My son curled up in my lap yesterday for some cuddle time. He is almost 8, so he doesn't cuddle with me as much anymore.
I lost my mom when I was 20. I know people who lost their parents at earlier ages.
I want to be around as long... Read more
Here we go again
I start, I have some progress, I back slide and I stop, and then I start again.
However, it took me a long time to quit smoking, so I know I just need to keep working at it.

knocked down again by pain
Tired of living with pain. I blogged about barriers before, but this is my biggest one. I don't want to move when I hurt. I don't care what I eat when I hurt. My depression is deep when I hurt.

I had off from work yesterday, so was working on decluttering in the kitchen. I had previo... Read more
Feeling a little better
I'm starting to feel better, still sleeping too much though. I did a cardio video yesterday, and it felt good. I'm feeling a little sore in my hips, so plan on keeping things low key today. Some strength training and a yoga video.

Been depressed these last few days. I have cyclic depression, so I go through cycles. Affects my activity level, and my nutrition, especially cheese. I love cheese anyway, but when I'm depressed, I swear it is all I want to eat. So yesterday... Read more

I admit, I was a little disappointed when I weighed myself this week and the scale only went down 0.2 lbs. I felt I did really well keeping on track nutritionally and physically. But, I'm balancing that disappointment with happiness at my non-... Read more
I'm feeling good about the changes I am making. For the last two days, I got in over 10,000 steps. My goal is to go for a walk on lunch every day for at least 30 minutes. I also want to either walk or bike ride when I get home. This week has ... Read more
Need to work on recovery more
Once every few months, my friend and I have lunch at an amazing pizza place, and we have calzones. Even cut in half, they are very high calorie and fat. I know I'll be over on those days.
Last night I planned on going home and cooking fis... Read more
I got my results from my sleep study and I have mild obstructive sleep apnea. I was really hoping I wouldn't need CPAP, but I do :(
Positive side is that since it will help me sleep, I will have more energy. I'm hoping once I'm in health... Read more

My blood pressure was normal when I went in for my check today. I'm not sure I 100% trust it since its be running high, but I'll be happy just the same. I know its trends that my doctor is looking for, not just one measurement.
But it was... Read more
My weight and pant sizes
I have three sizes of pants: 12, 14 and 16. These show the range of sizes that I have worn over the past 4 years. Which I wear have become a way to track not just my weight loss but how I feel about it.
When I am wearing my 16s, that is w... Read more
This is harder than before
Last time I was here, I followed the Sparkpeople recommendations . . . in general. I wasn't very strict about the grams of fat, protein and carbs and if I was under or over a little on calories, I figured it would even out in the end.
