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

So Thankful to Be Home!

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

I Think I Screwed Up! Should I Start Over?!

Thursday, June 10, 2010      7 comments

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

Thursday, June 10, 2010      8 comments

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

D-Day Reflections

Sunday, June 06, 2010      5 comments

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

Charlie Wedemeyer & Other Thoughts

Friday, June 04, 2010      5 comments

Charlie Wedemeyer died yesterday. He was one of my heroes, though we never actually met. He was a local high school football coach before and after he was diagnosed with ALS. When I came to the Bay Area, through happy circumstance, I became a... Read more

Mouth Breathing, Aches and Pains & No Nutrition Report

Thursday, June 03, 2010      10 comments

Those who saw yesterday's blog learned that today was going to be an off schedule day. Little did I know how off. I woke up with a massive sinus infection. I called in sick and skipped most of what I was going to do today (the court, the voti... Read more

No Pizza Binge for Me!

Thursday, June 03, 2010      11 comments

Thank you, SparkFriends, for your support yesterday! You REALLY touched me! Today was an amazing day! Just walking throughout the day, I got in something over 8K steps, 2.8 miles, so Eureka is closer! About 58 miles to go. My Achilles tend... Read more
