Nearly one month. YOWZERS!
Tuesday, May 01, 2012      1 comments

Wow. Can't believe I haven't journaled for nearly one month. I have swung with the highs and lows of the pretty much 3 lb margin that is my weight on the scale. It climbs. It drops. Nothing seems to budge it at all. On the down sid... Read more
lift and separate
Monday, April 09, 2012      0 comments

Yeah, it kinda felt like that when I picked up the broom stick and started doing the lifting exercises I have not done in several weeks. I lifted and thought I was about gonna separate the shoulder from the socket. But, thankfully, it didn't h... Read more

Steady numbers, please go steady with me again. You know I would rather be with you than those bigger boys! You make me feel better! ( But shhhhhhhhh..............will you be mad if I say I really like the smaller guys the best of all?) ... Read more
So hurt it's exciting

Sometimes the saying goes "I'm so excited it hurts!" LOLOLOL and hehehehehehe! In my case, I'm hurting and aching but I'm excited. I started a challenge today with one of my teams. By the end of the day I decided to up my commitment and ... Read more
Singing in the rain
Tuesday, April 03, 2012      0 comments

I gotta love this rain. There's singing in the rain. I'm about to try cycling in the rain. Spinning in the rain? Whatever. On our porch there's a stationary bike. It works. Its motor isn't on, but the pedals work and I can operate it.... Read more

The last time I tried to write in the blog, it didn't take. It was a weird kind of thing, and the hubby wasn't here to help me figure out the problem, and I didn't remember to go back and try again. That's OK. Two days of walking hitting ... Read more
A laid-back kinda day
Sunday, March 25, 2012      0 comments

It was a holiday, laid-back kind of day. Then again, Sundays are days of rest, nicht wahr? So, I did not take stats this AM. I might not take them tomorrow, either. I have no idea what my BG was today, nor my BP, nor my weight. That is ... Read more
The Citrucel explosion and the shrinking body
Saturday, March 24, 2012      0 comments

OK, I really don't know why I decided to title it like that. This is, however, about Citrucel and the apparently shrinking body that I didn't know I'm experiencing. The Citrucel first. I had a colonoscopy on Thursday. The doc told my hub... Read more

First things first. The scale says I dropped a pound to a new low. I hope it's not a "false low" so I'm going to celebrate. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!1 Whoopeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Get out the party hats! Toot on the noisemakers!!! Dance up an... Read more
Down the hatch! Bottoms up!
Wednesday, March 21, 2012      1 comments

I sit here in my comfy, newly-puchasedd capri-length sweat pants with white stripe down each side. I'm breaking them in for tomorrow when I will indeed be literally bottoms-up as a surgeon examines my bum via colonoscopy. To that end, I'm drin... Read more
Step damage? HUH. But the blood sugar's improved!
Tuesday, March 20, 2012      1 comments

Step damage? WHAT step damage? Yesterday, being very rainy, didn't see me trucking so much. We didn't go anywhere, and I didn't walk as much as I normally would, since I used the day to do a lot of errands. I was on my feet more than usual y... Read more
That funky pedimomommymometer!
Monday, March 19, 2012      0 comments

My pedimommymometer went beserk on me last week. It gave inaccurate counts, and I had to subtract from the step total. Even so, a cause for celebration!!! Firstly, I've lost 8 lbs since my hubby last set the meter. Ok, OK. It was in the... Read more

I began thinking about choices after I finished the last blog. I was actually going to edit that blog, but have decided to post another blog entry instead. I know I have to lose weight. If I keep having to take IB to deal with the Cyclose... Read more
A veritable, verdant carpet
Thursday, March 15, 2012      0 comments

I have been watching green-up as I drive home. My beloved redbuds are finally starting to blossom and show their dainty pinkish leaves. The pastures that line my last 5-7 minutes of the drive home are a veritable, lush verdant carpet. It's co... Read more
Somnolence doesn't come on sunshiny days
Wednesday, March 14, 2012      2 comments

OK. I'm not somnolent. I AM drowsy. I hope that this isn't going to increase as I increase the Cycloset. I do believe this is definitely part of the Cycloset. I can't take the Metformin, though. It is simply not metabolizing properly. ... Read more
