10 Reasons I Love Gardening

Monday, April 19, 2010      3 comments

1) I love the gritty feel of dirt on my hands. 2) There is a smell that rises from a garden, full of earth and sun, that is unmatched anywhere else. 3) Gardening is a feast for the eyes, like a fine patterned quilt of roses, violets, blackfo... Read more

What am I doing gardening in the rain? I live in the desert!

Saturday, April 17, 2010      4 comments

This is just a few of the plants I established in this past week. I started with almost nothing in my back bed, so I put out over 50 plants! What am I doing gardening in... Read more

Rain again!

Thursday, April 15, 2010      5 comments

We had over an inch of rain today and may have some more tomorrow. It just amazes me that we can have so much rain, when we live in the desert and normally have just 15 inches a year. So far we have 5.66 inches, 3.88 inches over normal. Will... Read more

Rainy days depress me!

Wednesday, April 14, 2010      2 comments

This week it rained or was overcast almost every day! I get depressed in such weather and have trouble moving, but today I gutted out 50 minutes on the treadmill. Rainy weather also means a low and my arthritis acts up, which doesn't help my s... Read more

Vacation Nostalgia

Monday, April 12, 2010      1 comments

Tonight I downloaded a few pictures of my vacation to Maine in 2008. I'm glad I didn't look at them this winter because it would have been depressing. It seems that each spring I focus on the vacation to come. 2008 Main and 2009 North Carolin... Read more

Sweet Victory

Wednesday, April 07, 2010      0 comments

Have you ever wanted something for a long time and when you achieve it, it seems less important than it was? Today was like that. I'm down 1 full pant size and couldn't get super excited about it. Perhaps my "dream" of buying new clothes ... Read more

Focus, focus, focus

Monday, April 05, 2010      2 comments

It's amazing how stubborn I have become. I know I should eat right and exercise, but in the past those two things have eluded me. In November, around my 51st birthday, I decided to make a change. It's been a slow process; stubborn folks take ... Read more

Things are falling into place and off my waist too!

Sunday, April 04, 2010      2 comments

It's spring and as usual I am energized, but this year it's different. I'm on track and loving the Spark. I've dropped over 10 pounds and have just 5 to go, but more than the pounds, inches are dropping too! So many inches that I've cle... Read more

Down another pound!

Monday, March 01, 2010      4 comments

It's amazing that I procrastinated this long, without success. What it takes to succeed for me is logging in my food. That one thing keep me on track and allows me to shrink a bit further. So now I have 6 pounds to go! I hope to lose it all ... Read more

Halfway and struggling

Saturday, February 27, 2010      2 comments

Well, my goal is 140 pounds and I am just over halfway there. Because I haven't focused on tracking my food, I haven't lost those last 7 pound. I know why; I don't seem very motivated. Maybe I'm intimidated by the idea that I would have to go... Read more

Today I must get started on putting things in order and packing. I have three days left, but I must not do too much or risk a relapse. So I'll put on my timer and stick to my priorities. At least I feel well enough to do something! Read more
