Thursday, August 02, 2018      14 comments

The other day I took out my passport and could hardly believe the round moon face in that photo. It was about 10 years ago, and the first time in my life I'd put on weight (other than pregnancy weight). I noticed that the passport expired a fe... Read more

My doc said to start back with a short walk. Although I was tempted to do a longer one, your responses on my last blog kindly advised me to take it easy. I did. It's not just the foot I'm healing, but the sprained hip. So, it's a bit complic... Read more

The Only Way I'll Succeed is by Food Tracking
Friday, July 27, 2018      20 comments

It has become more and more apparent to me, as I tighten up my regimen, that I am a habit eater. Since I've kicked other habits, there's no reason I can't do this one as well. And I've resisted tracking, but whenever I do it, it clearly gu... Read more

I was wondering if soy is the huge boogey man (woman) that it was once thought to be, with it being linked to estrogen and breast cancer. I've avoided it for awhile now, but find some things that contain soy and not sure what's up these d... Read more
