Salt... The not so good seasoning.
Within the last 2 days, I ate so much salty food my hands & legs swelled up... Definitely not good. Remembering what my doctor told me, I increased my water intake & wore my compression socks & glove (for right hand) all day.
Still a littl... Read more

Ok... I'll admit it. I splurged last night at the arena when I went to the hockey game. I had macaroni & cheese, (medium) fries, a Pepsi, & waffle cone / twist ice cream.
At the time, I thought nothing of it. But today the guilt has set in.... Read more
Went to see my plastic surgeon for a follow-up appointment today. As always, I was told everything was healing nicely. What I didn't expect was to be told that I only have about 2 more months to go before I can have the final 'step' to my recons... Read more

Short Term Goal... Day 1
Worked 4th shift today (12 - 8 pm)... With 2 breaks during my shift, I did pretty well. By the time my 1st break rolled around, I wasn't in the mood for lunch so I opted for a cinnamon raisin bagel w/ cream cheese & a banana that I brought from ... Read more
Doing good... But, could do better.
For those that do not know, I work in the bakery department at a large, family owned grocery store. I bring a relatively healthy lunch from home every day (always have).
Yet, being around pastries, buns / bread, etc. can be deadly (I learne... Read more
I survived my first day working a shift w/o supervision from a trainer...
Today was my first night closing @ the store by myself... Despite the large volume of customers, I think I did ok. As I was told by a co-worker earlier in the day, the manager is bound to find something 'not right' and say something. I was told ... Read more
