But, Sparky, you need to understand!!
Being as sick as I've been, eating has been next to impossible. First, it's phenomenally painful to swallow anything other than tepid water--and even that hurts some. Second, my appetite has been pretty much zero, so what I've eaten has been the... Read more
Waking up thinking you might be feeling a little bit better--then swallowing water and being brought almost to your knees from the pain. I really want this to stop.... Read more
Not doing spectacularly here...
When the cast of South Park, Natalie Portman, and Charlton Heston are all sitting on your bed, coaxing you to drink some water, does that fall under the category of dream or hallucination?
Either way, the end result was that I woke up enoug... Read more
My uvula looks like a stalactite sporting a coat of green lichen. Swallowing takes an act of will. The doctor is concerned that my throat will swell closed and admonished me to call 911 at the first sign of shortness of breath.
So what's th... Read more
Sore throat and joint aches
I do not like this, Sam I am. I'm so frustrated, seeing these beautiful days go by and not able to do much more than walk to the bathroom and back.... Read more
Beautiful, sunny day. And where am I? Rolling about in bed with a stomach ache. I think I poisoned myself yesterday while handling some raw meat. I woke up abruptly and violently ill. So much for biking today. I just hope it departs with the sa... Read more
Trimming back on Spark Teams
When I got home from a weekend away from Spark People and found more than 100 emails in my inbox, I had to admit that I have a bit of a problem. As much as SP is helpful and you all are terrifically supportive, it's taking over my life a little.... Read more
Driving the car is not exercise!
I'm visiting friends this weekend, about 150 miles away. I'm making the drive alone.
At one point in my life, a 3-4 hour car trip would mean that I had to take snacks for the road. Those snacks would be cookies and candy and chips and soda... Read more
Grateful for support
Thank you all for encouraging me on my last blog entry. I've switched my icon to Dory so that I remember to "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming..."
Spark friends are awesome.... Read more
My weight is stuck in the low 260s and just won't budge. This is frustrating. I want to be a machine: xcals+xexercise = xweightloss. I want the math to work. It's just not happening right now.
I know that I can't let this discourage me. If ... Read more
T-minus sweetie time!
Hubby should be rolling up any minute. After 10 days, I am very anxious to have him back! I'm glad of the time, because it's wonderful to do my spring cleaning while he is out, but it's a long time without my sweetie.
I should have been in ... Read more
The anatomy of dinner decisions
The 5-year-old who lives in my head: WAAAAH! You didn't feed me ALL DAY!!! I'm starving!!
Me: I'm sorry. This day didn't go anything like it was supposed to. Let's make dinner now.
5yo: WAAAAH!!!! I'm too hungry for cooking!! Let's eat... Read more
Davy Jones! Oh no!
So sad to read that Davy Jones has died. I remember The Monkees TV show from when I was in grade school. My own idols aren't supposed to be dropping dead; it's too soon for that!... Read more
The sun is shining, and my house is getting cleaned out! The major declutter continues. How do we accumulate so much stuff?? It's pretty crazy.
I feel like getting my life in order is directly related to getting my healthy living in order.... Read more
I haven't decided about plank positions yet. They are hard to do and make me miserable, which is an indication that they're good exercise, but I'm not sure exactly what it is they are really accomplishing. Except instilling dread in my very soul... Read more
