Even Sparkers have bad days

Sunday, September 30, 2012      8 comments

I've had a pretty successful year, and I am pleased with my progress. But Friday and yesterday were the kinds of days that fill me with frustration. If it wasn't nailed down or actively running away, I was eating it. I'm not sure what set o... Read more

Not Broken

Friday, September 28, 2012      7 comments

I fell off my bike yesterday. Actually, I sort of tipped over on my bike. Rather like Artie Johnson and his tricycle back in the Laugh-In days. I had to come to a stop when a car stopped in front of me, and I was trying to gear down with th... Read more

One year on Spark People

Thursday, September 20, 2012      15 comments

Today is my first SparkVersary. In some ways it seems like a long time coming, in others I can hardly believe a year has passed. A year ago I was teetering on the brink of 300 pounds and horrified with myself. I suffered a lot of back pain,... Read more

Ankle: tender, but much improved

Monday, September 17, 2012      9 comments

It appears that I didn't do permanent damage to myself, and the ankle is quite walkable. Still tender at certain angles, and a little swollen, but it bears my weight fine and I'm not really limping anymore. I will be very cautious when I wa... Read more

Sprained ankle?! NOOOO!!!!

Saturday, September 15, 2012      12 comments

Argh! Taking a walk with DD this evening, I didn't notice that the sidewalk was cut away and managed to step on the edge of a well-disguised hole just perfectly to flip my ankle and fall to the ground. We were about 3/4 of a mile from home, and ... Read more

Miracle Mom

Wednesday, September 12, 2012      13 comments

Sunday I was sitting in my car on the shoulder of I-70, sobbing as my sister told me that Mom had been intubated, was unconscious, and I was probably never going to talk to my mother again. Yesterday evening, Mom called me to say hi. She is... Read more

Update on Mom

Monday, September 10, 2012      5 comments

Mom is doing better, but the doctors have no idea what's wrong with her. Her body basically was shutting down yesterday, but none of the tests they did revealed anything. By evening, though, she had stabilized, and today she seems to be getting ... Read more

Pity stress doesn't burn calories

Sunday, September 09, 2012      10 comments

My mother is very ill. She may die. She is 2000 miles away. I need tomorrow to work out my calendar, and then will probably be flying out there on Tuesday. So I will likely be absent for a while. I can hardly form sentences. I am... Read more

A new definition of YOYO dieting, and why I'll stick to real food

Bike followup

Friday, August 24, 2012      6 comments

I made it home under my own power yesterday, despite further realizing that part of my problem might well have been not eating anything all day. It was a slow ride, but I made it. Felt punky for the rest of the day, but I believe that I ma... Read more

Auto-bike

Thursday, August 23, 2012      4 comments

Yesterday I felt very sick. Today, I had two court dockets to attend; 9:30 am and 1:00 pm. I decides that I would drive to the morning one, run an errand, come home, and then decide if I felt up to biking back to the afternoon one. DD came home ... Read more

Just keep swimming....

Monday, August 20, 2012      4 comments

Biked 15 miles yesterday, which helped the moodiness some, then had a bout of migraine syndrome, which might explain much of the moodiness. Marginally migrainey this morning--headache is vaguely there, but much more with the nausea and light sen... Read more

Moody

Sunday, August 19, 2012      4 comments

I'm just a bundle of fury and crankiness today. I'm not used to this. I'm usually a pretty happy person.... Read more

Ride on the road, ride on the road, ride on the road!

Saturday, August 18, 2012      5 comments

A friend of mine was just hit by a car while riding her bike. She wasn't badly injured, thank goodness. When we discussed the circumstances of the accident, my suspicions were confirmed: she'd been riding on the sidewalk, and was hit by a ... Read more

Confused about the seasons

Thursday, August 16, 2012      5 comments

I almost headed out the door without sunscreen today. When I stepped outside and realized it was 85 degrees, I changed my mind! Even though the year has gone really fast, in my mind Pedal to the Point was the culmination of summer. Now that... Read more
