Okay, so I've been bad about checking in EVERY day! Maybe once a week or so? <BR> <BR> I haven't weighed myself and won't until tomorrow. But... <BR> <BR> 1. I've been drinking more water. With medication the doctor has me on, I've spent more time in the restroom than I have at my desk, at least it feels like that! <BR> <BR> 2. I've been decent at avoiding the candy jar. I had one fun-size box of Dots yesterday and that was IT! Now that I'm writing things down (or at least trying.... Wed, 18 Nov 2015 11:24:46 EST 11-12 My Journey Day 1 - Evening Picked up my medication from the pharmacy at lunch. I start taking it tomorrow morning. My doctor and pharmacist are both going to be monitoring closely since this Phentermine can have some nasty side effects. I've heard that some people have no problems with it but my pharmacist said to watch the blood pressure. Thankfully they have a machine so I can check it several days a week. I LOVE living in a small town! This is one of those times where it helps to have people watching out for y... Thu, 12 Nov 2015 23:40:33 EST 11-12 My Journey - Day 1 (Morning) Starting my journey today. Went to the doctor this morning about the weight issue. She has me on a medication that acts like an appetite suppressant (not sure what, since I turned in my prescription to my pharmacist to pick up on my lunch hour) that she said the main side effects are heart-related so I have to go back to the doctor every month to renew it. Only downfall is that insurance won't cover the doctor visit so it is going to be $64 out of my pocket every month. The most important... Thu, 12 Nov 2015 12:23:45 EST 11-11 - A New Outlook on Life One of my favorite times of day (and days of the year) is 11-11. I'm a numbers geek and seeing the same number on the clock or writing the same day and date is just cool to me! <BR> <BR> I've been thinking about the way my life has been going for quite some time and have decided that 11-11 is a good time to start making some major changes. Oh sure, I've talked about doing them in the past but haven't even reached that 21-day habit level that is supposedly the amount of time to form a goo... Wed, 11 Nov 2015 11:24:14 EST October!?! Wow, where is the year going?! We are finally to my favorite time of the year! The cooler nights, the jacket weather, almost time to get my sweaters out again! My theory is in the winter, if you're cold, you can always put on a sweater or something. In the summer, if you're too hot, you're out of luck! Besides, I don't think ANYONE would want to see me naked! <em>40</em> <BR> <BR> This is going to be an important month for me as far as my health. My boss has given me some awesome ... Thu, 1 Oct 2015 21:36:19 EST Now I've Done It... What have I done, you ask? Well, nothing good, as far as my health is concerned!! <BR> <BR> Let me just say, I REFUSE to become my grandmother! I've let my health issues get so far out of hand (no matter how hard I try to not let them get that way) that my feet are constantly swollen (no, I'm NOT pregnant!) and my legs hurt! My grandmother refuses to take her Lasix and so her legs are the size of tree trunks! (It will make her go to the bathroom too often if she takes it, she says) I'm ... Sun, 23 Aug 2015 01:01:42 EST August Already?! The month all teachers and students hate...back to school!! For those of us who DON'T get our summers off, it's just August. <BR> <BR> Vacation is over. Had a wonderful time, but looked HORRIBLE in pictures, especially the one taken of me on the beach in Ocean City, NJ. THAT is the kind of photo that is quite motivating. My mom said I should put it on my fridge but I think it should just be BURNED instead! <BR> <BR> A "free" weekend (except for the funeral of my beloved high school Engl... Sat, 1 Aug 2015 10:39:18 EST July...Yep, sure feels like it! Greetings from HOT Kansas! The heat is good for the harvest so I guess I can live with it for now... <BR> <BR> Ah, July! Already had a fun adventure! A friend of mine bought me a ticket to see Weird Al Yankovic for my birthday back in January. Last night was the concert! And WHAT a concert it was! FABULOUS!! Fun to see how an artist who has been around 32+ years incorporates years of music into one 2-hour show. WOW! He went WAY back on some of the songs! <BR> <BR> Made my VIvofit... Thu, 2 Jul 2015 01:23:59 EST June Checkup... Over half-way through June. How are my goals coming? <BR> <BR> 1. I am wearing my Vivofit every day. There