I have been off of work for this past week. I am not ready to go back, but I need to get a couple of things done that require my presence. I need an overhaul. There are good things in my life, my job among them, but I am overfat, overtired, and ... Read more
A moment with Jorge
I needed to pick up a few groceries for hubby. He is still sidelined by his broken leg injury, but may be back on his feet a bit as soon as next week.
I went to the store and rode in one of their motorized carts as I am still working towar... Read more
It's been a long and winding road to learn that my leg pain may be caused by sciatica. I am grateful for the diagnosis because the uncertainty has been lingering for years. I've changed doctors 3 times (not because of this really) and I am getti... Read more
In recognition of the new insights I am gaining about myself and my lifestyle, I decided I am eating too much. Last night when I ordered something from the drive through (no guilt because it is just what I need to do right now), I asked for the ... Read more
Freeing Your Soul
I am a very non-sequitur thinker. To me, it makes perfect sense how one thing leads to the other, but to the untrained eye - no one knows how I got here. I had a huge epiphany this morning when I was in the shower.
All of my self doubt, al... Read more
I am big believer in TGIF - but I am adding Thank You God For Friday!
Friday lifts my spirits because yes, I get to be off work and have a couple of days off, but I have been spreading the cheer on Friday's for many years. Woo hoo It's Frid... Read more
Make Time for Yourself
You've got to make time for yourself.
It takes time to make time. Sounds weird, I know, but I literally have to find the time to carve out for myself and recognize it is absolutely required for me to do that. Playing the back burner game d... Read more
Time Stops for No One
Time is flying by - more quickly than I would like. We're approaching the halfway point in the year and I feel "way behind" in where I had hoped to be at this point. There are reasons upon reasons, which boil down to a lot of excuses for me. Thi... Read more
A Shift in Perspective
For a lot of today, all I could focus on was how much my legs hurt today. The weather could be a factor, as we have been getting a lot of rain lately. I did walk a few steps today without my cane, but for a lot of the day, I struggled, and insid... Read more
There's Something Happening Here
There is something happening. I am changing. I fell into a vat of acceptance in my life and just let the status quo be good enough. The status quo has been me barely getting around, walking with a cane most of the time, limiting where I go. Not ... Read more
one step ahead
My health coach (a perk from work) encouraged me to have 1 vegetable at lunch and one at dinner to help me to kickstart myself to eating more vegetable. I nuked up some carrots tonight and bagged them up to take along with my lunch tomorrow.

A lot of my friends are posting what their "word" is for 2018. I chose one also: Miracles - but upon further introspection, I don't want just one word: I want a whole alphabet.
E-En... Read more
No Time Like the Present
I've been away from here for a while, but many of you have been in my thoughts. I am taking stock of myself and see what I need to do to be healthier in 2018. It's been quite some time since I really set New Year's resolutions... Read more
One Day at a time
Gearing up - ready for the week ahead. I have food I can take to work. I have weaned myself off of stopping to Dunkin Donuts every day, and my fitbit is charging.
I am happy with my progress and I am doing it one day at time.... Read more

Making changes and getting payoffs
On my "authorized" (set by me) weigh-in day, I had a ready mindset. Good, bad or indifferent, show me scale, how this week's eating has panned out. Am I on the right track?
A resounding YES! I lost 3.8 lbs since I weighed in last Saturday... Read more
