The Water Leak Saga Continues

Sunday, April 08, 2012      10 comments

After a week of non-stop plumbing estimates for this water main line, meeting with insurance guy, and assorted other "experts" coming over to give me info, I feel like I'm in the middle of a Stephen King novel. First of all, for all of us w... Read more

Have You Noticed This About Goal Attainment?

Saturday, April 07, 2012      10 comments

I've noticed that, once I achieve small goals, it seems easier to achieve others that are bigger. It's like momentum and being on a roll. Seems that one goal met provides the tenacity for others. Conversely, once I get back into one bad habit... Read more

No Scale. Scale. No Scale. Scale.

Friday, April 06, 2012      8 comments

No Scale. Until I began this healthy lifestyle adventure, I didn't own a scale. Never needed to. Then, about seven years ago, many factors started adding bulk to my bones - overwork, less activity, hormonal changes, stress, etc. Suddenly, for... Read more

Today started out with what was supposed to be a simple repair to the lawn sprinkler. Guy comes, finds the leak is not something he can do. Still have to pay him for his two hours. Then two plumbers' estimates. Whoopee! Turns out to be ... Read more

I ordered one of those weighted hoops. Haven't done it since - well, I don't remember when. Hope I can get going with it and have fun.... Read more

My Nailpolish Smells Like Cotton Candy

Tuesday, April 03, 2012      11 comments

I'd bought a couple of new colors and while doing my nails last night, I started smelling a very familiar scent. Then I looked at the bottle and it's scented Cotton Candy color and fragrance. Sure enough, I found myself smiling at this as I'd ... Read more

Sugar On 60 Minutes Last Night

Monday, April 02, 2012      9 comments

I don't usually watch TV, but a friend invited me to watch 60 minutes with him as he's just waking up to the sugar syndrome. He was blown away by the studies' findings, and I told him that I've been telling him the same stuff for ages. (selecti... Read more

APRIL FOOLS! Okay, I admit that was a lousy joke, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to practice that statement. Hopefully, I'll make it come true in the near future. I say this at the start of every month when I ponder how quickly... Read more

I Didn't Win The Lottery Tonight

Saturday, March 31, 2012      10 comments

The huge jackpot numbers were just announced. Although I'm not a regular lottery player, I did catch some of the fever and bought a few tickets. If nothing else, it goes to help this financially unsound state.... Read more

Chocolate Eaters Have Lower BMI?????

Wednesday, March 28, 2012      12 comments

Every day there seems to be a new study reported, and today I heard of one done by the University of California San Diego. They found that those who eat chocolate regularly have a lower BMI than those who don't. Just like all those studies... Read more

March Goal Assessment & Planning April Goal/s

Monday, March 26, 2012      6 comments

It's almost end of March (already!), and time to look over how I did with "no night eating." Before I say "lousy," I have to consider that it's truly a lifelong behavior. So to expect it to change in a month is unrealistic for me. Mid-mo... Read more

Doing The Walk for San Diego Brain Injury Foundation Today

Saturday, March 24, 2012      10 comments

It's a short walk; my friend is part of the organization so we'll be walking together and with some other friends. It's a pretty location, and good cause. I'll be walking again later today, as I usually do either one long walk daily, or two sh... Read more
