Moving Ahead

Thursday, February 04, 2016      11 comments

During the days of sickness, I had some significant moments of clarity. One of these has been the need to take greater care of myself. I went to the doctor's today. I am going to work on baby steps meal planning. I made my appt for midday ... Read more

Quick Break

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      7 comments

I am mending well and have been back to work this week. I am a rockstar at my job, and it has been good to be back. Here are some things I noted today that I am very grateful for: 1) hubby - all the little things he does for me are so... Read more

The Lies We Tell Ourselves

Friday, January 29, 2016      10 comments

It is innocuous. You don't even realize that you are doing it. A little kernel of doubt was sprouted, years ago maybe, and you let that seed take hold because maybe at one time, you did not feel strong enough to refute it. Oh, I have been ... Read more

Hello friends, My legs are starting to clear up! Hurrah. It is by the teeniest of margins, but it is somewhere to start! WOO HOO! I hope you are all having a great day! Best!... Read more

Nobody puts Baby in a corner...but sickness

Tuesday, January 26, 2016      7 comments

I am still here, but I am currently sidelined. I had the sinusitis bout and then got put on a major antibiotic, which apparently maybe the ONE medication I AM allergic too. Now on steriods heading into the day where I take 4 pills throughout the... Read more

Baby Steps Gone Big

Saturday, January 16, 2016      10 comments

For me, little successes encourage me to stay motivated, and little successes can steamroll into big, giant successes. I am taking a little self indulgent time here to celebrate my successes this week. 1) I blogged 6 out of 7 days. ... Read more

Whew! I am tired out and walking around like the tin man. I am sore and stiff, but doing okay. Despite my aches and pains today, I still walked up the big hill. It takes me a little while to climb it, but once I am there, I realize I am g... Read more

Drumroll, please

I went back to the gym tonight. I have 2 more appointments scheduled for next week: Tuesday and Thursday., Don, my trainer, had me work on the Hammer strength that used a push and pull motion. Guaranteed to have T-Rex arms tomorrow, in fact I ki... Read more

Building the Mindset

Wednesday, January 13, 2016      11 comments

This is going to sound ridiculous, but I don't want to win 1.3 billion dollars or whatever that amount is. I am happy with my life, just as it is, and more money would add a few niceties, I suppose, but it would not do much more than that. ... Read more

Following Through

Tuesday, January 12, 2016      6 comments

Got up and went to the doc's this morning. Did not anticipate the huge crowd in front of me this morning, giving blood. Waited about an hour to be seen, but at least when I got in there, my blood flowed freely and I did not have to be a pincushi... Read more

On the Verge

Monday, January 11, 2016      9 comments

Went to the doc's tonight after work. Need to return in the a.m. for a fasting blood test. I am praying that my #'s are good - because if they are decent enough, I will be SET FREE from the diabetes drug. Whoop Whoop. Doc is changing my BP medic... Read more

Weekend Fun

Saturday, January 09, 2016      8 comments

I love the weekend. Down time! Well, kind of. This weekend I opted (at the last minute) to join hubby at the "free" sale they were having at his mom's house. Glad I went. It was time for us to spend together and a few other relatives stopped ... Read more

All in Stride

Friday, January 08, 2016      9 comments

Today was a much better day. Panic attack passed. Walking improved - no twinging out of the left leg. Not quite at 4k steps again, but mighty close. I am absolutely okay with where I am. I will build up to more. I walked up the big hill again, a... Read more

Sidelined in short term

Thursday, January 07, 2016      8 comments

Drats and a half. I had a hard time walking around today, so I knew enough to get off my leg. A staff member drove me to my car, because I was concerned I oculd not make it on my own. I am babying it right now, but hoping to feel better in th... Read more

Progress, not Perfection

Wednesday, January 06, 2016      12 comments

Much to my delight, I have been making headway with the fitbit. From starting out at 2k steps a day, I increased 2 days this week to move up to 3500, and today, I crossed the threshold into 4k. WHOOP!!! That is good progress for me. I still hur... Read more
