Garden Fever
Thursday, May 05, 2016      4 comments

I headed out to the garden the first thing this morning and got the whole thing tilled twice. Then I planted my seed potatoes, 4 varieties not counting a few Russets I had under the sink that were starting to sprout. I planted Fingerling (a ye... Read more
Goodbye to an Old Friend
Wednesday, April 27, 2016      7 comments

Today was a sad one in our house. Our fifteen year old Shih Tzu has been having seizures and today was so lethargic we made the decision to have her put down. I suspect she was having little strokes. In addition, over the last year her eyesig... Read more
Am I The Only One?
Sunday, April 24, 2016      4 comments

Yesterday I went to a workshop on gardening. It was fun and informative which is not the point of this blog. The question I have is "Am I the only one who hates wraps?" I have been to several occasions where lunch was provided and it turned o... Read more
Spring Clean Up
Wednesday, April 20, 2016      1 comments

One of my most satisfying exercises is to clean up my local rural roadside. This morning I walked half a mile and picked up winter trash from along the road. It actually wasn't too bad this year since I only got two bags full. Half of it can ... Read more
And Ten to Go!

I officially have 10 more pounds to go to get to my Weight Watchers goal. It has taken me nearly a year to get this far with a 37 plus pound loss. My average weight loss has been only .7 pound per week but without WW I doubt I would have lost ... Read more

I love spring. I love gardening which is one reason and I enjoy walking along the road and through the woods to see what is happening. My day is now busy from morning to night with activities outside and the scale is reflecting that. My ... Read more
Slow but Progress Anyway

I weighed in at Weight Watchers today and got back to my lowest weight that I have reached there during this last 11 months with the program. The month of March was not a particularly good month for weight loss for me but I hope I learned somet... Read more
Determination
Monday, March 21, 2016      6 comments

After my disheartening weigh in last week when I had a 4 pound weight gain, today was really encouraging. I not only lost that 4 pounds but another 1.6 pound for a total of 5.6 pounds this week. I know it had a lot to do with sodium so I was c... Read more
Rocky Week
Saturday, March 19, 2016      4 comments

I have been fighting a binge mentality all week. Today and yesterday have been fine so I am hoping that I have worked past it. I try to find something to keep me occupied when I am tempted to raid the pantry and exercise and hobbies do help.... Read more
Getting Back On Track
Monday, March 14, 2016      5 comments

This last weekend was not a good one for my diet. I did track what I ate but had some lapses in good judgement and indulged a bit too much and with too much salt. Today I weighed in at Weight Watchers with a 4 pound gain. Logically, I know th... Read more
A Few Compliments!

Today at church two people commented on how much weight I have lost, particularly in my face (although that wasn't the area I was concerned about ... Read more
End of Winter Doldrums
Wednesday, March 02, 2016      2 comments

I am doing my best to keep busy indoors and spend less time on the computer and more moving around. Last year I sat far too much and along with gaining weight, managed to have a pulmonary embolism! I am lucky to have survived that and I am now... Read more
Another Good Week

I did a little cooking this week. I bought some Wonton skins and decided to experiment and see what i could do with them. I found one recipe for bacon and onion and egg substitute used as a filling in mini muffin cups. If I ever make it again... Read more
I Can't Remember How Long It Has Been
Thursday, February 25, 2016      6 comments

I quit tracking my food and exercise several years ago and of course the predictable outcome occurred. I gained all my weight back again. Forward to last May and I joined Weight Watchers and have slowly been losing weight again. I still have ... Read more
Got My Exercise!
Thursday, August 14, 2014      2 comments

It took about an hour for me to find my little dog who got off her leash this morning. I live in a rural neighborhood along a lake and she managed to get nearly a half mile away and got stuck in a swamp! A neighbor saw her and heard her barkin... Read more
