Cosmic Joke Demoted and An Odd Day
I had my morning visit with Mr. Scale this morning as part of my cosmic joke week. He gave me another 1.2 pounds. I have decided daily visits are not for me. Mr. Scale gets to see me once a week. I know there are others who weigh every day, ... Read more
Tired, Hungry, Making Progress & Day 4 of Cosmic Joke
I woke up this morning feeling as if I had never closed my eyes. I found myself thinking about food and trying to convince myself that if I ate something, I would not be tired. The thoughts continued even after a good breakfast and snack.

Falling in Love and Day 3 of the Cosmic Joke
The scale this morning showed I gained .2 from yesterday. I almost laughed! I am not believing any of the numbers (see my blog from yesterday and the day before). TOM is threatening, but must be planning a big entrance because late is the word... Read more

Calorie Faux Pas
Today was a cool, grey, overcast day and it was perfect for a walk. I was surprised to discover that my long brisk walk did not aggravate my sore Achilles tendon. This was a deliberately long roundtrip walk from home to the local market. I di... Read more

Mahalo is the Hawai'ian word for thank you. I am planning a party for July 7 for my coworkers (selected) who've been so supportive during my Paralegal Studies journey. I will graduate June 26! This date is after the end-of-quarter crazies and ... Read more
Sodium, Fresh Choice and Tendonitis
Yesterday, I had lunch out with a friend and was stunned to see how much sodium was in my "healthy" choice. I resolved to increase my water and did so. I left a post on the nutrition message board asking if increased water would make up for t... Read more
Layoff = Overtime = Almost Zero Exercise
I am unhappy with myself! Despite better intentions, I did not get any meaningful exercise in today. I did walk the stairs every chance I had, but not much more than that. My lunchtime walk was replaced with lunch out with a coworker.

Rainy Easter Sunday and In a Rut
The storm front I felt days ago has arrived, but it is underwhelming. It is windy and very cold, but the rain changes by the minute - dripping, pouring, sprinkling. "I don't want to slip." "I don't want to risk getting sick." How easily those... Read more

Body Pretzel, Goals, Good Friday and Hungry!
Next to no exercise today. I knew the barometric pressure was changing before the clouds rolled in and the local weather reported the arrival of the storm. Almost every joint, almost every muscle is stiff, sore and unwilling to move! Most weat... Read more
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
