better night last night
I slept better last night. In addition to the possible sleep apnea, I also have a horrific cold and my nose is all stuffed up. So I made sure I was properly medicated for bed. I also told my husband that if I woke him up, to tell me to get up... Read more
I'm angry at myself
Been gone for just short of a year. Got tired of trying to track and not succeeding, trying to make changes and not succeeding. Kept being frustrated because when I first joined spark I lost 20 lbs, gained it back and couldn't lose it again.

These are the plants I am starting to harden off, hoping I can get them planted outside this weekend.
I have 4 basil plants, a cherry tomato and another tomato that I don't quite remember what type it is. I think it is one of my red variet... Read more
Had a great day today
Got caught up on a ton of laundry. Still need to sort socks, but the huge pile is daunting.
But the best thing is that I got my bike, finally! I've had my eye on this bike forever and one thing or another kept coming up and I couldn't get... Read more
Coming back up
I slipped into a depression this week, not a deep one but enough to affect my diet, exercise and relationships with people. I have cyclic depression, so this is normal for me, and I'm grateful it wasn't deeper. Years ago when I was single, it ... Read more

The good news is that my rheumatoid arthritis test came back negative. My doc and I had it done just to rule it out, but I was a little worried. There are auto-immune disorders in my family history.

Non Scale Victories
So my weight is up. I'm disappointed but not really surprised. I've had a lot going on lately, but I've also figured some things out.

Great MD appointment today
I was worried, my doctor doesn't always listen as well as I would like her to. I've considered looking for another doctor but decided that maybe I could improve my communication too.
Well, today went really well. She listened to what I wa... Read more
I've been here before. But one of the motivational items I received from another Spark member a while ago has a line on it "you are human, you will fail sometimes. Nothing worth achieving is ever going to be easy or happen straight away. JUST... Read more
