Great Holiday

Saturday, November 28, 2015      1 comments

We had a great holiday at my mom's place. We celebrated all that we are thankful for, including her tenant and friend that cooks for her and helps her out. We also celebrated her birthday. Went to the park to play ball with the boys and in gener... Read more

It has been a fairly busy week. I usually do not work the week of Thanksgiving, but having been out so much lately I felt the need to be in the office. I haven't gotten as much exercise as I'd like this week, but got back on track today. They le... Read more

What a start to the morning! I have been getting up later and later every day this week. I'm a naturally slow riser, so it's not that surprising. This morning I had my lunch all ready to go. I even took the time to hang my son's lunch on the fro... Read more

I got to see the doc this morning for my sleep follow-up and he addressed the asthma, too. It looks like we have a plan to address both issues and I'll see him for one more follow-up on Monday. In the meantime, I want back at the exercise!... Read more

Tuesday was a tough day. Almost as soon as I got into my office I started having problems with my asthma. I puffed on my rescue inhaler as much as was safe, then had to leave for the day and get help. It got better, but I was lightheaded and exh... Read more

How Very Monday

Monday, November 16, 2015      4 comments

Today I am tired. Again, I went to bed at a reasonable hour, but woke up at 3:30am and could not get back to sleep. After almost an hour of trying, I got out of bed. I pinned some pants, read my Bible, put dinner in the slow cooker, drank some w... Read more

just say no to broccoli

Wednesday, November 11, 2015      2 comments

I learned a lesson tonight. Eating a brocccoli florets after eating shrimp too fast is not good. The broccoli was cooked and soft, but the gas was bad. And then I upchucked it. So, no more broccoli. .... Read more

Keep it interesting

Today is day 2 back at work with the gym available. I want to try something new today, but I know I won't want to run between buildings to go from cardio to weights. Plus, I'd rather keep my weight lifting simple and broad at this point. I found... Read more

First day back

So today is my first day back at work post-surgery, which means also the first day back at the company gym. OMGosh. They have changed so much! I went into the old cardio room (previously the only one!) and there was no elliptical trainer! I got ... Read more

Back to life

Friday, November 06, 2015      3 comments

So Monday I am going back to work. I am trying to plan what I need to take with me for food, workout gear, and how to plan our weekly menu so it won't be hard on me after work. I have about figured out the easiest way to take my lunches and snac... Read more

Getting creative

Thursday, October 22, 2015      1 comments

I haven't walked in a few days, so today I made a new walking route to better implement a 30 minute walk. (My route had been a 20 minute mile route.) I had fun with it today, though my knee is starting to hurt when I walk again. I can't wait to ... Read more

One day at a time

So dinner is in the slow cooker-- a take on sesame chicken that i should be able to eat tonight. I hope. If not, I have some leftover ham salad I can turn to, if necessary. :) My newly-diabetic husband has been going through a bit of a depressiv... Read more

dealing with stalls

Wednesday, October 07, 2015      4 comments

So I've been in a weight-loss stall for a week now. I haven't lost a single pound in my entire second week post-op. It's been very frustrating. There's nothing quite like feeling the pain from the surgery and thinking "this torture is not worth ... Read more
