Time flies. I have been taking classes this fall at the local community college. It has been a lot of fun. Courses feel very different when you're not worried about grade point average and getting a job, etc. Am almost finished for the semes... Read more

Sleep is difficult to come by these days. I so love the long days of summer that getting to bed on time and sleeping in seem nearly impossible. How I love summer. And as always, it manages to slip through my fingers. It rained today and that... Read more

While I was watering the garden, one of my neighbors stopped by to tell me that it was snowing 'like crazy just a few miles from here'. We are expecting freezing rain Friday and Saturday. Groan.... We have a day or two of warmth then BLAM it'... Read more

Sometimes I get bored while pedaling away on my recumbent bike. The fact that I am steadily gaining strength and endurance does not ease the boredom. I listened to exercise music but ran into 2 problems. I can't stand tinny music, sorry, it's... Read more

The days are getting ever lighter. Of all things "winter" I miss the sun the most on this early trek to Spring and Summer! Daylight Savings is taking root, love the twilight creeping up to 7:30 pm. The rain has ended for a few days and temps w... Read more

Feb.18th: This month seems to be zooming by me. Of course that could just be the wind outside that is pushing the days along. No weight loss in a bit but for now I'm ok with that. I've not gained any either and clothes are getting loose so s... Read more

I am learning so much. Last week off came a little more weight: down a total of 7#s. Have decided no fretting allowed. The weight will come off eventually as long as I do my part: diet and exercise. Muscles are less sore. Am still sitting ... Read more

No gain and no loss this week. :-\ Wednesday a recumbent bike will be set up. I'm mentioning that here by way of holding myself accountable. Need more exercise but my back is still weak so I'm hoping that "riding" the recumbent will help g... Read more

Down 5#s. Am getting more consistent with drinking 8 cups of water. This has been two weeks of learning and relearning. I found that I almost never drink water and didn't even realize it. Am now also working on actually sitting for a meal! :... Read more

I usually access Spark People from my phone. Today I'm trying the main site. Am down three pounds. This morning read an article about ruining a diet plan at night. It is so funny when I find out that I am not the only one doing something. A... Read more
