Monday, March 05, 2012     

It's been a successful weekend all around. Due to unseasonally good weather, I got a lot of time in gardening and walking the dogs! Today will be Leslie and walking the dogs. This is good for me. I have a mental block against exercise. I am work... Read more

Friday, March 02, 2012     

I have 2 bad molars. They have been giving me trouble since last Labor Day. Awful pain. I was on vacation at the time so muddled through with tylenol, sensodyne toothpaste, etc. When I came back I went straight to the dentist. They took xrays an... Read more
NSVs and more, part II
Sunday, February 26, 2012     

So, it's been almost 2 months since I restarted my SP journey. Besides weight, what has happened? I am down a size and can now shop in any store for clothes. I will miss my big girls store, but am looking forward to more choices. Although, ... Read more
I need to get more rest...
Monday, February 20, 2012     

I have been up the last couple of nights with a whiny male dachsund. Our pug is in heat and who knew male dogs would whine so much. We have plenty of kennels to keep them apart during the day, taking turns bringing them in, letting them run, etc... Read more

Monday, February 13, 2012     

The week has been busy. We were gone for the weekend so now my housework has piled up. The kids try, but it's not the same. :) I have been finding and saving new recipes galore! From SP friends to Pinterest to my FB page... I can't keep up. I am... Read more
My garden is almost ready...
Sunday, February 05, 2012     

DH and I spent 3 hours today weeding, raking, rototilling and pruning fruit trees and grape vines. I am ready to plant my vegetables tomorrow. DS brought home a flat of a huge variety including thyme, parsley, kale, snow peas, chard, pearl onion... Read more
There are other sources for your calcium
Friday, February 03, 2012     

Here is a link to an article regarding sources of calcium. Dairy is one. But is it the best? Yes it provides calcium but it also has properties that aren't necessarily good for you. www.onegreenplanet.org/n

What's for dinner?
Wednesday, February 01, 2012     

I have a very good friend who used to be a macrobiotic chef. She is now a private chef for a family and sends out pictures of her creations. I try to cook healthy vegan at least 2x a week. This one looks good! Dinner Tonight: Bolivian Red Q... Read more
NSVs Galore... and More
Monday, January 23, 2012     

NSVs galore this week. Pants saggy. Even able to snugly snap a size smaller pants on. My energy came back. I had been pretty sluggish and was wondering what was going on. It's back. My DH thinks I have started drinking caffeine. M... Read more
Need a rainy day plan for exercise...
Thursday, January 19, 2012     

Everyone wants to be in the living room where it is warm. Noone wants to go to their bedrooms, including me. But doing Leslie while 3 kids are concentrating on homework is not in the plan. Maybe a headset, a long cord and I can go to the kitche... Read more
Help, I can't get up..... (no, I'm okay)
Wednesday, January 18, 2012     

But I can't get up. I am on the couch with my computer. I am working and Sparking. It's my lunch hour. It also must be animal nap time. Because I have a doxie under my left arm, a pug on top of my left arm and a shepherd holding down my right f... Read more
Wonderful week, even though I didn't lose any weight...
Monday, January 16, 2012     

Nope, maybe 1/2 lb but not enough to count. Don't know why. Calories were very good this week. I ate clean, I added a green smoothie a day as one meal, ate more veggies than I could imagine I ever would, added 20 min of walking a day. And, nope,... Read more
What a day...
Friday, January 13, 2012     

I took most of the day off to run errands that I wanted done before the weekend. Took a car to get the back brakes done. They promised me one hour tops. 2 1/2 hours later... Thank goodness there was a Jamba Juice about .5 mile down the road. Got... Read more
Need to find my balance
Thursday, January 12, 2012     

My goal for today is to do some exercise, enjoy the sunshine while it is here, reach out to a friend and eat clean all day. Because normally I don't exercise and I don't get outside if the weather is good. I must plan and set goals. Will ta... Read more
I panicked...
Tuesday, January 10, 2012     

So, I had dinner all planned tonight. Pork chops (DH and I were going to split one), kale, homemade applesauce (from my apple and pear trees this Fall) and some grain. My DS and DIL decided to go to the movies late afternoon and plans changed. T... Read more
