6/12 Long Week
Friday, June 12, 2020      11 comments

This has been a long week on many fronts. I slipped a bit on my plan. I think it was because of many factors. Work was INSANE. We are in the midst of 2 huge enterprise projects and on top of that a bunch of little projects were added on ... Read more

A week has passed since I started buckling down on my eating and kicked up my exercise. I have been following the weight watchers plan and really cut down on my snacking, which was definitely two-thirds of the problem. I've really steppe... Read more

In general, I am well. I have a roof over my head, a job to go to, and people that love me. I am still struggling with consistency in food and exercise. I have gained about 5 lbs on top of my 4lbs from vacation in February. Right now I'm in the... Read more

I must admit that I have been using my "captivity" as an excuse to eat more. I have purchased foods that had previously been banded. The results are not good. My weight has crept up to an unacceptable number. Truthfully, it had been creeping u... Read more

Today my uncle was laid to rest. Another victim of Covid-19. He lived in a nursing home for the past 10 months since his last surgery for a broken hip. I think he mostly liked it there since my aunt died and he was all alone. These times ar... Read more

Not much has changed in our routine over the past couple of weeks. We are limiting ourselves to one trip to the store a week. We go during the senior shopping hours. I've never been so happy to be a senior. ... Read more

Hubby and I are holding steady. We are only leaving the house for groceries and to exercise. I am glad that they have the early shopping hours for seniors. We went yesterday at 6am. There were many people there but nothing like the first time ... Read more

Hubby and I are good. We are both working from home now until whenever. We are only going out to get food or for exercise. We use to eat out a lot but obviously no longer and I must admit that I am a bit paranoid about getting take out so I ha... Read more
I Need a Force Field
Sunday, March 08, 2020      7 comments

Things have been a bit stressful. Some is caused by me or my perceptions of things and other caused by externals. The externals are work of course and a little at home around some home improvements. I only go into the office two days a we... Read more

I just upgraded myfitnesspal app to Premium so I can see more data about my eating choices. It's very interesting. I started focusing on macros this week and am doing okay. It's really difficult to get all 3 to land at the desired percentage. ... Read more

Trying to stay on the down low
Monday, February 10, 2020      5 comments

I am a doer not a watcher and that can get me in trouble sometimes. If I encounter a frustrating situation caused by someone else, my first inclination is to just say I will do it. Over the last several months since my aunt died, I've been ... Read more
