Cutting A Rug, Cutting Up and Cutting Back
Thursday, May 29, 2014      12 comments

My weight is up a little. I'm going to try to cut back for the next two weeks and see if once again I can get it down without tracking or following any specific food plan. If it isn't back in range in two weeks, I commit to start tracking again ... Read more
Mostly Alligator Comments

Several people commented on yesterday's blog about the alligators. Let me assure you I never felt threatened or in any danger. They were at a distance. The signs told us if one was on the trail, to turn around and I'm sure we would have. We did ... Read more

Nephew has found a better job! So glad he will no longer be delivering pizza. So glad he will finally have a set schedule and definite income. It is night work, but at least he will no longer work until 3am and then have to be there at 9am. Slee... Read more

No sense in worrying about hubby's surgery as there is nothing we can do about it until it's time to go, which will be at least 17 days from now. He seems to be doing fine emotionally and it isn't going to help him for me to fall apart! So, it's... Read more

Can't Help Feeling Great!!
Friday, May 16, 2014      19 comments

Some of you know that this is the year I've declared I will overcome my obsession with the scale. I proposed to weigh maybe twice a month, and vowed that a bad weigh-in would never again ruin a day of mine! I can say that I have not had one... Read more

No Additional Eating While I'm Eating (What????)
Sunday, May 04, 2014      21 comments

Most of the time now days I eat pretty slowly. I don't care if I'm the last person to leave the table. Often when I have extended family over and everyone but me is finished, I serve dessert and while they are eating, I finish my meal. But occas... Read more
Challenge Following the Rainless Run
Saturday, May 03, 2014      12 comments

The rain held off until my running group had made it the 8.44 mile route. Believe it or not, I did not feel one drop until less than a quarter mile back and as I slipped my key in to unlock my car door, I heard the first thunder of the day. What... Read more
Rain, Rain, Go Away, At Least Until My Run is Done!

So far it has never been raining when I started out on a Galloway Group run on a Saturday morning, usually at 6am. The two times it has rained on my runs, it was just a bit and felt great. But tomorrow we have a 60% chance of thunderstorms at th... Read more

Sunday my son-in-law arrived with the grandkids for me to watch and a box of Rice Krispies and a bag of mini-marshmallows. Normally, Rice Krispie Treats are not in my cooking repertoire, but since I had a request, complete with most of the ingre... Read more
