I Am Not the Token Cripple and Other Thoughts
One of the things I did not mention in my blog last night was my primary reason for feeling blue. A coworker, someone I trust, told me her boss said that management went through every employee's name last year when they laid off a large number ... Read more
Slippery Slope Towards Depression But Not Using Food as Medication
I moved to the Bay Area in late 1986 and immediately found a job at a small privately held services company. I ended up working there for nearly 15 years during which time I held 7 or 8 jobs. In a sense, I grew up in that company. I left that... Read more
Swirling Brain Means Diminished Focus
Today was a very strange day. Over the past few days, I have received boxes at home, but had not had a chance to open them until today. Turns out my brother sent books to me for my birthday! One was a book I really wanted and the other two wou... Read more
My girls went jogging at lunch time!
This is an earlier-in-the-day post for me because my lunchtime exercise was one that made me laugh! I had been on my feet most of the morning, carrying files here and there up and down the stairs and, when I had to use the elevator, I used that ... Read more
Couch Potato Day is Not Always a Bad Thing
Surprisingly, I did not sleep well last night. I should have after that glorious hike! When I did get up, I was STIFF! My right arch hurt for most of the day and it was just hard to move at all. My plan to do a bunch of errands was torpedoed, ... Read more
I hardly know where to begin. Do I post at all? Do I share only about my activities today? Or do I dedicate today in memoriam? Or shall I attempt to cover everything that today was?
Today was the planned delayed birthday day with my partne... Read more
Tears, A Hug, Food and I'm Numb
This morning, I sent an email to my friend asking if our rescheduled-from-last-week ;unch date was on. She responded affirmatively and then called me to tell me that a former coworker died yesterday after a very, very, very long battle with bre... Read more
I hope this is the worst performance day of my SP life.
Thanks to you SparkFriends who commented on yesterday's blog. Your support is deeply appreciated! I fell into an old habit last night: I stayed up too late because I was not tired. Perhaps I was not tired because I did not want to go to sleep... Read more
Kirsti, Delilah, Frankie, Food and Exercise
Today was my cousin Kirsti's birthday, her second in heaven. She would have been 45 today. She died in a solo car wreck on her way to work December 30, 2008. The youngest of my generation, she should not have been the 2nd to go. She left 3 c... Read more
Day on Auto Pilot
I didn't want to get up this morning, which, in my new SP life is new. I went to work and quickly realized that I was tired. I had already had coffee, I had already started water and had breakfast and still could not get the brain in gear. I ... Read more
Running - Day One
This morning started with a cup of Peruvian coffee, a nice light roast. Not one you'd drink when you need a coffee jolt, but great for a Sunday morning. Then I put on my new shorts, new socks, new running shoes and my new sports bra (shirt was... Read more
An Odd Day
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
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
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)
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
