What a beautiful day! Near 70. Forecast to be warmer tomorrow and Tuesday. Our pleasant winter has turned into the same kind of spring. A few weeks ago, I pushed some pea seeds left over from last year into one of the 3 x 6 garden boxes. Shortly... Read more

Tuesday, March 03, 2015      5 comments

With the passing of our old sweetie, I've been sad, haven't tracked, haven't exercised. This is silly. It harms me and helps nothing. Gotta remember my comeback motto is No Excuses. Light the spark, girl, and stop moping. Do it. But I sure coul... Read more

Taking a different approach

Sunday, December 14, 2014      1 comments

Thinking about how bummed I felt last night, I wonder if I'm not my own worst drill sergeant and need to be less regimented attempting improved health and at least some weight loss. Working within physical limitations caused by a heart condition... Read more
