This afternoon I walked into a conversation between DH and the Infectious Disease doctor. The sheepish and recovering husband told the MD I nailed his diagnosis yesterday. Septicemia (blood infection). Yep. The you-could-be-6-hours-away-fro... Read more

Yes, yes, you've all told me. I've even done it a time or two. Measure and plan. Plan and measure. Don't keep triggers in the house. Use the Tracker. I have been doing all of the above and I think it's working. Not so much on the sca... Read more

Sure, that sounds silly considering the past 6 months, but heck there was nothing else to do! DH has had a few really good days so I said let's go see. We've spent countless days at RV shows in the past getting painful quad exercises stepping ... Read more

While I was dutifully logging in for the 366th day in a row, I was distracted by some large movement outside. These guys came to play. My camera was still set for the night sky so my pictures are not what I'd like. And my movements disturbed t... Read more

I "spun the wheel" June 14 of last year not realizing it would become a lifeline during the year to come. That day I posted a picture blog of our visit to Salt Lake City after spending a week in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks with th... Read more

I stood out on my pool deck for an hour at sunset tonight to catch glimpse of planets and moons. I wish I had better equipment but I'm satisfied. And I got some nice cool evening air. The moon ... Read more

Changing up my diet. It's not easy and a long time coming.
Monday, June 06, 2016      14 comments

I'm not sure how it happened, but I got it. I've had weeks of good, large and healthy meals. No hunger. No deprivation moments. Perhaps the consistent exercise days are contributing. Having less anxiety about what to make for the two of u... Read more

It should be simple. It is. It's our minds that are complicated! I kept over-thinking trying to make foods for the two of us that we'd both like. I'd eat the wrong things and get frustrated that food was going to waste, so I'd eat it. ... Read more
