And then there are bad days...
Wednesday, June 25, 2008      3 comments

What can I say out of the blue my uncle dies. He was the youngest of four. My father is the oldest. He comes from the "heavy" side of our family. My dad called and sobbing said "I'm sure his weight was a factor and the fact that he never cou... Read more

Tiara challenge 7/1000 Sun is finally out in Seattle. I'm just leaving for a BBQ, so I hope I make good choices. Getting up early to set up for the Komen (Seattle) race for the cure and have 4 people from here (that I know of) that will b... Read more
GREAT DAY II - "Jenna Tiara" challenge
Friday, June 20, 2008      2 comments

Did well on food - didn't even fudge. Super on exercise, I did 6.7 miles on the treadmill, then came home and gave my "personal trainer" a mile walk. I stopped by a gym on the way home to ask the cost for a personal trainer. This weight is of... Read more
GREAT DAY!!
Thursday, June 19, 2008      2 comments

Keep it simple I did what I was suppose to eat, exercise and support sparkpeople - even though I felt slow, tired and more like being a slug. I'm proud of myself. Tiger Woman now has a home. We joined the spark's team for menopausal woman... Read more
Closer to the Sun
Monday, June 16, 2008      2 comments

I want to get closer to the sun this summer not only by talking walks in it, but also by eating that way. I've not been having quite as much sun Sparkle lately due to several reason and I thought I'd share the logic for anyone attempting to use... Read more
Being a (tiger) woman, the fun never ends
Saturday, June 14, 2008      2 comments

My hormone issues started July 2006. The never ending heavy "Aunt Flow" visits. A trip to the doctor got me a few packs of birth control pills and pretty soon life was back to normal. Then the February 2007 brain aneurysm hit...who knows ... Read more

Mammograms - it's just too funny
Wednesday, June 11, 2008      4 comments

Ok, so not everyone here is female, or over the age of 40. So not everyone is in the recommended range for getting mammograms. However, anyone over the age of 18 -- including you guys (yes 1-3% of breast cancer is found in men), should be chec... Read more
Second Wind - the lift to new progress
Sunday, June 08, 2008      0 comments

I'm pleased that I've not lost ground, but neither have I made progress like the past. Today I had a reality talk with myself that it was time to pick up and take off again. I feel in a good position to write this as I just finished doing ... Read more
How "why Providgil sucks" turned into how "Spark rocks"
Friday, April 11, 2008      1 comments

I was about to come out here and rag on my situation. I had a great day at work (actually it was a strange day where nearly all the patients were more high need that typical), but Providgil keep me going. Now the down side, I'm still up ... Read more
I remember rock climbing...
Sunday, March 30, 2008      2 comments

In my 30's I made friends with some guys that had climbed K2. I started doing small climbs with them. I was amazed that the old skills of balance that I'd learned doing ballet filled in extremely well where my strength lacked. The problem... Read more
Moderation
Saturday, March 22, 2008      1 comments

Since I'm obese, I look at certain foods (butter, cream, cheese, fast food, etc), like giving alcohol to an alcoholic. There is no moderation on these. Either I find an alternative (non-stick spray) or I go without. Other foods, I see as ... Read more
Coasting to Childhood
Tuesday, March 11, 2008      1 comments

I raced out of the gate. Maybe a tad fast and ended up with blisters. So I got logical and slowed it down. My eating has still been doing very well and I've continued to lose weight (and body fat, now under 40%!), but I've gotten lax on the e... Read more
What is a serving of fruit and vegetables anyway???
Monday, February 18, 2008      1 comments

Ok, I think I'm so smart, but when I was asked to answer how many servings of fruits and vegetables today, I honestly didn't have a clue. I knew I ate a pear, a salad that covered a large dinner plate, a bowel of tomato soup, some berry yog... Read more
Out of the New Year's Gate; the Pain of Success
Saturday, February 16, 2008      1 comments

Last year was hell to summarize on the lighter side. So many doctor's visits, I had to start carrying a portfolio just to keep track of who I saw when and what meds I was taking. The quick overview: numbness on my right cheek, partial loss of ... Read more
