Minor guilt trip

Thursday, June 06, 2013      6 comments

It is pouring rain and we are under a tornado watch. No way I can go out and walk this morning. The problem is my brain says it is morning and the routine is: make a cup of tea, take your pills and a eat a half of a banana and then go for a w... Read more

Friday, May 31, 2013      7 comments

Finished painting the pantry today and I keep walking by to admire how good it looks. I cleaned out the spices and threw away so many that were really far out of date. I wish they would sell them in smaller sizes for two reasons: I hate throw... Read more

Almost rained out

Wednesday, May 29, 2013      3 comments

Noticing a trend...

Monday, May 27, 2013      4 comments

I just posted my steps for the week and noticed that every day I was in the 14000's. Now that is really pretty good for most people but I was pretty close to 20,000 for quite a while and I seem to have slacked off without realizing it. So toda... Read more

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
