Hello August or things are looking up!
Saturday, August 13, 2011      6 comments

I am starting to feel much better. I think my trip home was an emotional blow to me. Difficult cleaning out my dad's house and difficult seeing him failing so fast in the nursing home. The whole thing really put me in a blue funk. That, with... Read more
Good riddance July or why I'm fat, frumpy, and flabby (again)

This entire spring has offered me some real challenges and made it difficult for me to stay on track. I tried and wasn't doing too badly. June wasn't great but then July happened. ... Read more
Sinus infection???
Sunday, June 26, 2011      7 comments

I had a cold about 2 weeks ago and it has just been hanging on. I now think it's a sinus infection--I have a history of them. I rarely get a cold that just goes away, but usually end up like this. I don't feel awful; just don't feel good. I ... Read more

Well, my determination to cut back on computer hours has not been effective so far. Just a very difficult habit to break!!! I will keep working on it, though. It has to happen for me to get some real life time!! LOL This past week has just ... Read more

I am soooo frustrated with myself right now!! Sure, I would like to blame Spark or Facebook or email or shopping sites but this is really about me! I am addicted to my laptop. One of my goals for this year was to limit my computer time to 2 h... Read more

Many of you know I have been worrying a lot about my 86 year old father in Indiana. (I am in VA). Dad's money is rapidly running out and we knew that about July we would no longer be able to afford the round the clock caregivers in his home an... Read more

So another week has passed. It was a fairly good one. I did not exercise. Since last week when my foot hurt after using the resistance band I was afraid to risk doing anything on that foot. I wore nice supportive sneakers all week and, altho... Read more

I did not blog last week. I had nothing to say. Every time I sat down to write I came up blank. Writer’s block? For a blog? Really? Anyway, I spent a lot of time reading blogs and enjoying every one of them. Thinking about the writers, “... Read more
IBS Weight Loss Plan........
Sunday, May 08, 2011      8 comments

Well, I've definitely had better weeks!! I've lost two pounds but not because I've done anything healthy. Two pound loss would be thank you to stress induced IBS. UGH!! On Monday night, our dear son produced enough drama to last us quite aw... Read more

Well, I'm feeling more energetic this week. I've been fairly consistent with exercise and the eating has been OK. I sure wish the weather would improve--I think I would feel even better. These are the times that convince me that focusing on h... Read more

Last week was a crazy one to be sure! Daughter and grandbabies arrived on Tuesday and left on Friday. I was beyond exhausted!!!! We were busy the entire time. Got Connor's first haircut (YAY!) and he took a couple "first" steps. We went to ... Read more

Well, not a bad week. Too much rain and wind but, overall, a good week. Seems like I was exceptionally busy but I sure couldn’t tell you doing what. I know I spend too much time on the computer. I really need to cut back!!! It’s one of my g... Read more

Test results are back! First, Connor; he’s fine. Everything absolutely normal and since he’s been feeling better he’s gained a half pound and eats like a horse!!! My test results were negative for autoimmune disorders of any kind!! Very hap... Read more
A testing time....
Sunday, April 03, 2011      2 comments

What a week!! ANA test (for autoimmune disorder) came back borderline high with a specific pattern. Dermatologist wanted to do scalp biopsy. Had that done on Thursday. What fun! Not a procedure for the squeamish. Let’s just say needles, “p... Read more

I actually had a pretty good week. I did some exercise which made me sore but also made me feel better. More fit, more energy. Tracked food every day and did well with my food all week. Still struggle with water---why??? You just drink—no ... Read more
