Hooray! The dandelions are out! Oh, crap!!
So as I was getting ready for my lunch hour walk, I noticed the dandelions on the grass... a sure sign of spring. It's good to feel the heat of the sun, a warmer breeze, and flowers popping up everywhere. I'm also happy that I'm not allergic t... Read more
The conversation I had in the pantry
Ever have one of those days where you know you're hungry, but you're determined to eat healthy, but when you look at the pantry stock, you gaze lovingly at the really bad junk food and stare nastily at the better choices?
That was Saturday ... Read more
Of nicotine, hormones, tax refunds and procrastination
Oh, the things I've wanted to blog about in the last week are many! Unfortunately, my time is limited, and I can only type so fast. :-D
1) My Guy on Champix
His efforts are still going strong. Wednesday will be a month he's been on the... Read more
Ow! (aka Overdoing the Landscaping)
I must be getting stronger. Something possessed me Monday to do some landscaping, since it was such a beautiful day.
Our backyard has a pit at the moment, where the barn used to be. Now that the snow is gone, the pit is just as ugly as it... Read more
What's up the chimney, dear?
Easter morning, as My Guy and I wake up, he hears a rustling in the stovepipe to the woodstove. Since we live in the country, it's not all that unusual to have a critter (mouse, rat, squirrel, chipmunk) wanting to setup a homestead in our attic... Read more
Increased speed ---- OOOoooooOOOOoooo
Yesterday's walk was a really good one. For the first time ever, I managed to walk a kilometer in 11 minutes. Woo-hoo!! My short tree-stumps-for-legs didn't even have to run!
I mentioned this to My Guy last night, and he was quite happy ... Read more
Emotional Eating from Saturday Night
Sometimes I figure it out, sometimes I don't. Fortunately, I figured out why I overate on Saturday.
I've mentioned a few times that My Guy is now on Champix, to help him quit smoking. One of the side effects is irritability. Saturday nig... Read more
I hate the Bird
I was so hoping to write about the progress I've made this week, or about what I plan to do this weekend, but work is being a bear.
If anyone is using Hummingbird (eDOCS) 5.2 by OpenText, email me. Seriously. Because it bites.

So, my original blog on this topic having been overtaken by the Internet Explorer Gremlins, this one will have to be shorter, since I have to head out shortly.
While I was on vacation, I wanted to find out how I have been progressing with h... Read more
A really nice big blog....

Back from our vacation
Well, that was one fantastic vacation!!
Oftentimes, when I'm on vacation, I get bored, because I've lost my everyday schedule. That schedule doesn't just have a work purpose, but also a weight loss purpose -- it allows me to eat at regular... Read more
Of sodium, anniversary and smoking
Man, I've had a few very busy days at work, and I've got 2 more to go before I'm on Anniversary Vacation next week!
After looking at my nutrition tracker for the last several weeks, I see that my sodium intake is still way off the charts. ... Read more
Through a series of events Thursday night, we now have a "plug" stuck in our toilet at home. No, you really don't want the hilarious but gory details, but suffice it to say that last night, My Guy took the toilet off the floor, to get the plug ... Read more
How I broke the Carb Cycle
Before I started my weight loss journey, nearly 8 years ago now, carbs were my worst downfall. That isn't to say that I didn't have other problem foods, but carbs were always around me, and always being consumed first. And they were the easiest ... Read more
Hey look! Spring is springing!!
Ok, so it's still early, but spring feels close. Really close.
It has to be close if I'm walking outside at lunchtime instead of the walking track at the ice rink. :-D
My sore shoulder issue is being worked out. Today was my first m... Read more
