Sun, 8 Apr 2018 13:09:09 EST Some Thoughts on Guns and School Shootings There is not one person who is FOR school shootings. <BR> <BR> Everybody is horrified by them and would like to see them end. <BR> <BR> The major difference between most folks is on HOW to prevent them. <BR> <BR> For those of us who live and work in safe environments, and who do not have an interest in hunting or shooting for a hobby, the answer seems simple: just get rid of the guns. Regulate the guns, limit those who can own guns. <BR> <BR> My primary residence is in Connecticut... Mon, 26 Mar 2018 16:57:01 EST Some New Breakfast Ideas I need breakfast to contain a protein or a fat, or both, to keep me feeling well throughout the morning. <BR> <BR> The egg dishes I prefer are scrambled or in a vegetable omelet or frittata. <BR> <BR> I like deviled eggs, substituting yogurt and/or cottage cheese for the mayonnaise to reduce the calories. <BR> <BR> Some of my non-egg breakfasts at home are: <BR> --Peanut butter on apple slices <BR> --Ricotta cheese (flavored with vanilla) on whole wheat toast <BR> --Avocado sliced on who... Tue, 13 Mar 2018 14:55:15 EST My Spark Friends My husband and I went out to breakfast this morning. It's my birthday. <BR> <BR> I was telling him about my Face Book friends - all of whom are people I know from real life, either as colleagues, neighbors, or just plain friends. Many of them sent me birthday wishes on my FB page. It was a real pleasure to read their greetings. <BR> <BR> (I don't allow anyone to write on my FB page, except for this one day of the year; I am the only one who can post messages there the rest of the time.) ... Thu, 1 Mar 2018 13:44:43 EST So where is this sweet tooth coming from? All my life I have preferred salty potato chips and french fries to sweets and chocolate. <BR> I am a salt-aholic, not a choc-aholic. I would much rather have a large order of french fries, served with vinegar and salt than a piece of cake or ice cream. <BR> In fact, if I am hungry and eat something sweet, it only makes me hungrier. <BR> <BR> But recently, I find that I am craving sweets more often. And I decided to find out if this was a common phenomenon as we age. (In the interest of fu... Mon, 22 Jan 2018 13:00:52 EST Delicious Madrid! Our trip to Madrid was fabulous. It is an historical, yet modern, city with world-class museums and architecture. The Christmas lights sparkled all over the city, the people were friendly and welcoming, and the food was excellent. <BR> <BR> Let me share with you some of those Spanish foods that we enjoyed (and that have made my clothing just a little tighter fitting than before). <BR> <BR> (All of the photos are taken from the internet. I was too busy enjoying the food to be photographing ... Tue, 2 Jan 2018 17:50:24 EST A Magical Anniversary Celebration This year of our 50th wedding anniversary, we are having an extra special family Christmas together. Both my sons and their families will be with us for the day. <BR> (This is a first, since they live on opposite coasts of this country.) <BR> <BR> Then, later in the evening, we will head off to the airport, and get on a plane to Madrid. <BR> <BR> This is the second half of our anniversary celebration, and I couldn't be more thrilled about it. <BR> <BR> We will get to see the sights of t... Sat, 23 Dec 2017 09:19:10 EST Holding Pattern for the Holidays I have been writing down everything that I put in my mouth these days. <BR> The notes are kept in a tiny notebook in my purse. <BR> (I felt it was less of a problem to record with paper and pencil -- especially when I was in company. Writing it on my phone could make me look very rude -- checking email or something else - while others are around.) <BR> <BR> So while I have been recording everything I eat, I have not tracked the calories. <BR> Several days - especially during these holiday... Fri, 15 Dec 2017 11:03:35 EST Just Write it Down The most effective strategy for me to be in control of my eating is: <BR> <BR> WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING THAT GOES INTO MY MOUTH. <BR> AND TRACK IT ON THE NUTRITION TRACKER. <BR> <BR> I don't have to decide to stay within the calorie range. I don't have to be feeling motivated. <BR> <BR> All I have to do is keep tracking- just record everything I eat, and add up the calories. <BR> <BR> (As my