It's a matter of perspective
Saturday, December 04, 2010      4 comments

OK, in the interest of full disclosure I am going to admit that for the last two weeks the only thing I've done every day is log on, spin the wheel, and post my spin points. BUT that has at least kept my mind on SP. I have not tracked my food,... Read more

I've started exercising more, and Christmas is coming up quickly, which means time spent researching gifts and price shopping, so it seems I don't have a lot of time to post blogs. Plus, I'm trying to cook my meals more instead of buying out s... Read more
Happy 235th Birthday, Marines!
Wednesday, November 10, 2010      1 comments

First, I will say THANKS to ALL who have served. I appreciate every one of you! I am (a little) biased toward Marines. I was, after all, born on a Marine Corps base, in a Navy hospital, to a career Marine father, and am now married to a c... Read more

OK, so after realizing I was only 3 pounds from my midpoint, I decided I need to get more focused on walking every day and starting what exercise I can do without using my right shoulder too much. I think this is the second week in a row I've s... Read more

So, my hubby came home again last Tuesday, and left out on Thursday. It wasn't the evil twin this time, so I enjoyed having him home. And I stayed withing my ranges. I did much better this past week with staying in my ranges, and planning foo... Read more
On binging (not), cravings, and plateaus
Sunday, October 24, 2010      4 comments

So, my hubby came home last weekend, but it ended up being a diet challenge for me. Let me start by saying I love my husband, but he definitely can be a trial for me. I often say I’m married to two men. One is really a great guy, but the othe... Read more

and in a hurry. Went back to work this week after 7 weeks off, and what a "back to work" it has been! October is a VERY busy month for us, so I had to hit the ground running. I'm taking time out 3 days a week to go to physical therapy, so I ha... Read more
Getting back on track
Friday, September 24, 2010      1 comments

Now that dad's home, I'm beginning to get back on track. Literally, as in tracking food and water, etc. I bought a food scale and a digital bath scale so I can do it right. This morning was my first time weighing on the digital scale. I last w... Read more
Praise God for answered prayer!
Monday, September 20, 2010      4 comments

And thank you to all who took the time to pray! Dad's labs came back good! Although the tumor was lung cancer, there was no sign of cancer in the lymph nodes or the surrounding tissues. So he was categorized as Stage 1B (because the tumor... Read more

Dad came thru the surgery Friday with flying colors and is rapidly recovering/improving. We'll get the results on Mon/Tues to find out if the cancer got in the lymph system. Me - totally tuckered out. Not tracking, and eating hospital food... Read more

So I had the arthrogram yesterday (side note - OUCH!!!), and no, I did not re-tear my rotator cuff!! Big yea and a huge Thank You, God! Turns out I have a lot of fluid build-up all around the joint and below the deltoids, but no tears. I can d... Read more
alternative exercise
Thursday, September 09, 2010      2 comments

OK, so apparently struggling with a seat belt / driving / several trips back & forth between car and house, all with one arm strapped to one's side, counts as exercise. I can honestly say that right now a day that simply consists of showering, ... Read more

Found out last night my dad has a spot on his lung, and they are going to remove the upper left lobe in two weeks. They will also remove some lymph nodes to see if the cancer has moved into the lymph system (pray for a big NO!). CT scans detec... Read more

1 out of 2 ain't bad
Tuesday, August 31, 2010      2 comments

OK, so the ortho doc took x-rays to confirm the sutures (they looked like screws in the x-ray) weren't pulled out in my little "incident" at home. Big yea, although that was the less likely possibility. Still - yea! Stiches out - just fine. Now,... Read more
