Woke up--thought it was Monday! Not! I am fighting some body pain--across shoulders and upper back and also whole legs. It has been going on now for a week. Ice packs, massage machine, stretching, relaxation..... nothing has worked! ... Read more

I am struggling with that mantra. Today was rough at work. I am home trying to relax. I probably should light the (gas) fireplace and put on some pleasant music. I sure need a lift! ... Read more
Tue. Now what?
Tuesday, November 30, 2010      3 comments

I succumbed to having 2 Wendy's (single) baconators today for dinner. At 600 calories each, that is a lot! But not as bad as I have been in the past. Breakfast and lunch were fine. To get my fruit in today, I need to have so... Read more

I am dreading the first snowfall. I know it will be worse back home near Buffalo, NY. But it gets very cold here in Connecticut, too. The fall weather has been wonderful. I will miss it. The dark evenings do not help keep me energetic when I ar... Read more
