Sleep
Wednesday, January 20, 2010      4 comments

Sleep is almost as important as water if you are to be your healthiest. How much do you need? The average is 8 hours. The range is 5 - 10 hours for most adults. My rule of thumb for a healthy adult is to not use an alarm clock. The body will nat... Read more
Water
Tuesday, January 19, 2010      6 comments

Water is so important. I find that by drinking it, it satisfies more than my thirst. I'm glad on SP that there is a consistency about all the beneficial effects of water. Usually, I drink 10 or more cups a day. I encourage you to drink at least ... Read more
Talk
Monday, January 18, 2010      3 comments

Tonight's talk at the study club is on the Eucharist. I will be able to refer to my trip to Italy in 2007 where I saw 2 sites where miracles took place - Lanciano and Orvieto. I have lots of pictures and postcards to augment my talk. Wish me wel... Read more
Louise
Saturday, January 16, 2010      4 comments

Louise is my cat. It seems as I am becoming more active, she is becoming lazier. Today, when I exercised, she laid on the bed. She used to go back and forth from me to the steps, now she either waits by the top of the steps or my bedroom door. S... Read more
Car

The adjuster was out to see the car. The damage from hitting the dear is over $7,000!!! It's time like this that I am glad to have insurance. I still have to come up with the $500 deductible I'm not going to let that stress me out though and bin... Read more
Deer
Thursday, January 14, 2010      9 comments

Last night on my way home, I hit a deer. It ran out in front of me on the highway where I was doing 55 mph. The whole front of my car is smashed. Between filling out a police report, getting towed and renting a loaner car, it was almost midnight... Read more
Baker's Square
Wednesday, January 13, 2010      3 comments

I am going out tonight to Baker's Square (restaurant) with my single's group. I will plan for it by consuming fewer calories earlier in the day and making a healthy choice while there. I will bring 1/2 of the entree home to have tomorrow. This i... Read more
Back on Track
Tuesday, January 12, 2010      2 comments

It is a good feeling to be back on track. I slept well and woke up today with a new emphasis on living healthy. Ate healthy meals, exercised and drank my water. It's the start of a new streak. Day bone and counting.... Read more
Falling Off the Wagon
Monday, January 11, 2010      9 comments

I had a free coupon to Famous Dave's for an appetizer. I chose the onion strips. They were delicious, but greasy, as they were deep-fried. I did blot a lot of the grease off. I haven't tracked yet for today, but I am sure I am over in the fat ca... Read more
My Afternoon
Sunday, January 10, 2010      5 comments

I got my walking in today at the art museum in Cleveland. I went with 3 friends. It was an enjoyable afternoon. We then went to TGIFridays for supper. I had a large glass of water with a little bit of lemon, a salad and a club sandwich. I passed... Read more
Committed
Saturday, January 09, 2010      3 comments

I've started reading 'The Spark'. Between the book and the site, I'm committed to change the status quo. I need to start eating more protein and drop some pounds. I like the way another member has put it - getting rid of the trash. I've got some... Read more
Restless Night
Friday, January 08, 2010      3 comments

I laid down for a nap yesterday and slept 4 hours. I guess I was just so relieved that I didn't need surgery. However, I have been up every 2 hours tonight. Finally, I decided to log on the computer and post. I will be going back to bed soon and... Read more
Ortho Appointment
Thursday, January 07, 2010      2 comments

I saw the ortho doctor today and overall the news was good. I have severe arthritis, bone on bone, which I knew. There is a bone spur, which I suspected. I've had bone spurs removed from both knees in the past. The new pain is caused from bursi... Read more
Feeling Better
Wednesday, January 06, 2010      5 comments

I have had a better day today with no sneezing. Breathing is normal. I guess the orange I got as a goodie, the prayers and taking care of myself did the trick. Thanks everyone.... Read more
May be Getting a Cold
Tuesday, January 05, 2010      6 comments

I've had nasal congestion today and now have started to sneeze. I've never had winter allergies, so I doubt that is what is going on. My best guess is that I'm coming down with a cold. As a cold is caused by a virus, I'll be drinking plenty of t... Read more
