  • Changes ... 11/9/2019

    11/9/2019 10:26:14 AM, by COOKIE_AT_51

    For those of you over 50 years old (maybe even starting in the 40's) you are aware of the subtle changes that happen as we age. We all know that change is inevitable and I suppose we should embrace changes as otherwise we become stagnant. I was talking to a friend who's daughter had run the New... Read more

  • Great Big Rainbow World the Musical

    11/5/2019 11:28:01 AM, by MELVEGGIE

    Last night, I was able to go to a staged reading of Great Big Rainbow World the Musical. It's a lesbian rugby coming-of-age love story, and it's absolutely wonderful. I've been hearing snippets of songs for months, and I was really excited about it, but it was even better than I was expecting! ... Read more

  • Cholesterol

    11/4/2019 10:53:03 AM, by MELVEGGIE

    This morning, I opened SparkPeople, and I was quite bothered by what I saw. Before I could get to my content, there was an advertisement for eggs. And it proclaims, "a healthy start to your day!" or something along those lines. Well, yesterday I did have eggs to start my day. 2 eggs, whi... Read more

  • 11/4/2019: Reflection on Grief

    11/4/2019 8:31:05 AM, by COOKIE_AT_51

    Reflection: a friend of mine lost her mother recently to cancer and it was so painful to watch her go through this (we are Facebook friends). It was like reliving losing my mom all over again. Going through the process of "watching her die" was the worst thing I have every experienced. I didn't expe... Read more

  • Behind The Scenes

    11/3/2019 7:46:09 PM, by MELVEGGIE

    Wow! I had a great day yesterday working behind the scenes on a movie. Specifically, I helped with craft services, and took behind the scenes photos! It was a LOT of fun. It wasn't as active of a day as I would have liked, and there is a lot of standing and waiting when filming, which wa... Read more

  • Wow, where to begin again...

    11/3/2019 7:59:40 AM, by COOKIE_AT_51

    So much has happened since my last blog, unfortunately it has been many years. :( I am glad that I posted a few times as it shows me a "timeline" of what has happened in my life to bring me to today. I was prompted to write a blog today because I finally got myself a new Fitbit device. I had gone ... Read more

  • YTD Progress w/November Goals

    11/2/2019 9:35:17 AM, by SWALLIS7

    Been working hard at trying to focus on one thing at a time. Trying to make this year, the year of change to healthier habits. I started the year out trying to let faith back into my life. Regaining my faith allowed me strength to focus on other things I needed to improve. My anxiety has been ... Read more

  • Motivation?

    10/30/2019 10:12:00 AM, by MELVEGGIE

    The last two days have been really rough for me. I'm not sure what's going on, but I've been really depressed. I've also had headaches. Well, nothing makes me want to move less than a headache! But I feel pretty good today. My headache is gone, I think. (Sometimes they are tricky.) And I woke ... Read more

    Ok so here goes...I've had trouble with my weight since middle school. So it's never been any front page news that I've suffered alot of ridicule and heart ache. Ive been told many many years ago that I have a fatty liver. I didnt pay much attention to it and continued eating anything and everything... Read more

  • Grocery Shopping

    10/27/2019 9:16:41 PM, by MELVEGGIE

    I met my step goal today! But I met it exclusively through shopping, which I find to be absolutely exhausting. What is it about shopping that is so much harder on you that walking or hiking? My ankles, feet, and knees are all sore! I'm glad to meet my step goal, and I'm glad to get all t... Read more

  • Goal Updates - Making Progress

    10/27/2019 7:14:27 PM, by SWALLIS7

    This has been a very good week and overall I'm very happy with my accomplishments! I've been struggling for months to get back on track. Found more excuses then I did dedication. But this week my attitude changed! I've done my regular walking on breaks at work. I bring my own lunch to work so ... Read more

  • Cupping

    10/25/2019 11:37:38 AM, by ERINLINDSAY83

    As a desperate attempt to help control the daily migraines, which not surprisingly have gotten worse with this new insane stress/heartache, I have been biting the bullet and getting weekly massages. (I LOVE massages; the harder the better. But I don't love the price tag, lol.) This week I tho... Read more

  • Fitness Plan - for real?

    10/25/2019 7:59:15 AM, by SWALLIS7

    I've been asking my husband for months if he'd start going to the gym with me and help me get back on track. He always says that he's too tired after his day...since he is a tennis instructor and runs around every day. Here comes the But... I understand that, but the last time I was successful ...

  • Meeting my step goal

    10/24/2019 7:35:05 PM, by MELVEGGIE

    Every Wednesday, I get an email from fitbit that tells me about my activity for the past week. It lays out every day, and how many steps you had, and your "best day." This week, for the first time, my "best day" didn't meet my step goal. I didn't meet my goal a single time during the week! That... Read more

  • Job Search

    10/23/2019 5:28:39 PM, by MELVEGGIE

    I'm feeling a lot of stress in looking for a job. I've actually been able to stay pretty calm. I quit my last job without having another job lined up. I thought I would just be able to start temping and find something quickly, but it hasn't been AS quickly as I would have liked. Also, it's jus... Read more

  • Stray Kitty

    10/22/2019 9:50:49 AM, by ERINLINDSAY83

    Two weeks ago my niece and step-daughter brought a stray cat into the house. We already have two cats; I didn't want more (ever.) We made an appointment at the vet to see if she was microchipped. Then otherwise would take her to the humane society. We kept her quarantined in the bathroom... Read more
