I dropped BF off at the hospital on my way to work this morning. We both thought he would get some antibiotics for his infection and be home before I was.
Stunned to find out that he needs surgery (not sure when, probably tomorrow). He is... Read more
"Little Christmas Eve"
I was about to say I failed…
I have not been blogging regularly. I have not been logging food. I have not been exercising.
No, I am not surprised that my weight is about what it was when I joined SP nearly 3 years ago.
For a long ti... Read more
Remembering Pearl Harbor Day
I was not alive when December 7, 1941 came. I cannot explain why this anniversary has always been an emotional day for me. For more than a decade, I have taken the day off, but could not this year. I wore a pin for USS Arizona and went to wor... Read more
Four Years Ago Tomorrow and Other Musings
Four years ago tomorrow, I lost my wonderful Russian Blue boy cat named Bug. That morning, I spoke to him as I headed out to work. I could not reach him - he was curled up on a shelf right next to the door above my head and out of reach. Litt... Read more

Streak - Not Yet
My Sparkfriend CHICCHANTAL challenged people who read her blogs to start a streak. Hers was a mix of food, exercise, water etc. I thought that sounded like a good idea so I sort of endorsed it with as much enthusiasm as I can muster right now.... Read more
Straight Into the Arms of Food
I felt like crap all weekend. Saturday, I stayed pretty much on track with food, but I was also a total couch potato. Yesterday, did what I had to do and was on track unt... Read more
Still Sore But Holding My Own
I am so glad I participated in the Toastmaster show last night. It was a lot of fun! As sore as I was, I still got in some steps before the taping. Still, I was glad that we got through it quickly and I got home earlier than I expected.

With Apologies to Southwest Airlines...
My feed lied to everyone today because I was stunned last week. When I went to the doctor last week, the visit included the obligatory step-on-the-scale. I emptied my pockets - keys, cellphone, pedometer, coins...But I was fully clothed, inclu... Read more
A Hidden Blessing?
This week, I joined the Overeaters Anonymous team on SP. (Does that make me not anonymous?) I have never properly dealt with my emotional issues surrounding food. This is modeled after the 12 step program of Alcoholics Anonymous, so the first ... Read more
Mixed Bag on Fasting Blood Test Results
To my surprise, I had good numbers on all of the test results except for one. Some of the numbers were better than good. Whew!
The one that is higher than it should be is LDL. So I have some work to do!... Read more
This morning, I went to Kaiser for what turned out to be 5 appointments. I have never before been able to schedule everything on the same day, let alone all on the morning. First was the fasting blood test. I have terrible veins that collapse... Read more
I Talked to Mom Angell Today!
What a day! The Oakland Athletics clinched the division, so my hopes for an OAK-SF World Series are still intact.
A friend loaned me some money and insisted on buying lunch out. I went with her thinking I knew what I was going to have, b... Read more
A Better Day
Thank you, Spark Family, for your support! You made the difference today! At certain times of the day, it was almost as if you were with me, talking with me, helping me think before I made a food choice. My attitude is what is better today.

I am a Wreck! First Step of Twelve
The rent bill arrived Friday night. When I did my forecast of funds for the next two weeks, I was stunned to see that, after all of the bills are paid, I will be in the hole about $16. No groceries for two weeks, no nothing else. My finances ... Read more
