Monday, October 08, 2012      7 comments

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?
Sunday, October 07, 2012      10 comments

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

Saturday, October 06, 2012      5 comments

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

Wednesday, October 03, 2012      3 comments

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

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. ... Read more
I am a Wreck! First Step of Twelve
Sunday, September 30, 2012      4 comments

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
I got to see Shuttle Endeavor fly over Moffett Field!
Friday, September 21, 2012      14 comments

Last night, on TV, I saw Shuttle Endeavor fly low over Phoenix so former Rep. Gabby Giffords and her astronaut husband could see her overhead. It was an inspiring clip! She also flew over White Sands, NM (one of my favorite places) which was an... Read more

I have not heard any more news about Mom, but I did learn that the girls do not expect that I will be able to fly out there to see her before, as one said, Mom transitions, but they will have the service in the town where she lives in MO. Then ... Read more

I just learned that Mom Angell has been in a convalescent home for two months, was moved to the hospital (another stroke is suspected, and I did not know this was not the first) and may be moved to hospice care tomorrow. The girls think this ma... Read more
The Price of Tonnage
Monday, September 10, 2012      7 comments

I've gained a few pounds recently. I don't need a scale to tell me that. My joints feel it, the change in my center of gravity reminds me of it and the increased lack of balance underscores it. My clothes don't hide it, my short sleeves d... Read more
A Blog I Have Been Avoiding
Sunday, September 09, 2012      10 comments

I have not wanted to share what's going on, or what's not going on, in my SP journey. But, one of the tenets of my SP family is that we do reach out. As I said in my status this morning, I have read many wonderful and inspirational blogs today... Read more
A Stressful Day and a Small Victory!
Wednesday, September 05, 2012      9 comments

I am absolutely overwhelmed at work, but that is nothing new. That stress is becoming routine. One of my students confronted me about a workload adjustment I did last week, accused me of disrespecting her and then cut the conversation short v... Read more
I walked today at lunch and almost every step hurt, but I did it!
Wednesday, September 05, 2012      10 comments

I walked today at lunch. It was not a long walk in distance or in step count. Nearly every step hurt because of my weight gain and bursitis. But I did it. I thought about walking again this evening, but sat down, turned on the news and that ... Read more
