Recently I've been making some very positive changes in my life and I wanted to write some of them down to help me remember them and stay motivated.
The 2 main things I wanted to record today:
1. On Tuesday, my boss, Deanna, called me ... Read more
Wednesday May 28
I slept too late to walk early this morning, unfortunately.
So tonight after work I went to the pool immediately, so I wouldn't procrastinate and get lazy. Because there were several families there this time, I was very self-conscious - so ... Read more
Tuesday May 27
Got 10 minutes of walking in this morning. I'm planning for 20 minutes of water walking and swimming tonight after work.
Last night I joined a team that seems doable and helpful - amazingly the team leader responded within a very short peri... Read more
Monday May 26
Today I decided I'd better get off my rear and do some swimming. There's a pool in my apartment complex, so near the end of the day today I walked down there. I haven't been in a swimming pool, or a bathing suit, for at least 2 years. I waited t... Read more
I Need A Shot Of Motivation!
Okay, so I've been kind of struggling some lately, and I decided to give myself a shot of motivation. Since my Dad died and all the activity connected with that subsided, I guess I've felt kind of blah and like "is this all there is to my life?"... Read more
Weekend Is Almost Over
Well the weekend is almost over and I didn't accomplish very much.
I planned to do several things that I didn't do, and I guess that happens more often than it should. For some reason I'm sort of feeling at loose ends a lot of the time. I g... Read more
The New Spark Book
I finally received the new Spark book in the mail a few days and ago and I've been eagerly "devouring" it. I finally finished it yesterday and it really motivated me. I was motivated before, but didn't have a concrete plan to follow, but now I d... Read more
Last night I went online and finally used a gift card from Barnes & Noble and bought the new Spark book. (A friend gave me the card about 4 years ago, and it's taken me that long to find a book that I really wanted to buy. I just love free libra... Read more
I Did It!
Well it might not sound like a huge accomplishment to anyone else, but today I did a GREAT job with sticking to my food plan at lunch!
As I mentioned yesterday, at lunchtime today a group of us had planned to go out to eat, and I wanted to ... Read more
Well I'm finally doing what I should have done long ago - tracking what I eat. I'm basically a lazy person, and I'm also forgetful, so tracking is really an effort for me.
To make it easier, I'm making myself a good breakfast and packing my... Read more
Wow, a lot has happened in my life since the last entry I made!
I went back to California a couple days after my last blog entry, and continued taking care of Dad until he passed away. When I got back to California he was SO MUCH worse that... Read more
Finally Home (Exhausted)
Yesterday I flew home from California. I was in California for 3 weeks (much longer than the 3 days I originally intended) taking care of my father. Coincidentally, the day before I flew out to see him, he was hospitalized with a severe lung inf... Read more
April 14, 2013
I'm not doing so hot lately. Part of it is that I'm a bit stressed - and sadly I've turned to food to cope. (Instead of exercise, which would have been a healthier coping mechanism!)
I got a call a few days ago from one of my father's neigh... Read more
April 9, 2013
I spent most of last night last night in the ER with one of my oldest daughters. We had a scary ambulance ride to the hospital and everything. She's okay now, and life is back to normal, thankfully.
I have slacked off a little on my walkin... Read more
April 6, 2013
Yuck, I've been sick and miserable for several days. I was pretty much just sleeping for the last 2 days so I didn't go walking. But today I'm getting out there and at least walking slowly if nothing else. I don't want to feel like I'm failing w... Read more
