"In 10 Years, it is Estimated that 50 percent of Americans will be Obese"
Monday, February 17, 2020      8 comments

I heard this conjecture the other day, based on the rate we are currently increasing in obesity. Not a happy thought, for sure. I'll just keep eating right, exercising and trying my best not to become part of the statistic. Recently I rea... Read more

The Scale LOVES me Today
Friday, February 14, 2020      24 comments

I've gone from totally ignoring the scale for a long time, to agreeing (with myself) to check in every couple of weeks. Today was a lovely sight. Going down ever so slowly, but I'll take it. My body is happy where it's at and does not want to... Read more

Just a quick blog as I'm still exhaling with relief and will be decompressing now. All went well with the procedure for my family member. Web was dilated and all looks okay. One small biopsy results back next week, but doc told him it's a com... Read more
Stress Effects Sugar Cravings
Wednesday, February 12, 2020      22 comments

It is no accident that after 1.5 months sugar free with no cravings, last night I just had to have a single scoop vanilla cone. And the more I allowed myself to think about it, the closer I came to getting my keys to go get one. I am aware... Read more
Acupuncture and Update on Family Member
Tuesday, February 11, 2020      19 comments

Yesterday's acupuncture session turned out even more wonderful than usual. Doc was surprised at how my body has healed since seeing me last November. I will only have to go every 2-3 weeks instead of weekly. Plus, the session wasn't intense a... Read more

Sunday, February 09, 2020      17 comments

The other day I heard it estimated that about 25 percent of pet owners are overwhelmed by the high cost of vet care for their pets. Many either abandon their furry friends or surrender them to the Humane Society. The gist of it was that more p... Read more

Back to Acupuncture Next Week
Thursday, February 06, 2020      18 comments

Most SP friends know I have a wonderful acupuncturist who helped me last year in healing my hip sprain. It's about 80 percent better, but still needs a bit more care. So I go back on Monday and want to heal the rest. Meanwhile, the mattress s... Read more

Grocery Bill is a Third Less Now
Tuesday, February 04, 2020      19 comments

Since starting the apple cider vinegar each day, it has really decreased my appetite and that, of course, has made me eat less. A week or so ago I started to notice that my grocery bill has shrunk. Quite a nice surprise. Doing great with the ... Read more
