First day back at work post surgery
Tuesday, March 07, 2017      1 comments

Even though I'm not back full time, I made my 45 minute drive to work today. I had to walk about a quarter of a mile from the parking lot to the library and I took the stairs down to my office. I'm slow and it's still a little painful to walk bu... Read more

I took my first steps today. It was a little scary but I did it and there was very little pain. I still have very little strength in my right calf but now that I can put weight on it the muscle will come back. It will be a couple of weeks before... Read more

I'm back after a 6 week hiatus due to ankle surgery. I needed a break from tracking and the computer in general. My ankle is healing nicely but I still have 4 weeks to go before I can start putting weight on it and another 2 -4 weeks after that ... Read more
60 on the horizon

In 7.5 weeks I will be 60. I've never been upset about getting older but this time I'm not thrilled. I can't seem to lose the weight I gained after shoulder surgery last year and I'm having ankle surgery at the end of this year. I really, really... Read more

I had allergy testing done this morning. Not a pleasant experience but not too bad. The big surprises were that I'm not allergic to mold but am to cats. We have 3 house cats, both of my daughters have house cats but I don't notice any allergic r... Read more

We're going to a family reunion this weekend in Richardson. It's supposed to be in the 100's so I'll need to make sure I have my migraine medicine. This will be the first reunion since my mother-in-law passed away. We all miss her very much. The... Read more
Cleaning house, so to speak
Thursday, July 11, 2013      6 comments

I decided to clean up my Nutrition Tracker Favorites list this morning. Boy did I have a lot of "bad" food in there. Pop tarts, which I haven't eaten in years but evidently ate when I started on Spark People back in 2009. I mainly wanted to grea... Read more

Ready for fall
Wednesday, September 30, 2009      0 comments

Here I am again, no weight loss and a sore arm. I guess I overdid it on my upper body workout Friday. So I have been taking it easy since Sunday because I could not raise my arm without it feeling like someone was trying to break it. It is bette... Read more
