Today starts day 4 of the Atkins induction phase. Down 7lbs! Praising God! However, I'm terribly fatigued. Just moving feels like I'm trying to walk through thick mud. Everyone at work has colds, allergies, etc. I'm wondering if my body ... Read more
Tracking
Tuesday, May 12, 2015      5 comments

It's hard to track the Atkins diet in the SP food tracker. For one thing, I don't know all the numbers of the measurements in the recipes and I'm not going to take the time to figure it out at this point. Maybe later. But, another key factor ... Read more
Back to Atkins
Sunday, May 10, 2015      3 comments

My roommate has a doctor's appt. on Thursday. She wants to drop 2lbs by then. The only way to do this safely is to go back to the Atkins diet. So, I got on the scale this morning. And felt like crying. I'm heavier than I've been in ages. B... Read more

It was interesting. They had the head nurse from the cardiac center give a talk, followed by two different personal trainers. The cardiac nurse said there are 4 main elements to physical fitness: 1) aerobic--ing exercises (walking, swimm... Read more
fitness lecture
Saturday, May 09, 2015      1 comments

I am sitting at the mall waiting the fitness lecture. The healthy breakfast consisted of plain yogurt, dry granola, and fruit. Since yogurt doesn't agree with me and i was afraid the granola might break another tooth, that left me with fruit. I... Read more

I went walking in the mall the other day and saw that the local hospital was sponsoring a "health day". It's a free healthy breakfast, health screenings, and a lecture about physical fitness followed by a series of different classes like mall w... Read more

and not really caring... today was my first ever attempt to bake a layer cake. Chocolate cake, custard filling, chocolate whipped cream icing. It doesn't look pretty, but it sure tastes good! I know, it's horrid for you (although i did b... Read more
Always an Adventure
Saturday, April 25, 2015      6 comments

For a laid back California girl, just living in Texas is an adventure. I've been here for 11 years now and I still remember the first two comments I heard about Texas: "Don't like the weather? Wait five minutes." "There's no weather to... Read more
Steps

I downloaded a pedometer to my cell phone. I carried it around with me today while I was at work. I took over 11,000 steps! Almost 5 miles just at work. No wonder I'm tired.... Read more
Renewed Life
Monday, April 06, 2015      4 comments

I feel that this is the message God's been sending my way. Not only have things gotten MUCH better at work, but I found a potential second job that I can do on my own time, my church helped me out financially, and today i'm going to an agency ... Read more
Just plain weird
Thursday, April 02, 2015      6 comments

Okay, so my assistant manager (who is someone I've always liked), dyed her hair back to what's normal for her: a combination of blond and red spikes. I never would have believed it, but dying her hair back changed her personality back to the pe... Read more
Biggest Loser update
Thursday, April 02, 2015      4 comments

It's unbelievable to me how much stress initiating something that should be just for fun has caused within my store. Several people have been excitedly asking me when the contest is going to start; however, the assistant manager is so offended ... Read more

I am initiating a "biggest loser" contest at work. It's going to run 9 weeks starting April 6th. (This is dependent on getting a minimum of 5 people to sign up!) We'll see how it goes. I have a question: on the SP nutrition tracker, how ... Read more
sharing the day
Monday, March 23, 2015      5 comments

We went to three different parks. Rosemeade Recreation Center, which I suppose is a great place if you want to go work out, play some basketball, etc. It's a fantastic place in the summer if you want to get wet since it has a huge aquatic cen... Read more
Rare day
Monday, March 23, 2015      0 comments

Today is sunny, expected to be in the 70's, AND I have the day off of work! Very rare when I can actually go outside--(I get overheated easily and am not allowed outside in TX if it's 90* or higher; though I've noticed that 85* is almost as bad... Read more
