4 Cups of Coffee a Day - The Secret to Long Life?
Tuesday, August 29, 2017      8 comments

This was in the news today and was done by a study in Spain. Hmmm, guess who was paying for that "research." I am caffeine sensitive and have tried to give up my minimal coffee intake for awhile now. I've finally settled on allowing myse... Read more
Confession from a Recovering Habit Eater
Monday, August 28, 2017      8 comments

Up until a month ago, I frequently snacked while on SP. Now I don't. Proud of myself. That would be like an alcoholic showing up at an AA meeting with a beer in her purse. Wishing all a wonderful day. Thoughts and prayers for those in... Read more
Annoying New Sleep Pattern. Things Have Got to Change.
Sunday, August 27, 2017      9 comments

I awaken for bathroom, water, or whatever and then have a hard time getting back to sleep. Harry has started to wake me up at 3 a.m. Of course, I know all of the potential solutions and am trying everything. I've never had a problem getting g... Read more
Heatwave in SoCal
Saturday, August 26, 2017      9 comments

The heat is back and the a/c is on. I guess it could be much worse as I watch the news from TX. Wishing all a safe harbor during that storm. ... Read more
Harvey, Orchids (why don't my older ones reflower?), Misc.
Friday, August 25, 2017      8 comments

For all of those in the path of Harvey, please stay safe. I've just lit my special intention candle with that thought in mind. I've been on an orchid binge this week. I bought one very unique large one, and three mini orchids in assorted ... Read more
Flip Flops, Running Shoes, Lottery, and Misc. Thoughts
Thursday, August 24, 2017      10 comments

I often see people walking long distances in flip flops; how? That would kill my feet. I got new running shoes yesterday and had been wondering why my current shoes feel so blown-out after only three months. They usually last about six months... Read more
Why Does Beck Use the Word Diet?
Wednesday, August 23, 2017      10 comments

As I reread some of her books, I wonder why Judith Beck uses the word diet. Maybe that's a buzz word that most can connect easily with rather than something like "changing mental attitude toward eating regimen?" The scale has been going... Read more
I Had to Do It- Faced the Scale after Four Months (Yikes!)
Tuesday, August 22, 2017      9 comments

Since I've been doing great with food tracking, it made no sense for me not to have a starting weight. Up until I joined SP almost nine years ago (this coming January), I never even owned a scale. Didn't need one. (smiling) Yes, thin all my l... Read more
Satin Boots, Eclipse, and other Random Thoughts
Monday, August 21, 2017      8 comments

I went into the store for underwear, and as I was passing the shoe department, this pair of dark blue satin (with satin tie ribbons) ankle boots was screaming my name. Oh, I'll just try them on. What harm could it do? Well, they are the most ... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Food Tracking is Getting Easier & Reaping Rewards
Sunday, August 20, 2017      13 comments

I've been here for almost nine years and for that entire time have resisted food tracking. Foolish, for sure. Today is my 12th day and, wow, I've learned a ton about myself. As I wrote in my recent blog, I realized due to tracking that I'... Read more

Saturday, August 19, 2017      8 comments

If you have Amazon Prime, check this out if you are effected in any way by CFS. I'm not, but always interested in learning more about what's going on. As usual with these types of films, after viewing it I feel discouraged, disheartened, an... Read more
Silly Olden-Day Fashion Advice - Do you wear white after Labor Day?
Friday, August 18, 2017      8 comments

There are some things that stick with me from childhood, even though I know better. For example, I feel that since I live in a year-round sunny place, wearing white all year is fine. And when I do, I imagine that people will recoil in horror a... Read more
The Clarity that Resulted from Recent Blogging
Thursday, August 17, 2017      7 comments

A light went on the other day. Something so simple that was right before my eyes, but blogging brought it into focus. I blogged about the nail-growing contest I'm having with myself, and how I used to be a nail biter, but conquered the hab... Read more
My Take On Spark Points
Wednesday, August 16, 2017      6 comments

It's funny, I've always said that I was a kid who was never motivated by the gold star on top of the school homework paper. So when I joined SP many years ago, I thought spark points were silly. Who in the world would care about virtual reward... Read more
Beck's Green Book - 2200 calories, Daily Weighing, Planning
Tuesday, August 15, 2017      7 comments

The Beck green cover is The Complete Beck Diet for Life. Although it includes a bit more stuff, it is basically the same info as in the other two books. The mail brought this and the pink workbook. I opened the package and laughed. Not that ... Read more
