Still resting back and taking lots of ibuprofen. We only got about 6" of snow and it melted on the streets and sidewalk so I didn't have to shovel. Tomorrow should be even warmer, so must get out for a walk. Loaded the dishwasher tonight and ... Read more

It's snowing. At least I got in a 3 mile walk before the weather got bad. Unfortunately my back is still a problem, so I'll just have to keep walking for now. That and taking lots of ibuprofen. DH installed a new heater in the hot tub, but i... Read more

I survived Friday the 13th. Historically Friday the 13th is a really bad day for me. Today I only popped my back out, and not enough to land me in bed. I made it a rest day to avoid further damage to the back. Very annoying though, because i... Read more

What a day. Stepped up into my truck this morning and felt like I got stabbed in the butt, left side fortunately, so was able to accelerate and brake with my right. Had to drive the 1 ton dualie all day because my car has a clutch. Went with... Read more

Another day, some good, some bad. 20 minutes of Biggest Loser on Wii, 20 minutes of circuit training and 30 minutes on the exercise bike. There were negatives though. Planned to keep calories around 1132, but hit 1214. Worse, sodium was at ... Read more

Pretty good day today. Did two 25 minute sessions with Biggest Loser on the Wii. Stayed in calorie range, 9 glasses of water, but only got 8,000 steps. Pulled an ab muscle, so skipped strength training tonight. Hot tub heater arrived today, ... Read more

1 year anniversary

Friday, October 23, 2009      7 comments

It's been a year and I'm still here. Didn't come close to meeting my weight loss goal, only lost 10 pounds. So why am I still here? I'm a failure. At least that's what I would have thought before I joined Spark People. Now I focus on taking... Read more

The Huddle Wall

Wednesday, July 29, 2009      3 comments

I just realized today that the Huddle Wall is more closely linked to how I feel than I realized. Sometimes is seems like a chore to get 5 points, sometimes it's a way to check on friends and then for a while, most of my comments were Make It Ha... Read more

Happy Earth Day!

Thursday, April 23, 2009      2 comments

Beautiful weather for Earth Day. Walked to the pharmacy to save a car trip and didn't eat any meat today. I also didn't get enough protein today, so a vegetarian lifestyle would require a lot more work on my part. I'm just not ready for any m... Read more

Over medicated

Saturday, April 04, 2009      3 comments

Got sick and felt awful for about a week. But then I just couldn't seem to get my energy back and I craved chocolate. I wasn't depressed, just lethargic. Finally I decided to cut back on Lexapro, an antidepressant. Wow, what a difference. I... Read more

Bootcamp Progress

Thursday, January 22, 2009      2 comments

I'm amazed that I've been able to do all of the bootcamp workouts without breaking anything. I'm incredibly stronger too. My doctor was very impressed when I saw him on Monday. He told me to keep up the good work and that's what I'm doing. Y... Read more
