Not good for me and hard to change back too! I need to get to bed about midnight tonight! Sun, 25 Jun 2017 23:16:23 EST Rainy days are hard to exercise on! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6378511 I have done some walking in place today but it is not so easy as walking to somewhere! I have always liked getting something done with my exercise instead of just getting heathy from it. Tomorrow should be a better day! Thu, 22 Jun 2017 21:43:56 EST Felt to bad to do much today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6377681 I wanted to go to the band concert in the park tonight but I just did not feel well enough to do it! I have not felt like this in a long time and it is odd as I am now on more antidepressant med than before! I think that it might be the med that is messing me up! Tue, 20 Jun 2017 23:42:52 EST Hard to get anything done some days! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6376785 To day I wanted to do many things and now it is after seven o'clock! I have done nothing but spark and reading! My day was wasted as far as I can see! Sun, 18 Jun 2017 20:09:51 EST Upping my meds is the word from Doctor! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6375734 I am starting tomorrow at 15 ml. and after four days I will go to 20 ml. That is twice the dose I have been on. Doctor said there was only a 50/50 chance for the lower dose to work, of course he said this today not last month when he put me on it! Fri, 16 Jun 2017 00:44:26 EST Lazy hot humid Sunday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6373820 I am just sitting around doing spark today! Wish the weather would change now instead of tomorrow. Gray skies are not happy making! Sun, 11 Jun 2017 17:06:31 EST Too hot to even think! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6373410 I did not put on a cool top for Mass today and will be uncomfortable I am afraid! It is over ninty degrees out today with some humidity to make it worse. No air conditioning in this house makes summer harder to life with! Sat, 10 Jun 2017 17:40:54 EST I like to fast three days a week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6373105 I have been doing this for over five years and it is habit for me! If I take a break from it I feel odd and find it hard to eat everyday. I stared this before I joined Spark People and the first team I joined was Alternate day fasting Friends of Dr. Johnson. IF is one of the newer ideas about diet to come along and many people are happy with it! So no need to worry when <BR> I say I will be fasting until dinner as it is not hard for me! Fri, 9 Jun 2017 22:01:02 EST Ate too much today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6371883 I had a plan for nice lowish calorie day but then I started eating all sorts of sweeties! Peanut M&M's are so easy to over eat! My stomach is over full and gassy! I feel like a baby that has colic! Tomorrow is no food until dinner so that will help. God bless everyone! Wed, 7 Jun 2017 00:03:58 EST Had books from the library that I own! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6371407 It can be hard to remember that you have books that you want to read. Last night I found a lot of books that I had forgotten! Glad to have them as they are very good books! Mon, 5 Jun 2017 22:32:48 EST Depressed is not fun! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6370781 Feeling so bad is not making my life easy and my weight is up with the way I am eating with my depression. It would be easier if I had no hunger with my depression but I always think that sweets will make me feel better! That does not work but depression makes you think it will. Sun, 4 Jun 2017 16:44:18 EST Hot Saturday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6370360 I wanted to get moving early today but it is so hot that I am going to take my time and do little! Mass is a must and I need to get there early as I will be a lector tonight. Sat, 3 Jun 2017 14:12:36 EST New insurance is OK with my dentist! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6369258 The last insurance I had was not something the dentist I saw would take but my new one is! Still need to get permission before doing work on my missing tooth but better than paying for it all on my own. This is the dentist my youngest sister goes to so he was willing to see me without good insurance! Wed, 31 May 2017 23:27:15 EST Broken jump ropes! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6367412 Trying to put one back together and it is a pain!!! Sat, 27 May 2017 19:22:54 EST Candy has a hold on me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6367111 My tax return had me buying stuff that I had not had for months including candy! I still want to get my weight under control so just might have to not eat as much as I have been! Sat, 27 May 2017 00:32:30 EST Paid the dentist today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6365431 I even have an appointment to see him next week. I am missing a front tooth and he will make a new one for me! It will be nice to have a good smile again. I am still not sure of what will be happening on my mental health front, I need testing to see what is really wrong. My cousin is going to help with getting me an appointment for this. Tue, 23 May 2017 00:50:25 EST No job or move in the near future! