Day 4 of eating well!

Monday, April 22, 2013

I've re-committed myself to eating well! I turned down cookies and candy this last Friday at work. It wasn't easy, the cookies were Eileen's Colossal Cookies. I've gained a lot of weight back this year, and need to jump start the weight loss again. Hubby and kids are supportive still too.

I've had a lot of trouble with pain in my left foot. I've been going to the chiropractor for weeks to get it straightened out. I also finally got some new shoes that I'm really happy about: Brooks running shoes and Keen casuals. Had a lot of fun shopping with my oldest daughter too. She got a pair of Sperry's with some birthday money. I was so happy that she was patient with me. I must have tried on at least 20 pair of shoes before deciding.

Work has been busy and it's impossible now to get on-line while there. We had a complete system change which has made some of my work very tedious and time consuming. I enjoy the people I work with, but miss actually having conversations since we all are concentrating so hard now. I work in a hospital pharmacy, and our hospital just converted to paperless charting. Just about everything we do now is on the computer. I'm adapting, but I get worn out every time I work.

It would help to boost my spirits a bit if Spring would actually arrive. We had snow last week, and there is snow in the forecast again for tonight. It's not sticking, but come on already! It's almost May!

I hope everyone out there is still doing ok. I appreciate all the support all my Sparkfriends have given me.

    Life is made up of always changing elements. Be proud that you have been honest in your appraisal of your status. This is 90 % of the battle.

You WILL succeed, of that I am confident.
