One of those days
Tuesday, April 13, 2010      4 comments

I woke to a smattering of fresh snow. I left the house for a prayer meeting to sunshine and blue skies. I left the church to overcast and drizzle. Those conditions remind me of my own feelings this day. I've been down and up and then down ag... Read more
Another storm or just a little more wind?
Monday, April 12, 2010      2 comments

After a beautiful beginning to the week, I am sad to feel the windstorm today. Perhaps another real storm is on its way. We'll see. But, I'm using the day to get caught up on so many jobs around here. Bills are calling to me, laundry is not ... Read more
Spring is really here!

I can hardly believe that another winter has gone to sleep and spring flowers are raising their lovely heads everywhere I look. This change of season encourages me so much. I know that I can put away my winter wardrobe and begin wearing those ... Read more
Exhausted, but Satisfied

I just spent a week with my daughter's family while she had some surgery. I took care of her three children (7, 5 and 3 months). It seemed I never stopped moving from early morning until late in the evening. Still, it was such fun and so fulf... Read more
Stuck, but hopeful!

My weight has gotten stuck once again. However, being stuck is not necessarily a bad thing for me. I know that I have lost some weight. Success breeds success. I know the weight will start to move down again soon if I keep my resolve. I am ... Read more
One day at a time

Yesterday was not my best day. I didn't meet my nutrition goals and I didn't get in enough exercise. One of the outcomes was an interrupted nights sleep. The result of that has been a lazy morning without my usual energy and enthusiasm. And ... Read more

Well, since I celebrated 37 years of marriage yesterday, I see today as another new year. There have been so many ups and downs, but we have so very much to be thankful for - two beautiful children, two wonderful children-in-law, four adorable ... Read more

I'm helping with a lady recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I've known for about 2 years that her dementia was progressing. Now she needs someone to come in four hours each day so she is not alone and remembers to eat. She doesn't understand... Read more
Holiday challenge and beyond

My community offered a challenge to maintain weight between Thanksgiving and New Year's. I signed up as I had slipped terribly. I had gained 10 pounds over the previous six months or so. Between needing an adjustment to my thyroid medication ... Read more
Again, again, and Again!

Here I am starting over yet again and at yet a higher weight. I know I can get on track, but it is so very frustrating for me. The MS keeps me from exercising as much as I want and so even though eating is under control I can't seem to get my ... Read more

Our daughter's family came and left and I managed to eat and drink too many empty calories over the past four days. Now, I find myself a bit depressed and a lot discouraged. I know I can get myself back on track, but I also know that for me th... Read more

It seems that every time I start to get on track something interferes. The latest struggles include an exacerbation of my multiple sclerosis. The pain is not controlled. The fatigue is huge. And I am dizzy, weak, uncoordinated and struggling ... Read more

It's not easy. It seems every time I start to eat right and exercise something or someone happens that distracts me from the prize. For example, during the past few weeks we've had four sets of house guests for long weekends. I also hosted 30... Read more
No More Family Photos & What About That Blood Pressure?
Thursday, March 05, 2009      1 comments

I got slammed by my daughter-in-law a few days ago as she told me not to post any photos of my new granddaughter on any site that isn't restricted to family. So, off came the photos. I will take a photo of myself one of these days so I can mag... Read more

I feel like I'm going so slowly on this plan that it is barely progress at all. Yet, I have lost some body fat even though the pounds haven't budged much to date. I know I must miss logging some of the foods I eat and I also know that my exerc... Read more
