...since the last time I updated here. Last Monday, I saw a number on the scale that alarmed me. Four pounds above my "red alert!" number. I have been doing a ton of strength training, so hopefully there's some muscle weight there, but still. No... Read more
Whose pants are these??
Saturday, August 23, 2014      7 comments

We're in the process of moving, going through all our stuff that's in storage, and deciding what will be moved into the new house (yay!). I happened across a pair of size 20 corduroys. Yes, they were mine not so long ago. Not even close to ... Read more

Such a good dog you have been. We will miss you. Say hi to Victor and to my Casey-cat when you cross the rainbow bridge, sweet girl.... Read more
Back in the swing
Sunday, August 03, 2014      5 comments

Lots of change, sadness, chaos in our lives right now, but also some hope for the future. I really hope that this week we'll be on the path to closing on the house we're trying to buy. Lots of issues that needed to be resolved, but it's looking ... Read more
Sad day
Saturday, August 02, 2014      10 comments

We had a very sad day yesterday. Spent all day at various vets with my mom-in-law's aging dog. She's had a bit of a cough, so we took her to see what was up. Turns out that she has extensive cancer and won't live long. The vet said days or, at t... Read more
Too tired for a real post
Monday, June 02, 2014      5 comments

Just got home from our grueling, exhausting trip to Florida. It's been a rough year, and so far no end in sight. I don't really have energy to post, but just wanted to wave hello to everyone. I didn't Spark or track the whole time I was gon... Read more
Cruelty and Eating Animals
Wednesday, May 07, 2014      1 comments

One of my very good friends made a snarky post on Twitter today about a young, idealistic woman who had handed her an anti-cruelty pamphlet about meat production, and how she (my friend) walked past the girl (unapologetically) with her bacon-and... Read more
Trying to win $10K for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
Thursday, May 01, 2014      3 comments

A while back, I posted a blog entry called "Gratitude… for the three guys who saved my life." In it, I told the story of my journey back to health from crippling, constant pain and a totally sedentary existence. My gym, Anytime Fitness, is ... Read more
Oh, my gosh, I actually did that!

Just got back from two hours at the ICE SKATING RINK. And I am all smiles! That was *so fun.* I lived in Florida all my life, and the only ice skating I ever did was an hour or two at the mall skating rink, well over thirty years ago. But t... Read more

Ephemeral Comfort vs. Lasting Health
Thursday, April 24, 2014      5 comments

Sugar and I have broken up after a lifelong abusive relationship. Occasionally, I still say hi, but for the most part we've gone our separate ways. No cookies come into my house. No ice cream, either. I don't put sugar in my coffee, don't buy ca... Read more
Update from the ear/nose/throat doc
Wednesday, April 23, 2014      2 comments

Had my hearing/tinnitus problems checked out this morning. As I'd kind of guessed, I did perforate my ear drum three years ago, and it's the scar tissue that's causing the mild hearing loss. Doc seems to think the tinnitus is unrelated, or perha... Read more
Too many supplements!
Saturday, April 19, 2014      4 comments

I've been taking supplements religiously for the last year. When I went on Lupron Depot in September, I doubled up on my Calcium/Vitamin D (to help against the bone loss many experience while taking that drug. I also live in Seattle, where Vitam... Read more
Tattoo appointment!
Tuesday, April 15, 2014      6 comments

Super excited. I have an appointment to get my first (small) tattoo on April 30th. If all goes well, we'll start on a large piece soon after. Big step! I can't wait. I have a feeling I'm going to end up covered in ink. I can't believe I've waite... Read more
The down side of not drinking
Saturday, April 12, 2014      7 comments

The last couple years, and the last 6 months in particular, have been progressively more and more stressful. I'm starting to have some more health problems because of the stress. Alcohol, of course, doesn't help, so I've been making a concerted ... Read more
