Tonight, I headed oubtside with my pruning tools thinking I would prune a few branches. Once I started, I went into full landscape beautification mode and I trimmed a lot of shrubs and a tree. Then I attacked the overgrown ivy behind and under t... Read more

Today's agenda: do a 40 minute yoga session, get back to writing, make appointment with a neurologist who specializes in back and neck issues. My health improves daily and it's gonna get even better, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made (... Read more

Easy Fat Free Bean Dip

Friday, June 22, 2012      1 comments

I was just making Loaded Nachos (a low cal recipe from Rocco DiSpirito) and realized I forgot to buy bean dip. I created an easy bean dip recipe totally by accident with a can of fat free refried bean, Rotel tomatoes and a few other ingredients.... Read more

New Job, New Routine

Friday, May 25, 2012      0 comments

I started a new job this week, and it's going to be a huge transition from the flexibility of working in my home office to the structure of "now I'm at work"/"now it's time for me or family". The hours are part time Mon-Thurs and don't start un... Read more

28 Day Bootcamp

Saturday, April 14, 2012      2 comments

Coach Nicole's 28 Day Bootcamp is really helping me to stick to getting in daily exercise. While some of the workouts are short, they still get me sweating, and I usually add some time on the treadmill to the shorter workouts. I like the variety... Read more

SparkPeople: Love It!

Monday, January 16, 2012      2 comments

OK, so yesterday, I voiced my objection to SparkPeople members' blog posts potentially being indexed by search engines and the Share Bar really bugged me (again, the Share Bar *can* be turned off in preferences, but it's not obvious). www... Read more

Do You Really Want to Share Your SP Blog?

Sunday, January 15, 2012      1 comments

It's obvious that some SP bloggers are very prolific writers who are looking for a large audience, and who probably wouldn't mind having their blog posts shared across the Internet. For those members, I think SparkPeople's share bar is a great a... Read more

Onward into 2012

Sunday, December 25, 2011      0 comments

I found out 2 months ago that I may have thyroid cancer and needed surgery. Eleven days ago, that surgery resulted in the words I was hoping to hear: "benign". I've had most of my thyroid removed and I'm hoping that the endocrinologist I'm sch... Read more

Frozen Yogurt Replacement

Friday, October 14, 2011      1 comments

I've been making a lot of conscious food choices lately. Last night, I was really wanting the smidge of frozen yogurt that was in the freezer. It's the low cal kind so wouldn't have hurt to eat it. But, I decided to try about a 1/4 cup of organ... Read more

Getting Better

Friday, October 07, 2011      0 comments

September was very on again/off again for me heathwise. I felt great some days, not so great others. Joint pain continued from moderate to severe and I had a couple of headaches. But better, overall. We're into the firs week of October and I... Read more

Today and Tomorrow

Thursday, August 25, 2011      1 comments

Today has been really great so far, on many levels. I just finished a long walk on the treadmill while catching up on the news (looks like Hurricane Irene is already making a mess in MD), which is the first exercise I've done in a few days beca... Read more

Frustrated

Friday, August 19, 2011      5 comments

The arthritis or whatever I have is flaring up again today. Probably won't work out, and that sucks because I know I won't be getting in any exercise tomorrow since I'll be out of town on business. 7 more days until I see a rheumatologist. I ... Read more

Getting Stuff Done as Exercise

Thursday, August 18, 2011      1 comments

Today, I did some heavy cleaning for 2 hours, even had to stop for water and worked up a sweat. Add about 45 minutes of hauling stuff around outside and trimming shrubs and I got in some serious movement, working all kind of small muscles as we... Read more

Back from Vacation, Screwed Up Less Than Usual

Friday, August 12, 2011      1 comments

I'm back from a few days out of town visiting family. While I planned to walk every day I was there, I only managed to get in one walk. I planned to eat better while I was there, but only managed to eat healthy breakfasts. Still, this is much... Read more

The Power of Sleep and Kicking Butt

Wednesday, August 03, 2011      0 comments

Had a rough couple of days, lots on my mind regarding work. I was spending a lot of extra time online and on paper analyzing options, and in turn, spent less time on my health goals, including sleep. So, I gave myself the gift of going to slee... Read more
