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
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 Give UP!!!
I am giving up! No, not permanently, but for a day or two!

My Three Ps
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
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
Wise Sayings and Things to Ponder
It's no secret I live in Iowa. (You all get that, right?) We have a wonderful magazine called "Our Iowa" t... Read more
Why Me? Monday Musings
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
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
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
Thinking, Thinking, Thinking
Have you ever thought about how much time we spend thinking about food? Eat this; eat that; shop for this o... Read more
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
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
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
are packed up and ready to go! We're leaving in the morning for our very long ride home to Iowa from Arizona via south Texas!! Lots of miles, lots of riding and possibly way too much togetherness over a period of 10 days of being confined TOGETH... Read more
