Bacon, New Range, Miscellaneous
Wednesday, October 28, 2015      11 comments

Last week was the news coverage about cheese, and this week it's bacon. Wouldn't it be easier to just list what we CAN eat without getting sick? That would leave just a few things; yet, when I go to the zoo, the orangutans are happy eating th... Read more
Cheese is Being Called "Dairy Crack" in the News
Sunday, October 25, 2015      12 comments

So no wonder I've been so addicted to cheese for so long! I thought I was just using the word loosely, but in news reports yesterday and today, they went on at length about why and how cheese is so addictive. Wish I could relate the detail... Read more
My Favorite Grocery Store is Closing this Weekend
Saturday, October 24, 2015      7 comments

I feel like I'm losing my best friend - again. Went through this two years ago when Fresh and Easy's parent company, Tesco, went belly-up and almost closed. Then a buyer came in and kept it on life support for the past couple of years. Wh... Read more
Thankful for No Pneumonia this Year
Friday, October 23, 2015      8 comments

A couple of years ago, all of the stress from various major challenges reduced my immune system to zilch. Two years before that (4 years ago), I got lung infections four times in two years. Been working hard to rebuild my immune system and... Read more
Almost Let Go of My Fitbit for Good
Thursday, October 22, 2015      9 comments

Fitbit needed a new battery this morning, but I felt too lazy to replace it even though I have a supply right here at my desk. (How lazy can one get? smiling) I felt that I no longer need it, that it was fun, but I really just want to be untet... Read more

I Ate My Sadness Yesterday
Monday, October 19, 2015      10 comments

Not as bad as it could have been, but worse than usual. Just had a terribly sad day yesterday discovering the loss of my dear SP friend of seven years. Sure, I know better than to do emotional eating, but sometimes I just don't care. Ther... Read more
I AM CRYING FOR A DYING SP FRIEND (WHO HAS PROBABLY PASSED BY NOW)
Sunday, October 18, 2015      16 comments

I have been her spark friend since on here in 09. Her friend posted on 10/13 that she was in final transition and today is 10/18, so I think she has passed and I'm trying to verify. Nonetheless, I am crying as I write this. Her journey w... Read more
The Chubby Clown
Saturday, October 17, 2015      11 comments

My clown costume arrived yesterday and unfortunately "standard" size (one size fits most) is not my size but rather a second skin. Unfortunately, I gave away my other pretty clown costume and am now regretting it. (smiling) Should have ord... Read more
Same Food Item Can Vary in Calorie Count So Much - Subjective labeling
Friday, October 16, 2015      12 comments

I refuse to believe what I just saw during lunch. I treated myself to an 8-pack of CA sushi from Trader Joe's. As I ate, I casually glanced at the label. As with the pumpkin muffins of a few past blogs, I just couldn't believe my eyes. T... Read more

So, yes, I keep whining about the record high temperatures we are getting that is miserable. I have a/c, but it gives me a headache. To avoid the heat, I decided (yesterday and this morning) to get outside at sunrise to trim the bushes in my y... Read more
You Know You're In Trouble When... (yesterday's disastrous eating)
Tuesday, October 13, 2015      10 comments

...you stop tracking for the day because you can't bear to see the number of calories you've ingested. Yesterday was a disaster. I could give you reasons/excuses, but we all know what causes days like these. Fortunately, they are fewer a... Read more
The Pumpkin Muffins I Almost Bought
Monday, October 12, 2015      16 comments

I couldn't believe my eyes. After taking a sample of the pumpkin muffin in the store, I picked up a package and thought they looked pretty innocent to have one for breakfast during this holiday season. Finding the nutrition label, I though... Read more

Sunday, October 11, 2015      14 comments

I want to wish my Canadian Spfriends a wonderful Thanksgiving. As I've often mentioned in blogs, Canadians I've met are such happy, nice people. You must be doing something right up there. (smiling) In a recent blog, I mentioned that it w... Read more

Friday, October 09, 2015      10 comments

I have a serious "addiction" to pumpkin. And in October, Trader Joe's has so many things pumpkin, it's incredible. I've told myself that, if I go there to shop on Sunday, I'll be moderate. Is that possible? And Happy Birthday, John... Read more
