Getting poked with a stick
Sunday, July 29, 2018      1 comments

Strange title for a blog, right? When I was a child, we spent a lot of time out in nature. Finding some critter lying in the woods we might poke it with a stick to get a reaction. No reaction dead, if not dead it might fly or scurry away. That'... Read more

I tweaked and tweaked and tweaked my nutrition today till I am blue in the face. Dilemma is that my sister and her husband are coming in late (for me 1130 p.m., for them 2 hours earlier, coming from a western time zone) and I am picking them up... Read more
Walking the dog, ponderings
Thursday, July 26, 2018      2 comments

"Walking the Dog" was a song back in the mid 60's by Rufus Thomas. Funny! My dog is selectively smart. In the morning, I have certain routines and he really gets that. He knows when I am getting up to go to the bathroom as opposed to getting... Read more

Friday, my son received a call from his step mother, to report that his dad, my ex, had a heart attack. "He will be OK" was the report, as OK as one can be after a heart attack with 99% blockage of one vessel and stents placed. Shocking and so... Read more
Challenges are NOT my thing

I truthfully could say 2 weeks ago I would not have considered a group challenge. I could list many reasons why not, too time consuming, responsibility to a group. After all how much would a challenge actually help with my goals? I joined 5% ... Read more

Goals, Rewards and Motivations Revisited
Saturday, June 16, 2018      0 comments

In my last blog I talked about my reward for losing weight, a trip to Thailand. My ultimate goal is a mantra I picked up from a friend, 25x 50, meaning 25 lb weight loss by his 50th birthday. Mine is 70 x 70. I have 70 lbs to lose by my 70th bi... Read more

Over the years of losing and gaining weight I have learned quite a lot. First, it is not healthy to gain back weight you lose. It is not good for your body or your mind. I have beat myself up over the failures often. I have, however, over the ... Read more

Yesterday the sun was shining, a warm, lovely day. I did a couple hours of yard work, built a planter box, cleaned some flower beds and got weed and feed down. Such hope deep in my soul when weather is beautiful. I AM READY FOR SPRING! ... Read more

Happy St. Patrick's day to you all! I am Scot Irish, which I hear most Irish are, that a 100% Irish is hard to find. Especially here in the USA. Ah well, we are each a wee bit Irish today. (said in my best Irish brogue) Did you ever get t... Read more
