Zero added sugar?
Saturday, April 22, 2017      4 comments

Today, in the 21-Day No-Sugar Challenge, I am supposed to aim for zero servings of added sugar. Zero? Why zero? I know that too much sugar is bad. But zero? Where's the fun in that? I'm definitely working on less sugar. I'm trading ... Read more

When I got home from grocery shopping and DS helped carry, we started talking again. BTW, thank you for all of the support on my "Florida is humid" post. I really hope he listens, but if not, it feels good to know you all listen to me!! ... Read more
I'm not a world traveler
Thursday, April 20, 2017      6 comments

When I went to college, I flew from Idaho to Missouri without my parents. And things were a lot different back then (rules, luggage, etc.). Since then, I have flown to Taiwan twice (on the company's dollar) so I have had to learn how to pack f... Read more

There was a bus crash not far from where we live. The bus swerved off of the road and rolled an unknown number of times. The great news is that there are no life-threatening injuries. There are some bumps and bruises, but nothing serious. Th... Read more
A work out partner is essential for me
Monday, April 17, 2017      7 comments

I have a workout partner who is 6 years younger than me. She is very results driven and likes to have a goal to work toward. And, she would rather work out with someone rather than by herself. That's where I come in! I show up when I s... Read more

First SB Game tonight!
Thursday, April 13, 2017      5 comments

We had our first softball game of the season today. I kept a close eye on the skies and my email as it rained off and on most of the day. The game was not cancelled and it was about 53' and cloudy when the game started. And windy. Did I men... Read more
Planning ahead for the end of the week
Wednesday, April 12, 2017      6 comments

As I've mentioned before, Thursdays and Fridays are hard for me. I'm tired by then and I want to eat to "reward" myself with food. My plan for tomorrow is to play softball. Since the game is at 6:30, I will be leaving straight from work to ge... Read more
Whole grain day!
Tuesday, April 11, 2017      6 comments

My challenge for today was to have at least half of my grains be whole grains. The only grains I had today were the tortilla chips I had with my taco salad at dinner. Since the first ingredient (of, maybe four!) was corn, I think I succeeded. ... Read more

Mother of the Year?
Friday, April 07, 2017      12 comments

I have two kids and I think I've done an okay job raising them. They have always behaved better in public than they do at home. They are polite to their elders and hold doors for me and for strangers. They know how to work (even though they c... Read more
