The wireless internet has been down at home for most of the last week. The IT guy has been working on it, but doesn't have it resolved yet. Work has been way to crazy busy to log there. I guess it's good that I was mentally prepared to go wit... Read more
Copping Out or Transition?
I'm not sure if I'm copping out or in a transition. These things I know for sure:
* I'm tired.
* My body hurts.
* Sleep has been full of crazy dreams and restlessness.
* Work has been nuts.
* I don't always want to log food, so I'm ... Read more
Several days ago, my internet stopped working at home. This put me in a quandary. I tried to problem solve what I could about the computer without success. The IT guy that I usually ask for help was out of town. It does not work for me to tr... Read more
I have struggled my whole adult life with confidence. Other people have it; I don't. I've gone through counseling for the many layers of issues that could have contributed to it. I've had people tell me that I should just magically make up co... Read more
Natural Appetite Suppressant
It was a lovely fall evening: sunny, but nice and cool. I made pumpkin bread earlier today, and ate two slices before counting the cost. That meant the dinner on my plate would be fresh Baba Ganoush and vegetables. That's a bit light, but it ... Read more
Facing Fear: Day 2
I did not sleep well last night. My dreams didn't really have the subject matter of going to the gym in the morning. Still somehow everything turned sinister or just plain weird in my head. Then I'd wake up and be fitful for a while. Not my ... Read more
Today I am proud of myself for two reasons. First of all, I must confess that I am a long term gym-o-phobic to the point of panic attacks. With the whiplash and concussion, I've had a really hard time coming up with low impact cardio that mak... Read more
Final Goal in Sight!
For awhile now, I've been teetering on the edge of an intermediate weight loss goal, but not quite reaching it. Today it came together! Actually, I blew past it by a little, but that's ok.
I realized this morning that it's happening. I... Read more
For most of my Spark journey, my nutrition tracker was not set up to track my sodium intake. A week or two ago, I added it to my list. I've been shocked to find how much of it I've been eating. A lot of the go to foods that make snacks and pr... Read more
How You Choose to Live
During the summer, we have lots of temporary help at work that live in dorm housing. Since there are no cooking facilities in their homes, we also provide them meals. The rest of us can choose to buy into the meal package or not. Two of my co... Read more
I was hit with the urge to make minestrone. Last night I soaked the beans. On my lunch hour I ran them in the pressure cooker. After work I walked to the store for a couple ingredients I was missing. Then it all came together into a beautifu... Read more
Happy to be Active
This was a much better day. It all began with a strategy. I have been sluggish and out of it after most of my medical appointments lately. I decided that if I was going to get anything done, it would need to be early.
I set the alarm, ... Read more
Working Through Disappointment
I'm disappointed to not be feeling very well today. I had plans, but most of them have to wait until another day. One of the challenging things about this whiplash and concussion is the way it has affected my mind. Foggy thinking and losing c... Read more
The Power of Kindness
People have been so very kind to me today. One of the people greeting at the door at church this morning was a woman in my small group. As I wrote out my name tag, she asked how I was doing, since we haven't seen each other for awhile. I said... Read more
Storm In & Out
This has been such a turbulent day. In the physical realm, we've had a taste of high wind with intermittent heavy rain. It's been quite enjoyable, except I wish it would just send the rain all over to the fires that need it. But alas, I don't... Read more
