Nail Contest Ends, Hair Roots, Food Tracking, Misc.
Monday, September 04, 2017      8 comments

Here's an update on some of the topics I'd tossed out in the last few weeks. I was having a personal, fun contest to see how long I could grow my nails. I made it to one inch and then one broke so I trimmed them all. Have to admit that they r... Read more
A/C Conks Out During 108 degree Temps, Worried about Harry
Sunday, September 03, 2017      8 comments

Up at 2 a.m. researching how to keep a cat cooler. He's 13.5 years, so I'm worried; it's been 88 degrees in here for over 24 hours now. I had the a/c tuned up and ready for summer. So I thought it was fine.... Read more
I Guess I Miss My Old Bad Habit
Saturday, September 02, 2017      12 comments

A few weeks ago, I began a new phase in this journey. Thanks to food tracking, I discovered that I am a habit eater. So I've been working to break the habit. But as crazy as this sounds, even though I am doing so much better, I miss my ... Read more

Record breaking temps, but compared with what's happening to those suffering in TX, I'm not complaining. Wishing all a happy, healthy holiday weekend.... Read more
The Following Quote Turned my Head Around About Cheese
Thursday, August 31, 2017      11 comments

For a long time now, I have tried to minimize my cheese intake. Suffice it to say, I eat way too much. I'm doing better, but still have a long way to go. Recently, I stumbled upon the following quote that finally made me sit up and take... Read more
Huge Revelation from Food Tracking Has Rocked My World
Wednesday, August 30, 2017      13 comments

When I told a friend about the following, the response was, "No way can that be true." Friends, it is indeed true and hard to admit to myself, let alone others. I'm into my fourth week of food tracking and it has literally changed my life ... Read more
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
