Healthy Steps – Week 8

This was a challenging week for me; a three-day weekend, a trip, several stressful meetings, and a slow period at work. Any one of these can and did trigger my desire to eat EVERYTHING. I didn’t eat EVERYTHING, but I certainly did eat plenty. Thus, is was a pleasant surprise when I was down .4 …

Healthy Steps – Week 7

This week I was down 3.8 pounds. This makes a total of 20.6 pounds (12.2 of those in this year) removed and… drum roll please… 5% of my starting weight.

Healthy Steps – Week 3

Right off the bat… I lost 3.6 pounds this week. I’m a little surprised, but so thrilled. It wasn’t a stellar week, and my steps were absolutely tiny, but at least I’m heading in the right direction. Once again, I’m not ready to take on more, so I’m going to stick to my basic set …

A new “Little” adventure

Today, after months of planning, the final “feature” of my summer garden re-do was installed. Meet Little Free Library, charter # 67289. In December, the LFL website had some pretty good sales, so as a “Santa” present, I got myself a library. I had to paint it (harder than it looks because the hardware had …

2018 Goal List

It’s really easy to write down all the things I’d like to accomplish over the coming year. What’s hard is remembering I only have so much time and energy.
