Difficult Few Days
Wednesday, March 27, 2013      0 comments

Last weekend we had a birthday party and a potluck. Last night, a fundraiser for our son's school at a local restaurant. This next weekend, Easter. Lots of heavy, rich foods and still not able to engage in aerobic exercise due to my knee injur... Read more
Started Walking Again

Unfortunately, the doctor still isn't sure whether I need surgery on my knee. He likes to have the MRI confirm a diagnosis, not make the diagnosis. My knee was still too swollen and mobility too limited for him to make a proper assessment. He... Read more
Hanging in there

My knee is still too swollen and mobility still too limited to tell if I need surgery or not. I'm a little frustrated as I'd like to know what I'm facing, but still feeling lucky that things were not worse. I am still focusing on core an... Read more

I don't blog much - I just don't have the time. But I thought I'd write this one down so I remember in the future. I've tried taken some days/weeks off from tracking to see what would happen. It also coincided with some trips, birthdays, ... Read more
Cancelled Weight Watchers Today

I joined Weight Watchers Online in October with a friend. I know WW doesn't work for everyone, but it really worked for me. I liked the structure of the points but also the flexibility to grab a piece of fruit or eat some veggies if I was still... Read more
Should Do List
Wednesday, July 04, 2012      1 comments

Like me, I suspect you all have a huge "should do" list. All the things we "should" be doing but aren't for any variety of reasons. While time certainly tops the reasons for why I don't get to more on my should list, second certainly is choosin... Read more
