Tried to start up my computer but I think the hard drive died- crap. I also think I might have gotten what my Mom had as she was coughing in the direction of my food last Friday when we went out. Turns out she has pneumonia and asthma *( yeah I know I can't get the latter especially as I already have it but I DON'T WANT THE FORMER).I am trying to type this on someone else's computer AND am NOW in DIRE NEED of a BRICK WALL ( a real one not a FLOYDIAN one) for MY HEAD.

    My doctor started me on meds for allergies and asthma as he is predicting this to be a bad year for them. I am already wheezing. Hopefully I won't get pneumonia again. I don't think I will survive. I hope you feel better soon.

not too much to say I feel like I am plateauing as far as weight loss is going, I guess I over did it last night as I went to bed feeling kind of crappy and then woke up feeling like I had a fever in my body (but NOT my head) all hot and sore. I put it down to doing callisthenics and then lifting weights. Still I am so frustrated that I will do anything.

    I'm sorry that you are frustrated. Plateauing is no fun. Sometimes you gotta mix it up or try something new other times you just gotta stick with it and work through it so that you can get your body through it.

Good Luck- YOU GOT THIS!

Because it is private what you post in the group doesnít show up on your regular feed. I would love for you to join us. If you would like you can either message me your email address and I can add you that way (we donít have to be FB friends if I add you by emailÖ.. OR you can find me on Facebook and add me as a friend ( Once you add me as a friend I can add you directly to the group. I hope you join in!!

Well I burnt up 2 days vacation on Thursday and Friday and now the weekend is nearly over I can never figure out how it feels like the workdays never ever go by fast enough and yet the days off seem to fly by.

    Very true. The problem is that people have to work too much.

I took today off (sort of there's always things to do whether I am at work or NOT- sometimes I feel like working more hours if I could have a promise of being PAID for them). I recently got a sparkgoodie with the message "happy spring" yeah if only - there' s still 3 inches of SNOW on the ground I still have to scrape my windows and there still ICE in spots. Global warming my arse.

Well I just submitted part of the exam questions I had worked on - the BAD part is I still have another 10 to do for ELECTRICAL engineering technology which is somewhat removed albeit slightly from my scope of expertise coupled with the fact I have to have it in by the 6th of April so I think this may very well be the last blog you may see for a week or 2 as my university studies have been TOTALLY sidelined. I am trying very hard to change what I have been thinking about lately as I know if keep going down the path I have been going it is NOT good for my emotional health. I know I have to try to get a different job ALSO as I know its not healthy to keep working for this person (too bad one of the other departments I had had interviews for didn't offer me a job in Edmonton),
I still keep working out as its the one distraction I have left. I don't necessarily notice the change in the scales BUT things seem to move easier and clothes fit better.

Have a great week,

    Sounds like you are knee deep in "school" type work and are doing the right thing by knucking under. I also think you are doing the right thing with your emotional health too. Working out is good and I hopw you will continue to do that. It will help you burn off stress.
