Dream a little dream...or two
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
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
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?
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 book...so I've been busy,... Read more
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
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...
...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. Well...today I faced my fear,... Read more
Today was a struggle
...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...
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...
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
Starting interview process Monday for promotion
Yikes!! It's been quite a while since I've really had to interview for a promotion...but this is a biggie...my 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
Oh yeah...how 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
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
Last Page »
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
