The Tale of the Banana Squash

Tuesday, July 26, 2011      9 comments

Here's a little background - I don't cook much. I've always hated it. I probably always will. As such, I haven't heard of a lot of things that most others have. Banana squash being one of them. On one of my walks last week, a lady on th... Read more

I've gone to weekly acupuncture treatments for the past 10 weeks for a variety of things that I'd like to get in balance. This is a great place that has helped me in the past, is inexpensive, and has terrific people. They have locations in San... Read more

Friday, July 22, 2011      5 comments

I have not been satisfied with my energy level, despite doing the healthy things known to keep it up. My friend swears by these B-12 shots, and they are inexpensively given at several whole foods locations by a professional. You can also choos... Read more

Renewing My Vows

Thursday, July 21, 2011      9 comments

Well, at least in a manner of speaking. I've pondered this for awhile now; I can't really call it starting over because it's not. Here's the scoop and a recap of the past three years. In October '11, it'll be 3 years that I officially sta... Read more

Doing Better w/Sugar & Need Feedback on Blue Man Group... Worth going?

Wednesday, July 20, 2011      10 comments

Okay, in a nutshell, I was off sugar for almost three months until a few weeks ago when I thought I could handle "just a little" and gobbled everything in sight to the point of feeling very sick. Now, four days back on track without sugar (... Read more

Okay, I don't have horses, but I love the song that Toby and Willie do - Whiskey for my men, and beer for my horses. My Himalayan brothers (not my brothers, they are brothers to each other - smiling), pictured here on my SP site, are not as... Read more

Blame It On the Moon (and other random thoughts)

Friday, July 15, 2011      10 comments

Yesterday I felt totally out-of-sorts for no apparent reason. Just awful. I tried to ignore it, but I was puzzled as to the cause. Last night, I looked out the window to see the glowing full moon. That explains it! No kidding, I've always b... Read more

Making Friends With My Nemesis - Sugar

Wednesday, July 13, 2011      11 comments

Up until a few weeks ago, I had a nice little streak of no sugar going. I think I was up to 96 days without!!!!! I was convinced that I had it beat and that I could return to do "just a little." (yeah, uhhuh, right) My intent was to teach mys... Read more

Tuesday, July 12, 2011      5 comments

I recently read that it's important to drink water soon after awakening, as some of our body's moisture evaporates during the night. Also read that it's important to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up due to our metabolism starting to s... Read more

Wearing Out Lots of Walking Shoes. How Long Do Yours Last?

Monday, July 11, 2011      7 comments

Just thought about all of the running/walking shoes I wear out, and wondered how it is for others. I'm a walker, not a runner. But I buy running shoes and there is only one brand and style that fits like a glove. I go through a pair... Read more

Off to the Lake

Sunday, July 10, 2011      4 comments

Now that I've decided to get back to blogging, I can't think of anything to write about. (smiling) Maybe the well is dry when it comes to my journey with food and exercise. Not in a bad way, just no angst. Staying active, eating well (okay, p... Read more

I Want to Buy A Scooter-Never Too Old for Fun

Friday, July 08, 2011      4 comments

I have to admit that I'm a child in an adult body. (smiling) And never one to worry about what others think, that's not my main concern. There's a scooter built for adults that I want on Amazon. It's a Razor Lux and looks like a bundle o... Read more
