Getting my act together. 37 days from my latest goal
Saturday, July 25, 2015      8 comments

It's still a struggle to get going to the gym on my non-trainer days. I make excuses to myself. I've got 6 pounds to Onderland and have been in this position before; exactly a year ago. Motivation needs to kick in so I can get past that hurdle... Read more

I called for my now 2 year old grandson to wish him a happy birthday. Try talking to a 2 year old who has discovered the smartphone. I have no idea what he said except "Nana" and he hung up. My DD calls me back to inform me he is going to be... Read more

I'm not a scale person. For one, I own a cheap scale. It works to ensure my bags are not overweight for the planes I fly. If I step off and back on, I guarantee there will be a change in a pound or two. My scale has ranged from 206 to 210-... Read more
Update on that job I have been complaining about since I got it. In case you were curious.

Not to long ago, amidst the chaos and heartbreak I've been living in, I realized I'd grown accustomed to the place. Don't get me wrong, it's still full problems but I found (and heard) I'd made a huge difference. ... Read more

We spent the afternoon at the doctors then the evening in the ER and got home at 1 am. DH is doing better than I thought but the pain is becoming debilitating. In easy lingo he has calcifications in his insides destroying some organs. The jury i... Read more
Found: abdominal muscles and 1 new exercise
Sunday, July 12, 2015      13 comments

It's tough working all around those acquired and age related injuries. I have compensated so much that my back takes over for almost any exercise I do and yells at me after every workout. On my evaluation, Mike said "Lay flat on your back and li... Read more
I have the wisdom and the humor. Grant me the strength to not get too frustrated.

I enjoyed the gym with a vengeance this morning. I'm trying to commit myself to a sturdy 4 days a week. I need to buy new clothes. Awesome. I'm also in discomfort now. It's tough to do all this when you've destroyed every joint in your bo... Read more
Keeping it light. NSV

We were out of milk and the only store on the way home is a danger zone. I grabbed a cart and decided I'd head to the fruit/milk aisle and run away. It was dinner time, I had a frustrating day and no solid meal plan. DANGER! Strawberries for... Read more
Sing: Everything's better, down where it's wetter...under the sea! Pool exercises
Wednesday, July 08, 2015      6 comments

My buddy FIFIFRIZZLE kept shouting "Go in the pool!" It turns out that my "sea" exercises are spot on as when on "land" my knees are not forgiving and my back takes over for everything. No one realizes how out of shape I really am as I look he... Read more

Funky word, huh? I like it. Moniker AKA (also known as) Nickname Handle (Breaker 1-9; what's your handle?) I've become an escape artist of sorts. I am the supervisor on-call this weekend so need to be ready to find coverage for... Read more
Throwing lemons.
Saturday, July 04, 2015      11 comments

I've thrown them back many a time. I've made lemonade. I'm not able to duck these ones. DH had a short, 12 hour short, respite from pain. It came back with a vengeance yesterday and knocked him down. I'm guessing the stent clogged with the ... Read more
Can I have some seriously reduced-fat cheese with that whine?
Thursday, July 02, 2015      10 comments

Last MD appointment found my glucose still on the rise, A1c was still elevated. Although my cholesterol was 160 (thanks Crestor), the other magic numbers needed some more magic. If I never ate fat again I'd still have cholesterol issues as it'... Read more
One day, one procedure at a time
Tuesday, June 30, 2015      9 comments

DH underwent a successful procedure today. I've been in healthcare for over 40 years and back in the day (yes, I said that) what he went through would have required major surgery and at least 5 days in the hospital. Fast forward though the t... Read more
Night out at wedding reception-my head,ears and feet are complaining.
Monday, June 29, 2015      11 comments

I keep thinking-no one made me eat, drink and be merry. I have no one to blame except for myself. I went to the wedding reception of my employees' daughter. The kids were married in India last month and as part of the highlights they played ... Read more

Apparently I got the right formula this year, thanks to Mother Nature. The right amount of sun, rain and love! The squash is about a week from picking. ... Read more
