Is the Weekend Over?
Sunday, March 14, 2010

I think I did the right thing...
Wednesday, March 10, 2010     

I went Monday morning to my aunt's funeral. She had been married to one of my dad's brothers for over 60 years. My dad had a family of 8 kids so this did not happen to be a family I saw very often. I hadn't seen my aunt and uncle in 35 years. Ca... Read more

Sharing Recipes/Kale Gratin and French Style Shrimp Salad
Thursday, March 04, 2010     

I'm going to continue with this theme as I know I will never run low of things to post. :) And it's helping me weed out my recipes. If I won't share them, I don't need them (too difficult, not healthy enough, etc). Both of these are really... Read more

Nothing exciting. Been a busy but uneventful week. I think I'm back on track with my eating. I didn't exercise yet today but was out pruning the fruit trees in the drizzle this morning and weeding the vegetable garden. I have garlic coming up, m... Read more
Someone kick my butt!!
Wednesday, February 10, 2010     

Okay. I'm getting mad now. I have sabotaged myself enough that I only lost 3 lbs in January (I was losing 10 lb a month when I stayed on program). And February, well forget about it. No, I'm not on a plateau. I gave myself permission to go off p... Read more

A Great SP Day...
Monday, January 25, 2010     

Today was a great SP day. I got to meet up with a fellow Sparker, walk, talk and have lunch. It was so nice not to have to worry if I talked about my food, or SP, or exercise or recipes too much. Others, who aren't in the same place tend to get ... Read more

That's the only way to explain it. I've been feeling overwhelmed and don't know why. I've been on vacation all week. We relaxed, we read, we watched movies, went to the movies, went out to eat, cooked at home and did a little household stuff. La... Read more
