Monday, June 06, 2011      4 comments

As world historical events go, D-Day - June 6, 1944 - ranks up there as tops. It was, perhaps IS, important. Many of us have relatives who were there. No easy day, but an important one. news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/

Rewarded myself though no goal was met! (?!?) why?! :)
Sunday, May 29, 2011      9 comments

First: WHY? Ok, I didn't reach a big goal. In fact, for reasons I'm not sure I understand I've gained five pounds; I've been exercising regularly, in fact more than usual. I've been watching what I eat,...and here is one area where once ... Read more
Memorial Day in Numbers
Saturday, May 28, 2011      2 comments

Seems most people are more worried about how or what to eat on Memorial Day than they are concerned about the reason for the day.... Prove me wrong. Maybe a more appropriate way to observe the day would be to fast instead of picnic. CONFLIC... Read more

In a few days Memorial Day will be here again. And the fake government-issue 'observed Memorial Day' is on the real Memorial date this year becuase memorial Day happens to fall on a Monday. Out of the 3-day weekend what percentage of Americans... Read more
My observations ...In Week 4 -final week- of a bootcamp.
Monday, May 23, 2011      1 comments

Now in Week 4 of a bootcamp, I'm rather glad it's the last week. Following videos consisting largely of activities beyond what I can do is a bit demoralizing. I've modified them and just worked hard at my own pace; overall, the effort has been... Read more

You may have read about my Red Flyer in my blogs or messages. My car. And.... I'm replacing it. Yikes, it's hard to believe I'm actually doing this! Today I signed papers and made plans. Looks like on Tuesday I'll be trading in my belo... Read more

Only I can be MY lifestyle architect
Monday, May 09, 2011      6 comments

My blog really only makes sense to someone who has been on this journey INTENSELY for quite a while. My thoughts do NOT apply to someone who's not completed the SP Diet Stages at least once, read so many articles that finding a new one has beco... Read more
FIDGET!!! Just a little change MAKES a change!
Tuesday, May 03, 2011      5 comments

That's right I said FIDGET!! Now. GO FOR IT! MOVE A PART OR TWO. When you’re busy you often don’t realize you are doing mild forms of exercise. So subtle they are unnoticeable… until heaven forbid something happens and your life comes t... Read more
reasons and excuses, a thought processing
Saturday, April 30, 2011      3 comments

People cite either reasons or excuses for their negative issues and even outcomes of efforts. Actually, sometimes no reason OR excuse is necessary. Sometimes a fact is just a fact...and we deal with the fact. But the human condition s... Read more

We focus on it. We do a little bit at a time working toward changing habits. We feel like it's a struggle. Frustration hits. We think "this hurdle is just too high". We falter. We get reenergized. Try again. Focus. Then somethin... Read more
Another good check-up: that takes a little edge off a flare
Monday, April 25, 2011      2 comments

Frankly, I have felt for some time that the cancer was/is gone. And today's check-up was another good one, with my bloodwork showing the remaining kidney still is functioning as well as do the two kidneys of the 'average' person. Am in f... Read more

Saturday, April 23, 2011      2 comments

Weightloss has never been my real reason for being here, though anyone looking at me would surely think that SHOULD be my reason for lifestyle change. Nope. Actually, IndyGirl (Beth Donovan) covered a number of changes I've made in her blog ye... Read more
