I get the daily "Dear Abby" in my email, and so just had to share this (to save for me!):
DEAR ABBY: I thought I'd share my own New Year's resolution with you.
For the past 25 years I have made the following resolution: Each day I

so here's another story, this one about a healthy Australian mom. I think she's a new heroine for me, much more reachable than Maria Kang.

I read an interesting article on Saturnalia - some of the other holidays I wasn't familiar with.
And after visiting with my mom, I took Java for a walk - or maybe more accurate to s... Read more
Some have asked... and while explaining, I also found an interesting blog from a man who I've never personally met, and his experience mirrors mine so closely it's not funny. It's both a video and the transcript (more or less) following it. He w... Read more
My mom showed me a video on Facebook that was doubly tragic - heavier women at a dress store, talking amongst themselves. I have NO clue what they are actually saying, because of course, Special K (United States) made no effort to have the video... Read more
Had a small Thanksgiving with my immediate family and my mom. Just the four of us and not too many courses. I have not calculated the damages on calories but I do know it was less than it was when we have gone to luxurious multi-course Thanksgiv... Read more
Last night, my dad had surgery on his prostate, trying to work it out so there was a better connection between his kidneys and the bladder/prostate. I guess it's not going so well and he may lose the right kidney. He is in a hospital in Racine, ... Read more

My husband sent me a link to a news story about the hurricane passing through the south of England and north part of France. He has a special empathy as he was actually in the south of England on holiday when the "Great Storm" of 1987 (reference... Read more
Got my rebounding done this morning. Day one of my rebounding streak, again. I messed around last night after I got home and didn't do my rebounding at all. Then it turned midnight and there I was - busted! I decided to get some sleep and then s... Read more
So I did rebound (jump on the mini-trampoline thing) last night, around 9:30 or 10 pm but then it was nearly midnight when I realized I hadn't tracked it online. URk! I ended up having to add it retroactively because then the clock went to 12 ... Read more
I started a streak of rebounding every day - figured that was something I could do indoors every day, regardless of excuses. I set it to 10 minutes a day but rebounded 20 minutes on Sunday and 20 minutes on Monday. So that was a two day streak. ... Read more
