Long Time Absent
Wow, I've been away from this site for a long time! Can't believe it's been 6+ years. A lot has changed in that time. My marriage got continually worse, my son quit speaking to either me or my husband. I have two grandchildren I've never met. It... Read more
Bod Pod Body Fat Results
Yesterday I went up to Peak Academy. It's a fitness/health measuring facility on the University of Utah campus and is apparently part of the physical fitness department, situated right in the middle of the soccer, baseball, basketball, football ... Read more
Better Late than Never!
I've been encouraged to write an update. Sorry I haven't been on SP very much lately. I have SO much going on in my life right now that something had to give before I lost what's left of my mind. So I have had to let a lot of things go that aren... Read more
Well, I guess if Jack can make a post once every TWO MONTHS (humph!) I can, too.
I have been SOOOOO busy I feel like I'm drowning. You take the already-packed days of winter and add in yard work, gardening, and other summer fun and you have... Read more
The Thin Edge of the Wedge
I'm letting my food sort of slide. I am so dang busy with 10,000 things that require my attention that I'm starting to wig out from the stress. Most of it is my own choosing, but I don't deal well with information overload. I have a friend who d... Read more
End of May
I can't believe it's the end of May already. I have to admit, I've been a bit of a slacker here at SP, but there are only so many hours in a day and I just can't do EVERYTHING, even though everybody in my life seems to think I SHOULD be able to... Read more
It's been a while since I updated, so I guess I should do that.
I've been doing good at the gym, working out and working hard 3X per week. I've been skipping cardio, though. I don't know why, just didn't feel like it. I'm still coughing a l... Read more
I made it to the gym today and met my workout partner there, so she kept me from wimping out. I don't know if that's good or not. I feel fine. I hope I still do tomorrow. Unfortunately, pollen is high again, and I still have a residual cough fro... Read more
Breathing and Coughing
I'm almost back to normal. This round of the crud has been the worst I've had in a long, long time. I think I'm about back to normal. My fever is about gone and I can at least breathe through my nose again. Everything has subsided into a slight ... Read more
Oh, Lay Me Down in Forest Lawn....
I'm trying to FORCE myself to be well again. I refuse to be sick. I hate it. I've always said that I'm too mean to be sick. Germs fear me! I may have to succumb next year and get a flu shot. I've never had one. I spent most of the day yesterday... Read more
Still Sick. Ugh
Ugh. This is the wost flu I've had in a long time. Kill me now! I've had a fever for three days (usually only lasts a day), and I actually stayed home from work and the gym today and spent most of the day in bed. I think I'll go back to bed now.... Read more
Well, crap. I'm officially sick. My temperature hit 100 today, and "normal" for me is around 97. I guess I'll blow off the gym (my workout partner called and can't make it anyway), stop at Walmart on my way home, and buy some drugs to make me fe... Read more
Today I decided to step down as co-team leader. I wasn't doing a very good job and the pressure of the responsibility was starting to get to me and was affecting my eating. I have gained back some of what I lost recently. I tend to be an "emotio... Read more
Roller Coaster Ride
I'm in the mood to moan about a few things. Woe is me and all that. But I'll refrain for a few days, as I suspect that I'm going into another emotional downswing, so I don't want to get my knickers in a twist and burn any bridges unnecessarily. ... Read more
Out of town
Sorry I haven't posted much. I'm currently out of town at my step-niece's wedding staying at my sister's house. Eating is okay. I treated myself to the ice cream/applie pie dessert they served at the wedding, but everything else was healthy and ... Read more
