    Wow, I was hoping the new year would be a slower pace. But, so far, not the case. We have been busy with Dr and specialists. It's hard to keep up. The last couple of days I have been on down -time as much as possible. It seems I get to a certain place and I just collapse. It's like... Read more

    I lost 1.3 pounds since the first of January. Small victory. I have also started cutting out soda from my diet. I know that it is extremely bad for me but it tastes so good.

    Last year, I had a lot of success at the beginning of the year with tracking my food. About half way through the year, though, I started getting lazy. I would often track breakfast and lunch and then leave off dinner, skip weekend days, etc. During the summer when my activity level was really high, ... Read more

    1/9/2018 11:09:32 AM, by GIAARNOLD

    Reading my devotional this morning, this phrase caught my attention, "God works best in and through me when I’ve rested from my work and ceased striving to do things my way." In changing any habit or way of living, I need God's presence working with me. When I ask for devine support in my routine... Read more

    Yesterday was interesting.

That was comfortable and fun to see my... Read more

    Today is a good day because I am alive. I need to get back into my old habits. Not just in the way I eat but in the way I think as well. Some of you know I was diagnosed with cancer. Let me just say that it is not an easy road to have to travel but I know I can do this too. The hardest part was eve... Read more

I had baking stones back in the day and I stopped using them because I needed to baby them too much. Not so wi... Read more
