It's a Thing
Monday, April 09, 2018      3 comments

I'm somewhat back where I was in the summer of 2016 -- meaning, I'm scheduled for hip replacement surgery on June 6th. I'm about 12 lbs over the lowest I was in '16 too, not bad, but definitely uncomfortable. But I'm okay with it. My w... Read more

I love SparkPeople, I really do; I've been on here forever, not having reached my goals, but I'm ok with that *for the moment.* (It's a topic for a another discussion.) I had the SparkPeople app on my phone for a while, but I also have Fitb... Read more
Welcome to Monday

I got my exercise in this morning -- not mall walking, mall wheeling -- two laps, thirty minutes, and I've met my (very) modest steps goal for the day. That makes 3 consecutive days --- and it's hard to do. I used to do it with no pr... Read more

These days, I'm back to using my wheelchair to get around if there's any walking beyond short distances. I used to use it in 2016 when my right hip got really bad before it was surgically replaced.Now my left hip is bad, and I have an appointmen... Read more
Shoes
Friday, January 05, 2018      0 comments

Sometimes I look at my life by the shoes I have stacked in my bedroom. I've been living in sneakers for months, but I also wear slip-on casuals, or hiking boots. Today is the first day I've worn my hiking boots in months, and it's fitting b... Read more
Post Vacation
Thursday, September 21, 2017      1 comments

I had to have my travel agent cancel my cruise -- the cruise line didn't cancel it, they only postponed it from Saturday to Tuesday, with a stop in Cozumel instead of the Caribbean. Because they postponed it, and we canceled, they only gave... Read more
Anxiety
Tuesday, September 05, 2017      3 comments

I am an anxious mess. I hide it well, but I can feel it. It's like what it would feel like to put your hand into an empty can and have somebody dump earthworms into it. Two years ago, after my not-so-celebrated melt down, my psychiatri... Read more
Grown-up 101
Saturday, September 02, 2017      1 comments

I don't like Grown-up 101, but I can't drop this class, and I don't seem to be ready to graduate from it either. You know, the daily "off to work," followed by "Yay! Weekend," during which there's grocery shopping, errands, laundry.... fore... Read more
Every Little Thing
Friday, September 01, 2017      2 comments

Having some OCD tendencies, I try not to not sweat the small stuff, although in my job, I have to pay attention to details. Even so, everyday I learn a little more about how to shrug my shoulders and let it go: I can't fix everything, I can't ju... Read more
It's Thursday
Thursday, August 31, 2017      3 comments

one of my goals in reclaiming my body and spirit is to blog. I intend to go back and re-read my old entries; perhaps I can see where I veered off path. But, today is Thursday. In a week, my guy Misha and I will hop into the car and drive to... Read more
Well, Here I am
Wednesday, August 30, 2017      3 comments

I've been away from SparkPeople for too long a time and I've let myself go. From a low of 219#, I let myself gain 30 back, and oh my goodness, I feel every pound of it. I am one year in with my replacement hip, for which I am eternall... Read more

October, and the Changes It Brings
Thursday, October 06, 2016      3 comments

I feel like I've fallen off the face of the world, because I haven't been logging on to SparkPeople. I've been busy, I've been mending. I've been ... redefining... myself. On August 30th, I had total hip replacement surgery on my right side... Read more
The Big Four-Oh
Sunday, January 10, 2016      1 comments

No, I haven't turned 40 again -- in fact, in March, I will see 53 -- but I have given up 40 pounds since the end of July. And, truthfully, I'm... Read more
Focusing on What Matters
Sunday, January 03, 2016      3 comments

I understand "epiphany." When I got sick in July, I was existing: stressed, eating for sedation, disconnected (again) from the essence of *me.*... Read more
