A new pal

Wednesday, August 07, 2013      11 comments

My husband understood how alone I was after losing our lab, Lucy. I am on our property alone while he works in another city most of the week. We have occasional bears, ma... Read more

We lost our Labrador to double ACL tears and Addison's disease

Wednesday, July 24, 2013      7 comments

Every summer I would go to our property to work in the peace and quiet preparing for the next school year. The only thing that kept me from getting an embolism in my legs was Lucy. She wanted to play ball, go for a walk, needed to go to the ba... Read more

Less chaotic

Monday, July 15, 2013      1 comments

We are down to the punch list the buyers want, and waiting for the assessor to tell us what the bank wants. This week it is windows, then another quick (hah! three hours one way) trip with a loaded truck to get rid of odds and ends things for ... Read more

Long time no see!

Wednesday, July 03, 2013      4 comments

Well, I haven't been on here much, and I haven't blogged in a LOOONNNNGGG time. It isn't that I stopped caring about weight loss. It is that it had to go on the back burner for a while. I retired from teaching full time. I spent a year gettin... Read more

Started to think I was losing the spark!

Saturday, August 04, 2012      2 comments

So, for the last two days (well okay for longer, but more pronounced the last two days) I have been ALL about food. Weird. I thought I was over this need to eat everything in site. I knew food would be there the next day. I craved ice cream,... Read more

The scale, the weight of the day. so what!

Friday, July 27, 2012      5 comments

Why is it that scale numbers rule our day? I am the same person weighing more as I am weighing less, except I let it determine my level of happiness, and that can determine my behavior toward myself and (ashamed to admit) others. I am a precio... Read more

Dead dryer, mower, keurig. . .

Thursday, July 26, 2012      7 comments

My dryer and my lawn mower died the same day. My keurig died two days later. I didn't panic. I didn't eat. I calmly went to Lowe's and bought a dryer and mower. Went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and unbelievably they exchanged my keurig. ... Read more

2 lbs in 2 day

Sunday, July 22, 2012      2 comments

Went full bore. Back on regular exercise detail. Back on water. Watching food carefully. Attitude adjusted. I can't do anything by halves. I always restricted my weigh in to once a week. Gonna try daily in order to keep a better eye ... Read more

Men and food

Saturday, July 21, 2012      6 comments

My husband believes every meal should be supper. Breakfast can't possibly be oatmeal and homemade chai (sugar and fat free). It MUST include meat--bacon, eggs, ham, sausage. Lunch can't be tuna on double fiber bread and crunchy crudite. ... Read more

i am up 11 pounds and sad

Saturday, July 21, 2012      7 comments

I have had a series of weird events help me to derail myself. I am NOT blaming the events, but my own inattentiveness to my inner healthy voice. Teacher appreciation ALWAYS involves food. Why is it people feel compelled to give food as ap... Read more

Arthritis and Remodeling do NOT mix!

Monday, July 09, 2012      0 comments

Well, I discovered how bad my arthritis could flare. Remodeling the bathroom upstairs has caused about 5 days of serious trouble with hands, knees, hips, and wrists. My right shoulder is impaired, my right elbow is downright painful. I slept ... Read more

Retired? Hmmmm. . .

Saturday, June 30, 2012      8 comments

So, I retired at the end of the school year. I don't expect to FEEL retired until all the back to school fuss kicks up, but I would like some R&R! Instead I am running, running, running. I don't think that is what R&R is supposed to stand... Read more

Remodeling is exercise!

Friday, June 29, 2012      3 comments

I am currently remodeling a bathroom. I demolished some walls around the tub, because there was tile damage and a leak. Then I refinished the vanity that some fool chose in light oak, when the rest of the house is dark wood. I fixed some porc... Read more

natural exercise

Sunday, June 17, 2012      4 comments

I discovered last summer that I really like natural exercise. I am a multi-tasker by nature, and so I find that I really enjoy exercise with a goal in mind instead of exercise as the goal. For instance, we have been clearing trees and brus... Read more
