Reevaluating again
Tuesday, May 09, 2017      10 comments

I've been stuck for so long, losing a pound or two and gaining it back after a week or two. The doctor's recommendation of giving me the permission to cheat twice a week is not helping at all. I now cheat more than I ever did before. Three to fo... Read more

The store closed for good Saturday. I am taking a couple of days to get caught up a bit with housework and then it's job hunting seriously. If all else fails Wendy's is always looking for people and it's only 7 miles from home. And they have he... Read more

I've been stuck in a rut for 2+ years now. I initially lost 30# in about 7 months and have taken 2 years to lose another 5#. Way too slow and I'm coming up on a deadline set by my GYN to lose about 10# more. I went to the doctor's Thursday and f... Read more
Sundays reviewed
Sunday, January 29, 2017      5 comments

I usually dread Sunday. Not because of how busy it is, or that I usually sit through the same sermon 3 times. I dread Sunday because I can never seem to keep even close to my goal. Fifth Sundays are even worse because we have a fellowship after ... Read more

This weekend was a lot harder on my body than I expected. I am sore and stiff from all the standing, cooking, packing, unpacking, setting up, serving, and cleaning up associated with our Christmas dinner. We have done this for the last 8-9 years... Read more

My new goal
Monday, December 12, 2016      5 comments

I've been a bit lax with my walking lately. Even when I'm less than 1000 steps from my daily goal, I just crawl in bed saying I'm too tired. 1000 steps. That's just 5 to 10 minutes more walking / marching around the house. Surely I can walk for ... Read more
