Back from Vacation
Monday, July 07, 2008      4 comments

We got back from our RV trip at 11pm on July3rd. I'm just now recovered enough to want to blog. Over the course of 16 days, we spent 14 in a camper. That thing was getting pretty small by the end. The music festival was great, but loud. ... Read more
20 bucks goes a long way
Saturday, June 14, 2008      1 comments

Well, Friday came and went, and we didn't hear anything about a job offer. Now I feel certain that if plans changed and the company decided not to go with Mark, they would have called the recruiter and said so. We've spoken with the recruiter ... Read more
Things are looking up
Wednesday, June 11, 2008      4 comments

I wanted to title this blog entry "Things are looking up, I guess", but I'm trying to stay positive, so I left off the last part. It's been a wild couple of days. We've gotten some closure on the last 2 job interviews. The job in Pennsylv... Read more
Scaling back
Monday, June 02, 2008      5 comments

This summer could be a tough one, or not. My DH is in Pennsylvania today for a job interview...and he'll drive to Cincinnati tomorrow for an interview with another company. If he gets either one of these jobs, it means a move. If he doesn't i... Read more
His Grace is Enough for Me
Friday, May 16, 2008      4 comments

My stress has been through the roof lately. The other night, I had insomnia that lasted 2.5 hours. I haven't done that in over 6 months. My panic attacks are rearing their ugly heads in the form of shortness of breath. But this doesn't come ... Read more
On to plan B,C,D,E,F, and G
Monday, May 12, 2008      1 comments

If at first you don't succeed... try, try again. If plan A doesn't work ( and it's not going all that well right now) then move on to another plan. Cookies are not a nutrition powerhouse food, Rebecca. I don't care if they are organic.... Read more
Bring on the gum, I'm stressed
Tuesday, May 06, 2008      2 comments

I've read that chewing gum can take the place of emotional eating. Well, that's something I'm gonna have to try because it doesn't look like the emotional eating is gonna slow down for me any time soon. My DH has been out of work since Jan... Read more
Settling into maintenance (again)
Thursday, May 01, 2008      2 comments

I've taken the month of April to decide on my maintenance range. When I started SP I weighed 135. Over 5 months I lost weight to reach my goal of 120. Without changing anything, I continued to lose and got all the way down to 116. Then I we... Read more
Time to get down the bike.
Wednesday, April 23, 2008      4 comments

Today, my DH got all the bikes down from their overhead storage in the garage. We all got brand new odometer/speedometers to put on the bikes. They're a fun tool to have when you're riding. Remember when, as a kid, you didn't ride bikes t... Read more
Thank You, Turtles....and frogs
Wednesday, April 16, 2008      1 comments

I just wanted to thank everyone on my Rheumatoid Arthritis Turtle challenge team. You ladies keep me going when I want to slide into old habits, take a day without exercise or just stop. My points haven't always been the best because of decisi... Read more
I want to be a runner.
Thursday, April 10, 2008      2 comments

I'll never forget the day my podiatrist told me to get off the treadmill. I had neuromas in both feet and I was not to walk, run or do any impact exercises. I was to wear only running shoes ( for cushion) for the next 4 months, even to church... Read more
Don't swim with strangers
Monday, April 07, 2008      4 comments

When I entered the pool today for my lap swim there were only 2 other people swimming. That left 3 lanes empty after I got in. After I swam about 15 minutes and I'm nearing the end of my lane, I notice this man about my age standing in my lane... Read more
One MILE - 46:20
Friday, April 04, 2008      3 comments

Today I swam a mile in 46 minutes and 20 seconds. I've never swam longer than 35 minutes, so it's a new personal best. My goal was to swim 40 minutes, but when I was almost done I realized that I only had 4 laps to go. There was no way I w... Read more
Lookout emotional eating...I'm on to you.
Wednesday, April 02, 2008      2 comments

I'm so proud of myself. We have a plumbing issue, and this morning the plumber called and announced that he'd be there in 30 minutes (it was 8am). " Is everyone up?", he asked. Not in a tone wanting to know if it was ok, but in a tone that ju... Read more
April Goals
Tuesday, April 01, 2008      2 comments

I want to put my goals for the month of April in written form so I'll be more accountable. 1. Exercise: Cardio 5x week and ST 2x week. I'm doing this little self experiment to see if cardio 5 times will actually help control my stress. I ... Read more
