I resolve to eat healthy, one bite at a time, one meal at a time, one day at a time. I am putting it in writing to be accountable to all of you because I am having some difficulty being accountable to myself. The exercise is not a ... Read more

For me, as most likely for some of you, once I eat it, my body craves more of it. As the time between sweets increases, my desire to eat them lessens. Those first couple of days are the most difficult for me. Then as my resolve and confide... Read more

A brand new Super WalMart opened up in the adjacent county. It's only 15 minutes away and that beats the 35 into C'ville. It's grand opening was 11/11/09, so I figured some of the hype may have subsided. Boy was I wrong! There was hardly ... Read more

I ran in the rain today. This is something I said I wouldn't do, but it looked as if the rain was not coming down when I got ready to go out. But first, I needed to have some oatmeal. Then I needed to wait until the laundry could be moved ... Read more
