Today was the end of the Winter 5% challenge. This has been a very emotional one for me. So many things have happened that have affected me in so many ways. It is still difficult to think of friends that have lost everything, but came through th... Read more
Sad Day

Today has been a devastating day for our state. Areas not too far from me were hit hard with a tornado early this morning. We had a strong storm here with lots of heavy rain, thunder, intense lightening, and hail. Many lives were lost and sever... Read more

Today I went to stock up on some groceries. Most of what I was getting was canned vegetables, fruits, and seeds I really needed to get some other things, but it was another rainy day, and my husband was with me. I hate to go shopping with my hus... Read more

Today was a beautiful sunny day with mild temperatures. Went to church and had a great service. Hubby wanted to go out to eat for lunch, but the food was not that great. We decided not to go there again. I much prefer to have home cooked meals. ... Read more

Today is the beginning of the last week in the Winter 5% Challenge. I don't usually blog, but that is one of our assignments for this last week. I have not done well at all so far, so today I am examining my progress so far and determining what ... Read more
Tomorrow Has to be Better
Monday, January 28, 2019      7 comments

As I've said before, I don't like it when someone else is in control of my day. I had found some menus which were healthy, high fiber (which I need), easy to prepare, and delicious. I had my day planned. However, this morning just before leaving... Read more
Sticks and Stones
Thursday, August 16, 2018      10 comments

When I was growing up, I would often hear the phrase, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never harm me." They lied. Words do hurt. I think it would easier to recover from a slap in the face than to overcome cruel words. Words s... Read more
Exercise Schedule
Friday, June 15, 2018      3 comments

A challenge today was to write about my exercises schedule and how I can improve. The last two weeks have not been successful in exercise. I have gotten lots of activity, but not actual exercise. We have been busy doing some remodeling inside an... Read more
Not Giving Up!
Saturday, June 09, 2018      6 comments

Today is one of those days when one sometimes feels like just giving up. We are remodeling and my kitchen is torn all apart. I don't even have counter space for food prep right now. Hoping this will be finished soon. With having to make alternat... Read more
It's Been a Crazy Day!

My morning started with a visit to the doctor to check about my thumb which is giving me some problems. It wants to slip sideways at the top joint. I can push it back, but it won't stay. I thought it may be out of place, but the doctor says it j... Read more
Great Non Scale Victories

I love working in my flower garden, but for the last 3 years or more, I just haven't had the energy to do anything much in my garden. This week I have worked longer and harder in my flowers than I have in ages. I give all the credit to Spark Peo... Read more
Don't Like Not Having Control Over Food Choices
Saturday, May 20, 2017      13 comments

The last few days have not been good for me calorie wise. I have no support from hubby in this, and that can sometimes become quite a problem. For example, today we went to a car show in another town. He has rebuilt a l950 Ford truck and loves t... Read more
Exercise Routine
Friday, March 24, 2017      2 comments

Currently I usually do pilates every day and try to work in some strength training with dumbbells three times a week. This works for me. I am doing the Jumpstart Your Workout Challenge and that has helped me stay on track and stay accountable. I... Read more
The New Smoking?
Monday, January 30, 2017      14 comments

I just read an article from our small town newspaper that was really scary and an eye opener. The title was "Chronic Sitting May be as Deadly as Smoking". It is being called "The New Smoking" because it can cause some of the same issues as smok... Read more
Not a Good Week
Friday, January 13, 2017      2 comments

This has not been one of my better weeks where exercise is concerned. I usually have a routine of walking inside first thing every morning. For the last several days, we have had our Dobbie inside because of the weather. It is not as easy to get... Read more
