Mostly a good weekend...
Friday was Mr A's birthday... it was very nice. He wanted grilled salmon and steak, so we just bought some good stuff from the meat case and had a feast. He wanted software for his birthday, so he downloaded that and was happy.
Saturday, w... Read more
Today's e-mail quote...
They who give have all things; they who withhold have nothing.

That one struck me this morning. I have a co-worker who just annoys the snot out of me. She is greedy and hypocritical and yet puts on a nicey-nice mas... Read more
11 months + 2 days in MaintenanceVille.
I actually meant to blog the milestone on Sunday... but was busy getting lessons sent in ridiculous packaging... good ones, but my brain was kinda 'splodey.
I ran a 10 minute mile on Sunday, so that is going well. I also did 30 day shred l... Read more
Getting back up on my really good horse... and awaiting orders.
Well, I am working my way back to the vigorous exercise routine I had a few months ago, I slacked off for a few months, and while it's easier to restart from where I am now, it's still hard to reestablish those good habits. However I have no ch... Read more
I can't believe I didn't blog this...
Friday was the big day. I was sworn into the US Army as a 1st Lieutenant & nurse.
I have a 3 year commitment. I will get orders in 4-6 weeks to report to my Reserve unit and then I will drill locally until I go to officer basic in late Ja... Read more
Finally got the word...
...this has been a year of "ups" for me, as in life hanging not lefts or rights, but ups... things that take you by surprise and make you reevaluate your life...
Some of my "ups" have been very personal and intense, some have been with my ... Read more
Almost a month since my last entry... whew!
Well, I luckily haven't gained any weight beyond a typical 1-2 lb fluctuation in the last month... especially since I have been routinely wandering off the reservation regarding my eating (which I'm now trying to reign in) and falling off the wa... Read more
Can I have ear infections for $100, Alex?
I'm 99% sure that is what I have. I ran it through the Web MD symptom checker and that was consistently top of the list.
So I have been home treating with nasal rinses, echinacea & goldenseal herbs and rest. The fever finally broke over... Read more
Not a good week for exercise...
Well life has totally caught up with me this week... the night I'd planned to take off, Tuesday due to having a friend over for dinner was fine. I just didn't plan to get sick with whatever I'm sick with... I'm dizzy, have a fever and feel fati... Read more
Emotionally all over the map... and maintaining in the midst of it...
I have been on an emotional roller coaster for sorts for the past few weeks... great one day, bad the next, great the next... it is very hard to explain.
I have had the chance to really reconnect with one of my oldest, dearest friends recen... Read more
Body Image Issues: They don't go away, they just change...
During my jog this morning, I had a comment by my good friend Jessica pop into my head... we had been talking the other week and she was being concerned with being overweight and I said that I had my own body image issues (saggies, stretch marks... Read more
The last few weeks flew by in a blur!
The H1N1 Novel Flu Virus has died down for now... so we are not at high alert right now, but surveillance efforts are still increased mainly due to the fear about the mutations this flu virus will inevitably undergo... which could be good or bad... Read more
Hip better... and *DOH*... today is 8 months in Maintenance!
Despite the tough week, this is a great thing to realize!
I actually managed to do Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred level one today and that felt GREAT... I am having to ice my hip a little bit. I'll walk later to hopefully get in my 10K ste... Read more
An incredibly hard week...
By the time I got home last night, I felt like I'd been beaten with a baseball bat. There was very little downtime at work... with the rise of new flu and a pertussis (whooping cough) outbreak spilling over into the county I work in, I was very... Read more
Reflecting back again...
Being chosen as a featured motivator earlier this week was really cool and yet I don't feel I've done that much... just kind of decided on my course and followed it until I was done. It was hard some days but overall, it was what it was. In so... Read more
