An Update
Sunday, November 06, 2011      7 comments

So much is going on that it is hard to articulate it all in any sort of coherent fashion. In no particular order: Severe depression, workload increase (good and bad), possible end of a long and sometimes turbulent relationship, financial s... Read more
I Dedicated My Exercise to Madeleine
Tuesday, October 25, 2011      5 comments

10,383 steps calf raises shoulder presses KB swings and lifts a fifteen minute walk (not counting all the other walking I did throughout the day) The negative is that I ate over range today. I had reduced my calorie range a few day... Read more
Please Pray for Madeleine (Part 2)
Tuesday, October 25, 2011      7 comments

Justin's little girl probably has kidney cancer. How can I help her more that through the St Jude's walkathon? Can I incentivize myself by setting aside money for minutes, dollars for pounds lost? How cool would it be for me to save my lif... Read more

I learned today that my coworker's daughter is at St Judes Hospital in TN. She had tests late last week and we have not heard yet but are bracing for the news that this just-turned-two girl has kidney cancer. I had already signed up (July ... Read more
Loma Prieta Thoughts
Monday, October 17, 2011      2 comments

Twenty two years ago, right at the start of the World Series game between the Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants, the earth shook. A bridge span collapsed and people died. Fires damaged property and people lost their jobs. I could not... Read more
Prayers, Please!
Thursday, October 13, 2011      10 comments

Life often has a way of shaking up my perspective and thereby humbling me. My travails with work, lack of money, WW, people, pain all fade to minutae on days like today. But first - I went to the WW meeting and stepped on the scale. I sti... Read more
50+ Minutes and Doubt
Thursday, October 13, 2011      6 comments

In my last blog, I mentioned the WW at Work program and my emotional reaction to gaining 5.2 pounds over 2 weeks, according to their scale. This morning, I got an email from the leader who said I needed to drop my free online program (meaning ... Read more
Forty Five Minutes
Monday, October 10, 2011      3 comments

I've been eating too many carbs the last few days. Thursdays is our Weight Watchers at Work meeting and the only reason I mention it is because it is integral to the episode. This is the 3rd cycle of WWAW this year, but the first I decided to ... Read more
No Cookbook for Me *Yet
Monday, October 03, 2011      5 comments

After my blog yesterday, did I execute?! Nah! Moved slowly, got out the door late and added the bill stop to the end of my errands. By the time I finished my errands and the tiny bit of walking that involved, my heel was screaming at me. ... Read more
October - a Look Back and Forward
Sunday, October 02, 2011      5 comments

I have become increasingly sporadic in blogging. That reflects on the sort of spectator position I have taken with my SP journey. Of course, that means I have not met any of my weightloss or conditioning goals. Yes, I want the tonnage t... Read more

Being Honest
Sunday, July 24, 2011      5 comments

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
Friday, July 22, 2011      5 comments

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)
Monday, July 18, 2011      9 comments

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!
Tuesday, July 12, 2011      12 comments

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
