Lovely weekend

Sunday, September 27, 2009      6 comments

What a lovely mix of activities this past weekend! Our ballroom class met for the first time Friday night: my husand and I aren't very good, but it's a lot of fun and a great way to spend time together. Rumba (we'ver forgotten so much) a... Read more

Shopping in My Closet Part Two: Frivolity Frolic! (Not About World Peace)

Saturday, September 19, 2009      11 comments

It's been sunny but getting chilly and over the past couple of weeks I've been shifting the pastel/flowery/sleeveless summer cottons and linens out of my closet, slowly moving the fall stuff in. One last wearing for the tan cotton suit -- bye b... Read more

Charlie Care

Friday, September 11, 2009      9 comments

Charlie (my golden retriever) was pretty muddy this morning. He had been for a long walk with our son yesterday, with a swim, and although completely dried off his long, magnificent coat was tangled and matted a little, especially on his chest ... Read more

Stuff I Love or At Least Really Really Like

Saturday, September 05, 2009      10 comments

1. Husband -- 30 years later, what I still know for sure is that the smartest, luckiest thing I ever did was marrying Mike. 2. Kids -- works in progress (as all we are) but both terrific human beings who make me proud. And of course num... Read more

Rainy Lazy Weekend

Friday, August 28, 2009      7 comments

Latish on Friday night after a great theatre production -- it's raining on the skylight over my head and I can hear the wind howling gently. And the forecast calls for rain all weekend. Not such a bad thing, actually -- an excellent reaso... Read more

MAINtenance: After Three Months SP, It's My Main Thing

Tuesday, August 11, 2009      6 comments

Yesterday was three months for me at SparkPeople: and I continue to be amazed at and grateful for this remarkable site and all the people who participate in it! I'm continuing to track my nutrition faithfully. Most of the time I am hittin... Read more

Muchos Nachos Not-so Great!

Monday, August 03, 2009      6 comments

I was thrilled to be able to play golf yesterday -- it was nine holes only, and with a power cart: but still! Beautiful evening, best company (my husband); and we stopped for a glass of wine on the patio of the club house afterwards. "Let's ge... Read more

Persistence

Wednesday, July 29, 2009      3 comments

I'm enjoying the thoughtful comments on blogs from SparkFriends and in particular the message boards in my new At Goal and Maintaining team. It's very helpful to be part of a community of people who are trying to be healthy, know it's not... Read more

Beginning the Work of Maintaining

Thursday, July 23, 2009      4 comments

So far, I'm not getting much of a sense of how many calories I need to eat to maintain weight loss . . . so I'm just sticking with the programme for now. I don't want to be gaining weight, that's for sure, particularly since I'm still not able... Read more

GOAL MET! GOAL SET!

Saturday, July 18, 2009      7 comments

I was thrilled today to step on the scale and see 154.5 flash up. Tried the scale in four different spots on the floor: yes, really true, no wavering. Last weigh-in 157 and now I'm down below the 155 goal weight. So now I'm rethinking: is... Read more

Sparking for Two Months

Saturday, July 11, 2009      6 comments

Reading JOPAPGH's blog reminded me: I've also been at SparkPeople for two months as of yesterday, July 10. I've used the nutrition tracker every day for every meal and only been a little less diligent on the exercise. Meaning that although I h... Read more

Golf

Friday, July 10, 2009      1 comments

Glorious evening on the golf course -- just the right temperature, beautiful blue skies and interesting clouds, not too many bugs, wonderful golf companions, purple liatris and yellow daylilies coming into bloom in the flower beds, the second cr... Read more

A Daily Walk Around the Garden

Thursday, July 02, 2009      4 comments

It's amazing how much pleasure there is to be had in a little walk around the garden at the house where I've now lived more than 22 years. Every day there is something new in bloom: right now, I'm especially enjoying my floppy pale pink antiq... Read more

Uncharacteristic patriotism for Canada Day, eh?

Tuesday, June 30, 2009      1 comments

Tomorrow is July 1st. What we Canadians used to call Dominion Day. And now call Canada's birthday (it's our 142nd, if you're asking) or Canada Day, or whatever. The failure to be prescriptive about the name is in itself pretty typical of Ca... Read more

A Little Fatigue . . . Having Faith

Thursday, June 25, 2009      7 comments

I am sustaining my cheerful mood and feeling grateful for the excellent treatment I'm getting (reducing my statistical chance of recurrence from about 25% to maybe 2-3%) but: the cumulative effect of the series of treatments is making me somewha... Read more
