Happy Easter & Throwback Thursday

Happy Throwback Thursday!
Here is a pic of my Grandma
She is golfing!
I never knew she golfed.
This pic was taken sometime in the 1920's in Chicago.

wishing everyone a happy  Easter holiday!

We will be spending the weekend in Indiana with our daughter Kelly and her family.
They recently moved into a new home, we are excited to see it!
Of course can't wait to see Kelly, Josh and baby Everett!

So happy to celebrate Easter, celebrating Jesus and all He did for us!

I will blog again sometime next week.

God bless

eating & weight loss

If only it was this simple!

I need to lose 10-15 lbs. 
My clothes do not fit.
I am uncomfortable.

I am pretty active.
I walk,
do housework, gardening..etc.
Now that Spring is here...
I plan on starting to ride my bike again.

So, it does come down to my eating habits for the most part.
I love sweets.
Cake, cookies, candy, name it.
I like to snack...too much.

Weight Watchers has worked for me in the past...
but once the weight was off  I started careless eating again.
I get tired of the counting of calories, points, etc. 
Last month I  put an app on my phone, tried the WW method
for a couple of weeks.
It got old real quick.

has a good plan for eating.
It's healthier.
It's not depriving.
Eat in moderation.

As Bethenny says...
"Cancel Your Membership in the Clean Plate Club."

I am re-reading  & putting to practice her book

Here is a good article about carbs

I am adjusting my eating style & habits
I am exercising more.
I am drinking more water.

spring fever has arrived!

 Happy April!

So happy to be in a new month, a new season!
Flowers are coming up, the grass is green again,
buds on the trees
the birds are so happy!

I am planning out the month in my Planner Perfect April book.
Keeps me motivated, productive and on the road
to fulfilling the purpose God gave me.
I am blessed.

Also Spring cleaning has started!

I am not doing much today,
after all it is Sunday!

My coffee choice this afternoon is
Jazzy Java by Monica Potter ...delicious!
My mug is from Life is Good.

sharing life

beautiful walking day

Happy Tuesday from my little world!
I love our little town on Lake Erie.

So refreshing and relaxing to take a walk
along the lake and today was perfect!

A bit windy, but sunny, temps in the low 50's.

A beautiful day!
