I took off five pounds in January using the Lose It app. Still working on it. I've finally recovered from the flu and saw a new doctor about my chronic cough. Have gotten relief with a steroid inhaler, and yesterday the doctor switched me t... Read more

Woot! Signed up for a Thanksgiving morning 8K in my town. Husband is going to do it with me. It's only the second year for this race. Previously, the Turkey Trot in our area was a week before Thanksgiving, which was really handy for me because w... Read more

Yup. Very close to the weight I was when I started Weight Watchers oh those many years ago. I can't decide whether to be dismayed by my scale number or impressed by how well I can run at this weight. I am impressed. But I want the weight of... Read more

Turned off my electronics last night 9 hours before my wake up time. My husband remarked how I woke up with a smile! Getting more sleep is helping. Today I walked 3.11 miles outside on hills and did 30 minutes yoga. The walk was wonder... Read more

Whew! I had a wonderful time Thursday night going out with my hubby to dinner, to see a movie, and then a music show that we happened to hear while walking back to the car. But I paid for it yesterday! The reason people my age don't g... Read more

Missed Some Goals Yesterday

Last night my husband and I planned to go see a movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel. It was excellent. He invited me to dinner beforehand, and I went. And didn't track! And went over calories for sure. Plus I forgot to eat a fruit. ... Read more

Yesterday I Was Angry

Wednesday, April 30, 2014      1 comments

Yesterday I was angry. My husband's leg was broken in 9 places last year in a martial arts clinic. It took 7 months before he could walk again. During that time, NONE of his instructors asked him about what happened, or offered any help. He... Read more

I'm working with the book, "100 Days of Weight Loss" by Linda Spangle. I went back to an earlier blog I wrote while I was making progress. Glad I did! I had figured out then that a good antidote to my usual afternoon bout of sleepiness is t... Read more

New Book I'm Reading

Monday, April 28, 2014      4 comments

"The Elemental Cleanse" by Pamela Quinn. It's only 99 cents on Kindle today. I just started reading it today. I believe it's about getting your entire life in balance, not "cleanse" as in juice fasting or that stuff. It looks like it's abou... Read more
