Thanksgiving tradition - It's baking Hoska day
Monday, November 20, 2017      8 comments

It was a tradition in my dad's family to have Hoska during the holidays. His mom, my grandmother, was Czech, and although I don't remember having it when I spent time at her house growing up, I do remember it as a holiday tradition. My dad loved... Read more

Since I broke my ankle on Sept. 4, I've mainly been doing chair exercises and swimming. Walking has been difficult for me. Don't get me wrong, those chair exercises are plenty difficult. But there's something different about getting on the ... Read more

Today was busy for a retired person. I had my first PT appointment and it was helpful. I'm hoping to regain lost strength and balance in my right foot. I met a friend for lunch at Piology (the pizza Subway place) and then had a call with someone... Read more

One of the Fall 5% challenges for Living the Good Life (LTGL) is de-cluttering. This came at a good time since I am already trying to do this. I had already started to clean out the bathroom cabinets so the challenge spurred me on. I also go ... Read more

It's hard for me not to keep pushing, especially when it comes to exercise. But today I decided I would not do anything intentional. My ankle has been bothering me so I rested. I still did some de-cluttering, more of the bathroom area which... Read more

I don't really mind it too much but like a lot of people, it usually throws me for a few days. My appetite is off, clocks aren't re-set, I'm tired. Yesterday I went for a swim and today was chair exercise. Taking EO4WELLNESS's advice as well as ... Read more

I weigh in on Monday and I had a bit of a gain this week as we headed off to Fort Bragg on the northern CA coast for our 25th anniversary. Getting organized to go on a trip, even driving, can sometimes be tiring! We were delayed a bit as we've b... Read more

that's how things can change. From hopeful to discouraged. From losing to gaining. To involved to disengaged. I'm in between all of those. I had a gain on my weigh in Monday and though I struggle not to let it discourage me, it did. We left... Read more

A goal this week was for me to exercise each day. Usually, this is not a problem for me, though if I'm training for something I do factor in rest days. Right now, I'm just trying to stay in shape and lose some weight for the 5% challenge. It hel... Read more

Yes. The last time I was able to walk for exercise was sometime in early September. Today I decided to try a short walk just in my neighborhood. First, had to find a pair of my shoes that would fit. My feet are already wide and I have buni... Read more

Monday is weigh in day for me. I've been able to lose some weight since I am completely off one of my anti-depressants. Although the doc told me up one side and down the other that "weight gain levels off" that wasn't true for me. I wouldn't cha... Read more
