Not Looking at Calories Today
I am weary to my bones today. I don't know why. I had a good workout today - my favorite video, which is JM's No More Trouble Zones. It was a little more challenging than usual, but I fully completed more of the exercises, so that was AWESOME.

New Food Combo - It's Good!
I am always trying to find higher protein lunches, and today I accidentally hit upon a very tasty combination. It is black beans, cottage cheese, cilantro and a sprinkle of black pepper. All just what I had in the fridge. Cilantro is so good, I ... Read more
We had a bit of rain and lower temps yesterday which helped with the fires. A lot of people were let back into their homes, and they are now saying 30% containment. I had never heard the term containment until the fire last year. It's a beautifu... Read more
The fires are burning homes at an amazingly fast rate. Over 3500 people evacuated in Black Forest, hundreds more around the Royal Gorge. Pueblo fire is almost out, thank GOD. We can smell the smoke from here. It's like a repeat of last year, bri... Read more
Summer, oh Summer
Summer is not my favorite. I don't like being hot. I grew up in Arizona and I left as soon as I could. Last year we had the big fires here in Colorado. They were within a few miles of my house. I had to evacuate one night. The sky was orange at ... Read more

Here is my issue-my fam... Read more

Day Off from Working Out
So yesterday was a bad morning. I decided to not work out and just get my exercise from activity. I cleaned up my backyard. It was good heavy work, so I felt it in my muscles, and also sweeping was a good aerobic activity. At the end, I had move... Read more

Getting Back from the Cold
I have had a bad cold for about two weeks. In that time, I went over on calories almost every day and hardly exercised. I've always wished I was one of those people who can't eat when they're sick, but that's not me!
So, this week, I've st... Read more

Walking with a Geriatric Dog
Just took my old Aiko out for a walk. Less than a mile. Took 30 minutes. It's ok though, I have some nasty sore throat and not feeling so good anyway.
