Oooohkay, then. I Just Don't Get It

Saturday, November 24, 2012      4 comments

I lost weight over Thanksgiving. I haven't exercised for four days. I was sitting for hours and hours and hours. I didn't overeat per se but the content of my meals was not the healthy food I normally have. At home I exercise hard five days... Read more

Finally Home

Friday, November 23, 2012      2 comments

Phew! What a trip! Over the river and through the woods has a whole different meaning after our 330 mile plus journey to my brother's house for Thanksgiving. On paper, the trip takes 6 hours and 9 minutes. In reality, the trip there to... Read more

Sitting on my Booty

Wednesday, November 21, 2012      4 comments

I realize that sitting is very convenient for some activities but lately there has been far too much of it. Last night my husband wanted to take me out to a movie. We haven't gone out alone in about 6 months and it was long overdue. Plu... Read more

Forty- nine

Monday, November 19, 2012      2 comments

The square of 7. The atomic number of indium. Part of the name of gold prospectors during the gold rush. Part of the name of SF's football team. Alaska's position in the state line-up. My age today.... Read more

Put One Foot in Front of the Other

Keep on trucking. emoticon Let your thinking lead and your emotions follow. Read more

The Pediatric Neurologist

Friday, November 16, 2012      1 comments

We're done with the neurologist appointment. We left at 9:15 and got home around 1:30ish. The appointment was ok. She wanted to talk about headaches the whole time and told me "I don't know the answer to that" on every single question I had r... Read more

Going it Alone

Thursday, November 15, 2012      2 comments

Oh, I'm not really. But my husband is gone for a couple of days and I feel like I was left to the wolves (oops. . . I meant children). I'm an independent woman - I don't call him at work unless it is a true emergency. Because he's working two... Read more

Giving this day a 1-2-3 Punch

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      2 comments

My goal is to win today by a knock-out. It isn't going to be easy. Today is a bear of a day with too much packed into it, some of it out in the cold and rain. But I've got my gloves on and plan to fight to the end. Read more

I Feel Mahvelous, Dahling

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      4 comments

I am getting so much done. Don't worry, there is so much to be done that I won't be done with it all for a long, long time. But it feels so good to have some energy and not be in pain. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop: for a f... Read more

Mini Personal Challenges

Tuesday, November 13, 2012      2 comments

I guess you could call them mini goals or even mini science experiments. I've been trying some small changes to my life to see how my body reacts. The first one which I've been doing for almost 3 weeks, is a no refined sugar challenge. ... Read more

No More Talking to People About Diet

Sunday, November 11, 2012      3 comments

Why do I set myself up like this? People will ask me how I am doing - in a wanting details sort of way, not just as a a greeting. I will open my big mouth and say something about my frustration with not losing weight. And the lectures begin. ... Read more

Class Monitor (LOL)

Saturday, November 10, 2012      3 comments

I've been formally made "class monitor" at Zumba. Why do I feel like I'm back in grade school? My formal job duties are to take attendance (just a count of how many are there), to take care of any disruptions and to get the defibrillator if an... Read more

A New Zumba Convert

Friday, November 09, 2012      3 comments

I was talking to a newish lady in Zumba tonight. We had a lot in common. Both of us hated exercise before we found Zumba. Both of us found it snoring boring. But both of us like the fun and variety of Zumba. Nothing boring there! She's bee... Read more

Hoo Boy, Am I Sore!

Friday, November 09, 2012      1 comments

We did lots of squats in Zumba tonight. Boy, are my thighs sore! Remember to stick that tush out behind you when you do them so that your knees don't go too far forward, injuring your knee.... Read more

Good Lab Report

Wednesday, November 07, 2012      2 comments

I got the test results from last week's blood test today. Many values are the same. The ones that went up slightly are my electrolytes - potassium and calcium. (They didn't test magnesium.) This is good. This means that the prescription pot... Read more