friend, Watermellen says: "Even if I'm not tracking, my body is tracking every day.") <BR> <BR> ... Wed, 29 Nov 2017 20:34:01 EST Aromas are important! I'm happy to not be cooking today, but I miss the delicious aromas in my house -- especially since we have guests arriving in a couple of hours. So I have put a hot apple cider beverage on my stove, containing cloves and cinnamon. I have also stuck some grocery store corn bread in the oven. Things are starting to smell much more like the holiday. <BR> <BR> Meanwhile, I'm sitting here in my kitchen watching the Macy's parade on the tv and sticking cloves into a tangerine. <BR> <BR> Happy ... Thu, 23 Nov 2017 09:55:15 EST Thanksgiving This Year This is the first Thanksgiving in a very long while, when my husband and I will not be sitting at a table loaded with delicious turkey and dressing and other goodies -- either at my house or at a family member's house. <BR> <BR> Our two sons and their families with be with the 'other grandparents' this year - so my husband and I are free to do what we please. <BR> <BR> We are going out - with my husband's sister and her husband - to a lovely French restaurant nearby. We may or may not orde... Tue, 21 Nov 2017 14:38:58 EST Yummy Butternut Squash <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <BR> The link below will give you the recipe for this dish - along with a video on how to prepare it. <BR> Surprisingly, it is quite easy. The hardest part of the process is cutting the raw butternut squash in half and peeling it. Then, it is just a matter of cutting it into thin slices, sticking some herbs between the slices, and covering it with a glaze made of maple syrup, apple cider ... Tue, 14 Nov 2017 14:35:34 EST NYTimes Recipe Pancakes are a food that I usually avoid - because of too many carbs. <BR> In fact, i never make them - and hardly ever order them when eating breakfast out. <BR> French toast is my preference. <BR> <BR> This morning, though, I tried a recipe from the New York Times for "Light, Fluffy and Rich Pancakes." <BR> <BR> 1 cup ricotta or cottage cheese (I used partially skim ricotta cheese) <BR> 1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt (I used low-fat plain yogurt) <BR> 3 eggs separated <BR> 1/2 teasp... Wed, 8 Nov 2017 09:25:28 EST Planning that allows for choices. My idea of planning food is to have options from which to choose. <BR> <BR> Here are the possible breakfasts you can have: e.g. apple slices with peanut butter, avocado toast, veggie omelet, etc. <BR> Here are some proteins for dinners or lunches: chicken, fish, and a variety of fresh vegetables, etc. <BR> Here are some snacks or lighter meals: hummus with fresh veggies, cheese slices, yogurt, etc. <BR> Here are some favorite foods: watermelon, bananas, ricotta cheese, etc. <BR> <BR> I b... Sat, 14 Oct 2017 10:40:06 EST Shadow Self Portraits Now that the sun is out, I have taken a couple of self portraits that are shadows of me photographing New England in the fall: rock walls, trees, and colorful leaves. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Of course,... Tue, 10 Oct 2017 12:34:04 EST Some Calorie Surprises Some foods can really surprise us with the number of calories they contain. <BR> <BR> Here are a couple that I found interesting: <BR> <BR> 1 tablespoon maple syrup = 53 calories <BR> 1 cup maple syrup - 819 calories <BR> <BR> 1 teaspoon sugar = 16 calories <BR> 1 cup sugar = 773 calories <BR> <BR> 1 tablespoon whipped cream = 8 calories <BR> 1 cup whipped cream - 154 calories <BR> <BR> I am just thinking of all those times I pour out the syrup onto French toast - maybe half a cup, mayb... Sun, 8 Oct 2017 18:31:18 EST Self Portrait I have an assignment for the photography course: create a photo that is a self portrait. <BR> <BR> I could just use the remote control on the camera and stand in front of a mirror - brought outside to the yard - with trees in the background, then take the photo. It would be straightforward, would let the viewer know that I like the out of doors, and would show everyone what I look like. <BR> <BR> For this course, however, I need to take it up to a higher level. <BR> <BR> First off, I do... Fri, 6 Oct 2017 09:44:37 EST Hunger or Flavor? Watermellen's blog this morning was about stopping eating when we are almost full - which is a very good idea. <BR> <BR> That got me