Thank you to all who wished me a Happy Birthday. I had said I was going to do something new that was active. Well, Donald and I went to the golf course to drive some golf balls. It was great fun and I was pretty good. I can drive pretty straig... Read more

3. Spent three days looking for a car (she has paymen... Read more
I am keeping my May challenge going. I have gone 47 miles of my 252.2 mile goal by the end of May. This is turning out to be a very busy and stressful month. The exercise challenge is going to prevent me from losing control with my eating.... Read more
I got up at 6:00 this morning as I usually do. I thought about my day. I have a full day ahead so I decided to get right on that stationary bike. At 6:24am I got started. I rode for 40 minutes. I went 13 miles towards my goal for the rest of th... Read more

Donald and I went for a walk yesterday. We live out in the country and some people think it's ok to throw their trash out the car window. We took two large grocery bags with us. While we were walking along "outbound" we moved plastic bottles an... Read more

In the past few months I have set goals for myself and then didn't follow through. That worries me because since joining Sparkpeople I have been able to challenge myself, join team challenges and set goals then stick to them. I don't know what t... Read more
It could have been a lot worse. This morning I weighed it at 151.5. Last Saturday morning (the day we left for vacation) I was 146.5. A 5 pound gain while on a 7 day cruise is remarkable. My goal was to stay under 150 but I'm happy with this ou... Read more
We leave on Saturday for our cruise that leaves on Sunday. I am not going to get all wrapped up in worrying about the eating. I am going to enjoy the food and all of the activities. I do have a plan though. I will make sure to choose some hea... Read more
I have named myself the STUMP QUEEN. I have dug up seven bush stumps over the last few days. Some of them were somewhat easy. The last one was a bear. It had a bazillion (my new favorite number, LOL) roots. I had to dig and dig and chop and cho... Read more
I dug up three bush stumps today. In North Texas we have black dirt that is like clay when it is semi wet. It was very hard to dig but I also had to figure out which way the roots were going. I had to use and hatchet to chop parts of the stump a... Read more
Oh my goodness. I am sore today. Donald and I worked on rebuilding a chimney yesterday. I tore down old siding, cut tar paper, and help hold up the new siding while Donald attached it. WHEW !!! Thank God I am in such better shape. I could not ha... Read more
