  • My Medals Arrived Today!

    7/29/2016 5:59:56 PM, by SUBMOM2

    A few months ago, I signed up for the Run Disney Virtual Running Shorts series. For those of you not familiar with a virtual event, you're on your honor to complete the distance by a certain time, and the proceeds go to a worthy cause. In my case, I agreed to do three 5k runs, and I got to help the ... Read more

  • Selfie

    7/28/2016 9:38:24 PM, by KARMANNPOWELL

    My daughter takes a selfie and she looks like a super model. I take one and look like an old woman taking a picture of herself. Lol! It's good to see some progress. My husband thinks I look great. I'd like to loose at least another 15 or so pounds. However, I remind myself that this is a ... Read more

  • Can dogs have eating disorders?

    7/27/2016 12:16:50 PM, by KARMANNPOWELL

    We adopted a rescue dog after our min-pin, Howdy, passed away. Duncan is half min-pin, half dauschen. Most of the dogs we've had over the years have been rescues, so we were prepared for a possibly difficult adjustment period. What we got was beyond anything we could deal with. Duncan had b...

    I'm not known as a good cook, but I do enjoy cooking from time to time. I've tried several SparkPeople recipes and most of them are easy to make and tasty. Today, I used a SparkPeople recipe for low fat/low sugar banana bread. My husband, who loves banana bread, gave his stamp of approval. N... Read more

    Took the dogs for a walk this morning. My husband went with me, which was good because I got a bit light headed. However, I made it home. First real walk since surgery is in the bag. Means I'm back on the road to life. Yesterday, I made my husband some date nut bread. I managed to stay... Read more

  • Thank you, SparkPeople!

    7/17/2016 5:09:08 PM, by KARMANNPOWELL

    Yesterday, I was feeling discoraged and out of control. I blogged about it. I've been giving into sugar cravings. Just coming out and admitting it took the power of the craving away. I want to say thank you for the support and prayers. Through SparkPeople, I have discovered Made To Crave and... Read more

    7/14/2016 12:07:48 PM, by KARMANNPOWELL

    I was feeling better yesterday, which meant I was bored. I made some zucchini noodles with the spiralizer and let them drain for a couple of hours while I was trying to figure out what to do with them. In the meantime, I decided to try a paleo version of chocolate cake. Sweetened with dat... Read more

  • Getting better every day

    7/13/2016 2:20:31 PM, by KARMANNPOWELL

    I am still amazed that someone was messing around in my heart a few days ago. I'm still recovering from the ablation, but it is nothing compared to open heart surgery. Must be getting better because I'm getting bored. Food wise, I'm struggling. I can't do much so husband has taken over food. ... Read more

    I'm recovering from heart surgery on Friday. I got home from the hospital and our two dogs gave me a grand welcome. The cat acted like he didn't even notice I was gone. We went to bed early and I slept very well. Getting up this morning was not fun. I'm bruised in places I shouldn't be. ... Read more

  • A little down time.

    7/9/2016 6:24:46 AM, by KARMANNPOWELL

    It's 3am. I'm in the hospital and cannot sleep. The ablation went well. I had some bleeding issues, but those have been dealt with, it seems. We won't know the results for 3 months. Praying this is it. A nurse came out and told my husband that the surgery was done and I was heading to ... Read more

  • What difference does it make?

    7/3/2016 4:32:56 PM, by KARMANNPOWELL

    That's a question we've been hearing a lot during this election cycle, but it's also a question I've had to ask myself. I got up early this morning to get ready for church. I also wanted to have time to takes the dogs for a walk before it got too hot. We do set up and tear down at church and ... Read more

    My back has been hurting some this week. When I walked yesterday, I noticed that my hip was also hurting. When I got back home, I made an appointment with the chiropractor for today. My husband was outside working in the heat. He needed to eat lunch. I bent down to get something out the ref... Read more
