Here I am again, starting over on a Monday. I would be more upset with myself for being on a constant rollercoaster, but in spite of the fact that I'm constantly falling off the wagon, I have made progress on some of my goals. I'm so much st... Read more
I had a couple of cheese and crackers days

But I have big plans for next week. I'm kind of hoping the universe cooperates this time. Can I get through one week without getting earth shattering news? I've had enough of starting over on Monday every Monday.... Read more
Yesterday was freak out day
Saturday, March 25, 2017      3 comments

I started the day fairly confident, but my body understood what was coming before my mind did, and suddenly, after I got up, I felt terrible. I took all the pills I needed to get myself out of the house, and I was semi-ok, until, sitting in t... Read more
I didn't get enough sleep last night

Yesterday my husband told me he got the job he wants in Pennsylvania, and although it's good news in a way, it's bad news because I have to stay in Texas. We stayed up late celebrating and then even later talking about our fears, and I hoped I ... Read more
I walked a bit yesterday

I didn't make it to the gym, again, but it was cool enough that I walked around my daughters' campus yesterday. It was a brisk enough walk that I got sweaty and my legs had those electrical bubbles I get when I've used my muscles. I also wal... Read more
Didn't make it to the gym yesterday

But I did pull out my weights and use them long enough that my arms and shoulders are a bit sore this morning, along with, oddly enough, the backs of my legs. I tried my best to sleep early and well last night so I could get up this morning an... Read more
A Hitch!

I was going to go to the gym this morning, just for a leisurely stroll on the treadmill since allergies won't let me walk outside, but I forgot to ask my daughter for her house key when I handed over my keys to her so she could drive herself and... Read more
Feeling SO much better now
Monday, March 20, 2017      4 comments

I started feeling better two days ago, but I decided to wait until today to come‚Äč back again. While I was away I got two hand weights, enough food I should be eating to last this week, and the ten dollars the itty bitty two treadmill gym at my ... Read more
It's been a tough week
Thursday, March 16, 2017      3 comments

I won't go into details, but it's been bad enough since Tuesday afternoon that I now have a resurgence of my hyperthyroid symptoms, including trouble sleeping, brain fog, muscle weakness, crazy emotions and, um, intestinal difficulties. I'm tak... Read more
Moving more

Yesterday I headed off a panic attack by stretching, which was very satisfying. It's great when something works! Today I walked around three grocery stores trying to find everything I need, for about two hours. That's more than I've walked f... Read more
Everything is allergies!
Monday, March 13, 2017      2 comments

Here in North Texas the trees and flowers are blooming, and I love looking at the flowers, but the pollen is trying to murder me. Even after taking allergy pills, my nose runs constantly, I'm dizzy and tired and my eyes feel like sandpaper, an... Read more

It's chilly today and I like chilly. I also like that my husband is taking a day off from job hunting and studying his IT stuff to spend time with me. Sometimes it feels like I hardly have a husband he's gone so much, so I'm happy he's hangin... Read more
Attempting to be positive today
Saturday, March 11, 2017      3 comments

My older daughter tells me I complain too much, so I'm going to try to be positive, just for today. In spite of eating sugary foods two days in a row and generally eating more than I planned to this week, I lost another pound. I was prepared... Read more

I don't know why it's so hard to get on track and stay there. I've done it before, why can't I do it now? I had donuts last night. I didn't need to eat donuts! I knew I shouldn't, but I did anyway. If I could just stick with this for a ... Read more
Anxiety is back
Thursday, March 09, 2017      3 comments

I've cut back on my medication, partly because I don't know how long I'll actually be able to pay for it, and consequently anxiety is creeping back into my life. It's been a month since my husband lost his job, and even though he's been lookin... Read more
