Libby and the bad attitude that was sent packing.
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      4 comments

I needed a huge attitude adjustment today. Fortunately for me, I have Libby. I was running behind all day, orienting a Home Health RN to Home Hospice and I didn't do my charting at all. Don't get me wrong, I love orienting new people ... Read more

Getting real: Goals for 9/8/10
Tuesday, September 07, 2010      6 comments

I guess the trick is going to be to write my goals for the following day before I go to bed. It's to easy to say 'I'll do it tomorrow.' I'm letting you all know that I'm putting myself on notice. I'll check back in tomorrow to let you all kno... Read more
Getting back to it. Motivation needed.

I've been really distracted with life these last few weeks and haven't been paying much attention to what I am eating. What is exercise again? I think I forgot for a while. The weight has started to pile back on and I'm not happy about it. ... Read more

I really didn't want to

but I did. I got on the bike for 30 minutes, worked it. Now I feel great. I'm so glad I stuck with my original plan and didn't make excuses (I'm on call- that's usually a great reason to not do anything but watch TV). I also did my ... Read more

Saturday, July 24, 2010      2 comments

I haven't been around Spark People much this week and it shows. Fortunately, I get to get back in the saddle tomorrow. Staycations are so unpredictable. It's been a hectic week. It was great to see my dad and step-mom; it'd been about... Read more

I started my 9 day break from work today. I'm planning to do well with my tracking food but am not sure how to make it work. We are going to be out and about in the hills quite a bit and probably won't be packing lunches. My dad and his wife... Read more
The last couple of days have been BLAH
Monday, July 12, 2010      1 comments

Just what the title says. I'm determined that it won't stay that way though. Today I did force myself to go for a walk. I wasn't walking long before I started to feel much better. It's amazing. I feel like I should still be walki... Read more

When I stepped on the scale this morning, I was hoping the number would be a little lower than it was. Although I was down, it was .8 pound, not the 1.5 I was aiming for. It's okay though. Here's the skinny-- I've lost an inch in my wais... Read more

473 miles of hiking trails in my back yard
Wednesday, July 07, 2010      3 comments

I've re-discovered my love of hiking. Running or walking in town about kills my feet. I know I won't be able to in the winter but for now I'm going out to the hills every chance I get. Hopefully 1-2 times a week. It's not far-about 20 minutes... Read more

I decided yesterday to take last night and today off from tracking; my intention is to make healthy choices. In my life there is always a twist. My almost 10 year old took on his first job, dogsitting for the neighbors. Trouble is, part... Read more
Dear Aunt Flo
Saturday, July 03, 2010      4 comments

Dear Aunt Flo, Here's the deal; I've been really motivated this week; I've only taken one day off from exercising and stayed within my calorie goals all week. You threw me off today when I stepped on the scale. Thanks for the bloating. ... Read more
