Oh yes, and Chris applied for another job. This one is Parking Enforcement for the City of Seattle. He actually applied for it last week and they turned him down. So he contacted them and asked if there is anything he can do to improve his chances. There was one question that she said he should work on. For some reason, we checked no for whether he had experience with MS Office. He certainly does have experience with it and they said he would need that for the job. So they said he could re-apply since the listing was still open. So we took care of that last night.

So fingers crossed. The Postal Service would be fine if he could get a full-time permanent position. But without that, and no indication when something like that might come up, he'd just feel better with something more permanent. He certainly would sometimes deal with not so nice people but he thinks he can handle that. The pay and benefits are way ahead of the Postal Service.

I did better yesterday. Didn't get as much exercise as I wanted but I ate better. As usual, there were pitfalls and I have to do better at sidestepping those. It wasn't perfect but it was certainly an improvement. I have another busy day today so I'll have to put in some extra effort to avoid those pitfalls.

Yesterday was my appointment with the accountant to go over the Easy Shoppe books. Shouldn't be too bad but we need to find out if we are going to have to pay a big chunk of taxes as a result of the sale. We don't have the money and took a big loss on the business but the IRS has it's own way of looking at things. We'll see how it goes!

I've been there Kelly and I know how it is. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

I've been doing a bit of soul searching myself and am trying to figure out why I don't seem to want to get better. All the crap I eat causes me pain in so many ways. I ignore it and eat the stuff anyway. I guess the pain isn't bad enough. Yet. How stupid is that?

So I've challenged myself for these next four days. To set a food plan and stick to it. To get extra exercise where I can. And to just wrap my mind around what I want. I want to be healthy and reasonably free of pain. And yes, a cool side benefit is that I will look better. I'm really going to try to keep that in mind these next few days and see if I can't get back on track.

Sorry I haven't been supporting you very well, my friend.
I'm a bit of a mess, I'm afraid.
Caught in a slump and having trouble clawing my way out.

Enjoy your couple days off.
Thinking of you and wishing you all the best!

Still didn't sleep great last night. May need to resort to help with that for a few days. Taking tomorrow and Friday off so that will help. I have things to do but won't have to go to work so going to try to keep it restful. Still struggling with food. Maybe I'll take these few days to try to get better organized and rethink my goals.

Great class last night! I'm really glad I'm doing this. Had a little trouble sleeping last night because I was a little keyed up. But I got to sleep in and still got a pretty decent night's sleep. Now to get the food in line!

I know how that is Kelly. Many of the restrictions that were put in place here after 9/11 have never been removed. But you can't live life scared either because that's no kind of life, is it? You do that and the terrorists win.

Sad day, yes. And so senseless. I didn't know the details about the men that were killed. Now a 6 year old boy will not know his father. That is tragic.

I for one am glad for the support we have always received from our Canadian friends and I hope you all know that you have ours now. As I said, you are all in my prayers.

Early Friday and I finally got a good night sleep last night, ignoring Thursday night football. Hope this is a better football weekend for me than the last few have been! GO HAWKS!

Thanks for that, Mary. It IS a terrible and tragic thing, and not something we've experienced a lot of "on our own turf", although we are, of course, united with the US and well aware of the threat.
I find these instances particularly disturbing - yesterday's incident was a reserve soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial... a ceremonial guard, right? And the young man was a single father of a 6 year old boy. Senseless. On Monday, 2 military personnel in Quebec were run down and killed by someone in a vehicle.
We don't yet know the extent of the threats or if the instances are connected at all. What is likely is that the freedom of access we have enjoyed in our capitol is likely going to be much more restricted going forward.
It is a sad day.

Meant to say Kelly that the victims of the attacks in Ottawa are in my prayers. It doesn't take an attack the size of 911. Any attack is a frightening thing and can leave everyone with a huge sense of vulnerability. Just doesn't seem like something like that can happen in a country lIke Canada. Hope ando pray that you all are able to retain your sense of security. Such a senseless thing.

