8/25/2015 Last week's review

Tuesday, August 25, 2015      5 comments

Disappointed in myself is all I can say. It was a different sort of week. Helena's schedule seems to be changing almost as much as her mouth is right now. She's getting so many teeth that we don't know if she's coming or going. Her sleep pat... Read more

Tuesday, August 11, 2015      5 comments

I felt that I did better last week. I went to the doctor 3 weeks ago and again last week: 4 pounds down. When a person is only 5' 1/2", 4 pounds make a huge difference. I can tell it in my clothes. I got my physical last week and pap s... Read more

Trying to Stay Positive

Thursday, August 06, 2015      7 comments

It's been hard for me to stay positive. I find myself taking things too personally. I know it's because I am short on "me" time and down time. I have to put my foot down and do for me I have to get thicker skin. Enjoy one moment at a ti... Read more

8/5/2015: Week in Review

Wednesday, August 05, 2015      3 comments

It was a strange report. I got lots of steps in, etc., but it said my calories total was lower. I am not sure what I did. Helena's getting her 1-year molars in and she's not been quite herself. But that still doesn't explain my totals. I wi... Read more

Monday, July 27, 2015      6 comments

Friday, July 24, 2015      5 comments

I've been taking some challenges over just for a refresher. They got me thinking and I even have been journaling on them. This really seems to help the messages sink in. So...this time around I am slowly making small positive changes in my li... Read more

Confucius Got Me Thinking

Friday, July 17, 2015      9 comments

It's faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes a life worth living. I came across this quote first thing in the morning. I must have slept well because it caught my attention and got me thinking. I've been mumbling (it se... Read more

7/13/2015 The Long Week in Review

Monday, July 13, 2015      3 comments

It was a long week being either in doctor's offices or a hospital all week. It took a toll on me mentally and physically. I have yet to rebound but know I have to work on it. I knew my count would be down; I was surprised at how much down... Read more

Spinning Wheels

Saturday, July 11, 2015      8 comments

I am where I want to be; I have those around me that I want around me; I'm still not really doing everything I want to do and my schedule is still not really a schedule. I made up my mind a while ago to get organized and to start enjoying... Read more
