Friday and Sunday afternoon, my husband and I helped fill and move sandbags for some friends whose house and business are in the path of the flooded Arkansas River. We *think* they'll be able to stay dry, but what a mess. Friday when we we... Read more
Week 5 - Friday: Weigh-In
Friday, May 31, 2019      2 comments

I said I wasn't going to do weigh-in after a bad week, but I did anyway, and I'm glad that I did (at least for now). It wasn't nearly as bad as I imagined. I also need to realize that it takes time to gain the amount of weight that I have and it... Read more

Well, if I considered getting "sidetracked" in Week 4, I have totally derailed so far in Week 5. I blogged last about some struggles in Week 4 last time, and Friday's weigh-in showed a small gain. I tried to rationalize it as likely water weigh... Read more

Tuesday, May 14, 2019      1 comments

I like eating at home because I feel like I have more control. I get to decide what to cook, and I know what ingredients are in the meal. I get to decide how much I serve on my plate. And there is no social pressure. And we do usually eat a... Read more

Wednesday, May 08, 2019      1 comments

One of the ways I am renewing my mind is by listening to podcasts....and this is completely new to me. I know - I'm late to the game. My husband has a bunch of podcasts he likes, and it always felt like talk radio to me...which bores me (though ... Read more
