Friday, October 21, 2016      4 comments

Worked until 2 a.m. Up and on the way to the office to turn in my pager. Then going to the pool for water aerobics. Then Gary and I are going away for the weekend to the Carolina Renaissance Festival. We're going to forget about all our troubles... Read more
Tired and Angry
Thursday, October 20, 2016      2 comments

I had to work late last night (not unusual) and I'm more tire than usual. I'm also a little sore, and I'm sure it's because I really push when doing laps and water aerobics. On top of that, my husband got an unsettling phone call this morning.... Read more
Don't Work to Lose Weight, Work to Be Healthy!
Wednesday, October 19, 2016      4 comments

I was reading a blog about a guy who lost hundreds of pounds. One of the things he said was "I was focused only on losing weight, not becoming healthy..." That really resonated with me, because any time we talk about "health" it always seems t... Read more
Yay for Chobani!
Tuesday, October 18, 2016      3 comments

We pause now for a commercial break: I love Chobani flips! - AND they now have the "Simply 100" that only have 100 calories. Good way to stave off hunger and they're delicious! We now return to your regularly scheduled Spark day. ... Read more
I Survived the Weekend....
Monday, October 17, 2016      4 comments

...wish I could say the same for everyone I encountered, but that's part of social work. The good part is that the stress did not sway me from my goals. The compulsions are still under control. I have been binge-free for 58 days. I hav... Read more
Eating Out Does NOT Mean Eating Poorly
Saturday, October 15, 2016      5 comments

Not much time today as I'm on call and eating a quick lunch between cases. I have found that it's best to pack my lunch/snacks when I'm newly back in control. It keeps me from acting on those compulsions to binge when I have something close at... Read more
Happy Friday! What Are Your Healthy Plans for the Weekend?
Friday, October 14, 2016      4 comments

I often hear people talk about the weekend as being "my chance to take a break from my diet and exercise." I used to think about "cheat days" and "rest days" and just LONG for them. Oh, how messed up is that kind of thinking (and I speak these... Read more
I Ate A Jelly Donut - and That's Such A Win!
Thursday, October 13, 2016      9 comments

Yep. Yesterday I ate a jelly donut. My husband had said something about donuts a few days ago. I have been wanting one. I'm not really a "sweets" binger, but I really wanted one. I was on the road all day yesterday flying to Tennessee and th... Read more
I Am a Super Hero!
Wednesday, October 12, 2016      1 comments

Going to the airport used to sound more like this: "OMG, I will probably have to walk forever because there is no close parking. That means I will sweat like a pig. Better just put your hair up, even though it's so much prettier down. And for Go... Read more
Busy, Busy, Busy....and Still Time For Healthy Choices!
Tuesday, October 11, 2016      6 comments

Had training today so didn't get to exercise in the morning. But that didn't stop me! Came home and rode 8.25 miles on my bike in 55 minutes. Tomorrow I have to fly to Tennessee and drive my son's Jeep back that we bought from them (could... Read more

Hurricane Matthew came and we have a little bit of lingering wind gusts, but no flooding, no injuries, and no property damage. I am pleased. Walked and biked several miles today to check on neighbors. Thank the gods. I GOT THIS.... Read more
Hurricane Matthew is On His Way
Saturday, October 08, 2016      4 comments

Looks like we're supposed to get at the least Tropical Storm force winds and a high probability of Hurricane winds up to 75 mph. The biggest worry is that we're slated to get up to 15" of rain. So hoping for the best. Hope all my SP friends st... Read more
Once You Go Big!
Friday, October 07, 2016      2 comments

Just for fun, I wrote a song about my experiences back in my "serial dating days" about guys who would basically write off the big girls, just because we're big. Now, I'm not one of those "Fat Acceptance" people who think that if people want to ... Read more

The weekend was really busy. I played Saturday night. Got home and in bed about 11:30 pm. Got up at 2:30 am and drove 4 hours to Lexington, NC to pick up my younger son Joshua. Then we drove almost 4 more hours to Tennessee to spend time wit... Read more
Late Night and Still Treating Myself Right!
Saturday, October 01, 2016      6 comments

I ended up out in the field until almost 10:00 pm last night, then back at the agency until almost 1:00 am this morning on the phone and doing documentation. Here are the good choices I made: Choice #1: Dinner - there's a Wendy's nearby. ... Read more
