July Jubilee

Friday, July 22, 2011      1 comments

I've lost 3 pounds so far in the Alabama July Jubilee challenge! That's pretty good for a "Slowest Loser". I don't get enough exercise in. Can't be helped, but I'm losing anyway!... Read more

I'm making myself blog something even if there's really nuttin' going on. Oh, some of the pecan trees here are dropping little pecans (immature ones). Hope we have some this year. I pick them up and sell them.( Every little bit helps.) ... Read more

Dreaming of a Mountain Get-away

Sunday, July 17, 2011      3 comments

Spent most of my afternoon looking at mountain cabins in Mentone, Al on the internet. Just dreaming of the crisp air, the breathtaking scenery, the serenity and beauty; the coziness, quietness, the hottub on the outside deck overlooking the vall... Read more

Tuesday, July 12, 2011      3 comments

I'm going to have a weight loss this week I know already, but I won't post till Friday, my "official weigh-in day." I feel lighter, thinner, better. Haven't tried my older clothes yet to see/feel the changes there. I CAN see the changes in ... Read more

"You should remember that though another may have more money, beauty, and brains than you, yet when it comes to the rarer spiritual values such as charity, self-sacrifice, honor, nobility of heart, you have an equal chance with everyone to be th... Read more

Survival Eating

Thursday, July 07, 2011      1 comments

I've eaten in the lower range of calorie allotment for a couple of days now without any real problem. No hunger pangs. I could eat, but not real hunger. This is good. This feels like control. I'M in control, not my eating. There was even a... Read more

Splurge Day!!??

Monday, July 04, 2011      3 comments

I'd already discovered that eating out anywhere does not satisfy me like eating home made. It's just not as good, thank you anyway. Today was a planned splurge since DH and I have been really good the past couple of weeks and it's a holiday... Read more

More sky than man can see, More seas that he can sail, More sun than he can bear to watch, More stars than he can scale. More breath than he can breathe, More yield than he can sow, More grace than he can comprehend, More love t... Read more

The "Inside Stuff"

Friday, July 01, 2011      0 comments

I lost 65 pounds four years ago and it seemed so much easier. I can't get to the gym as often as I did then, maybe that's part of it. It was nothing to lose 2 or 3 pounds in a week then. Wow. Age creeps up on you fast! But, I am happy to be... Read more

My Job

Sunday, June 19, 2011      1 comments

If anyone wonders what it is I do that is so active, I'm with a crew of ladies who clean rental houes on the beach. These are not cottages. These are gigantic places. (Google Halekai Gulf Coast Vacation Rental to see) I clean Hal 2, Hal 3, and V... Read more

Hubby and I decided this past Sunday night was going to be a splurge night and so it was... Back on it on Monday morning. Well... he had a doctor's appointment and I decided to go with him (mistake). I forgot to bring any of my healthy snacks an... Read more
