I haven't blogged in a long time. I have lost 80 pounds but the last year I've only maintained. At present I'm up about 5 pounds from my lowest weight. I'm not obsessing about it but I am a little concerned. I know I've eaten more than I had... Read more

It's been a long time since I last blogged. Just needed to acknowledge my tendency to eat when left to my own devices. Bob is playing euchre and the child in me immediately started proding me to fix chocolate chip cookies. Love to eat the do... Read more

It's quite and peaceful this morning. Bob is still sleeping and as usual I have been up for about an hour. Not much movement in the neighborhood and I stood and looked out our patio door at the barren fields. Soon the soil will be cultivated ... Read more

What a wonderful way to start my day. I checked my email first thing and found birthday wishes from both Wanda and Mauri. Thank you for remembering me and bringing me a smile the very first thing. Sparkpeople sent me a great message and one... Read more

Good morning It doesn't seem like it has been as long as it has since I blogged. I checked this morning and I started my exercise program Sept 26. In this time I have missed 3 times getting my walk in. No excuses just didn't get it done ... Read more

Spent time in meditation filling myself spiritually. I got myself outside to walk at 6:45. Maybe I should say "my friends" strongly encouraged me to go out and walk especially since I missed yesterday. Missing one day may not seem like much b... Read more

I always know talking to God is my strength. Listening isn't always that strength. It is my downfall. When I first start something it's full speed ahead and then the steam starts to dissipate and that's when my good intentions fall apart. I... Read more

This morning I found myself sleeping until 7:00 so my walk was postponed until 9:00. I said my prayers and called on my friends to help me. When I get off schedule I tend to use this as an excuse to forego some of the most important things ra... Read more

I missed blogging the last couple days. I've been quilting at my aunt's and been tired. Sounds funny to say I'm tired from just sitting and quilting. I have been getting my walking in every morning and making sure I'm spiritually filled bef... Read more

It's raining and overcast today. These kind of days always make me want to burrow down into the covers and sleep a little later. This morning the unrelenting knowledge I needed to rise and and go to the bathroom nipped that in the bud. Once ... Read more

I don't know why I still argue about the exercise. I was a little later than usual waking up and immediately started rationalizing I wouldn't have time to exercise before getting Bob up and leaving to paint. I did my reading and the prodding k... Read more
