Sidelined by Migraine, More Kitten News

Wednesday, August 18, 2010      8 comments

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

Monday, August 16, 2010      5 comments

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

Monday, August 16, 2010      5 comments

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

Sunday, August 15, 2010      9 comments

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. But I am not going to beat myself up about it. I will ... Read more

Yesterday was such a fabulous day (see yesterday's blog if you missed it!). Thanks, IXCHEL23, LNKSMOM & ISHIIGIRL for the Spark goodies. Your encouragement means a lot! I came in to work to learn the sad news that a former coworker ... Read more

A Sparkfriend Sparked Me! ("Catch me doing something right")

Monday, August 09, 2010      9 comments

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!

Sunday, August 08, 2010      11 comments

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

Floundering...

Saturday, August 07, 2010      6 comments

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

Training Class & Exam

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      7 comments

I spent all day in a training class followed by an exam. This was for renewal of my notary public commission. The toughest part of the day is fighting to stay focused as the afternoon wears on. I am afraid I did not pass the test. I'll find ... Read more

On My Way Back

Tuesday, August 03, 2010      10 comments

First day more or less back after a week of wrenching pain. Ruby's funeral was yesterday. I ate too much at the buffet following the funeral but I did not care. I gave a lot of thought over this week because I have been through something like... Read more

Ruby's Visitation Tonight

Sunday, August 01, 2010      8 comments

Facebook took down the tribute page I created. I did not know that, by using my email address to set it up, they would see it as a duplicate. I created another page with a secondary email address, but it had some functionaliry issues. Ruby's ... Read more

Remembering Ruby, A Rainbow and a Primal Scream

Tuesday, July 27, 2010      11 comments

When the news came, I did not believe it. I still don't believe it. At first, I did not want to even speak the words. I am starting to realize that not saying the words perpetuates the harm and prevents healing. This may force me to look at ... Read more

Remembering Ruby, Full of Tears and Regrets

Monday, July 26, 2010      7 comments

Thank you, Sparkfriends, for your comments, for your goodies, for your compassion. I am in tears now, both because cogent thought is tough but also because you have touched me deeply. The scale says I lost 2 lbs this week, even with 3 days... Read more
