Saturday, March 13, 2010      12 comments

After working out, I spent the day baking cookies and preparing the trays to take to mom's nursing home plus a container for dad of all the goodies. The rain really picked up this afternoon and my backyard looked like a river. After cleani... Read more

Pecans, almonds and walnuts! That's what I did all afternoon - made spiced nuts. I'm heading up to Maine to visit dad. In the cooler weather, I make goodie trays to bring to the nursing home where mom is. I haven't brought the spiced nuts be... Read more

Wednesday, March 10, 2010      16 comments

I would say sparkfriends. Today has been really rough. I have been on the phone with dad off and on trying to be the strong one but crying when I hang up. I wanted to hug him so bad. I finally logged back in tonight and started reading comm... Read more

Well, with this beautiful weather and the snow out of the road, I have started walking outside again. Living on a cul de sac is great and when I make a loop around and back to my driveway, it's a mile. As I head UP my driveway and come to ... Read more

Monday, March 08, 2010      14 comments

It wasn't because I missed the cardio workout! Even with these warm, sunny days, there are still some large mounds of snow in the yard. You also have to understand that I'm an animal lover. Poor Ms Molly was declawed when we adopted her s... Read more

The good, the bad and the ugly!

Thursday, March 04, 2010      14 comments

This will be short and to the point. The good - sun was out, it was a beautiful day and I decided I hadn't had cashews in a long time so had some this afternoon for my snack. The bad - they were salted. Yes it was sea salt but it was... Read more

I found SPRING!!!!

Wednesday, March 03, 2010      27 comments

I was exhausted last night when I finally arrived home but it was so worth it. We had walked around the exhibit for over 5 hours. The minute we entered the center, you could smell spring. Then you saw it - flowers, tress, color, beauty, every... Read more

Monday, March 01, 2010      8 comments

BLC has challenged me and I've forced myself to try exercises that I'd never thought I could do. When I might have just said, "oh, I'll just do my routine for my knees", I looked at my notepad listing the daily workout and decided to get my but... Read more

Sunday, February 28, 2010      11 comments

My goals are short term, mini steps. I've looked at the big picture and know I need to break it down. I'm not setting any certain dates since things can happen. For example, today. I did my strength training and blc video this morning but we... Read more

Saturday, February 27, 2010      13 comments

The first day I logged on to sparkpeople - I thought to myself why am I doing this right before Thanksgiving. And I answered my own question - I'm doing it for myself and my family. I need to be the best that I can be for them and for me. ... Read more

Oh the weather outside is frightful!

Thursday, February 25, 2010      12 comments

Now, if you think I'm going to say let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....wrong! Up to this point, the snow hasn't been that bad. I did shovel off the back deck this morning just in case it really started coming down - but it didn't. It act... Read more

Wednesday, February 24, 2010      13 comments

Again, I received this in an email. I've seen it before but find it very inspiring and wanted to share. The comments toward the end are not Ms Angelou's but are funny so I left them in and the last paragraph is well worth reading. -------... Read more
