Tough week
Monday, May 10, 2021      4 comments

It takes 2 to Skype. I didn’t initiate any conversations with my family last weekend to get Skype dates set, and nobody seemed to notice... that was kind of a bummer. Did talk to mom and dad for a couple of minutes yesterday to wish Happy Moth... Read more

Pharmacist here. Had a long day at work. Feeling trapped in my job because the market is saturated (no jobs) and the schools are all pumping out new graduates who don’t know how low the big chains are low-balling them on salary. I left a mana... Read more
Weigh in gains
Wednesday, May 05, 2021      2 comments

For the third time all year I gained instead of lost on the scale. I’m still in one-derland (!!!) but the number went up instead of down. Was I surprised? No. I had a lazy week. Was the lazy week worth it? No. Saturday I chose not to work... Read more

I had a bad attitude this morning... I really think it was because I hadn’t gone for a walk/run in a couple of days. Yoga is good but my body is craving the aerobic exercise. What a change!! I used to crave sitting on my butt, watching TV. We... Read more
Sparkin’ along

I got an email saying I had Spark mail... I had 11 pages of Spark mail, people! Apparently I didn’t know how to check it? The app works differently than the website, and not all of the things you can do are available to access on both? Anywho... Read more

The morning pharmacist (who was filling in for the pharmacy manager) at my store didn’t show up today, so there was big scramble to get everything covered, especially since we only do COVID vaccinations in the mornings! I was originally schedul... Read more

Tomorrow is weigh in day... I had a few days of splurge on food, but tracked it all! Also rested more than I intended because my body said I needed to. Menstrual cycles can be a b-word 🙄😂 Got to Skype with my sister and her family in NY, wh... Read more

Felt uber-productive at work today... was on a roll helping people who were extra spicy, too! Could have avoided walking after work with a blister and sore feet getting me down and cooler, cloudy, gloomy weather. Instead I remembered I need to... Read more

If you haven’t ever heard of it (because I was sad I didn’t know sooner) there is an app called Vizer that will donate a healthy meal to a person in need every day that you complete 10,000 steps or complete 30 minutes of exercise a day... I’m on... Read more
Yay Easter!!
Saturday, April 03, 2021      3 comments

Easter is my favorite holiday. For its meaning and also for the candy. I always go too far on peeps, Cadbury caramel eggs and jellybeans. I think last year I made myself sick a dozen times eating too many jellybeans... you’d think I’d learn a... Read more
