Dream a little dream...or two

Thursday, May 30, 2013      3 comments

I don't usually remember my dreams, but last night I had two that I was able to remember this morning. First, let me say...I tossed and turned all night last night...woke up once and all of the pillows were on the floor, the comforter was hangi... Read more

Looking beyond the pain

Friday, May 17, 2013      5 comments

This week has been...well...not so good. I missed two days of work because of pain. I did force myself to go in today despite waking up in terrible pain. I soaked in the tub (hot, hot water) for a while and that helped a bit. Thank goodness,... Read more

Breathing tests

Thursday, May 09, 2013      2 comments

Today was the day I had to go back to the pulmonology department and take part in a breathing test....they were testing me for asthma, having ruled out things like COPD and emphysema. The doctor told me the test would take several hours and tha... Read more

Where has the time gone?

Sunday, May 05, 2013      3 comments

I can't believe how long it's been since I've blogged here at SP. Just so you know, that doesn't mean I haven't been writing...I just completed another NaNo event in April, I have a blog on wordpress, I'm working on my I've been busy,... Read more

Eating out

Tuesday, October 02, 2012      5 comments

I met my step sister today for lunch at Cracker Barrel...we had such a nice visit, got to catch up with one another, and enjoyed a good meal while we were at it. I ordered a salad that had roasted turkey, sweet potato crisps, dried cranberr... Read more

Kind of wanted pizza today

Saturday, September 15, 2012      6 comments

Yep, you heard that right. This afternoon, at work, I was thinking that a pizza sounded good. Thought I'd stop and pick one up on my way home, eat one piece for dinner (practicing my slow eating, stopping when I was full principles). That was... Read more

Crazy work hours...

Thursday, September 13, 2012      3 comments

...and how too little sleep messes with your best intentions. As I've mentioned before, I'm focusing on paying attention to when my body tells me it's hungry and when it's satiated...seems like that should be a simple thing to do, right? ... Read more

When I was starting on SP four years ago, I was afraid to take my measurements...who wants those numbers staring you in the face? But as I lost weight, I found myself wishing I'd been brave enough to have done it. I faced my fear,... Read more

Today was a struggle

Monday, September 10, 2012      6 comments

...just not in the way you might imagine. I couldn't sleep last night, ended up with just over two hours of sleep, then had to get up and go to work. Since I couldn't sleep, I decided to exercise before work this morning. Work was pleasant, ... Read more

Taking teeny tiny steps today...

Sunday, September 09, 2012      3 comments

Looking forward to tomorrow's start of my Naturally Slim program...stopped at WalMart today and bought a new stability ball...had to get a new one because my little six month old kitten punctured the other one...she's something, that's for sure.... Read more

Back in the saddle...

Saturday, September 08, 2012      5 comments

I can not believe how long it's been since I've checked in here at SP. And how much I've allowed myself to slip back into the same bad habits that first brought me here back in 2008. I now weigh more than I did when I first signed up. How in ... Read more

Yikes!! It's been quite a while since I've really had to interview for a promotion...but this is a district manager called me yesterday to ask if I'd be interested in taking over the store manager position in Springfield Illinois if... Read more

I think it's starting to become habit

Tuesday, January 10, 2012      8 comments

Oh cool is this?! I'm exercising every day, not a lot, but at least 10 minutes, just to get that habit established again. The exercise part was always easy (well, easier anyhow) part for me. The eating, on the other hand, that's a... Read more

One of those days

Monday, January 09, 2012      4 comments

Do you ever have one of those days when you wake up tired and just know the day isn't going to be one of your best? That's how I felt today. I didn't get enough sleep, had to be at work at 5 am, got there and Chris was late so I had to sit ou... Read more

Sleep interrupted

Saturday, January 07, 2012      4 comments

I went to bed not quite as early as I should have last night. I was only going to get 7 hours of sleep if I could sleep the entire night. And you've got to know that's not easy for me any more. Last night wasn't any different. I was star... Read more
