I have not stepped on the scale for a while. I feel huge. I have been eating within range, more or less. But I have not been exercising. I went to the doctor Monday for the chronic heel pain and got some heel cups and gel insoles. The cups ... Read more
Yvonne & Her Mom Need Prayers
Yesterday, Yvonne got me to cover her desk by saying she was working on a Quality Assurance project (QA take precedenceover everything). She said it would be for a couple of hours and she would call when she was ready to take over. The day was... Read more
The Suspects are Identified (Tendonitis or Bone Spur)
I was wiped out this morning and took a vacation day (out of sick time). I slept all morning and spent most of the afternoon at Kaiser. The doctor on call needs to work on her listening skills. She asked me a question 3 times and I answered i... Read more
Goal Met! I Get It!
This morning, I optimistically set my status with the announcement that I planned to do 10,500 steps. When I left work this evening, I had 7,167 with an errand to do on the way home. I parked a good distance away from the pet food store, as I ... Read more
Today Was a Better Day
If I have one more snack, depending on what it is, I will end the day within range in just about everything. Currently a smidge low in calories and fat with room to play in others...Hmmm.
I got in an hour's worth of walking today, though n... Read more
Don't Ask What's Next!
Last week, I started overeating carbs in response to an emotional stress event. I knew what I was doing, but I also knew I could not face another handful of carrots! The stress is in relationship and money, so they are stressors that will not g... Read more
Bestefar and Musings
Bestefar is the Norwegian word for grandfather. Today was my Bestefar's birthday. Were he still living he would be 105! There is a pciture of me in a bassinet with his arm in the picture. (I am named after both of his daughters, my aunts). I... Read more
Beetle on my Mind and Discouragement
This morning, just outside the front lobby at work, I saw a critter on the ground. I squinted and realized, yes, I did see it right. It was upside down and stuck. One person watched and another took a cellphone photo as I turned it over with ... Read more
Independence Day Eve
I registered for the charity walk today. It benefits an organization that fights childhood cancer. The walk will occur on November 19. It will be at a different locale than it was last year, but I expect I will enjoy it just as much. SP poli... Read more
Bubbles, Taxes and Inflammation
I dropped out of 3 teams today...sigh. Thanks to those of you who offered support last night when I mentioned I was going to do this. I view this as a temporary thing. If nothing else, curiosity will get me to rejoin and check in on my SP fri... Read more
Leaving Doesn't Mean I Don't Care
In the next day or so, I will leave a few teams. Not because I don't care about my SparkFriends or the focus of the team, but for myself. I am on overload in far too many areas of my life and I need to take small steps towards restoring balanc... Read more
I Think I Can, I Think I Can, I Think I Can....
I stepped on the scale this morning. Up again. Not so much from overeating as it is from under-exercising. My shoulder and wrist sprain are much better, as is the tendonitis. I go in tomorrow for the follow-up appointment on the sprains.

"Limited Duty" - a Simple Fall's Result
I tripped at work today. It was actually at the cafe next door. There was an uncovered outlet in the floor that did not have the proper cover plate. My shoe caught an edge and I fell. My cup of coffee, my apple and my breakfast went flying. ... Read more
All Righty Then! Time to Get to Work!
My goal this week was small and achievable. I wanted to lose half a pound and my reward for doing so was going to be a home spa day. Not only did I not meet that goal, but I set myself back pretty hard. I am now just a shade under 170!

SPY 2, Day 146: This Turtle Has Been Plodding (Updated)
I am back up to 167.5. There, I said it. I have been wanting to EAT, EAT, EAT and be a couch potato at the same time. Some of it is discouragement over the slowness of my progress, some of it has been depression over some unrelenting chaos in... Read more
