Been a long time gone.
My last blog entry here was 3 years ago. That year, 2011, was eventful. The most outstanding event was the Bastrop County Complex wildfire in September. My home and over 1600 others were lost in the largest wildfire in Texas history.
I w... Read more
Here We Go Again
Another new year, a renewal of hope. Last year was a bust...went into deep depression about the middle of January and never came out of it. Wanted to lose a measly 10 pounds, but put on 10 instead. Now I need to lose 20 pounds. Sigh.
Effort... Read more
Starting "date night" with DH of 23 years?
Situation is pretty much unchanged since my last blog entry. My latest attempt to connect is trying to set up a "date night" with DH where we'll play Yahtzee ( or some other game) & share a take-out meal face to face at the dining table. We hav... Read more
Trying to get my spark back.
Since about the third week in January I've been in a deep depression. Part of me (about 25%) is really trying to dig out, part of me (another 25%) is patiently hopeful & waiting for it to pass, and the rest of me is for crawling into a hole and ... Read more
Hoppy New Year?
Wanting to start 2010 on the right foot, so to speak, I signed up for the new bootcamp challenge thingy. Must say, if I were a person who thought exercise videos HAD to be followed exactly I would have dropped out about 3 minutes into the 10 mi... Read more
Not likely I'll be very consistent the next two months. Started my holiday cleaning schedule, menu planning, gift selection, etc. I have managed to address the potassium and magnesium issues by adding a "no-salt" potassium seasoning and a magne... Read more
Who is this "New Me" gonna be?
Changed my avatar to the SP "new me" graphic not because of the diet/exercise programs I'm working, but because I had a week's worth of making rounds to my doctors for checkups and blood tests & results not as I would like. Got two new meds add... Read more
I'm doomed! Been reading all the articles on health and wellness and everybody seems to believe I need a social network. Not gonna happen. I'm shy. Really, really shy. I don't play well with others. I'm doomed!
When I was a child playing ou... Read more
Same old song..who knew?
I just noticed that 4 of my last 5 status updates have to do with being tired. That's not just a physical tiredness, it's a bone deep, brain draining, life sucking tiredness. It's the new ME!
So why, you ask, am I so tired? Well, ...coul... Read more
Moving right along
I'm moving myself to SP stage two today. I guess that's progress, even though I wish I could shed weight a bit faster. What is most discouraging is not the POUNDS so much as what I read about where those pounds are. According to SP article, o... Read more
A small celebration, I think...
I've made two whole weeks on SP, doing all the good stuff. For a person who really sucks when it comes to consistency, that's a pretty good accomplishment. And it seems to be having an effect...I more often feel more like my "old self" from b... Read more
And OH! the sacrifices I make....
Ok, so maybe it's not that big a sacrifice...I signed up on facebook so I could "spread the spark." For a moderately "computer literate" person it's no big deal setting up profile, uploading pictures, etc. But remember, I'm still feeling the ef... Read more
It always happens. I made the mistake of telling DH I'm trying to stick to a healthy diet. So this morning he brings me an ooey gooey fruit filled kolache. Just say "No, thank you," you say? Not to DH....he pouts.... Read more
Catching on...I think
I'm a little slow on the uptake in social situations, so I've been puzzling about "goodies" and such. Eureka! I think I'm catching on. Left some thank you comments to all the nice ppl who have welcomed me to groups and sent along goodies. Ho... Read more
Wow! I've actually reached day 5 in my Sparkpeople routine. Not doing too badly, either. Now let me see if I can hold it together over the weekend.... Read more
