Chapter 16 -Day 64

Friday, December 12, 2014      5 comments

Yesterday was a super good workout with shoveling 10" of heavy snow. I topped that with 1.5 hours of sledding with granddaughter; I did a lot of pulling her up the hill on the sled. I took her to the same spot I used to take my boys to when th... Read more

Type 2 Diabetes lesson...maybe not too late for another

Friday, December 12, 2014      0 comments

Doctors are treating BILs other leg right now, trying to clear it of more infection so that they can amputate below the knee instead of above. This is likely to be a 2 week process. Doctor is requiring that once BIL is able to start rebuil... Read more

In my busy streak for my business, closing company books for year. I know I am not too busy, though, to fit in at least 10 minues of exercise daily, so that is my Commitment to Self today, and everyday now until the end of January. Course, mor... Read more

Chapter 16, Day 58 ... family sorrows from diabetes

Saturday, December 06, 2014      10 comments

I didn't want to get up this morning and rise again to deal with BIL's sad fate: the first of two amputations was done last night; the second will be done next week. We are all so sad for him. He's a type 2 diabetic. A snitcher of swee... Read more

Chapter 16, Day 52

Saturday, November 29, 2014      4 comments

Ever since getting home from the hospital from BILs surgery, I am trying to shake off the cloak of despair that covers me. The doctors post surgery discussion deflated our earlier optimism for BIL to keep his legs, and saving just one will be a... Read more

Thanksgiving was wonderful, while the food and family gathering was beautiful, we got the best news: My husband's BIL's doctors came by for a consult & tomorrow BIL goes into surgery again, this time to try and save his legs. The surgeons are ... Read more

Enjoying my coffee and some spark time, before the busy day begins. I made the applesauce and candied sweet potatoes last night. Today I will make the stuffing and Extreme Chocolate Cake....the latter will be able to duke it out with Uncle Jos... Read more

Chapter 16, Day 48

Tuesday, November 25, 2014      4 comments

Yesterday was super windy, and mild in temperature.....a great day for the walk I did not take. From lack of initiative, I guess it was a "rest day" and the only one I will take this week (self: promise!) On a positive, I stuck to my Food Plan... Read more

Rainy with mild temperatures in the 50s today. Our 18" of snow is melted. DAY'S POSITIVES I am encouraged by a 1# weight loss Focused on health and fitness again Worked in some bonus fitness minutes while waiting for the microwave ... Read more

Chapter 16, Day 45 ... how will you get through Thanksgiving week without gaining weight?

Saturday, November 22, 2014      5 comments

The message ringing in my head is very clear: dump the refined carbs pronto, if you want to lose weight. Simple, but yet so hard. I've done it before, I can do it again. Well, except for Thanksgiving Day. Everyone will be bringing th... Read more

Chapter 16, Day 42

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      4 comments

Lots of snow everywhere. How we escaped the first round of 6 feet of snow with just a dusting is unimaginable, when just 2 miles up the road, the highway is closed to traffic. The Thruway is closed to the state line of PA, and also as far eas... Read more

Chapter 16, Day 38.....oh,no....the mirror!

Saturday, November 15, 2014      5 comments

Mirror reflections: that would be a big ole ouch! Was that me, really? Where did that middle "pot" come from? In my mind, it was still gone from my work over the Summer Challenge. Clearly, my sloppiness in health and fitness over the Fa... Read more

Chapter 16, Day 29

Friday, November 07, 2014      5 comments

A busy day ahead of me. I'm ready for it. The focus is on me first. Though I wasn't planning to, I slept in and got more rest (my plan was to rise early and start in on client work). I'll get out and walk in a few minutes, and then hit the cl... Read more

Chapter 16, Day 28

Thursday, November 06, 2014      3 comments

Yesterday was a busy day of client work....chained to my desk, my doing. I found it challenging to get just 10 fitness minutes in, and that's a poor showing of making my health and fitness a priority. I could have done better with my food choi... Read more