I don't know Kelly. The problem is not that I'm hungry. When I'm eating right, sometimes I can't even eat everything I planned for. The problem is that I'm craving specific things. Right now, mostly salty, high fat stuff (read chips). I find most of the shakes to taste too sweet, regardless of the sugar content. And in spite of the calorie load, I find them unsatisfying. Remember I tried them earlier in the year. That was when my stomach issues began and I eliminated them as a potential source of the problem. I hesitate to go back on them now. I like the foods I've planned for. I eat real, whole foods. The less I indulge my cravings, surprisingly, the quicker they go away. I just need to figure out how to take that first step.

I'm tired this week. I didn't get extra rest on Tuesday which I try to do because Monday and Wednesday are late nights. I'm really going to try to get to bed early tonight.

Well... 2 outta 3 ain't bad, as they say..

But NO! The vending machine is NOT your friend.

My latest little trick:
Trying to do meal shakes was about killing me... just wasn't satisfying enough to hold off my hunger at all. BUT, I've been doing a shake when I get the mid-afternoon hungries. Seems to be really good! It gives me a big dose of nutrition including some major protein, so for about the same calories as a granola bar, I'm filling up with a really nutritious shake. And it keeps me away from the vending machine.

Maybe?

Thanks for checking in Kelly. Been missing you. Glad to hear things are getting a little better. Be sure you're taking care of you.

I had a bad food and exercise weekend. Guess I should be able to take a break now and then. Need to get back to it today. I'm all organized and ready for class tonight. I really need to stick to just what I brought today.

So sad about my 'Hawks. It's got to get better soon if the season is to be salvaged. Hope they can get it done.

Hey Mar... Sorry I've been MiA.
Life is pretty stressful right now, but I am starting to put the pieces together and can see the possibility of the sun shining again at some point.

Keep putting one foot in front of the other and do the best you can to keep your health as your priority my friend,
Love and miss you... Thinking of you always.

Good walking day yesterday. It's my early Friday and I'm off to an okay start. A little tired. I really need to get to bed earlier on Thursday nights. Too much Thursday Night Football!

Good day today for getting things done. I've got some class work to do as well as trying to finish up some documentation on one of my bigger projects. It's good to be busy. I don't thinks so much about food. Also, going to try to get in a big walk at lunch. I'm okay on my goals this week but would like to do a little better. No rain so no excuses!

No treadmill yesterday. Bad food choices. Today is a do over! And I'm hungry already. It rained a lot last night but finished up in time for me to walk to the bus. That's something anyway!

I overslept this morning. Why is it that I can't sleep when I need to but seem to do just fine when it's time to get up? Anyway, made for a bit of a hectic morning. I actually usually sleep in anyway the day after class but I need to take Jake to the doc this afternoon so I'm leaving early instead of coming in late. It took a lot of scrambling but I made it in on time. Helps that I already planned to drive. I won't get a walk in today so I'm hoping to hit the treadmill this afternoon when I get home.

Didn't do so well with food yesterday. The fatigue always gets to me. Or I should say I let it get to me. Going to try hard to do better today. I did get a little extra sleep anyway. That should help. And I only have to make it until 1 pm. I should be able to do that!

What an ugly football weekend! First my Cougs on Friday. Then the 'Hawks dropped one that the team I know would have easily one. These guys just aren't playing quite like themselves in the important games. I sure hope they can turn that around!

I had an okay weekend for food and activity. I closed out the week ahead of goal on steps again. A few things are trying to get in the way this week so I'm really going to have to work at it to be sure I get out there and walk.

Got my food plans in place. Long day today with class tonight and I didn't sleep well last night so it's going to take all I've got to stay on track.

Kind of fun for Chris today. It's a federal holiday today but one the state has not recognized in years. So for a nice change, I had to go off to work while he gets a day off. Unfortunately, he doesn't get paid either. Still, it's a nice change. I left him trying to decide just what he was going to do with it.

Thanks Kelly. Had an okay day yesterday but experienced some dizziness. Of course, right before I had to go to a meeting. My boss suggested I have some chocolate milk. Protein and sugar. I didn't go for that but instead for some Greek yogurt I had and he gave me a little bit of chocolate. Seemed to work and I went off to my meeting feeling better. I really didn't eat very well yesterday. Good doctor visit seems to mean relax for a day and eat what I want. Boss was likely right that my blood sugar was off a little bit. So, food obviously really affects me. How much more evidence do I need? And when will I finally reach the point where I've had enough feeling bad? Where feeling good outweighs eating some of the foods I want that I know I shouldn't eat?

