I have been maintaining, which is good, considering the temptations at this time of year. Oh, I did indulge in some goodies, but I'm still 198! Yay! And even though I got to bed late last night and anticipated not being up to doing strength toda... Read more
Weary Not in Well-doing

I have finally broken the 200 barrier, with REALLY concentrating on keeping in my range and adding extra exercise in the form of more weight for strength and more walking for cardio. I had driven around the block to measure the distance on the o... Read more

Some foods just smell sooooo good, like microwave popcorn. When DH zapped some last night, i HAD to have some too. And more. Well, I gotta keep these cravings under control! Some habits are just hard to break. On the positive side, even thoug... Read more

Well, they say to bust plateaus it's good to change something in the exercise. I'm now using a 15-pound weight for my dumbell rows and tricep extensions; I'm strapping all THREE weights to my legs when I do the standing abductions and the seated... Read more

I really DO want to make it by the end of the month, and to do so I must be quite firm with myself. This is very difficult in light of the Swiss Colony goodies (Incredible Spreadables! mmmmm) that arrived. But I look ahead to the trip to Cusco i... Read more

After taking Foreman to the airport this morning, I called both places of employment to take off due to gastroenteritis. Then later on, just out of curiosity I weighed in. Two Hundred! Let's hear it for fever and diahrrhea!... Read more

A bit about the photos in the gallery...

The scenes from what I call the "pig roast" (though really, it was boiled...) take place in Foreman's back yard, and there are also scenes in his mom's kitchen/dining area on the back porch of her house. This is a common arrangement - Iquitos is... Read more

with my busy schedule it's hard to remember to do everything needed to remain a Community Team Member. Perish the thought of losing THAT distinction! I note, my goodness, it's over 10 days since I blogged! OOPS! So here I am. I'm on my way to be... Read more

Or, to paraphrase McCoy from the old Star Trek series, I'm an EDUCATOR, not a disciplinarian! The frustration is that I have to write a referral if I eject a disruptive student. Well, I've done that...gotta see who gets it...didn't do it during ... Read more

Well, not really...but I DID do a bit of a jog on Saturday morning while at the retreat. It was still quite dark, they had just woken the team. I did a run-100, brisk walk-100 but I don't know how many times or for how long. But more than I have... Read more

I am still grieved over the treatment Foreman - and other Latinos - received coming into the States through Houston. I am glad he came through Atlanta last year when he came the first time - pleasantly uneventful, he was even given 10 days more... Read more

This morning the scale said 201.5 (pre-poo, so I've entered 201!) much to my delight. Alas, this morning I only did my school-walk cardio, nothing extra, and I may not get to the strenght either: last might I was doing last minute prep for Forem... Read more

To my great joy and delight, my number one spiritual son from Peru, Foreman (we joke he is also the most expensive, as I support his pastoral and missionary work - he's featured in my Gallery) arrives Wednesday from Peru to spend some time in th... Read more

It's good to have lots of fruits and veggies. I try to have four of each daily. Usually I go for two fruits with breakfast. For instance, a friend gave me some pears, LOTS of pears, so I've had double portions.Well, I read that prunes are way up... Read more
