Chattanooga Choo Choo

Tuesday, June 23, 2009      3 comments

Winding up 3 days in Chattanooga. I will have to say that I have really enjoyed it. The food is rather overwhelming - what with Sticky Fingers Ribs; City Cafe desserts; Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger; Mallow Mushroom - you name it. But the opportu... Read more

First Summer Day

Tuesday, May 19, 2009      3 comments

Today might not have been the calendar beginning of summer, but it was in Tennessee. For breakfast, we had a little frost, followed by sunshine all day and a sweater cool evening. NO RAIN. Herself has gone to the gym, while I remain here i... Read more

Time does Fly When You're Having Fun

Thursday, March 26, 2009      5 comments

It's probably a function of getting older, but time increasingly seems to flit by. I was working in the yard this weekend when I struck up a conversation with one of the neighbor guys. He was digging away in his flowerbeds, planting stuff. He... Read more

Spring is Here?

Sunday, March 15, 2009      8 comments

It seems that the days just fly by. I was just noticing the last blog I had was a MONTH ago? So much has happened since then. Lost some dear friends to cancer, celebrated my grandson's birthday, and a birthday myself that I almost missed. Wha... Read more

Thirty Valentine's Days, but whose counting?

Sunday, February 15, 2009      13 comments

Who would have thought? MOB and I have been together 30 Valentine's now. This one almost didn't come due to that little heart attack thing in January, still here we are. If anyth... Read more

Poked and prodded, but OKAY

Tuesday, February 03, 2009      15 comments

Spent the day visiting the cardiologist and cardio rehab. After multiple poking and prodding, filling out wads of paper, got a relative clean bill of health - well, allowing for... Read more

Beautiful Tennessee Day. Who needs the Super Bowl?

Sunday, February 01, 2009      14 comments

Friday began cardio rehab in earnest. 30 min on treadmill and that Star Wars Big Wheel thingee. Then 20 min of weights, I'd laugh at the size of the wee dumbells, but I did work up a sweat for the first time since the heart attack. It felt goo... Read more

Ten Days Later

Monday, January 26, 2009      112 comments

Here it is Ten Days after the Big One. I have to say, I have had little inclination to this point not to stick with a rather rigid diet - but the MOB makes me toe the line pretty good too. The gunky sticky stuff from the electric leads are sti... Read more

Home again!

Sunday, January 18, 2009      9 comments

There can never be words to express the gratitude I have felt over the last week in Sparkmembers and others in the community who supported me and more importantly Linda through my heart attack and struggle to stay in the land of the living yet a... Read more

Last night was a beautiful snowy evening. Fortunately I didnot have to get out in it!... Read more

THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES IN CALIFORNIA

Wednesday, November 26, 2008      1 comments

It may be, but it was raining when my plane hit the tarmac last night and it is STILL raining this afternoon. Nevertheless, MOB and I are off to hike across the Marina Del Ray - after wolfing down copious amounts of yogurt, fruit, granola and b... Read more

Okay. It's working.

Thursday, November 20, 2008      3 comments

As the weeks seems to flit by, coming here to sparkpeople seems more and more a natural thing. My waist keeps gradually melting, my muscles more defined, my appetite changing. Not long ago breads and sweets were much more a staple. Now I have f... Read more

Thanksgiving is Coming

Wednesday, November 12, 2008      5 comments

Turkey Day will soon be here, along with all the temptations to derail weeks of hard work. I'm going to be making a serious effort to both continue my program through that week, and will really and truly be thinking of all you guys in the same b... Read more

Couldn't have fit down the chimney

Monday, November 03, 2008      3 comments

I intend to be a much slimmer and fit person this Christmas Eve than I was last year, or the last 20 years!... Read more