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6363666 My nefew is not moving back in with his mother after all. So I can stay longer here with my sister. I need to do more house work and not complain so much! My family is not as messed up as most families are, but we do have our own troubles! Thu, 18 May 2017 19:09:21 EST Feeling cold today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6361167 It is over seventy degrees and I am cold! This is just so strange as I have fasted on a blood donation in the past with no trouble. It is 74 inside the house and still I am cold! Fri, 12 May 2017 20:53:42 EST Started my antidepressants yesterday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6360274 The pharmasist said that this med takes four to six weeks to work, not what I wanted to hear! The sooner the med helps me the better as I need to get things done! Lots of side effects with this med but as I am starting on a very low dose I should not have trouble. Wed, 10 May 2017 17:45:35 EST I am just depressed! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6359915 I feel like it should be more but the doctor said it is just depression and gave me a prescription to help the me have more energy! I need a job so I can have a place of my own to live. I wish I had a large amount of money to live off of! God will help me I know! Tue, 9 May 2017 21:39:37 EST Nothing day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6357774 I did not get anything done today that I wanted to do. Maybe tomorrow will be better for getting things done. I did help my sister with dinner tonight but that is not much! <em>496</em> Thu, 4 May 2017 21:53:23 EST Feeling blah! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6356847 I ment to go shopping today but instead I just sat around and did nothing! I need to do better at taking care of my needs! Life is just overwhelming me now. I hope the county worker I see next week will know just what is wrong with me. God bless and keep all of you who read my blog! Tue, 2 May 2017 21:40:33 EST Mental Health care from county! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6356214 I am having a hard time getting myself into the system for care from the county. I do have an appointment for Tuesday, May 9, 2017 so that is good! Sometimes it can take weeks before they will see you. My cousin has been helping me as she has much experience with the county. <BR> <BR> <em>24</em> Mon, 1 May 2017 15:42:21 EST Doctor's appointment tomorrow! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6354083 I am not sure if my problems are physical or mental but the doctor is the first step to finding the answers! My family has a long history of mental problems so it is quite likely that I have one too. I hope that I can get some help quickly. Wed, 26 Apr 2017 23:42:28 EST Friday deals at the grocery store! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6351798 I got $1.00 frozen meals and $.99 Pepsi I was happy to get things for less! Sat, 22 Apr 2017 00:56:29 EST Easter Tuesday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6350376 I like to think in terms of the church's old way of talking about the year! Easter lasts many weeks acourding to the church! Candy will be gone much sooner anyway! <em>494</em> <em>449</em> Tue, 18 Apr 2017 21:34:28 EST Easter Vigil Mass! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6349879 Saturday evening mass was long but good! 4 adult baptisms happened at that mass so it was even longer than it would have been normally for Easter Vigil Mass! Mon, 17 Apr 2017 20:02:01 EST Good Friday Mass! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6348610 Longer than a normal mass but very nice with some very good singing from the choir! I had a walk after mass and I fasted all day today! I do not feel hungry so I will not eat any dinner after all! Fri, 14 Apr 2017 20:58:20 EST Had an interview this morning! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6348120 I am happy that I got to the bus in time and found the office with only about eight blocks of unnecessary walking. I was still early for my apiontment so it was good. The man that interviewed me had no jobs open now but is hopeful that something will open soon! A 9:30 bus is not easy for me to get but I did it today! I can get up early in the morning if I have to it is just hard for new. Thu, 13 Apr 2017 18:45:32 EST It can be hard to find work! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6345801 I am feeling desperate about a job and a place to live! I have not had this kind of challenge before in my life. I trust in God to help me but I still feel sick to my stomach over this! Sat, 8 Apr 2017 23:54:15 EST No job to go back to! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6345326 My boss said I could go back after a two month break but she changed her mind. Monday will be a job center day! Tuesday is a class on job hunting so that will be good! Fri, 7 Apr 2017 22:24:27 EST Got over that headache! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6343915 I am happy to say that the headache went away over night. That happens for me often just not always! It is nice to live in Minnesota where free medical insurance is available for the poor! Thanks for the good wishes and good health to all! Tue, 4 Apr 2017 22:51:42 EST Sinus headache tonight! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6342490 Not sure what brings one on but that is the only kind of headache I get! Hope this one goes away by tomorrow but sometimes they stay for a sinus infection! I will see a doctor if this is still here on Monday. Hope everyone else is doing well tonight! Sun, 2 Apr 2017 00:24:15 EST Got up too early today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6339821 I don't normally do this but today I wock up at about 3 am and could not sleep any more! Tonight will be an early sleeping night! I will have dinner soon so I will not have indesgestion tonight! If I eat within three hours of trying to sleep I have lots of trouble with indesgestion! Mon, 27 Mar 2017 17:07:21 EST Boxes all over my room make it hard to tidy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6335965 I have been try to tidy my room for weeks and still it is a mess! I need to do more about it but it is hard with so little space to move around in! With warmer weather coming I might be able to do more, but I am not sure about that. Mon, 20 Mar 2017 18:48:32 EST Daylight savings time is hard to take! