Ready to Go!
Friday, April 15, 2016      1 comments

I'm mostly recovered from my sinus surgery and ready to go! I did a somewhat light workout on Tuesday, after 3 weeks of no workouts, and expected it to be hard, and then to be really sore the next day. But, it was easy peasy, and no soreness. ... Read more
I want my advil back!
Tuesday, March 22, 2016      1 comments

I'm just whining today. I made the decision to get surgery on my sinuses - fix a deviated septum and flush out everything. I really can't wait for it to be done for so many reasons, but there are some short term drawbacks too. I've been worki... Read more
What are my trade offs?
Friday, February 05, 2016      2 comments

For every action I take that is either unhealthy, or just not the best choice to improve my health and well being, there is a trade off. There is something I want more 'at that moment' that is keeping me from making the best choice. So I guess... Read more
Chia Seeds
Thursday, February 04, 2016      3 comments

I actually find this hard to believe, but it's true. I've discovered that adding a little bit of chia seeds to my breakfast completely stops the cravings I would get before my next meal. I eat my breakfast and lunch at work and I've been wanti... Read more

Back again, with new energy
Tuesday, February 02, 2016      1 comments

How many blogs start with that title - Back again? I hate to be another one, but here I am. I've been peeking in now and then and even tracked my food a little bit here and there, but I haven't been able to stay with it. The last 15 months o... Read more
Feeling great!
Thursday, March 07, 2013      2 comments

I wish I could figure out what makes me feel so great one day, and so awful another day. I'd bottle it and take it every day. Of course I'm happy because the sun is shining outside my window at work, I'm taking a day off to make this a 3 day w... Read more
I need daylight savings time and sunshine.
Wednesday, February 27, 2013      2 comments

I spin the wheel every day, and log my breakfast, and usually my lunch, and then I get stuck. My eating plan falls apart and I don't even bother to track it. I've been reading articles and blogs and enjoying being part of Sparkpeople, so the p... Read more
A Laugh on the Way to Work
Wednesday, January 16, 2013      5 comments

I work in downtown Portland, which can be a very interesting place in a good and bad way. This morning I was a couple blocks from my office when I saw a fire truck stopped in the street with lights flashing. Not an unusual sight in this part o... Read more
Off to a good start!
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      3 comments

When I "fall off the wagon", the hardest part of getting back on is just starting. It's more mental than physical - but I certainly pay for it physically with stiffness and sore muscles. December was a really hard month, just killer at w... Read more
Baby Steps
Friday, January 11, 2013      0 comments

I hate to say this, but I'm starting the new year heavier than I've been in 3 years. I feel like I should feel depressed or sad about it, but I don't. I haven't gained a lot of weight, but it's a lot for me. I've also let my fitness level sli... Read more
Lesson learned the hard way.
Thursday, April 26, 2012      5 comments

I think I've finally learned my lesson and I'm going to listen to my body from now on. Recently I hurt my back, which sidelined my fitness for a while. Then I picked it back up going full steam ahead and pulled a muscle in my left calf and had ... Read more
Started out weak - ended Strong!
Tuesday, April 03, 2012      4 comments

Strange day yesterday. I was tired and had a slight headache all day. There is a scale in the restroom at work and I can't resist getting on it every time I go in there. This has actually helped me understand how much my weight can fluctuate d... Read more
Only Monday - Already Way Too Tired
Monday, April 02, 2012      0 comments

I need to stop "trying" to get to bed by 11:00 each night and just do it! I really NEED to make this my priority over everything else. The funny thing is that if I wasn't tired all the time, I'm sure everything else would fall into place and b... Read more
Vacation and stubbornness are big incentives
Wednesday, March 28, 2012      0 comments

I'm resisting the VooDoo Donuts sitting on the counter in our back room at work. We have a new complex manager and when he visited this morning he brought some donuts - from locally famous VooDoo Donuts. They have a location only a couple of bl... Read more
