I'm approaching 200 days on the Simple Diet and I can't be more pleased with the results. I have a doctor's appointment at the end of August and I know my doctor will be happy. The highlight of my day was when I realized that I had cross... Read more

Oooooo the back of my thighs are talking to me today! It could be the extra riser in the steps aerobics or the 3 miles I walked last night. I almost didn't make it through water aerobics today. After changing, I was planning to go to regular ... Read more

No loss no gain!! I’m pretty pleased since I wasn’t able to follow the Simple Diet while on vacation last week. Once again, it was hard to get back into the rhythm of exercising. However, today I added an extra riser to my step and I inc... Read more

After two water aerobics classes today, I met my co-workers for lunch. Each year we take the new teacher out to lunch to introduce ourselves. That way she'll have some familiar faces when our workdays start. We ate at Panera Bread. I had the... Read more

I'm still a little jet-lagged. I went to early service and came home for a nap. I've had two protein shakes for breakfast; for lunch/brunch I had Morton's grilled salmon and a salad. I stopped at a local restaurant to make my salad and wh... Read more

stays in Vegas. So all I can say is that we had a great time. We toured Vegas, walked the Grand Canyons (including the Skywalk), saw George Wallace (the comedian) and played the slots. I'm still as poor as a church mouse. As far as the ... Read more

Busy day. I played at the 11am service and the choir went to Red Lobster for brunch/lunch. I looked up the menu last night and chose the lunch portion of broiled tilapia with a side salad and steamed broccoli. The choir didn’t “freak out” when... Read more
A Hug a Day
Saturday, July 28, 2012      5 comments

I ran into one of my coworkers in the Mall. She hugged me and then said – “I think I hugged all of you!” Kind of cute. Between that comment and the Jenny Craig commercial (what happened to my double chin) I got to thinking about my non-scale v... Read more
