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

Head's Up on New SP Feature (Sharing Blogs)

Sunday, January 15, 2012      7 comments

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

Exercise Day Two

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

BMI Down 1.5 (2012: It is a journey)

Sunday, January 01, 2012      5 comments

In my last blog, I commented that I felt I had wasted 2011 because my weight was up and not down and nowhere near my goal. There are other reasons for that statement, but this blog is about today, about tomorrow and this new year. In that sam... Read more

December 30

Friday, December 30, 2011      5 comments

In terms of healthy living, I feel as if I have wasted this year. I weigh more than my tracker says - I have not wanted to update it. The weight watchers program at work has not worked for me, but that is not completely the fault of the progra... Read more

I Have Enough

Thursday, November 24, 2011      9 comments

I Have Enough. Three words. This week is the first time I have been able to say them and feel their meaning as it relates to food. I know I am blessed, I know I am fortunate. But I have not always known this and I have never known what i... Read more

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
