What's next'

Tuesday, May 13, 2014      0 comments

Just before we went on vacation, I lost about 10# and had some blood lab work done. Lots of great scores except for overactive thyroid. Doctor asked if I'd had any unusual weight loss. I didn't think so. Now I wonder. I'm going in for a scan to ... Read more

Just a little brag

Sunday, February 02, 2014      2 comments

When I read about age related problems, I feel a little smug. I should be thanking God that I don't have those issues. I am 69 and have been blessed with great genetics in some areas. *After my hysterectomy, I did not have hot flashes, my hus... Read more

Husband's retired

Friday, December 20, 2013      1 comments

and I'm retried. In the beginning we didn't see a lot of each other, now we are rarely apart. Would be great if he didn't make so many unsatisfactory decisions for me. Do I want to park far out? He parks as close as possible. What time are we le... Read more

Happy Holidays and Eating

Tuesday, December 17, 2013      1 comments

Christmas is more about being around lots of people, decorations and enjoying life. Holidays are about eating. I don't have a handheld device to track my eating so I don't post regularly. That makes it easier to skip a healthy choice here a... Read more

Tried 'Work Off Your Turkey Day Feast'

Saturday, November 30, 2013      1 comments

Looked like a good concept in print. However there were couple of issues. 1) I am 5'8" with an inseam of 32". 2) Most small hotel rooms/guest rooms lack either the floor space in a straight line or the ceiling height for me to do most of these ... Read more

Give me a break, please

Friday, October 18, 2013      3 comments

I had some jerky for emergencies but left it on the kitchen table. Three servings casually consumed by my husband as a snack. Now there is none for me. He went out for a burrito bowl and brought one back to me after he saw me eat fried rice and ... Read more

Where were you, where are you, where are you going?

Monday, September 09, 2013      1 comments

When did I start this journey? That is so hard to say because I was so young the first time I tried to lose weight. I wanted to be the same size as other girls. It didn't matter that I was 4" taller than average. I wanted to be 'thin' like them.... Read more

10 Signs You're Watching Too Much Television

Friday, June 14, 2013      1 comments

Finally got around to reading '10 Signs You're Watching Too Much Television'. In a way, it was funny. I know I've sat too long because my knees won't flex. For my husband's birthday party Saturday, I hid the TV & DVR remotes so nobody would watc... Read more

Stay at Home vacation

Thursday, June 13, 2013      1 comments

Just got back from a Stay at Home vacation. My sister-in-law and her husband came out for my husband's 70th birthday. If she or I said, 'Oh, let's walk' the men were forced to walk with us. We normally had breakfast at home. That was easy.... Read more

A Beautiful Day - ouch

Tuesday, May 28, 2013      5 comments

Yesterday the temperature was mild and the ground was wet. A perfect opportunity to do some yardwork instead of housework. I was pulling up small weeds, tree sprouts and some old roots. At times, I had to pull up a tarp screen. Can't believe how... Read more

Are you a distracted eater?

Thursday, April 25, 2013      1 comments

I took the quiz and came out neutral. I know that sometimes I am distracted and sometimes not. The biggest problem with the quiz is that several questions did not have answers that fit me. We eat out a lot so does that mean I eat at the dining ... Read more

My grandmother used to send us divinity, fudge, fruitcake and a few other foods for Christmas. My mother alwas rationed what she gave to us, saving most of it for herself. Fudge is so easy to make in the microwave or buy someplace, I say, '... Read more

went shopping with hubby yesterday. Progresso soups were on sale I picked up the beef barley and looked at picture. 'I can do better than that with the steak I have at home.' So I picked up a bag of mixed frozen vegetables instead. At home ... Read more

Getting better

Saturday, August 11, 2012      1 comments

The day at the Air Museum, improved my husband's mood and that makes my life better. Today we went to Bob Evans and I had the BE Fit Breakfast with real eggs. Really I only ate the eggs and pancakes. The fruit came home for later. Every tim... Read more

Just blowing off steam.

Tuesday, August 07, 2012      4 comments

Staying the same is not always bad. I've crept up in weight. Not much, but enough to say, 'Hey, you weren't going to be there again.' I haven't been on Sparkpeople regularly since the 6-week cruise at the end of that summer 2 years ago. It is so... Read more
