This morning is beautiful. I'm looking forward to my walk this afternoon with my buddy, followed by dinner then dog training. Darby is an adolescent pit bull, in need of learning what's hers and what isn't. Hubby and I take her to PetSmart's ... Read more
It's 5 p.m. and I'm waiting for supper
When my husband retired several years ago, and I continued working longer, he took over cooking (and cleaning up the kitchen) on the week nights. I had weekend duty. Since I retired, hubby declared he wanted to continue doing that. Who am I t... Read more
It's a holiday; and I have done some good things and some 'bad' things. This morning I walked 3/10 of a mi to my hair dressers, and back home again. My pace was as brisk as the weather. : )
At lunchtime my husband said, 'let's go out for... Read more
I'm off Vicodin and just using Ibrprophen today. Hurray!
It's a beautiful early fall day, sun shining, breezy, temps not too high. I love fall. I love the leaves changing color, and then falling off, leaving interesting-shaped branches... Read more
I'm on as normal a diet as I want to be, according to the oral surgeon. But that doesn't include chips and such. That's ok with me. I'm watching my intake today, but otherwise pretty much just chillin' because I'm on Vicodin for the mouth pai... Read more
9 Oct, evening
As expected, the anticipation of oral surgery was worse than the actual event.
My eating today is limited by order of the doctor, and of course, no exercise today; but I'm doinig 'ok'. I do have 'discomfort' - thanks to Vicodin to keeping... Read more
Thanks to all who prayed for me
I'm calm about tomorrow's procedure. And I dare say that the anticipation has been much worse than the actual fact will be. I have a VERY active imagination. : )
I've been busy today: cleaned the kitten room at a no-kill shelter (take... Read more
dreading Fri morning - edited version
When I had my teeth cleaned earlier this year, my dentist informed me that my body was reabsorbing one tooth. He sent me to an oral surgeon who removed that tooth (a molar) and implanted some cadaver bone to build up my jaw. Now it's time to h... Read more
reached a goal
I reached a goal of actually DOING some strength exercises. I know, what have I been doing up to now? (not going to answer that directly). I'm a basically lazy person when it comes to exercising, except my walking buddy keeps me walking - we... Read more
Ok, so yesterday was an up-and-down day, but I did pretty well staying w/in my nutrition goals.
Today, I walked the mile (uphill) to my friend's house and we walked for 40 minutes up and down hills; then I walked the mile home. I know I... Read more
Today's a new day
Yeah, I was lazy yesterday, but my walking friend and I walked 2 miles yesterday afternoon - so I wasn't a total slug for the whole day. : D
I need to make a b'day cake for my husband - the big test will be that I won't gobble up half the ... Read more
So it's Friday
So it's Friday and I feel LAZY today. Good thing my walking partner (SHIRL70) and I have a walk scheduled for this afternoon. She keeps me accountable.
Maybe I'll wake up more in my shower. (yawn) Or maybe I'll just decide to give my... Read more
My, how time flies! And I swear it picks up speed the older I get!
I DID finish my housework yesterday, after procrastinating all week. I felt so much better mentally for DOING it.
I walked for 30 minutes (with the dog) after getting... Read more
Keeping the spark!
Mentally, I'm charged. Physically, I'm doing well. Now all I have to do is finish my housework - there's so little left to do, but I'm dragging my feet - I'd rather read. Guess I'll 'reward' myself with reading after I finish the cleaning. T... Read more

Haven't been using sparkpeople entirely as I should the past couple of days; but I have to update today - I lost three lbs over the weekend, in spite of being out of town!!! Ok, now I have a broken arm from patting myself on the back. LOL
