Aging and Other Adventures

Tuesday, October 21, 2014      5 comments

I'm not sure when it happened. It was quick. It was slow, slight, subtle. It was something that obviously crept up on me catching me off guard. There I was standing in church after service ended with my grown son and a friend o... Read more

One moment in time

I'm scared

Monday, June 16, 2014      9 comments

Oh, I know I shouldn't be scared of anything, but I am now. I need help and I am asking the spirit of SP for it. My 190 has went to 200 lbs. I know I'm not eating correctly and I am telling myself to be 'happy' in this body. Bu... Read more

I have a confession to make. I am pretty chubby. Let me break this down even further. I am pretty, comely, pleasant to look at. I am chubby by fifty pounds. Hence the creation of my blog's moniker..."Pretty Chubby". ... Read more

Starting over ain't easy, but it's a good thing!

Insanity: the first day

Thursday, August 01, 2013      10 comments

These workouts are no joke. Just as before, I go at my own pace, rest when I needed to, and gulped down water in between rest stops. I was completely drenched! I did modify some of the moves -- the high knee jumps for example -- beca... Read more

Wednesday, July 31, 2013      7 comments

OK, so I'm watching infomercials during the time I was not feeling like doing anything and I studied with interest this fit young man whose moniker is Shawn T. Surrounding and behind him were these over-the-top fit people jumping, sweating, squ... Read more
