I avoid bedtime. I have done this forever but once I was grown and out of the house I reveled in it. There's no reason for it and I know that. I know a lot of things: I know lack of sleep can cause over-eating. I know waking up tired... Read more

I love potato chips, but I'm selective. My absolute favorite is "Perfectly Salted" from Starbucks. Last night I had an evening meeting after work. Instead of going home to eat (and not wanting to leave again)...I did a few errands and then... Read more

Today I didn't go to the gym or jump on the treadmill. I did not do weights, yoga, stretches or push ups. But I feel like I did. I took care of five of my grandkids today. So there was lifting, and swing pushing, and fast walking behind a t... Read more

Day 4 of the re-re-re start
Thursday, September 28, 2017      1 comments

It's one of those bright crispy days that reminds me why I still live in the Midwest. I like change. I thrive on it. When things don't change I feel off. Something not right in my world. Which is why everyone who knows this about ... Read more

It isn't that I give up on healthy eating and exercise and weight loss. I think about it every day. Sometimes I imagine I can do it on my own and try. That doesn't last long. Weeks will go by and one day will remember I haven't done it. So ... Read more
