Arrived home safely from trip. Molly was very happy to see us and gave us a great puppy welcome. Without missing much of a beat, DH and I unpacked the car and got settled back into our routine. After a quick stop at the store to get some ite... Read more
Ch 7, Day 12
Went to Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill yesterday for the afternoon. The weather was lovely for lots of walking. What an interesting restored village; the Shakers were such an odd, interesting group. Mostly self guided, I would have appreciat... Read more
Ch 7, Day 11
What beautiful mountains, I comment to DH, as we pass through the Smoky Mts. on our way to Kentucky. Even with some fog and rain, they are glorious in their own right.
Glad I forced myself to hop on the hotel treadmi... Read more

Ch 7, Day 5
I'm skating on thin ice over here with crossing the day's goals finish line. For the past few days, I am getting up in the wee hours of the night to snack before the day begins. I am hoping with the change-up in my routine that just naturally ... Read more
Ch 7, Day 4
"A thousand policemen directing traffic cannot tell you why you come or where you go." (T.S. Elliott)
One of the great questions of life. Today, I don't even know where I'm going -- with my exercise that is. From yesterday's podiatrist vi... Read more
Ch 7, Day 3
I'm in for a rougher day today, no question. I ended up eating some "allowable" snacks in the wee hours of the morning because I was really hungry. I've pulled myself together as much as I can. First, I planned out some lean meals so that I c... Read more
Ch 7, Day 2
It IS such a good morning! Why?
I made it through a really difficult day yesterday when I really thought I couldn't do it. These difficult days ALWAYS follow a "normal" off plan dinner out at friends/relatives and this time was no differ... Read more

I will stay with my current plan to eat in range, walk, and no evening snacking u... Read more
Chapter 6 - 100 Days of Accountability
Happy Easter, friends!
The close of another 100 Days of Accountability is upon me. Such trickery that it occurs on Easter with a food fest looming. A recent dinner at friends, in which my streak came to an end, stings my memory. I hope, ... Read more
Ch 6, Day 99
All week I've been saying I was going to get the grandkids Easter baskets together....since I am delivering two of them today...looks like that IS definitely going to happen this day. I can be such a procrastinator.
I am already wondering ... Read more
Ch 6, Day 98
Yesterday's grilled pork with apple chutney was a bust...DH and DS3 didn't care for it. I thought the chutney was decent on its own but really did nothing for the pork....maybe I'm just a "sauce" kind of girl. I'm going to add some cornstarch ... Read more
