Survived Yesterday's Extreme Stress
Tuesday, September 13, 2016      7 comments

Literally from dawn to dusk, I was helping from long distance (by phone and texts) with a relative in extreme distress and a potentially life-threatening situation. Can't go into details here, but suffice it to say, my adrenaline was pumping bi... Read more
Frustration, NSV, Food Tracking and Misc.
Monday, September 12, 2016      9 comments

I had a goal of 5 lbs lost in September. After doing all the right things, the scale is not moving. However, clothes are fitting looser, which is a good sign. I realized, after seeing my Ninja pic that I posted here on SP, that I sometimes we... Read more

I run out of things to say in blogs, but still want to check in to say hello. Wishing all a wonderful day.... Read more
Hiking Poles
Tuesday, September 06, 2016      9 comments

Every few years I go through this; I read about how they burn more calories when walking and I buy some. I always intend to use them during my regular walks, then realize how ridiculous it looks along the road. Not that I mind looking ridiculo... Read more
Sad for My Friend, Huge Prayer Candle, Misc.
Sunday, September 04, 2016      10 comments

My dear friend's mother died last week as a result of nursing home abuse and neglect. My friend had gotten a lawyer and kept all of the evidence along the way, and it is indeed a criminal case, per the attorney. The young police officer who we... Read more
Post Office Head-Scratcher, Misc
Friday, September 02, 2016      9 comments

The other day I went to the post office and told the rep at the checkout that I wanted the package to get there by Saturday. I spent a fortune on priority mail which is two-day service. As I'm paying a king's ransom, he says, "It's not guarant... Read more
Goal for September
Thursday, September 01, 2016      10 comments

Can it possibly be September already? Yesterday I pondered how much weight I plan to lose this month. At first I was going for a bigger number, but soon realized that I have to be realistic. Since I've been a slow loser, it's unlikely that I'... Read more
Weigh-In After Months (!), Ridiculous Things I Sometimes Tell Myself, Misc.
Wednesday, August 31, 2016      11 comments

I am going in the right direction; my clothes are fitting looser. Haven't weighed for several months and decided that I'm going to do so weekly. Starting today. Am pleased with the number on the scale this morning, and will continue my new-f... Read more
The "Habit" of Eating, Posted Pics, Misc.
Tuesday, August 30, 2016      10 comments

I heard the tail end of a radio segment by Dr. Sanjay Gupta who was saying that eating is a habit. Something clicked inside my brain; yes, an "aha" moment. Stated that way, I realized that I have kicked other habits and can surely kick this ea... Read more
Chromium & Sugar Cravings
Monday, August 29, 2016      11 comments

It really does work wonders for me. I'd been off sugar for quite awhile, but relapsed badly about a month ago. This past week, getting back in the right direction has been greatly helped with chromium. Amazing. Still tracking my food. N... Read more
TRIED CURRY FOR THE FIRST TIME
Sunday, August 28, 2016      9 comments

It was okay. Maybe an acquired taste. We'll see. Wasn't able to do my lake walk. Pain level was high, and I couldn't push myself through it. I hate to cancel commitments and disappoint friends. Took pics of my mature yards (3 years... Read more
Golden (Not Red) Raspberries
Saturday, August 27, 2016      8 comments

I was pretty surprised to see a different color raspberry and should have tried them. But I'm loyal to red raspberries. (smiling) Has anyone tried golden? Maybe next time I see them, I'll satisfy my curiosity. Unfortunately, I've eaten... Read more
Food Tracking, Mattress Success, Misc.
Friday, August 26, 2016      12 comments

For so long, I've resisted tracking my food intake. Not only being lazy, but afraid to see the actual daily number of calories I'd been ingesting. (smiling) However, this week's consistent logging in and tracking shows me how the number helps ... Read more
Sunscreen That Smells Like Fried Chicken
Thursday, August 25, 2016      10 comments

It's been in the news (and on the internet) that KFC has come out with a sunscreen that smells like fried chicken. I haven't looked into it further, so maybe it's a joke or a marketing tool. Because who would create such a thing and who would... Read more
