This is the soccer field behind my house. My daughter calls it The Katelantic Ocean. I guess no one will be playing soccer today. It rained so hard last night, I woke u... Read more

Well, it is weigh-in day and I'm down about 1/2 pound. I'm not upset by this because there were many dinners out this week. One with in-laws to cheer up Marcella before her Oncologist meeting, one after the meeting to celebrate the positive ne... Read more

On Friday, my husband and his sister had to meet with my Mother-in-law's Oncologist. We really were preparing ourselves for the worst. However, the news was pretty good! She has a very slow moving cancer and both breast and lung cancers can b... Read more

Yesterday, on my daily walk, I start as always, slow walk, fast walk, short (and I mean short!), run. I ran a bit longer than normal and felt really strong. So a bit further on, I started to run again. BAM! Sharp pain in my left calf. Ouch... Read more

We visited dear friends out of state yesterday and I was a bit worried about how to control my eating. You know how it is, snacks are available and you are talking and totally unaware of how many calories you are eating until you get home. You... Read more

The weather, being so great yesterday, called me out to garden. My daughter and I got many bags of compost, manure, topsoil and mulch. We spread them on the gardens and weeded and it looks so nice. (At least the front yard.) I was so pleas... Read more

My lovely daughter is off from school this week. Her class went on the D.,C. trip and when my husband saw the cost proposal, he said "Are they crazy? I can take all of us for that much!" So we went on Easter Break and she is off this week.... Read more

Okay, once again, I get to be the bearer of bad news. My lovely 14 year old daughter recommended Go Roma to her father recently. She enjoyed it so much on a birthday lunch date with friends. So we hop in the car and go. I like to check on my... Read more

Yesterday, I went to a delightful 50th anniversary luncheon. I was SO good. I passed on the fried chicken and gravy, had one (1!) bite of stuffing, 2 servings of beans and no cake. I was so happy to come home and log how I stuck to the plan! ... Read more

At first, when I told the family that we were all going to eat healthy, I thought I'd hear groans and sighs, but I was wrong. Everyone was in agreement. We had just gotten back from vacation and we all overdid it. So I can't blame them if I f... Read more

Yesterday, I wrote about my craving for something Baaaaddd! Well, thanks to all your support, I managed to get through. Here's what I did, if any of you ever have this feeling. First, I ate a healthy lunch. Grilled chicken breast pieces, wi... Read more

Oh, boy. The first two weeks were easy, but I think I'm having a bit of withdrawal. Last night, I was getting ready for bed, watching a bit of TV and a commercial for a bacon cheeseburger popped on. Now, I have never had a bacon cheeseburger ... Read more
