Dare I say things are going well? Yes! I'm rocking the gym. Trying to keep my food in line and winning. Enjoying my life now that DH has healed and returned to himself after these past 4 years. I realized in my own busy haze that he was v... Read more
Choices for dining when visiting my children cooking feasts
Wednesday, December 26, 2018      8 comments

And I did not choose so wisely! DD2 and crew "cooked" a Christmas Eve feast. They do not have appetizers or have any chips in their house. They are more whole food, clean eating for the adults and try what you can with the kids. My choices ... Read more

This morning in my house with DH is low-key, quiet and filled with love. DD2's morning promises to be noisy, joyous and filled with sloppy kid kisses and probably a few kid-fights. DD1's morning will be not quite alone with dog, Chewy and prepar... Read more

We returned from DD1's house where we enjoyed a great dinner. The kids took the easy way out and picked up dinner at the local market. Reheat and eat. I had baked chicken, broccoli rabe, and salad. A smidge of pasta. No bread, rolls or goodies! ... Read more

My exercise awesomeness

My trainer evaluated my progress Thursday. I discussed my need to find more exercises that are gentle on my joints and told her I'm satisfied with biking as my aerobic workout. I had to give up my water running! I think my "freedom of movement" ... Read more

I know I've had a rough few years. Perhaps more than a few. I started Spark People in January 2009 so will be arriving at my 10 year Sparkiversary on January 1, 2019. Today my DH looked me over and stated, "you're looking skinny, kid". His... Read more

Sheesh! There she stood in all her sad glory. Hair a mess, in yoga pants and sweatshirt. Reaching out to take the bottles of ginger ale she related the story of GS2 asking her to read her a story while she was in the middle of throwing ... Read more

My sweet DH picked me up at the airport this afternoon after my five day absence. That in itself is quite a thrill that I'd trust him to drive the 40 miles to the airport which includes the infamous New Jersey Turnpike. It went well. He su... Read more

It's been difficult making good choices lately. You all know what happens when you loose your grip. Some things still slip through. I get to have 5 days of good eating as I'm visiting that cousin who keeps pushing me into the keto eating way... Read more

I stood on the scale grumbling about the possibility I could loose 7 pounds by the end of the year to get to Onederland. Then I looked at the calendar. That's in 4 weeks! I must be becoming one of "those old people"! I remember gettin... Read more
