Goal Progress 5/22/18
Tuesday, May 22, 2018      6 comments

My steps are up and fairly consistent. There's always the part of me that wants to improve on this. Exercising a bit more - summertime with an almost-4-year-old helps. If I look silly at the playground climbing on everything, then oh well. ... Read more
Plodding Along: Working on Goals
Tuesday, May 08, 2018      7 comments

Since getting my new Fitbit Flex 2, I have been easily getting over 10,000 steps every day. It's been so long since I have done this. It feels good to be a little more active again; I'm not quite as sore as I've been before the steps. I... Read more
Did It Anyway
Friday, April 27, 2018      8 comments

After the dog ate my relatively new Fitbit, I wondered whether or not I should get another one. Am I too obsessed with steps? No. I need something to keep track of them. So...a new Flex 2 with a wrist and a foot band is now synced in my com... Read more
Unlucky with Fitbits
Thursday, April 19, 2018      5 comments

I had my first Spark Tracker forever - until I took it in the pool with me. The second fell out of the holder on a walk. I found it in the street the next day only to lose it somewhere outside. My first Fitbit was lost in the backyard (... Read more
Light Bulb Connected Again
Sunday, April 15, 2018      6 comments

I read a Weight Watchers article yesterday about setting goals for success. I immediately remembered that I had read a similar article on Spark People years back. Must be something to it.... I was reminded to set specific goals. A person... Read more

For the first time, one of my girls had an Easter birthday. My Sherry turned 36 yesterday. Both Sherry and Sarah, as well as my Helena, are my miracles from God. I am reminded of this every day, but it seems to sink in more on Sundays at chur... Read more
Steps to Self Care
Wednesday, March 28, 2018      4 comments

If I post these, maybe I will follow them better. If it feels wrong, don't do it. Say exactly what you mean. No more beating around the bush or biting my tongue. Don't be a people pleaser. Growing up Catholic, I believe the nuns scar... Read more
Wonderful Weekend
Monday, March 26, 2018      4 comments

I had a wonderful spring weekend with Helena. She was over Friday while Sherry went to a hair appointment. She loves to watch old Looney Tunes cartoons with me. I enjoy them, too. I forgot how wonderful Mel Blanc was with all those voices. ... Read more
New Fitbit
Friday, March 23, 2018      6 comments

I suspected my old Fitbit was not registering correctly. It seemed to take forever to register steps. So...my favorite guy had just bought himself a toy. I figured I could spring for a new Fitbit. Granted, it's on the lower end: A Flex 2. ... Read more
Good Feelings This Week So Far
Monday, March 19, 2018      5 comments

I went to the Disney Magic Show with Sherry and Helena yesterday. Any thing to do with Disney is always magic to me and I really enjoyed it. I got an early walk in this morning - the first time in a long time. The apartment complex that I... Read more
Why am I getting older? I Have Some Answers...
Friday, March 16, 2018      6 comments

Why are things like this as I am getting older? Some answers I have....most I am still looking for. I wonder why it takes so long to remember something. Then I remember that as I age, there's more to remember. I have to find the file cab... Read more

Mid February 2018 Report
Saturday, February 17, 2018      2 comments

It's been three weeks since I vowed to get back on the wagon. My exercising and walking isn't where it should be. The two surgeries and the broken back last year definitely got me out of the habit. All the rain we've had in Alabama has not he... Read more
Lousy Step Totals This Past Week
Monday, February 12, 2018      4 comments

Last Sunday was spent in a hotel in Orlando watching it rain. Monday was our travel day home, meaning 11 hours in the car. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and today were spent with an under the weather Helena. I had the lowest step totals this week ... Read more
Not Too Bad
Thursday, February 08, 2018      4 comments

The Sunday before last, I found my determination. I looked long and hard for it. When I was just about to give up, it was right in front of my face. But...how long will it last this time? A week ago today, we drove to Orlando. It seemed... Read more
