Self Esteem -- NOT
Thursday, August 05, 2010      2 comments

I've been blogging about not being able to get back into the exercise routine after a year of steady walking. I've taken the summer off with little bits of walking here and there. 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
Salad Topping
Friday, July 16, 2010      5 comments

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

I'm not going to tell U to say no to anything that can go into your mouth. U might want to say that after U read this. I started watching "Losing It With Jillian." I don't like a lot of what she does because I don't think it's reasonable to ... Read more
