I am in the habit of measuring just about every morsel that goes into my mouth. No guess work is allowed in my kitchen. Cups, spoons, ounces, and grams are an integral part of my vocabulary. I'm a true believer that portions rule over grabbin... Read more
I hope to keep it true, today.
I've been maintaining my weight for quite some time, now, and am happy to report - so far so good. I fluctuate 2 or 3 pounds either way, which I'm used to. I'm a true believer in knowing your own body - knowing that when I'm a couple of pounds... Read more
Are you ready....
...for the 4th? I live right in the heart of a neighborhood that will be inundated with people sitting on the curbs with beach chairs and venders all around. They come from all over to watch the fireworks that will go off directly over my happ... Read more

Summer - where art thou?
My goodness it was chilly, today! This is very strange for the month of June and it's the third year I've noticed the change. I think maybe the Indian Tsunami did a number on our beloved earth. I have to admit, though, that sleeping with ... Read more

a total of 760 calories, today, which I calculated using my heart monitor watch. I didn't turn it off even when sitting but I sat seldomly, today. I truly believe that busy days will burn the calories just as well as outright exercise.

Boy do I feel the difference when....
I don't eat the healthy way. And it spirals to a vicious circle of cravings that just won't quit. I goofed big time the last few days. I indulged foods that should stay out of my menu from here on in. Luckily I didn't gain weight but the ind... Read more
Today I bought...
a heart monitor so that I can calculate calories burned from all of my activities not just from steps on the pedometer. The pedometer stops when my feet do but my heart rate keeps marching along. I will still wear the pedometer during an exerc... Read more
On the go? Count those calories!!
Burned calories hide in every corner of our days. I wear a pedometer when moving about be it walking, store runs, laundry runs, gardening, etc. I also wear a stop watch on my arm, clicking it on and off for each activity.
I know, I can ... Read more
Spring has sprung!
Oh glory be... I'm putting up with the April showers because I know that the May flowers (I know) will be the big payoff. Some of my tulips have opened, my rose bush is budding, and it won't be long now for the Azalea bush.
Oh, and my first... Read more
