  • Birthday wishes

    7/10/2020 11:13:30 AM, by LESLIELENORE

    It is my 46th birthday today. My friend insists that makes me middle aged, but I don’t think so. I think of 50 as middle aged, lol. Anyways, I thought I would write down some of my birthday wishes for myself and for others. 1. I wish for peace of mind. 2. I wish for good health. 3. I wish for fre... Read more

  • 5% Challenge...

    7/8/2020 12:14:24 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    So far, so good! I've gotten so much encouragement and inspiration from my team and am doing well so far. I did two days of cardio boogie boot camp and one day of arms video. I've walked every day and am well above my planned step total. I do so much better when there is accountability. Hoping ... Read more

    I am on a new medication that causes weight gain. Sigh. My doctor and I had to weigh the benefits against the side effects. So far it’s working as intended, so there’s that. On the other hand I have gained 6 pounds in 3 weeks. I was trying to lose that much... not gain it! I know, I know, the scale... Read more

  • 5% Summer Challenge...

    7/3/2020 1:38:49 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    I'm so excited to begin this challenge. Some people have already begun, depending on the time zones. I've done several of these, but not recently. Since I regained some weight thanks to poor weight management during a lengthy steroid treatment, a long cruise, another fun vacation and holidays dur... Read more

  • Moving... again

    7/3/2020 4:46:45 AM, by LESLIELENORE

    Hopefully this is my last move for a while! I am moving in with my dad. My niece, Tigan, moved to Cleveland where she will be attending law school in the fall. She had moved in with dad after my mom died, because she wanted to spend time with dad. I think it was good for both of them, but now she i... Read more

  • New Week...New Chance to Succeed!

    6/28/2020 5:23:05 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    As I watch the scale...do nothing!, I tend to get frustrated. 24 But, then, I remember the changes I have made. I am more active on purpose. 311 362 I eat far more cleanly again. 491 267 485 490 289 I strive to get more sleep. 102 I track exercise and food. With these improvements in m... Read more

  • Grumble, grumble

    6/26/2020 4:20:39 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    I find myself a bit grumpy these days. DH has so many zoom get togethers and meetings and he's been golfing with a bunch of friends for a month now. I do have a few zoom things I'm part of, but I so miss seeing my friends in person. And, I am afraid to fly right now so we have no plans to visit o... Read more

  • A New Week!

    6/22/2020 6:36:02 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    It was such a joy to spend part of Father's Day at a bbq at dd's home. We got to play games with grandkids and some with their parents, including Battleship, basketball and. I think, Wits and Wagers. My husband got to take a ride in our SIL's new corvette and plan a fly fishing trip with him and o... Read more

  • I can do all things...

    6/17/2020 2:02:45 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    ...through Christ who gives me strength. (Phil. 4:13) Lately I've not done well with this life verse of mine. I must remember, pray and do as He leads. I've been following my own will and it has led me away from the healthy choices my body craves. Today will be a better day and so will tomorr... Read more

  • To weigh or not to weigh...that is the question

    6/16/2020 2:37:41 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    Actually it's daily or not. I tend to lose weight better with daily weighing. But, I'm again trying to skip days to see what will happen. In the past I've always gained when I didn't weigh each day. So, we'll see. I didn't weigh today and feel pretty stressed about that. In the great scheme of... Read more
