibernating. It's a luxury of being retired and living where the weather can be frightful. I enj... Read more
What is the #1 thing preventing us from losing weight?
