40 Percent of Americans Eat Fast Food Daily?
Wednesday, October 03, 2018      21 comments

Heard this on the news this morning. How do they conclude that without actually sampling the entire population. I also heard that humans are hard-wired for laziness, which at one point in evolution, was a useful tool. But now detrimental.... Read more
Cleaned Carpets Instead of Zumba Class, One Year Gym Anniversary, Misc.
Tuesday, October 02, 2018      13 comments

I've been waiting for a cooler morning to attempt cleaning carpets. They were a bit overdue because of this year's hip sprain pain since March. The carpet cleaner is a semi-beast to push around that was one of my best investments awhile ago, a... Read more
Zumba, Air Show/Harry, Misc.
Monday, October 01, 2018      17 comments

Several months ago, when I first got plantar fasciitis in right foot, I gave up doing 20,000 steps a day (doing one walk a day now instead of two), and I also gave up Zumba. I don't love it, but I do have some fun and am thinking of trying a Zu... Read more
Food Tracking, Weekly Weigh-Ins, Pumpkin, Harry and the Blue Angels
Sunday, September 30, 2018      18 comments

I have been consistently tracking food intake for about two months now. Except for the recent endless shrimp feast. (smiling) It really is a wonderful tool in making me aware of what's going into my pie-hole. Speaking of pie, I recently... Read more
The Angels Scare My Elderly Cat Prince Harry
Friday, September 28, 2018      24 comments

It's that time of year again when the Blue Angels soar overhead for the 3-day air show starting today. Yesterday they practiced and my dear little fur baby has had 14 years of going through the terror of hiding as the Angels sound like they wi... Read more
Surprised by the Calories in Pomegranates
Thursday, September 27, 2018      17 comments

I was as surprised to learn the number of calories in poms as I was when I learned about those in watermelon. Puzzled as to how those little flavorful seeds can possibly add up to 72 per pomegranate. I LOVE them and the store has a huge sale o... Read more
Too Bad I Forgot My Sunglasses
Tuesday, September 25, 2018      20 comments

I had to run an errand yesterday afternoon, and pulled out of the driveway lamenting that I'd forgotten my sunglasses. I go nowhere without them in this land of sunshine and glare while driving. But since it was a short distance to go, I figur... Read more
UH OH, HERE COMES PUMPKIN PIE SEASON
Monday, September 24, 2018      27 comments

A serious problem for pumpkin pie addicts. Like me. Last year, a water aerobics classmate and I were lamenting how much pumpkin pie we'd eaten. The only thing is, she was talking about pieces. I was talking about entire pies. Wi... Read more
I SURVIVED THE ENDLESS SHRIMP LUNCH TODAY AT RED LOBSTER
Saturday, September 22, 2018      22 comments

My friend was amazed that I had so much less than I have had in the past. Still more than most of you would have had, but a lot more restraint this time. It was fabulous. Since I am getting a lot of exercise these days, I'm not worried. ... Read more
UH OH! RED LOBSTER'S ENDLESS SHRIMP ANNUAL PROMO IS BACK
Wednesday, September 19, 2018      20 comments

Last year, the way I handled temptation was not to go to Endless Shrimp. I am a lover of shrimp and lose control no matter how hard I try. A friend wants to go this weekend. Yikes!... Read more
Slowly Adding Exercise Classes Back
Tuesday, September 18, 2018      16 comments

Yesterday I went to the strength training class that I had to give up while my sprain was healing. As long as I don't do the exercises that trigger my healing hip sprain, I'll be okay. There are two other women healing from the same thing. On... Read more
Ground Control to Major Tom. I Just Tracked the Intl. Space Station Across the Dawn Sky!
Sunday, September 16, 2018      21 comments

A few blogs ago, I wrote about signing up to be notified when the ISS would be visible above San Diego. This morning, I logged onto my computer and found this message: Time: Sun Sep 16 6:02 AM, Visible: 6 min, Max Height: 74°, Appears: 10°... Read more
It's Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature
Thursday, September 13, 2018      24 comments

I have one more acupuncture session left at the end of September, and my treatments have been a huge factor in my hip sprain and plantar healing. That said, at my last session, I asked my doc if I had correctly found two acupressure points, fro... Read more
Happiness Is.... Being Pain Free
Saturday, September 08, 2018      24 comments

First time since March that hip sprain and plantar foot have felt like healthy human body parts again. Woohoo. I'm thrilled and thankful. Have a fun weekend, friends.... Read more
I've Tried Again and Again, but Still don't like Tai Chi
Friday, September 07, 2018      20 comments

Why do I keep trying to make tai chi an acquired taste? I've tried it 4 different times, forcing myself to go to class as I'm always reading how beneficial it is. No matter how I try, it's just not for me. I'll stick to activities I enjoy... Read more
