Gout Relief

Monday, September 27, 2010      4 comments

I am not a doctor, nor am I recommending the following in lieu of your medical treatment. But this is the story of a successful gout flare up with a very happy ending. Last weekend, I took my friend to Urgent Care. He couldn't walk as one... Read more

Challenges as Tools or Weapons

Sunday, September 26, 2010      8 comments

I just saw the DVD "Gifted Hands" about world-famous neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson, who surmounted many challenges in his life. He said that you can use challenges as either excuses to not do the things you want to do, or you can use them as ste... Read more

Slippery Slope Became a Huge Mtn, And I Went Down Down Down

Saturday, September 25, 2010      4 comments

I remember when the small spiral became a huge avalanche. It was last October. I blogged about how I went to see Lion King, and before the show, had a great dinner at a fabulous restaurant. It entailed a memorable dessert. I remember wri... Read more

Quirky Sparker

Friday, September 24, 2010      6 comments

It's been 1.75 years on SP(Jan. '09), and two years since starting my healthy lifestyle changes (October '08). Every so often I take a look at my SP experience and just overview some things that are in my consciousness about the site. -I ... Read more

World's Oldest Man Lives In Montana. His Secret?

Wednesday, September 22, 2010      8 comments

Not that I'd wish this type of longevity on myself with the life I've had (smiling), but what a sweet little man. (Plus, whatever time is in store for me, it might be good to take heed.) He's 114 years old, and I heard his sweet voice on the ra... Read more

HATE GENETICALLY-ENGINEERED FRUIT AND VEGGIES

Tuesday, September 21, 2010      10 comments

As I listened to several different news reports last night that they are now considering selling genetically-engineered salmon, it finally dawned on me. I knew it somewhere in my psyche and taste buds, but the light never really came on. F... Read more

Great Reminder & Motivator - Visiting Urgent Care

Monday, September 20, 2010      11 comments

This morning, I helped a friend by taking him to Urgent Care. Of course, this took up most of the day and I had the chance to sit in different department's waiting rooms to witness a variety of maladies. It was a great refresher course in why ... Read more

I HAVE NEVER FORGOTTEN THROUGHOUT THESE NINE YEARS

Saturday, September 11, 2010      7 comments

Not for a New York minute. God bless the family and friends of lost loved ones. In a way, we all lost loved ones on that mournful day. Always in my prayers - I will NEVER forget. God Bless America.... Read more

What about PH Strips?

Wednesday, August 25, 2010      19 comments

I've been reading a lot about testing our body's alkalinity, and using PH strips. Anyone have experience using these and tips? Overall, I guess I should send out a huge SOS.... I've lost a very dear person in July - the 8th in the last 2.... Read more

Still Struggling with Demon Caffeine

Monday, August 16, 2010      7 comments

A brief history...I only started drinking coffee as an adult. In recent years, even a half of a small mug daily makes me feel yucky. So, about four months ago, I did a great detox for 95 days until I realized that the green tea I'd been drinki... Read more

My Lucky Day

Friday, August 13, 2010      6 comments

Friday the 13th is usually my lucky day. I think we make our own luck, to a certain extent. Guess I should go buy a lottery ticket and go to a casino. Nope, my idea of good luck is the good health I enjoy and the love of family and friends... Read more

The Journey Stopped Being Fun about A Year Ago

Thursday, August 12, 2010      8 comments

Yes, SP site is fun. Nice people, reinforcement of good habits, etc. However, this dratted plateau has gone on forever, and I've gotten advice out of the kazoo (ouch!), which I've tried and tried. My body does not want to part with any mo... Read more

TOO MUCH WATER?

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      9 comments

Last Saturday, I started an extreme one-week experiment that I'll be writing about soon. Part of this one-week has entailed upping my water intake to 16 glasses (8 oz) per day. Yikes! The point of this is to feel fuller and, thus, less ... Read more

The Scale Game I Play (without intending to)

Tuesday, August 10, 2010      9 comments

For someone who never weighed herself until two years ago (I didn't need to most of my life), I now own two "good" scales. Neither agrees with the other, so I've stored the one that scores my weight higher. It must be way off. (smiling) A... Read more

Me? A SP Motivator? Thanks To All Who Voted!

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      13 comments

When the email came in announcing I'd been voted as a motivator, I honestly had to read it a few times before I could figure out that they'd not sent it to the wrong person by mistake! (smiling) Thanks to all who voted for me. During ve... Read more
