Pedometer Spurs Me on!

When I wear my pedometer, I check it now and then throughout the day to see how I'm doing. If it's low, it spurs me on to get going and try to reach my goal of 10,000 before the day is over! It doesn't get me SparkPoints, but it does give me motivation!

How NOT to lose earings!

In the past, I would wear some of my favorite earrings, only to discover that sometime during the day, one had fallen out, and was gone forever!

Greeting Cards Aren't That Necessary Sometimes...

However, when my dear husband writes me a short poem or note of love on even a piece of scrap paper, I treasure it like gold!

Sure enough, it was on sale 1/2 price and I got it for $9.99!!! It works GREAT! (I got it beside the blood pressure products by the pha...

Use Up Your Oven Space With Healthy Bread!

My bread machine went out last week, and I don't have the extra money to get another one just yet. I resorted to making the whole wheat bread recipe I used to make when my adult kids were little, and doubled it!

Keep Going FORWARD!

I had a cast on my foot for over a month, and now, a boot. I could have used any excuse I could think of to quit exercising, but I did NOT want to start over, so I kept doing what I COULD do, under Dr's care, and I still am! I have only gained THREE POUNDS since my surgery! It CAN be done!
