Effect of friends

Saturday, December 21, 2013      3 comments

Since I work so much I don't spend much time with friends. And since I am isolated I think I eat more. Food is rarely a social thing for me . It is more like something I want, but don't get at regular mealtimes (working through any breaks due to... Read more

Long time, no blog

In the past year, I have been through some pretty sad stuff. My mother was diagnosed with cancer in June of 2012, and in October 2012, she moved in with me. She went through chemo and radiation, but still died from her aggressive cancer about ... Read more

Scales. Errrrr....

A week ago last Friday, I woke up with such severe vertigo I couldn't walk. After I stabilized myself, I crept out the door and went to work for only 8 hours, then bit the bullet and went and paid cash for an office visit (this ended up leaving... Read more

I haven't been feeling well this week. I've still gotten about 14 miles of walking in, but that's about it. Strength training has been too much to ask for. Circumstances are serving to make me feel very depressed and sluggish. My moth... Read more

I guess I should look at my info more closely. I was off by a month. In 10 days it will be one year since I joined Sparkpeople - not next month! emoticonRead more

Next Month.... One year

Thursday, July 12, 2012      2 comments

Next month marks one year since I started with sparkpeople. It's been so long since I have lost even a pound (even gained 4 pounds over a weekend last month during my cycle), I have to keep looking at the bigger picture to stay focused. Whe... Read more

I had been in a funk for about 2 days, and am I finally feeling (emotionally) better today. It's the first day of that monthly cycle, so I am in a lot of pain. With the fibro has come increased gynecological pain and irritable bowel syndrome, ... Read more

Sunday night

Sunday, May 20, 2012      1 comments

Today I did great with my food choices, and not so great with my fitness. I only did about 20 minutes of activity. I am having alot of pain from yesterday's exertions, and my fibro is kicking in pretty good, making my back, shoulders, right... Read more

Saturday night... Sunday morning

Sunday, May 20, 2012      2 comments

Today my food was okay. I really needed to include more greens and veggies, but I stayed within my caloric limits and stayed active for most of the day. I also cleaned, walked, danced and worked out. So much that I made goal and then some.... Read more

Wednesday! Hump Day....

This has been a very long week already, and so I am SO glad that tomorrow is Thursday. I have a very long day scheduled - over 12 hours - and so I am looking even more forward to Friday. Today I really just dropped the ball on choosing a... Read more

I must say, this week at work has been nuts! Nothing momentous, but lots of stress. On a brighter note, I went to do a monthly visit and one of the staff who hasn't seen me in two months did not recognize me because she says (!) that I h... Read more

Monday night!

Monday, May 14, 2012      3 comments

Well, I made it through the workday, came home and walked to my Al-Anon meeting (about 1/4 mile away) and had a great meeting. Then I came home and walked another mile or so. Then I came back to the house and split a Skinny Cow ice cream sandw... Read more

Mother's Day fallout/Monday Monday

Monday, May 14, 2012      3 comments

Yesterday was Mother's Day and my husband decided he was going to cook our meals yesterday instead of me, to give me a break. He tries hard, but he is not a very healthy or versatile cook. As a result I felt kind of cruddy yesterday and am sic... Read more

Day Two: Fuelband

Friday, May 11, 2012      0 comments

Well, Day 2 is going well. I passed my 2000 goal in late afternoon (as opposed to about 2PM yesterday) because today was an office day and I wasn't training any new hires. I am still pretty enamored with the Fuelband overall. Yesterday I h... Read more

Trying out my new Fuelband

Thursday, May 10, 2012      3 comments

Today was the first full day I woke the fuelband. I got in the mail yesterday. I was surprised as I had set a goal of "2000" yet I exceeded it by hitting over 3100. It m... Read more
