What is wrong with me???
I've skipped my last two TOPS meetings. I canceled my trainer yesterday. I ordered takeout (jalapeno poppers and calzone) instead of eating some of the wonderful fresh vegetables that are starting to pile up, uneaten, in my kitchen. I've only ga... Read more
TOPS tasks for the weekend were pretty easy.
Saturday: Take a walk - and if it is raining - you won't melt - so enjoy it.
Well, it wasn't raining, and the dogs need several walks a day, so that was no problem!
Sunday: It's Sunday bu... Read more
Tuesday's task was to concentrate on my food plan for the week - done.
Wednesday's task was not to go in the kitchen after 7 pm - done (I don't count fetching the dog poop bags).
Thursday's task was to support my local chapter by voting - on... Read more
Tasks from yesterday and today
OK, I forgot to look at yesterday's calendar entry yesterday, but I looked at it this morning and it says "Relax - another day will be here tomorrow". So I checked it off :-)
Today's entry says to watch some fireworks; I'll be staying home ... Read more
Today's TOPS task is to take a picture that I can put on my refrigerator, for comparison at the end of the year. So here it is. With bonus dogs :-)

More blogs! Now with TOPS!
I joined TOPS a few weeks ago - I figure I need all the help I can get. Our leader gives us weekly challenges as well as a monthly calendar with daily things to do.
So this week's challenges are - no candy (won't be hard for me, I'm not a c... Read more
Out of the hospital
Shortness of breath started getting worse again, so Monday I went to the ER (also had chest pain and, during exercise, dizziness - almost fainted). The good news: my arteries and lungs are fine. The not so good news: my heart is showing signs of... Read more
I haven't been here in quite a while, and things have happened.
My husband died on February 9; the third round of cancer was not a charm. Three types of chemo failed to halt its progress; he took a sharp downturn at the end of January and ... Read more
Here we go again, again?
So I have now gained back 35 of the 20 pounds I lost, and am heavier than I have ever been. Besides high blood pressure I now also have high cholesterol and sleep apnea. And my husband is getting sicker; his cancer is now back for the third time... Read more
Here we go again ...
So once again I am going to try to at least find the track that I want to be on (can't get back on track until I find it, you see). I quit recording my foods a while ago, and haven't been on SparkPeople at all for weeks; I still work out with my... Read more
Trying to come back
I was looking over my last blog entry, where I talked about how unfair it was that Frank has a hernia on top of everything else. Ha! Little did I know.
I've been struggling with staying on track anyway since Frank's cancer came back. Last T... Read more
Doing a little better
Well, I am doing a little better although not a lot. I am still eating too much, and didn't weigh in last Sunday, but I've been recording most of my foods, and walking a little faster - even almost jogging a bit - with the dogs. It's still a str... Read more
Having a terrible time
Well, for a while there I quit recording my foods, quit exercising except for walking the dogs (which I got my son to do a lot of), and quit weighing in. I finally did weigh on Sunday, and have put on 3 pounds in 3 weeks. Not horrible but not th... Read more
End of stress blogs - how did it go?
Well, I don't know that I can call these last 28 days an unqualified success. I have not really thrown myself into the stress management program as thoroughly as I had imagined myself doing when I started. However, I have learned some good techn... Read more
Stress blog day 23 - emotional eating
My husband and I met our minister for lunch on Thursday; I'd told her that he was having a really hard time dealing with the recurrence of his cancer, and she brought some materials that he may find helpful. One of the things she suggested was j... Read more
