Thank heavens for rain!
Saturday, July 21, 2012      1 comments

We (that is, U. S. Americans) are never happy. We NEED the rain here. We REALLY need the rain. So, it rained and people whined and complained all day. I had lots of shopping to do today and everywhere people were complaining about the rain. ... Read more
Another sad day in America
Friday, July 20, 2012      4 comments

It's almost overwhelming to think of being trapped in a movie theater and having someone open fire. My heart to goes out to the entire state of Colorado. Columbine, now this. And, the nation, as well. We aren't under fire from our government (... Read more
I appreciate plumbers
Wednesday, July 18, 2012      2 comments

That may sound strange because the bills always look like the national debt. However, when you need a plumber, you need a plumber. Not having use of a bathroom is a minor inconvenience when you have more than one, but if you have only one, wel... Read more
Fresh garden veggies!
Monday, July 16, 2012      1 comments

There is simply nothing like veggies fresh out of the garden. I don't garden. Don't want to learn how. I'm a city girl who does not enjoy having her hands in dirt. Plus, at this point, I can't do anything on my knees anyhow. So, I'm thrilled ... Read more

A good day!
Saturday, July 14, 2012      3 comments

Today was one of those days when I was relatively pain-free AND had lots of energy. Got a major project done in the house AND worked-out for 45 minutes (treadmill and weights). These days most days are not like today, so I rejoice. I take ... Read more
Good to be back

I had forgotten what a difference it makes to stay connected to SP. Just checking in daily adds a level of accountability that I can't achieve on my own. Thanks, SP!... Read more
One pound = success
Monday, July 09, 2012      2 comments

Well, my REALISTIC and attainable goal is to lose a pound a week until I reach my goal. So far, I'm averaging 1 pound a week. It seems to come on a lot faster than it comes off, somehow. But the long and short of it is, it does come on one pou... Read more
Another Scorcher

Praying for the rain we're supposed to get tonight. That will cool us off AND help the earth. Everything is so dry. We need the rain. Still doing well with tracking my food and staying at the bottom end of the range. Next week I hope to b... Read more
It is TOO hot!
Saturday, July 07, 2012      2 comments

I'm looking forward to temps in the 80s next week. We have been hammered in the mid-Atlantic region, and there are still thousands without power. I pray for all of them and those who HAVE to work outdoors. It's been brutal! The good news ... Read more
Back, again
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      1 comments

I used to wonder why people went in and out of SP. Now, I'm one of those people! Heavens! My new job is wonderful -all that I could have hoped for - but, man I'm I busy. For one thing, I haven't had a commute in years. I mean 13 years! Th... Read more
Back after a long hiatus
Sunday, July 17, 2011      2 comments

June 10th seems like yesterday and forever ago at the same time. I changed jobs and the past two months have been one big blur. Needless to say, my healty rhythms got all out of whack and I 'found' some of those lost pounds. I am not stressed... Read more
Great workout today
Friday, June 10, 2011      0 comments

It was one of those blissful times when all circuits were firing and it just felt good. I even jogged a bit on my treadmill and I am NOT a runner. It was just natural at that increased speed. Woo hoo! Every day is not like that but I'll take... Read more
Great yard sale
Saturday, June 04, 2011      1 comments

I put almost 12000 steps on my pedometer just with the yard sale this morning. And, it was a success. $504! Woo hoo! After a nap and a wholesome meal I'm ready for a little walk on my treadmill.... Read more
Update on my resignation as master of the universe
Thursday, June 02, 2011      1 comments

The event went VERY well! It was a major success. We've received so many accolades. What a great team they were! I did gain a few 'emotional eating' pounds but I'm back on track and feeling good. The intense craving for sweets is gone... Read more
