Back at it!

Well, since I last blogged, a lot has happened. My sweet mother went in for a routine follow-up blood pressure exam, and they scheduled her for an angiogram. Come to find out, she had 4 severely blocked arteries and her aortic valve needed rep... Read more

I have had a little lazy period from blogging. Just felt like I didn't have much to say. Or maybe didn't know how to say it. I've been on the road a lot this month. A trip to clown camp in Georgia the first week, then to Texas and back last ... Read more

Well, I can never seem to do anything half-way. I went in for a routine outpatient surgery last Friday, and ended up having two surgeries, a blood transfusion, and two days in the hospital. I'm doing better today, and am on my way to feeling s... Read more
Valid vs. Invalid Excuses
Thursday, June 30, 2011 5 comments
I'm gonna be honest....I'm the QUEEN of making excuses. I tell myself all kinds of lies to justify my actions. Probably 90% of the time, they are just lies. Reasonings I "make up" to allow myself to do those things I know I really shouldn't b... Read more
Weak Body, Strong Mind
Wednesday, June 29, 2011 6 comments
Okay, so if you've read my previous blogs, you know I've been having some issues with my blood levels and severe anemia. I knew the cause was uterine fibroids, and of course that has all been confirmed through many different exams, probes, doct... Read more
Learning from an Annoyance
Thursday, June 23, 2011 5 comments
Okay, the older I get, the less tolerant I seem to get about some things. Things that didn't used to bother me, now bother me. Well, this week I learned a great lesson from one of my biggest annoyances. Now, before I get started, I have t... Read more
But what about that bulge?
Tuesday, June 21, 2011 6 comments
Okay, I've been steadily losing weight since joining SP. Not by leaps or bounds or anything, but consistently losing 1-3 pounds a week, which is good for me, and is what my doctor says is the best way to lose...steadily, a little at a time, mak... Read more
A Week for Me
Monday, June 13, 2011 9 comments
Okay, I have to preface this blog by saying that I LOVE my husband dearly and have come to love my stepson as my own, as well, and there are probably no two people on the earth I'd rather spend time with than then (and my mother!). But sometime... Read more
Emotional Wreck is GONE....SO much better today!
Friday, June 10, 2011 2 comments
I have been an emotional wreck this week, when I normally have a very even-keeled nature. So, I've been trying to ascertain where this "emotion" has come from this week, other than the obvious doctor visit and conversation. Don't get me wrong,... Read more
I've got Good news and Bad news....
Thursday, June 09, 2011 6 comments
Which would you like first? Don't you hate it when someone says that? Well, my doctor said it the other day! She gave me the good news first. My cholesterol is at NORMAL levels without medication, so she took me off the only prescription I'm... Read more
No longer Dreading the Doctor
Tuesday, June 07, 2011 4 comments
My doctor is a very nice lady. Although she's been my doctor for many years (probably 10 or more), and she always "encourages" me to lose weight, she always does it in a very nice manner and does not demean me or humiliate me in any way. In sp... Read more
Some Days the Scale is NOT my Friend!
Monday, June 06, 2011 7 comments
Even when I'm losing, some days the scale is just NOT my friend. I used to weigh every day at the gym, but quickly gave that up when my water weight fluctuated so much, I could gain 2 lbs one day and lose 3 the next, and so on. Now, I weigh on... Read more
Why is that?
Thursday, June 02, 2011 7 comments
Why is it that some people can eat just about anything they want, in any quantity they want, and not gain a pound? Why is it that some people can spend half their day in front of the tv or playing a video game, and never exercise, but still hav... Read more

Birds of a Feather
Wednesday, May 25, 2011 3 comments
Saboteurs. Do you have them in your life? I do in mine. Sometimes, I admit, I sabotage myself; but for the past year I've come to realize some of my so-called "friends" are for some reason threatened by my new "way of life" and approach to fo... Read more