are a few days I haven't made goal but I now have a good friend who also has one and is challenging me as far as steps. He's been reffing basketball this summer so some days he has over 13,000 steps! I decided I was going to meet his challenge and see if I could beat him at least one day! His last check in was 7,000 steps. I have 10,535! So, unless he comes up with a lot more b... Thu, 25 Jun 2015 21:57:37 EST 5 Goals for June 1 1/2 hours until June 1st. (Central Daylight Time) <BR> <BR> I'm going on vacation on July 22nd to visit relatives in Philadelphia (and attend a cousin's wedding). I haven't seen any of them (except for my Aunt) since 2008! My Grandma reminds me of that often. I finally have a steady job with vacation time! <BR> <BR> So, 5 small goals I'm going to shoot for in June...tune in to see how I do! <BR> <BR> 1. Hit goal on my Vivofit every day. I had a Fitbit One but kept losing it. W... Sun, 31 May 2015 23:41:28 EST Almost June!! Hard to believe Monday is June 1st! May has been quite the stressful month for me with our deadline at work. We have had a lot of interruptions and other things thrown at us so we're not going to meet the deadline but we're not the only company who isn't, so we're hoping for an extension. Will have to see how that works out. <BR> <BR> CPAP life is going quite well! I've been sleeping anywhere from 6 1/2 to 9 hours a night with some waking up to adjust the mask but not as much anymore. ... Fri, 29 May 2015 01:22:46 EST CPAP Adventures - Nights 1 & 2 For a few days, I'm going to chronicle my adventures with my new CPAP machine in hopes that some of you reading will know what I'm going through and have some "tips"... <BR> <BR> My results from the sleep study were quite astounding! The max Respiratory Episodes they prefer you to have in one hour is 5 or less, NOT the 67 that I had! The most my doctor had seen in quite some time! Yes, that's more than one a minute! I also had oxygen desaturation, so as Dr. Ronsick said, I'm definitely a... Sat, 23 May 2015 16:48:41 EST May = STRESS!!! We've arrived at May! Wow, where has the time gone? This is going to be one STRESSFUL month for me! Facing a June 1st deadline at work that it's going to take the 3 of us in my department a LOT of time and energy to meet! We can do it! <BR> <BR> Thankful for my vacation day next Friday! My bagpipe band is playing in a parade in a nearby town. Hoping for beautiful weather! It's usually pretty nice on that day. I just hope I don't think about work when I'm off! I've been dreaming abou... Sat, 2 May 2015 21:59:23 EST 3.14.15 Pi Day = My Day!! Pi Day, my sister's 40th birthday and MY day to work on getting my life in order. <BR> <BR> Many issues in my life have been due to the fact that I'm SO unorganized I don't know which end is up at times! Today I'm going to work on fixing that. It's going to take some time, but I have a plan! I've had "plans" before, I've just been HORRIBLE about sticking to them! <BR> <BR> 1. I live in a tiny apartment so it shouldn't take me hours to clean it! I could probably do it all in an hour... Sat, 14 Mar 2015 11:41:34 EST March!! Wow, already on the 3rd month of 2015! Time flies! <BR> <BR> March is going to be an interesting month for me for several reasons: <BR> <BR> 1. My friend who has been working in Hawaii the last 3+ years comes home (may already be here, or stranded somewhere along the way due to snow). Good thing he likes to shovel snow since we have it! When we lived in Overland Park, we played a lot of tennis, rode bicycles, went walking and other "healthy" stuff. Then we'd go eat somewhere NOT health... Sun, 1 Mar 2015 01:11:32 EST Happy Birthday to Me...Changes I am now on my way through my journey through my 45th year. Big events seem to happen to me on double years. Example, I graduated from college at 22, my Dad died when I was 33, what big event will happen now that I'm 44? I'm hoping it's something FABULOUS like meeting the man of my dreams and getting married, but I'll settle for getting into the shape I've always wanted to be in! <BR> <BR> So...that's going to take a few lifestyle changes... <BR> <BR> The biggest one is going to be get... Mon, 26 Jan 2015 00:26:55 EST Sabotage!! NOT been a good two months or so for me health-wise! <BR> <BR> I now live on my own which means I do my own cooking, or don't. I've been eating a lot of Subway Pastrami sandwiches...I only have a "limited time", right? Or my old standby, PIZZA! Yeah, not