bursting into song
Started choir at my church tonight, and tomorrow night is the first rehearsal for a big chorus that is run by the local University. I love to sing, but haven't been able to for several years because my work schedule didn't accomodate that (work... Read more
quit the research study, on with exercise!!
As I had said, I entered a research study about diabetes and exercise, and they didn't want me to increase my exercise. Well, the stress test took almost two weeks to schedule, and then...their computer wasn't working!! I got an e-mail today a... Read more
Kind of low on energy today, but I've hung in there and done IT none-the-less. I've done my WiiFit, and my 15 minutes of constructive something around the house, and tracked faithfully. I've looked over on calories both of the last two days, b... Read more
Glad I went to church today
Went to church this morning, and as we were putting the coffee cups in the dishwasher, one of the women was talking about going to the University gym here. Since we are both employees, we have a reduced rate access to it. She goes there all the... Read more
Feeling a little sheepish about this.
Hmmm. Decided today that I didn't even remember what was in the Diet Stage 1 stuff. I had moved on to Stage 2 three years ago when I started this, and thought I had just forgotten. Nope. When I went back and read it this time, when I am real... Read more
Do It Afraid
For a number of years, I attended a retreat center in southerm Missouri called Diana's Grove, which offered leadership training. Each year there was a Rites Team, a group of people who were working at an especially intense level that year, movi... Read more
Better day today
Things are back on track for me again today, thank heavens. I have met both my goal of not eating out when I'm tired and hungry, got out of the grocery store without junk food when I was tired and hungry, and have done my 15 minutes of construc... Read more
Feeling a little discouraged today. My weight has gone UP the last three days, in spite of doing everything "right" except for a small glitch yesterday (around 250 calories over the top of my limit), with a LOT of exercise to off-set it. I am ... Read more
Getting stuff accomplished.
Went to GoodWill today, and bought three skirts and a skirt suit for $16.00, none of which currently fit me. I was doing one of the motivation things last week, and realized that I usually fall off the weight-loss wagon about the time I have to... Read more
Struggle not to poop out today.
Yesterday was so energizing, I thought maybe this time I was going to keep going on my goal to do something constructive each day without a struggle, but no.... Today, I spent much of my time on the couch trying to convince myself to get up and... Read more
I am so proud of myself. I just started my new goal this morning, and whoa!!!...
I promised yesterday that starting today, I would do something constructive around the house and/or yard for an hour every weekend day, and 15 minutes every... Read more
Ate out tonight. I have no intention of giving up eating out alone altogether. I really enjoy it. I take a book and enjoy being waited on, and not having to cook or clean up afterwards. I have decided that once a week is allowable, and I will ... Read more
Keepin' on keepin' on. Doing well so far. No, I take that back. I am just plain doing well. I refuse to even think of this as "so far", which implies that I expect to fail again. No way. Failure is impossible, because I won't let it happen... Read more
Living in interesting times
Did better with overall calories today--to the point where I am far enough below the minimum, I really need to find something else to eat later, but right now I'm really not hungry.
Signed up for a research study on diabetes and exercise ... Read more
Ate what I thought were healthy, reasonably portioned meals today, measuring religiously, only to find that I was right at the top of my calorie limit, and over my fat limit, for the day. No snacks tonight!!... Read more