Everything in moderation, right? Not so sure for me. There are clearly some foods that make me feel bad, even if I eat them just once. Even in normal to small amounts. And some of the ones that might be okay in small amounts will set me off to eat more or other stuff I shouldn't have. So the docs suggestion of a food diary I think is a really good idea. Time to figure this stuff out.

I'm so happy to see your positive report, Mary.
I agree that careful screening is wise... but that there is a balance. I know you'll sort out what's right for you.
Happy to see you on the right track.
Big hugs and Happy Canadian Thanksgiving (Monday)!

Doctor appointment yesterday. BP 120/72! Wow did it feel great to see that! I've had a series of pretty alarming readings over the last year or so. Each time the doc and I agreed that the circumstances may have been contributing to it. But I still felt that I clearly needed to do something about it. And it appears maybe I'm doing something right.

As for the abdominal pain, he really feels that they have checked thoroughly and that there is nothing to be seen. Of course, he recommends that I continue to try and lose weight. With my family history, that is probably my best course for prevention. Also, I'm to keep a food diary, most notably to track what I've eaten just before I feel the pain. This is just in case there is a food correlation. And I've been laying off the ab work. He suggests I get back to that to see if it changes anything for better or worse, which could indicate that all of this is simply a muscular problem.

But what he sees as a separate issue is my family history of pancreatic cancer. It is enough in his view to warrant annual screening. The problem is that the screenings carry their own risk. Either they're invasive (endoscopy) or they involve exposure to radiation (CT scan) although that is pretty minimal. They can also be spendy but with his recommendation, insurance will cover it. He recommends using both tests but doing them in alternate years. Pancreatic cancer, like many others, is actually curable if caught early. The problem is that it generally displays no symptoms until the very late stages. So the idea is that if it's caught soon enough, they can do something about it.

The question is, just how paranoid should I be? My sister had her own risk factors. While she ate carefully and never drank or smoked, she was exposed to some pretty harsh chemicals due to the business they owned. I have my weight and alcohol consumption. We'll just have to see what the future brings. My immediate concern is the pain and what I can do to take better care of myself. I don't have cancer. And for now, that obviously is a huge relief!

Thanks Kelly. It feels good when I do things right, both mentally and physically. I managed to avoid the vending machine yesterday. Today is another day. I really need to do it again. Baby steps!

I really got in a lot of walking yesterday, tracking over 17,000 steps and 53 flights of stairs. Over 8 miles. Not too bad. I'd like to have at least one other day like that this week.

Took the bus to class last night. I was a little nervous about it since the class is in downtown Seattle. But there were a lot of people around and I felt pretty secure. Saves me a lot of money to do it that way. Thought I would get more walking in doing that but I really didn't. I only walked to the bank at lunch yesterday so I didn't quite make my 10,000 steps for the day. I'll really try to do better about that. It's a long day and I can surely fit in a walk somewhere in the middle of it. I'm really going to make an effort to get all my course work done early this week. It's mostly reading and that's so easy to put off until later.

Today, I got to sleep in and just got to work. Kind of nice to walk to the bus in daylight but there is a lot more traffic at that time of the morning. I really need to try hard to stick with my food plans. I'm still slowly losing, even with the occasional trips to the vending machine but I could do better. I really don't feel very good when I eat that stuff. Something I try hard to remind myself of as I walk mindlessly down the hall. Something needs to click there and I need to figure out how to make that happen.

Busy day today. I have a lot to do for my projects as well as finishing up some course work for class tonight. Still in my old procrastination ways. There will be a lot of work to do and I really need to be better about not putting it off.

'Hawks play tonight and I will be missing it. I take my laptop to class so I'll be able to peek at the score from time to time. But I'll need to be paying attention so I won't be able to really follow the game. First one I've missed in a very long time!

I'm really going to try to get in a walk today at lunch. Schedule is tight but I should be able to do it. I'll need the break. Otherwise, it will be a very long day!

GO HAWKS!!!

Hi Kelly! You can go to www.dutchovendude.com. He has a whole bunch of recipes. His instructions aren't always totally clear but not too bad. So far, I've only tried the chicken pot pie and the shepherd pie. Jake and I thought both were really good. Chris only liked the chicken pot pie. I plan to look at a few more.

