Thoughts on gym class
I hated gym class.
It always started at a level far beyond me, and I never felt like I could catch up. So I cut corners wherever I could, and didn't put in the effort I should. Add to this a system that favored the athletic kids in sports... Read more
Work in Progress
Overall, things have been going okay. I pulled something in my back last week, and I was forced to back off of my exercising for a while, but I kept tracking my food intake. I have had a few days lately that I feel I took in too many calories ... Read more
A Good Day
I started the day with oatmeal. I think I have finally gotten out of my ramen for breakfast habit, at least sort of. At least on work mornings, I've been pretty good about eating healthy cereal and maybe some fruit.
Resisted the frozen ... Read more

Trigger foods and mindless eating
I've been thinking lately about foods I have to be careful with. I'd love to be able to relax with food, but after over 30 years in this body, I know that's just not for me.
For example, I can't just get a pint of good ice cream and enjoy ... Read more
Came home from work tonight to find husband preparing to take his mother to the hospital. She fell and bumped her head. Several hours later, they released her, diagnosing a bruise. But you can't be too careful. She's almost 80; a fall could ... Read more
Tonight, we we grocery shopping. Didn't make it a complete trip, as it was late and we were tired, but made a point of starting in the produce section and buying lots of veggies and fruit. I haven't been doing great lately at my fruit and vege... Read more
Just some random stuff
Recent doctor's appointment showed everything in normal limits. A1C, normal. All cholesterol, normal. Platelets, normal. Thyroid, normal. BP, normal.
All good news!
I have started taking the brand name of my thyroid medicine. It'... Read more
I'm back at a gym, after a long time away. I put in about an hour overall, and got in some good cardio and strength training. It has a sauna, which I love to use after a workout. It gives me some time to relax and listen to some slower music.... Read more
Doctor's appointment, with mixed results
Overall, it went well.
My A1C is still in check, which is a relief. I haven't been watching my sugar and carb intake like I should, so I was expecting to see that number higher. It's good that it was within limits!
My thyroid levels ... Read more
Trying to Start Again
It's been a long time since I was here. I fell off the Spark wagon while dealing with the fallout of abnormal paps. The changes in my diet seemed to make me spot, which skyrocketed my anxiety levels, so I stepped away for a while.
After ... Read more
I HATE ASCUS!
Back in February, the same time I started on here, I had an abnormal Pap smear. I also started spotting before my period at the same time, which really, really freaked me out because it was not usual for me, and with the abnormal Pap . . . .

Time for a job change?
Maybe I just have expectations that are just too high? I don't know.
Lately, I've been scheduled to work closing shifts followed by opening shifts like it's nothing. Last week, I had two of them, and that's one reason I have been so quiet... Read more
Making Smart Choices
I almost titled this blog "Being Good", but something that I need to do is stop thinking of eating healthy things as "good" and unhealthy things as "bad". Food is not good or bad. And I am not bad if I make an unhealthy choice.
Hubby and ... Read more
