We were suppose to set a goal for each day and then on Monday WI and see if we gained, lost, or stayed the same. <BR> I went from 198.2 to 198.6. It is not much of a gain but still up a little. Not sure if I should give myself the 20 points or not but to be safe and honest I guess I won't. <BR> My goals were all the same each day. To not eat anything after dinner. Two days I did okay and the other two days I ... Tue, 24 Mar 2015 22:50:20 EST Thirteen more weeks to Retirement Time is getting closer and I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. I can't believe its been a whole month since I wrote a blog. <BR> In my past blogs I have complained about my supervisor and I guess he got a good talking to for playing favoritism. We have this one girl in our department and he has never written her up for any mistakes she has made. She is young, skinny and attractive and I guess those are the people they want. <BR> The Union Rep told me they told our Supe... Fri, 20 Mar 2015 02:39:26 EST Four More Days of Vacation Left I am having a great week off. Spent yesterday at the beach with a friend of mine. It was very nice over there. Didn't make the best choice for lunch. I ordered Fish and Chips which I haven't had in years. <BR> It didn't taste that good and will probably not order it again. Once you get into the habit of making good choices by ordering veggies etc, you forget about the things you use to order and then they don't taste as good. <BR> I am meeting another person for lunch tomorrow. She i... Fri, 20 Feb 2015 00:55:12 EST Happy Valentines Day Hello Sparkfriends: <BR> I want to wish you All a Happy and Healthy Valentines Day. I am planning to have breakfast out with a friend of mine this morning. Later I am going to the 24-hour Fitness Center. Then my treat will be spending time in the jacuzzi. <BR> I got a good report at the Dr.'s office Friday. I don't have to have knee surgery. I do have arthritis in the knees and we are just sticking with the pain pills since they are working. I may have to have an injection later on. Of... Sat, 14 Feb 2015 03:51:50 EST Almost time for bed It's almost time for bed and thought I would do a little writing first. I took Wednesday off from work and it turned out to be a good day. <BR> I had to fast for 12 hours because of Lab work. Tuesday evening after dinner I didn't eat anything. Had my appointment early in the morning around 7:00. While I was waiting I was just walking around. <BR> They have a cafe right next to the waiting room. I decided to go take a look in the window. I am not kidding! It was more like a bakery than ... Thu, 22 Jan 2015 01:31:59 EST Popping in to say Hi to All of you Hello Sparkies: <BR> This is my first free weekend in a very long time and it felt great.

Both teams are great and very supportive. <BR> My goal is to take my teams more seriously and spend more time now tha... Sun, 11 Jan 2015 20:48:26 EST
