Bet you never thought you'd see those words together emoticon I got the second opinion from a breast cancer p... Read more
First Treatment
Wednesday, December 28, 2011      1 comments

Had my first radiation treatment today - it wasn't bad at all (I hear it gets rough after a few weeks as the dosage accumulates...). I got my tattoos yesterday (they are there to help the techs line up the treatment site correctly each day). ... Read more
A good day...
Monday, December 19, 2011      2 comments

Today I worked a couple of hours, went to get my CT scan so they can do all the math & physics to set up my radiation treatments, broke for lunch with some friends at Nezuntos (yummy food!), then back to the hospital to talk to another doctor ab... Read more
Back to running this week
Wednesday, December 14, 2011      2 comments

Did a mile on Sunday, 2 miles on Monday and 2 miles today - all pretty slow, but I haven't run since before my surgery and even the best jog bra doesn't stop "motion" completely, and the incision is still a little sensitive - and REALLY itchy! A... Read more
Nothing much going on today...

I do keep wondering if I'm in denial - but I think I'm just relieved that the "bad news" wasn't all that bad (relatively speaking ... Read more

My radiation oncologist IS covered by my insurance plan. I got his name late Friday, and looked him up on the ins. website and his name didn't come up in their list of participating docs! And it was too late to call to talk to someone by the tim... Read more
Well, this sucks...

but it could be worse - a lot worse! I've been kind of MIA in a while, and here's why. I had a mammogram in September, and there was a suspicious area, so I had more testing done. The needle biopsy showed no cancer but some suspicious cell... Read more
Need More Carbs
Monday, October 17, 2011      3 comments

Looking at what I have tracked over a few years, I notice that I often go over my fat allocation, but barely hit my carbs. Part of the issue with carbs is that my hubby is wheat-intolerant, so I just don't eat much bread or cereal anymore. Anyho... Read more
Tracking what I didn't eat...
Thursday, September 29, 2011      2 comments

I liked 4ahealthybmi's idea about two trackers - one for food that you do eat and one for food that you say "no!" to so I started my "said no!" tracker today. Not much in the way of temptation today, but I did resist pouring myself a big bowl of... Read more
Power Song!
Wednesday, June 08, 2011      1 comments

I've had my Nike+iPod gadget for a while but I had never picked a "power song" (a song that you can have play whenever you hit the "power song" button - ideally one that will give you some "oomph"...). I've just used upbeat playlists - lots of 8... Read more
A Season of Firsts

DD and I rode in our first horse show today, the SRA show at the farm where we board. Attendance was low, but that meant we won ribbons in every class we entered - YAY US! We also met a friend of a friend of mine from work, who I've heard s... Read more
Greater Binghamton Bridge Run 5K
Tuesday, May 17, 2011      3 comments

This was my first 5K and I really wasn't sure what to expect - and I forgot to check-in with the BAL group beforehand to see who would be there, so I missed meeting everyone ! ... Read more
I Reset my goals
Wednesday, November 17, 2010      4 comments

On Monday I reset my Spark goals - I have been on Sparkpeople for 3 or 4 years now and never restarted anything, but tracked inconsistently at best. It feels good to have a fresh sheet of paper in front of me, and no missed opportunities behind ... Read more

School Daze...
Thursday, September 09, 2010      4 comments

Siobhan didn't do as well as I hoped - she's at a different school than she went to for kindergarten, and the school day starts an hour later. So she woke up early, rarin' to go, and then had to wait, and wait, and wait.... and she got all nervo... Read more
