High-pro...temporary way to go?
Thursday, August 11, 2011      5 comments

Seems no matter how healthfully I eat and how faithfully I exercise, I cannot break through this plateau. Started strength training a couple of months ago (three times a week), and was expecting that to help, but so far, it hasn't seemed to. ... Read more

Conference and cafeteria food...hmmm
Saturday, July 16, 2011      4 comments

Well, in a couple of hours, my daughter, granddaughter and I will head to the week-long deaf conference. That means a lot of sitting in workshops, meetings, worship services, and around a table, eating cafeteria food. As I previously said, at le... Read more

I'm heading to a national deaf conference with my daughter in a couple of days (Southern Baptist Conference of the Deaf). Been thinking about the food that will be abundant at every meal, and a lot of choices there that I keep out of the house. ... Read more
Health-focused book with weird title!

As I was perusing the aisles of my favorite thrift store looking for some "new" clothes to take on my upcoming vacation, I strolled by the book section. There are three areas I always check: Self-help (which has some ver-r-ry interesting topics,... Read more
Eating at MacGreasy King with friends
Sunday, July 03, 2011      11 comments

A fellow Sparker mentioned it was hard going to eat out with friends; she either felt intimidated by their comments when she made healthy choices, or she ended up over-indulging. As I mulled over her thoughts, I began to write down these respons... Read more

Before you think I've lost my marbles, let me share a title of a fellow-Sparker's blog that I just HAD to read a while back: "Overweight and proud of it!" Well, my curiosity took over and I clicked on the page. The woman had moved out of the "o... Read more

On Wednesday, my daughter-in-law called, and said, "Mom, I don't want to upset you, but..." (don't you hate getting calls that begin like that?). My son had woken up after sleeping about 6 hours (he's a meteorologist, and had worked a week of mi... Read more
