Learning New Things - November 16, 2014

Sunday, November 16, 2014      1 comments

I have been very inspired by my Spark Activity Tracker since it came a few days ago. Have surpassed 10,000 steps every day, much to my surprise. And this morning I took the dog and walked for 3 miles! Whew! Today was also my weekly weigh-in. L... Read more

Activity Tracker

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      3 comments

So I bought myself the Spark Activity Tracker and it arrived today. Not 100% sure how it works but at least I downloaded the software and synced it. As it was 8 p.m., there isn't going to be much activity today. I wonder how the system figures o... Read more

Veteran's Day/Remembrance Day, whatever way we think of it, this is a special day. All of those brave men and women who sacrificed so much for freedom. We owe them more than we can ever know. I went to our annual Veteran's Day Parade today.... Read more

From April 2013 to November 2014

Saturday, November 08, 2014      4 comments

Posted April 2013: I have had a really rough four months this year. One virus after another--cold sores, constant congestion, lock jaw. Upside down work schedule, threat of sequestration for dh and dsil, stress, stress, stress. So now it is... Read more

Feeling jittery

Sunday, August 03, 2014      4 comments

Three days of good going until yesterday afternoon. I ate a huge bowl of ice cream after having chicken salad for lunch. When I analyze why, part of it was pure habit. I like dessert. But why I ate the whole bowl instead of half--again habit. Cl... Read more

Today was a super long day work wise. We had an early assembly to start the new school year off. So I woke up at 5:30 and took the dog for her usual 30-minute walk, then drove to the assembly. Then I went over to the classroom to meet the team l... Read more

I went to a teachers' retreat today where there were loads of sugary goodies on the tables. I did have one piece of cake for dessert at lunch but avoided every other temptation. Yay me! I also pushed myself off the couch this afternoon and did 3... Read more

Lacing up my shoes again

I have gained five pounds since March. I had been afraid to step on the scale for the past two months and was actually afraid I had gained more. So the five pounds was a bit of a relief. These past few months have been very busy. Dh came h... Read more

All is well. Spent a lot of time today doing family history--had to reorganize my family tree as I had copied the wrong information over. Dang. But it's all sorted now. Went to lunch today with a friend at Olive Garden. Had a bowl of minestrone ... Read more

Golly it's nice to look at that Nutrition Tracker and see that I have tracked the last 7 days! And that it has been a very successful week emoticonRead more

Cole slaw vs french fries

This is actually an observation from yesterday. I went to lunch with dd at an old-fashioned diner in Bisbee. Most of the menu was fried, gravy, hamburgers, heavy breakfast--the usual diner food. I decided the least "dangerous" choice was a plain... Read more

Exercise and hobbies

Thursday, March 20, 2014      6 comments

Exercise and hobbies. Sometimes the two conflict. I have a rather odd hobby: I transcribe inscriptions from photos of old Irish headstones. A friend of mine who is a moderator for an igp-web project for Northern Ireland got me hooked. I am actua... Read more

Groceries and making meals

After my last post two weeks ago, I was hit with another bout of depression. Depression--when all energy gets somehow pressed out of me. I only want to do what is easy. I seem okay to people because I go through the motions in public. But at hom... Read more

First, though, I have to post a photo of my cutie patootie grandson dressed up for his 2nd grade Social Studies class as Daniel Boone. Contrary to popular folklore, Daniel hat... Read more
