Today is supposed to be 20 degrees ABOVE zero. It is a strange world indeed where that is something to be excited about. I have some stuff that needs to get done in the garage, so this afternoon when we are closer to that promised temp, I will t... Read more
The Diet Decision
I have been contemplating this for months now. I am thinking about returning to the no-starch diet. It is hard to stay with, and even harder if you take fruit off the menu. I have been trying to resolve the reflux issue first, so that I could ea... Read more
This is the big reset day, one that most people observe as a day to start over and create new habits.
I printed the vision statement that I wrote in October and am committed to following the plan at least half of the time Read more
Two steps forward, one step backward
So after having my light bulb moment a couple of days ago, I totally blew it off yesterday. Not that I didn't get things done, but I worked on something at the bottom of my priority list. I guess a day like that now and then isn't so bad, but I ... Read more
Light bulb moment
Obviously, I have never been very successful at weight loss or getting healthy. I suppose somewhere along the way I accepted it as just how I am. And yet I keep trying. Something wrong with that thought process.
Since I wrote my vision stat... Read more
I feel numb. I cannot comprehend that the test results were negative. The information that was sent home with us somehow never made it here. I called this morning and they are going to send me another copy. Maybe there is something in there to g... Read more
Finally! I had my tests yesterday. The prep was horrible. I became very sick. I was so glad to get past that. Unfortunately, the doctor said that he found nothing wrong in either test. There is no evidence that I even have reflux let alone an un... Read more
I decided I would try the recipe calculator today on a recipe that I have been eating often lately. At one point, not too long ago, I thought I would never make this recipe again. Chicken and rice hotdish is really not a healthy meal. It has bee... Read more
Lost a day!
Good days do not come in pairs! The stomach issues were bad yesterday, with a fever too. I slept most of the day. When I checked my lists, I did get more done than I thought I did, but overall it felt like a wasted day.
I have stopped think... Read more
Getting things done!
I really don't like the fact that I have to live my life from lists, but I am getting the hang of it. I have been getting so much done. Even yesterday with a blinding headache and taking it easy, I got more done than I used to without a list.

I went to church yesterday, but I think it was the last time. It was just too horrible with all the sounds and lights, people, etc. Too much visual and auditory input. My head is about to split open even now. It makes me very sad to come to the ... Read more
Things fell apart in the last week and a half. Somehow managed to do what I had to do, but didn't do very well at doing what I should have done.
My husband's surgery went well, and our daughter was here to drive me around. It was good that ... Read more
Another long weekend coming
I haven't recovered from the last long weekend, and here we are about to start with another long weekend of activities. So last night I made the decision to cancel Thanksgiving. My husband not only agreed, but pointed out that with him being off... Read more
Even though I am feeling better, I am so tired I can barely get through the day. I just can't seem to pull out of it. I really like Thanksgiving, but I am giving serious consideration to cancelling this year.
I am getting more done everyday... Read more
We went out of town for a long weekend. It is always nice to see our daughter's family, but I don't travel well. It was all I could do to get through it. I was so fatigued that I never thought about checking my blood sugar, taking insulin, or ev... Read more
