I Am So Out of Shape and Other Saturday Thoughts

Saturday, March 10, 2012      5 comments

I had some errands to do this morning, including stopping at the eye doctor's to get an replacement receipt from my visit in December that I need to fax in to my flexpay provider before the end of the month or I might have to pay the IRS for it.... Read more

Thursday, March 08, 2012      8 comments

March is For Me!

Thursday, March 01, 2012      6 comments

I started an introspective blog and it disappeared. I am yawning, so life is conspiring to tell me it's time for "light's out". Today was productive and yet not on track - sort of sum of my SP journey! I'll come back to those introspective... Read more

Continuing My Informal Series

Sunday, February 26, 2012      4 comments

I am finally back online! My home internet connection died on Monday evening and I FINALLY got it back up yesterday evening. My internet provider could not solve my problem and I got different info each time I called. Finally, I did some pokin... Read more

Seeking Equilibrium and Zest!

Tuesday, February 21, 2012      5 comments

Here it is nearly 2 weeks since my last blog. When I first joined SP, I was much more regular about sharing my thoughts. Lately, I have kept things more to myself. The outward evidence of that is not a surprise: no weight loss, very little i... Read more

Mrs. Stapleton in Memoriam (A Salute to Teachers)

Friday, February 10, 2012      5 comments

Mrs. Stapleton died yesterday. At 97, it was not unexpected, but it breaks my heart no less. I thought she had died in July 2010 when my Paralegal Studies graduation announcement was returned. I was destroyed and my heart hurts as badly ... Read more

Humbled = Attitude Adjustment

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      7 comments

I've been having a bad attitude for a while now about looming stress at work. My friend and coworker Yvonne is going on two vacations - one this Friday to Mexico to photograph monarch butterflies and next month to Canada to photograph the harp ... Read more

A Hug that May Save My Life

Thursday, February 02, 2012      9 comments

I have pretty much floundered for the past year for a variety of reasons and a collection of excuses. A few months ago, I joined the at work WW program, more to be the last person they needed in order to go than because I thought I would benefi... Read more

41 years and 2 years

Tuesday, January 31, 2012      8 comments

Today is my older brother's birthday. It is his 41st birthday in heaven. He died saving another boy's life. In death, the world saw he was a hero, but he was and is my hero in life. I thought about eating out for dinner, but traffic was too m... Read more

The leader of one of my teams emailed me the following: Some of you may not be aware of a new SP feature recently added before members were advised. There now is a new share bar added to our blogs that allows other members who "like" the... Read more

Too fat for Special K!

Friday, January 13, 2012      8 comments

Some of you may have seen that commercial about Special K "lose 6 pounds in 2 weeks". I got an email about it, so, just because I am a curious person, I clicked through to their website, entered my stats and got a message "Sorry, you need to se... Read more

More Stairs!

Monday, January 09, 2012      6 comments

Not eating on track, but I have been choosing to go up stairs more often. I lost track how many times I went up stairs. I cannot yet walk down the stairs without knee troubles, but being able to walk up stairs is progress. I did laundry a... Read more

Up Stairs!

Thursday, January 05, 2012      3 comments

Today's WWAW meeting gave me some food for thought. Talking about old vs new thinking about food. I shared that I no longer view food as "good" or "bad", that food is neutral. I have replaced those labels with "healthy" or "better" or "unwi... Read more

Exercise Day 3

Tuesday, January 03, 2012      5 comments

I walked and did some upper body strength training today but it was not very much, certainly not enough to make up for the excess food I ate. My triggers? Yes, plural. Lot reinspections. My to do list is not finished (can't afford to fin... Read more

Monday, January 02, 2012      3 comments

Today was the last day of vacation. Tomorrow, work begins again. I have LOVED having this time off! I really needed the break. I did not get as many things crossed off my to do list as I wanted, but I am very proud of the work I did get done ... Read more
