Tomorrow begins a new work project for me that takes me WAY out of my comfort zone. Not sure if I'll last a day, week, month or year, but it'll take me a minute to figure out how to do SP daily. At least to some extent. I may not be able to r... Read more

Tuesday, October 04, 2016      10 comments

Last night, before bedtime, an email surprise came in. It is my Great Wall Badge from Fitbit; I've walked 5500 miles. Yes, I'm proud. Okay, today's lunch at Red Lobster will be moderate, not all you can eat shrimp. (although I'm sorely t... Read more
I've Graduated to Using Deep Greens
Monday, October 03, 2016      10 comments

I never really paid attention to the type of lettuce I was using for myriad salads. Even though I'd read about the nutrients in kale, chard, and similar others, I had a habit of just using iceberg. Well, for awhile now, I've been using co... Read more

Wednesday, September 28, 2016      12 comments

I'm being such a good girl (smiling), but the scale refuses to acknowledge it. But I can see several good changes in my body, including comments from others, and it's encouraging. So, who cares about the scale? Doing great without sugar, less... Read more
September Has Been About Rewiring My Brain
Tuesday, September 27, 2016      11 comments

I set a goal of five pounds gone in September. I've gotten rid of four. But, more importantly, I've retrained my brain to realize that I'm not going to be eating as much as I have always eaten. It has taken a lot of conscious restructuring to... Read more

Sunday, September 25, 2016      6 comments

I've done what I can to help influence two loved ones, but to no avail. It is very stressful to see them get sicker as they pay no attention to healthy choices. Very sad. Have a fun weekend.... Read more
