I've eaten very well today, but haven't logged it yet. I will work on making sure I don't overeat tonight. I did have a few handfulls of white chocolate chips last night when I got home - the ones I use for making homemade truffles. I put the... Read more
Back to Work

I had to read some of my last few blogs to see what I had shared and what has happened since. Here’s a 30 min update (the amount of time it’ll take me to write it, not the amount of time it’ll take to read it.) Work – Today is my first ... Read more
Sick at "home"
Tuesday, March 19, 2013      6 comments

Normally I'd say that getting sick while on a trip is a bad thing. But as a mom to little kids, I've decided it's actually the best timing. Before kids I could lay around in bed or on the couch and concentrate on nothing more than resting, feel... Read more

I'm going to try to post some comments and replies tonight to the folks who've commented on my recent blogs - especially the old buddies - but this is going to be a quick blog before I head out to the gym. I'm working the night shift, so I got ... Read more
Taking my food with me to work tonight
Thursday, March 14, 2013      3 comments

I've got my food for dinner all lined up and in the fridge ready for me to take with me to work tonight. When we're on 12 hours shifts people bring us boxed lunches for the meals we miss. But you've got no control over what they bring or give ... Read more
Sparkpeople knows I'm in Korea

Greetings from Korea. Apparently SparkPeople knows I'm here too since my advertisements are in Korean. (Yes, I know the advertisements are based on IP addresses and min... Read more

I will make no predictions, claim any kind of victories, or make any excuses in this blog. I'm here. That's what counts. I'm long overdue for an update. I like these blogs of mine because they really captured my life and events for a long ti... Read more
Post layoff - Day 3 (aka Go, Beth, Go!!)
Thursday, September 13, 2012      3 comments

As I mentioned in my recent blogs, I'm walking the kids to and from school. This is no easy feat... it's 1.22 miles almost entirely uphill. My daughter was enthusiastic about the idea until the first day we did it. Since then she's been Litt... Read more
Post layoff - Day 2 (aka how the first couple days have gone)
Wednesday, September 12, 2012      3 comments

I've decided to title my blog titles with the day post-layoff. The main reason for this is because it's such a huge milestone and it's going to affect a lot of things. I'm going to have more time for exercise. I'm planning to do major organiz... Read more
Layoff Day
Tuesday, September 11, 2012      7 comments

Today was layoff day. What a roller coaster the past 60 days have been. 12.5 years with my company are over, but I'm glad about that. I really think it's sliding down hill fast. Everyone who is still there is terrified they're next, and ther... Read more

Hi! I'm back from two separate trips. My last blog was right before I went to S.F. to visit my dad and reclaim my son after he spent 10 days with my Dad at Anne's cabin. I got back from that on Sunday the 22nd. Then on Wednesday the 25th I t... Read more

I just finished creating a resume explicitly for training. I've applied to the job at ViaSat. I don't know if I'll have a shot at it or not. My salary expectations may be a bit high for a traininer... but I don't know what they have in mind. ... Read more
The four Stages of Grief - Acceptance and Hope!
Wednesday, July 18, 2012      6 comments

I'm not giving this blog a title yet. I don't really know what it's going to contain. I've done well today on food. I have continued to avoid the darn candy dishes all around me. Not easy for me to do. Candy and sweets are my biggest we... Read more
Today
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      6 comments

It's all about today. What did I do today? Well, okay, it's also about Sunday and Monday since I didn't post. I ran 5.2 miles on Sunday. After Steve came home I went for a run. It was nice to get out there. So yesterday I went ... Read more
Hoo boy - this is for me
Sunday, July 15, 2012      10 comments

I need to blog. I need a lot of things. But I need to blog. These blogs will be for me. I'm going to have a lot of ups and downs and public accountability has helped in the past. But that "public" aspect is going to have to come second ... Read more