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6332003 I had not considered how hard it could be to change times, but it can kill you! I did not get enough sleep last night so this morning was less then happy, but I got to church in time to do the volunteer work I had signed up for! Tonight I am sleepy and it is still light out! Sun, 12 Mar 2017 20:06:10 EST Reading political news is boring! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6330572 I have never much cared for political news so I quess that makes sense! Trump is going to cut the money for urban renewal so I will need to move fast on the section 8 application! Fri, 10 Mar 2017 00:11:51 EST Does anyone know about section 8 housing support? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6330007 I am only working part time and my sister needs me to move out soon! I hope section 8 will be of some help to me. I know that it can take a long time to get section 8 help but the sooner the better for me! June first is not so far off and that is the date I need to be gone by. Wed, 8 Mar 2017 22:11:32 EST Snow tonight and tomorrow! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6320580 It has been so warm that it almost seemed like spring! Luckily the plants did not think that it was time to grow. I like snow better than rain but I will probably not go outside tomorrow except to shovel the sidewalks! Thu, 23 Feb 2017 22:25:25 EST Being sick is no fun! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6316141 Today my tummy is upset along with the flue coughing that is the main thing. I hate an upset tummy. It is nice my sister has her cast off now so she can cook instead of me, flue and cooking do not work well together! Tue, 14 Feb 2017 19:26:44 EST Enchiladas are easier to time! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6312598 Even with making our own tortillas this was easier to get on the table. Getting it into the oven was not smooth but not too bad. I even made the enchilada sauce from scratch. This is something my sister has made often in the past but this was my first time making it! We used leftover chicken breast meat in the enchiladas and used up some cheese that was getting old. I would like to eat some tomorrow but that would be hard on a fasting day! Tue, 7 Feb 2017 23:32:56 EST Gilmore Girls! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6311409 The last show from the year in the life of the Gilmore Girls left me wanting more! I hate when a show leaves you in the middle of something and not at the end. This way you came imagine any ending that you want; but I would rather see what the author had in mind! Sun, 5 Feb 2017 20:41:56 EST Cooking dinner is hard to time! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6310950 I still find it hard to get everything to be done at the same time! I was good at this when I did the cooking all the time but that was year's ago and I am not cooking every day even now. Tonight was fried chicken breasts, cream gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans and corn, so it was a bit hard to make everything done at the same time! The potatoes kept in the microwave on defrost until the other things got done! Not the worst dinner I have made but I was not calm about it. Sat, 4 Feb 2017 22:53:29 EST Headache still with me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6310370 I started today with a small headache that I hoped would go away but it has just gotten worse. I need to take some medicine soon for this. Fri, 3 Feb 2017 19:39:26 EST Points are hard to accumulate! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6309196 This is mostly for points, but also I have been eating more than I should on the days I do not fast. I am planning to not fast for the last two weeks of February! That might help me get back to controlled eating after wards. I did not stop fasting at Christmas as I have in the past so it is not too surprising that I am a bit tired of dieting. Lifestyle is sparks way of thinking on this but I need a break! Wed, 1 Feb 2017 17:45:25 EST Mulan 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6307009 I just watched it and I enjoyed this movies very much! I know it was panned but that does not stop me from liking the movie. I might not see it again for a some time but it was good! Sun, 29 Jan 2017 00:07:58 EST Counciling for a problem I have getting places on time! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6305275 Mostly it is work that I have not been getting to on time and on the days I said I would! I also need to tidy my room the Konmari way! I read her book and she is very Japanese but her ideas can be used by others. Tomorrow will be clothes sorting for me! Wed, 25 Jan 2017 20:51:39 EST Getting to bed early tonight! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6303311 This might be hard to arrange but I need to be up early tomorrow so I must go to bed early. I have a resume writing class tomorrow and will not be late for it. God bless everyone! Sun, 22 Jan 2017 19:48:20 EST Fasting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6300929 I fasted today with little green tea, in the past I have had a lot of green tea on my fasting days! I did not have any fiber supplement or vitamins today. Water and apple cider vinegar then a banana with peanut butter on a low calorie flatbread plus some Kashi Go Lean cereal with apple and almond milk. About 475 calories today and that is just the wayI like my fasting days to end! Wed, 18 Jan 2017 20:01:54 EST I need to do more! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6296852 I get up and do nothing for hours! I need to take care of stuff not goof off. Thu, 12 Jan 2017 16:48:06 EST
