Hey look! Spring is springing!!
Ok, so it's still early, but spring feels close. Really close.
It has to be close if I'm walking outside at lunchtime instead of the walking track at the ice rink. :-D
My sore shoulder issue is being worked out. Today was my first m... Read more
On the Road Warrior road again!
Today, I'm in Edmundston. Work has brought me up here overnight, and I've had an ok food day. I had a plan, and so far, I've followed it nicely. I didn't get as much exercise as I was hoping for, but there is a fitness room in the hotel, so I... Read more
Of course I know better!
Of course I know better than to agree to going to Pizza Delight's lunch buffet. But when I'm asked to join someone for lunch, sometimes I keep thinking I can eat like a normal person at a pizza buffet.
Chinese Anne had asked me to join her... Read more
Holy cow, I lost a pound!
Weight loss progress has been slow since 2003. Overall, I'm ok with that, I know that my body can't handle a lot of weight loss all at once anymore, even though I wish I could drop the 80 lbs tomorrow.
But there's nothing like seeing that ... Read more
Random occurrences and thoughts over the weekend
It's been an interesting weekend, to say the least. Here's a summary of thoughts & activities since late Thursday night:
1 - I've been offered a temporary reassignment at work, more pay, but because GNB has a plan to amalgamate all Adminis... Read more
I don't know if it's the winter blahs or the peri-menopause kicking in, but for the last 3 nights, I haven't slept well, my body temperature spikes and drops so much during the night. If it hadn't been for the training sessions at work today, I... Read more
I don't have to beat everyone else
So, while I work at getting over the winter blahs, I keep up with the lunch hour walking. Today was a good energy day, I was able to walk a little faster for most of the workout. I didn't feel winded, but I knew I'd worked hard when I could fe... Read more
I've been denying it for weeks, but that's just making it worse.
I have the winter blahs.
It's not quite the blues, but it's not far from it. I'm working to keep busy, but I dread going outdoors when it's below freezing. I always hav... Read more
Of bloodwork, fasting and calories
Well, I didn't plan that so well yesterday!
I had forgotten about bloodwork scheduled for this morning, until I got home for supper. I have a pretty set routine for eating, and when it's disrupted, weird things happen. :-S When I saw the... Read more
Walking outside.... in February?!
Ahh, the plight of Canadians in February .... when can we go back outside without freezing facial body parts and enjoy the fresh air?
Today was one of those days for me! YAY!!!!
I finally got outside for my walk this winter. I went u... Read more
It's almost warm outside today!
It's been just above freezing temps for the last couple days, and I can't express how happy that makes me. I don't do cold very well.
In fact, it was warm enough outside that I considered taking my lunchtime walk outside. Right up until I... Read more
Well, that's one more Xmas in Feb in the books! The spread I'd prepared went over very well, guests brought snacks & munchies for later in the evening, and my kitchen is almost back to normal. :-P
Ok, so I did overbuy for groceries, especi... Read more
That lunch was TOO good
I don't get out with staff enough for lunches on Fridays, which, from a diet standpoint, is a good thing.
So off we head to the pub, and they have good food. No beer or spirits for me, but a diet pepsi is tasty on occasion. And even thoug... Read more
The day after a day off
Yesterday was better than I had expected. I didn't cheat (ie, get into chocolate or other high-fat foods), I got in a little cardio (bustin' a move always works... and housework is cardio, right? Yeah!), and by the time the turkey was cooked, I ... Read more
Still faking it before I make it
So I'm still stuck in the "fake it" mode of "fake it till you make it" mantra. I don't use this mantra often, only when I just can't seem to get health and nutrition issues under some sort of control.
Last night, like every evening, I head... Read more
