Please Pray for Madeleine (Part 2)
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
Please Pray for Madeleine and Her Parents
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
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
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
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
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
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.

October - a Look Back and Forward
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
Juneau A-Z (Idea From Michcleary)
My A-Z list
A. Age: Qualified for AARP membership- 'nuff said!
B. Bed size: Queen, not big enough for partner, tiny cat who thinks the bed is her throne and me!
C. Chore you dislike: Pick one - the word chore does imply somethin... Read more
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