thinking, though, about why I sometimes overeat. <BR> <BR> It is a rare occasion these days that I overeat to the point of feeling stuffed. If I do, though, it is not usually because I am so hungry. <BR> <BR> My problem is that I will eat beyond my need to satisfy hunger because I like how the food TASTES too much to stop. My overeating is rarely related... Wed, 27 Sep 2017 09:46:08 EST Cara Cara Orange This blog is going to sound like an advertisement, which, of course, it isn't. <BR> <BR> I just want to let the world know about a delicious orange that I discovered a couple of years ago when I was in Arizona. <BR> <BR> It is the Cara Cara orange. It is a navel orange that has a reddish fruit inside, and it is the sweetest and best tasting orange I have ever eaten. <BR> Just this week there were some in my local Connecticut supermarket, and I bought some. <BR> <BR> DELICIOUS!! <BR> <B... Sun, 24 Sep 2017 11:31:38 EST Structuring My Retirement Days I begin each day with a list. <BR> <BR> Lists have been a major part of my life for years now, because my memory is almost non-existent. <BR> <BR> The list is written in the morning on an index card - and placed somewhere easily reached - in my handbag or wallet. Index cards are excellent media for lists because they hold their shape and don't crumple up easily. I can work off of one index card for several days, crossing off and adding items as needed, depending on how much progress is... Wed, 20 Sep 2017 10:08:12 EST Photography My retired life is very full these days. Aside from the usual family activities, I am immersed in photography. <BR> <BR> I am busy coordinating a new photo club in our town that I was able to get started. We are having monthly meetings, with photo shoots in between. There is a professional photographer who acts as a teacher and leader for the group. We have set up a small private group on Face Book for communicating and sharing photos with each other. <BR> <BR> I also belong to another p... Fri, 15 Sep 2017 08:05:36 EST A message from a stranger This past Saturday, I was shopping for clothing at a local department store. <BR> After trying on a few items, I was experiencing the usual post-dressing-room gloom, and my mood was low. <BR> <BR> Most of my negative feelings were in reaction to what my 72-year-old skin looks like after some fat has been lost from beneath it. (I was again wondering if it's even a good idea to lose any more weight because of the unappealing changes in my skin -- but that's a different blog altogether.) <BR>... Tue, 22 Aug 2017 09:33:19 EST Anniversary Celebration In two weeks my husband and I will be celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. We got married on his first 3-day pass from basic training, because it was during the VietNamese war. Ours was a small wedding at the local church, with a reception at my mother's New York City home, followed by a two-day 'honeymoon' in Washington D.C. A few months later, my husband was assigned to a tech position at Fort Myer, Virginia, and we were fortunate to live in that area for the next two years until h... Thu, 17 Aug 2017 08:46:09 EST Mirror vs Photos Most days, I like the way I look in the mirror. <BR> <BR> But that is not true when it comes to photos. <BR> <BR> Either my mirror is too kind, or my own eyes and brain interpret the mirror image much too favorably. <BR> <BR> The photos tell an entirely different story. <BR> <BR> I just put together the annual book of photos of our family at the beach. <BR> And everyone looks good -- except for me, that is. <BR> <BR> These photos put me in a very negative place for a couple of days. <B... Sat, 12 Aug 2017 15:59:59 EST Random beach thoughts It was a good time with the three grandkids, and the two sons and their wives. It was a busy, exciting time filled with lots of fun activities. <BR> Now that it's over, my DH and I are taking it easy and feeling good about it all. <BR> <BR> We are both very proud of our sons - and the kind of fathers that they are. We told them that, too. <BR> <BR> <BR> I did hold my weight where I wanted it. It was not difficult. I did not deny myself much. I was satisfied with a taste of this, a m... Fri, 4 Aug 2017 10:32:22 EST Family Beachtime Okay, so I am now back down to that lower number with a .4 added onto it. <BR> <BR> My plan is to concentrate on staying