Friday, March 06, 2020      21 comments

Yesterday, after making some stops, I sat in the parking lot. Recuperating from a cold, not feeling my best, I suddenly thought of the fast food place across the street with its popular breakfast meals. What would it hurt once in awhile, I tho... Read more
Anniversary of the Hula Hoop
Thursday, March 05, 2020      22 comments

Today's date in 1963, the hula hoop was patented. Where is mine? In the garage. It's a special one with additional challenges when you hula. However, my hip hasn't felt like hooping in a long time. Maybe one of these days when the pain is 1... Read more

RANDOM THOUGHTS
Tuesday, March 03, 2020      16 comments

As far as yesterday's blog about weight loss, that's the most I've lost in one week in a very long time. I doubt if it's just less salt for the past week, but a combination of things like no sugar and having this cold. Whatever it is, I'm exci... Read more
4 LBS DOWN AND I'M THRILLED

A week ago I started my March goal early - less salt. Today I was shocked to see the number on the scale and redid it several times. Yes, 4 lbs. down. You bet I'm excited. Day 2 of this awful cold, but compared to what some of my SP frie... Read more
I FEEL SO IRISH DURING MARCH
Sunday, March 01, 2020      20 comments

I began giving out clover goodies a couple of weeks ago, feeling that Irish feeling ready to surge for March. Yes, I think I DO have Irish in my background. Hard to say, but rumor has it that my bio dad was. Never met the guy, nor have seen a... Read more
I Didn't Know What Hit Me
Saturday, February 29, 2020      20 comments

This morning I was getting ready to leave the parking spot at the grocery store when I got hit from behind. Not a big bump, fortunately, he was going slowly. But any unexpected bump makes you disoriented for a second, like, why is my car movin... Read more
Just Curious...Are you nervous about the Corona virus?
Friday, February 28, 2020      29 comments

It's really hard to tell if it is mainly hype and unnecessarily creating fear, or a tidal wave danger. As for me, I know that the flu virus kills a lot of people every year, and now here is another strain. All I can do is continue to do my usu... Read more
STARTING MARCH GOAL TODAY
Wednesday, February 26, 2020      20 comments

Next goal is less salt. I don't overdo usually, but lately haven't done that well. I love salty stuff and can escalate easily. Today is the first day of less (not cutting it out completely) salt. Wishing all a wonderful day. "I lo... Read more

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

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
