In over 3 years I'll be 'old enough to brag about my age'. We have 2 sons who grew up in the kitchen. Our 8 grandchildren enjoy helping in the kitchen.


Enjoys travelling for the architecture and culture (including food). Best parts are the people we meet both on the ship and in port. The foods we try are usually very tasty. Funniest time was our version of 'Cappuccino & Gelato'. The basic rule was try one or the other in each port of call. Fascinating variations. Walking around the waterfront in Genoa, we got distracted and enjoyed both plus a huge pastry. (Took me two or 3 days to eat my share).

So many things remind me of fun we've had in our travels. Getting lost can be a great adventure if we are creative about communicating when we don't know the language.

Living inland, I miss the ocean and mountains,

Apr. 10, 2021. When I started this journey, I wanted to get under 200 from almost 210. Mindful eating, and I made it.
Revised my goal to 195, well, if I can do that, I'll go for 189.
I was getting excited and when I reached 190, I decided I could get to 185. Wow. I did it. According to one doctor, That is my optimum weight.
Today I am at 184.7. Last week it was 184.5. For 3 consecutive days I had gains.
My hubby (His Honor - because he is bossy) was under 273 yesterday. Today he is over 274. That is progress since he started me on this journey. He was almost 280. No need to mention his habitual behavior and moans about pain. Proper exercise and actual movement would help him.
At one time, there was only a 10-20 pound difference in our weights. Last year he was about 70 pounds heavier. Now it is 90 pounds. He has been to so many classes directed at better health but considers low-nutrition foods essential.

    Thank you reading my blog “Remember When Exercise was Fun” and sharing you own memories. While we all had “fun” in our own way, your experience was something I only read about in books. I love these Spark connections.

    I use to have cravings before I found a doctor who put me on Metformin and my blood sugar went from 115 (diabetes starts at 126) and it is 84 now. But I know what it is to eat a bag of chips and then listen to that voice "Harriet" tell you what a failure you are. I dropped 50# and have kept it off for 4 yrs.

    Thank you for reading my blog “Functional Fitness” and sharing your story
    Many times in my commute I thought that it would be faster to walk.
    My recent unexpected episode was a great reminder for me to keep up both my mental and physical fitness as best as possible even after nearly three quarters of a century on this earth.

    LOL "Soft kitty, Warm kitty" Sheldon!! HAHAHAHA that'll ALWAYS make me laugh!! Which is a great stress buster!!

    THANKFULLY this past weekend was nice and though busy it wasn't stressful. Hey the dawg team did a ZOOM meeting!! It was so COOL to faces of each other, and hear the laughter!! Not all of course could come, but 11 of us made it. Was so neat!! As leaders of the Dawggies we now do a ZOOM meeting to mix things up. It works out REALLY good.

    Thanks for stopping by--My husband bounced around just in some of the states when we were younger. We really have no desire to travel---but due to health issues for me--I am unable to travel any distance---even to the coast which is one hour away. Just one of those things--But I must take care of my body.
