Feeling so very tired again - felt foggy brain and slight headache all day. I worked along, and at lunch took a walk and did some stairs. I ate healthy enough. My father had a procedure done to his heart today and I visited him after work. I... Read more

The last few days I've not been good at keeping with my goals. It is not emotional eating, but it is "life sucks" - giving up. I know it and I see it, but it still is happening, I had to pull myself to the side today and give myself a... Read more

Yesterday, along with my mother and husband I attend the Seattle Tea Festival. By the small attendence, I would venture that not many people have yet discovered this wonder on its second show in Seattle. I was delightful to be handed a cup tha... Read more

I feel like crying. I can't hardly read the x-ray report. Louis fractured his leg at the site of the pins from his TPLO (knee) surgery. X-rays were taken tonight after he went lame. We take him back to the surgeon on Tuesday. Right now he i... Read more

Tuesday, September 29, 2009      0 comments

Yesterday at the end of the day, I just wanted to eat and eat. Today just the opposite. Ever since this morning I've had to push myself to eat something. Everything I ate because I needed to rather than feeling hungry. I didn't get to my cal... Read more

I did just enough stairs today to round off the total number to 400, but it was time to switch activities. So I did some of the SparkPeople videos - still taking it easy on my right side. Honestly I've been rather lazy today - so many plan... Read more

From yesterdays blog I got asked about the hop tea I was drinking. The same plant that is used to make beer -- it actually slows the reaction of the yeast and stops bad bacteria from growing -- is at the point for harvest at this time of year. ... Read more

The hamster spirit kicked in again and I did forty flights of stairs today. I got my flu shot and remembered to take Aleve to prevent a sore arm. Ate a brownie at lunch just to avoid the attitude that I'm losing too much weight - hah, but ... Read more

Tuesday my husband took me to the Puyallup Fair. It was a great way to start being active after a short set back. We walked all over, so I got at least half of the time as active walking. Of course this was off set by fair food. My total con... Read more

I went to work, but I sure didn't feel like it. Thank goodness another person in my group called in sick and I got to do paperwork prep for most of the day rather than working directly over patients. It still is slamming busy, but at least I c... Read more

I've been signing in, drinking water, logging meals daily....I had a streak going on, but yesterday hit. I felt very weak, dizzy, and a huge stabbing pain in my abdomen. I stayed home from work and just took sleeping pills all day to keep ... Read more
