Father's Day 2010
Today was the fifth year without my dad, but it was not a terrible day. I tried not to think about the calendar and was not online much because I didn't want to see "Happy Fathers Day!" everywhere. I'm not bitter, there are just some days (Fat... Read more
Apprehensive About Tomorrow
Tendonitis flared up again. My heel has been sore most of the week, but I thought it was manageable. Today, I am really hobbled, so no real exercise today. Just going grocery shopping was too much!
I tried on my dresses that I bought for... Read more
Passage to India
After I blogged yesterday, I continued to eat and I ended up eating about 15 calories above goal. I didn't want to log them in, but I had just seen a post about being honest in the food tracker.
Today, I woke up HUNGRY! I forgot that lunch... Read more
Sleep is the Key
I stayed within range for most nutritional metrics, did not walk as much as I thought I would.
It was a sluggish day. The day dragged on and I was TIRED.
I am discovering that sleep really is more important than the way I live it.

So Thankful to Be Home!
I was hungry most of the day and ended up at the top of almost all nutritional metrics, but not over in anything...
I had some short walks during the day and the usual lots of walking at school. I will have to make some deliberate choices ... Read more
I Survived, So Far
Thank you, SparkFriends, for your support! I posted a status note this morning that I was feeling on edge. That was because of the stuff at work. I really appreciate the support my SP community has given me.
I had the follow up meeting wi... Read more
My morning status note was "Happy Birthday, Diane". What I did not articulate was that, if she were alive, today she would be 55. We met when I was 18 and were hot and cold friends through the years, roommates a couple of times, and both times... Read more
What Am I Doing? Where Am I Going?
I gained 1.5 pounds this week. I should not have been surprised,but I am disappointed. Some of that was coming off of the colonoscopy. I did not expect to have trouble eating food AFTER the procedure and, after dropping 2 pounds because of th... Read more
Stubbed My Toe on Pizza
I am amazed my eyes are still open! I just got home from the company outing to see the San Francisco Giants host the Oakland Athletics. The Giants won 6-2! BF is an As fan, so it is always a good natured rivalry.
The ticket included dinner... Read more
I Think I Screwed Up! Should I Start Over?!
Virtual journey update: 49.7 miles from Eureka (over 10K steps today WITH a sore heel)!
I aways try to get as many points as I can every day. Today, I read an article about the fitness tracker that I wish I had seen months ago. I think I... Read more
I Gave Away the Peanut M&Ms
Virtual Journey Update: As near as I can tell (I've lost a few days), I think I am 53 miles away from Eureka. I got in 4.1 miles and over 12K steps just walking at work and school. No pain, but my feet are swollen. Water retention is a hered... Read more
Not Back Yet
I survived the day of work, but did not put in the extra time I needed to. I ended up not walking to the polling place, but I still got in more than 9600 steps. I still can't each much. Everything I eat makes my tummy hurt! I imagine this wil... Read more
I Spread the Spark at the Hospital!
Today was the big day: my first colonoscopy. Even with the fast, I did not feel as hungry as I thought I would, though I felt a tiny bit queasy and lightheaded. That was overridden by the nerves. Everyone had told me the test would be the ea... Read more
I was not on this earth when D-Day happened, but, as with most families, I am touched by it, thanks to the remarkable "Greatest Generation". Both of my grandmothers were nurses during the war and that was my goal when I was in grade school. My... Read more
The summer cold has been in full force today. I HOPE it's going to be just about gone by Monday morning. I'm afraid Kaiser won't let me go through the procedure. I'm still mouth breathing and running the room cooler and using a blanket (hot a... Read more
