Day 4 of staying on track and it feels so good. Getting more creative on how to spend my calories and it's all healthy. And it's not like this is new information. LOL Fresh veggies from my garden and fruit at its peak all add up to a good ... Read more
Switching focus - 4/18/11
Well, blood results show the high end of normal for blood sugar. I often hear stories of people who change their diets and this improves. Not new information at all - I've been ignoring it. And the possibility of adding medication to my BP a... Read more
Can recommend a fun book to read - The Cinderella Pact by Sarah Strohmeyer. It's about a group of friends who are shunning in a restaurant and who embark on a weight loss journey, focusing on one's trials and tribulations with the stories of t... Read more
4.3.09 - Keepin' on
It's funny how I pay attention to stuff, or not. Like trying to be so mindful of what I eat, and when. I've been out of focus for awhile and that isn't just with my food plan but with everything. Feeling scattered might be a good word, too. ... Read more
Back From China 081016
I've returned from 2 weeks in China, volunteering at the panda research base in Bifengxiao (which is spelled wrong, I'm sure). So what did I learn? China is as magnifent as I thought it would be. And old. The Great Wall is a sight to beho... Read more
I've been so off kilter in blogging, although I have been tracking, albeit not as religiously as I should. I've just been so out of kilter since my mom died and dealing with those emotions, plus the issue of her being buried in the wrong plot... Read more
I just view the video of the man and his CP son. Then I opened my horoscope. Coincidence? I think not. So doay my mission is to find that little something that alters my thinking and impacts my life. Cool, eh?

6.20.08 - Exercise & Grief
I haven't written in some time, having gone through my mom's sudden illness and death. As if that wasn't enough, I've had to deal with the cemetary for the past 6 weeks because they buried my mom in the wrong plot - not even close to the plots... Read more

4.4.08 - My mom is dying
My mom was rushed to the hospital on Saturday after my dad returned home from Mass and found her slumped over the coffee table. She says she stumbled on her way to the couch after she had gone to the kitchen to get a glass of water, then fell a... Read more
3.27.08 - I knew it was a test!
Last week's weigh in demonstrated a 5 lb weight gain. How could that be?? Thinking back, there were some jellybeans involved, and a coconut egg or two - all of which were logged with a few days of higher than usual calories. But 5 lbs worth? ... Read more
3.24.08 - Back in da saddle!
Stepped on the unofficial office scale and the weight gain is gone. That was some kind of weird fluke - maybe to remind me that I need to walk the talk, eh?
I exercised this AM - first time in 2 weeks, since I cut my finger/stitches, a... Read more
3.20.08 - A big gain
Time to refocus - it happens. But I can't believe such a huge gain - 5 lbs. I wonder if I haven't been lowballing my entries?
Ok, time to refocus. And lay off the black jellybeans.
Here is my horoscope for today. While I'm not ... Read more
I was thinking this is great! I love to journal, although since this is public I don't think I would put my deepest darkest secrets here. It does give me an outlet tho and I like that.
For the anger things I used to write them down and... Read more
