An Odd Day

Saturday, March 20, 2010      8 comments

Thank you, SparkFriends, for your birthday wishes! Most of my family has been silent today. I had a list of things to do today and did not complete all of them. What I did do was go to SportsAuthority to see about the running shoe sale. I... Read more

My New Year's Eve

Saturday, March 20, 2010      6 comments

Today was an excellent day! I am not 100% yet, but that does not matter. I didn't have a dedicated walk, but I did a lot of walking throughout the day and used the stairs at every opportunity. The fact that I got winded a little and my legs st... Read more

Another Day on Hold

Thursday, March 18, 2010      5 comments

As I was stepping out of the shower this morning, I remembered I sit on the same floor, only a few cubes away, from a young woman expecting twins. I called my boss in our Knoxville office and asked what he thought I should do. I don't have the... Read more

The 10% Experiment - Day Three (Experiment on Hold)

Wednesday, March 17, 2010      2 comments

For the second day in a row, I am way below on food. Nothing sounded edible. I called the advice nurse and eventually got to do a phone consult with a doctor (my primary was not available). I told the doctor that I've had shingles 3 times and... Read more

The 10% Experiment - Day Two

Tuesday, March 16, 2010      3 comments

Today should not count on the experiment. The only exercise I got today was hurrying from the bedroom to the facilities. I've eaten almost nothing today and only one 10 oz cup of hot tea (no caffeine in it). Later in the day, I got a headache... Read more

The 10% Experiment - Day One

Tuesday, March 16, 2010      4 comments

Increasing my upper calorie limit and some of the other metrics seems to have helped in one sense. I did not have that crashing sleepiness after eating which made me more productive at work - a real win. I also did not feel hungry nor have... Read more

The 10% Experiment

Sunday, March 14, 2010      8 comments

After looking forward to Sunday morning most of the week, I am a bit deflated. I felt thinner, I felt as if I were making significant progress. The feedback this morning was disappointing. Down half a pound (still better than last week's 2/10t... Read more

The New Pedometer Works!

Saturday, March 13, 2010      5 comments

I was laid off from job #2 at the end of October 2009 and, aside from the significant impact on cash flow, getting used to having weekends off has been slow in coming. I have worked 2 or 3 jobs for most of the 20+ years I've lived here. Recent... Read more

Is it Time to Make Concessions in the Name of Reality?

Friday, March 12, 2010      5 comments

I was born early, due in early June, born in March, back in the days when premies had less of a chance of survival than now. I was born early because of an attempted illegal abortion. I am blessed in that the damage was minimal and physical. ... Read more

Calm, Joy, Euphoria, Nutrition and Exercise

Thursday, March 11, 2010      3 comments

After yesterday's turmoil over whether or not I was on target, on track or even eating the right amount of food, today was calm with moments of joy and euphoria. My self-talk on the drive to work was reiterating my concluding thoughts from last... Read more

Brain Scramble

Wednesday, March 10, 2010      4 comments

Several Sparkpeople commented on my blog posting from yesterday, which I always appreciate! One says she has increased her calorie range and is losing weight, another said that, because she is short, Sparkpeople's site doesn't calculate all that... Read more

Over 1000 Fitness Minutes! Really?!

Tuesday, March 09, 2010      7 comments

I had other thoughts on my mind for today's blog as the day slowly worked its way to evening. When I came home, logged in and started posting activities, I was surprised to receive a comment in my friend feed that I had gone over 1000 fitness m... Read more

Compartmentalized Life - Not So Much

Tuesday, March 09, 2010      4 comments

It's probably a defense mechanism that I need to think about sometime, but not tonight. My life has been compartmentalized for a long time, at least I thought so. Work in one mental box, home life in another, distant family in another and the... Read more

Emotional Roller Coaster

Sunday, March 07, 2010      3 comments

Saturday, my favorite boss found me on Facebook. The last time I saw him was late summer 1986, but he had a huge impact on my life. I was floored to be reconnected with him! In the midst of that euphoria, I found out that my "adopted mom"... Read more

Am I Blocking My Own Progress?

Saturday, March 06, 2010      1 comments

Usually I post my blog midday or in the evening. It's morning and all I've had so far is the required first cup of coffee (a Rwandan bean). The past few weeks, I have walked more, I've used the stairs and, on occasion, flirted with free weight... Read more
