A Snowy Grand Canyon Visit

Tuesday, March 03, 2015      11 comments

It was a good thing I had visited the Grand Canyon several times before, because during our trip this past weekend, there was a major snow storm - and there was little, if any, view of the canyon. These are some of the photos I took as we hike... Read more

The Final Days 27-30 with Siebold

Friday, February 27, 2015      9 comments

My 30 days of compliance with Siebold will end this coming weekend. It was not a straight run - mostly because of the family visit that pleasantly interrupted my life. However, Siebold was always there on my shoulder nudging me and talkin... Read more

At the end of the day...

Thursday, February 26, 2015      8 comments

At the end of the day is when the energy is drained, and the strength has waned. The physical and emotional muscles supporting commitment start to waver. The best remedies I find are: --lose myself in a good story- either in a book or a... Read more

Day 25: Comfort Clothing

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      17 comments

We are all familiar with the concept of Comfort Food. It’s that soup or stew or hot meal that fills us up and warms us. It ‘sticks to our ribs’ and makes us feel good, inside and out. Well, I am just now becoming aware of my need for Com... Read more

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      10 comments

I am feeling better today. My stomach has calmed down, and I am not so achey. I spent most of the day processing photos. Let me share some of them with you. <... Read more

Day 24: Monday

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      5 comments

I felt under the weather today, with stomach issues, runny nose, and achey everywhere. It is no doubt leftover from my whirlwind grandkid time. So it was a quiet day, spent reading, and putting together some photos from the visit. My food ... Read more

Day 23: Family visit over - I've returned

Sunday, February 22, 2015      9 comments

The last of my family boarded an airplane yesterday afternoon. My husband and I went to a restaurant for food, then came home and collapsed on the sofa, watching missed TV programs that we had recorded while everyone was here. And who was ... Read more

Day 22

Saturday, February 14, 2015      12 comments

The day began with a 3-mile walk. Both my sons and one daughter-in-law also exercised for an hour this morning. The three grandkids were in and out of the pool all day. We took another long walk to check out a dead snake I saw on my morni... Read more

Just between us older bosom buddies

Friday, February 13, 2015      11 comments

When it comes to bosoms, mine have always been average. There was just enough to make feminine curves, not so much that they got in the way. They functioned perfectly when it came time to nurse my babies. Now, as I approach the celebratio... Read more

Day 20 A craving

Thursday, February 12, 2015      10 comments

This morning I have LOADS of cleaning and cooking and preparing to do for the arrival of both my sons and their families tomorrow night. But before I started any of the work, I took a morning walk. I actually had a craving for that ... Read more

Day 19 An Inspirational Friend

Wednesday, February 11, 2015      7 comments

I have blogged about this friend once before, but I'm doing it again because she sets such an terrific example. After two years of nursing her husband with ALS and just before his death, my friend was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. She i... Read more

Day 18 Tuesday

Tuesday, February 10, 2015      7 comments

This was another good day. Unlike yesterday, though, I did today go to the top of the range again. The top is a very comfortable place for me, I see. And that's okay. If sustainability is a major theme these days - then the top of the ... Read more

Day 17 Monday

Monday, February 09, 2015      13 comments

Blogging every day here on Spark People has the real benefit of keeping me focused on my diet and weight loss efforts - no matter what else is happening in my life. It doesn't matter how busy I get - I will, at some point in the day, have... Read more

Day 16 Sunday

Monday, February 09, 2015      7 comments

Tracking at the top of the calorie range is leading to a slower loss than I wanted. This coming week I will work on tracking closer to the middle or bottom of the range. That should help to move the scale down. My clothes are getti... Read more

Day 15 - Saturday

Sunday, February 08, 2015      7 comments

The day began with a 1 1/2 hour walk. (It feels really good to walk.) My food choices in the middle of this day included an ice cream cone - and some popcorn at the movies -- and they accounted for many of my calories on this day. I d... Read more
