Sweet Treat

Thursday, December 03, 2009      3 comments

I was just really wanting something sweet, but healthy. I took 9 oz. of a huge sweet potato and microwaved it. I cracked 3 walnuts and put the pieces on the soft, warm orange flesh. I topped it with 1/8 cup Smucker's Breakfast Syrup sugar free... Read more

Waist or Waste?

Tuesday, December 01, 2009      6 comments

When I was growing up, we'd save any leftover food. But almost every meal there was at least one thing that there was just a "dibby-dab" left. Mom would eat it or talk one of us into eating it so she didn't have to store it. Throwing it out was ... Read more

Celebrating in Threes

Monday, November 30, 2009      3 comments

1. Hurricane season is over! 2. Yesterday was cool outside so I grabbed a jacket out of the closet. A year ago I couldn't even get that jacket around me. Now it is definitely too big! 3. And best of all, after 30 days of SparkPeople strengt... Read more

I Once Was So-So-So in Control

Sunday, November 29, 2009      4 comments

Although this may not be the profound words I promised, I feel like typing. I've got eating things to think about. Yesterday I was feeling so-so-so very in control. I'd completed almost a month on SparkPeople and not gone over my calorie, c... Read more

5,000 Points

Saturday, November 28, 2009      6 comments

I made it! I just got a new trophy for 5,000 SparkPoints. Now what does this mean? I am something of a reward junkie. There are times I write a blog because I have something to express. Sometimes as I put things in writing they become clea... Read more

It Disappeared!

Friday, November 27, 2009      3 comments

I just spent 15 minutes writing a delightful, insightful commentary to include in my blog. Just as I was proofing it, it disappeared! Oh, well. Let me think about what I was saying. Maybe the universe is warning me not to put that out there. Sta... Read more

Thanksgiving 2009

Thursday, November 26, 2009      2 comments

This year I'm not cooking. Cooking the holiday feast is a wonderful and terrible challenge and chore. If I had never gotten to do it, I would feel that I had missed something major. But, I've had the honor many times. This year I am thankful tha... Read more

Me? Push Ups??

Wednesday, November 25, 2009      5 comments

I never could do a push up in gym in high school. My arms were really weak. I had trouble getting the car door to close. My swim team coach said if he had one swimmer with my legs and my sister's arms, we'd have a swimmer. When I tried out for c... Read more

Turning Lemons into Lemonade

Tuesday, November 24, 2009      3 comments

Often it is easier to see the down side. Maybe your alarm didn't go off, or the car is running rough, your favorite figurine got chipped, you friend forgot your birthday, your stock went down, you got an impossible assignment at work, you broke ... Read more

In Praise of Wheat Germ

Monday, November 23, 2009      1 comments

I have finally figured out how to meet my requirements for magnesium and folate!. I've added some wheat germ to my oatmeal. It's yummy, too. Two weeks ago I was having a real problem with sodium. Every meal plan I made was way over. Well, ... Read more

Blame the Elastic Waist!!?!

Sunday, November 22, 2009      4 comments

At Weight Watchers on Saturday our leader commented that she thought the elastic waist band is one cause of the American weight problem. She encouraged us not to wear elastic waists to Thanksgiving dinner. Do you avoid elastic waist bands ... Read more

OldMom Happy!

Saturday, November 21, 2009      3 comments

Went for a walk with my local SparkPeople team. Natalie went in the stroller and alternated walking, pushing, and being pushed. We walked at the local environmental center. We saw alligators, anhinga, herons, storks, egrets, butterflies, and acr... Read more

I Doubt I Ever Would Have Started a Facebook Page...

Friday, November 20, 2009      5 comments

but SparkPeople encouraged me to do it. So far, it has been amazing. I found an old friend from my Peace Corps years, 1971-73 in India. I had last talked to her in 1977 and had totally lost touch. All my younger relatives are on Facebook.... Read more

Natalie is with me all day today. She is even spending the night while her mom goes to a professional meeting tonight and her dad is working. It is a gorgeous day and we enjoyed hours outside this morning. It had rained and the water ran down on... Read more

My Middle Finger May Get Me In Trouble!

Wednesday, November 18, 2009      7 comments

These days my middle finger is used in a way it never has been before - it displays my wedding ring. My ring finger is just too small. Yes, I know I should go get it re-sized. I will eventually. So far, my husband hasn't noticed, but I'm pretty ... Read more
