Wow, That Was Fun! Not!

Wednesday, May 27, 2015      5 comments

We got to join thousands of other Texans Monday night in feeling the effects of severe weather when trees started falling, etc. Power was off just over 24 hours and we had just got the freezer, the refrigerator, and a couple of fans hooked up to... Read more

In Memoriam

Monday, May 25, 2015      2 comments

This one is for Lance Cpl. Roger Allen Thompson, born May 2, 1948, died March 1, 1968 in Quang Tri, Viet Nam. I could spend many paragraphs writing about the anger I feel toward the politicians who curried this war but it doesn't bring back this... Read more

Sloppy Soggy Sunday

Sunday, May 24, 2015      1 comments

Wish I was in the sun at the Indy! I've done a whole lot of nothing today beyond typing away toward chapter 4 on the book I'm writing and dancing to some swing music on IHeart radio. I made a huge delicious spinach salad for lunch with strawberr... Read more

Not a Bad Week!

Saturday, May 23, 2015      2 comments

Down 6.4 pounds this week. I know most of them won't be anything like that but this was a great way to jump back in. I am taking a guilt-free day off today, at least from most exercise. Slept late, trying to decide what's for breakfast, haven't ... Read more

Sunshine in East Texas! It's a Beautiful Sight!

Friday, May 22, 2015      3 comments

We're still reeling from the last deluge but today was wonderful. A culvert washed out a few blocks away, causing a road to collapse on my route to work but since I don't have to use it until Tuesday, I hope it will be at least temporarily repai... Read more

AWOL Leaders

Thursday, May 21, 2015      5 comments

Yah know, I wouldn't deliberately hurt any one's feelings so if this steps on your toes, I beg your forgiveness but I am puzzled. I've just spent a couple of hours surfing Spark teams that sounded interesting only to find their leader threads ha... Read more

Day 4

Tuesday, May 19, 2015      2 comments

Today was "hump" day at work since we are off on Friday. I was so tired when I got home today but Ma and I got in our little walk, I had to take a pain pill last night so have been nauseated ever since. It seems worse this evening. All in all, ... Read more

Day 2

Sunday, May 17, 2015      2 comments

It's always gratifying to step on the scales and "lose" weight. Fluid retention is a problem for me as I have chronic kidney disease but I hit the right combination yesterday at least. Thanks to those of you who supported me yesterday; I really ... Read more

Oh My-This is Not Good!

Saturday, May 16, 2015      4 comments

Is it really THAT long since I did a blog post? I knew I had not been to SP since last September [2014] but not that it had been so long since I took a hard look at what I was doing to myself. 20 pounds later, here am I, back to take another cra... Read more

Weekend Was Tough

Monday, April 08, 2013      6 comments

Saturday, I wanted to eat a house and feel like I did, and Sunday I ate fried chicken. And a yeast roll. And rice with gravy. Should I continue? Probably not, just suffice it to say I strayed. Backtracking and back tracking today but this is goi... Read more

Bummer-definitely too much salt!

Thursday, April 04, 2013      2 comments

Don't you love it when you step on the scales after being so good only to discover your weight is up - 5 #? I knew my fat little feet indicated some problems. Oh well, I go way down on sodium and way up on water, and weigh again about Saturday ... Read more

Too Much Salt?

Wednesday, April 03, 2013      2 comments

Tomorrow is weigh day and my feet swelled up like footballs yesterday and have not come down despite my Lasix dosage. I hate that, knowing I have to weigh tomorrow and it will no doubt be up which is such a huge bummer! I had a smalled serving o... Read more

Fell - but not far and not for long!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013      8 comments

TGEIO or thank goodness Easter is over! but I actually did pretty good. The ham Mom bought was icky with lots of fat. Yes Mom, I really am the best ham-picker in our house. There were enough nice slices for Easter dinner's company but the rest w... Read more

Strawberry Shortcake and Yes It Was That Cold!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013      3 comments

Much warmer this am, only 36 degrees up in the country, 43 on my patio. Out here where the prison is there are no highways, loops, streets to store all the radiant heat so I guess that is why it is so much colder. Some days, I go out and get in ... Read more

Brrr! Icicles for the Easter Bunny?

Tuesday, March 26, 2013      4 comments

23 degrees when I got work this morning but no wind, thank goodness. Spoiler Alert: I'm blogging daily as a disciplinary action so this won't be very exciting. : ) My back, neck, shoulders are really paining from the extra reps of those exe... Read more
