I actually wrote a long entry after the event and never posted it. Now that the Chicago event is over, I am revising it somewhat. I was very glad I went, and I had a good time. The fitters were extremely efficient, so things moved quite f... Read more

Suddenly I See

Friday, May 21, 2010      7 comments

The title of this blog refers to the song by KT Tunstall, also in the opening scene of one of my favorite recent movies, The Devil Wears Prada. It also refers to my epiphany about how different music can improve my workout. About two weeks... Read more

Food Issues (long)

Monday, May 17, 2010      8 comments

WARNING: This blog is very long. I feel like I am making up for lost time. Please do not feel obligated to stay with it. Why is eating such a complicated issue? Why canít we just eat to get nourished and to satisfy our hunger? For ... Read more

My Fall from Grace (literally)

Thursday, February 25, 2010      13 comments

Ok, as they say in I Love Lucy, I have a lot of 'splaining to do. I truly apologize for being MIA and losing my spark. It has been diminished but not extinguished. A lot of the issue is that I have been out of work since December 1. I ha... Read more

Mom's Driving Test

Saturday, October 31, 2009      5 comments

A few times this week I have alluded to some personal problems. I want to let you know what is going on. Also, on the off-chance that anyone has experience with these things, I'd like some advice. Back in June, my 81 year old mother had a... 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

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
