Sudoku and cajun food
Early church and then out to a fairly new cajun restaurant. I had crawfish remoulade on fried green tomatoes, and then split an eggs benedict on crab cakes with dh. Plus drank cup after cup of coffee with chickory. You know what? Not one ounce o... Read more
"Scary" doctor visit and test results
Went in for my recheck and took MY blood pressure cuff with me, along with all the recorded BPs from the past month as she had asked me to do. Here I'd been running along at around 123/78 or there abouts. First the nurse took it-144/92! YIKES! a... Read more
Early exercising AND zero guilt!
Let's hear it for time change................booooooo
Got out on the path at 6:35 this morning and enjoyed the stars. Soon after a neighbor jogged by wearing head gear that had a lamp on it. Good grief! Did get a nice long jog in... Read more
I need to slow down. I'm enjoying these changes so much and want the days and weeks to fly by so I can get to my goals. Whoa, nelly.
Days are to be savored and used up, one at a time. I have to metaphorically slap myself awake, as in back to ... Read more
I can do squats
Did I tell you I can do squats??? Well, by golly, I can. I'm truly amazed. I'm so amazed that when I realized this on last Friday-doing them during the weight training with 2-8# weights, I did one after another. Needless to say I could hardly si... Read more
I'm crossing my legs!
As I sit here, blogging at the end of another busy day, crossing my legs, I know something is different. My top foot doesn't stick out as far. That means my legs are smaller. I notice it when I walk as well. How lovely! My hope is that this shri... Read more

Obese Moniker 3/12/10
Been thinking quite a bit about goal setting. Last night did the online search to determine BMI and found that I am tottering on the line between obese and over weight.
Goal.........to be over weight! Sounds like a funny goal but when the ... Read more

Wednesday woes and victories
Up early to get squashed and scanned-as in the yearly mamogram and bone density (should call it bone destiny since bone strength matters so much) I asked the nurse how long this coughing crud was lasted and she said about a month. Great. Swung b... Read more

Monday the 9th
Slept late, as in until after 7, since I ended up taking some nyquil-wanna-be medicine at 2. Just couldn't stop coughing and needed to sleep. I am so much better. Really turned the corner last evening and knew I was on the mend. Pulled out some ... Read more
Lord's Day 3/8/10
Yesterday consisted mostly of crocheting and watching old Jeeves and Wooster videos (starring a very young Hugh Laurie-aka House), soaking in a very hot tub trying to steam open these lungs, reading Pride and Prejudice, and listening to streamin... Read more

Counting down to one month in Spark land. I like being in Spark land!. I have new focus, determination, wisdom, encouragement to reach my goals. Again, my goals have changed and what a difference that has made. As I sit here, still in my "sick" ... Read more

So today I don't think I'll be able to walk. Rats. May try the strength training but I'm aching all over. Will see.
I love my poem. Jogging along t... Read more