good for the body! Sabotage #1 <BR> <BR> I haven't been very good at taking my Plexus Slim. Even though I felt good when I took it, I haven't been taking it very often lately. I usually sleep in too late to remember to take it befor... Mon, 15 Dec 2014 01:19:06 EST Time To Update! Wow, looks like I completely spaced off September! <BR> <BR> Lots to update! <BR> <BR> 1. Probably the biggest development in September will actually take place in October. After 2 1/2 years of living with my Mom rent-free, I am moving out! I was able to get a one-bedroom place at the public housing complex here in town. It will be great having my independence back again but it will also be nice being close enough that I can come home for a meal or two! I officially move around the ... Sun, 28 Sep 2014 19:43:49 EST 25,000!! When I post this blog, I will have finally reached 25,000 SparkPoints! <BR> <BR> I'm amazed it took me this long to achieve that! When I first joined SparkPeople back in 2010, I was faithful about logging in every day. I had a SparkStreak of several hundred days before I missed a day. I was unemployed during that time and had time to read all of the great articles and advice. Now that life has gotten busy with work and all my other activities, I don't get the chance to log in like I wa... Sun, 10 Aug 2014 00:42:29 EST Ready to Rock August! July was kind of a wash out for me in terms of exercising/eating right. Getting sick just threw me off! <em>527</em> <BR> <BR> August is going to be MUCH better! After watching the infomercial for a LONG time, I finally decided to order my own Focus T25. I have a friend who has done it and she said it really kicked her butt! Looking forward to seeing results! I have 3 months until my Baltimore trip (YIKES!) and 4 1/2 months until Christmas, so I should have plenty of time to get it... Fri, 1 Aug 2014 20:30:41 EST Are You Kidding Me?! I spent the entire day at work on Thursday sneezing and blowing my nose. It was RAW by the time I left work! I became very skilled in driving with my knees because I kept sneezing and blowing my nose while driving. <BR> <BR> I took 24-hour Allergy medicine around 1:30 on Thursday. Didn't work. Took another one, didn't work. Now, I've always heard the one thing that allows you to tell if you're dealing with a cold or allergies is the color of the mucus. (GROSS! <em>24</em> ) Well, ... Sat, 12 Jul 2014 20:07:08 EST We Interrupt this Habit... Well, this past Saturday STUNK! <BR> <BR> 1. I drove 3.5+ hours to Kansas City to watch my favorite baseball team only get 3 hits and lose 2-1. <BR> <BR> 2. The people I wanted to visit after the game weren't home. <BR> <BR> 3. The BBQ place I REALLY wanted to eat at was PACKED so I didn't eat there. <BR> <BR> 4. Went to visit a friend and my cell phone ended up falling out of my purse onto his front lawn. He found it Sunday morning which meant I had to make a 2-hour round-trip... Wed, 25 Jun 2014 01:09:35 EST Forming a Habit! Well, I overcame my challenge of the Wellness Center being closed. Thankfully the town where I live has a lovely lake. I walked downtown this evening and did several laps around the lake. The mosquitoes are starting to make their presence known again, but really didn't have much interruption. <BR> <BR> FitBit Steps = 12,904 <BR> Stairs = Just 1 flight <BR> Miles = 5.56 <BR> <BR> 3 of the last 4 days have been over 10,000 steps! Actually, over 11,000 steps! I am starting to form a hab... Mon, 16 Jun 2014 00:37:02 EST A Blessing in Disguise? Well, I've now seen photos all over Facebook of my "man friend" with his girlfriend and it's driving me batty! I'm not going to be immature and unfriend him, but it still hurts every time I see one. If I can just remember the bad times instead of all the good times, maybe it will be easier... <BR> <BR> That said, maybe all this is a blessing in disguise...when I was with him, all we did was eat and sit around watching TV. Occasionally we'd go to the Casino and a football game or two, but ... Sat, 14 Jun 2014 23:54:38 EST A Better Day! Today was MUCH better! I didn't have as much sleep as I'd like to have due to the fact that I'm not one who sleeps through storms. Tonight should be much quieter! <BR> <BR> I didn't get up and go work out before work, but I did take 25 minutes out of my lunch hour and went and walked on the treadmill. I do need to get some weight lifting in there, so in order to do that I'm going to HAVE to get up before