I pre-ordered the Spark!

Tuesday, October 06, 2009      7 comments

I am so excited. I wish it would come tomorrow. I haven't bought a book in a very long time, now that I have discovered the joys of my local library. But Spark People made this such a good deal with the extra giveaways that I couldn't resist.... Read more

I've been lazy

Friday, September 25, 2009      10 comments

And I am not proud of myself. It is not a complete disaster, but I feel like I am developing some bad habits that are taking me in the wrong direction. 1. I've all but stopped tracking my food. 2. I've been lazy about tracking my fitne... Read more

My daughter just got engaged

Saturday, September 19, 2009      11 comments

This past Tuesday, Sharon's boyfriend called and said he was planning to propose to her and wanted our blessings. I guess it was sort of old-fashioned thing to do. The only problem was the ring. Apparently his mother had given him a ring. In... Read more

Another Update

Friday, August 28, 2009      6 comments

I just got back from the hospital. I don't think things are good, but I don't think he is dying. His blood pressure and sugar are still a little too high. The biggest concern is his kidneys. He also had a blood transfusion because his hemogl... Read more

First of all, a big hearty emoticon for all the comments and good wishes regarding my father. I really appreciate ... Read more

Dad is in the hospital

Sunday, August 23, 2009      10 comments

My mother called me at 8:30 last night to tell me this. He has congestive heart failure. A nurse came to the house in the afternoon to do an evaluation for some possible physical therapy. His vitals were through the roof. His blood pressure ... Read more

Going to a Chiropractor

Friday, August 21, 2009      10 comments

I have an appointment with a chiropractor tomorrow morning. I am posting this to see if anyone has any such experience. About 15 years ago, I had some terrible back pain. I mean, it was excruciating and debilitating. I went to a doctor. ... Read more

The first 1,000 miles

Friday, August 07, 2009      10 comments

I started a virtual walk across the country on March 1. I had two inspirations. First was America On the Move. This is a great program, but you are limited to the trails provided. My second inspiration was a team walk across the country on t... Read more

8 Week Battle #5 Begins

Tuesday, August 04, 2009      11 comments

Yesterday I began my third 8 week battle. It is funny that the person who introduced me to this battle has since left SparkPeople. The good news is that I have met some truly awesome people on this team. The bad news is that I have been yo-yo... Read more

RIP Frank McCourt

Monday, July 20, 2009      5 comments

This blog has nothing to do with weight loss. Maybe it does indirectly, only in the sense that it relates to the theme that all things are possible with the right amount of determination. I was truly shocked and saddened when I signed onli... Read more

A little off track

Sunday, July 05, 2009      7 comments

This was kind of a strange weekend. It was great to have the holiday, but I definitely went off track with my eating and lost some focus. Yesterday we went to the Mets/Phillies game in Philadelphia. It was the first time I was ever at a g... Read more

Michael Jackson

Sunday, June 28, 2009      10 comments

For some reason his death has really hit me hard. I am not sure why; I almost pride myself on not being any sort of groupie. Objectively I tell myself that if I died he wouldn't care, so why should the opposite be true? I always liked his mus... Read more

A weekend of wine

Tuesday, June 23, 2009      6 comments

I am back from my much anticipated weekend in the Napa Valley. In a word, it was awesome. And WAAAAY too short. My brother and sister in law have been married 25 years today. As childless professionals, they are pretty well off. They li... Read more

Blog Prompt - Do I force myself to eat healthy foods that I don't like?

Tuesday, June 09, 2009      7 comments

The answer is a qualified "no". Without question, I love to eat and got myself into this mess because of that. However, I really can't imagine going through life without enjoying food. And to be honest, I don't think that's a bad thing. ... Read more

Springsteen #2

Friday, May 22, 2009      5 comments

So last night I went to my second Springsteen concert in less than a year. Prior to that, I had never been to one, so it's not like I do this all the time. We had tickets for a concert at the end of July in Giants Stadium. Unfortunately, due... Read more
