Today is one of the best days in a long time! Two of my four brothers and three of their sons met me in a nearby town to have lunch today. It was so wonderful to see them! Of course, I conned them with a trip to Cabella's but hey, I got to eat l... Read more

Yesterday morning, the puppies and I were running behind schedule so we didn't drive over to the park to do our walk. To save time, we drove on into work and then walked up the hill on the road near the building. We use to walk this road every d... Read more

but in Michigan it's a cause for celebration! I was able to weigh in this morning and I'm down nine pounds. I'm trying to find when I started getting serious and tracking food, etc and it looks like it was 7/21 so that means only two weeks. Now,... Read more

I'm glad it's over. I lost my kitty, Henry on the 19th and was so sad. He was the first pet that I ever had die. It was a very hard time. Then on 7/31, unbeknownst to me, I see my swan family for the last time and don't take time to snap o... Read more

My drive to work is long and often tedious. God has blessed me over the years with the joy of watching a swan family each spring come back to the same little pond and raise their cygnets. I have pulled over to watch them numerous times. Twice a... Read more

Well, the puppies are happy and are contentedly sleeping away. We went on a walk this morning. Sunday is suppose to be a non-walk day but since yesterday was so crazy, we went today instead. My goal when I started out was to walk "to the bridge... Read more

Ok, so in a little over an hour I'm meeting a friend for breakfast. I so enjoy being with her but the things I love for breakfast should not be part of my day. Ugh! I'm trying to think it thru and not ruin my good track record but I'm a country ... Read more
August goals (already?!!!)

I can't believe it's August... ok, almost. Summer is nearly over and I haven't done one fun summer thing. How can that be so? So, I'm trying to challenge myself to move more during the month of August. I go in spells where I do pretty good... Read more

Yesterday, I had a frozen entreƩ for dinner. I had figured out how many calories I had to use and based my choices on that. But when I was done, I was unsatisfied. Yes, it was low calorie and low fat but I'm not sure that helped me. It was very ... Read more

the pups and I need our walk. If I didn't have to go on to work, I wouldn't care about walking in the rain. Some how, sitting in wet, soggy clothes for 9 hours doesn't really appeal to me. Of course, i guess they would dry at some point. Guess I... Read more
Shocking to feel so good!

For about three years now, I have been struggling with deep sadness. Some days, it'd be all I can do to just get out of bed. I've been praying for relief. I didn't sleep well on Sunday night so I was very tired all day yesterday. Last nigh... Read more
Congratulations to me!

Yesterday, I met some of the girls in my family at Lacomedia, a dinner theatre we like to attend. Good news - the show was wonderful, fun to be with "my girls" and the girl that played "annie" did a lovely job. Bad news - it's a huge buffet wit... Read more

How can someone live so long on this planet and not understand the simple math of calories in/calories out. I'm finding that my ability to bluff myself about the amount of calories in a particular food is still quite strong. I knew I had it in t... Read more

I filled out my food diary for yesterday and was quite surprised at how not-so-good I did. When I walked into work today i was pretty upbeat and thought I'd had a pretty good week so far. Yesterday, I couldn't talk myself into doing the work to ... Read more