work! I figure if I can focus on the weights in the morning (except on Mondays and W... Thu, 12 Jun 2014 23:53:40 EST Failure...and lots of it! Looking back over my blogs the last few months, I've noticed one HUGE thing. Everything I've tried to do up to this point, I've failed at. <BR> <BR> 1. My high school class reunion is now less than a month away. Instead of losing any weight, I've actually gained 5 pounds! <BR> <BR> 2. My 20-day plan is basically a bust. Haven't done anything I thought I was going to do. <BR> <BR> 3. And the ultimate failure...things have officially ended with my "man friend". Even though things ... Wed, 11 Jun 2014 23:09:06 EST Time to "Reload" Completely revamping my eating habits, AGAIN! One of these days SOMETHING is going to stick! <BR> <BR> Doing a 100-Day thing of sorts. Instead of weighing in every week, I cut things into 5 20-day segments. I'm also making one change each 20 days and see if I can stick with that. <BR> <BR> The first 20 days, I'm going to stay out of the candy drawer at work. I've consumed a LOT of chocolate and usually end up feeling absolutely HORRIBLE! Cutting out the chocolate is actually two-fo... Wed, 28 May 2014 23:55:36 EST Week One Results Well, at the end of Week 1, I'm losing by 4 pounds. He's lost 8, I've lost 4. But, at least I've LOST! <BR> <BR> Challenges #1: A VERY busy week with little time to exercise. I should have done SOMETHING, but being on a deadline with my second job took almost all of my evening. I don't have that deadline this week, but what I do have is either the start of a cold or MAJOR allergies! Either way, I have absolutely NO energy to do ANYTHING! I have walked over 7,000 steps today so that'... Mon, 31 Mar 2014 21:40:00 EST IT'S ON!! Well, yesterday was my date with my "man-friend". We watched basketball and ate and complained about how much we need to lose weight. <BR> <BR> We decided that starting tomorrow, we're going to have a contest to see who can lose the most weight in a month. The loser pays the winner $50. YIKES! When you bring money into it, it's an entirely different deal! Of course, the $50 may not ever change hands, but it's a good incentive either way. <BR> <BR> It's also a good way to get me in ... Sun, 23 Mar 2014 14:04:37 EST Some REAL Motivation Now! "Birthdays Challenge" is going well. I've lost about 2 pounds since I started, depending on what time of day I weigh myself...I didn't drink as much water as I should have today because I was working in a different building which would have made it nearly impossible to get to the bathroom as often as I do when I consume the quantities of water that I normally do. <BR> <BR> My "man-friend" did something TOTALLY out of the ordinary today! HE PLANNED AHEAD!! His "1-year Sober Anniversary" is... Fri, 28 Feb 2014 20:54:57 EST A So-So Week... Things are going well as far as the Birthdays challenge. I have done some form of exercise every day since Sunday. I even did Zumba AND Rockin' Body tonight! Walked over 12,000 steps today! (And drank either 72 or 96 oz. of water...I lost track). <BR> <BR> The "so-so" recent lab results at my doctor weren't what I wanted. My A1C level was still in the Pre-Diabetic range so my doctor put me back on the Metformin. My prescription had run out and she wanted to see me before she ... Wed, 26 Feb 2014 00:57:19 EST Birthdays Challenge... I'm going to give myself a bit of a challenge... <BR> <BR> As the title of this blog states, it's a Birthday Challenge. <em>44</em> No, not MY birthday, I've already HAD my birthday! <BR> <BR> Starting tomorrow (yeah, I'm ALWAYS "starting tomorrow", but it works this time), I'm going to "refocus" on my eating/exercising. The reason I say tomorrow works this time is that tomorrow is my oldest niece's 9th birthday. I'm going to work on creating good habits (drinking more water on wee... Sun, 23 Feb 2014 01:48:19 EST My Journey - The Word of the Day Is... PROTEIN!! <em>496</em> <em>490</em> <BR> <BR> I made a HUGE discovery this week and with some confirmation from a friend of mine, am working to put it into my healthy eating (He said, "Don't use the word 'Diet'")...Monday morning, I ate one of my Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls (The Delight kind) and an apple for breakfast. For the FIRST time in about FOREVER, I was FULL all morning!! I wondered how that could be...then I noticed something on the box my breakfast bowl came in...22g PR... Wed, 19 Feb 2014 23:54:51 EST