My Mom
Sunday, October 14, 2007      2 comments

Another Sunday, another call from my brother in Ohio with updates on my Mom. She's in a nursing home, because the level of care she's needing now is beyond our capabilities. The main reason for this is the years she spent not eating right, not... Read more
relaxing day
Saturday, October 13, 2007      2 comments

well, I was hoping to get the whole family out today for a bike ride, and maybe a picnic, but just couldn't get them going! Justin really was worn out from the 6th grade retreat he went on this past week. We did get out to a movie, and the lib... Read more
Finally - a loss!
Friday, October 12, 2007      4 comments

Just a half a pound, but my weight had stayed in the same place for so long, I was beginning to think the scales were broken! Oh, I admit, I had strayed off my approved foods list, and no, I was exercising the way I knew I needed to, but still ... Read more
My kind of weather - finally!
Thursday, October 11, 2007      2 comments

Wow - what a nice morning for a long walk with my doggies! The temps. are in the high 60's (which, IMO, is perfect!) the sky is such a pretty blue (yes, we still desperately need rain, but still, I do love a Carolina blue sky!) and the dogs a... Read more
Dealing with my triggers - sort of
Wednesday, October 10, 2007      3 comments

Well, the first step in dealing with your triggers, is identying them, and I think I've pretty well done that, at least. I want to eat when I'm bored, when I'm stressed, when I see my favorite yummies, and (I know this one is senseless!) when ... Read more
Last week already!

I can't believe it's the last week of the LAP challenge already - it's gine by really fast! What have I accomplished this month? Well, the scales have stubbornly stayed glued in it's spot, but I have stepped up my exercising, drinking more wat... Read more
Get it out of my sight!
Monday, October 08, 2007      2 comments

I told my husband and my kids yesterday that they could have their goodies, but they have to hide them! I have the world's biggest sweet tooth, and if it's somewhere where I can see it, it's mine! So far, so good - the dreaded "talking " cooki... Read more
goal for next week
Sunday, October 07, 2007      3 comments

Last weeks goal (3 bike rides, in addition to my walks) has gone well, but I'm still stuck at 154. I know what my next goal has to be. I've been getting a little too lax about eating late at night, and I know good and well that doesn't work fo... Read more
Thanks, Emily!

I read the article on diet sabateurs - very interesting! I can see how I've always surrounded myself with people who are also overweight, and some of these people seem to be doing their best to keep me fat! I don't think they do it on purpose,... Read more
sabataugers! (sp)
Friday, October 05, 2007      3 comments

As if anyone with a significent amount of weight to lose don't have enough problems with food - why do the people who are closest to us insist on tempting us further? I love my husband, but he is so bad for this! He brings in my favorite cooki... Read more
hmmmmmmm.........
Thursday, October 04, 2007      2 comments

Ok - I've been sitting here long enough trying to think of something to write. I seem to have writer's block this morning, and can't think of a thing. No pearls of wisdom, or even bunny pellets of nonsense from me today! lol Hope this still ... Read more
mowed grass - 1st time since?????
Wednesday, October 03, 2007      1 comments

We've finally got just enough moisture to grow a little grass! It's been SO dry here, I can't even remember the last time we mowed it. I took the opportunity to get extra exercise in by using the push mower on our 3/4 acre lawn. And I real... Read more

I'm glad I had resolved to take at least 3 bike rides this week! This morning, in addition to the regular Tuesday morning garbage pickup, there were several teams of tree-trimmers in our neighborhood - very NOISY tree-trimmers, and very NOISY ... Read more
New month - new beginnings
Monday, October 01, 2007      2 comments

Ok - it's a new month. How am I going to make it different from last month? I feel like I really need to shake things up some. I've been taking the same walk every morning with the dogs, doing the same weight exercises MWF, the same crunches... Read more
Lazy Sunday
Sunday, September 30, 2007      2 comments

Sometimes, it's really good to just have a lazy day! That's how I was today. After church this morning, we went out to eat, and back home, I read a little and took a nice, long nap. Talked to my brother on the phone, finished reading the pape... Read more
