Can Smiling Help Prevent Dementia?
Monday, February 24, 2020      24 comments

I recently read the article “Best Tips to Prevent Dementia from a Neuroscientist” (by Joshua Tresvalles) and most of the tips are what you would guess. (BTW, it is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S.) Have a consistent sleep schedule. ... Read more
The Food Tracker is My New BFF
Sunday, February 23, 2020      24 comments

For 11 years here on SP I resisted tracking food. Then, two months ago, I started daily food tracking and now can't go a day without it. It has been an invaluable tool and I can't believe what a bonehead I've been about doing it. (smiling) ... Read more

"Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken"
Thursday, February 20, 2020      19 comments

This was another light fragrance I found that has a catchy name. Did some shopping on Tuesday with b'day gift cards and some interesting stuff just called my name. (smiling) I was also celebrating my safe outcome from Sunday's firetruck scare.... Read more
"Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe"
Wednesday, February 19, 2020      16 comments

This is a lightly-fragranced perfume I saw yesterday when shopping with my b'day gift cards. Made me smile for obvious reasons. Re-injured my almost-healed hip sprain yesterday by getting up from my desk chair quickly and sideways; a pull ... Read more
National Wine Day
Tuesday, February 18, 2020      18 comments

Since I don't drink, I've turned it into a personal National Whine Day. But there's nothing to whine about at the moment, so I'll just feel lucky about that. (smiling) I've decided that I no longer need acupuncture, so that's one less app... Read more
"In 10 Years, it is Estimated that 50 percent of Americans will be Obese"
Monday, February 17, 2020      19 comments

I heard this conjecture the other day, based on the rate we are currently increasing in obesity. Not a happy thought, for sure. I'll just keep eating right, exercising and trying my best not to become part of the statistic. Recently I rea... Read more
The Speeding Firetruck Coming Straight Toward Me this Morning
Sunday, February 16, 2020      24 comments

I think I'll see this image in my mind's eye for awhile, and still trying to figure out how this happened. Having a perfect driving record (I'm not saying I'm perfect, but I do have nothing on my record), there are times like these I realize th... Read more

The Scale LOVES me Today
Friday, February 14, 2020      24 comments

I've gone from totally ignoring the scale for a long time, to agreeing (with myself) to check in every couple of weeks. Today was a lovely sight. Going down ever so slowly, but I'll take it. My body is happy where it's at and does not want to... Read more
Gratitude
Thursday, February 13, 2020      22 comments

Just a quick blog as I'm still exhaling with relief and will be decompressing now. All went well with the procedure for my family member. Web was dilated and all looks okay. One small biopsy results back next week, but doc told him it's a com... Read more
Stress Effects Sugar Cravings
Wednesday, February 12, 2020      22 comments

It is no accident that after 1.5 months sugar free with no cravings, last night I just had to have a single scoop vanilla cone. And the more I allowed myself to think about it, the closer I came to getting my keys to go get one. I am aware... Read more
Acupuncture and Update on Family Member
Tuesday, February 11, 2020      19 comments

Yesterday's acupuncture session turned out even more wonderful than usual. Doc was surprised at how my body has healed since seeing me last November. I will only have to go every 2-3 weeks instead of weekly. Plus, the session wasn't intense a... Read more
"Pet Poverty"
Sunday, February 09, 2020      17 comments

The other day I heard it estimated that about 25 percent of pet owners are overwhelmed by the high cost of vet care for their pets. Many either abandon their furry friends or surrender them to the Humane Society. The gist of it was that more p... Read more

Born on her day and named after her, I will celebrate the day in her honor. I miss you, dear GM! Wishing all a happy, healthy day. "I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal." J... Read more
