Sunday, March 20, 2011      3 comments

Health update: My dad’s lump has diminished in size so it seems it was an infection and not cancer! Good news! My brother’s eye surgery went well. He is currently having a minor complication but doctor says it’s no big deal. Good news!! I ... Read more
Hair and water........Oh, my!

Well, this has been quite a week! I have been struggling with very dry, frizzy hair for almost a year. I have bought so much c#*p I could open my own salon. Some of it very expensive. Of course, I could have just rubbed olive oil on my hair ... Read more
Lazy Week
Sunday, March 06, 2011      4 comments

Well, it seems I’ve had a bit of a lazy week. Have not exercised one day!! And, it was a conscious decision on my part. Just no energy—did housework, ran errands, observed my intern, did little jobs on “to-do” list but I did not exercise. I ... Read more
What IS my focus (really)????
Sunday, February 27, 2011      4 comments

I have been up, down and all around with deciding what my focus is for me. When I “joined” Sparkpeople, my focus was weight loss and that was it. After frustrating months of the scale not moving or moving in the wrong direction, I was ready to... Read more

Well, I was doing really well with exercise and eating until the weekend. One of my beagles, Toby, had surgery on Friday to have 2 cancerous tumors removed. Not major surgery but bad enough. We are waiting on biopsies. So, it seems my week... Read more
Starting the streak again.......
Monday, February 14, 2011      5 comments

Well, one of my goals is to blog at least once a week—guess I’ll be starting that streak over! My daughter and family were here last weekend and time just slipped away. So here I am today—better late than never, I guess. I am very happy I a... Read more

This has been a fairly good week for me. Still not exercising due to foot but trying to watch what I eat. Back to full commitment tomorrow!!! I am so ready!! Starting slow—10 to 20 minutes of cardio and back to tracking everything. Pedomete... Read more

Visiting my sweet grandchildren in PA for a couple of days. As I'm sitting on the arm of a chair with my adorable 3 year old granddaughter hugging me, she looks up at me and says "Grandma, your tummy looks like you're wearing a floatie!" ... Read more
Another week
Sunday, January 16, 2011      4 comments

I’ve had a pretty good week. Could have done better but certainly could have done worse. I was able to cut back on calories and stick within that range all week. I did not exercise, though. I’m trying to get this foot healed up and am willin... Read more
Two steps forward...........

Well, one week into the new year and my new baby step goals. I did a pretty good job! I’m happy with my exercise consistency and time. After not being able to exercise for 4-6 weeks, it felt good to be moving. I’m not so happy with my eating... Read more

Yes, I give up!! I have finally gotten a diagnosis of a stress fracture of the third metatarsal on my left foot. I am in a boot until at least December 29. I have not exercised for almost a month when the pain started. I have stopped trackin... Read more

OK, so I had the dreaded 60th birthday yesterday. It was a very typical day for me: house chores, grocery store, worked on Christmas cards and lists. My son was home sick with stomach flu, my hubby is on business in Florida, I am wearing a boo... Read more
Now what??
Sunday, November 21, 2010      4 comments

Where to start……my son has a long term sub position; hoping it turns into a contract for a full time position so that has bought me a month free from “son worry”. My dad’s health remains the same (not good but not declining) and he got a rever... Read more

Well, that's pretty much how I've been feeling. Not motivated for Spark since I spent the week with my daughter and grandkids with sinus infection (which I continue to fight). Saw a counselor last Monday----very good. She seems to "get it" an... Read more
Pushing forward
Sunday, October 10, 2010      4 comments

The weather has been glorious and my spirits have lifted a bit. I finally decided to get myself to counselor but the earliest appt was not until the 25th. I, of course, took it. We'll see how this goes. I'm not convinced that this will make ... Read more
