When I was growing up I often saw my mom consult the Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book. Naturally when I started cooking for myself in the '60's I bought myself one of those books with the red gingham cover. In 1996 I saw that BHG had added nut... Read more

I read something this morning on facebook that stuck with me. It said something to the effect that no race ever started at the start line. Isn't that the truth? The race is just the culmination of the training. My race on Saturday the 7th ... Read more

Yes, I know tracking works. I did it almost religiously from December 1, 2008 until November 30, 2013. That is 5 full years. And I measured or weighed almost all my food, too. I re-learned portion sizes. And during that time I changed the food I... Read more
Cutting A Rug, Cutting Up and Cutting Back

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

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
