I have just discovered hunting socks in the sporting goods section of the discount stores. I don't hunt, so I'd never ventured up that aisle, before. Just happened upon it & noticed that they have a very nice selection of wool blend socks, for... Read more
Why am I bundled up more than everyone else?
This is a pic from a 5K that I walked last March. There was still a little ice on our route, but, the snow was all gone. It was plenty cold, as this is Michigan.

Before the weather got bitter cold, we were walking 3-5 miles, each day. Then, the cold & wind hit us. I'm lucky if I get 1 mile.....or 2. I bundle up. But, it reeks havoc with my sinuses.....I end up feeling head-achey, like I'm ill....but,... Read more
Ever amazed that you DIDN'T go over in calories??
I went over my calories, yesterday. I thought, for sure, that today was going to be a calorie disaster. But, NOPE. I am pleasantly surprised!
Every so often, DD asks to go to the coffee shop, with me. You know the kind. They sell latte... Read more
Restaurants & their calorie pitfalls
There's a certain restaurant chain (that shall remain nameless) whose entrees & salads are as much as a days worth of calories. It was one of my favorite restaurants, until I heard that yucky bit of news.
Family celebration brought us ri... Read more
The walks are working
It's a great motivator, to have DH taking an active role in all of this. We're going for walks, regularly. 2-5 miles, each day.
Our biggest meal of the day is lunch. Later there is a dinner salad. Those salads really help us to keep wi... Read more
Even the dog is on a diet
Our dog is not overweight, yet. But, she's getting pretty close! A month ago, she weighed in at 69-point-something (the most she has ever weighed.) Vet suggested we up her exercise & decrease the food. I've been meticulously measuring her fo... Read more
I've been "trying" for 2 yrs to get myself "back on track" with tracking my food. DH decided to start paying attention to portion sizes, healthier food options & has started using SP for tracking. This is just the motivation I needed, I guess.... Read more

Decisions & influences
As much as 18 yrs ago, DD used to get sick with breathing issues, landing her in the hospital a couple of times. It always scared us quite a bit, of course. The last time that happened was 18 yrs ago. We hadn't known she was going to have an ... Read more
No fries, plz
We went out to dinner for steak. Well, he had steak. I ordered a turkey & avocado sammich. We rarely eat out, but, were treating ourselves.
I'm usually too quiet to ask what the alternatives are, instead of fries. But, this time I did... Read more
Quite a few months ago, I had WALKED a 5K, and gotten sore feet from it. I walk some everyday b/c of the dog. So, it took me completely by surprise that I would end up with sore feet. The balls of my feet felt bruised. It lasted a few weeks,... Read more
Nothing New Under the Sun
As I've mentioned, we moved. I had to come up with new walking routes. The neighborhood is totally diff than the other. I wasn't sure where to start. Once I tracked the new routes, I realized that the distances of them are almost exactly the... Read more
New routes & new routines
We had promised ourselves that we'd do more walking, after the house sold. But, you know how easy it is to make promises & not to actually keep them. I wasn't so sure this would be any different.
Happy to say that DH has gone on some wa... Read more
