Sat, 26 Jul 2014 06:47:15 EST Hello - Quick update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5746283 Just thought I would check in. <BR> <BR> <em>313</em> I am still consistently walking Sierra each morning. I can't imagine this changing. Aspen taught me this so many years ago. They are what is most important to me. Therefore, I need and want to show it. :) <BR> <BR> <em>315</em> I am touch and go with this, every other day mostly. Not bad, not perfect. I do find (as usual) that I feel better when I get in 2 or more likley 3 miles. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> This is still up ... Fri, 25 Jul 2014 09:51:15 EST Get it together please. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5742523 I needed to blog yesterday. I think I would have gotten more done. I have the habit of following my DH's lead and he has days where he does not accomplish much at all. Other days he moves mountains. I am the person who need to typically stay at more of a constant balance I think. I was thinking yesterday that I need to blog about my plan. I always need some sort of plan in order to move forward. <BR> <BR> Not a big deal. I am ok with taking days off but I would like to accomplish a ...

Doing well spending more time with my DH and growing a stronger relationship with Sierra. <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> FOOD choices however have been really poor. This is NOT like me or I at least like to think that this is NOT like me. <BR> <BR> I felt bad this morning and yesterday morning feeling guilty for overeating each day prior.

It may be project management work for building or who knows what. It is not necessarily bad dreams. It is simply tiring. <BR> <BR> <em>193</em> My weight is definitely up. <em>46</em> <BR> It is frustrating but definitely not unexpected. I am grabbing <em>493</em> and yesterday even <em>495</em> .

I would like to stick to a good routine and not start sleeping in. As soon as I do, I will be back to work needing to get up earlier. <BR> <BR> <em>313</em> Took Sierra for her morning walk. Super humid but ok. I got back to find an e-mail regarding the Greensboro project.

Wed, 9 Jul 2014 10:42:23 EST Walking helps - Pondering Work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5734340 Sorry friends, I need to blog through this I think so the initial topic and maybe only topic today will be work. <BR> <BR> I joined RGP, Resource Global Professions just over 2 months ago in Charlotte, NC. I was consulting more or less independently prior to that. Years ago I worked for PWC, Price WaterhouseCoopers for 8 years. That required loads of travel (4 days a week every week). This took a huge tole on my marriage without my even knowing it. My DH was always super supportive so... Tue, 8 Jul 2014 07:36:01 EST So, how am I? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728173 Good question. I am hangin in, learning. <BR> <BR> <em>313</em> My days are still starting off with a walk with Sierra. Today was about 3000 steps. That's good. She really needs it and so do I. I have not gotten back to my evening walks and I feel it. I am going to try to make myself this week, just a very short one. <BR> <BR> <em>315</em> Not a lot of treadmill time and this needs to change too. <BR> <BR> <em>193</em> Weight remains up <em>46</em> up today, NOT go... Sun, 29 Jun 2014 07:17:10 EST Maybe today is the start of a slow New Beginning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5717666 I tied to sleep in. Woke to a weird, somewhat upsetting dream at 5:00. Laid around trying to rest. Got up at 6:15 I think. Fed Sierra and we went for our walk. <BR> <BR> On the walk I thought, as I normally do. <BR> <BR> I thought about what a good, very knowledgeable friend had said... Work is work, a means to an end. This has not typically been the care for me. Work at times has been incredible, exciting, rewarding and it used to be where I felt most confident. I am not so sure... Sat, 14 Jun 2014 07:29:50 EST Finally an update on life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5717210 Wow, it has been a long time (for me) since I have blogged. I guess I am not sure what to say. I realize I should blog anyway because the words always start flowing. So how am I? <BR> <BR> This is week 2 with being under the weather. I am better though, much. It started with a sore throat, then just feeling crummy. I stayed home Monday from work and took the day off. That helped a great deal I overdid it yesterday walking too much. <BR> <BR> I think what bothers me so much is that ... Fri, 13 Jun 2014 11:49:09 EST Hello - Quick update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5706840 Not blogging much lately. I think I am not the only one. There are likely several reasons. It is a bit challenging throughout the work week. <BR> <BR> <em>41</em> I am working remote today. It is heaven. I finished two loads of laundry. <BR> <em>313</em> 2 walks with Sierra <BR> <em>315</em> 2 miles on the treadmill <BR> <em>4</em> Chicken with whatever I could find in the crock pot <BR> <em>387</em> and getting some work done as intended <BR> <BR> I have been a bi...

If I was supposed to learn something from Utah's passing I will in time. <BR> <BR> <em>334</em> I have been able to work from home all week so that has been wonderful.

Also woke up grinding my teeth. <BR> <em>24</em> Not overly motivated. Gotta go into the office today. I often am spoiled and work from home on Friday's.

