And here we go again....

Saturday, August 22, 2015      1 comments

At least I'm consistent in my inconsistency and my returns. I had shoulder surgery for cartilage damage back on June 4th. I've been battling pitting edema in my lower legs for a year or more now, and it had spread to my ankles and even the... Read more

The job hunt isn't going well. I've had two interviews, one for a permanent job, and one for a long term temping position, but didn't get either. I suppose I should be happy that I at least, finally, made it up into the interview rank. An... Read more

Persistence. Sort of.

Wednesday, April 03, 2013      4 comments

It's been over a year since my last blog entry. Wow. And I put back all the weight I had lost and a bit more. I'd like to say it isn't totally my fault, and I think that is at least partially true. I got sick around the end of last summe... Read more

January 15th - primalish and water

Sunday, January 15, 2012      2 comments

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I had cooked a relatively primal/paleo dinner for the family. The husband seemed pretty happy with it, not being massively enthusiastic over the sweet potato hash, but happy enough to eat it. I'll play arou... Read more

January 14th - children. Sigh...

Saturday, January 14, 2012      1 comments

The girls spent most of the afternoon yelling at each other, enough that I ended up sending them both to their rooms *without* their computers. While they were up there I put the laptops away where they wouldn't find them, and they didn't get t... Read more

January 12th - disappointed 8(

Thursday, January 12, 2012      1 comments

My Tai Chi class has been cancelled. The local parks and rec offers it regularly, but always during the day while I'm at work. Finally they had the beginners class in the evening, so of course I was the only one who signed up for it. Th... Read more

Wednesday, Jan 11th - plans

Wednesday, January 11, 2012      1 comments

I think I have the husband on board with this primal/paleo thing. Elder daughter isn't squawking much, and younger will just have to deal with it. I suggested to husband last night that this weekend we should go through the pantry and fi... Read more

Jan 9th - back (barely) below 178!

Monday, January 09, 2012      2 comments

OK, I've been trying to up my fat and protein, and seriously curb the carbs. I started halfway through Friday. And I've lost nearly 3 pounds since then. I've been eating less I think, but not much, calories are still well over 1500 every day,... Read more

January 6th - hungry AND frustrated with this plateau!~

Friday, January 06, 2012      5 comments

I'm starving today. I've been at a plateau for months now, bouncing around the same five pounds, and it's getting old! I've just been reading the stuff about and by Gary Taubes, which makes a lot of sense, especially when I compare it ... Read more

January 1st - a new year - new beginnings?

Sunday, January 01, 2012      1 comments

It's a new year, and I'm not making any new resolutions. But I am determined to continue working on losing this weight. Having people notice is nice, but sometimes it is actually a hindrance, because with everyone telling you how great you loo... Read more

October 18th - Found

Tuesday, October 18, 2011      0 comments

Last night the husband found the registration slip we needed to send to the DMV with it's envelope. Right next to the computer where a) only he would have put it, because I almost never get to use the desktop at home, and b) where he has been s... Read more

October 17th - Back on track. Maybe

Monday, October 17, 2011      0 comments

It looks like I may be getting back on track with exercise and food. I'm going to blame the colonoscopy last week, what with only clear liquids for over 24 hours and propofol. When you've cleared your gut that thoroughly it can take a bit for ... Read more

October 14th - frustration

Friday, October 14, 2011      6 comments

The husband called my at the office today at about 3:35. To ask which of the girls had the doctor's appointment today, where it was, and when. It was at 3:00. It was on the calendar. So now elder child's eye appointment is resc... Read more

October 9th - sad

Sunday, October 09, 2011      1 comments

Just a quick note today. I didn't get much done today although I had had plans to do either yard work or some campaign door-to-door. The latter involved not getting a call from the fellow candidate I was going to go with, and about the time I ... Read more

October 6th - TV and baking

Thursday, October 06, 2011      2 comments

This is short since it's late, and I want to get to bed soon. I got elder child to her appointment and we've got a lab slip to test for Epstein-Barre, since after two weeks, she still has significantly swollen salivary glands, it still hurt... Read more
