Friday, February 09, 2018      13 comments

First of all, here's my disclaimer. Not all of the three thoughts listed below are present all of the time. And I do know the counterpoints to all of them. But when I recently took a personal inventory on what thoughts pop up most frequently ... Read more
Happy Birthday to Me and My Dear Grandma
Thursday, February 08, 2018      19 comments

Even after all these years, I reach out to hug her and miss her so much. Love you, grandma. Was born on her birthday and named after her. I am almost giddy with joy and amazement that I am still here after the life I've had. Although man... Read more
$3.43 Gal Gas, Nuts, Deli Girl Forces Reality on Me, Tai Chi, Coffee & Cancer
Tuesday, February 06, 2018      14 comments

Gas will be up to $4. gallon by summer, it's predicted by those in the know. Yesterday's fill-up was painful at the price above. Living in SoCal is getting too expensive in so many ways. I continue to research elsewhere. Yesterday I boug... Read more
Last Night I Dreamt I Had Stage 4 Lung Cancer
Monday, February 05, 2018      10 comments

I wasn't panicked in the dream; I had my first chemo treatment in a jar that I was carrying around with me while asking cancer survivors what they thought of natural treatments as opposed to traditional. Each person responded that it was a pers... Read more
Ollolai, Italy - Houses for Sale for $1 (yes, that's ONE DOLLAR)
Saturday, February 03, 2018      10 comments

Admittedly, years ago I saw the film "Under the Tuscan Sun" and I was immediately in love with the idea of relocating and creating a new life in a foreign land. Of course, when I read the book and facts that were quite different than those in t... Read more
I WAS SO NUTRITION IGNORANT BEFORE SPARKPEOPLE
Friday, February 02, 2018      14 comments

I often marvel that, prior to my nine years here on SP, I knew virtually nothing about good nutrition. And what little I did know was incorrect. How could I have been so ignorant despite having college degrees and being a smart person? Fo... Read more
Exercise Can Become Too Much of a Good Thing
Thursday, February 01, 2018      11 comments

I have never understood those who over-exercise. Until now. Yesterday I was an unstoppable machine. Walking, swimming, weight training class, etc. I can see how people sometimes become "addicted" to the endorphin buzz. It's quite an experie... Read more
WRITING THIS BLOG WHILE LOOKING AT THE BEAUTIFUL ECLIPSED MOON
Wednesday, January 31, 2018      12 comments

It's 6:30 a.m. and I've periodically checked the beautiful moon since 4 a.m. It's dramatic and powerful. Intense. Never ceases to amaze me when I look up into the dark sky to see celestial happenings. Yesterday's Zumba was a bust. This ... Read more
It's Too Early in the Year for a Heatwave
Monday, January 29, 2018      13 comments

Yes, it's hot hot hot. Not sure how long this will last, and no, I wouldn't want to be shoveling instead. But this is way too early for high temps. Exercised my brains out today, including a solo session at the pool to do my own aerobics.... Read more

Salt and Cheese Are My Two Main Saboteurs
Thursday, January 25, 2018      16 comments

I've been doing great with sugar and caffeine, but my cheese and salt intake are off the charts. As of today, I'm putting myself on restriction. I recently heard a MD on the radio talk about the various foods he helps people with; he said... Read more
Why I Celebrate my Birthday from Now Until End of February (Tribute to my funny cousin)
Wednesday, January 24, 2018      13 comments

I used to celebrate my birthday on the day I was born, which was also my grandma's birthday. I was named after her. Then, at some point, I started celebrating it the entire week of Feb. 8, but then extended it to the entire month of Feb. ... Read more

Sunday, January 21, 2018      10 comments

I feel as though I'm just catching up with this being the new year, but in reality we are almost to the end of January. I can tell this is going to be another year that flies by. Yesterday, for no reason at all, I smiled to think about my ... Read more
How I've Given Back to SparkPeople During my 9 Years Here
Friday, January 19, 2018      16 comments

Tomorrow is the official day when I joined SP nine years ago. It took me a week or so to come back and actually start using the site after signing up as I felt it was information overload, and that I probably wouldn't stay. (smiling) Since... Read more
