Did I Drink Too Much Water Yesterday?
Wednesday, June 27, 2018      19 comments

I stopped counting at 12 8-oz glasses of water. Wondering if that's too much. Have a happy, healthy day, friends.... Read more
Researching How to Make Ice Cream (low cal, of course) from Over-Ripe Bananas
Tuesday, June 26, 2018      16 comments

I got a great deal on a big bunch of bananas and don't want to waste them. I don't remember who, but a SP's recent blog mentioned that she made ice cream and it was delish. Low cal, of course. I'm going to research how many ice cubes, bananas... Read more
Some Honest Blogs Are Hard to Write
Monday, June 25, 2018      20 comments

Like the one I wrote yesterday. I didn't want to admit it, but writing it helped me to get back on the right foot today. Thanks to all for your helpful responses. Plantar foot is slowly healing. Interesting that the articles I've read ab... Read more

The Alaskan Bears Are Coming Out of Hibernation
Friday, June 22, 2018      20 comments

Saw the rangers' presentation the other day and it was fascinating. The bears are coming out of hibernation and have lost 1/3 of their body weight during that time. Maybe that's a new diet secret I should try? (smiling) Here's the link if... Read more
R.I.P. Sweet Koko the Gorilla
Thursday, June 21, 2018      25 comments

Born July 4, 1971, Koko learned to communicate with sign language. I love gorillas and have followed her life with interest and affection. If you are unfamiliar with her, you will smile at the numerous video clips of her interactions. She was... Read more
Is the Ceiling Leaking Raindrops onto My Exercise Mat?
Wednesday, June 20, 2018      17 comments

Nope. Those are actually drops of my sweat, which is astounding because I've never been a sweater during exercise. Which means I've never worked this hard until this class. It really does kick my butt. Plantar fasciitis in right foot i... Read more
I Dreamt I Could Fit both Hands Around My Waist!
Sunday, June 17, 2018      21 comments

Of course, that would mean it was about 5 inches in circumference. (smiling) I remember being amazed that I had such a tiny waist in the dream. I think this stems from seeing progress in my exercise classes and also because I am food tracking... Read more
I STILL DOUBLE-KNOT MY SHOES
Thursday, June 14, 2018      25 comments

I smiled as I tied my running shoes this morning because I always learned that double-knotting prevents the laces from coming undone. It's funny how ingrained some habits are. Which lead me to the thought of how ingrained eating habits are... Read more
My Reality Check Has Bounced
Wednesday, June 13, 2018      17 comments

Life is so bizarre and mine has always been theater of the absurd. But it has honed my sense of humor and I love that song that says it all for me, "I've always been crazy, but it's kept me from going insane." Will leave it at that. Trust me,... Read more
The Upside of a Stressful Day. Special Shout-Out to My Guardian Angel.
Tuesday, June 12, 2018      18 comments

One thing is for sure about a stressful day - it changes the way I eat and the habits I partake in almost daily. So it gives my brain different signals and reinforces the good track I've been on. Yesterday's car adventures made it an expen... Read more
YAY, ANOTHER BUMP IN THE ROAD - CAR TROUBLE (SAID SARCASTICALLY)
Sunday, June 10, 2018      22 comments

Okay, first the positives. I did not conk out on the road going to or coming from the gym yesterday when my "check oil" light remained on. Some cars' engines shut down immediately to prevent further damage and, of course, shutting down can mea... Read more
I CONQUERED THE BIGGEST PHOBIA OF MY LIFE ABOUT THREE WEEKS AGO (I write this with so much pride)
Saturday, June 09, 2018      20 comments

I was raised by parents who took care of my health, including my teeth. I carried that value into my adulthood until I had some incredibly horrific dental experiences that paralyzed me with fear. As we know, fear is one of those feelings... Read more
Fitbit No More. Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow
Friday, June 08, 2018      23 comments

The past couple of years have been fun with fitbit, and I've enjoyed earning virtual rewards for miles walked. However, I decided yesterday that I don't need/want it anymore. At some point, I felt that if I didn't have the fb on, the walk didn... Read more
Why NSV's Sometimes Backfire for Me
Thursday, June 07, 2018      15 comments

Last October, I joined a gym. Which is funny because I'm not a gym person; that is, I'm not crazy about going inside to do classes or equipment. And still debating about pool chlorine. I like outside walking and biking. I never liked the impe... Read more
