One would think, "Heaviness" would be about my weight issue. It's not. It's 2:30 p.m where I sit right now, having my first cup of coffee. I'm suppose to be in day 2 of 3 of a punk rock festival with my son, he is my music/rocker baby. I us... Read more

I have been thinking about that darn binge thing. I hope I am past that point in my life. Binges occur because we deny ourselves something and then we get to that volcano moment when we just BLOW and eat with total abandon. Post binge we feel... Read more

I try not to judge people. It's hard sometimes. Maybe it's in our fallen nature. I saw a woman at the gym recently who looked old and haggard, she probably wasn't old, just looked it. She was wearing a black athletic skirt, black skinny top a... Read more

Today I posted a new Spark Streak, exercised 60 days in a row. Not bad for a 68 year old that has been recovering her body from a spine fracture. Not bad for anybody!!! My thought here is, there is a momentum to doing the good things for your... Read more

I had this great quote to throw into today's blog, it's gone, I can't find it in my journal. The basic gist of it was that little changes add up to big changes. I went back over some of my journal entries and realized I really have come a long ... Read more

The dog days of summer. Yes, just the phrase strikes fear to my very core. First, it means another summer is coming to end. I feel so sorry for my German Shepherd, dog days are miserable. A short walk this a.m and he was done. Apparently in F... Read more
