Lazy Day

Monday, January 25, 2010      3 comments

I'm having a lazy day today. I have a fire going, my 2-year-old granddaughter is with me, and it's going to rain. I'm staying indoors. I just completed my strength training but haven't done cardio yet. Going to try while she's napping. Wha... Read more

Sunshine or Not?

Sunday, January 24, 2010      2 comments

I can't keep track of this Calif. weather. We had a long stretch of rainy weather plus all the assorted problems that go with it. We had high winds, hail, snow in the mountains, downed lines, etc. Then part of yesterday and today it was cold... Read more

I Did the Wrong Thing Right

Saturday, January 23, 2010      2 comments

The other day I went shopping. I blogged before that it's probably at the top of my list of worse things to do. I shop for clothes only under duress from hubby and DDs that I'm looking a big shabby. Anyway, by noon time I had had one disappp... Read more

Quiet Weekend?

Friday, January 22, 2010      2 comments

It might be a quiet weekend around here. Everyone seems to be leaving town. My DS and his little one (3), another DS, and my grandson (12) who lives with me are all going to L.A. for a kick boxing competition and then Disneyland. We got a c... Read more

Shopping Done, I Hope

Thursday, January 21, 2010      2 comments

Well, I did the dreaded shopping. First I went to Macy's Woman expecting to find some fancy clothes. Nothing. They got rid of everything after New Years. I asked if I should go to the regular Macy's and the woman said they only had clothes f... Read more

Big Day Tomorrow

Wednesday, January 20, 2010      4 comments

I call it a big day, but it's a big day in horror land. I have to go shopping. I've mentioned I'm going on a cruise and I need formal wear. Of course, my idea of formal wear is nice pants and a glittery top. So off to the mall I go. I HATE ... Read more

Rain, Rain, Don't Go Away

Tuesday, January 19, 2010      3 comments

I love rain and cold weather. It always makes me want to be more active--well, cold weather anyway. I could sit all day (not good) and watch it rain. And being in central Calif., we need the rain desperately. It started raining on Sun. and h... Read more

Formal Wear on Cruise

Sunday, January 17, 2010      6 comments

I've blogged before about going on a cruise in mid Feb. Now my DH and I are debating formal wear. We are not formal people. I don't own a dress! Haven't in 30 years. What to do? I absolutely refuse to buy something for 1 or 2 days out of m... Read more

Restaurant Calorie Counts

Saturday, January 16, 2010      5 comments

Thank heavens for restaurant calorie counts. We went to dinner last night and I wasn't very hungry. We were at Black Angus so I decided on a "simple" sandwich. I was going to have a chicken, avocado, bacon sandwich w/o the bacon. While my DH... Read more

Fun Cooking

Friday, January 15, 2010      3 comments

I've blogged before that I love cooking. I like being creative and being in the kitchen frees my mind from other things. I read a lot of cooking magazine and Spark People recipes. I have complete files on clipped recipes from the healthy to t... Read more

No Diet for Hubby

Thursday, January 14, 2010      4 comments

My husband refuses to diet. Yes, he's overweight--a lot--but his blood pressure ad cholesterol are great. Unfair, huh? Anyway, he says he'd rather die than spend the rest of his life eating low fat this and low sugar that. He LOVES the At... Read more

Sit too Much

Wednesday, January 13, 2010      6 comments

I think I sit to much--sit to hold grandbabies, sit to read, sit to babysit, sit to work on the computer, sit to read everything in SPeople. What to do? One thing I could change is to sit on the stability ball. I know that it's suppose to hel... Read more

I Did Something New

Monday, January 11, 2010      10 comments

About every 6 weeks we go to the coast, especially in the winter's fog so we can see the sun. When we go to Carmel, I have a set thing I do. We go to the beach and the beach is down a sand dune from the parking lot. I usually stay on top of ... Read more

Where to Put the Blame

Friday, January 08, 2010      5 comments

For years I wondered why mom didn't do more to keep my weight in check. I wasn't a fat child but I continued putting on weight through the years. I couldn't figure out why she didn't try harder to tell me about good foods to eat and the power ... Read more
