Getting Naked

Thursday, July 31, 2014      17 comments

On Tuesday I conquered the Silver Sneakers exercise class. Well, that’s using the term loosely, as I already wrote about how those “seniors” kicked my butt! Today was hard, too, but it was good. Yesterday was pool day. I have been lookin... Read more

The Joke's on Me

Tuesday, July 29, 2014      23 comments

Recently I joined our local Y. It is literally 5 minutes from where we live. I've wanted to do water exercises at the pool there, and I finally convinced myself that I am worth the investment of $30 a month. Sadly, the pool exercises that I can ... Read more

I am giving up! No, not permanently, but for a day or two! emoticon Richard had ankle fusion surgery on 6/25... Read more

My Three Ps

Monday, June 09, 2014      19 comments

Remember that old TV show called "My Three Sons?" Simpler times and a peek into the life that some of the early TV writers must have thought we would all seek to achieve. Actually, that has nothing to do with what I'm going to blog about, but m... Read more

Meditations for Women

Wednesday, May 28, 2014      14 comments

If you find meditation hard to do (I have trouble quieting my mind), but would like a quick way to reflect on helpful and important ways to improve your life, think about signing up for the free daily email from Jane Powell. There's a separate... Read more

Why Me? Monday Musings

Monday, May 26, 2014      12 comments

Did you ever wonder "why me?" I've fallen into that trap so many times it isn't funny. Why am I the fat one who can't say no to that extra serving of the yummy dessert? Why do I have to be the one who has to shop in the plus size section of the... Read more

My Personal Nemesis

Sunday, May 25, 2014      11 comments

Okay...maybe I can get into this blogging stuff. No promises...the jury is still out on that one. But, for today I think I'll write about my personal nemesis: evening eating. It might be really brief. Not much to say that hasn't already been sa... Read more

Blogging...who, me?

Saturday, May 24, 2014      14 comments

Do I have to? Why? Why? Why? It's part of the Spring 5% Challenge I've been in. This is the final week. I haven't done so well weight wise. And now, the last "living the good life" challenge is to blog daily. Drats...I was hoping we'd get away w... Read more

Honesty--Revisited

Saturday, January 18, 2014      11 comments

Just an update to my last blog about honesty. Not only did I not follow through, but I've added pounds and consequently, more work to do. Today I updated my weight, got a starting weight for my team's challenge, and put it all out there. Frust... Read more

Honesty

Tuesday, November 05, 2013      14 comments

Hubby and I have always prided ourselves on being honest and having plenty of integrity. Recently, however, I believe I was being less than honest. If I can't be honest with my SP friends and teammates, I certainly can't be honest with myself (... Read more

Fell into a big hole I dug...

and I’m having trouble getting out again. You really didn't think I was digging by hand, did you? Read more

Attacked by a Shamrock Shake

Friday, March 15, 2013      17 comments

Well, I guess in truth, I was the one doing the attacking. In spite of my best plans and intentions, I'm fallen quite short with maintaining healthy eating and exercise. I've gotten my stretching done each day for the 5% challenge, but no real ... Read more

Apples and all those things
