Keeping warm

Wednesday, November 26, 2014      1 comments

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. ... Read more

Less walks...

Saturday, November 01, 2014      2 comments

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??

Monday, October 27, 2014      2 comments

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

Friday, October 24, 2014      3 comments

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

Sunday, October 19, 2014      3 comments

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

Extra motivation

Sunday, September 21, 2014      4 comments

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

Friday, August 29, 2014      2 comments

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

Foot Saga

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

Monday, July 28, 2014      2 comments

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
