I increased my daily step goal by 500 steps to 5500. I did 7716 today and, so far, no tendonitis pain.

The Kitten Will Not Be Coming Home With Me

I Met My New Baby Today!
As usual, I ended the day with too many calories. I have gotten into the bad habit of eating cookies to solve a sweet craving. Even when I ate without caring, I hardly ever had cookies, so I don't know why this has suddenly become a practice..... Read more

I worked a long day today, longer than I intended, but it's Friday. I had a meeting with my supervising attorney and it went well. I still make rookie mistakes, but she likes the bulk of my work. Work is about to get very, very busy.

Sidelined by Migraine, More Kitten News
I went to bed last night with one of those combination headaches - sinus, tension and a hint of migraine (sensitive to light and sound and a touch of nausea). Woke up with the same thing, but went in to work. I knew immediately it was a mistak... Read more
On Track and Kitten Still on Hold
I did not get the chance to walk at lunch, but when I realized that was going to happen, I made extra trips around the office. A coworker is in town from our branch office in TN, so I took the opportunity and had lunch with her. We went to the... Read more
Mother and Ruby
Today was a much better day. I stayed on track with food and water. I took a short walk. My lower back started hurting during the walk and I know that's because of the weight I gained. In the last 3 weeks, I've gained 5 pounds....
I took ... Read more
Nothing Good to Say
I have been off track most of this week. Over in food, under in exercise...I have not really cared, but I will tomorrow when I step on the scale. I never even left the house today.

A Sparkfriend Sparked Me! ("Catch me doing something right")
Yesterday, I saw a message board comment where someone was talking about taking money from her swear jar to put towards her new smaller person wardrobe. Something clicked. I decided to adopt that for my use. I have a coffee can at work where ... Read more
I Feel Really Fat Today!
The scale was way up this week. I did not care. I discovered that my relationship with food is not as healthy/improved as I thought it was. I even rediscovered Oreos. There are some foods that I have no business ever eating. Akin to any add... Read more
Yesterday (August 6) was Dad's birthday. Were he alive, he would have been 76. I was so fortunate to have been able to plan and attend his 70th birthday party. That year, I saw him twice. For that party and, in October, we met in Las Vegas w... Read more
