    1/10/2015 9:32:20 AM, by IRIDEMYOWN

    My last blog entry was made July 2012. That's 2.5 years ago. It looks like I was making a post about once every 3 months or so. I must remedy that. I have been going to a local gym here every day this past week. Since the high temps for the days have been in the 30's*, its just a bit too cold for me... Read more

    12/28/2014 7:52:29 PM, by KNITSKI

    My eating plan went totally out the window this past week. I can't tell you why I did it. It's like my mind checked out. I lounged on the couch at my sister-in-law's house on Christmas night thinking about how lousy I felt. Is it because there will never be those sweet, fattening foods ever agai... Read more
