I know more about what to do. I have kept some good friends I know mainly online. Interestingly, while I have gained some weight back I am not that far from my original goal (and I am fairly far from where I started). So I took time and thought about what was healthy for me. What irritated me. What are my habits when I am a happy person I like and that people like to be around and to work with. <BR> <BR> I need some exercise. I need some silence. I need alone time. I n... Tue, 10 Jan 2012 21:33:37 EST Been too long, but today I am outraged: growing vegetables http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4350863 Oak Park, MI has threatened lady with jail for growing veggies in her front yard. <link>t.co/X6q3zIg </link> <link>tinyurl.com/3ef8yzm </link> <BR> <BR> Yes, seriously. After the city dug up her yard instead of replanting grass (which perhaps the city should have done?) she put in raised beds and put in a garden. Vegetables are not inexpensive. By gardening in the front yard one can be social. This lady and her family are showing how to tend to something so it will grow and prod... Sat, 9 Jul 2011 08:28:58 EST Week 7.5? 1? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3778381 So what happened in a month? Two people in my life died and work is hyper. Plus many people came for the funerals and one last visit. Only one person is still here who does not normally live here. Soon a new normal will be arriving although so are the holidays and they are never 'normal'. plus other potential time demanding situations are lurking. But this week we kind of woke up around here. Suddenly it is chilly, and food has rotted. Today I started to smell again. Literally. <BR> <B... Thu, 11 Nov 2010 22:20:19 EST Week 3: new realities http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3706427 What did and did not work in weeks 1 and 2? I made my plans right before a cross roads for several family members. Now reality has shifted a bit. What I realize looking back at two weeks is I still need a new HRM and new socks and running shoes. I do not have bands and likely will not get them for a while to come. I dislike the stair thing even for a minute. I need to have a plan that can be done basically anywhere and without a mat or equipment and perhaps with 20 people milling around,... Sun, 10 Oct 2010 22:15:16 EST UPDATE: Week 1 and 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3688978 WEll, I wrote this, and started up, and the next day a family emergency arose again. They tend to do that these days. So there will be a lot of "not done" below. But there is also quite a bit of "done" and I am reworking week 2 to make it more realistic for current reality, although that may too change by the end of the week. <BR> <BR> ORIGINAL GOAL: 14 pounds down by the end of the year is the rough plan, but the over all plan is happier and healthier.

So many around me are ill, work is full, and other things are too, so what can I control the best? Myself, and doing that will help me do everything else, clear my head to be smarter, etc. <BR> <BR> Week plan: <BR> 1 day: consume under 1700 cals <BR> 5 days: consume under 2000 cals <BR> 1 day: consume under 2500 cals <BR> <BR> Plan: <BR> Sat 9/25: <BR> Consume under 2000 cals [DONE: ac...

Sat, 3 Jul 2010 10:51:01 EST RE-dedication http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3303234 Last time I wrote a blog was about a year ago. Since then I have paid attention to nutrition, exercise, etc, and posted on private boards but not in many other places. Still, it is time for re-dedication to myself and good things I do not like so much (e.g. cleaning the house) but are good in general. So this weekend I am cleaning up a variety of things including my SP. <BR> <BR> It has been almost a year since my grandma died. I last saw her a year ago this weekend. It has been almost ... Sat, 5 Jun 2010 12:25:11 EST Section 60 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2090990 Today is Memorial Day in the US. Every once in a while people will talk about their beach plans and another will mention their fallen family member. Then the beach planner will sound sad. The military family will remind them it is ok to be happy and to enjoy. This is the dichotomy of the day to me. <BR> <BR> This year I have noticed a change around Washington; people are willing to volunteer to serve their country not only in the military but also as public servants. They do so with hi...

After months of fighting with the insurance over PT, lots of trips, illness, and cold weather when I am not supposed to use the treadmill, Jan 20th I walked in the cold. Worth it. Last weekend I walked. People thought I was nuts so I only got in a mile before people insisted they drive me. But it felt good. DH got a comfy chair for me to sit in afterwards so the hips did ok. <BR> <BR> Last night I got in 1.5 out, an...