Off to church this morning. We're singing one of my favorite songs, "Down to the River to Pray". I love that one.

It's been a good week. Time to get ready for class tomorrow!

Not a bad week. I've already met my weekly goal of 70,000 steps so today and tomorrow are extra over that. I did okay with food. Really need to work on it this weekend to stay on track.

Last weekend, Chris and I got a dutch oven. I've never had one before but they can be great for camping and cooking over a fire. So I'm trying out recipes to see what might work. Admittedly, it's a lot easier with a regular stove and oven. I'll need to learn how to do it in the wild. Many use charcoal briquettes and put them on top of the dutch oven when baking. But temperature control is definitely an issue.

So anyway, the recipes can be kind of fun. Last weekend I made a chicken pot pie. Tonight I'm going to try a shepherd pie. The calories per serving for both of these are surprisingly low enough. Under 400 calories which is fine if that's your whole meal. I do find the fat percentage to be a little on the higher end of what I'd like. Still, with a generally low fat diet, they can work. It's always fun to try new stuff.

Not as early in today as I have to stay a little late for a meeting. I'm really going to try to get in a walk between meetings too as there was no walk to the bus today.

Really going to make a better effort to avoid the junk food. Next week, I see the pancreatic specialist. I'd like to know if I'm doing the right stuff and I need to better affirm my commitment to getting better.

Thanks Kelly. Glad you had a nice trip. In spite of the Chicago connection. I hate going through there too and it's actually mostly on the way for me.

Nice morning today and I'm actually back in my FitFlops and light sweater. Perfect for walking to the bus. I avoid shoes for as long as I can, and when I do wear them, it's usually more because people look at me funny when I'm walking in the rain with FitFlops than it is because I need to keep my feet warm. I so prefer having my feet bare. When I finally put them away for the winter, I practically count the days until I can wear them again.

Still struggling a little bit with the food but nothing tragic. I'm still getting used to the more hectic schedule and I think I'm just turning to comfort foods. It may sound a bit counterintuitive but even when I eat something junky, I make myself eat all the good food I planned on even though it means extra calories. That way, I'm not sacrificing the nutrition for the junk. Also, the food I plan is enough to make me feel full and keeps me from letting the junk turn into a binge.

I am getting in a lot more good exercise this week. The weather helps. I'm really going to have to figure that out because I need the exercise, whether it's raining or not!

Hey Girl!
We're back... had a wonderful sunny weekend at the beach. Travel day was nonsense as we had a connection in Chicago... NOT GOOD!

Anyway, I'm back to work... super tired... but reconnected with my hubby which was the whole point.

Glad you're continuing to walk things out here girlfriend. Proud of you!

Really busy day yesterday but I stuck to my plans and did pretty well. Walked to the bus today so I'm off to a good start. We have a breakfast for the start of the year today. It's usually pretty light fare but I'm going to eat my oatmeal before I go to keep me from overindulging.

The class was really good and I got there feeling pretty organized and ready. We'll see how well I keep that up. Did well with food and got in a lot of exercise running around. I got to sleep in a bit today, a concession from my boss for the time spent in class. I didn't sleep much extra because I woke when Chris did. Still, it was nice to not have to hurry around. The rain held off for my walk to the bus and I had a meeting on the other side of campus. So I'm already close to goal on today's walking. I'll probably have to walk home too as Chris is unlikely to get home in time to give me a ride.

He's getting a little stressed about his job. Today, he has driver training. He has to learn to drive a truck with the wheel on the right. Tomorrow, he goes on his route with someone who knows it. The next day he's on his own! One day of training. He figures it's going to take him more than 10 hours. Maybe it won't be that bad but it's so hard to tell. He's a smart man. I'm sure he'll figure it out pretty quickly.

Busy weekend. Spent a nice day with Chris on Saturday. Hard to say if we'll get to do that again any time soon. As he gets into work, he'll be picking up overtime when he can. We may have a few weeks yet before he really gets much of that so we'll see how it goes.

I had an okay weekend for food. Not enough exercise. I start my class tonight and so tried to get a little organized yesterday. Made a pot of soup and got laundry done. No Seahawks game as it was their bye week. Next week they play on Monday night so there will be no big game on the weekend again and I'll miss their game because I'll be in class. That will be hard but it is what it is.

