Oh my knee my knee
Monday, January 11, 2016      8 comments

I haven't a clue what I did. I can't remember being on my knees, I only have three stairs on the outside of my cabin. But I woke up Saturday morning and my knee was hurting. By yesterday morning (Sunday), I couldn't walk at all. I couldn't e... Read more

Another Saturday
Saturday, January 09, 2016      4 comments

Every Saturday lately I have been waking up with the song in my head: "Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody..." lol. There are lots of single women that have retired and moved up here, but there are hardly any single men. Sure would... Read more
The rest of my life
Friday, January 08, 2016      5 comments

I really do need to commit to a change for the rest of my life. I used having my grandsons with me for 17 months as an excuse to eat poorly. Truth is, I was stressed and that is a trigger for me to overeat. Now I have to readjust my mindset a... Read more
Third day back is a charm!

Praising God that He helped me overcome temptation to eat bad today!!! I returned to starting my day with a devotional, and that seems to really be helping. My weekly "Lifegroup" meeting with a few ladies from my church was today. We always e... Read more

Jan 6th and haven't even tried since August. At all. Very ashamed of myself, but I did manage to log all of my food today even if I didn't get out to walk, which is monumental for me. I thankfully still have not gained more than 20 of the 40 ... Read more
Trying again...
Wednesday, August 05, 2015      7 comments

August 5th and I haven't done anything since February to try and get on track. I have been extremely stressed and extremely depressed and extremely off-track. I have gained a total of 20 pounds back to what I lost, which, in itself, is very de... Read more
WooHoo! Back for a second day!
Tuesday, February 24, 2015      8 comments

YAY! I am back today! My second day back. I was able to stay mostly on track yesterday. I gave in about 8:00 last night and ate one cup of cereal (without milk) for an additional 130 calories, so that isn't too bad. Especially considering my... Read more
Sigh...trying again to restart!!!
Monday, February 23, 2015      8 comments

I am a stress eater. The more stress I have, the more I eat, and the less I want to do. Long story short, my 6 and 7 (now 7 and 8) year old grandsons came to live with me the beginning of June. It has been a tremendous financial strain on me... Read more
Only Positive Thoughts!
Tuesday, January 06, 2015      2 comments

And so I have slid back, but not too much and still have managed over the last 6 months to not gain any more than 10 lbs since my grandsons came to live with me. I have developed an allergy to peanut butter. I laugh at that now, because I have... Read more

Darn wasps!
Friday, August 22, 2014      4 comments

Living in a log cabin in a national forest, I have had a plethora of assorted insects to pester me. Lately, it has been wasps. I had them last year, but this year it is even worse. Every time we open and close the gate, it disturbs wasps tha... Read more
