Updated pot boiled dry....
When I was in probably the 5th grade, one of my folks left a stainless steel coffee pot on high on the stove....hours later, there were puddles of stainless steel on the electric burner, and no bottom of the pot. Needless to say, they had to bu... Read more
In spite of myself, I haven't done too badly so far today: I ate a good breakfast, not bad at lunch, had red pepper slices for snack (along w/some Provolone cheese!) and used the treadmill and did a few other exercises before sweeping and moppi... Read more
Friday's musings updated
I'm quite 'up' this morning - hopefully it'll last all day.
Yesterday I worked on or completed all... Read more
Start of another day
I just finished breakfast, and am spending a few minutes on SP before getting on the treadmill. I know, walking outdoors would be less boring, but I don't handle heat and humidity well, so use the treadmill. It's not totally boring - I read a ... Read more
...off the wagon (updated)
It's evening now, and I've stayed within my calorie range for the day, even allowed myself a couple of hundred for a snack later. Late evenings are tough for me, but planning calories such that I CAN snack in the eve probably works better for m... Read more
Oops! Fell off the wagon
I 'fell' ('jumped' ?) off the healthy-living wagon for several weeks: not exercising, eating whatever struck my fancy. And yes, I gained some pounds. sigh. I plan to spend time today figuring out WHY I let myself do that, and also to resume h... Read more
I haven't posted since 6/23 and haven't even had use of a computer for about 2 weeks; and even before that we had several days of misery. My DH gave in and took the computer in for repairs. We had seventeen (count 'em, 17) viruses! Thank goo... Read more
A little help
My Dh showed me what he does when he gets the 'blocked' message - and it helps a little. But I'm still having a good bit of computer trouble, and I think we shouldn't keep getting the message at all if everything is 'resolved' like Norton (prot... Read more
Computer (and DH) problems
Apparently we picked up a 'cookie' somewhere and while it's supposedly been 'resolved' we're still getting a 'blocked' message quite often. My DH doesn't find it a problem because he barely uses the internet, but I'm having FITS trying to utili... Read more
"The best laid plans...." and "The road to hell is paved w/good intentions" and....
I had great plans to eat WELL at dinner last night, but blew it instead. I'm not beating myself up about it even if I should (I doubt beating ourselves up... Read more
Hip, Hip, Hooray!
Being home sure has made a difference in my quest to lose weight. I'd gained 6 pounds on our trip!!! But since we've been home (last Saturday), I've lost 3 of them. We're going out to dinner tonight to my favorite restaurant, Romano's Macaron... Read more
Ok, so none of the pounds I gained on our trip were water weight.
No big surprise. I am, however, determ... Read more
We made it home safely, and in good time yesterday afternoon. I'm so pleased to be back home. I weighed myself this morning, but refuse to enter it in SP - I gained a few pounds, then a few more.......... I'm hoping some of it is water weight... Read more
Ok, I may not be great w/dreaming up nifty titles, but hey, I never claimed I was! Haha!
This is our last planned night on the road and I'm eager to get home. We're going to sleep in tomorrow - until about 6:30 a.m. ... Read more
Had a good visit w/our grandchildren (the grown-up kids had too much to do!) It was fun and I'm glad we went. They live about 1,000 miles from us. The trip since then hasn't been so great, but I'm bearing up. God's grace IS sufficient.
