Sunday, February 12, 2012      1 comments

I put all the ingredients into the spark planner and decided a serving could be 1/10 of a loaf... very generous! You could easily eat half the serving size pieces for a nice snack and still be satisfied. Coconut flour banana nut bread is q... Read more

I am a great believer that things don't happen by accident. So when I received a couple of utubes and articles about coconut I thought I would look at it more seriously... just for interest. Coconut flour is gluten free. Coconut oil is possibl... Read more

I discovered an addictive "carrot cake jam" at a friend's house and felt very guilty but put some on the fresh rolls she had made for breakfast. Oh so good. Gingery and sweet. I saw the same label at the health food store and decided I would ... Read more

Today I felt sore so I did an easier day. I took the dog for a leisurely 20 minute walk in the lovely sunshine then after dinner had a soak in the hot tub and did the minimum of swimming. Know what? That is perfectly OK. I am listening to my ... Read more
A new attitude?

I have a different attitude this morning and hope I can hold onto it. A friend has a life threatening and disabling dissease... not yet diagnosed but the options given to her so far are all bad. She may only have a couple of months ahead and yes... Read more

Yesterday was a great exercise day. I had a lot of chores to do in the B&B so all the steps add up. I walked in the pool reading a very interesting book so half an hour went past and I was still walking. I snow shoveled our 9 car driveway and... Read more
Twenty Five Cent Chores
Monday, January 30, 2012      4 comments

I read a blog this morning that reminded me of when my kids were little. I made a 25 cent chore basket and said for each chore completed that week the kids would earn 25 cents. Then I waited. Two of my DD's sat down with the list, made a lis... Read more
The crooked road
Saturday, January 28, 2012      5 comments

A spark friend pointed out that the road is not always straight on this weight loss journey. I read that and a light bulb went off in my head. I think I keep trying to go as the crow flies and end up up to my knees in muck struggling to keep g... Read more

I want to see some progress
Wednesday, January 25, 2012      6 comments

This morning I woke up wanting to see some progress. I looked in the mirror, stepped in the scale, noted how my clothes are fitting, tested my blood sugars... I really want to SEE something. I decided that since I don't see anything that... Read more
