It was really nice. Beautiful day, crisp afternoon air, walking and talking with a buddy. <BR> <BR> I have had a foot injury and in the interest of not further exacerbating the injury, I decided to turn back at the 3/4 mile mark so the 4 of us hung out for a while and chatted each other up a bit. I had found out that 2 of the people who I was walking with both had had some variant of a gastric bypass. One had just been disc...

I met up with some of my favorite people and went to San Francisco for a day to meet yet another one of my favorite people for lunch, and whatever else our day fancied. <BR> <BR> As one is wont to do in San Francisco, we walked a bit. Now, I'm just starting this journey again, and walking is one of the things I need to get rolling again. Well today took care of that. We had a wonderful ... Sat, 5 Jan 2013 00:45:52 EST Slow they say... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5187407 So, when losing weight, it's almost always said nowadays, to go slow. <BR> Don't make any sudden moves (change habits too quickly) and be mindful of your choices. <BR> <BR> Well, that's what I'm doing. After 2 days, I had the same bad breakfast, a much healthier lunch today, and a salad... <BR> <BR> My numbers are exactly what I'd expect them to be. Over yesterday, and within my parameters today. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/1/l21630819.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Be MIND... Thu, 3 Jan 2013 01:45:30 EST One more time with 'flair'... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5184124 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/7/l177213276.jpg">So, <BR> Here I am again. It's been a year. I did a lot this year. I beat myself up a lot, the family home was sold, my sister died, I hadn't even gotten over mom dying in 2011 so a lot of loss and grief and crying and eating and depression. I didn't sink down the hole, but I got stuck a lot. <BR> <BR> My weight yo-yo'd and I'm still not where I want to be, so I am here again to get moving like I want to. <BR> <BR> A... Tue, 1 Jan 2013 14:51:00 EST "The End" and a trip.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3844575 So, Hairspray ended this weekend. We sold out every performance and it was amazing and awesome and was the event that forced me forward into my future. 12 performances in 9 days. Yes, that's right. Needless to say, my body is wracked. I am blessed and happy, and amazingly exhilarated to see how my future unfolds. <BR> <BR> During this run, my voice hadn't been at 100% and had to sing with swollen vocal cords, hoarseness, and had to use my vocal techniques to get through. I'm glad it... Tue, 14 Dec 2010 23:12:17 EST Frustrating... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3837934 As I learn the errors in my eating ways, I also find that some of the physical things that I do is no way to track in Fitness Tracker. This is, of course, probably not unique to anyone, but I suppose, I just have to learn the ways around it. Though I haven't put myself on any diet, I can TOTALLY see that this really may be the right place for me to be. I have been resistant to any sort of food journaling for years. Thinking some ridiculous thing about...whatever. My past fears are unimpo... Sat, 11 Dec 2010 12:26:21 EST Ok. OK. I get it...I get it...*sigh* http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3837054 2 days in a row...I see what's going on. I have good carbs, good daily protein. Hmmm...where do I need improvement? Hmmm...Let's see. Hmmm...Fat?? Yup. <BR> Grrr...Ok. I get it. <BR> <BR> And I have to lay off the (Blue Diamond) almonds. Fri, 10 Dec 2010 21:10:42 EST Discovering my weaknesses... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3833436 So, I'm officially on day 3 of being a member of SparkPeople. I am finding that old habits are hard to break. I am still working on getting rid of the incessant snacking in between meals, and if it has to be incessant snacking, that it be a celery stick, or an apple or something. My choices need to improve. It's a learning experience to be sure, but reading and being responsible for writing down what I'm eating does, in fact, make a huge difference in my wanting to improve my choices... <... Thu, 9 Dec 2010 01:43:20 EST So... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3830708 ...here we go. I've been ignoring the signs for a long time. I've had to go to my PCP 3 different times in the past 6 months for minor issues (laryngitis, referrals, etc) and each time, I gained 10 pounds between visits. *Sigh* <BR> <BR> Lemme give you a proper introduction first. I'm Juanita, a vocalist, actor, just starting my vocal studio, and continuing my dream to make a living through music. Go ahead and tell me I'm taking a risk. I know this. And thank (your favorite diety here... Tue, 7 Dec 2010 20:26:36 EST
