I've never done a charity walk but I'm seriously thinking about it. Paul Mitchell Beauty Supply is sponsoring a 1 and 2.5 walk in a local park. The entry fee is $25.00 and lunch is supplied. I think this might be a good start. I've walked th... Read more

Does death come in threes? I've heard that and it's happened many times. I could be that I'm just more aware of it when it happens. About 2 months ago, my best friend/neighbor died. Yesterday my cousin's husband died. Both of these people ... Read more

My Bad
Friday, March 12, 2010      6 comments

I'm not giving up! I have gotten close to several people who no longer sign in to SparkPeople. I think they've probably gained weight and didn't want to admit it. I think I've gained a couple of pounds lately but I won't quit. I haven't been... Read more

Having an Off Day
Saturday, March 06, 2010      2 comments

Today is one of my off days. I don't feel like watching what I'm eating. I'm not eating sweets and junk, but I'm eating what I feel like. Which is carbos. I've had a sandwich, a piece of toast, and a light enchillada. I also had a lot of fr... Read more
