Enjoying life and not fretting about the small things
Monday, October 01, 2018      11 comments

Enjoying life. Yesterday we played Monopoly with the grandkids and DD1. Our banker, GS1, is now a third grader and very competent in his math. GS2 played for a while, lost interest, then I played for him. The best way to end the game occurred ... Read more
The behavior alphabet

I've spent the last two weeks "helping" DH sort his stuff. He calmed down on the idea that I need to help sort his items. Working with him in a non-confrontational attitude has allowed me to view his behaviors. I knew there was an OCD component ... Read more

I continue to eat well. I've called up those nutrition reports we can access and am delighted to see myself staying within all the targets. I've been able to turn down trigger foods and occasionally have given in but with a limited volume. ... Read more
Trying new things keto

Sure, bagels, muffins and the like are tasty but in my old life could go months without any. I've proved I can live without them. Today at my cousin's urging (nagging) I made one of the 90 second keto breads and prepared a breakfast sandwich w... Read more

After 30 years I learned Mrs Kim's first name today minutes before she drove away to her new life! We shared a bunch of tears and smiles while wishing each other good fortune for the future. Gosh, it's sad. Although we exchanged phone numbers I ... Read more

ONEKIDSMOM and WATERMELLEN have had some good words today that I'm hijacking for how I am learning to eat. I've finally found something that works for me and have managed to almost reach my short goal for October first. Things I've learned?... Read more

Last night several fun, funny things happened. Not so funny, DD1 was involved in a 5 car pileup on her way to work in the morning and ultimately was slammed by two cars who didn't stop while a fender bender was being investigated on the roa... Read more

Yesterday I pulled the vegetable garden plants no longer producing or looking tired. The squirrels had eaten the bottoms of the big tomatoes and dug around to hide their stashes! I harvested at least 10 Ancho chilies to throw in the freezer. Al... Read more

Will someone please tell me what the heck to do about this weight loss stall? My diet has never been better. Cleaner. Junk free. Well controlled. I'm not hungry, I'm not sneaking. I'm tracking everything. 1150-1350 calories a day by choice.... Read more
Sitting on babies, not so easy any more!

When DD1 first asked me to watch the three kids so they could attend a wedding, I hesitatingly said yes. DH is cute but no help. He wants to snuggle, not play on the floor. The dynamics of three is very apparent and the pairings are rough and tu... Read more

I stopped by the nurses' office got my check up in the gym. They've got newfangled equipment like a GPS stick for height (mine's the same, still 5'6") and this whole body gizmo you stand on in bare feet while holding electrode handles. This give... Read more
Relearning again and again

It's not that I can't, it's that I won't do the full keto diet that's such a rage. I'm still squeamish about whole eggs and my cousin has been bombarding my with "it's ok, the science was all wrong". I wanted that peach for a snack last night, c... Read more
Feeling my new exercises today, owww. Good owww

I'm a diligent strength trainer. I love the lifting, tugging and rhythmic pulling of various cable machines. I prefer them over free weights as my joints, mainly my spine, don't like when I veer from a proper plane. Yesterday we went out of my c... Read more
