Friday, May 22, 2015      1 comments

This has been an incredibly difficult week! One of my co-workers just up and walked out Tuesday at 11:30, leaving an already stressed out, over worked department of 3 in the lurch. Now down to just two of us, I have been working just short of 1... Read more

A better day than I could have hoped for!

In spite the very cranky start to my morning, I had a pretty good day! I walked on both my breaks and stayed well within my calorie range, even with the additional calories from my walks. I am completely satiated, and still had 409 calories left... Read more

I woke up cranky and negative this morning, which I absolutely hate! I didn't sleep well (it was too warm) and I tossed and turned all night. Nothing I read this morning is inspiring me, and I'm in one of those dreadful "what's the point" frame... Read more

Somewhere early in the week, something apparently clicked. I stayed within my calorie range all week. I turned down all the offers for snacks, bites, and nibbles from my friend who works next to me. I'm rather surprised to find I was determine... Read more

I had a fantabulous, splendiferous time at the Highland Games! My friend and I wore ourselves out. The opening ceremony had me in tears. There were several pipe and drum bands participating, I would guestimate 150-200 pipers. I was in tears from... Read more

It is amazing what a difference a great night's sleep can do! I even slept in until 6! Now I am getting ready for the highland games and a day spent in sunshine and fresh air. I'm beyond excited. I hope everyone has a spectacular day! BE k... Read more

Well, I’m sitting in my room in my comfy pjs trying to relax after a rough couple of days. One of my friends at work is subject to seizures and unfortunately she had one yesterday afternoon. I sit directly across from her and turned at t... Read more

Well, last week started with bang and ended with a whimper (and some tears). I tripped on the way from the car to the office…2 bruised (to the bone) knees, scrapped up elbow and bruised palm. Honest to goodness, no wonder my knees are so frac... Read more
