Sunshine Makes Me Happy
Monday, April 16, 2012      6 comments

That's why I moved to a sunny city decades ago. I knew, even as a child, that sunshine had a direct effect on my well being. Cost of living is high, but the sun is shining brightly so who's complaining? Wishing all a good day.... Read more
Hula Hoop Update
Saturday, April 14, 2012      4 comments

Since my hoop arrived a couple of weeks ago, I've only had a few chances to use it as I've been preoccupied with this dang water main leak that they can't locate. (smiling) Now that it's rained, it's going to be awhile for the ground to dry and... Read more
2 Major Thought Breakthroughs - #2
Friday, April 13, 2012      4 comments

The other day I semi-whined in a blog about the scale indicating no loss after a week of amazing exercise and eating. During my daily walk that day, I realized that I had written in that blog "why bother?" when I know very well the many reasons... Read more
2 Major Thought Breakthroughs - #1
Thursday, April 12, 2012      6 comments

It's one thing to read a platitude or cliche and shake my head with that "so true" agreement, and quite another when it clicks and becomes reality for you. Having read that "the past doesn't equal the future" time and again, it rang true but ne... Read more
Forever Plateau Continues. Why Bother?
Wednesday, April 11, 2012      13 comments

Today was my first weigh-in day since getting back on the scale. After a week of amazing exercise and calorie intake, I got on the scale. Unfreakingbelievable!!! Not one lousy pound down since last week. This plateau has gone on forever, n... Read more
The 4 Really's
Monday, April 09, 2012      8 comments

The other day, I caught a snippet of one of Wayne Dyer's tapes and it stuck with me. A few blogs ago, I wrote that you have to want this weight loss so badly that you can taste it. Dyer explained the four really's this way... When you re... Read more
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
Leaks, Estimates, Stress & Mega-Bills
Thursday, April 05, 2012      10 comments

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
I'VE REACHED GOAL WEIGHT!!!
Sunday, April 01, 2012      13 comments

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
