    Wong Chow calls into work and says" I can't come in, sick, got headache,stomach ache, legs hurt, I no work." The boss says," You know Wong, I really need you today. When I feel sick like you do, I go to my wife and tell her to give me sex. That makes everything better and I go to work. You try ... Read more

  • The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

    11/24/2014 9:30:38 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    Today was one of the worst days I've ever had. It was absolutely dreadful. I don't even want to rehash it all, but let's just say it included an accusation from a student's grandparent on my bus route that I tried to run them over with the bus the last time I drove it (Wednesday). She was SO ugly to... Read more

  • Change: It's Not as Bad as I Thought.

    11/23/2014 8:08:24 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    Kept Daughter home from school on Thursday because she was sick. When I woke up on Friday morning, I felt like absolute garbage, so we both stayed home again. I felt really bad yesterday, too. Yesterday evening, I was feeling a bit better but I was incredibly weak. Today I feel much better though. I... Read more

    11/21/2014 2:02:26 PM, by TUBLADY

    A guy is driving around the back woods of Virginia and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty style house:"Talking Dog For Sale." He knocks on the door and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retri... Read more

  • Update - possible new allergies developing and severe pain

    11/21/2014 8:28:13 AM, by BLUEROSE73

    Thank you for everyone who is following my blogs. Last Monday at 4pm - after I finished my fitness for the day and everything was on track for a successful day, I started having abdominal pains. These were different. They are not from y celiac. I figured it would pass. I was wrong. ... Read more

  • My fifth session.

    11/18/2014 10:25:12 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    It's been a long day and I'm incredibly tired, so this will be short and surely somewhat vague. I will devote more time to this when I can. I had my fifth therapy session today. We began by reviewing what we talked about last time, and went over my homework from last week -- which was to crea... Read more

  • Today's Kick in the Butt

    11/17/2014 9:46:18 AM, by BLUEROSE73

    I'm sitting here. Shivering. 2lbs heavier than I was last time I blogged. Yes, life got in my way. I had a deadline, and a lot of baking to do for it. For the most part, I didn't do too badly during that week. I was so busy baking I didn't have time to get into trouble, or eat any crap. ... Read more

  • Weird Weekend.

    11/16/2014 9:28:03 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    It's been a strange weekend. Husband worked for half the day on Saturday. I spent the entire weekend going through my attic. I basically took everything out, went through everything, sorted it all, organized it, and put it back. I have some things in heavy duty storage containers, but most ever... Read more

  • Same struggle, different decade.

    11/15/2014 9:31:35 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    So a few weeks ago, I decided to begin cleaning out my house (and life) of excess. I've slowly been going through various rooms in my house, and today I started cleaning out my attic. Long story short, I stumbled upon some of my old journals -- one of which was from 2004. This was an old Livejournal... Read more

  • It's Never Too Late.

    11/14/2014 3:03:45 PM, by TUBLADY

    Here I am at 68, 335 lbs, . 235 lbs, after 100 lbs loss. Then goal 135 lbs. When I embarked on this weight loss, some women I knew thought I was wasting my time. I should lose a little, but don't try to go back to who I was befor... Read more

  • Life "Sucks", and then you "Live"

    11/12/2014 9:15:30 PM, by FATROCKSTAR

    Some days are very "low" on my "awesome" scale! If I am out of bed for about 10 minutes and have already dropped my cup of coffee into the kitty litter that I was about to change, I know that it will be a less than perfect day! Some days are actually diamonds, and some days aree the furthest th... Read more

  • My fourth session.

    11/12/2014 8:05:39 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I had my fourth session today after work. I can't believe I've been going to therapy for four weeks now! I also can't believe how it's helping me. Last week, we talked about guilt -- more specifically, how doing things for myself makes me feel guilty. She also started some identity-building ac... Read more

  • Learning to put myself first a little more.

    11/10/2014 11:07:37 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    Friday I was feeling very stressed from the whole situation with Husband, but I did everything I could to just let it go and accept it. I went shopping and bought myself two new pairs of shoes, a new pair of jeans, and some new art supplies. I came home and had a good, hard cry. I took a long, hot s... Read more

  • The "gift", and the "price"

    11/10/2014 8:47:12 PM, by FATROCKSTAR

    This last year I am sure that many of you thought I was abducted by aliens, or dropped off the planet, but this fatrockstar is still very much alive, and after about a year, finally "well." I was the "victim " of a cruel twist of fate, which means that I had 3 cancer surgeries within 6 weeks. L... Read more

  • Discouraged and hurt. Again.

    11/7/2014 10:25:04 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but Husband has this incredibly annoying and hurtful habit of, oh...never doing what he says he's going to do. He'll tell me he will take the trash on Wednesday, and it won't happen. I'll ask him to go by somewhere and pick up something on Thursday after work, and ... Read more

  • Friday, Nov 7

    11/7/2014 1:18:23 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    It takes a lot of energy to want to exercise, to want to eat healthy. It takes a lot of planning. If you don't take the time and energy to plan then you will miserably fail. The pumpkin bread in the break room will be your breakfast and the turkey bacon ranch sandwich at the local bakery will be ... Read more

  • Third session.

    11/6/2014 10:38:05 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I had my third session yesterday. We went over the things I'd written down; activities I'd like to either reincorporate into my life, or the ones I'd like to begin/learn more about eventually. We talked about how I often desire to be doing things (I want to be more active, have hobbies, etc) but the... Read more

  • Today's Kick in the Butt

    11/6/2014 1:30:31 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    Yesterday was a difficult day. I wanted to get so much done. And I actually did do a lot. But I did not complete everything. My first thoughts are that I didn't have a successful day. I tried to run - it didn't go well. It hurt. A lot. But even with the pain, I still pushed through and d... Read more

  • My mountain

    11/5/2014 11:58:42 AM, by BLUEROSE73

    I have so many things ahead of me right now. It's overwhelming. Enough letting it get to me. Time to start defining my mountain. I want to go back to school and earn my MSW I want to run the hypothermic half in February I want to be in the best shape possible for my wedding - 3.14.15... Read more

  • Starting out

    11/5/2014 11:46:56 AM, by BLUEROSE73

    Realized today I've got a mountain ahead of me again. That thought started to overwhelm me, as a thought like that often does. But then I remembered how I've climbed this mountain before. I worried I wouldn't be strong enough to do it again I remembered just how strong I am - not only wh... Read more

  • Struggling with less than Zero motivation

    11/3/2014 1:42:00 PM, by BLUEROSE73

    I have less than zero motivation. I'm so full of rage, I just can't see past it at all. I know I need to get out and go for a run. I know I only have so much time to train for my next race I know running will help dissipate this rage - it might not be today, but it will help. I kno... Read more

  • My second session.

    10/29/2014 8:56:18 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    This afternoon I had my second therapy session. We started off by talking about how things have been over the past week. I've felt better, although yesterday was particularly difficult for some reason. I had to take care of some things in the morning that I'd asked Husband to do, because I des... Read more
