Wow, after a week of rain and clouds the sun is finally doing its thing. Happy to see it! We did our 7 mile walk yesterday and it was a bit of a struggle. Then we got our sub from Subway as planned, and did a few errands including the gro... Read more

This is a lot like Vandal's blog about mindless eating, but this is what I observed today. We had a reception and ribbon cutting for a new building opening on campus. There was lovely food and a ton of it -- lots of finger foods, petit fou... Read more

Hey everyone, I admit it -- I've not been doing my best the last few weeks. I've had a few more "cheat meals", I've indulged in a bottle of wine or two that husband brought home, I've given myself Fridays off from workouts...not been readi... Read more

Hi Everyone, I lost 1 pound, and I'm grateful for that. I am STILL mucking around in the 160's and I'm not pleased with that because it's been OH! SINCE JULY!! For some reason I am mentally resisting going to that next level. AKA sa... Read more

Wow, where did the day go? It has rained all day. This morning TC brought in about 15 pounds of green peppers and even MORE of acorn squash, so I had to get that all ready for the freezer. I must duly report that he worked side by side wi... Read more

Well, I'm ready to sign up for a half marathon! TC and I walked 6 miles this morning and I feel just fine. The half marathon that seems doable is on November 7 in Wynne, Arkansas. NOT a very exciting part of the state (the delta) but it... Read more
Little Things Make A BIG Difference

I gained 40 pounds, but it took me 5 years to do it. Whether it's my age, lack of exercise, etc., doesn't matter. What matters are the numbers. 40 pounds in 5 years means 8 pounds per year. 8 pounds, at 3500 calories a pound, means a... Read more

I took a breather Friday-Saturday-Sunday, which I'm sure all of sparkland noticed... But I feel really good this morning and am ready to get back to it! TC and I are already back from a 3-mile walk and I've had a wonderful breakfast. I'v... Read more
Labor on Labor Day Weekend
Saturday, September 05, 2009      3 comments

No fitness center today; they are closed the entire weekend. I think they grab any excuse to close that place! Anyway, TC and I have a big day -- we rented a carpet cleaner and while we don't have carpets, we have a zillion rugs. So -- moving... Read more

Going to eat more, worry less
Thursday, September 03, 2009      3 comments

Thanks to every one who weighed in (ha ha) yesterday with my little dilemma. I'm still not sure how many calories I should be eating; I can't find the page that Amacuba mentioned that's supposed to tell me how many calories to eat. So if ... Read more
Input needed: What IS the plan??
Wednesday, September 02, 2009      5 comments

Hi Everyone, Busy, busy busy. I keep thinking about the 2 months I spent leisurely strolling my way through the 160's, and I just don't feel I can do that again. I mean of course I CAN, I just don't want to! So I'm going to try... Read more
