Yes...the white stuff was deep (knee high in some places) and unbroken by either animal or human. And it was steep...the mountain is steep even when it's covered in grass and wildflowers. But 1.25 hrs of snowshoeing and breaking a trail in very ... Read more
Motherlode of a Motivator! Horrors!
Saturday, October 16, 2010 8 comments
We stayed at a hotel where there's a full-length mirror on the inside of the bathroom door...which is directly in front of the "throne." Horror of horrors! If that doesn't motivate one to "put down the fork and go exercise", I don't know wh... Read more

I saw that on a sign at a craft show..and decided it's my new motto. It's so darned true. I've been miserable from horrendous skin rashes and severe allergy-like reactions since the last time I pulled down trees in the woods....so I holed up in... Read more

My SP friend, IDeborah, commented, "I bet you're hiking and biking like a house on fire." Uh, oh. I was so NOT hiking or biking like even a puny twig on fire. To be honest: 1) I was afraid of physically encountering a moose (wh... Read more

MY SP friend, Barbara_boo, has inspired me beyond words. (And Chris Downie was brilliant to include the "community support" of SP!) Check out her Spark Page...you'll be astounded! She's just completed 101 consecutive days of of burning more calo... Read more

What is "bull's eye?" By definition: a. any statement or act that is precisely to the point or achieves a desired result directly. b. something that is decisive or crucial; crux. My SP friend, Visuallyrics, hit the bull's eye... Read more

Just call me "Goldilocks"! Upon arrival home from a lengthy trip, we discovered a torn screendoor, a ravished pantry, cupboards and freezer and a face-on-the floor, 53" (very heavy) dresser in the bedroom! Since it's been so cold that no grass ... Read more

I left my pedometer somewhere 50 miles away a couple of weeks ago by mistake. So I bought a new one..a little fancier one that might actually stay clipped to my clothes & not fall off. But the number of steps seemed w-a-a-a-y too high. Or else I... Read more
Chocolate Bunny gets the boot!

I'm gonna wash that bunny right outta my hair (hare?) (most of you are too young to remember this song). I've got a no-bunny streak goin' and it ends on Easter. If there's a bunny left on the shelf, I can have it. But I don't think I'll take it... Read more
Taking my scale on my bike ride with me next time.

When I blog & report my successes (hoping to affirm my effort & inspire others), I immediately fall off (and under) the wagon. So I can't do that anymore. Let's just say that I'm boycotting the chocolate bunny industry in Southern CA and my bik... Read more

I love CA! Took my first bike ride since Sept! Overlooking the Pacific and basking in the sun. Then walked 1 1/2 hr around town, then to farmer's market, to the ocean and practiced line dance routines. 11,500 steps. Snowshoeing & shoveling ... Read more

Well...life changes. After staying most of my days and nights in Jan. with my dad, he passed away 2 weeks ago. I stayed in his room at the Hospice Center and had the privilege of caressing his face, head and hands as he finally gave up his fierc... Read more

Tough day with Dad in hospice. He can't speak, doesn't eat or drink. Sometimes comprehends but usually doesn't. Pushing something away with his arm... I've been 'sleeping' in the room with him..nurses awaken him every 2 hrs to reposition him. He... Read more

My 92 yr old dad went to ER twice last week by ambulance. Then he had a minor back surgery involving anesthesia which resulted in hallucinations and disorientation. He thought I was a friend of my deceased mother. And he urged me to close the d... Read more
