Eyes Bigger Than Stomach????
I have heard that phrase all of my life. Someone puts too much food on a plate and can't eat it all. That has NEVER been my problem! It's the opposite.
My eyeballs are the worst judge of portion size, even after all these years at goal. ... Read more
What is under my old tile floor
These are the holes left from the screws that had to be removed from under my tile. It's been 25 years, but I remember the installers in 1988 putting in a million screws ... Read more
The kitchen gets demo'd today
I thought and researched my options and choices in excruciating detail, decided that a total renovation was the only way to go. Enough with the piecemeal changes! Three months ago I signed the contract. I have selected each component (thank G... Read more
I hear people all time talking about how their efforts were derailed by something unexpected, an event or a person who presented a problem and they ended up eating over it because-what-else-could-they- do?
If you are driving and end up at a... Read more
Spark has changed again!
The Start Page screen is almost completely obscured and the points have changed. The Spark Blog is gone, the Insider is gone, the Health Highlights (my favorite) is gone, and it's hard to find the articles.
I'm sure I'll get used to it but... Read more
It's already started.
I talked to my son, the Registered Dietician, and it seems the American Dietetic Association has already proposed new and stiffer qualifications for dieticians. In former times, the dietetics programs were run out of college Home Economics depa... Read more
Will the obese now qualify for handicapped license plates?
I posed this question on one of the threads. I was at the store yesterday and there was an enormous woman in one of the electric shopping carts. I did not look at what she had in her basket, but I thought that she was avoiding the one exercise... Read more
Obesity is now a "disease"?
And what on earth does that mean? Do we really think that if doctors are paid to tell you that you are overweight, you'll just "snap out of it"? What can a medical community tell you that you don't already know, in agonizing detail? Cheetos m... Read more
I'm 64 Years Old Today
Like the Beatles song. I talked to Mom this morning and she doesn't know the song. All my kids do, though. What a generational difference!
My husband is 75 and failing from his strokes. He must be having more of them because his memory ... Read more
Why do we recognize ridiculous expectations in others but not ourselves?
I am an HGTV addict. Like much of America, I love shows like House Hunters, or Love It Or List It. On House Hunters we see people saying: "I want a big house with a big gourmet kitchen, hardwood floors throughout, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a gr... Read more
Eat to Live OR Live To Eat??
I hear people say that I should be Eating to Live RATHER than Living to Eat.
There is some kind of idea out there that in order to be healthy we should concentrate on nutrients and not on taste. Really?
I love Michael Pol... Read more
That Chip On Her Shoulder
Okay, the social gathering that was supposed to be so fun, wasn't. Again. We have a neighbor who is very overweight. She is certainly nice enough, I guess, and her kids are great. I don't know her husband well, but he spends time in the yard ... Read more
Well, it's gone. I turned off all the lights on the porch and left the room. When I went back an hour or so later, it was gone. The wildlife rescue volunteer, Kimberley, called me last night and told me that the fawn was probably still very cl... Read more
I LOVE to Shop!!! For Food!!
I am a shopoholic. I admit it. However, I can't afford the shoes or clothes that so many people like to shop for, so much as I'd love acquiring beautiful things for myself or my home, I just can't do it.
So I shop for food. Food is beaut... Read more
