Another Lb Down, Vet Visit Today, Misc.
Friday, March 22, 2019      21 comments

So, it's been three weeks since I kicked all of my bad carbs to the curb (sugar, rice, pasta, bread, sugary fruit), and I'm down 9 lbs. Feeling great. No cravings anymore. No night eating. No grazing all day long. It's like a miracle. ... Read more
My First DELISH Zoodles Lunch
Wednesday, March 20, 2019      24 comments

Last week, after much internal debate, I got a spiralizer from Amazon. It's inexpensive ($10) because I just didn't know if I would use it. You know how it is; you want to try something new and then it sits around collecting dust. (smiling) ... Read more
Yet Another Friend's Terminal News
Tuesday, March 19, 2019      23 comments

It's getting to the point that I don't want to run into any other friends I haven't seen in awhile and catch up on their news. Because yesterday was a sad day as I did run into someone I haven't seen in a bit. Another person who was alwa... Read more
2 Minutes a Day for 2 Weeks = 1 inch off waist?
Monday, March 18, 2019      19 comments

This is what I recently read about hula hooping. So I went and dug mine out yesterday; made myself laugh as I wondered how many calories I was burning by picking it off the floor try after try. (smiling) Got my zoodle spiralizer yesterday,... Read more
A Shocking Encounter
Sunday, March 17, 2019      17 comments

I was leaving a store last week, and she was coming in. We nearly bumped carts and exclaimed in surprise at seeing each other. During my year at the gym (which ended in October since I don't enjoy the gym), this lady was in my strength trainin... Read more
My Nemesis Foods List (clarifying yesterday's blog)
Saturday, March 16, 2019      15 comments

Several asked me what carbs I cut out. Bread, pasta, sugar, rice, potatoes, and sugary fruit. After two weeks, I feel a lot better. This is just the beginning of my new adventure. (smiling) Well, here's to a fun day for everyone. Enjoy... Read more
Two Weeks Left Town and Took 8 Lbs With It
Friday, March 15, 2019      18 comments

The farther I get from carbs, the more clear it becomes that my carb intake should have been in Ripley's Believe it Or Else. (smiling) I kid you not. For the first time in my life, I have the bull by the horns thanks to a great friend I've ado... Read more
Weighing with No Clothes On
Tuesday, March 05, 2019      26 comments

Last Tuesday I freaked out since I hadn't used the scale in six months and they weighed me before my acupuncture session. I couldn't believe the number since my clothes had been fitting fine. Skip ahead to this morning on the scale, the fi... Read more
Time Change Coming, War on Carbs, 3 lbs Down
Monday, March 04, 2019      22 comments

I was so surprised to learn that it is already time "spring ahead" this coming weekend. I love longer daylight and hope they decide to keep it one way or the other. It's insane to keep adjusting the clocks and there's no real need for it anywa... Read more
Sunday Musings
Sunday, March 03, 2019      20 comments

Yesterday I went to a naturapathic doc at a nearby teaching university. The costs are lower since there are students involved as well as the doc. As with everything else, including the medical field, I don't just blindly follow advice. I do my... Read more
Mega-Gratitude for Your Kind and Caring Responses Yesterday
Friday, March 01, 2019      24 comments

Wow, if I ever had doubts about the power of blogging, I no longer do. Once I wrote about it yesterday, it helped me stay in my head with logic overcoming that flood of emotions that was tidal-waving me. Plus, getting better sleep helped with ... Read more
My Heart is Breaking
Thursday, February 28, 2019      38 comments

I’m just writing this to help myself sort all this out. My logic and emotions are battling each other as to what to do next. Realistically, I have my own medical needs that require financial commitment, so to spend a lot of money for bloodwork... Read more
Acupuncture, Decline of Cat Health, Biofreeze, Scale Shocker
Tuesday, February 26, 2019      20 comments

It's been one of those days. Early this morning, I found that an eagle nest I've been watching had its second new eaglet die and witnessed a very touching burial and "funeral" by ma and pa eagle. Then I researched some of Harry's current c... Read more
My Senior Cat is Keeping Me Up at Night
Sunday, February 24, 2019      19 comments

And I'm plum exhausted. Yes, he's nocturnal, but I've never had this all-night behavior where he feels that I should be awake with him and shower him with affection. Sure, I love this elderly (he'll be 15 on April 29) rascal, but I also love m... Read more
