Today I Leave for Vacation

Wednesday, September 17, 2014      3 comments

I will be seeing family members and having fun. I got really lucky in the family lottery, my siblings are people I love and respect. My parents are deceased, and because their families were small I have only one uncle left and then six half-cous... Read more

Most Days are a Mixed Bag

Friday, August 01, 2014      1 comments

Today my plans were to take a 1/2 day off work today, so I could use 2 two tickets to see the Shadowbox lunch show. I had the idea that this would not be expensive because I already had the tickets - but between both our lunches and the parking,... Read more

New day, fresh start

Tuesday, July 22, 2014      3 comments

I've been struggling with food, and yesterday I hardly walked at all, getting in about 1/3 my steps (just incidental walking). There were doughnuts, cookies, fruit, and cake at work. Although I ate only 1/2 a doughnut, I also had a piece of cake... Read more

I got to walk with my buddy!

Sunday, July 06, 2014      1 comments

I am very happy I got to walk with my buddy today. I am afraid I may have talked her ear off! I am lucky, she's pretty forgiving about that kind of thing. It's been a while since we were able to walk together. It really is a highlight of th... Read more

A successful day

Monday, June 23, 2014      2 comments

I tracked all my food, I walked, exceeded my steps goal (14295!), did a little weight workout, drank my water and I still can get to bed at a reasonable hour. At work I made progress on an old thing that's been bugging me that I haven't worked o... Read more

walking commitment

Sunday, June 22, 2014      5 comments

Well today I did not let excuses and changes of plans derail my walking commitment. I made it to 10,314 steps today! I also did some chores and some sewing. I wanted to dance, but with the spasm and my chronic knee issue, I just knew I had ... Read more

Back Spasms

Wednesday, June 18, 2014      1 comments

This morning before work my back started to spasm. This is my first time, and is very painful and scary. I took a couple of tylenol and a prescription anti-inflammatory, and headed off to work. While at work I called a masseuse and got an appoin... Read more

Green monster

Monday, June 16, 2014      1 comments

I find myself feeling jealous a lot. I am all over the map with this - I am jealous even in situations where the other person clearly does not have it "better" than me. That is, whatever they have that's different and good, but I never take into... Read more

Tired Sick

Monday, May 19, 2014      2 comments

I have had a stomach bug since Friday - I am so ready to be over it! I haven't been able to eat much, but really, who wants to lose weight by being sick? I missed the heck out of activities I planned, and now I need to figure out how to ca... Read more

Using Quotes as inspiration

Thursday, May 15, 2014      5 comments

Sometimes I find quotes inspiring, other times I find them - well sort of shallow and lazy. I ask myself, am I integrating quotes or just spouting them? If it's not going beyond finding and posting, it's probably the shallow and lazy thing. ... Read more


Thursday, February 20, 2014      6 comments

Well, I am moving in the right direction - I am down 4 pounds since January! What am I doing right? Eating real food mostly, and a moderate amount of exercise. I heard Chris Crowley speak, and I'm reading "Thinner This Year". I'll all abou... Read more

Weather and Cats

Sunday, January 26, 2014      4 comments

In spite of having the challenges with weather, (in Columbus Ohio - we are having snow and extreme cold) I'm moving in the right direction (down or stable). I am focusing on doing what I can from where I am right now. A few weeks ago we a... Read more

Reflections on Cancun

Wednesday, January 08, 2014      3 comments

Well, Cancun was fun and interesting. The outstanding parts were Chichen Itza and swimming with a trained dolphin. We were actually in Playa del Carmen at a resort. To some extent, being at a resort is like summer camp or Disney. Fun, sort of li... Read more

About to go on Vacation

Friday, December 13, 2013      5 comments

You won't see me Sunday through Saturday. I'm going to Cancun! In the meantime, I am trying to wrap up all my work and pack. That won't be me in the sun, I'll be in the shade with sunscreen so I won't get burned. Read more

Bad eating choices

Tuesday, December 10, 2013      3 comments

I started out ok, with yogurt, fruit, pb and a mini waffle - then I got to work. The big boss brought in "breakfast" - I had a asiago bagel and veggie cream cheese - and a salad at lunch. But then I had 1/2 a chocolate donut, then a honey donut,... Read more
