Walking
Monday, September 10, 2012      1 comments

I was sick most of August (ragweed on top of a cold on top of summer pollution, joy!). Last week, I was finally able to walk the mile from the train to work again; I had to stop to let the pain in my hips die down at the 2/3 mark, but got up and... Read more
Sleep
Tuesday, July 31, 2012      1 comments

This month, I think the big thing I'm going to work on is getting enough sleep, which we all *know* is important, but sometimes slips through the cracks anyway. Consistent wakeup times are key (5:16 am!), and consistent SLEEP time would be ... Read more
One Week
Thursday, July 19, 2012      2 comments

Things I have learned in the last week: 1. I really miss my carpool. For the past Really Long Time, since I moved home after school, I've been riding with a lady, A, every day to work. I worked at the other end of her block when I started... Read more
Back from Beyond
Thursday, July 12, 2012      0 comments

So, it's been an odd six months inside my head. I discovered that it is physically impossible for me to ever be less than a size 10 without surgery (I have "those" hips), and that got me mad. I discovered Ragen Chastain, HAES/SA, and discovered ... Read more

So, I'm taking Synthroid. At 6:30am every day... sort of. Sometimes, I sleep through my alarm and miss it; sometimes, I'm running around so busy in the morning I don't make it. I also miss being able to sleep in. I'm having a problem with ... Read more
Oh, Internet, I missed you so...!
Friday, November 18, 2011      2 comments

Whouf!! Well, finally, there's internet again - and if I'd had any concerns that I couldn't function without it, they've been laid to rest. In a "OMG I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT MY CONNECTIVITY!!" sort of way. I'm spending today getting caug... Read more
Number Crunching.

Okay. So. I'm hitting a few stumbling blocks; some I knew were there, some are new. What I've learned is that I have a thing in my head that is good for One Day. If I know what I have to do in One Day, I can do it. It's gotten me walking again ... Read more
Re-booting!
Monday, October 31, 2011      1 comments

I've decided to make my SparkStreaks my "cattle prod" for this procedure. I want 100% on the things I'm tracking, which means I *have* to drink water, work out, and not eat in front of the TV (among other things). I'm hoping that keeping th... Read more
Listening to my body
Thursday, October 20, 2011      3 comments

So, I'm attempting to listen to my body, and how it feels after I eat certain things. Or anything, really. And the big thing I've discovered? I'm LOUSY at listening, and TERRIBLE at remembering what it told me in the first place!! Sigh... Read more
Crochet!

... and sometimes, I spend my time crocheting and/or knitting. This is the last crochet thing I finished. My hair looks shoulder-length, but it's actually long enou... Read more
CookBook!
Monday, October 17, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday, we wandered into the only remaining bookstore (!) in our town, and I got the SparkPeople Cookbook. Today, I joined the SparkPeople Cookbook Team (there is one!). My husband keeps talking about "getting the kitchen set up so we c... Read more
Noticing Changes
Saturday, October 15, 2011      5 comments

Well, it's almost a week in since my reboot. It's strange to be noticing what I'm eating again - and noticing just how badly I'd been letting myself eat! Not that I did well on the nutrition front (cheese fries and ice cream are not the best cho... Read more
Sigh.

So, you know how sometimes things happen - not necessarily Really Bad Things, but super annoying things that just happen and are frustrating and stuff? One of those things is happening at work. We're training to learn more detailed SEC file... Read more
Starting Over
Tuesday, October 11, 2011      2 comments

Okay, I hit my calories/nutrition yesterday, and managed to burn about half the calories I needed on the bike. Today, I'm watching my food again (like I always should!), and I'm going to try the bike again. I felt almost-ill-enough-t... Read more
