Friday, August 13, 2010      23 comments

Saturday morning I woke up and grabbed something to wear out of my closet, not thinking. I could hardly button it and it didn't feel comfortable at all. Old familiar feelings came rushing back to me, as I took it off and looked for something a l... Read more

Getting It Back After Minor Bump in the Road

Monday, August 09, 2010      15 comments

I've been very concerned that going back to work 2 full days a week might trigger eating. I started back on payroll on August 2, 2010. (Before that I was just working one day a week as a consultant plus some grant writing at home.) My first week... Read more

Really enjoyed the Polk County SparkTeam pot luck dinner last evening. It was wonderful to meet AMANDJCD and get to see FLUTTERBUGCE, EILEENV3, and ASMITH (hope I have that screen name right) again. TBRANCH has such a lovely home. She and her hu... Read more

Now I Can Look the Part

Thursday, August 05, 2010      19 comments

Today it came! The FedEx man left me a little white package. Natalie was here and we opened it together. I now have a bright red (size small) SparkPeople shirt. Natalie was very impressed. You may remember I won $10 credit on the wheel the ... Read more

I just finished all the laundry, getting every single piece -- even the ironing and hand washing -- finished and put away. As I was reorganizing my closet and throwing out my last clothes that are too big, I realized something: I have enough clo... Read more

My Kind of Triathlon

Saturday, July 31, 2010      9 comments

The SparkPeople-inspired lifestyle pays off again! Good annual check up today. Blood pressure: 112/70. The nurse said that I must have very good genes. But I don't think that's it. My mom and sister are both on meds for high blood pressure and m... Read more

Friday, July 23, 2010      13 comments

I doubt you can tell, but there is something different about this blog than any other I've ever written. I am putting into practice something I've read about and makes sense to me. Perhaps you have been reading, too, about desks now available th... Read more
