US Constitution Day!
Friday, September 17, 2010      5 comments

09/17/1789 - the day the US Constitution was signed! That was the highlight of the day. I have felt lousy most of this week and have been inhaling carbs in an effort to make me feel better. I don't think I will weigh tomorrow... My te... Read more
All Hands Meeting With New CEO and Picnic Munchies
Tuesday, September 14, 2010      6 comments

Today was the first All Hands meeting with our new CEO. I usually sit in the front of the room so I can hear and see. But I knew everyone would expect me to do so and I wanted to send a message that the change of CEO is not something I take li... Read more
Executive Reorganization and Picnic Snacks
Monday, September 13, 2010      3 comments

Our new CEO started the week with an over-the-weekend email. He has promoted one VP to take his old position, created a new VP position and moved some departments to now report to a different VP. My take away is that he wants to hit the ground... Read more
Banana Slug
Sunday, September 12, 2010      2 comments

California's state mollusk (or something) is the banana slug, so called because it is often BRIGHT yellow. I guess the yellow is so bright because it gives the false message that the creature is poisonous. I felt slow, sluggish and nonspecific... Read more
.3 Increase Disappointing, Not Defeated
Saturday, September 11, 2010      4 comments

I weighed in this morning before I saw the advice from a Sparkfriend to avoid the scale today. She suggested, rightly I think, that the scale would be up because of the sodium increase from the picnic food yesterday. .3 is not terrible, but it... Read more
I Blew It!
Friday, September 10, 2010      9 comments

I appreciate the words of encouragement and advice about the picnic. The advice was to eat prior to the picnic - check. The other advice was to have fun and eat lightly. Partially done. I overate big time and it was mostly mindless eating. E... Read more

My boyfriend's sister is undergoing radiation treatment for cancer. I think it's uterine cancer. Scared. Terrified. I wish Atlanta were not clear across the country! Of course, they have no money. I am not even sure she has insurance. The... Read more
Working in Movement in Small Moments
Wednesday, September 08, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday, I came to work to learn that my department was having lunch brought in for a team event. I knew today was going to be lunch in as well for a mandatory training session. I was actually disappointed - not only did I not get my lunchti... Read more
Musing on a Mixed-Results Day
Tuesday, September 07, 2010      6 comments

This was a Tuesday that certainly felt like a Monday. In saying that, I don't mean to complain about Mondays per se. I like every day and don't have that Monday dread or Friday delirium. I think my years of school and years of working 7 days ... Read more
Black Rice, Black Day, Tendonitis
Monday, September 06, 2010      7 comments

Back to square one on the tendonitis. Very sore today but not as terrible as Saturday. I read something today about black rice and am curious to try it. The summer of death continues. I learned this morning that another former cowo... Read more
A Light Day
Sunday, September 05, 2010      4 comments

The tendon feels much better today! I was able to take 3 short walks with only twinges. The pedometer dropped steps again (when a button gets pushed, it sometimes changes the time and, thus, the day), so I can only guess at what I actually did.... Read more
Unplanned Day of Rest
Saturday, September 04, 2010      8 comments

I woke up this morning planning to do a lot of exercise. My tendon felt rather sore, but not bad. BUT a while later, I could not even stand on that foot. As long as I stay off my foot, I feel fine. I lost 2.1 this week! I was amazed becu... Read more
What a Fabulous Day!
Friday, September 03, 2010      7 comments

Today was the big day at work. Our CEO has retired and today was the party to celebrate his birthday and his contributions to the company. It was not sad, which surprised me a little because I know the people who work closely with him are sad ... Read more
If I Used Stress as an Excuse...
Thursday, September 02, 2010      5 comments

Over 8K steps today. I am loving the fact that I can walk throughout the day without seriously waking up my tendonitis! I had 8 glasses of water before lunch. I finished a task today that I had been fighting a block about. However, if I ... Read more

That cinnamon roll looks pretty good! I remember what it tastes like! No, I don't want that today. I would rather lose 1.5 pounds this week because I choose to lose 6 pounds this month. It's really hot outside. The A/C feels good at my ... Read more