within the calorie limits until I have reached the lower whole number with a .0 attached - and then to stay there. <BR> <BR> Hold that number on the scale! will be my mantra for the next two weeks as my three grandkids arrive here at the beach, soon followed by my two sons and their wives. <BR> <BR> That translates to: three meals a day, every day, with lots of snacks ... Sat, 15 Jul 2017 09:51:20 EST Blogging, Confessing, & Problem Solving This blog is a public confession. <BR> <BR> I am writing about some behavior that I really want to change. So I'm hoping that if I go public, maybe that will finally force me to do what I have to do. <BR> <BR> On the scale, I have been bouncing back and forth between three numbers for the past several weeks. Whenever I am near the top number of the three, I am very careful about watching what I eat. After a few days, when the number reaches the lower of the three, I go off my routine. I... Fri, 7 Jul 2017 10:30:34 EST July 4th My husband and I are at the beach - and we were by ourselves this July 4th for most of the day. <BR> <BR> When evening came, we joined some neighbors on our street to go to the beachfront house for a block party and a fireworks display. Lots of families were there - with kids and grandkids. <BR> Lots of food, drink, and making merry. <BR> <BR> I ate only a few items, drank only water, enjoyed the people and the fireworks. <BR> This morning, I was down half a pound. <BR> <BR> My energy ... Wed, 5 Jul 2017 09:18:00 EST Holding Pattern My weight is currently in a holding pattern. <BR> <BR> It is 10 lbs above my lowest weight achieved here on SP, and 20 lbs below the weight I originally started out at. <BR> <BR> I am happy to say that I feel comfortable maintaining this weight, and I've been doing that for several months now. <BR> <BR> These days I am focused on just holding this weight, and not gaining. <BR> It is almost as if my body is establishing a new normal. <BR> <BR> At some point, I will put in some more effor... Mon, 26 Jun 2017 08:40:23 EST Gardening I spent a large part of today and yesterday in gardens and in a farm field. <BR> <BR> There are huge bug bites on my neck (right where I put on perfume, I realized later). <BR> There's a small rash of poison ivy (or poison oak) on my arm. <BR> My shoes (inappropriate cloth ones) got so dirty they were beyond cleaning and had to be discarded. <BR> <BR> And right now - in the late afternoon - I am headed into the shower to wash the dirt and perspiration off most of me. <BR> <BR> Ahh.... but ... Thu, 22 Jun 2017 17:14:34 EST WHEN you eat matters Some research has shown that dieters who eat most of their calories earlier in the day lose more weight than those who eat their big meal at the end of the day. <BR> <BR> Just one study is mentioned below. (There are others mentioned in the article.) <BR> <BR> The following is a direct quote of just one study cited in USNews & World Report by <BR> Tamara Duker Freuman, MS, RD, CDN, a registered dietitian whose NYC-based clinical practice specializes in digestive disorders, celiac Disease... Mon, 12 Jun 2017 23:15:28 EST Summer Salad Salad is a real summertime lunch favorite for me (just as soup is a favorite for fall and winter). <BR> <BR> I'm always looking for ways to pack in the flavor and the nutrients to those salads. <BR> Here are some foods I regularly have in my salad: <BR> ---romaine lettuce, kale, cabbage <BR> ---broccoli, carrots <BR> ---apple <BR> ---walnuts or almonds <BR> ---sunflower seeds <BR> ---kidney beans or chick peas <BR> ---feta cheese <BR> <BR> Sometimes I include some canned salmon or tuna. <B... Sun, 11 Jun 2017 14:44:48 EST Motivation & Self-fulfillment My motivation to eat within the calorie limits every day can sometimes fade after a while. <BR> Being fit and liking how I look is important to me - yes - but there are some days when that desire alone is not enough to prevent me from eating more than I should. <BR> <BR> So what am I doing about it? <BR> <BR> I just recently purchased a new cookbook by an author that my SP friend, Watermellen, recommended in her blog. The dishes are meatless, and many of them look yummy in the photos. I f... Fri, 9 Jun 2017 17:02:38 EST Face Book My friend's blogs, Watermellen, got me thinking about Face Book. <BR> <BR> I am 72 years old, and I am on Face Book. <BR> Mostly I post