Thoughts on sleep, developed during my walk.
Monday, July 09, 2012      6 comments

I started down the road, and decided that I would walk all the way to Remie Rd. I was thinking it was about a 3 mile round trip. I was noticing all the different odors out there. The dry, dusty scent of Queen Anne's Lace and chicory. The odo... Read more
I think I was just tired.

Back to concentrating on getting enough sleep. I did end up coming home this morning with a headache, promptly fell asleep on the couch. I woke up nearly four hours later when my pager went off. Just as well--I might still be asleep otherwise... Read more
Another lazy day
Saturday, July 07, 2012      5 comments

After goofing off all day Wednesday, I have pretty well repeated the experience today. I didn't sleep well Thursday night (happens at least once every full moon), so I slept too hard last night, and woke with a slight headache and a queasy stom... Read more
Catch up blog.
Thursday, July 05, 2012      4 comments

Haven't been keeping up with my blogging at all well lately, so this is my "catch up blog". Went to the Girl Scout campout last weekend. Spent most of the day helping to launch canoes. I had muscles aching that I didn't even know I had,... Read more
July goal
Tuesday, July 03, 2012      8 comments

OK, it's a simple one. I made my annual examination appointment for July 24. I want to be at least hovering back at 200 lbs by that time. 209.2 today, so it's a stretch, but I really want to be back there before I see my doctor. My Wil... Read more
Sitting here teary eyed.

Just got to work, and came on to record today's weight (up another 2 lbs--sigh), and found all of your responses to yesterday's blog. I'm sitting here behind my desk, turned away from the entrance to my cubicle, because I have tears in my eyes.... Read more
Not doing too well.
Monday, June 25, 2012      7 comments

I've been in a blue funk for over a week, eating everything in sight and not exercising. At this point I have gained back 10 of the pounds I had lost, four of them in the last week. It is ridiculous, and all I am doing by eating myself into th... Read more
stuck again, but got it done.

Over on calories again today, but only by 200 this time, so I figure I'm gaining (or preferably losing) on it. AND I did 30 minutes on the treadmill and lots of ST at the gym, so that is good to go. I did take off from work about an hour... Read more
Day 4: not exactly a streak, but at least a good healthy stripe.
Thursday, June 07, 2012      4 comments

Started out the day well--good breakfast, good lunch, but by the time I got to lunch it was almost 2PM. I was in a nursing home this morning, and was trying to get my part of the work done so the doctor could do his. Also, I have to admit, it ... Read more
Streakin', day 3, and I figured out what the bad smell is.
Wednesday, June 06, 2012      2 comments

OK, day 3, and if I can avoid eating anything before I go to bed, I am still streakin' away. Ate too much for breakfast again (I need to stop eating in the cafeteria/cafe at work), but kept the calories under control otherwise. I thought a... Read more
My Two Day Streak
Tuesday, June 05, 2012      2 comments

OK, two days in a row I've kept it together, which is quite an accomplishment considering what I have been doing lately. Calories in a reasonable range. Got my exercise in. Ate my veggies. Haven't gotten to the de-cluttering part yet, but th... Read more
Ashamed of myself for being so lazy, but getting better--and 30 cents richer for it tonight.

OK, going to Iowa to help my Mom move, only to find out that she had no intention of actually moving last weekend, really took it out of me, but that is really no excuse for this last week. I drove five hours on Saturday, only to get ther... Read more
Time for bed, but haven't blogged for two weeks, and I'm gonna anyway.
Thursday, May 24, 2012      2 comments

These last couple of weeks have been just frantic. I need to be getting to bed now, but still have clothes in the dryer anyway, and thought I would put the time to good use. Tuesday, went to a Medicare "boot camp" (seems to be the in ca... Read more
Awesome Full Moon weekend.
Sunday, May 06, 2012      3 comments

Except for walking around in mis-matched shoes all day and not being able to sleep last night, this weekend has gone very smoothly for a Full Moon. Started out with my granddaughter on Friday night and well into Saturday. We didn't do mu... Read more
Making this do-able
Monday, April 30, 2012      2 comments

I realized today that this time is different. I've lost weight before, usually 20-30 pounds, but then have not only stopped losing weight, but have stopped trying to maintain where I am. This time is already different, because, although my wei... Read more
