Fooooood and Rain
I wavered with the gym. The rain here is awful. It was hard to see even with the windshield wipers on at their fastest. Driving was a little scary, but I made it okay to the gym parking lot. I circled for a spot, like I normally do. As I st... Read more
Quick One - Advice Needed
I have a head cold. I have a pressure headache, my nose is stuffy, I'm sneezing. My throat hurts a little. I coughed once.
I think I read somewhere that you can exercise with a head cold, just that you shouldn't with a chest cold. So I'... Read more
I figured I needed a vacation.
And I have been working a lot. But not that much, in the grand scheme of things. What with my shortened hours at my day job last month, I suppose I was only working 42 hours a week. With regular hours back ... Read more
How Sammy Becomes SparkPeople Relevant...
After my last blog, my husband had to take Sammy to the cardiology department at the clinic where the ER is based, because they couldn't tell if there was fluid in his chest at the regular doctor. Sammy has a heart murmur, and I guess that made... Read more
Not Out of the Woods
My husband just took Sammy to the regular vet. He's not sleeping, he's not breathing quite right (which they noted at the ER, but thought was probably anxiety), and he's whimpering, which he never does. After I left this morning, husband calle... Read more
This'll be short, but I didn't want to just comment on the other blog in case someone who cared didn't check back at it.
I spoke with the doctor, and he told me that Sammy is moving around on his own. They took him off the seizure medicati... Read more
The Absolute Worst Night of My Entire Life...
started really nicely. I spent the evening celebrating a friend's birthday at another friend's house. Lots of talk, lots of laughter.
I came home, put my food into the tracker (that wasn't good), and announced I was taking Sammy outside, ... Read more
Since I started working my second job, I've also started working on how to balance everything that goes on in my life. To do this, I had to find a framework, and I did, in Suze Orman's motto:
"People first, then money, then things."
S... Read more
Just Felt Like Writing a Little...
These are just rambles. Move on, nothing to see here.
I'm tired, and I'm bummed out, because I have to work AGAIN tomorrow morning from 2-4. I normally work M-W, but my supervisor keeps adding Thursday in ALL THE TIME, and I email her and... Read more
Cryptic Statuses Explained...
I know that I've posted some status updates recently that weren't very informative, and perhaps, they may even have been enticing in their mystery. I've been wanting to blog about this situation since it first erupted (Oh, God) four days ago, b... Read more
Cups of water yesterday. Holy geez.
I wish it were water week on 5% Challenge!
So, apparently, that's what happens when I quit drinking soda. I drink an aquarium of water. And for substitutes, if I get tired of water, I just don't d... Read more
I haven't gotten the headache.
I've been off the aspartame for three days. After one full day, I expected to have the terrible headache I'd gotten in the past when I was unwittingly off aspartame.
I can't imagine wh... Read more
I think I'm ready.
I've been planning for the last several days to quit diet soda. I told my husband to not buy any more Diet Dr. Pepper, because I lose all control when I see it. So I've been drinking his soda since. I had two on Monday... Read more
An ounce of prevention...
I have every intention of going to the gym today. I really do!
I have a new book to start on the bike, and I read the back before I got out of the car this morning, and it looks supremely interesting. I took a day off yesterday from wor... Read more
Today, I worked toward making Freddie's rockin' world go 'round.
Oh, my God.
I went on the biggest carbo-binge in history today. It started with my boss. He fed us today, in a general sense. He gave us bagels today, and before I kne... Read more
