"They" tell us it's fall (or autumn), but someone forgot to tell 'Mother Nature' - it was 90 degrees yesterday and today is supposed to be the same! Our normal average temp this time of year is the mid-70's. We had the AC off for many days, bu... Read more

Better Late Than Never

I bought The Spark months and months ago, but it only collected dust until recently I started reading it while treadmilling. I'd lost weight while on SP, but 'plateau-ed' then regained some of it. I'm unhappy w/myself for doing that. Then... Read more

Uh-oh, scary article

Wednesday, September 01, 2010      1 comments

I just read a health article on SP that seems to be saying that people who are mentally active (such as enjoying crosswords puzzles for a long time) will show greater decline if alzheimer's hits. Hmmmm. Too bad. I'm going to keep on doing thi... Read more

Hi Y'all, I set the alarm for 6:30 this a.m. (and finally got up about 10 min later); drank an Instant Breakfast then went to the Fitness Center (of the resort where we are) and spent 30 min on the treadmill. I'm so NOT!!!! an early mornin... Read more

Thank you all for your prayers for my Mom (and sister). Mom is doing a bit better, but will be on antibiotics for about another week, then she'll get an x-ray to see if the pneumonia is gone. My sister reports that Mom is coherant, but brief i... Read more

Saturday's rant

This week we took our 6 yr old and 10 yr old grandsons to Dayton, OH to the Nat'l USAF Museum. We got there when they opened in the morning, and didn't leave until almost closing time. At that (7-3/4 hrs minus 35 min for lunch) we didn't spend... Read more

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

Start of another day

Friday, August 06, 2010      3 comments

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)

Thursday, August 05, 2010      2 comments

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

Thursday, August 05, 2010      4 comments

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
