I don't know how the weather is to whoever is reading this, but here in Hampton Roads, VA, it's raining on and off. I could easily use this as an excuse to not vote, but after work, I will have my umbrella, wear my plastic rain coat, wait it out in the long line and vote.
I also wanted to share with you that I remember my grandmother telling me that in August 26, 1920, when women won the right to vote, she was 15, and told me what women went through in those previous years; beatings, jailing, violence,etc. So, here's to you, nana. God rest your soul, your words will forever keep me inspired to vote.

It's been awhile since I've blogged, but...........here it is. Today is Monday, 10/20/08. With the exception of most of late August to Early September (3 weeks), I have been diligent with circuit/weight training 3-4 times a week, and vigorous swimming for an hour to hour and 1/2 for cardio at least 4 times a week, time permitting.
As a reminder for myself: I need to do more abs, I'm still a bit soft and flabby in that area. So................what am I waiting for! I'm getting down to business right now!
Until next time.

Last evening, my husband took me out to a very nice restaurant for my birthday celebration. I had broiled fish, not fried; steamed veggies also with herbs for seasoning instead a huge gob of butter. And instead of having a whole cake, we brought home one piece for each of us to have with skim milk. Well, it's morning and I feel like a million bucks! I only gained a 1/2 pound, not bad! This is how much Spark People has changed my eating habits even for special occasions!

In May of 1988, I graduated from my local community college with an Associates in Applied Science degree. This month (May) marks 20 years of being in the medical field and I never regretted it.
Long story short; I worked in various Dr.'s offices doing both the clinical and clerical aspects (such as receptionist, medical records, assisting with minor surgical procedures, taking blood samples and vital signs from patients), several of which were inner-city locations in the Philly area.
So now............fast forward to the present. I now work for a dialysis company as a courier picking up patients diagnostic specimens, averaging about 135 miles in a day. It is the company van. After my run, I package everything for shipment. The boxes weigh as much as 25 pounds because we use frozen gel packs and that is a "workout", let me tell you.
I love the freedom of being out and about. And I made many friends, both patients and the dedicated nurses and techs. I am going into my 5th year and boy that flew by, I enjoy my job that much.
