The Most Glorious Salad
I had the most beautiful, delicious, glorious salad tonight. It was made by a friend at synagogue, and had more ingredients than I have ever experienced in one dish. How many types of lettuce and greens can there be? They must have all been i... Read more
I Am an Athlete
Watching the Olympics is something I was brought up on. From the Opening Ceremonies to the Closing, we watched, day by day. I have witnessed tremendous things. Olga Korbut's spectacular feats that changed gymnastics, the African runner who wa... Read more

Frustrated about weight loss
I don't know what to do next. First priority, I think, is an overhaul of my eating. I am going to try having fruits and veggies being my main nutrition. No salt, sauces, additions.
I am exercising, doing my bike and weights. I am thinki... Read more
A song of ascents.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?

the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let my foot slip—
He who w... Read more
The Good News Is...
The good news is that the babies are getting better. Their brother woke up yesterday not feeling well, and with developing pink eye, which has been one of the symptoms of this glorious illness.

Please pray for us.
There has been so much sickness going around the family. I have been sick without a break of even a day since early November. I am not being overly dramatic to say this has been torture. Right now we have a horrible virus of some kind. Even ... Read more
This plate, above, is something a friend bought for me. It has Deuteronomy 6:4-9 on it. I love it so much. It is in our living room, the central focus of the room.

I Desperately Need Sleep
I am so tired it hurts. Everywhere. It's 5:15 a.m., and I am up. Often I don't go to sleep until now, because I am studying or just enjoying quiet time, but it is not usually a problem. Lately, however, I cannot sleep.
I guess I shoul... Read more
What SparkPeople Has Done for Me
I posted this on a motivation board tonight.
It would take a book to tell everything that SparkPeople has done for me. A list would be the simplest way to write it all out, but I know my list will include comments, so I will go for paragrap... Read more

Yesterday, one of my daughters and I went to meet Dr. Oz at a book signing at Barnes and Noble. I don't care too much about autographs, I just wanted to tell him that he and Dr. Roisen had changed the lives of me, and my family.

The photo is a self-portrait of my 19-year-old daughter, Hannah.
I am having a midnight--well--2:30 a.m. snack, a leftover from Thanksgiving. I am having yams. My mom always made it with orange juice, butter, brown sugar, and topped it of... Read more
Enjoying the Road to Accomplishment
A few months ago, I would have looked down this path and said, "Wouldn't it be nice..." I was so unhealthy I could not have even imagined walking down the path and around the bend. I was starting to have a hard time getting down the steps, jus... Read more

My undies are too big! I just started having problems with them today. They are bagging down so far, they are in the legs of my pants. Ok, so this is a good thing? I guess I go shopping for undies tomorrow. Whe... Read more

He leads me beside still waters...
I cannot get in water! Most days I drink none. I am a diet coke addict, for sure. I know that it is because I am not yet willing to give it up yet. I also grab it first, without even thinking about it.... Read more
