Sunday, November 22, 2020      6 comments

I'm not holding my breath, but today is the first day I've felt a bit better. I had a lovely hot shower and tried to tidy up my oh so messy kitchen. I don't feel as if I have overdone it, but now I'm feeling shaky and drained again. Baby steps..... Read more

Friday, November 13, 2020      11 comments

I am now on a very unexpected two-week vacation. I feel like I have a bad cold, but the test doesn't lie. I wish I knew where on earth I contacted it. 99% of the time, I'm either at work or I'm at home. I get my groceries delivered contactless... Read more

I finally hit 11 pounds down this week. My goodness, it took a little over a month to get here, but I'll take it! WooHoo! I bought a small apartment sized washer about 3 weeks ago. After finally figuring out how to connect everything and ha... Read more

After a very shaky start to my first week back on WW, and filled with dread, I was quite surprised (read Flabbergasted!) to have lost 8 pounds. I actually weighed myself twice just to make sure! I know this can happen the first week, and I ... Read more

Monday, August 10, 2020      6 comments

I woke up in a much better frame of mind this morning. Last night I planned out my day, set my goals, packed my lunch, and planned my meals. I got up earlier this morning and danced for 22 minutes. I'm starting slowly as I have been a couch... Read more

Made an early(ish) trip to Wal-Mart. Acquired what was needed, including the fixings for Mimosas. (Yes, they were needed! But not overly indulged in) It was gorgeous out and had I not had perishables in the car, I would have ventured out to Suns... Read more

Apparently, last week took more out of me than I realized. I spent the better of the morning and early afternoon dozing in and out in bed with my fur babies. I think I enjoyed it almost as much as they did! The only problem with me being ho... Read more

Wednesday, May 20, 2020      6 comments

The first chapter of my new year started on my 61st birthday 3 months ago when I adopted two beautiful adult cats. I finally accepted that part of the dissonance inside me was that I was tired of being alone. More specifically, I missed having a... Read more
