Back on the Mend

Sunday, October 11, 2015      7 comments

Back on the mend - with a residual cough that comes less and less. Still tired out but improving, as is the quality of my sleep - hacking less, snoozing more. I am on new meds, switching from actos to victoza for diabetes. The former CAUSED weig... Read more

Sickie here

Tuesday, October 06, 2015      6 comments

Just wanted to check in so all know I am fine, albeit sick. Ironically, they are giving out flu shots at work tomorrow, and I can't get one in this state. Feel like I may have it already. Hope to shake it though, as I have too much happening in ... Read more

My workplace

Thursday, October 01, 2015      5 comments

I got pretty bogged down at work today. I have several projects hitting and/or beyond deadline mixed with putting out minor fires and requests all over the place, and let me tell you, it feels like I can't breathe. I did take 25 minutes out of a... Read more

I went to the supermarket for the first time in a couple of weeks tonight. I didn't buy much - yogurt, english muffins (instead of bagels), low fat cheese, pretzels and a couple of ww frozen entrees. I didn't use the cane today, and I waited unt... Read more

Working it

Tuesday, September 29, 2015      6 comments

I am at my best when I am on a routine to work out. Right now, it's the gym, but it's also been walking in the past. When I have a course, and commit to it, I am at my best. I am then holding myself to a higher standard, because I can. I am then... Read more

One Good Choice

Monday, September 28, 2015      5 comments

Leads to another. Decided to push ahead with the workout tonight. Just about arrived in the nick of time. Did a lot of shoulder work tonight, as described by my trainer as: lat raises, overhead claps, shoulder flexations, headbangers, scarecrows... Read more

The 200 Project

Every day I face who I am. Every day I can feel something different. Some days, I am bouncing off the walls proud of myself and my accomplishments, and other days I feel like I have an enormous wall of obstacles in front of me. The trick for me ... Read more

I Own It

Wednesday, September 23, 2015      6 comments

Opened a notebook on my shelf this morning and wrote a few thoughts. It started with "I am scared to go back to the gym." I wrote down a few other scared of thoughts and then banished them. Gave myself permission to feel that way, and then ... Read more

Back to Biz

I am slammed at work activity right now, but I am making time for me. I left work tonight when it was light out, and that is a good boundary. Tomorrow, I have an appointment with my trainer, Don. I have to work the remainder of the week includin... Read more

Better and Better

Friday, September 18, 2015      6 comments

There's nothing that could have been done to improve my day. Work is still nuts, with a lot of pressure, and hours to cover, staff to train, people to hire, but I built my day around just doing what absolutely needed to be done today, and that w... Read more

Say Cheese

Tuesday, September 15, 2015      13 comments

I successfully fought off a craving for cheese tonight when I came home from work! Yes! Drinking my water and then headed for bed! I'll get a little shortchanged on sleep tonight, but I am in a busy work period. Things should improve in a week... Read more

I am beginning to pull it together. I have started reading the Beck Solution and today I wrote down my reasons I want to lose weight. Unlike my normal m.o., I've decided I am actually going to do the steps in order, as written, and singly. I too... Read more

Getting it Going Again

Thursday, September 10, 2015      13 comments

Today's motto is one foot in front of the other. I have challenges to overcome, but I have overcome them before. I am one of the strongest people I know. I am resilient. I have put on a favorite de-stressing scent this morning to help keep... Read more


Wednesday, September 09, 2015      10 comments

I needed to step back for a minute. Then that minute turned into a day, a week and nearly a month. It has been a rough go at the office. I find myself being the first one and the last one to leave. I woke up today and realized I don't like that ... Read more
