I belong to a herb club, and love to grow and use herbs of all kinds. [By the way, the official correct pronunciation is with the "h" clearly said. We're finally joining the rest of the world.] Tell me how you use herbs in your cooking, especial... Read more
proved to cause a pound weight gain yesterday. Since I exercised and didn't go over my calorie limit, I'm assuming the gain is caused by salt intake. I'm trying for this not to discourage me, but the consequences of weighing every day is that th... Read more
If you're familiar with Zig Ziglar, you know what that means. Basically.... to get ready to commence to begin to think about starting perhaps someday to do SOMETHING, and like a biscuit getting ready to rise, you get stuck in that beginning posi... Read more
I'll be starting next week. My local Curves initiated it this week, but I've been inactive lately, and didn't want to jump in "full hog," which is how I've been injuring myself this past year. The cycle of vacation and little activity, then back... Read more
My husband and I are both engaging in our hobbies today. He's fixing my serger. I went to his workroom right now, and my serger has been transformed into some robotic monster. So glad when he gets my serger's "clothes" back on.
I'm cutting... Read more
Maybe it was 'cuz we were in the mountains, but I got way off track in Tennessee at the quilting retreat. Ate every dessert I was hungry for... sometimes second helpings. Desserts are my biggest enemy; my diet otherwise is a very good one. I've ... Read more
Just home from Atlanta, to see our new grandson (will add pictures when I can); leaving on a quilt retreat tomorrow. Haven't entered food for 3 days, which is very unusual for me. I did take my laptop, but only had limited time to log on. Wanted... Read more
I wouldn't normally blog the morning after a "slip," but.... so it is. Last night I had a meeting at my house, at which I served cranberry/orange scones. My husband had brought them home (they were on sale, of course!), and I'd mildly chastised ... Read more
It's 12:30 p.m., and though I've done little chores here and there, I've been on the computer mostly, and wish I could break this bad habit. There's tons of places to go in SparkPeople, of course, which I've explored a lot so far. However, there... Read more
I vowed to my "coach" that I would make a batch of ginger cookies without eating one. I just wanted to see if I could do it. This particular recipe is so delicious I actually like the dough better than the cookies! Of course, I couldn't eat the ... Read more

Today, I vow to live in the moment and enjoy being alive, feeling my body and its strength, and to t... Read more
Well (taking a big breath).... I've done it!
Reading Judy Beck's "Diet Solution," which recommends getting a coach. I've chosen my son, who doesn't live here, but is supportive, kind, and motivated for physical fitness. He spent Thanksgivin... Read more
My torn meniscus is still giving me a little trouble. Interestingly enough, though, my session at Curves yesterday made it feel better. Still being really careful on a couple of the machines (yellow dots all over the place in my end "report") bu... Read more

Imagine being backstage: concrete floors, eery monitors showing the events in front of the curtains, electrical cords snaking themselves underneath tables and chairs, and 85 women congregating themselves with gifts to give to the new Sweet Adeli... Read more
