I don't post blogs nearly as often now as I did when I first joined Sparkpeople. Back then, I used my blog posts as a way to work through some of the emotional ups and downs of trying to change a lifetime of eating and "lack of" exercise habits... Read more

Merry Christmas to me!

Monday, December 07, 2015      2 comments

One thing about being my age and having no children, is that Christmas tends to be very low key. That's ok with me since I was never all that into a lot of the holiday activities anyway and it keeps certain temptations to a minimum as well. ... Read more
