It's arrived!!

Thursday, January 07, 2010

I received my copy of the Spark which I ordered seems so long ago!! I can't wait to begin reading it. I quickly thumbed through the pages (but was at work, so I had to put it away) and now at home, had too many things to accomplish before bedtime. It will be a good weekend to begin reading--supposed to be cold and snowy again..................

    Enjoy. I brought the book from the bookstore on Monday and I've started reading it. I forgot my glasses at work so, I will not read tonight. What I've read so for is good.

A Very Different Kind of Christmas

Thursday, December 24, 2009

Well, it's Christmas eve and all of our plans have been cancelled due to the weather. We live in Northeast Iowa, and have received alot of snow during the day and evening hours but also, rain which has turned into ice as the temperatures fluctuate back and forth. It has made travel pretty much impossible, at least not worth the chance of getting to your destination safely as well as getting back! So spending the Eve with my husband's family has been moved to a week from Saturday. My son is not coming tomorrow-he lives up in the twin cities and had to work today on Christmas Eve. So it breaks my heart that I will not be able to spend Christmas with him. I have a refrigerator full of food, dishes we were going to take along and food for Christmas day. And it all changed so abruptly. I've never experienced a Christmas like this one will be..............My hope is that travel by Saturday will be feasible. We had planned to travel to Wisconsin to see my family-4.5 hours away. If we don't make that, I will be very sad. I will try to make the best of spending tonight and tomorrow with my husband. We just miss our families.

SOMETIMES WE FOCUS ON THE WHAT IF'S AND GET DISCOURAGED WHEN WE CAN'T DO WHAT WE WON'T THAT WE FORGET TO BE THANKFUL FOR THE WE HAVE'S.LOL.. KNOW WHAT I MEAN? IF YOUR LOVED ONES ARE ALIVE AND WELL, BE THANKFUL. CALL THEM. NO IT'S NOT THE SAME, BUT IT BEATS WHAT SOME HAVE,"NO-ONE", OR NO PLACE TO EVEN CALL HOME.
AS FOR ALL THAT FOOD IN YOUR FRIDGE,INVITE YOUR NEIHBORS OVER WHO MAY NOT HAVE A WA TO COOK TO HELP YOU EAT ALL THAT FOOD SO IT WILL BE A BLESSING AND NOT GO TO WASTE. GOD WILL BLESS YOU FORIT.
MAY YOU BE BLESSED EVEN MORE, AND KEPT WARM.

Holidays

Sunday, December 06, 2009

The holidays can make people feel many different ways. Some may be sad, remembering a loved one or friend that is no longer here to spend them with. Some may be happy, all the activity bringing joy to their soul. Some may feel excitement, just the thought of Santa and his reindeer. Some may feel love, sharing their time with people they care about. Some may feel appreciation, donating their time to a local charity or organization in need of help.
I am so appreciative for all that I have. I share in all the feelings I mentioned above. Thinking and reflecting on this time of year, can very easily bring a tear to my eyes. I wish everyone a very meaningful season and hope that love and happiness fill your hearts. emoticon

    I lost my mom to breast cancer on Christmas eve, but it was the cancer that took her and not the Holiday. I am grateful for all I have and the people in my life that make it what it is. I am especially grateful this year that my son will be home for Christmas (from boot camp) because I don't know when we will be able to see each other again after this. I only wish all our troops could spend the Holidays with their families.

Back in the Saddle

Monday, November 30, 2009

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I sure did. I am blessed with a wonderful family and circle of friends. I live over 4 hours apart from my family, so the holidays mean traveling "home" to spend time with the family. This year was no exception, but the weather sure was. Travel was great, the roads were clear and dry. There is always lots of good food as well. And so, I did eat more than I should have. I didn't miss a day of exercise however, so that keeps me positive. Now that I am back home and being Monday, it's time to eat better and much less of it. I am not going to get on the scale until my food intake is back to pre-holiday amounts. Then I won't be so disappointed and I won't give myself a chance to get down or depressed. Here's to a good week--to all of us!

Blood profile results

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

A little background is needed to understand my results. My colesterol was high ten years ago, so I had been on Lipitor for many years. When I was first diagnosed with high cholesterol, my eating habits weren't so great and I was a smoker. Just this year, my insurance decided it would not cover Lipitor any longer, so I figured it would be a good time to stop taking the Lipitor and see if my reading went up. Since I was diagnosed with high cholesterol at such an early age, we didn't know for sure if it was hereditary for me. My mom has it also. My doctor agreed that I could stop taking the Lipitor as we knew this screening is always done in November. Well, bad news. My reading has increased 50 points!! How disappointing since I exercise daily, have quit smoking over 2 years ago and eat a healthy diet. Must be in my genes. Now I will be going back on medication, but will have to find a different drug. So is life!

    I'm sorry to hear that but it is amazing what doctors can do. Keep up the exercise and healthy eating and try again maybe.
