A good night’s sleep

From what I have read and what I I just know 7-9 hours of sleep at night is recommended and ideal. Because I get up at 5:30 four days a week I try to get in bed between 9:30 and 10. I usually have no problem falling asleep. A lot of time I am crashing […]


Dry nose remedies

(Be warned: Some of the pics associated with the articles I link up not are not exactly appealing. I mean they aren’t grotesque, just remember it is noses.) It was either last Thursday or Friday while in Las Vegas that I noticed that my nose was really dry. I have never had a bloody nose […]


Springing forward

Most places in North America will Spring Forward tomorrow at 2 a.m. (The UK and Europe will follow in a couple of weeks.) Being from Arizona I never had to do this until I moved to Oregon in 1997. And initially I had no issues with the time change. It’s different now and has been […]


Still enjoying my coffee

When I was sick over Christmas and New Year’s I pretty much quit caffeine for that two weeks. Once I started to feel better I figured I might as well keep the caffeine to the minimum. I decided to keep my weekend enjoyment of coffee. During the week I planned to have decaf tea and […]


Filling up & emptying out

One of my goals every day is to drink enough water. I don’t really have a goal every day. But I need to drink at least 48 ounces a day. I usually have 64 ounces a day. Sometimes more. My body can definitely tell when I haven’t had enough water. Now that I have as […]


Happy feet … walking

I decided to take today off and have a four-day weekend. I accomplished a lot today. I had a dentist appointment this morning. Then the car had scheduled maintenance. And I started the daunting task of de-cluttering the spare room/office/dumping room. I took the car in a little after 9. The dealership offers courtesy shuttle […]


Showing the love … to me

Today is Valentine’s Day. I find the holiday silly and pretty much pointless. If you are single, you feel bad that you are. If you are in a relationship, you feel pressure. Curt and I don’t give gifts or cards. If we can, we do go out to dinner and eat delicious sushi. Last night […]


Getting my caffeine fix

Sunday, January 22 was the last day I had alcohol or caffeine … Between trying to not rely on caffeine, my cleanse and then getting sick I have been “substance” free. Until yesterday … I stayed home from work on Wednesday. After a long day of watching TV, movies, lounging, napping, drinking tea and water […]


Planning, dedication, hard work pays off

Last week I talked about how planning my meals and my exercise was keeping me on track. Well, the regular exercise and healthy eating has proven to be worthy. I got on the scale this morning and I lost 2.2 pounds from a week ago. I haven’t tracked my food or counted Points or calories. […]


Caffeine free?

Since I have been sick I haven’t had coffee. It’s been almost two weeks. My last cup of coffee was Christmas Eve morning. Though it is possible I had some Christmas morning. Because I wasn’t sick quite yet. But I think I had a fuu-fuu white chocoate Ghiradelli drink thing. And it was good! OK, […]
