I am SO confused...finding a balance between exercise and nutrition
Thursday, June 03, 2010      5 comments

(Ahem.... beginning of rant:) I am so confused. I got on the scale this morning and was down 2.5 pounds. That's good. Very good. Last weekend I ate with little regard for calories. One day I even ate twice my goal for the day. And I lost we... Read more

Wow! It's June already! I've barely gotten over the fact that I'm writing "2010" seems like a sci-fi date to me. lol.. Saw my little grandbaby during the Memorial Day weekend. It was a nice trip, although A LOT of driving. Luckily (mira... Read more
Favorite Seasons

We've been having beautiful weather lately. I love living in an area where we have the definite changes of season. I was thinking about my favorite season and realized that Spring is my favorite by a landslide. The renewal after the bleak winter... Read more
One of those days...

Yesterday was one of those days that I'm terrified of: I woke up, dragged myself into my workout clothes, went to get my purse - just to realize that I was exhausted. Part of me was saying "you'll feel better once you get to the gym" and another... Read more

To all you mothers, grandmothers, "bonus" mothers, foster mothers... Happy Mother's Day! It's not an easy job being a parent. Some are doing it with a partner, some are not. For some, it's their first (Happy First Mother's Day, Leigh Anna!), and... Read more

Well, I just became a Gramma to an adorable baby girl. I'm so proud of my son and his wife - they're working as a team and are well organized. After that first day home (a bit of a learning curve for them) they got into the swing of things. Me, ... Read more

I got the news today that (barring her going into labor earlier) my oldest son's baby is going to be delivered next Tuesday. My first grandchild - so exciting. We're getting ready to go down to be with them for the delivery. At the same tim... Read more
Mindfulness and Health
Sunday, April 25, 2010      0 comments

I've been a part of a mindfulness meditation group, which has become part of my morning routine. I go to the gym at 7:15 (or so), workout for 30 minutes, then go to the group. Since starting this combination, I've noticed that my meditations hav... Read more
Well, it's a plan....

I've been at the gym 6 days a week for 2 weeks now. So far I'm actually liking it. I find that the food issues are MUCH harder to work with than the exercise. What a challenge! If I ate because I was hungry...well, I probably wouldn't be in this... Read more

I don't own Babar, but I love him like I do. What a great horse! He made good what was an otherwise difficult day. Had a nice ride with him this morning. Ate badly, but onc... Read more
Change is slow, but... Wiiiiiiiii!
Sunday, January 03, 2010      0 comments

One of the things that I would like to do is work-out more often. The problem is that I get bored VERY quickly and I don't like activity that doesn't seem to have a purpose (at least in my mind). Aerobic classes, walking with no where to go, thi... Read more

I've been so sleepy today. It's midafternoon and I just now feel like I'm waking up. I've been listening to music this morning and been on the computer. I'm procrastinating... I'm supposed to be doing at least 3 other things: exercise, cleaning,... Read more
Sunday - Bead Show Day!
Sunday, November 09, 2008      0 comments

I went to the bead show in Edison today with my aunt and her friend. We always go together, and we always spend too much money. It's amazing how quickly you can spend $100 on semi-precious stones and findings! But I love the beautiful stones - I... Read more
Time for a break

Well, today I had my stress test and the doctor said that he didn't see any problems. I go back on Tuesday when he's had a chance to look at the pictures, but I don't think it's my heart. I think it's stress. So I just need to take it easy and k... Read more