Got in early today and cleaned the break room. We are required to clean up after ourselves and have no custodian service for that room. Makes sense right? We're a bunch of professionals who ought to be able to clean up after ourselves. None of us would dream of leaving a mess for someone else to clean. Ya think?

Hardly. I work with all men. To be fair, not all of them are slobs. But most of them think nothing of leaving a spill on the counter to get crusty and attract bugs. They don't even consider covering their food in the microwave so it doesn't splatter when cooking. I know I'm not perfect but I'm pretty careful about cleaning up after myself

So today, I brought in my scrubber and a microwave dish. I read something where you boil water in the microwave for 4 or 5 minutes and it's really easy to clean. It took about 9 minutes but it worked pretty well and that microwave is cleaner than it's been in a really long time. I was excited because one guy said last week that he would clean out the fridge. He only cleared out all the old food, still leaving a mess of spills and crumbs. I used the hot water from the microwave and cleaned that all out too. It looks like new.

So the break room is nice again and I feel good about getting it done. I wonder how long it will last. Probably until about 5 minutes after 8 am this morning. Sigh. I need to put up a sign that says, "Your mother doesn't work here!"

Hope you have a great time Kelly!

A little bit of a struggle with food for me yesterday. Not getting as much exercise either with the nasty weather. I'm going to have to figure out what to do when it's not good to go outside. Obviously, that will be more frequent now. Hoping to get in a walk today as they're talking about the rain letting up mid-day.

I overslept this morning but it was good because I needed it. I had planned to drive today anyway. Got to get home to make a birthday cake for my girl!

I slept really poorly last night which can be a recipe for disaster. I'll just need to be extra vigilant today. Things are really gearing up at work now and with class starting next week, I'm feeling the need to be organized. So I spent some time evaluating everything I have to do and made a to do list with due dates and such. It will be a living document for me where I can check off tasks, add new stuff, and delete what's been completed. Hoping that will help me to stay on top of things.

Choir tonight. Dinner's already made as Chris made a big batch of chili a couple of days ago. Always takes a few days to finish that off. Especially when adding in other meals so we have some variety. But tonight it just needs to be easy so that'll do.

Tomorrow, my oldest baby is 22! Can't believe that one. So I will be cooking a nice dinner. I may try to get off a little early so I can go home and bake a cake! Oh man, cake! That's just what I need!

Thanks Kelly. I am down just a bit but I'm thinking slow is good for now. Never heard of those shakes. Hope it works for you. A little change is good but just don't go too hungry for too long.

I got mixed reviews from Chris after his first day. He said they got him a bit enthused about stuff but then, there are absolutely no benefits and I thinks he's a bit discouraged by that. With no idea how long it might take for him to get a career position, I know it's a little hard for him to take. He's had the crap job for so long, I just hate to see him do something else that he dislikes. Hopefully, he can find a way to be happy with it and wait it out or find something better.

I had a good day yesterday. Busy too which always helps but I was really tired last night. Wonder if all the exercise and lower calories is starting to wear on me a bit. Going to try to keep it up today. The schedule is a little tight but I'm really going to try to get a good walk in at lunch. If it doesn't rain!

Tough game yesterday. Always great to pull a win out of a day like that! Go Hawks!

Had a pretty good weekend as far as food goes. Activity levels were a little low but I had such a good week that I think that's okay. Another week and I'm going to try hard to make it another good one!

I didn't go on the walk. Boo! But I did get some cleaning done that was much needed. Ate well. All in all, a good day. I now have to be sure that Chris has stuff to make lunches because he'll need to bring it with him. First day of work tomorrow for him so today, he went fishing!

As for me, it's Seahawks Sunday and I have to believe they will do better than last week. I'm headed out to my brother's to watch the game with him. That should be fun! For now, off to church! No choir today so I just get to listen and sing along with the kids from the pews. I can do that!

Go Hawks!!

Still failed on the "no thank you" and grabbed a doughnut at first opportunity. Not good. Stayed true to the break and still got in 10,000 steps. Just. But I'm well over goal for the week already and there's two days left (Fitbit is on a M-S schedule) so I'm doing okay and can actually afford the doughnut. I'm leaps and bounds ahead of the last few weeks!

Today I'm getting ready to head out for a walk. Then I'm cleaning. And I mean it this time!

