My phone rang at 4:22 this morning which is always scary. It was my youngest son checking to see if we were ok. He'd already called his sister to see if they were ok. I asked if he was ok (of course) and he said yes, I am, but not the house. Fir... Read more

Wedding Day

Sunday, September 07, 2014      10 comments

My son's wedding was beautiful yesterday. The weather was a perfect 75 degrees and sunny. The one glitch however, was that they were directly in the sun and shortly after the ceremony started Kyle told the minister (who is Erin's aunt) that he w... Read more

Some of you have asked about my friend who had the stroke. He was sent to rehab in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. He is now able to walk using a cane held in the left hand. At first his leg wasn't working so this is great news. He hasn't had as ... Read more

Jan. review/Feb. goals

Saturday, February 01, 2014      10 comments

My goal for January was to lose 10 lbs. I lost 6.2 lbs. I didn't reach my goal, but I did do much better on nutrition and exercise. Nutrition has been much better. That's not to say I haven't eaten any junk, I have, but much less than I was. Exe... Read more

Thursday, January 30, 2014      9 comments

When I checked my mail this morning I saw that I was the motivator of the day. I'm not sure how that happened since I've only been back on plan for a few weeks. I have a very long way to go before I'm even close to my goal. I appreciate all... Read more

I can finally share my news

My daughter and SIL announced they are having their first baby. I've known since Dec. 27, but was told not to share until they got together with family at all the belated Christmas celebrations. They've been married 7 yrs. and if I do say so mys... Read more

Almost a Year

Wednesday, January 01, 2014      11 comments

Yes, it's New Year's Day, but that isn't the reason I'm writing this now. I realized it's been almost a year since I've blogged. Why blog when you're either gaining weight or losing the same few pounds over and over. On track for a few days, the... Read more

January in review

Thursday, January 31, 2013      13 comments

My goal in January was to lose 10 lbs. I lost 6 which is ok since I spent the entire fall gaining and losing the same 3 or 4 pounds. I spent a lot of the month working on building better habits, mainly exercising consistently and eating better. ... Read more

I started the day off with strength training, then started working on my basement. I went through some boxes, tossed some stuff, found some to sell or donate. I didn't get everything done, but I got a good start. Later I walked 45 min. on the tr... Read more

I suppose I should write these goals down since everyone else is! This year I plan to accomplish the goals I set instead of just writing them down and doing nothing about them. At least the ones regarding weight loss. Here goes: Lose 50 l... Read more

Week in review

Sunday, December 02, 2012      12 comments

I lost 3 lbs. this week (first week back always shows a bigger loss) which I'm pleased about. I'm trying not to focus on all the pounds I still have to lose, but am taking it one week at a time. I did get more exercise this week, although the we... Read more

Santa Came Early

I checked my mailbox at school this afternoon and found a letter addressed to me. Most of the time we get mail from within the district, not mail from outside. There was no return address which made me curious. I opened the envelope and found a... Read more

My weight loss has been similar to the football season

Friday, November 23, 2012      8 comments

I went to college at the University of Iowa and grew up near there so I'll always be an Iowa Hawkeye fan. I knew the season was going to be a rough one with young players and lots of injuries. I didn't have much hope for a very good season. Unfo... Read more
