"Congratulations! You Did It!"
I came in to work to find a sign in my office that had that caption. It was festooned with silver swirly things and paper mortar boards at the ends. It was a real charge! It made the Graduation Day euphoria continue. Several people came by to... Read more

Graduation Day! AA Paralegal Studies!
What a fabulous day! It was a long day, but a marvelous one! I had to be on campus by 7:30 am for 9:00 graduation. We were running late, so we stopped at Mcdonalds (cringe) and I had a sausage mcmuffin. Getting there that early meant lots of s... Read more
I am hungry, sore and tired. I am still staying on the low end of the nutrition because of tomorrow's post-graduation celebration lunch at Black Bear Diner. Even with a small cup of ice cream at work, I am low! Amazing! We have an ice cream so... Read more
I was so drained last night that, while I wanted to spark and get my daily points, I made the choice to go to sleep, figuring it would help me get through the day today. I hate being tired at work! Yesterday, I ended up below in almost all the ... Read more

Is the Volvo a Sign of a Brighter Tomorrow?
Virtual journey update: about 50 miles from Eureka, moving slowly, kind of burnt out and disinterested.
I realized today that I really don't like my present work situation, realized on a different level. Last week, I mentioned about the at... Read more
Father's Day 2010
Today was the fifth year without my dad, but it was not a terrible day. I tried not to think about the calendar and was not online much because I didn't want to see "Happy Fathers Day!" everywhere. I'm not bitter, there are just some days (Fat... Read more
Apprehensive About Tomorrow
Tendonitis flared up again. My heel has been sore most of the week, but I thought it was manageable. Today, I am really hobbled, so no real exercise today. Just going grocery shopping was too much!
I tried on my dresses that I bought for... Read more
Passage to India
After I blogged yesterday, I continued to eat and I ended up eating about 15 calories above goal. I didn't want to log them in, but I had just seen a post about being honest in the food tracker.
Today, I woke up HUNGRY! I forgot that lunch... Read more
Sleep is the Key
I stayed within range for most nutritional metrics, did not walk as much as I thought I would.
It was a sluggish day. The day dragged on and I was TIRED.
I am discovering that sleep really is more important than the way I live it.

So Thankful to Be Home!
I was hungry most of the day and ended up at the top of almost all nutritional metrics, but not over in anything...

I Survived, So Far
Thank you, SparkFriends, for your support! I posted a status note this morning that I was feeling on edge. That was because of the stuff at work. I really appreciate the support my SP community has given me.
I had the follow up meeting wi... Read more
My morning status note was "Happy Birthday, Diane". What I did not articulate was that, if she were alive, today she would be 55. We met when I was 18 and were hot and cold friends through the years, roommates a couple of times, and both times... Read more
What Am I Doing? Where Am I Going?
I gained 1.5 pounds this week. I should not have been surprised,but I am disappointed. Some of that was coming off of the colonoscopy. I did not expect to have trouble eating food AFTER the procedure and, after dropping 2 pounds because of th... Read more
