This week is drawing to a close and I'm glad because ugh, it's been tough. My dad got out of his surgery just fine yesterday, and this morning he's driving everyone crazy barking orders. Sometimes his military background really shows. He's ... Read more
Emotionally Exhausted

Ugh, it's too depressing to write about. It's been a rough couple of days, and all I want to do is sleep. The height of my ambition today is taking a walk, later, but we'll see how that goes. First my dad has to get though his surgery ok, ... Read more
Well at least I'm exercising!

Yesterday was hard because my niece's 11 year old Golden Retriever is dying, right in front of me. He has a vet appointment tomorrow, and I'm pretty sure that he'll be put to sleep after that. It would be a hard and sad thing anyway, but my ni... Read more
I lost all the weight from my week of irresponsible eating plus a pound
Sunday, February 11, 2018      5 comments

I'm at 196 now, which is great because I started out at 219 back on the 8th of January. That's a lot of weight to lose in a few days over a month! I needed to move around more, as much as I needed to do anything. Well, ok, I needed to stop ... Read more
So I'm Not The Only One

Yesterday my sister and I went grocery shopping with my mom. My sister is dieting with me, because she's prediabetic and she has high blood pressure, and it's nice to have a dieting buddy, even though she does it differently than I do. She do... Read more

The good thing is that I stepped on a scale a few days early because I needed some extra motivation, and I was super pleased with the result. Dancing in the living room for about an hour most days really does help take off the pounds! I have... Read more
Somebody really should decide what's for dinner
Thursday, February 08, 2018      2 comments

So my mom and my sister are in a standoff over supper. First they both refused to say what they wanted, then they shot down each other's suggestions. Since I don't have much say in dinner, I usually find out what we're having in advance and ... Read more
So much better today!

I had a little asthma trouble this morning, but coffee fixed it well enough that I could spend some time dancing. Which is another good excuse to drink coffee: not only does it help my (inherited) bum liver, it helps my (also inherited) underach... Read more
Foiled by asthma and a headache
Tuesday, February 06, 2018      3 comments

The rest of the day I'm taking it easy because my head hurts and I've had trouble with asthma last night and today. I did get 14 minutes of exercise, but that was the maximum I could do with my lungs deciding to take a vacation. I'm still foll... Read more
New week, new determination
Monday, February 05, 2018      1 comments

My sister asked me to step on the scale today, after she did, and I didn't want to because last week didn't go well for me, foodwise. I gained six pounds! I'm not shocked, just kind of disappointed in myself. Today I'm trying to figure out wh... Read more
Third Day's the Charm?
Saturday, February 03, 2018      4 comments

Tuesday to Friday were not good diet days, but I'm hoping the third of February works out better. I finally got a really good sleep night, the best I've had since I started wearing my Fitbit, which should help. It took me two days and nights t... Read more

Ok so today was going to be the best start of a new month, I was going to be super good and set myself up for an incredibly healthy February. The first hitch happened when my mom announced that she wants to go to the local Indian buffet for lun... Read more
Great Day Yesterday

I can hardly believe it, but I got over 13000 steps and 64 exercise minutes yesterday. At the end of 2017, I could hardly walk up the stairs at my parents' house, and now I can dance for an hour! An hour in pieces throughout the day, but still... Read more
There's an upside
Tuesday, January 30, 2018      2 comments

I felt pretty bad about yesterday's dinner fiasco, but today, as soon as I had my coffee, euphoria hit and as of now I have over 4000 steps on my Fitbit, by far the highest number I've gotten before 9:30 in the morning. And I'm not even exhau... Read more
Yesterday was unexpectedly stressful
Tuesday, January 30, 2018      2 comments

My sister and my mom both have colds, and my sister feels bad enough that I'm scared it might be the flu. I'm worried for her, but also for my parents, because I certainly don't want them getting the flu. Or anyone else, including myself. I'v... Read more
