Road Trip
Saturday, August 18, 2012      2 comments

I have been on a loooong road trip, taking my daughter to college far away from home. This wouldn't have been quite so much a problem for me with healthy eating if it hadn't been for the fact that my older son didn't want to drive because the c... Read more
Too many sweets
Sunday, July 29, 2012      2 comments

There is a reason I don't normally keep ice cream in the house. Today I ate way, way, way too much. Not to mention M&Ms. Oh, well, I will do better tomorrow. Since the ice cream is gone, I can't help but do better in that area. :-)... Read more
Fewer pieces

I am proud of myself - I got pizza for dinner tonight while the kids and I are watching the Olympics - and I only had two pieces. Granted, they were large pieces, and probably way too many calories, but in the past I would have eaten at least f... Read more

Well, I got back to mowing the back yard today. Because it hasn't rained much, the parts I had relatively recently mowed didn't need it today, but the parts I hadn't mowed recently were pretty bad. I think I got a pretty good workout, for me, ... Read more
New Scale
Friday, July 20, 2012      3 comments

So I bought a new scale for cheap from an online site. The reason I bought a new one was because I got tired of the old one consistently weighing everyone about ten pounds lighter than his/her actual weight. Of course, knowing that, you could ... Read more

Frustration! I had been doing pretty well maintaining over the long term a ten pound weight loss. Now, I need to lose much more than that for my health, but at least I wasn't gaining and I was feeling good about that. Then I signed up for... Read more
Not an inspiration

Last Saturday I participated in a cardio tennis class taught by someone I have known for years - a really nice guy. Unfortunately for me, of the eight people in the class, five were very good - two or three of them were extremely good, two were... Read more
Car/Weight Loss Study
Friday, July 13, 2012      1 comments

I can't believe it - I was just in the middle of a long blog post, and I accidentally hit a key - I think it was either the 'control' key or maybe the caps lock. Whatever it was, it deleted my entire post. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr... Well, I had wr... Read more

Well, we tested the car, and, sure enough, if the 'lock' button has been pushed twice, it is impossible to open the car from the inside. This is, to my mind, very dangerous. Tragedy could have happened yesterday just because of this. I need t... Read more
Near Death by Stupidity
Sunday, July 08, 2012      0 comments

Why is it I almost always seem to be commenting on my own stupidity lately? And I actually am not normally a stupid person. But I make really stupid mistakes, often with completely snowy white intentions, and the results have ranged from bad t... Read more
Sugar Cuts
Saturday, July 07, 2012      1 comments

Everyone gets a paper cut now and then. I am the only person I know - probably the only person in history - to get a sugar cut! That's the positive spin. The negative goes more like this - only YOU could possibly do something that stupid! ... Read more
Iced Tea and goals...
Thursday, July 05, 2012      0 comments

I am feeling tired and discouraged. It seems as though the route to many of my goals follows the pattern of - one step forward, two steps back - which doesn't get me very far forward in the end. However! I am going to assume that things will ... Read more
Odds and Ends
Wednesday, July 04, 2012      0 comments

I signed up to participate in a research study, working with researchers I have worked with several times before, and whom I like. One of them is a former professional basketball player and such a nice guy. These studies don't pay very much, b... Read more

I had such a wonderful time at my recent trip to California for a wedding/vacation/family reunion. The weather was just wonderful in Monterey - pleasantly warm during the days, cool at night. What a break from the Texas weather of day after da... Read more
Am I Out of Shape, or What?
Wednesday, June 27, 2012      0 comments

So yesterday I was at the airport, ditzing around, thinking I had plenty of time to get to the gate, when I heard an announcement that it was the very last call for the Las Vegas flight...and I saw the flight number they called on my boarding pa... Read more
