Thursday, December 16, 2010      9 comments

13,257 is what my pedometer says I did today! I walked as much as I could today knowing that it is going to be very stormy for the next few days. I looked for every opportunity to move that I could! I took two bags of food to donate to the food... Read more

Thursday, December 16, 2010      7 comments

I forgot to wear my pedometer today! I hate it when I forget it. I had to estimate what I did. Work is completely nonstop. I have not even had time to address my Christmas cards because I come home completely exhausted. But it has had ... Read more
Decided to Live Victoriously
Tuesday, December 14, 2010      3 comments

I decided I was going to live victoriously today. What did I do? Nothing differently, but I had a very positive attitude. I usually do, but today was a high energy day and I needed it. The workload is nuts and it does not feel as if it wi... Read more
A Breathless Day
Monday, December 13, 2010      5 comments

I registered for the Alternative Dispute Resolution certificate class today. I've been intending to do so for a while, but I had to juggle some things and scrounge for the money. The company is not covering this, it is all me. I view it as a ... Read more

Saturday, December 11, 2010      5 comments

I thought I was going to put in about 3 hours at work today and it ended up being almost twice that without me achieving as much as I thought I would. I picked up the work that Yvonne could not do (she's worked from home while sick, but, when y... Read more

Friday, December 10, 2010      5 comments

Today was something else! In yesterday's blog, I mentioned the awkward situation with the manager who was upset that I included his boss on an email about some legal research I had done. I included the VP not because he's the boss but because h... Read more
Countdown Begins
Thursday, December 09, 2010      2 comments

There were 11 working days left in the year when today started. I never did the countdown until this year. My company shuts down between Christmas and New Years. The end of the year push is really draining and stressful. I don't know how I'l... Read more

Wednesday, December 08, 2010      6 comments

I had chana masala at lunch (a dish with rice, chickpeas and tomatoes) at the work cafe. To that, I added some spicy black beans and it was a feast! I was full, my palate was joyful and I lasted until dinner... It's layoff season again. A... Read more

Yesterday was a big carbo load (see yesterday's blog) and I was *determined* to make better choices today. Wendy and I had lunch today, our only chance to do so before she heads back to Charlotte on Thursday. We went to Chilis and I had every ... Read more

Today was the long-awaited fun day in San Francisco with my coworker friend from our Charlotte office. We are both paralegals and we get along wonderfully. We met for breakfast and I ate too much...I had an egg beater omelette with a bit of ch... Read more
My "Adopted" Mom
Saturday, December 04, 2010      8 comments

My mother is still alive, but we have not had a relationship by her choice since the end of May 1971. She sent me to live with Dad and his new family in a manner in which none of us knew what was happening until it was all done. It turned out ... Read more

Friday, December 03, 2010      4 comments

Today was the department holiday lunch. I had my usual yummy high fiber cereal for breakfast and a small banana and lowfat yogurt as a snack. Even so, I was so hungry by the time it was lunch time! To my surprise, it was a small buffet instead... Read more
