I wouldn't normally blog the morning after a "slip," but.... so it is. Last night I had a meeting at my house, at which I served cranberry/orange scones. My husband had brought them home (they were on sale, of course!), and I'd mildly chastised ... Read more
It's 12:30 p.m., and though I've done little chores here and there, I've been on the computer mostly, and wish I could break this bad habit. There's tons of places to go in SparkPeople, of course, which I've explored a lot so far. However, there... Read more
I vowed to my "coach" that I would make a batch of ginger cookies without eating one. I just wanted to see if I could do it. This particular recipe is so delicious I actually like the dough better than the cookies! Of course, I couldn't eat the ... Read more

Today, I vow to live in the moment and enjoy being alive, feeling my body and its strength, and to t... Read more
Well (taking a big breath).... I've done it!
Reading Judy Beck's "Diet Solution," which recommends getting a coach. I've chosen my son, who doesn't live here, but is supportive, kind, and motivated for physical fitness. He spent Thanksgivin... Read more
My torn meniscus is still giving me a little trouble. Interestingly enough, though, my session at Curves yesterday made it feel better. Still being really careful on a couple of the machines (yellow dots all over the place in my end "report") bu... Read more

The recording is one from my chorus. I wasn't in the chorus then,... Read more
Imagine being backstage: concrete floors, eery monitors showing the events in front of the curtains, electrical cords snaking themselves underneath tables and chairs, and 85 women congregating themselves with gifts to give to the new Sweet Adeli... Read more
but I had tofu for supper tonight. I'm trying to cook out of my pantry and refrigerator, and the tofu had been in there for a long time. Fried the tofu in a little olive oil, grabbed a can of stewed tomatoes and poured it on top of the tofu, sea... Read more
I'm taking it as such. I had a banana at almost midnight tonight, when I was already 75 calories over my limit for the day. The reason? .... to bring my fruits and vegetables up to the required 5 so that my streak wouldn't be broken. (again!)

I've re-injured my knee several times from assuming I needed to exercise it, so my healing has been slowed down. Now I face a week of walking, stairs, standing on risers, singing and choreography, and at least ONE real vacation thing - a bus tou... Read more
in the neighborhood.... [I do miss Mr. Rodgers]
I've got some spinach to plant, and some rosemary to plant on both sides of my mailbox; we've been here for 25 years, and the perfect plant for that area just now occurred to me. Slow learner?... Read more
Challenge: a very painful knee that's keeping me from exercising. Actually, I HAVE been exercising, and I don't think it's good for my knee. What cardio exercise can you do that doesn't involve your knees? I'm looking into water aerobics... I sa... Read more
The day before yesterday, my second day of walking, I procrastinated till after dark, and then went out to our still steamy neighborhood. I've been a walker (till recently) for a long time, but I've NEVER had such a hard time walking. I was leth... Read more
