There is a small gym at my condo. Two treadmills, stationary bike, weights, a few mats for floor exercises. I don't use it often. I used it today. My body is too stiff to run in the morning. It's too dark to run the streets after work. That lea... Read more

I'm so glad we are done with the election. It was messing with me. Talk about anxiety! I'm not happy about the outcome, but I am definitely much less stressed out now that we know. I am very grateful for an orderly transition of power. I dreaded... Read more

You know what they say: if you can't run with the big dogs, you gotta stay on the porch. Well, the NJ Triathlon is running with the big dogs. I don't expect to do anything more than land somewhere in the middle of my age group, but I want to at ... Read more

I mentioned in a comment to SLENDERELLA and I've said it blogs that I eat the same stuff over and over again. Somewhere along the way, I pulled a number out of the air and said I eat the same 15 foods. SLENDERELLA wants to know what they are, so... Read more

Wednesday, October 19, 2016      65 comments

It's coming, Sparkers. I weighed in at 158.4 this morning (butt nekkid). The middle number is a 5. Only 3.4 pounds until goal weight. It's so close. Weighed and measured at Spectrum, too. Not nearly as exciting since my clothes added pounds... Read more

Tuesday, October 18, 2016      14 comments

Day 17 of the Beck Diet Solution doesn't do it for me, Sparkers. And it has nothing to do with being rebellious. The exercise is to practice not overeating. Don't misunderstand, there was a time when I did overeat and I did it a lot. My bigger p... Read more
