The pressure is on

Tuesday, September 30, 2014      5 comments

Oops. I normally throw my jeans into the drier for about 5 minutes to get some of the wrinkles out and then hang them up to dry. Today I went outdoors to do a chore and ended up staying out longer than planned. So the only 2 pairs of size 16 ... Read more

Productive day

Thursday, September 25, 2014      7 comments

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I was able to get vehicle titles transferred from hubby's name to mine without tears. It took an hour and a half at the DMV but the ladies were wonderful - even phoning my insurance company because I had forgot... Read more

Making Progress

Wednesday, September 24, 2014      6 comments

Just two days after my last blog Ms. Gene passed away during the night. I was with her, along with her daughter-in-law, and count that as a blessing although it was tough coming so soon after my hubby's death. Watching two loved ones die from ... Read more

New day

Friday, September 12, 2014      4 comments

The last week has been a struggle. My dear friend Gene, who is 87 years old and the most amazing woman I have ever met, has been fighting cancer for about 4 years. She has been in the hospital for the last couple of weeks and has steadily gott... Read more

Difficult times

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      6 comments

It's been over two months since I was active on Sparkpeople, and so much has happened in that time. On August 19 my husband lost his 18 month battle with cancer. He had gotten a clean bill of health at his checkup in May so we were surpris... Read more

Plan B

Tuesday, June 24, 2014      8 comments

Plan A was a failure. I tried to provide high calorie foods for hubby and ended up eating them myself. He has continued to lose and I've gained 10 lbs in 6 months. Had my checkup today and the doctor was appalled. So am I. So, Plan B is... Read more

The challenge

Monday, January 06, 2014      5 comments

Here is what I have to do: I have to prepare meals and entice hubby to eat in order to gain weight. At the same time I have to discourage myself from overeating so that I can lose weight. And I just can't make two separate meals three times a... Read more

50th High School Reunion?

Friday, January 03, 2014      5 comments

Never attended a reunion. Never planned to. But by June I might have changed my mind. At any rate, I plan to look gooood by then. I haven't made an auspicious start to the New Year, but I'm gradually getting back on track. I think I hav... Read more

2014 already?

Wednesday, January 01, 2014      3 comments

Where did 2013 go? I made no progress. In fact, I lost ground. Well, that's over and done. I'm not even going to analyze what went wrong. Just taking steps today to get back on track. I actually started yesterday. When the kids le... Read more

Happy Dance

Tuesday, November 19, 2013      11 comments

Usually when I'm doing the happy dance it is because I have lost weight, and I haven't had much to celebrate along those lines lately. But, to put a perspective on things, hubby came home from the hospital yesterday following surgery for es... Read more

Baby Steps

Saturday, October 05, 2013      2 comments

Yesterday I partly tracked food - spent most of the day on the run and didn't follow through with what I started. But at least I tried. And I upped the water to 6 cups which definitely helped me feel better and sleep without cramps. Anoth... Read more

Update

Friday, October 04, 2013      2 comments

Not doing a lot better, but trying. We've been busy, busy, busy, and I comfort myself that some of the exercise I'm getting doing hard work (construction, etc.) helps compensate for my poor eating habits. Not really. Plan for the day:... Read more

Grumble, grumble

Tuesday, September 24, 2013      5 comments

Please, all my friends, line up and give me a series of swift kicks to the rear end (which is getting bigger by the day). I'm trying to get out of the doldrums and not having much success. I'm sick of this waiting game. Hubby did quite we... Read more

TGIF

Friday, August 23, 2013      5 comments

I'm getting my house in order! Because it has gotten to be a real mess! Hubby is 5 weeks past his last chemo and is doing quite well. He is eating most things now - hasn't tried a steak, but does fish, chicken, meatloaf, etc. with little ... Read more
