Hanging on Tight

Friday, September 07, 2012      1 comments

My daughter

Thursday, September 06, 2012      2 comments

Two days ago my children and I went for our annual pre-school eye exams. I was called in the back by the concerned doctor. She said that she saw something in my daughter's retina that she'd never seen before in anyone. She gave us a referral... Read more

Too busy

We're getting ready for school. It starts Monday. I am way too busy right now! The stress makes me achy. And it makes it hard to wind down at night and go to sleep. But I'm getting things done. I'm not tracking my food this week though. A... Read more

September Goals -

Tuesday, September 04, 2012      1 comments

It is a new month and time for new goals. The thing is, while I met most of my goals for the summer except for my goal for 3 hours of gardening a week, I didn't progress at all in losing weight. I feel depressed putting down the same goals of ... Read more

My Evil Plan Worked

Sunday, September 02, 2012      1 comments

Thursday Thoughts

Thursday, August 30, 2012      1 comments

Magnesium and stretching got me over yesterday's abdominal "charley horse". Today is a much better day. Which is good, because we're having a yard sale tomorrow and the next day. My 10 year old daughter is doing the bulk of the work. W... Read more

Wednesday Whimperings

Wednesday, August 29, 2012      2 comments

Today is a sucky day. Stop reading now if you only want rainbows and sunshine. My muscles like to cramp randomly. If they cramp, it is in a deathgrip that is only released after days of anti-inflammatories, extra magnesium, and stretching... Read more

Tuesday Twitterings

After one week of camp food and no planned exercise (but lots of walking back and forth), I only gained one pound! Today's health goals: Eat clean. It is already 3:15 and I've already bombed on this goal because my daughter tried ou... Read more

Sleep

Monday, August 27, 2012      2 comments

After camp, you should have seen how tired all the camp staff were. Kids were pretty tired too. I have been sleeping, and sleeping and sleeping whenever I can. I know from doing some reading, that sleep is a busy time for your brain and... Read more
