Zero Plus One

Sunday, January 23, 2011      4 comments

A migraine threatened all day. Again, I did nothing productive. I am a bit down. I am tired of tracking food, of exercising, of the journey. I hope the mood passes very soon. I gave in and ate way over today. I am not particularly depresse... Read more

I did not sleep much at all last night and spent today dealing with really weird back spasms and a headache that is threatening to become a migraine. No walk or other exercise. Still within range for food, but I am also fighting the ur... Read more

Doughnuts & Pizza and Tidbits of Thought

Friday, January 21, 2011      6 comments

She brought doughnuts again today. I have skipped so many doughnuts, so many candies, dip and chips and all the holiday goodies. I am not a saint and this is also not a statement of deprivation. I did not feel well today and it was the kind o... Read more

Did Not Meet My Fitness Minute Goal Today, But...

Thursday, January 20, 2011      8 comments

Close to the beginning of this month, I was poking around on the message boards and found a few Sparkpeople who were asking for a fitness buddy. I have wanted one since I joined nearly a year ago. I contacted them and ultimately we started a n... Read more

The Miracle of Sleep and My Scale Mantra

Wednesday, January 19, 2011      6 comments

The scale is not my boss. It does not govern my mood. It captures only a moment in time. It reflects only part of my journey. The scale said I had gained over 2 pounds (was that only yesterday?). Today I am down over a pound. I am not goin... Read more

The Pizza Lament

Tuesday, January 18, 2011      7 comments

This is one of those days when being careful about food, water and exercise is drudgery. I got in over 10K steps, not much strength training and will end the day on track with food and water. Yesterday was BF's birthday, but he did not f... Read more

It Pays To Look Twice! A Job Application Posted

Monday, January 17, 2011      7 comments

I seldom do this, but I looked back at yesterday's food tracker and discovered I had made a double entry, so I WAS within range! Woohoo! I am today, at least in most things. Low in calcium and high in fat...I had lunch out with a friend and had ... Read more

20 Calories and No Fitness Minutes

Sunday, January 16, 2011      6 comments

Wiped out again today. Zero energy of any kind. I did not exercise at all. I ended up 20 calories over the top. Not a good day save for a phone call with my sister.... Read more

A Day of Rest, Jhadzhia Update and Bleh!

Saturday, January 15, 2011      2 comments

My fun plans were cancelled and I decided today would be a great day to take a nice long walk and do some strength training. But, when I woke up this morning, my body said today would be a great day of rest. I still feel pretty run over with t... Read more

Take 2 With Your Biggest Meal of the Day...

Friday, January 14, 2011      1 comments

Take 2 With Your Biggest Meal of the Day…This was the first instruction on a bottle of some sort of appetite suppressant. I almost started laughing. Now, my 3 main meals are roughly the same in terms of nutritional value. My two snacks are mu... Read more

Mourning and Moving

Thursday, January 13, 2011      3 comments

I know I will miss Miss Wrisley for the rest of my life. I called her that for many years and, as our friendship deepened, she asked me to call her by her nickname Winnie (short for Winifred, the only woman I've ever known with that name). ... Read more

Rest in peace, Winnie! I love you!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011      12 comments

I am heartbroken, devastated and beyond tears. I learned today that Miss Wrisley died in November. I had known her for nearly 40 years. She taught music at the boarding school and when we met, I was an immature teen in great need. She taught... Read more

Perfection Is Not The Goal

Tuesday, January 11, 2011      8 comments

I joined the 28 day challenge with high hopes and great ambition only to be laid low by the worst cold I have had in 3 years. I have yet to do one day of the video exercises or much else on the challenge. In the past, that would have been enou... Read more

Please Pray for My SparkFriend Jhadzia

Monday, January 10, 2011      8 comments

The light dawned late. On Saturday, I took a decongestant pill and a swig of cough syrup in an effort to beat this cold into submission. Generally, I take half of a normal dosage for even over the counter drugs such as these were. I had no su... Read more

Not Safe to Drive

Sunday, January 09, 2011      5 comments

This cold is a doozy. I cannot walk straight, cannot think straight. I think the combination of the cold meds are not doing me any favors. I have taken nothing today and my head is still quite foggy. We had errands to do today, but I don't f... Read more
