  • On and Off Topic

    4/1/2020 5:49:32 PM, by SLENDERELLA61

    So many thoughts about mom, about the virus, about Martin in quarantine, about my niece and sister and unfinished conversations..... Thinking about where to go from here. Oh, not today. Right here today. We finally have a stay at home order as of this afternoon but we've been staying in ever since f... Read more

  • Update and enjoying warmer weather

    3/31/2020 9:08:13 AM, by WINACHST

    Well, I am surviving having 2 of our grandchildren and they seem to surviving being around us. I am glad that I am active because I am able to get them outdoors for some exercise. We live in the country and so we can be outside and not encounter other people. Grandson complains when I say it is time... Read more

  • I was just thinking ---

    3/29/2020 10:45:02 AM, by SLENDERELLA61

    that years of dieting and then trying to live healthy have given me an advantage in times like these. I have followed so many different food plans that I can eat almost anything. Hubby is dying to go to the store to buy eggs and some things he eats every day. I can eat anything. I suspect I have 2 m... Read more

  • Bird Banding

    3/28/2020 12:42:47 AM, by ANNIEMAROO

    I was invited to a bird banding station last summer. I was able to see how the migrating birds were caught in nets, banded, and set free. I went one morning to see the daytime birds, and helped a volunteer by holding the cloth bags that the birds were placed in while the rest of the birds were ex... Read more

  • Over

    3/27/2020 4:18:10 PM, by SLENDERELLA61

    Mom's celebration of life is over. I think if she had been here she would have been very pleased. Both of her children, all 3 of her grandchildren, and both of her great grandchildren were here plus my hubby, my daughter's hubby, niece's boyfriend and nephew's girlfriend. My sister's boyfriend (oh, ... Read more

  • beck Diet Solution on hold

  • Love in the Time of Coronavirus 19

    3/23/2020 9:02:15 AM, by MRSLIVINGWELL

    Strange times that we find ourselves in. Today I will become a one woman factory producing facemasks for hospitals. Everyday, I am committed to exercise and good eating to be in fighting shape to prevent the worst complications of CV19, Flu or anything. Brushing and flossing with enthusiasm ... Read more

  • Good Info, I Think

    3/20/2020 10:15:58 AM, by SLENDERELLA61

    I have a good friend who is an RN. She gave me some info I think is accurate and I want to pass it on. If you've been following me you know I had a bad cold 5 or 6 weeks ago and it just hung on and hung on. In fact I still feel like my lungs are not 100%. I wondered if I could have already had the C... Read more

  • Not Usual

    3/19/2020 4:46:55 PM, by SLENDERELLA61

    Today I went to my piano lesson as usual. Almost usual -- the teacher wiped the piano down with disinfectant very thoroughly before I started playing. I had taken antiseptic hand wipes for my hands, too. Next week my lesson is scheduled to be on FaceTime. That should work! My running group is r... Read more

  • Health and Peace

    3/18/2020 7:33:01 PM, by SLENDERELLA61

    My Senior Games 5Ks and 1.5K were cancelled on March 14. I understood. They just cancelled the Mayfaire 5K scheduled for May 9th. Oh, no. I had hoped it would be all over by then. At noon they announced the first Covid-19 confirmed case in my county. Oh, no. No fresh or frozen chicken and... Read more

  • Beck Diet Solution Day 14 Plan for Tomorrow

    3/14/2020 11:05:54 AM, by WINACHST

    This one is a hard task for me to do, I struggle with planning and prepping for my meals ahead of time even though I know that this is one of the keys to success. For me, if I have something already prepared and if I am away from home it is easy to say, "I can wait until I get home." My biggest... Read more

  • Beck Diet Solution Day 13 Overcome Cravings

    3/14/2020 10:50:09 AM, by WINACHST

    That quote " The best way to overcome cravings is to stop giving in to them." says it all. Days 11, 12 and 13 have helped me focus on my timings of when and what I am eating. Yesterday, I am so glad I did my little notes to self about this day before I went shopping. I found myself in the candy... Read more

  • Better than I thought (IBC 5%)

    3/14/2020 10:22:16 AM, by WINACHST

    Today is weigh-in for the 5% in between challenge and I was frustrated because my weight was up a pound from my mid-week weigh-in. BUT, as I logged my weight for today, I noticed I dropped a pound from last week. Now, I am feeling better about that number even though I know the number only tell... Read more

  • Beck Diet Solution Day 11 & 12

    3/12/2020 11:23:20 AM, by WINACHST

    Day 11 - Differentiate Be Hunger, Desire, and Cravings In my little journal I am keeping this time doing this, I was wanting to write down the definitions of these terms. So I searched my computer files because I have a memory of doing this in the past. But I could not find any files that I sav... Read more

  • Upbeat Anyway

    3/12/2020 9:15:44 AM, by SLENDERELLA61

    I am feeling pretty upbeat despite dealing with a whole lot of things that aren't anything to cheer about. Got to admit I broke the 10 minute a day dog walk. I made it to day 160. Then Casey started limping. It was funny in that I couldn't see a thing wrong with his leg but he would sit holding... Read more

  • Beck Diet Solution Days 8 - 10

    3/10/2020 11:47:14 AM, by WINACHST

    This time around I am doing a simplified version and not giving it so much thought that I get too overwhelmed with it all and end up giving up. Day 8 -- hey!! what was I reading all those other times - this day is to focus on creating time and energy for eating healthy and exercise. In the past... Read more

  • Boneyard Main Hike

    3/9/2020 12:31:54 AM, by ANNIEMAROO

    It's always fun to go caching and that is what Laurie and I did for 5 hours today. Since it was the first day after day light savings, we decided to drive out at 9 am. Got to the trail head about 10 am and returned to the car about 3pm. Good plan because it was a crisp 0 degrees out at 8 am. F... Read more

  • Beck Diet Solution Day 7

    3/7/2020 9:12:38 PM, by WINACHST

    Arrange Your Environment One thing I have done is I bought a bigger bowl for my salads - lots of room to add all those veggies. A positive for me is that I do not put dressing on my salad and I eat all the veggies plain. My husband said he wants to not bring the snacks into the house - I ... Read more

  • Good Run-Walk Today

    3/7/2020 11:16:56 AM, by SLENDERELLA61

    I decided not to run with my group today for several reasons. It was really cool this morning, so I got a good night's sleep and ran at 8:30am. It was still in the 50's. Pretty soon our only good running time will be before 8am. Even though I missed the socializing, I thought training on my own this... Read more

  • Daily Blog for the 5% Winter Challenge

    3/6/2020 6:43:28 PM, by ANNIEMAROO

    I'm really glad I joined the 5% challenge. I have lost a couple of pounds, had fun competing with the team against the other teams. Maybe the competition is what got me going, maybe the team mates that chat back and forth, but whatever it is, I'm in for the next round! If you are curious and... Read more

    3/5/2020 4:18:49 PM, by ANNIEMAROO

    I read a few inspirational articles this morning and decided that today is the day I knuckle down and put my whole heart and soul into loosing some more weight. I joined the 5 km Calendar challenge and followed the walk a minute jog a minute eight times. I had already walked up to the lake and st... Read more

  • Better

    3/5/2020 2:03:55 PM, by SLENDERELLA61

    Plans are coming together for us to come together as a family to remember mom, say goodbye, console each other, spend some time, and do the things we feel lead to do. Hope that everyone gets to express what they want and that we all feel supported. I have started preparing the house. Niece Ally... Read more
