Ahh, a wonderful, wonderful day!!!
Today is a blessed day! It's a Thursday, when I do no volunteering or any other activity out of the house!! I was able to work in the kitchen for awhile, keep up my exercising schedule, enjoy some sunshine, and later I will do some crotcheting.... Read more
Great Job Achievers!!!
I have to say I salute those of you who are exercising while your body hurts. I have a relatively pain free 53 yr. old body, but these days my IBS is creating spasms that really mess my exercise level up. I know many of you are exercising with... Read more
Mother Nature is providing my fitness minutes!!!
Fall around my backyard is so fun. My winter birds, the Oregon juncos and the Hatches come back around the feeder, as does the little hummingbird (no more flowers to provide food). The squirrels are constantly competing for the corn kernels we... Read more
Doctor visits aren't all bad!!!
My health amazes me every year when I go to the doctor for my physical. Whereas there used to be dread and fear of the what if's involved, now I am able to approach it with more peace and confidence. Eating healthy and exercising have made suc... Read more
I'm getting there!!
Here it is, Friday night. What a week this has been!! I have wanted so badly to get to 200 for so long, and now, I just want to get off of it!! Downward, preferably! When I joined the sparkteam, The Slowest Loser, several years ago, I never ... Read more

Summers end brings such joy!!
I love this time of year!! It's like the last hurrah of the season! Fresh veggies from the gardens are appearing everywhere and the fresh fruit is all so beautiful! The flowers are all putting out as many colors as possible before cooler weath... Read more
That's one roadblock down!!!
Well, that was fun! I let myself blog every day this week just to see what it would be like to be more communicative on site. It reminded me of some things. It doesn't take very much time to give the people a hi!, it helps you to become more... Read more

Keep your eyes wide open!!
This is one of those pre-fall days that feels like fall. It's cool and cloudy out, darker inside. I am very thankful for feeling better and more energetic today. It's Thursday, one of my days off, which means I can do something for the whole ... Read more
Sometimes a compromise is necessary!!!
This is one of those Weds. I can't really figure out. It's cooler, perfect day for activity, and yet I feel like a slug. For those who have never seen one, a snail. Moving at his pace, you know. Unfortunately, it always creates a war inside ... Read more
Tuesday-the next day after Monday