photos - of wildlife that I come across, or of my grandkids. <BR> I don't put my own photo up there. And I would not put anybody else's photo up there either. <BR> <BR> Only those who are my friends can see what I post. My Face Book page is not open to the general public. <BR> <BR> I don't make political statements - no matter how strongly I feel. <BR> ... Wed, 7 Jun 2017 13:00:22 EST Wanna Wrestle, Grandma? My 5-year-old grandson will ask me every now and then, "Wanna wrestle, Grandma?" <BR> <BR> I never turn him down. <BR> <BR> I consider that to be one of the best invitations I can get. He then proceeds to jump on me, while I try to hold him off, and work at neither one of us getting hurt in the process. <BR> We generally roll around on the sofa, aiming small pillows at each other, and laughing a lot. <BR> <BR> It's fun. I like the tumbling around with him. <BR> <BR> It won't last mu... Mon, 5 Jun 2017 15:51:46 EST Home again We arrived home early yesterday morning on a sleepless redeye flight, and spent the day resting and napping. <BR> <BR> It was a demanding ten days babysitting our two grandkids. <BR> We were tired by the end, but glad to have done it. <BR> Our son and his wife had a great anniversary trip together. <BR> <BR> This morning the scale registers just where it was when I left. <BR> <BR> I couldn't be happier. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Tue, 23 May 2017 09:09:18 EST Prioritizing My husband and I are in California babysitting our two grandkids, age 8 and 5, while their parents are taking a 10-day trip to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary. <BR> <BR> It's always a struggle for me to eat less when I am here. <BR> <BR> First of all, it takes me days to get used to the 3-hour time difference. Mealtimes and bedtimes are always way too late for me. <BR> I am ready for dinner at 3pm, not at 6pm local time (which is really 9pm for me). <BR> So I am usually tired an... Mon, 15 May 2017 19:29:02 EST Some chuckles about stress eating Stress eating: we have all been guilty of it some time. <BR> I certainly have. <BR> Here are some cartoons about stress eating that can help us laugh at ourselves. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <img sr... Wed, 10 May 2017 15:10:03 EST Walking benefits the brain I am happy to see that science finds even more benefits from walking: <BR> <BR> April 24, 2017 <BR> <BR> "You probably know that walking does your body good, but it's not just your heart and muscles that benefit. Researchers at New Mexico Highlands University (NMHU) found that the foot's impact during walking sends pressure waves through the arteries that significantly modify and can increase the supply of blood to the brain. The research will be presented today at the APS annual meeting a... Mon, 8 May 2017 09:46:22 EST Behaviors determine success It feels really good at the end of the day when I can say to myself: "I did everything I needed to do today to meet my goal. I walked for an hour and I stayed within my calorie limits." And it feels extra good the next morning because I know that I am making progress--no matter what the scale says. My behaviors are what determine my success. Tue, 2 May 2017 08:27:28 EST Taking charge of more areas of my life These days I have taken charge of my eating and exercising behaviors, and the results are rewarding: my energy level is up and the scale is moving down. <BR> <BR> There are some other areas in my life that have called to me, and I find myself taking charge of them as well. <BR> <BR> 1. Winter dry skin. Yuk! Every winter my skin dries out, flakes, and is very itchy. Winter skin dryness has always occurred - even before we started spending the winter months in the desert southwest. Now ... Fri, 28 Apr 2017 11:16:32 EST Avocado Toast - A favorite breakfast Just about a year ago, while visiting my son's family in California, I saw my daughter-in-law eat an interesting breakfast. <BR> <BR> She sliced up an avocado and put it on whole wheat toast. Then she squeezed the juice from a half of a lemon onto the avocado, and salted and peppered it. <BR> <BR> She offered me some, and I LOVED it. <BR> <BR> This is a particularly filling breakfast - and it keeps me feeling satisfied long into the day. The (good) fat in the avocado also stabilizes my b... Wed, 26 Apr 2017 11:14:48 EST A Maintenance