Breakfast

So today I didn't eat breakfast before work. This is actually really rare for me. Well, I had a glass of milk. But my guinea pig has been sick, and so we had to walk to the library to use the Internet to order probiotics for her. Then... Read more
The Visit

My mom is visiting for a month or more. Her visits really trigger me. She is so strict about eating healthy food that it usually triggers me in the opposite direction as soon as she is gone. This visit is going much better. I think it is be... Read more

I spent all Labor Day weekend working out- I canoed, and I swam, and I walked, and I took pictures of herons and egrets and geese. It was completely lovely. I did at least 12 hours of exercise. I am proud of myself!... Read more

I spoke too early about how well I was doing. My tinnitus jumped into hypermode of awfulness. That is how I gained all this weight, overeating to try to cope with the pain. Luckily, I had a quilt planned out in my head and the fabric to m... Read more
Keeping on!
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      3 comments

I am doing pretty well, I think. I ate more than usual yesterday, but I was hungry, and I managed to stop eating once I felt satisfied. I think it's okay, especially as I had quite a few days where my calories were on the lower side. I have... Read more
Energy!

I felt really energetic today! It was great. Instead of sitting around at work, being bored during a slow period, I got up and shelved book for over four hours. That has to count as exercise at least a little bit! Woo hoo!... Read more

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I know I am going to have a very healthy Thanksgiving. We are going to have a relatively small meal with only healthy dishes. My biggest worry is carsickness, and I got some ginger candy to help with that! ... Read more

Today is my birthday. I don't really celebrate it. I haven't for a long time. But it is certainly a time to think about how I am doing. Especially because my fifth Sparkiversary is in two more days. I don't even have to look that up. I... Read more
Sunshine

My doctor is really freaked out about my levels of Vitamin D. Even supplements haven't gotten the level up to where they need to be, so she is starting me on prescription Vitamin D. Clearly my sense of humor is malfunctioning as well, because ... Read more
The Simple Things

I decided to go on a walk before work this morning. A bike ride would have burned more calories, but I just wanted to walk and enjoy the outdoors. On my way out, I saw a neighbor hauling bags of yard waste to the curb, and told him that my mom w... Read more
