Eating a bit more than I'd like but balancing the load. Not getting as much exercise as I'd like but getting some which is better than what I did three weeks ago. My stupid hip bursitis came back with a vengeance, I rested it for almost 2 ye... Read more

OMG, I forgot this. Have you seen the IKEA commercial where the bad kid gets time out in the kitchen? Yep, that's where we are. "What's this, Nana?" "Why, Nana" "Pop Pop, what's this?" The statement is punctuated by picking up, squee... Read more

I had an epiphany this morning. I have time to care for myself, and I am doing so. In the years since 1999 I'd been helping caring for first my ill mom, to her death in 2001, then my MIL, to her death in 2005. From 2002 it was my dad ... Read more

I got off my chair and out the door. I just started running. I ran to the end of the drive and kept on going. I got to end of the street and kept going. HaHaHa! It wasn't quite like that but the Forrest Gump scene kept playing in... Read more

Thanks, ONEKIDSMOM! Again, your hammer went down on the nail. My life WAS exercise! In the summer I walked or biked to the creek or the bay, 1 mile in either direction, to crab, fish or swim on the days Mom didn't drag us to the beach. At ... Read more

Yep. Guns blazing, up in the saddle, hooves spewing dirt clods on the trail behind me. Whoa, partner, this wind up toy isn't ready for THAT! I did sweat profusely on my walk- cut one minute off my 1.38 mile path. I don't think I can wa... Read more

I finished the last of my ice cream tonight. It snuck back into my diet although I finally tossed the container that sat in the freezer for 4 months. I took off 20 pounds and have gained back 4. Here goes...with edits to keep it current. ... Read more

The current temperature at 6 am is 62! Warm, clear 80-85F days and cool, dry nights. This is the kind of weather I dream about, go to the mountains or high desert for. Even the neighborhood birds are singing late into the season. Usuall... Read more
