Free Day
Monday, June 28, 2010      1 comments

Tomorrow is a designated free day. That means I get to try and catch up on all the things I need to do that have been on my list for weeks. Ah, we can dream about what might get done, but the reality is I need to pick just two or three things a... Read more

Sunny Weekend Ahead
Saturday, June 26, 2010      1 comments

Looks like summer has arrived. Now comes the job I have been putting out the fishpond. It has to get drained by buckets, carefully capturing the fish, and then refilled. It was not such a chore before my knee replacement, but n... Read more
Posted my encouragement tip
Wednesday, June 23, 2010      0 comments

Because I got several comments about people liking my ribbon idea of a visual reminder of how far I have come, I posted it in motivation tips. Looking at that ribbon really does give me a boost to keep on going, however slow it feels!... Read more
New source of encouragement
Tuesday, June 22, 2010      5 comments

Because the weight is not coming off nearly as fast as I had hoped, or would like, I needed to find another way of looking at what has happened. Focus there, and not where I would like to be. So...I took all my measurements after almost 6 mont... Read more
Full Weekend
Monday, June 21, 2010      2 comments

Sometimes the weekends seem so full, that the beginning of a new week on Monday feels like a break! NOT a good sign. As I age I keep being amazed at how fast days and weeks seem to fly by. Good news, bad news....who knows? Just a reality of l... Read more
Is it summer yet?
Saturday, June 19, 2010      2 comments

Today, finally it was warm enough to wonder if in fact summer might come this year. YES! We had some really nice weather at the beginning of May, then it cooled down so much most of us were wondering if summer was over. Hard for those of us wh... Read more
Great New Breakfast

Today I found something new for breakfast that really worked well for me using Greek Yogurt ( I make this style myself at the beginning of the week by draining plain skim milk yogurt without gelatin in a coffee filter for a couple of hours. It r... Read more
Goodbye to a great cat
Monday, June 14, 2010      6 comments

Well, we had to have the vet come and put our cat to sleep last night. We knew it was coming to this, and he was 15 years old. This feisty old orange and white family member had at least 34 lives. He was adopted from a shelter when he was abo... Read more
Pizza for supper
Saturday, June 12, 2010      1 comments

Well, we had pizza for supper tonight...still one of my all time favorites. When I went shopping the brand we like best was on sale for 1/2 off. So I began by reading labels and comparing numbers. Then I opted for the best choices I could fin... Read more
Back on Track
Wednesday, June 09, 2010      3 comments

Well, even though the weight loss to this point is discouraging because I had hoped to lose much more than the 14 lbs I am currently at, I still need to focus on what has been accomplished. Let's put it this way, this is 4 and 2/3 containers o... Read more
There is something wrong with this reality.
Tuesday, June 08, 2010      0 comments

I do not know how it manages to be true, but the evidence clearly shows it is. It takes much longer, and much more work to take weight off than it does to put it on. I was away on a sort of mini vacation, and even carefully choosing what treat... Read more
Needed a goal reward
Sunday, May 30, 2010      1 comments

Well, it was time for a reward goal, and I needed a creative way to do this that did not involve food, nor would it cost money. Such is life! Now there are always books from the library to read, but that did not seem good enough at this time. ... Read more

Ah, back to the pool!
Friday, May 28, 2010      2 comments

Finally got back to the pool. What a joy. I think I really am part duck. I knew I could only get there once this week, but decided to make that effort. I will be away for a week again, so no pool next week, but will make a determined effort ... Read more
