Hello Spark friends

Tuesday, August 04, 2015      5 comments

I can't remember the last time I posted a blog. My life has taken many twists and turns, some good, some bad, some very bad. But I have fought through it all and have gotten back to the point where I realized my weight is one thing I do ha... Read more

Fighting my way back

Monday, May 26, 2014      2 comments

I have not written a blog in a very long time. Mostly out of embarrassment I guess. I worked so hard to get to my goal weight and get fit. I managed to accomplish both goals. But then things happened. I had issues at work. Because of the i... Read more

The next step in answering my questions, and hopefully feeling better, is a methacholine challenge test which I am having done on Wednesday. Have any of you ever had this test done before? I read online that it is very physically challenging. ... Read more

Still looking for answers

Here is an update from my last blog. Unfortunately, it is not good news. The results of my echocardiogram were negative, just as i suspected. This was followed by an actual visit to my Dr. instead of just a phone call. He informed me that we... Read more

I haven't written a blog for a very long time. The truth is, I haven't done anything I should for a very long time. I am way beyond frustrated and wish i had all the answers. But the truth is, I have none. Here is what has been going o... Read more

Doing well but a frustrating run

Monday, November 07, 2011      0 comments

I think I have finally gotten back on track. Sometimes I think something just has to click in my brain to get me to care and do the right thing again. I am feeling like that has happened. So, on that note, I have done really well with my eati... Read more

At a temporary standstill

Several years ago, while providing EMS at a snowmobile event, I had a sudden onset of difficulty breathing. It lasted for about two weeks. At that time, I had a chest x-ray, blood work and a spiral CT scan, all of which were negative. Althoug... Read more

I am pretty sure this is the hardest blog I will have written so far. But it is time to do it. It is time to be honest with all of you. The truth that I have been hiding is that shortly after I reached my goal, I started sliding back the othe... Read more

BAD weekend

Sunday, June 26, 2011      3 comments

I had all the good intentions in the world of doing better this weekend than I have been doing on weekends. But all those good intentions can't contend with sudden death. I had breakfast with my very best friend yesterday. Then we both had so... Read more

I need to blog more often

Tuesday, June 21, 2011      3 comments

It may seem like sometimes I drop off the face of earth. That really isn't true. Despite rarely writing blogs, I am on sparkpeople every single day. I unfortunately am not very consistent with my blogging however. I am going to try to change... Read more
