Weigh in day
Wednesday, September 05, 2012      1 comments

Today I had one of my periodic appointments to check my weight and measurements for the research study I am participating in. I appreciate these, because the scale I have at home weighs at least ten pounds low. Knowing that, I can see how my w... Read more
Another lawn-mowing marathon...

Or at least it seemed that way. Speaking scientifically, there is a very high activation energy for me to get off my behind and get out there and mow. Once I am out there, I am always glad to be accomplishing something, plus burning some calor... Read more

Today I was babysitting for my church, when one of the kids screamed out, "It's a scorpion!" and two or three others chimed in in agreement. I hurried over to investigate, hoping it wasn't a scorpion, because I have never disposed of one before... Read more

I don't know why it is that I tend to eat more when a reasonably nutritious dinner is before me than when I scrounge for myself whatever I find in the fridge. If the dinner is there, neatly on the plate, I somehow seem to act as though I am ent... Read more
Latex allergy - of all things!
Thursday, August 30, 2012      1 comments

I always used to laugh to myself when I saw or heard anything about a latex allergy. I thought it was just nonsense - heck, I never had any problems. before yesterday I had some small injury and put on a bandaid. Yesterday I took it ... Read more

Well, we are returning from dropping off my daughter at college far, far away. Only now I have a new car, one with an automatic transmission. This means that my son, who seems to be allergic to a stick shift, is now able to share the driving, ... Read more
Road Trip
Saturday, August 18, 2012      2 comments

I have been on a loooong road trip, taking my daughter to college far away from home. This wouldn't have been quite so much a problem for me with healthy eating if it hadn't been for the fact that my older son didn't want to drive because the c... Read more
Too many sweets
Sunday, July 29, 2012      2 comments

There is a reason I don't normally keep ice cream in the house. Today I ate way, way, way too much. Not to mention M&Ms. Oh, well, I will do better tomorrow. Since the ice cream is gone, I can't help but do better in that area. :-)... Read more
Fewer pieces

I am proud of myself - I got pizza for dinner tonight while the kids and I are watching the Olympics - and I only had two pieces. Granted, they were large pieces, and probably way too many calories, but in the past I would have eaten at least f... Read more

Well, I got back to mowing the back yard today. Because it hasn't rained much, the parts I had relatively recently mowed didn't need it today, but the parts I hadn't mowed recently were pretty bad. I think I got a pretty good workout, for me, ... Read more
New Scale
Friday, July 20, 2012      3 comments

So I bought a new scale for cheap from an online site. The reason I bought a new one was because I got tired of the old one consistently weighing everyone about ten pounds lighter than his/her actual weight. Of course, knowing that, you could ... Read more

Frustration! I had been doing pretty well maintaining over the long term a ten pound weight loss. Now, I need to lose much more than that for my health, but at least I wasn't gaining and I was feeling good about that. Then I signed up for... Read more
Not an inspiration

Last Saturday I participated in a cardio tennis class taught by someone I have known for years - a really nice guy. Unfortunately for me, of the eight people in the class, five were very good - two or three of them were extremely good, two were... Read more
Car/Weight Loss Study

I can't believe it - I was just in the middle of a long blog post, and I accidentally hit a key - I think it was either the 'control' key or maybe the caps lock. Whatever it was, it deleted my entire post. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr... Well, I had wr... Read more

Well, we tested the car, and, sure enough, if the 'lock' button has been pushed twice, it is impossible to open the car from the inside. This is, to my mind, very dangerous. Tragedy could have happened yesterday just because of this. I need t... Read more
