This morning, someone brought in doughnuts. I love cake doughnuts. I love chocolate cake doughnuts. I love doughnuts. It was almost noon when I learned about the doughnuts and I did not have any carbo planned in my lunch. I could have had t... Read more

Is the Volvo a Sign of a Brighter Tomorrow?

Monday, June 21, 2010      3 comments

Virtual journey update: about 50 miles from Eureka, moving slowly, kind of burnt out and disinterested. I realized today that I really don't like my present work situation, realized on a different level. Last week, I mentioned about the at... Read more

Father's Day 2010

Sunday, June 20, 2010      6 comments

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

Sunday, June 20, 2010      10 comments

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

Friday, June 18, 2010      7 comments

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

Thursday, June 17, 2010      9 comments

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. ... Read more

Thursday, June 17, 2010      8 comments

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

Tuesday, June 15, 2010      6 comments

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

Flag Day

Monday, June 14, 2010      8 comments

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?

Sunday, June 13, 2010      9 comments

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

Saturday, June 12, 2010      11 comments

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

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

Tuesday, June 08, 2010      7 comments

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!

Monday, June 07, 2010      8 comments

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
