Late breaking news story
I got home tonight and got into a trying on mood. You know, check the closet, cross your fingers, and see what fits.
And -- lo and behold -- I was able to not only get into but actually button and have room in -- a long coat that I haven't ... Read more
Yeah, Baby, She's Got it
Or you could look here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v
Both are equally cheesy but the song spoke to me last week in a way that didn't really hit me until this morning. I was walking to the bus stop and just really striding.... Read more
What good's a cold ...
... if you can't give it to someone?
At least, that's what my father always says.
Hence, I'm going back to work although, since I more or less got this bit o' fun from someone there, I probably can't return the favor. Ah well, there's... Read more
Sick Sick Sick
Last night I got into bed and could not get warm. My hands and feet, in particular, were freezing. So I piled on the layers -- 2 prs of socks, 2 sweatshirts, 1 pr long john bottoms, 1 pr sweats, 1 3/4 sleeve shirt. Plus one of the sweatshirts is... Read more
Land o' Fish
Two days ago it was salmon. Yesterday it was leftover salmon for lunch and swordfish for dinner. Today it'll be tuna for lunch.
I am enjoying it -- I used to eat fish before, but we didn't have it for meals as my husband was not enamored o... Read more
Now, I don't sweat much.
You may be saying to yourself, "But jes, you delicate little flower, how could anyone think of you as sweating?" Or, you may be saying, "jes, you're only kidding yourself. You sweat like a longshoreman in July." Or ... Read more
Life is pretty damned good these days, I have to say.
I am generally optimistic and have a boatload of energy, even though these days I have maybe 3 or 4 ounces of tea with caffeine and then that's it for caffeine for the day. I'll finish o... Read more
Happy Mexican Food!
Well, I am thrilled! Hubby and I are going out to Mexican in a few weeks and it will be very manageable. It'll end up being about 700 calories, 13.5 g. of fat and maybe 800 mg. of sodium.
I'm going to have a bowl of gazpacho (so that I can ... Read more
Which way did that wired gal go?
I am wired, I am psyched.
This morning, I checked out my pedometer, and it said 2/3 of a mile after I got into the office. Now, that's nothing new, but it took me 10 minutes of walking, all told. This is 4.0 MPH! If I go any faster (e. g. 7... Read more
Don't Look, Ethel!
If I could ever actually learn how to properly use a measuring tape, I might actually be seeing certain non-scale results. This would make me happy. However -- and this is weird because I'm generally rather analytical -- I cannot get a good meas... Read more
Made my first minigoal!
It was 17 lbs. off and I actually blew it away -- I'm already at 19.2 lbs. off!
Next goal: 16 lbs. I expect to be done, er, some time around the middle of May.... Read more
And the fun just doesn't stop
Now, I like my dentist. And I may have misheard or not paid good attention when this was explained to me, or whatever, but what happened 2 days ago was not the very end of my dental fun. Instead, it's just a little side trip. They implanted a st... Read more
I've been okay re the implant. It was really just the stem part of the tooth. The actual crown won't be added for another few months. And then -- oof -- it'll be about a year of this nonsense. I am monumentally tired of having a bridge with all ... Read more
Out of sorts day
I'm having dental implant surgery today. Oof. So entries and info might be sporadic for a few days. My diet is going to consist, mainly, of yogurt and soup. Oh joy.... Read more
Who cares what games we choose?
There's something about lyrics. If you asked me if I pay attention more to music than to lyrics, I would/will always answer: "lyrics".
And they mean something to me. Perhaps that's trite but I get something out of it. I'm going through the ... Read more