I hope it goes well for you, girlfriend.

When I was really on track, I remembered 'no thank you' and I also learned to say 'I don't eat that'... not I CAN"T.... I don't. I remember it being a pretty powerful tool at the time - I'm trying to claw my way back there too.....

Have a wonderful weekend!

It's been a pretty good week. A couple of slip ups but for the most part, I stuck to my plans and got in a tremendous amount of walking. I feel pretty good. Today will be busy and I think I'll take it off, at least as far as extra walking goes. Still going to try to stick to good eating and I have to make a trip across campus so it will still be respectable. Another check in this morning and I've been practicing "no thank you" all night.

Thanks Kelly! I ended up with an omelet and found the break room with a microwave in the building I was working in. But them some one brought donuts where we were working. Why are the words "no thank you" not in my vocabulary? :(

At least I'll have a chance to get a walk in at lunch. No walk this morning in the rain. The weekend should be nice anyway!

Another good day yesterday with a big walk at lunch and I stuck to all my food plans. I know I can do it again today as each day gets a little easier. Chris is making a new recipe tonight so I have no idea what that's going to be like. I'll have to put it in the tracker later. The answer for me, when I don't know the calories, always seems to be just keep the portion small. I love left overs for lunch anyway.

Tomorrow will be a challenge as I'm working a shift first thing in the morning, checking students in. I'll need to get here and then figure out how to make time for breakfast. I don't like to eat it before I leave because then it's doesn't stay with me as long and I have to eat again sooner. I want something that will carry me through the whole shift. I'll figure something out.

I did manage to avoid the vending machine yesterday. It's only one day so not an official break up yet but it's feelings are definitely hurt. Not my problem though. It was nice to have a good day. Lots of walking and good for me food.

Today, I'm going to try really hard to make it two days in a row. Things start getting busy around here on Thursday. I would have liked to have had good habits more firmly re-established but if I can at least get in a few days and get myself organized, maybe I can get through it anyway.

I prefer secluded hikes too Kelly. But my friend is not a morning person and then something came up where she just couldn't get going before 10 am. Around here on a weekend like this was, if you don't get there early, you're sunk.

No problem getting my walking today. We had a problem where someone had to go to each of our units to run a task. I've already been all over campus and it's only 9:40!

Hey girl!
Glad you had a good hike - although I think the crowds would scare me off... I love those secluded, quiet, just me and nature hikes the best!

Sorry about your Hawks... but there is TIME! With a fan like you - SHEESH - they've GOT to start bringing their best game! LOL

No - the vending machine is no friend to anyone.
Did you know more people die by vending machine than by lightening strikes?! (funny little factoid)...

Stick to it, girl. You've got this.

A goal only seems unreachable until you DECIDE you're going to do it!

I am so depressed! I expected the Hawks to lose some games but not so soon. And to be so outplayed. Props to San Diego. They played a great game. This is how it's going to be this year. Every team will be gunning for the Hawks and will bring their very best. It's still very early in the season so hopefully, this is a wake up call for them.

Not too sore today from my hike. Mostly my calves and that's about it. Yesterday, my glutes were a little sore when standing for choir. So I know I did some work. Today, I'm determined to stick with my food plans and get some extra walking in at lunch. Kind of a hard day to fit it in but even a short one would be good. I overslept and had to drive in so no walk to the bus, making it even more important.

My mantra for today: The vending machine is not my friend!

Okay so not an obscure hike. We basically went on the most popular hike in the state. But we knew it had a huge parking lot. We found a place to park but had to deal with a lot of people on the trail. Still, it was a beautiful day and the hike was plenty challenging. Not bad for 53!

Seahawks Sunday. Off to church for the first Sunday of choir. Then home for the game and a mountain of laundry! Go Hawks!!!

House still dirty. I took a real day off instead. I feel kind of bad though. Like I should have done something. Today, I'm trying to work in a hike. I invited a friend who said she'd go but now can't leave until 10 am. But that can be a problem for parking at any of the trail heads on a day like this. So I'm going to try to find some obscure hike that's not too hard and see if we can still do it.

Funny story. There was some kind of big crisis at work yesterday and I saw emails saying that everyone was expected to stay and help until it was resolved. I sure know how to pick my days off!
