Dago Sunday

Sunday, February 26, 2012      1 comments

Growing up Irish/Italian then marrying what my Grandpa called an FBI, Full Blooded Italian, macaroni on Sunday was not an option. And yes, we called it macaroni not pasta. Meatballs, sausage and neckbones would float happily in my sauce that ... Read more

God Bless America

The title says it all, God Bless America. I am proud to be an American, land of the free and home of the brave. Heartfelt thanks to all who serve our country in the military and their families and to those who have given their lives for our fr... Read more

OK, I know this will shock you, I have a sweet tooth, a horrible sweet tooth that begs for attention after dinner each night. I try and have fruit as part of my meal most nights and it usually takes care of the demon sweet tooth but not lately... Read more

Half Way

Friday, September 17, 2010      4 comments

Yep, it's halfway today. Not halfway to my weight goal or anything like that at all. Today is halfway to St. Patrick's Day! And yes, it's a holiday in my house that will be celebrated with meeting up with friends for a pint after work. So p... Read more

Scrubbed 'em off, OMG!

Tuesday, July 27, 2010      7 comments

I can't tell if those were my freckles or bugs I scrubbed off after a glorious sunset bike ride tonight after work. 16 miles on the towpath at a good clip, for me at least but still slow enough to see the woolybear crossing the path. But the b... Read more

I am a Warrior not an athlete!

Monday, July 19, 2010      9 comments

There is a difference you know. I'll change my mind about a bike ride or walk if the weather looks iffy or I get a better offer. An athlete scoffs at rain clouds because the workout comes first, no matter how cute the guy is. I'll never run a... Read more

This is the week for cake, birthday cake that is. Sunday was my birthday and my son was in town with his fiance so they took me to lunch at Naya, yum. We came back here and had my favorite, white cake with white frosting, lots of flowers. The... Read more

A different sort of Mother's Day, again.

Saturday, May 08, 2010      6 comments

It's been a year since I blogged about Mother's Day and here we are again, Mother's Day only this time my Mom is gone. I miss her but you've already figured that out. I spent so many years as one of her caregivers and most of last summer and f... Read more

I've been stuck at the same weight for a week now and I'm not pissy about it for once. I know I've eaten clean every day and stuck with my work outs and it's just the scale that has issues. I feel good and look better and that is the payoff. ... Read more

Purple Oatmeal

Sunday, September 13, 2009      3 comments

Funny thing about it being dark in the morning when I'm eating my oatmeal. I usually eat at my computer while doing Spark stuff, a no no I know but I'm pressed for time and want to Sparkle all day! So Saturday morning when I made my breakfast... Read more

A Different Sort of Mother's Day

Sunday, May 10, 2009      2 comments

Today is Mother's Day but not like any I have known. It's the first time in 26 years that I won't be spending any part of it with my children. Having grown children living out of town changes everything. You put all of your love, time and ef... Read more

My hugest accomplishment so far with the fitness aspect of living healthier has been the consistency and enjoyment. I don't usually skip a work out and if I do it's for an outdoor activity like riding my bike. I look forward to starting my day... Read more

You have been warned, this will be a rambling blog. There is a fun Irish song called Rambling Bog and this is my version. In about ten days I start my new job after being out of work for 7 months. Yeah! I am thrilled but anxious at the s... Read more

Coupons of course and I plan my menus based on what the specials are for the week in the the store ad. Portion control on my plate has made me more aware of how much I buy each week so I only shop for what I know I will eat. I can always stop ... Read more

I'm thinking that all of this working out all week long every week is catching up and today I am just starved. It's a very good thing I only have healthy things here to eat otherwise I could pretty much demolish too much of just about anythin... Read more
