Gone to India with said face-planted face, and had a great time1

Making little goals
I've never been one to make little goals. For example, I am treasurer of my church and we have had the opportunity to purchase two different properties adjacent to the church. When we met to talk about it, I said we should buy them both, because... Read more

Regarding blogs I read today.
Today I read Sparkguy's blog where he talks about his new 10 minutes a day streak. It's the consistency that is important. Doing 10 minutes a day isn't impossible for anyone, and it doesn't mean you can't do more, it just means you need to do SO... Read more
I was reading some of my old blogs andrealize that I haven't been very good about consistently writing about what's happening or not happening in my life.

For anyone who doesn't know me, I lost over 100 pounds between August 2009 and June 2011. And then I gradually put half of it back on, reaching 205 lbs. last month. Finally, the wake up call I needed! That, combined with terrible arthritis in my... Read more
Elimination diet--hope it solves the arthritis problem.
After talking to my doctor, we decided to try an elimination diet to see if there is something that I'm eating that is making my arthritis worse. So, for the last 4 days, I have been eating, fruit, veggies, nuts, whole grain (but not wheat), and... Read more
Big Snow, death of a faithful friend.
It's been quite a couple of weeks. We had ice on New Years Day, then THE BIG SNOW in the midwest on January 5-6. Just laid around the house. Actually, that's not quite true...I shoveled a 150 ft driveway three times on Sunday and once on Monday ... Read more
Random thoughts and a couple of goals.
Today is my last day of work (except for a half day on December 26th) until January 6! It's time to do some serious reflection on my health and happiness. I will be here at home, mostly by myself (with dogs and cat) so I have almost three weeks ... Read more
One of the things I often crave is chocolate (and peanut butter, too, but that's a different story...) and a couple of weeks ago I was surfing the web and up popped an ad for "Choffy" Like ground coffee you put in a French Press, but made out of... Read more
Yesterday I went to the doctor, not because I was sick, but because it had been a year since I'd had bloodwork done and figured I'd better face the music about my blood sugar and my cholesterol. Not that my diet has been horrible ... Read more
