Monday, July 31, 2017      9 comments

It's super-daunting for me, for some mysterious reason. But I keep food tracking daily and am getting closer to successful completion than ever before. It will be an important tool as I transition from just concentrating on making healthier ch... Read more
HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU FORGET A BABY LOCKED IN A HOT CAR?
Sunday, July 30, 2017      7 comments

Of all the human behavior I can understand at least a little, this is not one of them. I remember hectic times raising kids. Very difficult times. Distracted times. But "where's the baby" was like breathing. Knowing where baby is seems to b... Read more
"Some Intense Workouts Can Lead to Life Threatening Conditions"
Saturday, July 29, 2017      10 comments

This headline was not only in an article this morning, but also in the news all week. For a long time, I've had a personal belief that the human body is not made to endure the rigors of extreme physical exercising. Throughout my years on S... Read more
Rest in Peace, Sweet Charlie Gard
Friday, July 28, 2017      8 comments

I remember the hope-upon-hope of a young parent who believes that something will conquer physical problems for our babies. My heart has been breaking, watching them fight for possible solutions. I was there at one time; you truly feel there is... Read more
Drs. Claim that Statins Have Gotten a Bad Rap
Wednesday, July 26, 2017      8 comments

Anyone who has dealt with others on statins are familiar with the potential dangers and side effects. They are serious. I just read an article with docs saying that those are bogus facts and fake news. You know, there is very little... Read more
"Caffeine Is My Cardio"
Monday, July 24, 2017      9 comments

This was the marketing motto painted on the window of a nearby coffee shop. It made me think about all of the caffeine-sensitive issues I've had over coffee and caffeine. I've stopped the battle in trying to give it up completely, but have bee... Read more
Upcoming Solar Eclipse, Purchase I Made Today & Was Told "No One Uses Those Anymore"
Sunday, July 23, 2017      7 comments

I'm interested in the eclipse, but won't make the effort to get the correct eye ware to prevent damage. So I'm going to find the website that is going to film it in real time and watch online. I know, not really the same experience, but it's t... Read more

Friday, July 21, 2017      9 comments

I often blog about my distress over a relative with diabetes and his journey from caring to not caring to caring again. But sometimes you don't get second chances. I hope he does. This week presented some kidney problems and at least he w... Read more
Big Pharma- The Legal Drug Pusher
Thursday, July 20, 2017      15 comments

The news coverage lately has been almost non-stop about the massive numbers of people addicted to opioids and high numbers overdosing. Yet, none of these mention who is to blame for prescribing the drugs in the first place. Is it just acci... Read more
Why I Had to Stop Feeding My Outdoor Birds
Wednesday, July 19, 2017      10 comments

For the past few months, I've taken such delight in feeding birds outside. At first, I tried putting the seed in feeders, but no one came to eat. So I wound up putting the seed on the patio and they'd flock around daily to feast. Last wee... Read more
Why I'm Getting Fed Up w/ My Fitbit
Tuesday, July 18, 2017      11 comments

Yes, I've totally loved and enjoyed my FB for a few years now. However, it is because I'm so addicted to it that I really want to let it go soon. I don't like feeling that my walks don't count unless they earn FB mileage toward meaningle... Read more

Monday, July 17, 2017      7 comments

Isn't this a fun date? (smiling) During my morning walk, I heard a radio report about forest bathing. It's something that is prescribed through some insurance plans and, according to the commentator, is a combination of hiking and meditation ... Read more

Lots of freebies advertised for celebrating today. Fortunately, ice cream has never been at the top of my list. I can take it or leave it. Wishing all a wonderful day.... Read more
Sometimes I'm Afraid to Track My Food
Saturday, July 15, 2017      11 comments

Because I know I've been super-hungry today, I logged off before entering my food for the day. I'm no coward, but I'm not in the mood to see the numbers of calories today. Fortunately, I moved around sufficiently to not be a total horror of in... Read more
Some Stress Relief from Relative's Diabetes Redirection
Friday, July 14, 2017      8 comments

I've blogged several times about the sadness and stress caused by a relative neglecting his health. About three years ago, after the shock of having the diabetes diagnosis, he took very good care of himself. But over the past year or so, I've ... Read more
