GETTING GRITTY!
Friday, August 31, 2018      3 comments

I am a Costco member and the magazine came in the mail yesterday. I generally read bits and pieces of it however this issue had an article about Angela Duckworth. I found the article very interesting and plan to order her book through my librar... Read more
Momentum
Tuesday, August 28, 2018      1 comments

Today I posted a new Spark Streak, exercised 60 days in a row. Not bad for a 68 year old that has been recovering her body from a spine fracture. Not bad for anybody!!! My thought here is, there is a momentum to doing the good things for your... Read more

The 5% Challenged ended this a.m. and I missed my goal by 2.2 lbs. Wa-Wa-WAAAAA.... Am I crushed, no, not really. I feel a tinsy tiny disappointed because I really pushed myself to do everything. That brings me to the thought, was the goal r... Read more
Panic
Thursday, August 23, 2018      1 comments

I'm doing the 5% Summer Challenge and it's coming down to the wire. I really want to hit goal. It's not looking good but NEVER GIVE UP! Yesterday, I stepped on the scale and my weight was up. I went into panic mode. I felt all those stupid, ... Read more
I had it....no, it's gone
Friday, August 17, 2018      2 comments

I had this great quote to throw into today's blog, it's gone, I can't find it in my journal. The basic gist of it was that little changes add up to big changes. I went back over some of my journal entries and realized I really have come a long ... Read more
Don't you wish....pulling the thought processes in the proverbial circle
Monday, August 13, 2018      0 comments

Monday morning and I'm having a "pull the wagons in a circle" moment. I always loved the wild west t.v. shows as a kid and the "pulling the wagons in a circle" when night was falling or trouble lurked concept. This morning, with only 2 weeks le... Read more
Green things in my water!
Thursday, August 09, 2018      2 comments

The dog days of summer. Yes, just the phrase strikes fear to my very core. First, it means another summer is coming to end. I feel so sorry for my German Shepherd, dog days are miserable. A short walk this a.m and he was done. Apparently in F... Read more
Non scale Victory
Wednesday, August 08, 2018      2 comments

Feeling tiny....LOL, is something I experience every once in a while. It usually does NOT involve a mirror. I hit one of those moments and decided I should weigh and measure. The scale had not been my friend after multiple days of staycation ... Read more

Getting poked with a stick
Sunday, July 29, 2018      1 comments

Strange title for a blog, right? When I was a child, we spent a lot of time out in nature. Finding some critter lying in the woods we might poke it with a stick to get a reaction. No reaction dead, if not dead it might fly or scurry away. That'... Read more
Tweaking
Friday, July 27, 2018      1 comments

I tweaked and tweaked and tweaked my nutrition today till I am blue in the face. Dilemma is that my sister and her husband are coming in late (for me 1130 p.m., for them 2 hours earlier, coming from a western time zone) and I am picking them up... Read more
Walking the dog, ponderings
Thursday, July 26, 2018      2 comments

"Walking the Dog" was a song back in the mid 60's by Rufus Thomas. Funny! My dog is selectively smart. In the morning, I have certain routines and he really gets that. He knows when I am getting up to go to the bathroom as opposed to getting... Read more
Heart attacks and other ramblings
Sunday, July 22, 2018      0 comments

Friday, my son received a call from his step mother, to report that his dad, my ex, had a heart attack. "He will be OK" was the report, as OK as one can be after a heart attack with 99% blockage of one vessel and stents placed. Shocking and so... Read more
Challenges are NOT my thing
Sunday, July 15, 2018      1 comments

I truthfully could say 2 weeks ago I would not have considered a group challenge. I could list many reasons why not, too time consuming, responsibility to a group. After all how much would a challenge actually help with my goals? I joined 5% ... Read more

This is the orchid I purchase a couple weeks ago. It sits in front of me when I eat. It helps me focus on eating slowly and enjoying my meal. The... Read more
