Lots Going On
Monday, September 30, 2019      6 comments

I've been on the food roller coaster for too long. Some days, eating wisely; some days, not. Pulling myself out of a depression. I am aware that it wouldn't take much to slide back into it, but keeping busy helps! So does exercise, but I am... Read more

Saturday, July 27, 2019      6 comments

I have not been on SparkPeople much except to get credit for the daily log in. It has been busy. Today is the 27th. My step streak was broken. One day, I couldn't find my Fitbit charger and mentally counted my steps until about mid afternoo... Read more

This morning, I had emails telling me that I had new comments on my Sparkpage. They were kind notes congratulating me for being chosen as the Emotional Eating team member of the week. The team page said I was nominated because I have been doin... Read more
A Week is a Microcosm for Life
Monday, June 17, 2019      3 comments

A friend unkindly commented that I often post sad comments on Facebook, so I have stopped. The posts are often my way to remember someone who's died - their birthday or whatever, I will try not to replicate that here, but, this week is a doozy... Read more
Fathers Day
Sunday, June 16, 2019      2 comments

Fathers Day is sometimes a tough day. Dad has been gone for 14 Fathers Days and my stepfather #1 has not been in my life since 1971. (I grew up in his house). My sort of stepfather #2 lives with me since my beloved stepmother died. I bought ... Read more
Transparency = Not a Fun Blog to Write
Saturday, June 15, 2019      7 comments

I've been avoiding some truths lately. Avoiding the scale, the mirror and my newly purchased-two-sizes-smaller clothes. I've been promising myself that "tomorrow", I will get back on track. "Tomorrow" has been slow in coming. I've decid... Read more
Still not back on track
Friday, June 14, 2019      3 comments

Motivation is weak. Interest has waned. But I know I don't want to go backwards. I must, I must, I must get moving downward (in weight) I must get moving to lose the inches... Read more
Cholesterol a bit high
Wednesday, June 12, 2019      6 comments

Routine blood test Monday. Results called today. My cholesterol is a bit high. Since I no longer eat dairy (but I loved cheese!), it's probably coconut milk and not enough exercise. Coconut milk in my coffee since I can't handle bovine milk.... Read more
Two Inches
Saturday, June 01, 2019      7 comments

I had my routine physical this week which included a gender-specific exam that I really hate. But, I did it just because a) it's preventative and it would be ridiculous to skip that just because I don't like it b) I set an example for the young... Read more

Saturday, March 30, 2019      3 comments

For almost two weeks, earlier in the month, I jumped off my approved eating plan. Some of that was planned, some was not. I was starting to feel a bit desperate. I'm going on a business trip to our California office the week of May 5 and I re... Read more
Rededicated
Sunday, March 24, 2019      6 comments

I avoided the scale for the last week or so. I used my birthday and St. Patrick's Day and other food events as an excuse for not being disciplined. I was not surprised to see that I gained over 7 pounds in just under 3 weeks. Bleh... I d... Read more
New Scale Thoughts
Sunday, February 03, 2019      6 comments

My employer has a new health benefit where I qualified for a free glass scale and an online program to track weight and food and such. The software says by weight and height that I am pre-diabetic, though no blood test has said so. The scale a... Read more
Aweful vs Awful and a Disappointing Number on the Scale
Saturday, January 19, 2019      2 comments

I saw, as I typed my status yesterday, that I had misspelled a word. That is not like me at all. I decided to leave it as it was as a reminder to myself. "Aweful" should have been "awful". That speaks volumes about how this cold impact my ab... Read more

Sunday, January 06, 2019      3 comments

I've started working on functional fitness. Feels good! Now, let's see if I can be consistent... I have to write a feedback statement as part of a coworker's 2018 performance review. I am struggling with it because she is not, as they say, c... Read more
