Getting It Back?
I've not exercised much in the past two months. Lots of excuses--no time, too hot, just tired of the exercise grind. Well, I'm starting to start again. Got 15 minutes of walking in. I hiked a bit this past weekend--also fell down a small hil... Read more

I was out walking with my Grandson.
He picked up something off of the ground and started to put it in his mouth.

Self Esteem -- NOT
I admire salespeople even though I don't like them. I could never be one. I've tried it before but rejection is a horrible feeling. I know, deep down inside, that people are rejecting the product--not me. But I've felt like the people are re... Read more

I've blogged that I'm on sabbatical from exercise for the summer. Well, the old arthritis is feeling it. I can feel it! I have a hard time getting up from a chair, the feet ache, and the legs feel like rubber. I'm less active and the more I ... Read more

On a recent blog, someone said, "I just make myself do it." H... Read more
I continue to put off exercise. Today I managed to get in 30 min. Didn't like it any better than other times, but I did sweat and get my respiration rate up. I'll keep going whenever I can. But I'd rather be reading a book.... Read more
I've had salad two nights in a row and the best topping for it. My DD's mother-in-law makes it. She dices cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, celery, and sometimes puts parsley or cilantro in it. She put a small bit of olive oil and vinegar in it. ... Read more
