Committed
Saturday, January 09, 2010      3 comments

I've started reading 'The Spark'. Between the book and the site, I'm committed to change the status quo. I need to start eating more protein and drop some pounds. I like the way another member has put it - getting rid of the trash. I've got some... Read more
Restless Night
Friday, January 08, 2010      3 comments

I laid down for a nap yesterday and slept 4 hours. I guess I was just so relieved that I didn't need surgery. However, I have been up every 2 hours tonight. Finally, I decided to log on the computer and post. I will be going back to bed soon and... Read more
Ortho Appointment
Thursday, January 07, 2010      2 comments

I saw the ortho doctor today and overall the news was good. I have severe arthritis, bone on bone, which I knew. There is a bone spur, which I suspected. I've had bone spurs removed from both knees in the past. The new pain is caused from bursi... Read more
Feeling Better

I have had a better day today with no sneezing. Breathing is normal. I guess the orange I got as a goodie, the prayers and taking care of myself did the trick. Thanks everyone.... Read more
May be Getting a Cold
Tuesday, January 05, 2010      6 comments

I've had nasal congestion today and now have started to sneeze. I've never had winter allergies, so I doubt that is what is going on. My best guess is that I'm coming down with a cold. As a cold is caused by a virus, I'll be drinking plenty of t... Read more
Snow Storm
Monday, January 04, 2010      8 comments

I braved the elements and drove through the snow storm to work today. As I visit patients in their homes, it meant driving ALL DAY in the yuck. Then getting in and out of the car. I'm glad to be home and out of the storm. The snow is continuing ... Read more

After four tries, the add a food tracker came up without an ad and I was able to track my food. Hurray! Thanks for the suggestions. I guess I was frustrated yesterday when I couldn't track when I wanted to. BTW, I'm glad to know that I'm not ... Read more
Food Tracker
Saturday, January 02, 2010      3 comments

I wasn't able to track my food yesterday because of the ad at the top of the screen causing a problem. It takes up room and I cannot click on the add button. This is most frustrating. I hope it gets removed or that tech support makes a way fo... Read more

I will be spending New Year's Eve reflecting on this past year. In the past, Tim and I have gone out. I am still getting over his loss. I didn't realize how much I would miss him.When he would go to Florida, I didn't miss him the way I do now. I... Read more
Knee

I have taken the next step in finding out what I did to my knee when I twisted it. The pain has gone on too long, despite proper treatment. Today, I had a MRI of it. Next week, I go to the orthopedist. Hopefully, it is something minor and can be... Read more

The Christmas parties are over and I did not overdo. I did taste a few treats. I did what I could despite a 'bum' knee. I am paying for playing the Wii with my grandchildren today, but am glad I did it. It has been a good season, despite missing... Read more

So far this Christmas season, I have done well. My weight has not gone up! This is a first for me. Today is the last party of the season. I brought clemitines and popcorn so as to resist the high calorie cookies, etc. This one will be smaller as... Read more
