What's inspired me.
I enjoy reading the blog postings. I won’t always comment, (maybe I’ll start leaving an emoticon) but I try to read several blogs a day. I find laughter, tears, inspiration, frustration, and real people reaching out. READY4CHANGE81 posted a bl... Read more
A WORK IN PROGRESS
Wow, it’s June, already. I really don’t think I am going to make my weight goal for the end of the quarter. Being so sick for most of April, it took me until the last week and a half of May to feel “back in the groove”.

REAL LIFE HAPPENS
So, April has not been a fun month for me. I really shouldn't complain about the weather, I live in Hawaii and don't have feet of snow or patches of black ice or a spring that doesn't want to start. There's no flooding going on and the tempera... Read more
I haven't been very active for the last few weeks. I am experiencing some GI issues again, and it is really making it hard for me to eat and exercise. I have been going back and forth between soup, ginger ale, ginger tea, and crackers, and wh... Read more

GREAT FOOD AND FLAT TIRES
So, today is my birthday, but we went out last night to celebrate. Dad's dialysis is Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, so I didn't want him to be too fatigued to enjoy the night, plus The Big Guy was off, so he could join us. We went to Nico's ... Read more
