Since I've been very careful about what I'm eating, I have more money. Loading the grocery cart with junk is expensive. A Chicago Little League team is the national champion, and there was a parade to celebrate. How cool is that?! I ... Read more

The cake left over from my boss's birthday celebration is sitting in the refrigerator at work, and I didn't help myself to another piece. Victory!!! I'm still getting in my daily planks, and it's a lot easier when you wear shoes. Note to ... Read more

Several years ago, I bought a pair of slacks. When I tried them on in the store, I cried in the dressing room, because I was so thrilled that they fit. Today, they are down right baggy. At the gym, an extremely fit member commented to T... Read more

I'm not a real fan of air conditioning. On top of that, my heat is base board hot water, so I've never felt the need to spend a ton of money for central AC. I do have a good sized window unit that I haven't used all year. We're having a late ... Read more

I'm happy the car sat in the garage all day. I'm pleased I had all the ingredients I needed to make chili. The watermelon I bought tastes terrific! Sweet dreams everyone!!!!... Read more

I went to Jewel to do some grocery shopping, and there were two young women at the entrance collecting food for the hungry. They had a list of items that were needed for their food bank, and I took it into the store. First of all, I've never b... Read more

I'm happy I resisted the donuts at work. I feel so thrifty buying a really large seedless watermelon for only $2.98. This is only the second watermelon I purchased this season, and I plan to enjoy it. It will be a substitute for ice cream... Read more
Yikes!! There's a box of Krispy Kreme donuts in the office!

Since garbage food does not regularly make its way into the office, I shouldn't complain, but that fact is not going to stop me. When I went to toast my 100 calorie English muffin, I found a box filled with a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts staring a... Read more

The office was out of dish washing detergent. Since no one seemed motivated to replace it, I took a walk to Walgreen's at lunch. I'm talking downtown Chicago, so the walk was less then five minutes. Anyway, I got the Palmolive and didn't add ... Read more

I'm delighted that I didn't fall asleep at my desk at work today. It's getting darker earlier. Since there's not enough light to garden for a couple hours after work, I took my first walk in forever. Except for dodging a couple of skunks,... Read more

In my well-pressed workout gear, I spent 1 hour 40 minutes at the gym. I had a personal training session and wanted to beg for mercy, but I didn't. My T-shirt was drenched. While driving home, I'm very pleased I didn't make any stops ... Read more

Today was the first day of the rest of my life, and it was a good one. I ironed my sweats so I'm all set for the gym. At least my clothes look OK until I start dripping with perspiration. I must admit I was always a little jealous of peop... Read more

I made the Brazilian Fish Stew today. It was so flavorful that it would be hard to tell that I substituted cod for halibut. Making it was rather labor intensive, but it's good. Although it was overcast, the day was not at all unpleasant. ... Read more

I did something today I never do. I took a nap, and it was terrific. Today I got my Talbot's and Bath and Body Works gift cards. It's time to do some shopping!!! The TRX class was pretty intense, and we were all sweating. Got in som... Read more

Helped track down the owner of a lost kitty. She was very happy that we found Mittens. I have nearly all the ingredients I need to make Brazilian Fish Stew. I'll let you know how it turns out. I'm looking forward to getting my cash-b... Read more
