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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

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
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
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
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
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
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
