I have to qualify my thoughts regarding the girl who did not show up to work for two days. The only excuse that I find acceptable is unforeseen circumstances that keep you from being able to call in. Turns out this girl slipped on the ice and ... Read more
Not letting it get me down

Seems that every time I resolve to be more proactive in losing weight, something happens. I usually end up working more, having worse hot flashes, and/or getting sick. This time it's all three. Sunday was my first Sunday off in 3 we... Read more
How important is SparkPeople to your weight loss?

I'm finding that out.... apparently my computer was having trouble connecting to the food tracker last night. I wasn't able to log my calories for the day, so I went overboard in eating last night. For me logging the calories is what kee... Read more
Does Work Count as Exercise?
Thursday, February 06, 2014      6 comments

I've started doing my stretches and crunches again each morning. I've tried to add cardio in the evenings after work. So far I've only succeeded 2 out of 4 times. At work I'm on my feet on a concrete floor for 8 hours per day. I walk all... Read more

Okay, I've lived in Texas for 10 years. I've seen the DFW area, Austin, and San Antonio. Not much to show for 10 years. Of course, I've been blessed beyond measure to have gone to Israel 3 years ago, and have been back to CA 3x; the last ti... Read more
Making today count

Today was my day off from work. I did my stretches, 100 crunches, added some arm exercises, and then went walking in the mall. When I got home I put my trampoline in the living room and spent some time walking on that. I tracked eve... Read more
Insane work schedule--just had to write it out
Thursday, January 30, 2014      3 comments

This past "week" has been nuts! I worked 8 days in a row. Monday was my 8th day and I was dragging. About half way through the day my boss hands me a print out of an email. This email was dated Jan 10th and it said that all Head Photo T... Read more

Interesting is all I can say. I thought I had gained a ton of weight back over the last couple of months. I have gained, but only 5lbs since my last visit. She said this is normal during the holidays. My blood pressure is still high.... Read more
The Nighttime Snacking Monster
Tuesday, January 14, 2014      9 comments

is my worst enemy... I know some people eat for emotional reasons, some people are addicted to certain foods, I probably have both these issues, but I think that the main one for me is that snacking in front of the "tv" (I watch old tv shows o... Read more
Moving Forward
Wednesday, January 01, 2014      3 comments

Okay, brutally honest here...for most of the last 3 months I have not followed my doctor's diet plan, have not taken the supplements, have eaten everything in sight, and have not exercised. So, of course, the results are that I have gained a lo... Read more
Goals and Me
Monday, November 04, 2013      5 comments

What I'm finding is that what works best for me is to have short term, tangible goals. Long term general goals of eating better, being healthy, etc. are great, but not very motivating for me. I need specifics. So, I decided that I really ... Read more
A Walk in The Park
Thursday, October 24, 2013      6 comments

It's amazing what a walk in the park will do for your day! The doctor told me to go for a 30 minute walk every day...not necessarily for the exercise but to ease the stress. So, I got up early and went to the Carrollton greenbelt this mor... Read more

My boss at Walgreens has been treating me like crap since I asked for the days off in November to be able to attend the conference. I have to have an answer from him soon, although I really don't want to be anywhere near him right now. My ... Read more

today was my monthly check in with the doctor... I have not gained or lost in the last month. My blood pressure is still high. His suggestions: 1) walk 30 minutes a day--or at least several times a week to reduce stress 2) take... Read more
New sparkpeople home page
Monday, October 21, 2013      10 comments

Okay, personally I do NOT like it. I wish that we could choose to use the old one. I should clarify...I don't mind the new sparkpeople home page until it gets to the articles! It's terribly annoying and overwhelming to have all those link... Read more
