On Monday, my team (Purple Panthers) begins a new Biggest Loser Challenge, and one of the things we are asking participants to do is blog regularly. So I thought I'd give the daily thing a try. I don't really have anything earthshattering to sh... Read more

Wednesday, July 07, 2010      5 comments

You know how frustrating it is to grow out your hair? It hangs, it sags, it gets bushy, and it never really looks quite right no matter what you do? Well, guess what? That same thing happens to your body when you lose weight! (Ok, not rea... Read more

Last Day!

In less than 18 hours, I will be gowned up, numbed up, and revved up for my long-anticipated hip surgery. All I can say is, it's about time!! Yesterday I went to my last Tae Kwon Do class for a few months. It was kind of sad to know that I ... Read more

Today was a good day, but I was edgy all day, and kept picking fights with dh. Poor guy! We spent the morning playing a favorite computer game, then went to a couple rummage sales, visited the nursery, went to see Iron Man 2, transplanted ... Read more

The countdown continues...days 5 & 4

Yesterday was interesting. I woke up early and had plenty of time to think - had an epiphany ("you're making it too complicated" - see yesterday's entry), then went to work. I spent the better part of the day talking to the hospital, my su... Read more

You're making it too complicated

I'm not sleeping well lately, my brain is in overdrive. Today I woke up about 3 hours early and sat thinking, letting my head take its twists and turns from one thought to the next. While that was going on, I checked in to SP and poked around a ... Read more

Day 6 and counting

Thursday, May 13, 2010      2 comments

Yesterday was an interesting day. Since I can't take my enzymes, I have to watch out for any type of dairy ingredient, which can be difficult. I learned that I cannot eat English Muffins, because they contain lactose. But I do know that I can ea... Read more

At this time next week, I will be sedated and on a gurney heading in to the operating room. I'm scared and excited, all at the same time. The surgery is to repair torn catilage and remove a bone spur (FAI is the "official" name) from my right h... Read more

I've been stuck since last August. It started when my workload got so heavy I started having to cut out exercising and meal planning/preparation. Then I got injured, and found out in December that I needed surgery. At that time, my brain took a ... Read more

May is going to be an interesting month for me. I finally received authorization from the insurance company to have the hip surgery I need so I can get back to living! It's been very hard for me to be so inactive - this will be my first year n... Read more

I was responding to a dear SparkFriend’s blog today, and my response got really long and I thought – hey, maybe this is the kind of stuff that needs to go in my own blog! So here goes…thanks for the inspiration, Becky! Most of us spend a lo... Read more

Thursday, March 25, 2010      6 comments

Ok, a long, long time ago, a few people asked me to post pictures from my Tae Kwon Do testing. I said I would, but never did (sorry!). So, without further ado, here are some pics and a video from today's testing process. I started last Ju... Read more

It's a matter of taste

I have always been a meat and potatoes kind of girl. Anything that is filling and hearty gets my vote - stews, steak, scalloped get the idea. Growing up, vegetables were corn on the cob, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole.... Read more
