New month, new goals

Sunday, September 30, 2012      4 comments

I've been up 2 lbs. and down 2 lbs. for what seems like forever. I want to work on building consistency in October, especially in the area of exercise. I was in such great shape a few years back and able to do a lot of exercise. Now that I'm so ... Read more

We picked Jake up at the shelter right after my daughter got her driver's license. We wondered if it would be hard to convince him to jump in the car. Before the thought was... Read more

2 days at Mayo Clinic with my daughter

Wednesday, May 02, 2012      8 comments

My daughter, who is 27, has tried several cholesterol meds over the last few months. She's had many side effects or they haven't lowered her cholesterol enough. It's a family thing with lots of early heart attacks & deaths. I've blogged about th... Read more

Job decision made

Wednesday, March 28, 2012      10 comments

I met with my special ed. director today and told her I had decided to stay in my current school and take the position with students with behavior disorders. I've received a lot of support while making this decision. I could wait a couple of mon... Read more

Back to work tomorrow

Spring break is coming to an end. We couldn't have asked for a better week to have off. It was in the high 70's and low 80's most of the week. I got food prepped for the week and spent a couple hours at school today getting organized. Hubby and ... Read more

Doing fairly well in the nutrition and exercise department. I've lost 10 lbs. since I "started over'. The scale has bumped up a little this week but that may be because I'm back into lifting weights. I'm not going to stress over it because my ea... Read more

Tough workout, but I did it

Saturday, February 04, 2012      6 comments

I had a great week on the nutrition front and a good week on the exercise front. The results, a 1 lb. gain. I'll be 53 in a couple days and the weight goes up and down instead of just down. I've never had this problem before. Frustrating, but I ... Read more

Good start to the week

I started my morning meeting with my principal for my evaluation. It went really well. One of my students who has come so far this year reached one of his behavior goals and we can now drop it. What a big accomplishment for him! It was a gorg... Read more

Test results :)

Friday, January 27, 2012      14 comments

I got a call from the Drs office today. They said I had a normal stress test which means there are no arteries where the flow is restricted. She also said the heart muscle is working well. For now I just need to continue to lose the weight and e... Read more

Test done, waiting on results

I had my stress test this afternoon. I haven't worked out consistently in a long while (up until 3 weeks ago) so I figured it would be tough. I had to get my heart rate to 150 which wasn't a big deal at all. They like you to go above that number... Read more

Stress Test Tomorrow

Wednesday, January 25, 2012      5 comments

I think I was so stressed out from Monday's appt. that I misspoke here. I'm not in the 90th percentile to have a heart attack, but I'm that likely to have plaque. It still holds that there could be blockages up to 90%. The stress test tomorrow w... Read more

A Big Thank You

Tuesday, January 24, 2012      6 comments

I was teary eyed this morning as I checked Spark and saw all the well wishes from my Spark friends. It reminds me how difficult it is to explain what this site is all about when people ask about it. Yes, it's a supportive community to help us lo... Read more

I feel like a ticking time bomb

Monday, January 23, 2012      19 comments

The Dr. said I've gone from a 10th percentile to the 90th percentile as far as the chance of having a heart attack. Not good. I'm already on a lot of medications so that's not really an option. He said to lose the weight again, exercise consiste... Read more

Appointment tomorrow

Sunday, January 22, 2012      9 comments

It's been a good week nutrition wise and a pretty good week exercise wise. Once I got my calcium scoring test back, eating junk lost it's appeal. I'm building up the exercise because I've let myself get so out of shape. It will take some time, b... Read more
