I was so proud of myself last year when I hit my goal weight. I am so disgusted with myself that I have slid so far off track this year. I am starting this program over again... starting today. SparkPeople is now my home page. I have cha... Read more

Ok, I'm starting this weigh-loss thing all over again. I want to lose the 10-15 pounds I gained since hitting my goal last year. I'm still in quite a bit of pain due to shoulder trouble, but I'm going to track my food and walk, walk, walk. ... Read more

I have been diagnosed with arthritis of the shoulder? I didn't even know that was possible. Right now I'm in quite a bit of pain and moving is difficult. Exercise is proving to be quite a challenge. The meds I'm on for the next 30 days h... Read more

Lose weight; gain weight. Get inspired; end up lazy. Feel welcome; left alone. Doing well; then fail. All this back and forth stuff is tiring... ... Read more

I was just diagnosed with this. I'm on a liquid diet for the next 5 days and I'm taking 2 antibiotics. I suspect I will lose weight, but this is doing it the hard way. ... Read more

It snowed last night and for the first time this winter there is snow on the ground. I can't shovel it because I have a sore shoulder. Last year I shoveled record amounts of snow and burned a lot of calories doing it. I guess I'll just stay in... Read more

I have walked 1314 miles with the Hobbits since July 2010. It's been fun. I have walked to Rivendell and I just reached Parth Galen where the Fellowship broke up. I'm walking with Sam and Frodo to Mount Doom, now. In reality, I'm taki... Read more

Ok. Time to get serious again. Again. I've managed to slide backwards and I find myself (weight-wise) where I was 10 months ago. I need to start thinking of myself again and I need to start taking care of myself again. Somewhere over the... Read more

Calories in Meds
Monday, September 26, 2011      1 comments

I drink about a half a cup of black cherry juice every night before bed to help relieve some of the pain of Restless Leg Syndrome. That's 100 calories! Every night! I was thinking of the juice as medicine and I wasn't tracking the calories... Read more

I realized I needed a new walking routine. Since the Walk To Rivendell plan did so well for me, I decided to walk somewhere real this time. (I will still record my Rivendell walk, however, because the group here is awesome!) I joined a virtu... Read more
Kitten Saga
Wednesday, August 10, 2011      3 comments

For three days a kitten has been crying somewhere behind the high fence in my backyard. No neighbor is missing a cat. For three days I tried calling it, searching for it and setting out food. No luck until the family behind me set out a humane t... Read more
