Salad Bar Danger Zone

Friday, November 15, 2013      2 comments

I went to Jason's Deli a few days ago with a lady friend, and was able to eat a very reasonable meal - one little cornbread, a small teaspoon of nuts on my salad, and a HUGE plate full of greens and raw veggies. I was so proud. Then, Toda... Read more

A new breakfast favorite

Wednesday, November 13, 2013      3 comments

I have a new breakfast favorite. In advance, I boil up some potatoes that are cut into cubes. I've been using these instead of eating lots of grains lately. But you can't eat a whole plateful at a time - maybe just half cup to one cup ful... Read more

Moving my household has gotten me moving!

Monday, August 12, 2013      1 comments

The past few months have been so busy. Bought a new home, got my current home ready to show for selling just too many times (sure wish it would sell), and cleaning up the new house -- all have been very physical activities. The new house ... Read more

Spring is just around the corner!

Saturday, March 09, 2013      4 comments

It's going to happen - spring will arrive soon! We had an awesome weather day today - low 60s and a little cloudy - but the air SMELLED like springtime. It was a perfect day to get the kayaks out for the first time this year, and spend a b... Read more

Surrender to those things you cannot change

Thursday, March 07, 2013      4 comments

Sometimes one can fight and fight - then suddenly realize that you cannot change it. When you surrender to a higher power, it can be an amazing stress reliever. Background: Mom is 91. Until a few months ago, she was vital and able to live... Read more

Flu

Wednesday, January 23, 2013      2 comments

All that really needs to be said. About 2 weeks ago, we were traveling, and all the warnings about the flu were on the news. So I was using Airborne, Cold Eeze, Emergen-C all day long. But the conference I was at included buffet meals 3 times p... Read more

Happy Holidays!

I wish everyone a happy holiday weekend. Stay healthy, and remember, it is not so much what you eat between Thanksgiving and Christmas, as it is what you eat between Christmas and Thanksgiving! I will be eating light for the next day or so... Read more

Reality -- and taking steps to change it.

Wednesday, December 05, 2012      3 comments

I was once an active, outdoorsy type. Visualize someone who hikes in the morning, then goes hang gliding, then rides her mountain bike for a bit. Someone who easily can handle a multi-day kayaking trip or hiking adventure or can do a 36 hour yog... Read more

Rocktown

Monday, November 26, 2012      1 comments

Less than an hour from me is an absolutely amazing hiking/bouldering/rock climbing area. I have heard about it for years, and several times started out there, but never m... Read more

Disc Golf

Sunday, November 25, 2012      1 comments

Also called Ultimate Frisbee. Not my favorite sport, but actually on a cool fall day, it was great fun. Lots of sunshine, but not too hot. Of course, when the wind picked up, the discs went flying everywhere!!... Read more

Holiday is over! Time to get back to eating right.

Sunday, November 25, 2012      3 comments

Okay, so the last of the hoiday leftovers are gone, the house is almost back to shape. Time to focus on the next few weeks -- the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas has always added 5 pounds to my frame. Not this year!! Monday, I... Read more

Getting back on track -- again!

Monday, November 19, 2012      2 comments

Another new week begins, and a new opportunity to start back on track. It was this week last year (just before Turkey Day), that I decided to get my life back in order. Well, in reality, I really haven't lost any weight in that year, but at Ie... Read more

Paddling along...

Sunday, November 11, 2012      0 comments

Awesome day! Dropped the kayaks into the Tennessee River just before noon. Bright and sunny weather but kind of cool. The sunshine warmed us up quickly, as did the brisk headwind that counteracted any downstream current. Nearly 2 hours later... Read more

How a Vision Board can Help Get Back on Track

Thursday, November 08, 2012      3 comments

So I fell off the path for a while - diverted from my route a little bit. Last night, I made my vision board -- clipped lots of pictures from Shape, Self, Outside, Get Out, and other favorite mags. Pasted them all on a mat board. After ... Read more
