I have been logging in fairly regularly but have been lurking in the background, not posting to teams, not even logging my food. BIG MISTAKE! Not only have I not lost any more weight, I've actually gained a bit back.
My diet doctor put me... Read more
I haven't written a blog for a loooong time and this one isn't going to be very long but I just read an interesting article online. You can read it at

I've been on SP for over 2 years and while I SAY I want to get fit and healthy (and lose weight in the process), I've done very little to make it happen. So far I've lost 30 pounds and most of that in the first few months.

I have been up and down the roller coaster lately - mostly down (the easy side, right?).
I finally went back to the gym, which is AMAZING. Anyone who knows me will agree with that statement. My son and I joined together and trust me, havi... Read more
I had a request to work three full days back-to-back a couple of weeks ago. Not a good idea yet. I was exhausted by the end of the second day. However, the timing was good since it was just before going back to my doctor for a reassessment of... Read more
It's been two weeks since I went back to work part time. I'm working afternoons only (from 1:00 to 4:30) and so far so good. My boss has been great and hasn't pushed me beyond my strength. He did ask me to work 3 full days at the end of the... Read more
I'm torn... I LOVE being off work and being able to do whatever I want. Believe me, I know just how lucky I am that, for the most part, I HAVE been able to do most things that I want to do. I recovered well from the mastectomy; I haven't been ... Read more
I had my last chemo treatment on Friday. I'm done! At the cancer treatment centre I go to they have a tradition...after you finish your last chemo treatment, you get to ring a ship's bell that's hung from the wall. It's the BEST feeling! OMG... Read more
"Easy", you're thinking? Really? Yeah, really. I had my third chemo treatment two weeks ago. I've been feeling so good, I kept waiting to blog until the side effects hit me and I could tell you all how I dealt with them. Well, friends, the ... Read more
Andy Rooney's death was announced last month. This little piece could well serve to honor one whose last few years evidenced great wisdom, though, at the same time he became something of an ornery old dude.
If you will take the time to re... Read more
People who have known me for years know that my hair changes often. I've had it straight (my natural style) and curly. I've been a blond, a redhead, a brunette. I've had it long, I've had it short. Today's blog is all about the journey to pr... Read more
I haven't blogged for a while because it was just more of the same - that is until the past few days. Then it got so busy, I wanted to wait until things settled down so that I could tell you everything.
I went to the surgeon last Thursday.... Read more
I has an interesting couple of days. I went to the surgeon's office to get the medical leave letter and a refill on my pain killers. I was not a happy camper when I left his office. You've heard the old "dragon at the gate" to describe the wom... Read more