It looks really nice. <BR> <BR> I now have pictures in my bathroom, 2 hung... next to Aspen's. <BR> I now have a pictures in front of the treadmill... next to Aspen's. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeo... Fri, 11 Apr 2014 12:40:51 EST Moving forward http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5668895 Yesterday was busy, no blog. <BR> <BR> YESTERDAY <BR> <BR> <em>315</em> 3 and a quarter miles on the treadmill <BR> <em>4</em> Then I drove to Charlotte to have lunch with 3 people from Resource Global Professionals. It looks like this is the group I will be going with. One of the 3 is already consulting at Well's Fargo. He seems extremely knowledgeable and friendly. It sounds I may be working with him quite a bit. That would be nice. I appreciate him taking the time out to me... Thu, 10 Apr 2014 10:00:12 EST I am doing better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5667235 First I want to start by saying... <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/1/l310257749.jpg"> <BR> <BR> You help so very much. I would be so very alone without you. <BR> <BR> I think I am doing better. I am proud that I have made it a week. I am not crying daily any more. I feel I am bouncing back fairly quickly and I of course have mixed feeling about it. I know I will have many more explosions of emotions but I am hanging in there. <BR> <BR> I think this real... Tue, 8 Apr 2014 09:40:53 EST Happiness? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5666410 Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. <BR> <BR> Someone mentioned something like happiness comes from within. I suppose I believe this. I am naturally a happy person. My DH is not necessarily. We compliment each other well. Of course what I am puzzled about now is .... how do I describe it... this in between state. <BR> <BR> What I feel provided me so much happiness... <BR> <BR> ...

I guess it is a good thing I was not thinking. Well, I work up angry and thing crummy things. I want to ask my DH why he had to strike up such a conversation at the Bar last Saturday. Why, because that seemed to kick off a whole series of conversations that extended the evening. <BR> <BR> He could say, why is it that I can't let go and really enjoy myself every other week or something and help him to release some of the tension th...

First thing first, even if I don't necessarily want it to be first. <BR> <BR> <em>387</em> This is the e-mail I received last night... <BR> "Given your training schedule, Pat would like to have you start on April 21st. I think that probably works best for you too. Carrie will be in touch with regards to on-boarding. I am excited to finally have a chance to bring you on board. Welcome!" <BR> <BR> Thank God for this. It is good to have ... Fri, 4 Apr 2014 10:25:00 EST Maybe I'm OK, could be http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5663597 Well, I went to bed again early last night. I may go to bed even earlier tonight. It is amazing how exhausting crying is. That should count for some calories being burned. I only had one good cry today. Not bad at all I think. <BR> <BR> <em>315</em> 3.5 walking on an incline. I kind of wanted to stop but my guardian angel kept messing with the internet again. <BR> <BR> <em>313</em> Took Sierra for a short walk. <BR> <BR> <em>24</em> Then the breeder called. I had e-ma... Thu, 3 Apr 2014 15:01:01 EST Well, I guess I will put it all out there http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5662655 Just had a total breakdown, lying on the floor balling where Utah passed. Finally getting up and getting on the internet. You know me... answers and evidence. <BR> <BR> The good news. I found out what the Doc must have said it was... <BR> <BR> Status epilepticus is a prolonged seizure or a series of seizures that occur continuously.

He said I need to keep exercising, bla bla bla... I told him I am. 3 miles Monday, 3.25 Tuesday and 3.5 today. Yeah me. Not. Whatever is what I feel. I am grateful to have my autopilot that gets me on the treadmill. I walked at a good pace on an incline. I even tried to get myself to jog but wasn't f... Wed, 2 Apr 2014 11:14:21 EST The Neurologist called & I am feeling a bit better at times. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5661775 Well, I wrote down some note on things I was going to blog about but then what I had been waiting for happened. <BR> <BR> I was getting upset, I don't recall what triggered it but kept repeating 'Why hasn't the Doctor called'. Well, I calmed down then the Neurologist called. He said he was just back from a long weekend. <BR> <BR> He said that Utah likely went into a type of long lasting seizure. He of course had a name for it and said it is very rare but Utah would have gone into a lo... Tue, 1 Apr 2014 13:02:22 EST Thank you. Roller coster here I come. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5660569 I took sleep aids (motrin PM) so I got sleep last night. I work up and came downstairs.

Please http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5659763 I feel I have to get this out. I feel so much pain, like I never dreamed I could possibly feel. When Aspen passed it hurt so much. But it was her time. <BR> <BR> It does NOT feel like it was Utah's time. I WAS/AM not ready! <BR> I was "ready" with Aspen. <BR> <BR> I want to literally explode, I feel the pressure in my entire body like I could break at the seams.