My Journey - Day 1: Hurdle #1 As mentioned in my earlier blog, my 25th High School Class Reunion is coming up. If that isn't enough, I went to a SMALL high school (Graduating class had 43, I think) so everyone knew everyone. There really wasn't any way to keep to yourself. And I wasn't the type of person who wanted to do that anyway. <BR> <BR> I've struggled with my weight CONSTANTLY over the years, probably since 4th grade. That's when all those "seconds" at lunch began to catch up with me BIG TIME! I was 120 in ... Sat, 15 Feb 2014 02:52:16 EST Note To Self... I am feeling like CRAP! And it is my own fault! Why? Because I have been eating like crap! I try and watch what I eat, but sooner or later, I'm going to slip something in there that my stomach just goes, "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!" At some point today, I did that. I just wish I knew what it was that hated me. I'm thinking it was the protein bar I had this afternoon for a snack (after I'd had plenty to eat for lunch), but whatever it was, I wish I could get rid of it! <em>24</em> <B... Tue, 11 Feb 2014 00:23:50 EST Motivation -- A Reunion! AAAAAAAHHHHH! Well, all I can say at this moment is I HATE WINTER!! <em>24</em> I am SO ready for all of this snow we have to melt and be gone! It's hard to get motivated to go anywhere and exercise when the roads are crappy! <BR> <BR> Was reminded last week that my 25th high school class reunion is this summer over the 4th of July. Since I was a chubbster in high school, I most certainly do NOT want to look like that now! Time to get serious! It's been a bit frustrating here at the first becaus... Sun, 9 Feb 2014 02:05:30 EST 43 -- Looking forward to my best year yet! Wow, guess it's been a while since I blogged! <BR> <BR> At 9:15 tonight, I will "officially" be 43. I enjoy celebrating birthdays because it means that God has blessed me with another year on this earth. Birthdays in my family mean family get-togethers and lots of attention! As one of my ex-boyfriends once said, "You Reeds celebrate EVERYTHING!" (We also celebrate big on holidays, too) <BR> <BR> Last week, I finally decided that unless I'm accountable to someone, my weight loss journe... Sat, 25 Jan 2014 16:04:11 EST This Time Next Year... I've always been the type of person who lives in the past. Well, NO MORE!! What's past is past. I can't change it. I can't second-guess myself anymore. Time to become a forward thinker! A year is a long way off, obviously, but it's fun to think about what could happen... <BR> <BR> 1. My Sweet Adelines chorus will have competed in Baltimore, Maryland in November. As much coaching and rehearsing as we have coming up, I can't imagine we'll do horrible! Maybe Top 20? Top 10 would be gr... Fri, 20 Dec 2013 01:27:31 EST Yep, Monday!! Got the "official" word today! I do start on Monday! Went and filled out the "paperwork" (all computerized now) this afternoon. Glad I did that today, it took over 1 1/2 hours to do it! Wouldn't have wanted to cut into my workday with that! <BR> <BR> With the payroll as it is, I'll only get a week's pay on the paycheck I get on Christmas (hopefully the day before!) but that'll be okay. My first REAL one will be in early January. We get paid every two weeks which will be nice! <em>... Fri, 6 Dec 2013 17:52:12 EST STILL Waiting....GRRR! Well, I THOUGHT I would get to start the new job this week! Got the pre-employment testing done yesterday, but I guess they're still waiting on the results of one of them. Too bad my ex-brother-in-law who works in HR can't just say "Susan doesn't do drugs!" but that wouldn't fly. <em>24</em> So, here I wait. Looking more and more like it'll be Monday before I get to start. Oh well, at least I've got a job!! <BR> <BR> It's gotten COLD around here and going to get even worse the end... Wed, 4 Dec 2013 16:22:41 EST New Job, Check! Now what? Well, now that I've got the new job, which I will start some time next week, I hope, (They couldn't get me in to do my pre-employment testing until Tuesday at the clinic.) time to focus on the rest of my life. <BR> <BR> Now that my commute has been cut from 35 minutes to about 5, I'll have a lot more time to work out! So, some thoughts: <BR> <BR> 1. Bed NO LATER THAN 11:00! (Except for Mondays, which are Sweet Adelines nights and I don't even get home until 11:30) <BR> <BR> 2. At the g... Wed, 27 Nov 2013 21:07:15 EST Answered Prayers...YES!!! Well, thankfully that didn't take long! God's