  • I just added a couple pounds to my weight lifting program

    1/20/2017 10:26:45 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    First of all, I'd like you to meet our new addition, Buster Brown. He's 11 weeks old Yorkie and weights a bit over 2 pounds. Mostly fur at this point. Buster is the little bitty ball of fur in my lap. Leroy is the one sitting on my shoulder, wanting nothing to do with the... Read more

  • Advise from an Expert

    1/19/2017 3:20:00 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Waiting for inspiration??? Here's some ADVICE from an EXPERT: Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best... Read more

  • Eat up with cuteness

    1/14/2017 8:40:27 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    So we went to see the puppies again today. And we took Bad Leroy Brown with us this time. And we have narrowed it a choice between two. LeRoy is having nothing to do with the "up close and personal, getting to know you" part of the interview. We will make the final decision in two weeks. And l... Read more

  • Non-Scale Victory!

    1/12/2017 11:23:00 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Today was the first day we've seen the sun in a long time! After the first couple of days of snow, we walked around the property in the fluffy snow . . . it was awesome. But after 24+ inches of snow and ice followed by heavy rains, we've been unable to get outside for our daily walks... Read more

  • VIVA LA LIFE!!!!!

    1/12/2017 12:44:57 PM, by ERIN_POSCH

    I spent most of my life dieting and trying to be the perfect size, the perfect mother, the perfect wife, OVERALL JUST PERFECT.... and after menopause, and a few other complications, I swore I would never do it again. Whatever I did would require me to change my entire thought process and way of li... Read more

    Had to share this. Not my story, but certainly relevant, regardless of age. My daughter starts middle school tomorrow. We've decorated her locker, bought new uniforms, even surprised her with a new backpack. But tonight just before bed, we did another pre-middle school task that is far more im... Read more

  • Walking in a winter wonderland

    1/3/2017 9:05:08 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    Around 2 feet of snow and still coming down. No electricity since yesterday and power company isn't giving so much as a guestimate when it might be restored. But we're doing great. Lots of dry wood for heat and generator to power well pump and give us some light to read by and light appliances ... Read more

  • Winter Wonderland

    1/2/2017 8:53:24 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    The snow started yesterday and continued through the night. Woke up to about 8 inches..... Bad Leroy Brown couldn't see over it, so we had to make a few adjustments..... by the time he got back inside, he was a snowball! I warmed him up and dried him with the blow dryer . . . which he loves.... Read more

  • Tie that sucker up with a bow!

    12/31/2016 3:43:41 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    I've been around here for a few years . . . . and it's time to clean out some of my old files, so here we go. . . . one more time for old times sake For the first time in many years, I really had hope. I had found SparkPeople and -- after 20-some years of being a vegan/vegetarian -... Read more

  • Reasons I exercise and eat healthier foods...

    12/30/2016 2:59:30 PM, by REBBUL67

    When I falter, I want to be able to look at these lists to help remind me WHY I am doing this: *For my health, and to reduce chances of me getting diabetes, heart issues (I already have high bp), cancer, etc all of which run in my family. *For my mental health. When I eat healthier foods and exe... Read more

    The mountains around our valley are white! And I love to see the snow. Up there. In the mountains. Not down here in the valley. However, forecasters indicate that the weather is turning colder . . . it's been in the mid to lower 30's, but it's dipping down into the 20's tonig... Read more

    12/27/2016 10:58:56 PM, by CAT-IN-CJ

    We made it through another Christmas. Whew. Pretty nifty that DH's daughter & son-in-law upgraded their 'old' tv (which was less than 2 years old) and gave it to us. It's about 20 years newer than ours. They also gave us a new gizmo (BluRay) of some sort that allows us to hook it up to ou... Read more
