Trying to take care of me this month. Sounds selfish, but I don't want to die prematurely and have the tombstone read, "She took care of everyone but herself". Have been somewhat successful in getting the doctor visits in, mammogram, etc... Read more

Pretty sure I have used this title before. Didn't sleep with my CPAP last night and am feeling so tired and lethargic. Misplaced my Driver's License so I don't really want to leave home without it! Doing some laundry and cleaning,... Read more

Good thing I went to the pool, when I came back my street was impassable and my drive way blocked! I got to the pool at 6:45 AM and took my time there. Swam one mile of crawl and breast stroke using only my arms, my knees and legs still hurt a... Read more

Got inspired by the first blog that I read...went and worked out, swam 24 lengths using my arms, and sat in the whirlpool. I feel like I am back at the point where I am so overweight that people just don't see you. Seriously, this guy was tota... Read more

Well, I got a rejection e-mail for the job which was kind of a bummer, followed immediately by a gushing e-mail about my last clown performance from the client. Was nice to get the positive after the negative. I think I need to change my resum... Read more

Swam last night with my hubby, one half mile. It felt great. Had a suit on that fit and allowed me to really swim hard. Then the it at night. Felt really good, so I hit the pool again this morning. Incentives don't usua... Read more

Thursday, September 01, 2011      4 comments

Today I went to the doctor for a sinus infection. The nurse asked if I wanted to skip the scale. I haven't been to the doctor in months, lack of health insurance will do that to you, but seriously, what kind of a dumb question is that? I ... Read more
