Bad weather blahs
Friday, February 23, 2018      6 comments

I'm doing my best to make sure to keep moving today. Been snowing overnight and throughout the day as well. That always makes me hurt. When you hurt, it doesn't seem to matter how well intentioned you were to do something, or what NEEDS to be do... Read more
Where's the magnesium?
Friday, February 09, 2018      0 comments

So, I've known for a long while I needed to take a magnesium supplement when I was eating right for my body. I'm gluten intolerant and allergic to nuts. Both pretty good sources of magnesium! So, I decided to stop by the pharmacy and grab me a... Read more
Magnesium
Monday, January 13, 2014      1 comments

Wow, I forgot how bad my magnesium intake is. Namely, it's zero! So, started taking my magnesium pills again. Spent a few hours today cleaning my bedroom. Counted that as my exercise so that I wouldn't be too sore for work tomorrow. This'll... Read more
Belated Birthday Dinner
Saturday, January 11, 2014      4 comments

Today my parents took the BF and I out for a belated birthday dinner. Well, belated for me but today is my dads birthday. We ended up going to a really good steak house, Ruby River. I was thinking that I was going to be millions of calories... Read more
First day of exercise.
Friday, January 10, 2014      0 comments

Well, I just did my first deliberate exercising almost since I was last active on Sparkpeople. It was the 11 min cardio chair exercise. Good news: I'm not nearly as out of shape now than I was when I initially started in 2012. My breath and... Read more
I'm back!
Thursday, January 09, 2014      4 comments

I hadn't realized how long it had been since I had been on here. I kept thinking "It's only been a little while." and "I'm doing okay with my eating." But guess what! Nope, no I haven't been. Of course you don't when you don't journal. You ... Read more
Oh, ouch.

I went way over my calories yesterday. Was doing well, until I stopped at Arby's and decided to try their Peppermint Swirl Shake thingy. It was super delicious!! But not sure it was worth the calories. A medium is over 600 calories! Ouch! I aske... Read more
Worst. Blogger. Ever.
Wednesday, November 28, 2012      4 comments

I have trouble blogging. It's not something I particularly enjoy. I don't keep a journal at home either. So, I feel guilty when I don't post for a while but then I remind myself that this is for me. There is no obligation and it's something to d... Read more
Thanksgiving.
Friday, November 23, 2012      2 comments

So, I maybe was a little too careful with what I ate yesterday for Thanksgiving because it ends up that I was 331-600something below my calorie goal. I didn't enter in all my food until this morning and thought I had had enough to eat. I think t... Read more
Baconater!!!
Wednesday, November 21, 2012      2 comments

I really want a Baconater right now!! But is it worth the 600 or so calories and the whole days worth of sodium? Ask me right now when I am hungry and I say yes. Quick! To the freezer. Grab me a GF burrito and a salad. Ask me after I eat and I m... Read more
Woopsy
Monday, November 19, 2012      3 comments

So, didn't realize it had been four days since I blogged last. I kept telling myself 'Oh, I should put that in my blog' and then just never did. Well, to start off with, I am down 3 pounds so far. I have to admit that it feels good to keep... Read more
Work fitness.....
Thursday, November 15, 2012      1 comments

So I have decided that work is fitness!! I worked 8 full hours today and I tell you what!!! There is no way that sitting and standing and sitting and walking and standing and bending and walking and sitting and etc...... is not exercise. I just... Read more
Exercise
Wednesday, November 14, 2012      0 comments

So, per suggestion from SENIMMO, I checked out the sitting workout videos featuring Coach Nicole. Perfect! I got twenty minutes of weight lifting and cardio and felt almost no pain in my leg. I want to make it more than 20, but for right now thi... Read more
Phew.
Tuesday, November 13, 2012      4 comments

So, the pain is still here. I didn't get to do any exercise, unless you count grocery shopping. That is me hobbling along while leaning on a shopping cart. It was also only 15 mins. Sometimes this is the most I can do to push myself. Yes, t... Read more
Hi all!
Monday, November 12, 2012      2 comments

I didn't expect people to read my blogs lol! I suppose I should give a bit of background as to why I don't use my legs to exercise much and other things about me. Back in 2008, I was hit by a drunk driver who had pulled a u-turn on the fre... Read more