answer to whether or not I'd get the job here, which is what I really wanted, is YES!! I just went to an Open House at one of the newly renovated buildings that the company I'll be working for has done and I mentioned to the Company President (who I used to babysit!) that I interviewed last week. He said, "Yeah, saw that! Have you heard anything back?" I said, "No." He said, "Oh, you will!" and gave me a fist bump. I later ran into the owne... Tue, 26 Nov 2013 15:57:05 EST Disappointment...But Minor Found out this morning that I didn't get the job that I originally wanted so much in Sedgwick. I thought I would have been more disappointed than I was. God obviously has different plans for me. Will I get the job here? I don't know, but I'm really hoping so. As I may have mentioned before, the gal who interviewed me told my ex-brother-in-law, who works in HR, that the interview went "very well". Not sure how to interpret the "very well", but he seemed to think that was a good sign! <... Mon, 25 Nov 2013 13:40:11 EST An Unexpected Gift... Wow, two days in a row! Impressive! <BR> <BR> Had a TOTAL surprise this afternoon!! It takes a bit to explain the background, so bear with me: <BR> <BR> Last week, my Mom had a man from my sister's church come and paint the ceilings. They'd never been painted in the 42 years she's lived here (my parents built the house and moved in to it in 1971 when I was 2 months old) and really needed it! What a difference a coat of paint makes, even on "popcorn" ceilings! As the painter was finishi... Sun, 24 Nov 2013 21:44:29 EST This Week...What Will It Bring? The week of Thanksgiving! Could be a very interesting week! <BR> <BR> 1. I should find out SOMETHING in terms of where my next job will be. Will it be here in Sterling? Will it be in Sedgwick? Will be fun to find out! I'm now 50/50 on what job I want to work out. Although I would like to get out on my own, I do love my hometown and would definitely like to work here. Since the place here has now asked for my references, I think that might actually be the one that works out...we sha... Sat, 23 Nov 2013 18:31:08 EST BRRR... It's cold! And it's only November!! I hope this isn't a sign of things to come!! <BR> <BR> A few updates... <BR> <BR> 1. As I thought originally, I don't qualify for Unemployment. I'm not too bummed out by that, but it would have been nice to have the money! Hopefully one of the jobs I've interviewed for this past week will pan out. <BR> <BR> 2. The interviews I had with the company here in my hometown went VERY well! I had feedback from my ex-brother-in-law who told me that my poss... Thu, 21 Nov 2013 23:54:05 EST The Waiting Game... Had written a lovely blog but the computer ate it... <BR> <BR> Quite a bit has happened in my life since November 7th....some follow-up first... <BR> <BR> 1. The contract position I was all excited about didn't materialize. They decided to interview me for something else that wasn't my cup of tea at all. I also didn't get that "friendly" vibe from the people there. The contact would have been longer than originally thought and, while the money would have been great, I would have had to ... Tue, 19 Nov 2013 11:37:16 EST Things Are Looking Up - Part 2 I've used the title before but that's a good description of what's happening... <BR> <BR> 1. Had a phone call yesterday from an agency with a contract position possibility in Wichita. Would be with a SOLID company but only through the end of the year. There is a possibility I could be hired on permanently, which would be great! Haven't had any follow-up to this point, but the pay would be FABULOUS!! The only issue would be finding a place to stay in Wichita instead of commuting over an... Thu, 7 Nov 2013 13:24:35 EST Frustration... It's only been a week and 2 days and I'm starting to get frustrated on the job search. I applied for Unemployment, but it seems like the State would rather people end up on the street than actually have to pay them while they are looking for a new job. Thankfully I STILL live with my Mom, although I'm hoping that the next job I am able to find (if ever!) pays me enough to be able to move out! <BR> <BR> I have been working out more (30 minutes yesterday, HoopFusion class tonight) but the ... Tue, 5 Nov 2013 12:16:47 EST Life Changes... My life is changing in some good and not so good ways.... <BR> <BR> One way that I see as both good/not-so-good...As of last Friday, I'm looking for another job.
