FINALLY exercising again!
Sunday, May 09, 2010      1 comments

FINALLY got out for a walk this morning...40 minutes, but tried to keep it down a walk rather than a power walk - hard, because I tend to fall into a certain rhythm once I get started! But I don't want to overdo and relapse again. I can't beli... Read more
Slowly but Surely
Friday, May 07, 2010      2 comments

Well, slowly but surely, I'm starting to get back to normal...still awfully tired, but walking a few blocks or staying on my feet for a while is no longer gassing me, which is nice. I finally connected with my doc's office a little while ago an... Read more

Thursday, May 06, 2010      2 comments

Well, complained to my doc Tuesday about how crappy I was still feeling, and she had me go in for labwork yesterday. Yesterday morning I not only fell back to sleep after the alarm went off - which I NEVER do - but Paul had to wake me up an hou... Read more
Good News, Bad News
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      3 comments

Well, the bad news is that this bug is still keeping me down - I managed to get up and do a half hour walk (not a power walk) yesterday morning, but I just couldn't do it today. This energy level thing is killing me - after cleaning up the kitc... Read more
Easing Back Into It
Sunday, May 02, 2010      1 comments

Well, finally feeling better, though my energy level still isn't great. I was desperate to get out of the house yesterday morning after four days of being holed up, so I grabbed the kid and the dog and walked over to the start line for the Arth... Read more
Still Sick :-p
Thursday, April 29, 2010      1 comments

Well, still feeling pretty crappy...went to the doc today to beg for drugs, but the strep test came out negative so no go on the antibiotics. Just a basic nasty virus, gotta keep resting and riding it out. So much for my seeing Ir... Read more

Well, I've been fighting something for a week or two, finally hit yesterday and I'm still feeling crappy today. Just really tired, generally achy, and a bit of congestion and sore throat. The throat makes me nervous becuase I know strep is goi... Read more
What HAS Changed, Even if the Weight Hasn't
Monday, April 26, 2010      2 comments

Okay, so my new friend ALIMESSA posted a great blog on what progress she has made, to counteract frustration at the scale not moving. Since I'm at that same exact frustration point, I thought maybe I should do the same. Here goes: I'm sna... Read more
The Pictorial Story of Our New Veggie/Herb Beds
Sunday, April 25, 2010      1 comments

We recently cleared out the back part of the dog run, had our contractor install another gate to section it off, and built two raised beds - one for vegetables and one for herbs. I'm happy to say that almost everything we planted is thriving so... Read more
Why Do I Even Bother Getting on the Scale
Sunday, April 25, 2010      3 comments

Finally braved the scale after laying off for a while...23 days, to be exact, according to Wii Fit. I got on full of hope - I've really stepped up the intensity of my workouts, my pants have been feeling a tad looser, and I was fairly confident... Read more

I stopped by one of my favorite little spots on my way back from lunch to grab a diet coke, and when I walked in I thought hmmm, a cookie sounds sooooo good right now! But lo and behold, they were out. Karma continues to take care of me!!! ... Read more
