Wow. I have been away from SparkPeople for a couple of months, really just checking in once or twice, and I would like to say thank you to everyone who has left really nice comments on my page.
I'm quite blown away.

It's been quite an interesting few weeks. Just before leaving for a week long vacation with my husband's family, I got a new job. It's a new job, but an old one. When I first moved to BC, I had a job at the private liquor s... Read more
If you've read my last blog, you know that my FitBit has been acting up, and I have emailed their customer service.
I am very happy to report that they have shipped me a new one. In the meantime, I've been using his (we both got Flexes for... Read more
Fitbit or what?
So, yesterday (4/23) according to my Fitbit Flex, I didn't do any stepping what so ever during my entire 8 hour shift, plus when I went for a 45 minute walk on my lunch hour, it didn't track anything. This is 2 days in a row...... So, I have em... Read more
...is half of the challenge. The rest, is the journey!
You'd be so proud of me. Instead of having Kentucky Fried Chicken and all the trimmings, I had a Dole Chop Chop salad with some roasted chicken breast on it. Betcha I have saved myse... Read more
I've been looking back at my journey over the past 2 years. I've been (kind of) keeping track of my weight journey, and it's been a slow process. Intentionally.
I know that when I make these changes slowly, they become just a part of my... Read more
Well, it's been trying at work. Nuff said.
I'll be working as a cashier today, then back to the cut room for the next 2 (working alone in the room).
I've maintained my weight through all this. I'm really proud of myself, as I am an ... Read more

Shape up Challenge at work
Today was d-day.....I mean, weigh-day at work.
2 months ago, a bunch of us put $10 into a pool for 'Sobeys' Biggest Loser' weight-loss challenge.
It's been quite a difficult time for me, as I am an emotional eater... but for the most p... Read more
Just saw a good idea; do 25 pushups a day for 100 days. Don't know if I'll do it, but today I have. I did 25 bent knee pushups, and could barely do them.
I used to do pushups when I got frustrated (about 15 years ago or so). At one point... Read more
So yesterday at work, for some unforseen reason, I cut my thumb pretty bad on the pineapple coreer.
I didn't think it was that bad.
Then there was no first aid attendant at work, so as a team, we all decided that Alana should 'go get i... Read more
I have made a decision. After much debate and discussion with my husband, I have informed the store owner that I no longer want to get shifts in the cut room. I have also let him know that I also would like less hours, as I have not been progr... Read more

Weekend for me
Today and tomorrow are my weekend this week. (March 10 & 11)
Gonna go do some dictations. I'm 1 dictation away from completing the Endocrine system. What that means, is I'm officially 1/2-way done my year long course. I've taken a year ... Read more
hmmm, what do I call this one? Gearing Up?
Hi everyone. Sitting here, after my shift as a cashier, contemplating getting ready for bed. It was a good day today. Working as a cashier for a Seniors' Day at the local grocery store. Not as busy as I'd hoped; the busier it is, the faster ... Read more
