My favorite months
Sunday, March 02, 2014      3 comments

I cannot believe it has been almost a year since I have posted a blog. For quite awhile, I was doing it every single day. I am still not sure why I stopped, because I think I was far more successful and honest with myself when I was blogging. ... Read more
Back in the Saddle
Saturday, April 27, 2013      10 comments

Well, that's not quite true. I wouldn't be caught dead in a saddle. With my fat butt, I would feel too sorry for the horse! Besides, can you imagine what I would look like from behind? Yikes! Just as bad as looking at an overweight person o... Read more
Springing Ahead
Monday, March 11, 2013      11 comments

The last time I blogged was December 31, 2013. It was about the New Year and my plans for being healthier, etc. Yeah, right. I don't think I lasted more than a day or two. Truth be told, I am one lazy fat lady. I want to lose weight, ye... Read more
Nuts, fruits, veggies and fiber--oh my!
Monday, December 31, 2012      7 comments

Another year--gained back what I lost the year before and then some. Yesterday is history and tomorrow is a mystery. I wasn't kidding--next year holds more nuts, fruits and veggies. And yes, I am still eating meat. Cutting out a lot of fa... Read more
62....wow
Thursday, December 27, 2012      13 comments

Today I turn 62. What an awesome feeling! No, I am not kidding--I really do feel that way. I have had some major health issues through the years so to reach the venerable old age of 62 is a Big Thing. Thank you for the goodies and spark b... Read more

Icy Roads and Slippery Slopes
Sunday, December 02, 2012      8 comments

Yesterday we had our first snowfall. How appropriate for December 1st. I take that as a good omen. I live in the Green Moutains of southern Vermont. The ski industry is a big part of our local winter economy. Me? No, I don't ski anymore. ... Read more
First Snow
Saturday, December 01, 2012      5 comments

There is just something about the first snow of the season. I awoke to a white blanket over the ground today. Washed clean, a blank slate. Hard to know what was there before. Hard to know with any of us, indeed. Went to an artisan sho... Read more
Fat, stressed and back!
Friday, November 30, 2012      11 comments

I will make this sort of short. I've been missing for two months due to some health issues. Doing ok now, except that I am now heavier than I've ever been. I prefer to blame the gain on stress, but the fact is I like to eat unhealthy food. I a... Read more
Today can be a good day if......
Monday, October 01, 2012      9 comments

Today can be a good day. Every day has the potential to be a good day if we want it enough. I have a SparkFriend, Septemberspirit, who wrote a great blog the other day and part of what was in it was a piece about good vs. perfect. I wou... Read more
Blogging
Friday, September 28, 2012      9 comments

Hmmmm........a blog about blogging. Well, certainly, that cannot be original! I haven't blogged in the past couple of days--no reason, other than time being at a premium. Got me wondering, though, about the purpose of blogging. Honestly,... Read more
Battlestar Gallactica (or my continuing battle with the Milky Ways)
Tuesday, September 25, 2012      12 comments

Isn't this silly? Certainly there are more important issues in life than how I am doing with avoiding Milky Ways! However, I got to thinking the other day that the reason I craved Milky Ways (which, by the way, until I started eating healthie... Read more
Smarty Pants Day
Sunday, September 23, 2012      9 comments

Today is a smarty pants day. Got up earlier than I wanted, thanks to the cocker spaniel jumping on the bed and decided to make the most of it. Got the grocery list done. Went grocery shopping. Did a load of laundry. Had lunch. Planned me... Read more
November
Saturday, September 22, 2012      11 comments

I know, considering I live in the beautiful state of Vermont, that it might seem odd that my favorite month is November. The autumn is lovely here, but I much prefer the greyness of November. The leaves are gone from the trees. The tourists... Read more
