    I spent Saturday with our grand-daughter and yes, we been calling her monkey pretty much since she was born.

  • difficult

    9/20/2016 9:38:00 AM, by TXCURIOUS

    Wow last month was a challenge to stay on track. It was so much up and down and I ended being so much up that I almost lost track of what's really important. I wanted to give up and just let it all go. I also have a bad cough and am congested, maybe that all is connected; perhaps I am run down. But... Read more

    9/13/2016 9:18:20 AM, by JANNY316

    I am trying my best to come out of my mood since my father's passing, but not being very successful at it. It seems like I am ok, then out of the blue, something reminds me of him, or I think of him, and I am blue once again. Then since I am a stress eater, I hunt for something to put into my mout...

    Taking a new approach and a break. Changing things up and hopefully changing for the better! I have always liked the 'idea' of going on a '30 Day' retreat ... well, that's not in the cards for now but I have decided to take/make my own '30 Day Wellness Retreat' here at home. I actually like that ... Read more

  • Benefits of a Vivofit2 (or tracker of your choice)

    9/5/2016 3:38:15 PM, by CHEFTONITO

    I wear my fitness tracker (Vivofit 2 by Garmin, unpaid endorsement) all day every day except in the shower or in the pool. What I have learned: - I take a lot more steps the I thought (especially at work! My building almost a square city block so even shlepping to meetings involves some significant ... Read more

  • Pacific Northwest and the Overnight change of seasons

    9/5/2016 3:17:11 PM, by CHEFTONITO

    After 10 days of 95-100 degree days, the weather in Southwest Washington has turned to fall, literally overnight. Clouds, drizzle, and highs from 60-75. And the leaves are changing. (Note to self: plan a leaf spotting road trip.) I'm sitting looking out at a grey Labor Day, and thinking about all th... Read more

  • Restarting Again

    9/4/2016 9:38:44 AM, by MUSIKAT62

    Seems like I am good at starting but not completing the task of taking care of myself. I am very organized and hate to leave things undone in every other aspect of my life, work, home, church, and family. I need to learn to put myself first and not worry what other people think about me. They are... Read more

  • What steps are those?

    9/2/2016 8:02:38 PM, by CHEFTONITO

    I've got a new fitness monitor (Garmin), and I was shocked to look at it yesterday. I'm a computer worker and generally am at my desk far too much. So where did 6000 steps come from? Then I thought about it, and I guess those decisions to walk between our two buildings instead of driving were good o... Read more
