    For those who are obese, there is a interesting article on Dr Sears site about unhealthy vs healthy obesity. "One of great paradoxes of our obesity epidemic is that many obese individuals appear to be quite healthy. This makes the true believers in the Holy Grail of BMI as the standard for good heal...

  • Hunger Tolerance

    8/31/2014 12:14:29 PM, by JANEWATKINS

    I have now completed Day 12 of the Beck program which is to practice hunger tolerance. Since the program is 42 days and I started at least one month ago, I'm taking it in at my own time to say the least. I'm practicing it every day . . . just deciding when I'm ready to move on. I knew this particul... Read more

  • Of Mice and Men . . .

    8/29/2014 8:34:04 PM, by JANEWATKINS

    No, dear reader, this is not a broadway review. Rather it is my Scottish heritage creeping in again. Scots poet Robert Burns wrote this line in a lenghty poem: “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry” . . . which is what has happened to my beach blog series . . . which has become a ...

  • Curve Balls

    8/24/2014 10:27:15 PM, by JANEWATKINS

    Beach Day 3. Anyone who has arrived at adulthood has probably already figured out that life doesn't always throw the ball in a straight line over home plate. Those crazy curve balls! At this point in my life I have decided to just try to bat at them or field them and not let them rain on my parade... Read more

  • So, IBS sucks

    8/23/2014 9:12:39 PM, by JENSAWIP

    I re-gave up coffee recently, partly due to a nasty IBS attack. I also know that tea is better for me, too. This sucks. I love coffee. I love the smell, both when brewed & fresh ground. I make my brew with a French press & love the smooth flavor (I love Cost Plus Worldmarket beans). Some... Read more

  • 'Tis A Gift To Be Simple

    8/23/2014 7:18:08 PM, by JANEWATKINS

    Beach Day 2. Those who know me are now thinking, "Great! Jane is going to talk about how simple she is." No chance. I like to pretend I have above average intelligence. Well, average maybe? At any rate, this is my second installment of my "Adventures in Dogsitting" which is really just a thinly ve... Read more

  • Failure? Never

    8/23/2014 7:30:13 AM, by OLDEROWL

    I have been following Leo Babauta's blogs and one of his latest blogs at helps us to believe in ourselves regardless of whether or not we meet our goals. The main point of his blogs is that we are human, and life events can't always be controlled; therefore, ... Read more

  • Rise and Shine (Baby!)

    8/22/2014 1:20:47 PM, by JANEWATKINS

    Day 1 at the Beach. What's not to like about this "chore"? A friend is going to New York for her son's ceremony at West Point. She is gone for 11 days and I'm the dog sitter. This sounds humdrum until you see where I'm staying: two blocks from Neptune Beach. Yeah. I can be a real humanitarian whe... Read more

  • Aw, dang

    8/21/2014 9:41:51 AM, by JENSAWIP

    So, I've been having lower back pain for a week or so and finally made it to a chiropractor/acupuncturist yesterday. After examining me & taking x-rays, it turns out that I have hyper curvature of my lower spine (not a doc, don't know the technicals!). And the most likely cause is...what for it...... Read more

  • Ignoring Me?

    8/20/2014 9:01:00 AM, by JANEWATKINS

    I have been ever-so-faithful about getting on my Spark site for months. I log food and fitness, read articles, spin wheels, enjoy blogs and friend feeds, get recipes . . . etc. But this morning I decided to blog . . . for the points. (Greedy?) I couldn't fot the life of me figure out to do the most ... Read more
