Feeling good today!
I don't know what it is lately, but I've been on such an emotional roller coaster that half the time I don't know up from down. Today, despite all the questions and doubts, is a good day.
My weight loss has stalled - I refuse to call it a ... Read more
A third of the way through the year...and looking good
Well here it is, almost a full third of the way through the year, and I'm no further ahead than I was at the beginning of the year. My weight is about the same as it was in the beginning of January, having bounced up and down with the same 5 pou... Read more
Going the wrong way
I stepped on the scale this morning and had to scold it for going the wrong way! The darn thing insisted on going up, when it's supposed to be going down! The audacity of it!!
Exclamation points aside, it has been very disheartening this pa... Read more
Things have been rough for me lately. I've been battling some pretty significant depression, which leaves me listless, unmotivated, and inclined to eat junk. I'm just my calories have been way over my range pretty much every day, and my exercise... Read more
Getting back on track...again
Today I worked out in the morning for the first time in over two weeks. To be fair to myself, I've been very ill, with quite a bit of chest congestion, so even if I'd wanted to, I couldn't have worked out. Just walking up the stairs left me gasp... Read more
I woke up this morning with a headache that is well on it's way to becoming a full blown migraine. Yay me. Ah well, I'm toughing it out at work as long as I can.
I've been doing a lot of thinking lately, about so many things.
I've bee... Read more
Rough day, week, month, year....Being whiny!
I'm having a rough day today. This year has been one trial after another for me already, and I'm feeling very overwhelmed by it all today.
The year started out with one heck of a virus that knocked me on my backside for nearly two weeks. H... Read more
Getting back on track
I'm slowly figuring out this no dairy thing. I have become obsessive about reading the labels on food, not for the nutriotional information (although that is definitely still important to me), but for the far more important presence or absence o... Read more
2013...it can only get better from here...
I started out 2013 with a lovely cold. Ear infection, sore throat, sinus and chest congestion, you name it, I had it. It started on the 30th of December and got progressively worse until it peaked with the worst symptoms on the 2nd of January. I... Read more
Have a blessed Yule everyone!!
I'm so excited this holiday season. For a change! I'm looking forward to my holiday feast with my daughter tonight, and I'm excited that my SO is going to be spending part of the night with us, even though his... Read more
I was thinking the other day, as I often do while sweating through my morning workout on the treadclimber, about this fitness/health/weight loss journey that I'm on. On that particular day I was thinking about the 10 lb weight loss markers that ... Read more
It was -37C with the windchill this morning. That is just WAY too cold!! And the worst thing is, December is generally a good 10 degrees warmer than January around here. I'm not looking forward to next month at all!
The good news is that it... Read more
Yay for Monday!
I know it's just not normal...but I'm actually happy it's Monday!
My weekly weigh-in was down almost a pound; I managed to get a decent amount of sleep (although still nowhere close to the 8 hours they say you should get); and my knee was ... Read more
So I had my first appointment with the physiotherapist yesterday. She also thinks my doctor is a bit of a dipstick. Her stance is that he should have sent me to physio when I first starting having problems with my knee, because it could have sav... Read more
Taking things into my own hands...
After my angry rant yesterday about the medical profession here, I calmed down and decided to take things into my own hands. I called an made an appointment with a physiotherapist. Without a doctor's reference, physiotherapy is not covered by my... Read more
