How rude

I usually wait for inspiration before writing my blog post. This one just fell in my lap. I was just finishing lunch at my desk when a coworker came over to ask me a question. I just met her a couple of months ago when she became part of my... Read more

Last night I went out to dinner with my bf and his family. It was his mom's birthday a few days ago and she chose Olive Garden. I did my homework and stuck to my first. I ordered the herb-grilled salmon, which comes with steamed brocco... Read more
Good week!

I had a pretty good week in terms of food and eating. Two nights this week I didn't have anything to eat after dinner! This is pretty huge for me...very rare in the past. Perhaps it's a new trend. ... Read more
Workday lunch

I almost always bring my lunch to work, and I almost always have a balanced, healthy sandwich. I have a multi-grain or rye sandwich thin, lots of Boston lettuce, about a teaspoon of mustard, 1 slice of low sodium cheese (various kinds), and 2-3 ... Read more

So...last night, I brushed my teeth and I was getting ready for bed. My boyfriend came in and we were talking for a bit, but he wasn't going to bed yet. I said something about how I didn't have any snacks or dessert that night after dinner. I wa... Read more

Yesterday, it was so hot and humid that my boyfriend and I could not cook or even eat in our apartment, so we went to Applebee's. We didn't even care where we went, but we just had to go somewhere with air conditioning! We do have AC but only in... Read more

Provided it doesn't rain anymore, I'm going to play softball tonight for the first time in several weeks! The first few weeks were because we couldn't play because it was either raining or the fields were drenched. But the last two weeks, I have... Read more

I'm not someone who's regularly kept a journal or blog before. I sort of like it. It's just a way to get my thoughts out in a coherent way. I took a trip to New Zealand a few years ago, and I kept an excellent journal every single day. I knew I'... Read more

This weekend kind of sped by. Saturday seemed pretty long but yesterday seemed too short. Maybe that's just because it was Sunday and I knew today was coming. It's not that I even dislike coming to work. I've just always had an issue with things... Read more

I had my iodine treatment yesterday, which is a drink flavored with strawberry Kool-Aid. I don't feel any different, but I'm now radioactive for the next three months. I only have restrictions for the next week though. I have to sleep alone for ... Read more

So, I went for my thyroid uptake and scan yesterday, which was done promptly. Unfortunately, I then waited for 1.5 hours. When the secretary finally called me up, she said that the technician had actually forgotten to bring up my iodine drink (t... Read more
Big couple of days

So, I was diagnosed with Grave's Disease (one type of hyperthyroidism) about 2 months ago. I saw an endocrinologist right away, who said my condition was "very severe" and I started on medication that night. My pulse was extremely fast (~140) an... Read more

After weeks of not using SP much, and not tracking my food specifically, I've been using the food tracker about 75% of the time for the last 2 weeks. Yesterday, for the first time since then, I tracked every single thing that passed my lips AND ... Read more
Day after

Yes! I'm proud to say I didn't over-indulge at dinner yesterday! I ended up not eating any of the bread and butter; for some weird reason I wasn't even in the mood! I ate my entire salad as planned. There were no low fat or low sodium alternativ... Read more
