Friday, March 15, 2013      6 comments

Exercise seems to be my new best friend, I wish we could become closer. It would be nice to look forward to our daily visits but that may take a bit longer to achieve. I tweaked my diet this week with the advice from a very helpful dietitian ... Read more

I’ve been having a rough couple of days. Today it’s over, I’m done feeling sorry for myself – I’m back! While looking online yesterday I found the following words listed as something called a “pain blog”. I hadn’t searched for anything to do ... Read more
Entering Week 6 - Frustration Levels Rising
Monday, March 11, 2013      4 comments

Today I'm having trouble keep up my usual "stay positive no matter what" attitude. Maybe it's the time change, every spring I it takes my body a good 2 weeks to adjust to daylight savings time and while I'm adjusting I just feel grumpy. Regar... Read more

I almost changed my status today to, “Stuck on the Mountain” but thought about it and decided, “No, I’m still climbing, just slipping a bit”. I held my breath this morning when stepping on my scale for my weekly weigh-in. After such a bad w... Read more
Climbing the Mountain
Thursday, March 07, 2013      8 comments

A month or so ago I found myself standing at the base of a very large mountain looking up. I was trying to decide if I wanted to start climbing or just give up and go home. It looked like a really hard climb, and the mountain was SO BIG! I de... Read more

I guess my word for today is perseverance. Again from “The Merriam Webster Learners Dictionary”: Perseverance: the quality that allows someone to continue trying to do something even though it is difficult I had a pretty rough day y... Read more
Don’t Tell Me I Can’t!
Monday, March 04, 2013      12 comments

I am just stubborn enough that if someone tells me I can’t do something it provides enough incentive for me to pull together whatever is required and do exactly what I was told I couldn’t. Unfortunately that trait doesn’t seem to kick in when I... Read more

I was originally going to write something else today but I received a phone call last night that has been weighing heavily on my mind so I decided to write about it instead. My son called because he couldn't sleep and wanted to talk, mainly I... Read more
A New Day
Friday, March 01, 2013      0 comments

It's 8:30 in the morning here, calm and quiet outside as usual. I've decided my attitude is starting to shift to the negative. I'm NOT a negative person. I don't want to be a negative person. Today is a new day and today my attitude starts i... Read more
A Calm Day

I decided to take a day away from the craziness yesterday and let my foot rest a little. I made soup, a big enough batch to freeze some for later. I caught up on my reading - in addition to audio books I also read actual books. Rod and I took... Read more

OK, Originally I was going to write about my day yesterday. We picked up our new truck (pictures coming soon) and I had a too long shopping trip to Costco. Now all of that sounds boring, I decided to step on my nemesis, THE SCALE, this morning... Read more

I won't be on SparkPeople much again today. We're leaving in a couple hours to drive to Marin, about 120 miles south of us, to pick up my husband's new Toyota Tundra. He ordered it from the Toyota dealer in November so it's been a long wait. ... Read more
The Guilt of Cheating
Sunday, February 24, 2013      6 comments

I posted this on all my team pages this morning and then decided it pretty much summed up what I'm feeling today so decided to post it here also. Yesterday was a good day – and a bad day. I “cheated” on my diet and treated myself to a BIG ... Read more
Busy Day
Saturday, February 23, 2013      1 comments

I got into a bit of an exercise frenzy this morning, testing the limits of my new shoes I guess. I did my new Walk Aerobics DVD all the way through for the first time, that lasted 25 minutes and is supposed to be the equivalent of a 2 mile walk... Read more
