Second career mom

Update 4/12/14: Another sister joined Sparkpeople and she goes by ALICIA363. I am puttering along, mostly for the community. I do track my fitness, but tracking food tends to backfire on me. When I try to track food, I will just not eat because I don't want to track it. I found that to be true when I had to do it for a Lifetime Fitness class, and when I tracked I was only eating 1000-1200 calories. I am starting to develop the ability to notice when I am full and stop eating. When I ...
Update 4/12/14: Another sister joined Sparkpeople and she goes by ALICIA363. I am puttering along, mostly for the community. I do track my fitness, but tracking food tends to backfire on me. When I try to track food, I will just not eat because I don't want to track it. I found that to be true when I had to do it for a Lifetime Fitness class, and when I tracked I was only eating 1000-1200 calories. I am starting to develop the ability to notice when I am full and stop eating. When I don't, and overeat, I feel miserable, and that has kept me accountable for the most part. I think too, I am happier living on my own, away from my STBX. I know nutritionally I could still improve my choices, but for now, I am not arguing that I feel better and the scale is ever so slowly showing smaller numbers.

Update 3/3/2014: Now living in Iowa, where I got my first PTA (Physical Therapist Assistant) job. In the process of getting divorced, and 13 yr old son moved to Iowa with me last week. I started my job on November 22, and have loved almost every minute of it. The minutes I haven't loved are things that are annoyances that come with any job.

I lived in Nebraska and completed an Associate's degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant in March 2013. As of August 5th, 2013 I am licensed in the State of Nebraska.

Part of my motivation to join Sparkpeople was that while I was on my final clinical rotation Jan-March 2013, I lost 11.8 pounds. My profile pic is after that loss, but my "starting point" from here forward. I would like to lose more, but most definitely I want to keep it off.

For those of you who have been around for awhile, or if you wonder who the heck I am, I may have come across something you posted on one of my sibling's pages. ONEKIDSMOM is my sister and MOBYCARP is my brother. Now they have me sparking too. Currently I am mostly puttering, but at least trying.

Little Andi Bug is doing good. I have her spoiled rotten. She is so sweet, but she has an ornery side. She gets out in they yard and becomes a Hoover vacuum cleaner. She will pick up sticks, rocks, moss or whatever comes in her path. When I try to get her to stop she makes a game of it and starts running from me. Makes me so mad, lol. Terry can point his finger and tell her to stop and she does, but me she keeps right on running. Ugh! Animals own me instead of the other way around haha

Hubby was very cool with it all. He said the jello and broth did it; he even denied being hungry and his mood was no different than usual!! Thanks for asking. -Marsha

No blog today. Unless I get inspired late tonight. I am going to see a friend and will be leaving in a half hour. I've been working on recovering and trying to deal with the pain. It ain't easy. Feeling pretty good right now-just got back from the massage therapist. Let's see how long it lasts!

Amen on the sport type sunscreen. I've been hiking for years and liberally use 50+ sports screens. I never get burned...if I remember to re-apply during the day! emoticon

LOL - do you watch Grey's Anatomy? One of the drs, Callie, dances in her undies. Sort of her statement of freedom. I try to adopt it! (And the actress is a very fit size 14-16, so she's a great role model for undies dancing!)
