  • More laughs.

    5/22/2015 3:17:32 AM, by GOANNA2

    I needed a good laugh after my fall on Wednesday. Just like that, while walking along the footpath I use every day for over three years to get to the Broadwater, I fell and found myself on all fours with skinned hands and knees and could not move. I was like a stunned mullet. Luckily a youn... Read more

  • DH is in rehab...

    5/21/2015 8:46:52 PM, by CTUPTON

    I chatted with the person who coordinates his stay with Medicare. She was more encouraging today. The first phone call I got from someone there sounded like he would stay only one week. That really does nothing to get him stronger. And he is now on insulin shots! I am so unprepared for this responsi... Read more

    5/21/2015 6:35:55 PM, by KGWINDER

    You know this gratitude stuff is a pretty heady drug for the soul. At first behind the scene there are a few grumbles and not going so well moments. As you get into the rhythm of gratitude pretty soon you are seeing things all over the place and it is limiting yourself to which ONE thing will be t... Read more

    I went to the orthopedist this morning to have him check the progress of my healing. He was a little disappointed in my rate of healing but stressed that it is indeed healing. Yeah!

    I moiderized 'em, ya see? Smoked 'em right out! I added 10 sets of reps onto sit-ups on the BOSU ball (query: why is BOSU ball not listed as a trackable thing?) and so increased my set to 50. I did 50 sit-ups! Two days later, I can finally uncurl from pill bug mode. So, tod... Read more

  • Distractions

    5/21/2015 7:07:48 AM, by KBL-123

    Distractions have typically been a bad thing but when it comes to eating bad food, it becomes a good thing. When I want to eat a cookie this week, I will distract myself by drinking water instead. When I want chips, I will distract myself by eating rice pops instead. These are small changes but I th...

    5/20/2015 10:55:05 PM, by KGWINDER

    So let me tell you a really really neat thing about vitamins and minerals when restricting calories - they don't have any!! The negative part of eating a low calorie ceiling each day, is it is super hard to get all your needs from food. For nearly four months now I have eaten under 1,000 calor... Read more
