It was really foggy this morning when I went out for my walk and some of it is still hanging around. I left the house about 7:30 and I was dripping with sweat by the time I got back about 8:30 so I definitely need to get out earlier while we ar... Read more

Are you really hungry?

Wednesday, May 22, 2013      6 comments

Last night while watching TV I got up 3 times and walked to the pantry and the fridge and just looked for something. I'm not sure what I was looking for and I was not really hungry but I wanted something. I settled on a Fudgesicle - 40 calorie... Read more

Riding the bike

If I track all my food and have the spare calories and carbs I am allowing myself one Pirouline chocolate lined rolled wafer each Friday. It is 30 calories and well worth every one of them.... Read more

After my walk this morning I went out and did a little gardening. In Florida it is sort of a year round job. So I pulled weeds, straightened some edging, trimmed some shrubs and admired the front yard which we have done a lot of work on. I i... Read more

Today is our daughter's birthday and she is 45! So in five years I will have a 50 year old daughter - surely that can't be right. My head tells me I am still "young" despite being on Medicare. Age has never bothered me as I can still do prett... Read more
