I'm in the middle of a 50 workouts in 50 days challenge. I did miss one day and did very little on a couple when sick, but being on about day 28 has brought me to a good place. Just remembering I will need to log it encourages me do something... Read more

I was asked to bring corn muffins to a dinner party this week. I made the mistake of bringing home the leftovers. I must be very careful to limit that treat, but I am enjoying each bite. For extra fiber I have an ounce of dry coconut almost e... Read more

Though I'm not much of a jogger due to knee, back and balance issues, I think this time of year many of us are on that never ending treadmill. I find myself putting too many things on hold while not accomplishing nearly enough on my to do list... Read more

I dread hopping on the scale tomorrow. Today we took our grandsons to a darling movie...'Wreck-it Ralph'. Unfortunately, I ate a bit more popcorn than I should have and even worse, I had a cup of hot cocoa after. It was a magical day, but I k... Read more

An older gentleman who dh and I know often sports a ball cap that reads 'grumpy' across the front. It suits him perfectly. He is opposed to all silliness. As we discussed the Christmas dinner party for our little band of co-ministers, he insi... Read more

This time of year is always hard. So many people want me to try this or that goodie. I'm pretty good at just taking a taste these days, but it is still a challenge. However, I do remind myself that last year I actually lost a couple of pounds... Read more
