I've got breakfast covered pretty well -- it's easy to make hard boiled eggs and yogurt and have some bran wafers all ready for cream cheese. I have a seed mixture all ready to put on the yogurt. Lunch is a serving of homemade soup. I make... Read more

I started weight-lifting in November 2015 because my thighs had gotten so weak I could not propel myself out of a chair. I bought the New Rules of Lifting for women, printed the logs and off I started. Or so I thought. The first exercis... Read more
I wore a size 10 and still thought I was fat

For about 7 years, I lived in an area where women did not wear jeans. I know. Hard to believe that an article of clothing was scorned. I adapted and packed away my favorite pair and gave the others away. Didn't think about them for a long ti... Read more

No ... they won't be shared. My wrists gave up the good fight a long time ago. I stopped enjoying yoga classes because so many of them include too many downward dogs -- a painful pose for me. I always do better with a voice telling ... Read more
What a stubborn notch!

A couple weeks ago, I blogged that I was approaching the 150 pound notch on the scale in the fitness center. The following week my weight went up. Entirely my fault. Last week was a good week and as I stepped on the scale this morning, ... Read more

This summer has shown me a snack pattern I didn't realize I had. I'm a project manager by craft, so I spend a lot of time with a task list making sure the next person/company/event is ready to go. I'm dealing with an unplanned project righ... Read more

I got news this morning that someone who had caused a traumatic event in 1963 dropped dead from an aneurysm. I hope that most of their negative power over me left years ago (therapy does do miracles), but everyone once in awhile when I lo... Read more

Sunday, July 13, 2014      2 comments

When Molly Shannon was on Saturday Night Live, she had a recurring skit inspired by her own mother. Its byline was "I'm Sally O'Malley and I'm 50 years old and I like to kick." My daughter began calling me Sally because I had recently bega... Read more

I try to weigh myself weekly at the fitness center. They've got one of those scales where you first slide a weight to the 50 pound notch that's closest without going over your weight (sounds like The Price is Right). Today I discovered tha... Read more

Saturday, June 28, 2014      2 comments

I'm sitting here dithering and have already wasted an hour on FB. I'm in a putting off mode and very glad donuts are not in the house. I'd be adding wasted calories to wasted time. Some of the things I want to do today involve making phon... Read more

When it's time to move onto the next contractor
Monday, June 16, 2014      2 comments

Sometimes I think getting a recommendation from a friend for a contractor binds you to a relationship you wish you hadn't started. I'm living with at least 150 packed boxes, minimal clothing, a mattress and box springs, a folding table and ... Read more

Saturday, June 14, 2014      2 comments

Just moved recently and still waiting for the painters, so I'm keeping my stuff in boxes until the place is painted. I couldn't find my hot pot until yesterday. The label was too small to read. (You know when you're packing things, you think ... Read more
