Have I Told You Lately That I Love....
Friday, December 28, 2018      15 comments

….the feeling of being without added sugar for 17 days now? It's an amazing feeling. Have done this before, but each time I went back to sugar thinking "now I can handle it moderately." But each time, I did more and more. Yup, just like any ... Read more
What Went Up, Must Come Down
Thursday, December 27, 2018      27 comments

I decorated early (November 15), so I'm ready to move on. I'm dismantling in stages, just like I did when I put everything up. That's the hard part about doing so much, it's a LOT of work. But it was fun and worth it. A lot like losing w... Read more

Trying to Remember to Savor Those First Three Bites
Saturday, December 22, 2018      22 comments

I've read so many times how our taste buds are sharpest with the first three bites. After that, we are just eating and not really tasting the way we did those three bites. Funny, I thought I was savoring the whole meal! (smiling) It's hard to... Read more
I Know I Should, but I Don't Count Fruit as Sugar
Friday, December 21, 2018      21 comments

I'm thrilled when I control "bad" sugars, and totally forget that fruit has high sugar content as well. But I love it and so does my body, so that's about it for now. Wishing all a wonderful day. ... Read more
Xmas Miracle (Kinda), Keto Smart (free Kindle book) 10 lbs of Oranges
Thursday, December 20, 2018      19 comments

I've been struggling with hip pain for a couple of years now. No injury, no pulls, nothing preceded it. It all started with a mattress, a very good mattress. But it wasn't right for me. Three years and three mattresses later, this past March... Read more
Gym and Santa Suit Dilemmas
Wednesday, December 19, 2018      18 comments

Yes, I have been ambivalent about returning to the gym. On one hand, I miss some of the classes (have resigned myself to no pool due to chlorine sensitivity), and on the other, I don't like the gym. But just as I was getting to the point that ... Read more
I Added More Lights, I'm Wearing More Bells, But Still Have That Empty Hole in My Heart
Tuesday, December 18, 2018      21 comments

I didn't expect that all of the decorations would be a magic trick to erase the pain of so much loss; sometimes it does the opposite and makes me feel sadder. But sadness is not a place I visit for long, and all of these lights and bells... Read more
I'm Tempted to Call This "At Goal"
Monday, December 17, 2018      17 comments

Yes, I'm tired of constant awareness of calories in and calories burned. Tired of thinking of numbers to be reached to be at goal weight. I recently raised my goal to a higher weight, but now I'm thinking of telling myself that I'm done. ... Read more
My Intended Topic is Cancelled Upon Just Getting Word that a Friend has Bladder Cancer
Sunday, December 16, 2018      16 comments

There's nothing like this kind of news to remind us of the fragility of life, as if we need to be reminded. The topic I intended to write about is so silly compared to my friend's news that really knocked my socks off an hour ago. She's been a ... Read more

Friday, December 14, 2018      23 comments

There are some things that correlate so clearly, that they are reminders in and of themselves to do better. Not enough water - tiredness, general feeling of malaise Not food tracking - an immediate, mental "free for all" in eating w/no tr... Read more
Financial Health Correlates with Physical Health?
Thursday, December 13, 2018      17 comments

I read an article yesterday about how American credit card debt has reached a record high of over one trillion dollars. It is easy to see how worrying about our finances causes stress that affects out health. One in four people don't even have... Read more

Sunday, December 09, 2018      18 comments

The last couple of days, I have put up many types of yard lights. Got new solar lights for front and back yards, along with neon xmas shapes, and twinkly ones. They look so pretty and I'll try to take pics during the next coming weeks and post... Read more
I'm A Rainy Day People Person
Thursday, December 06, 2018      22 comments

So thrilled with the second day in a row of much-needed rain with all of those wonderful negative ions we need. "Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Think mou... Read more