Frame of Mind Something has changed -- for the better. <BR> <BR> I am no longer in a fight between would I WANT to do and what I SHOULD do. <BR> <BR> It is no longer the scale against me, or the tempting food against me. <BR> <BR> In times past, when I would have indulged in some forbidden dessert or treat, I would often think, "Oh well, I've blown it now, so let me just go ahead and enjoy some other prohibited food while I'm at it." <BR> It was THE RULES against me. <BR> <BR> Today I am not fight... Tue, 18 Apr 2017 14:29:53 EST Greek Cucumber Salad I love Greek tzitziki sauce, so when I saw this recipe online for a Greek cucumber salad, I knew I would love it too. <BR> <BR> GREEK CUCUMBER SALAD <BR> <BR> 1 cup Greek nonfat plain yogurt - place in a mixing bowl <BR> <BR> ADD the following to the yogurt and mix well: <BR> juice from 1/2 lemon <BR> 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped <BR> 1 clove garlic, minced <BR> 1 tsp kosher salt <BR> <BR> Then ADD the following to the yogurt mixture: <BR> 1 cucumber, thinly sliced <BR> 1/4 red onion, chop... Mon, 10 Apr 2017 13:42:30 EST Delicious Turmeric Lemonade This morning my DH and I had breakfast at a new place that offers lots of interesting and healthful choices for breakfast and lunch. <BR> I saw turmeric lemonade on the menu and ordered it - having just recently heard about the health benefits of turmeric. <BR> <BR> And the lemonade was DELICIOUS! <BR> <BR> Ordinarily I don't drink a lot of lemonade because it is way too sweet for me. <BR> This one was not. <BR> <BR> I will definitely make it for myself at home. I looked online for a rec... Thu, 6 Apr 2017 19:39:55 EST When can I stop tracking my food? I always knew the tracker was a great tool. And I used it for the entire time I was losing weight. <BR> <BR> It was only afterward that I stopped tracking. <BR> <BR> This is what I told myself: <BR> I have been tracking so regularly that I now know the calorie content of my favorite foods without tracking. <BR> I have already lost the weight, and I am no longer 'dieting' so I don't need to continue tracking. <BR> I am finished with tracking; I do not want to be tied to this constant recor... Sun, 2 Apr 2017 17:34:32 EST Tracking: the best tool Tracking is the best tool there is for getting back to where I should be. <BR> <BR> Recording every bite that goes into my mouth eliminates all possible forms of self-deception. <BR> I can't forget what I ate earlier. <BR> I can't underestimate the number of calories I am taking in. <BR> I can't kid myself about how much I am eating. <BR> <BR> Tracking keeps the reality of my eating right in front of me every day. <BR> I am forced to look carefully at the portion size. <BR> I am forced to s... Thu, 30 Mar 2017 12:01:51 EST Here is my truth Here is my truth: <BR> <BR> I need to make a conscious effort to keep up my new eating habits, otherwise the old habits come back, and the old habits lead to weight gain. <BR> <BR> So it is up to me as to WHEN I make that effort. <BR> Will it be AFTER I have gained the weight back, and I am playing catch-up, trying to get it off again? <BR> Or will it be BEFORE I have gained the weight, and I am keeping it off? <BR> <BR> The timing makes a huge difference in how I feel about myself - an... Mon, 20 Mar 2017 19:44:09 EST Busy, Full Days Life has been full and busy these days, and I love it. <BR> <BR> I signed up for a memoir-writing seminar, and have spent a considerable amount of time writing down events from my childhood. It was an excellent exercise, and it cleared away some unwanted old emotions that were hanging around from decades ago. <BR> <BR> I am also busy with a new photography seminar and joining a new camera club. So I'm meeting new people and getting better at my photography skills. <BR> <BR> My DH and I ... Tue, 11 Oct 2016 09:23:33 EST Out of Irons I have wind in my sails again. Thank goodness. This was a summer that I mostly spent 'in irons' as they say. I made no progress with my weight loss - and just hung around the same high number on the scale --stalled. <BR> <BR> Now, though, the wind has picked up, and I have been heading again in the right direction. And there is nothing like a little momentum to motivate me. <BR> <BR> As I begin sailing along again, I am eating less again. I have started walking again. <BR> <BR> And gu...
