The Hits Keep Coming
Monday, September 27, 2010      5 comments

I have not blogged since learning about Gayle's death. Saturday was the long ago planned lunch in honor of my fried Ruby who died this summer. Her birthday is in a few days, so a bunch of us wanted to get together and eat in her honor. It was... Read more

What I Could Not Say Yesterday and How Today Went...
Wednesday, September 22, 2010      6 comments

Yesterday, I wore a huge sweater all day. I overheat easily, so I rarely wear a long sleeved shirt let alone another layer. I was not cold, though the weather is starting to be changeable, so it did not appear odd in the morning. Why the swea... Read more
I Hardly Know What to Say
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      11 comments

All day long, I have been composing a blog in my head. I used to blog every day, but have now fallen into an old lifestyle habit. My family knows when I go silent that things are not going well. So it is now. I don't have the energy to type ... Read more
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
Carmen, This Week's Focus, Minute Progress, Reward Fund
Thursday, September 09, 2010      4 comments

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
