Thoughts on gym class

Friday, March 13, 2015      1 comments

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

Monday, March 09, 2015      5 comments

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

Saturday, June 28, 2014      1 comments

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

Tuesday, June 24, 2014      1 comments

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

Tiring night

Friday, June 20, 2014      2 comments

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

Shopping trip

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

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

New gym!

Thursday, November 07, 2013      1 comments

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

Tuesday, November 05, 2013      4 comments

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

Wednesday, August 21, 2013      7 comments

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

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 . . . . ... Read more

Time for a job change?

Sunday, March 21, 2010      2 comments

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

Saturday, March 13, 2010      4 comments

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
