  • To Quote Myself

    4/26/2015 9:33:50 AM, by DGFOWLER

    Last week on Sunday I posted the following: "My goal is to get at least 35000 steps in this week and 210 minutes of exercise. That is my baseline, the bare minimum. Anything over that is 'icing on the 44 .' I will post my progress each day. How are you going to spend your week?" This is ... Read more

  • Honoring Rosie

    4/23/2015 6:34:55 AM, by DGFOWLER

    Many of you may remember Norman Rockwell's painting of Rosie the Riveter. Rosie passed away yesterday in Vermont. The painting I always admired most was the one that said "We Can Do It"...we can you know.. if we keep trying. She was a telephone operator and was painted at the age of 19.... Read more

  • Coming clean

    4/23/2015 2:19:51 AM, by NOWYOUDIDIT

    I had left my tracker at 210. (pounds) because that was what I weighed up until May 2014. And then I slowly gained back the 20 pounds I lost. Yup. In 8 months I re-gained it. And I was devastated. As I tried to "quit" worrying about the weight. I submerged myself in learning and readin... Read more

  • Let's Face It.. I HAVE Been a Slacker

    4/20/2015 6:29:32 AM, by DGFOWLER

    The numbers are proof. I don't think I have ever had this low of numbers for my SP tracker since my knee surgery. I've already been saying I've been in a rut but this past week sorely proved that fact to be true. I WILL NOT BEAT MYSELF UP!!! That will not do me any good. Instead I have gon... Read more

    So....I thought by drinking all of the extra water I would replenish my muscles and not have so many cramps last night..WRONG!!!! I still had them all night long. I had such a hard time getting comfortable. I shot up out of bed countless times because I would get a leg cramp. My muscles qu... Read more

    What a day! What a day! It's been a good one (so far.) I agreed to work over 4 hours today. Noon - 4pm. I took the later shift so I wouldn't have to wake up early. I cannot say the same thing though for Sunday. I also picked that up if my boss would agree to give me Monday off. So I fo... Read more

  • Is it Finally Friday?

    4/10/2015 6:22:58 AM, by DGFOWLER

    It has been one of my hardest weeks ever. Johnathan's death (my co-workers son) has just really thrown me for a loop. It has brought out emotions so strong and he's not even my son, but he's my friend's son and that makes it hurt just as bad. Tomorrow is Johnathan's viewing. I need to go b... Read more
