Well...I've been doing some serious biking, but have slacked off on walking. So "fate" took care of that today. DH & I are living temporarily in a 2nd floor condo located next to the outdoor stairs down to the ground. Today the constr... Read more

Rode bikes with DH & friends. A slight incline for 8 mi and boy, did I suffer. It wasn't that tough, but the last few rides have been hard for me. Then we came back down the beautiful bike path and it was SPLENDID. I would like to have ri... Read more

I feel grateful for so many things today. Here's just one: When I returned home from a windy, tough bike ride, there was a note on my rented condo door. It was a thank you note from a postal clerk (whom I barely know) who thanked me for cl... Read more

Well, I have't had a day like today since ....the beginning of January. January was crammed getting everything done before leaving home for a while. During the last 4 weeks, I've been working really hard to lose weight (11#). I'm eating as healt... Read more

Wow ... what a great day. And Wow...am I whipped! It's so much easier to limit what I eat when I'm busy, busy, busy. Boredom or spare time are my worst triggers. Grateful? Let's see. I rode further on my bike today. Not the longest distanc... Read more

I grateful for a book I'm re-reading: "The Beck Diet Solution: Train your brain to think Like a thin person". I think it's excellent, but I'd drifted away from ALL the techniques. And reinstating them into my life again. It's not a diet ... Read more

I didn't blog yesterday because it was a hard day to be grateful. We discovered that DH's bike had been stolen the night before. We're on a trip that is highly dedicated to biking. But today, I'm grateful that my bike wasn't stolen, too. Th... Read more

I'm gradually (and I DO mean gradually) realizing that even though I feel like I'm gonna croak during the first 10-15 min of a bike ride that IF I keep biking and don't give up, I will soon feel much better. And near the end, I'll start to pla... Read more

Laughter: belly laughs, tears-falling-down-your-cheeks laughs, almost-falling-off-your-chair laughs. That's my favorite "exercise". I was exhausted! We attended a play at the community college last night. It was a "farce" which always... Read more

I am grateful to be biking in high 70's instead of shoveling snow in 30's. People here call this "winter". How lucky am I?... Read more

A dream happened! While on a ferry going back to the CA coast from Anacapa Island in the Channel, I saw it! I ran from side to side of the ferry unbelieving what I saw with my own eyes. My jaw dropped, I jumped up and down. I'd seen this on TV,... Read more

I'm grateful that during this time when I'm trying to re-lose the extra pounds (for the zillionth time) that I have time and the weather to work out HARD. Biking and walking like crazy every day (except tomorrow when I'll be on a boat & a s... Read more
