Sunday, May 03, 2015      1 comments

My son-in-law brought a maple pecan cheesecake for dessert for our family dinner today. I have eaten 3 pieces and there is more in the refrigerator. This has been my habit for the past year or so, mindless eating and little activity. I'm disgus... Read more

Teeny Tiny Goals - Day 4

Friday, October 24, 2014      2 comments

My goal was no second helpings and I just about, almost, but not quite, made it. I was cleaning out the refrigerator and I found a container with 2 pumpkin tarts that my daughter had baked for dessert last Sunday. Sunday was our 41st wedding a... Read more

Okay, I did well all day until my husband asked me to make popcorn tonight. I did eat popcorn with him, but I'm okay with that. My ultimate goal is to develop healthy habits that I can live with in real life. Real life means popcorn with my h... Read more

Teeny Tiny Goals-Day 2

Wednesday, October 22, 2014      4 comments

Today was a success - just coffee and water to drink. No cheating at all with this goal. I'm a little bit proud of myself. Tomorrow's goal isn't so teeny tiny for me. One of my downfalls is mindless snacking, just eating whatever lies in... Read more

Today my teen tiny goal was to avoid going through McDonald's drive-through for a $1 sweet tea. I did succeed in that goal, but my husband brought one home from work and I did take just one sip. I'm still counting that as a success, though. ... Read more

new beginning

Saturday, August 30, 2014      1 comments

Last year at this time I was doing so well. I was losing weight, exercising, and feeling healthy. This year I've gained all the weight back and some extra, regular exercise is a memory, and I feel blah. But I'm not parking in this spot. I wo... Read more

The Ups and the Downs

Tuesday, February 05, 2013      3 comments

I stayed right on track all weekend. Yesterday I did well, too. Today, not so great. I am w-a-y over on my calories, thanks to lunch at Mcdonald's. One of my goals was no fast food this week so that's shot, but I'll start again. My new goal... Read more

On Wednesday and Thursday, my grandson spent the day with me. He's almost 2 and quite a boy. He kept me moving and busy. It made me miss the days when my children were small. It also made me realize that it's harder to get up off the floor t... Read more

Thanks for the Encouragement

Tuesday, January 29, 2013      3 comments

The encouraging messages really helped my attitude to improve. Thank you all so much. Today I decided to wear my pedometer and see how many steps I'm getting in, but I couldn't find it. Oh well, I got in some extra steps looking for it.... Read more

Lack of Discipline

Monday, January 28, 2013      5 comments

Many years ago, I was working in a church preschool program. One morning, I went into the small kitchen area to get snack for the children. One of the other teachers was there eating cookies. She looked guilty that I'd caught her eating the c... Read more

Tuesday, September 25, 2012      4 comments

The leaves are beginning to show a hint of color and the weather is much cooler. Since it's officially fall, I guess that's to be expected. The seasons of my life are changing, too. This morning, I clicked "Submit" on the NC Department ... Read more

Okay Self, Last night you were miserable and you totally know why. You were miserable because you spent the day eating mindlessly, drinking no water at all, and getting no exercise. You don't have a clue how many cookies, chips, and other jun... Read more

Mowing for Fun and Fitness

Thursday, April 05, 2012      3 comments

I've been mowing grass all week. Today I finally finished everything inside the fence except for a small spot between two sheds. Then I ran out of gas both for the mower and for my old body. Outside the fence really needs to be bushhogged so I... Read more

Not Going to Happen

I noticed today that my original goal was to lose 28 pounds by April 12. Well, I've lost 6 pounds so far so that 22 pounds isn't going to disappear in 9 days. But, you know, I'm not that discouraged. When I originally set that goal, I set it ... Read more

Thursday's Exercise

Today's exercise was mowing the yard. It's a big yard with hills. It took me about an hour and a half. I'm not finished but the mower ran out of gas and so did I. Mowing is something I enjoy, actually, so it makes for a good workout for me.... Read more
