Setbacks and motivation
Thursday, May 03, 2018      3 comments

It's been a while since I've reported in but I'm doing pretty well. Late last summer I had a workout injury -- a torn meniscus from trying to follow along with a whippersnapper yoga teacher instead of going at my own pace and listening to my bod... Read more
So what happened?
Wednesday, December 16, 2015      5 comments

Okay, first of all what's done is done. I'm not going to start tomorrow, I'm starting right now. Secondly, I'm not upset. There's no point. I do want to think about why it happened, because I'm analytical that way and it's how I learn from mista... Read more
Conversations with myself
Thursday, November 19, 2015      4 comments

I have an inner five-year-old. She can be a lot of fun. She wants to have fun, she wants to play, she likes to have a good time, and lordy, can she whine. I realized what was happening last Tuesday. It was gloomy. It really does affect my mood q... Read more
Checking in - doing great!

Diabetes is the best thing that ever happened to me. It's been a challenging week or two food-wise just because some folks at the office have been bringing in cookies and other goodies and putting them on the counter. I work in the main off... Read more
I feel like (insert word of your choice) today
Saturday, October 03, 2015      4 comments

Good grief, welcome Fall. Does it have to be so gloomy though? I feel like I've seen the sun maybe twice in the past two weeks. This is not a complaint post though, promise. Stay with me here. It is cold. It is dark. It is rainy. I have a l... Read more
I walked through a minefield and made it out alive ;-)
Saturday, September 19, 2015      5 comments

So tonight I went to the York Fair. I've been looking forward to this for months, and by that I mean it was planned before I was diagnosed with diabetes in July. Part of the fun of going is sampling the food but I was determined to find good cho... Read more
Diabetes is one of the best things to happen to me
Friday, September 11, 2015      4 comments

I am still trying to find my way, but I do honestly think that diabetes is one of the best things to happen to me, health-wise. Why would I say that? Because the numbers don't lie when I test my blood. It's easy to sometimes convince myself that... Read more
I am TIRED
Tuesday, August 11, 2015      6 comments

Ugh. My friends, this waking up early is for the birds. For. The. Birds. After two weeks of it, I am wiped out. Yes, I am getting 8 hours of sleep but it is not working with my natural rhythm. I am ready to drop most of the time and I just don't... Read more
Week a success and new goal
Sunday, August 02, 2015      5 comments

I did, in fact, get up early to workout last week. I met my goal of 3 times or more and after analyzing my Spark Tracker info, I'm ready to set a new goal for this week. I also need to work on my list of incentives. My incentive for last week wa... Read more
Up and at 'em!

Soo... I'm not a morning person. Never have been. Some folks wake up in the morning and bounce out of bed, cheerfully singing and chattering. Perhaps some of my problem is that I am a super creative and I have a very colorful and active dream li... Read more
Wow, it's been a crazy year.
Thursday, July 23, 2015      7 comments

I could be annoyed with myself for not checking in regularly for awhile, or I could be proud of myself for getting back on the horse a lot sooner than I have done in the past. I choose the latter. My updates from the past several months - ... Read more
Mission Accomplished!
Tuesday, May 12, 2015      3 comments

I had a great week last week! I may have run off the rails a bit when life threw a wrench in the works, but I'm back and most importantly I'm back much sooner than I have done in the past. This week I started tracking food again. It's like... Read more
Yay for the sun!
Monday, May 04, 2015      3 comments

So somewhere in the vicinity of a day or two after my "bouncing back" post, I apparently had a backwards bounce to a place that was very dark. Very dark indeed. Let's just say I'm glad to be alive. It is official: I feel human again. The su... Read more
Bouncing Back
Sunday, March 15, 2015      2 comments

First of all, many many thanks to everyone for their kind words and support. I am not out of the woods yet, but I have my resolve back and that's a good thing. While I have this positive little pocket of time I am doing everything I can to plan ... Read more
Hanging on
Wednesday, February 25, 2015      3 comments

Last Wednesday, my grandfather died. All the family high-drama I missed out on when I went away for the Christmas holidays will now be mine on Friday when I go up to the old home state for the funeral. In addition, I miss my dearly departe... Read more
