A new beginning...hopefully
Well maybe I's time I started blogging again. For now I will double blog on both CK and SP. I've been with CK (CalorieKing) since 2005 and with SP (SparkPeople) sporadically over the years.
I like the diary, weight tracker, charts, the ... Read more
Frustrated after dr. apt.
Had an appointment with Dr. K today. It didn't go as well as I'd hoped.
My list of concerns were:
1. Depression worse
2. Pain: elbow, hip, back (all unrelated)
3. Dry skin on my face.
1. First she wanted to blame my worsening ... Read more
Much anxiety, Some depression, but overall a Good Day
Day started well. I was up before 5 a.m. feeling awake and rested. Had breakfast, dropped DS off at a breakfast meeting, went to a f2f meeting, picked DS back up, took the dog for his vaccines, got a few things done around the hou... Read more
OA, depression, and jealousy
Wow. It’s been forever since I’ve blogged. And I don’t know how far I’ll get because my back is killing me. If it feels like this now, what will it feel like when I get old? Ugh!
I joined OA first of October through www.therecoverygroup... Read more
Till death do us part is a long time… or is it?
It’s been 32 ½ years since we made those vows. On days like today, I’m not so sure I’m willing to let him make it to 33. Okay, not really, but I’m am thoroughly disgusted with him today.
We bought a second rental house around the first of... Read more
A new doc & more
I’ve wanted to establish myself with a ‘real’ doctor for some time now. Around here, it seems like all you usually get to see are nurse practitioners or PA’s. Nothing against them, it just feels good to actually see a doctor sometimes. Anyway... Read more
Sodium or not eating enough during the day?
I was really fighting the binge monster last night. I won, but that was mainly because I was too lazy to go out and I couldn’t find ‘a partner in crime’ lol
So initially I was wondering about sodium. If I eat highly processed sweets, it r... Read more
Oh-oh, I think it's going to happen again
I’m REALLY fighting the urge to go for some Oreos & Ice Cream. I KNOW better, BUT …. I’ve not had the best of days. I sure wish I could say there is a good reason for my not-so-good day, but there really isn’t.
It started out okay. We we... Read more
So why did I binge?!
DISCLAIMER: Please know that I am just thinking on ‘paper’ and creating a record for myself. I’m am NOT looking for someone to try and fix me OR to tell me how to interact with my therapist, etc.

A Happy Mother’s Day
I have to say, I do believe this is probably the best Mother’s Day I’ve ever had. Mother’s day usually doesn’t get much attention around here; but today was different.
We learned that DH’s mom, his sister, her kids and their kids meet at a... Read more
I am one odd duck!
I’m getting in my usual amount of exercise with some plans to increase it some. My eating is well within range and the pounds are starting to drop again. Yet, I feel so blah and so down, I can hardly stand it.

Fire at work
I got a call from my boss about 4 am this morning. I had just gotten up, still in my rob and headed for the Keurig, when the phone rang. She’s says, “There’s a fire in the therapy room and we need all available staff in to help evacuate.”

Just a couple of things that made me smile this weekend
We had the grandsons… and the little one said a couple of things that made me smile.
First, someone asked him how old he is. He said, "I just changed to four …. from three and a half"
Then, we passed a truck and a police car with flas... Read more
Why can’t I JUST DO IT?
I KNOW what to do….
- take it one step at a time, one goal at a time
- say NO to myself when appropriate
- drink lots of water
- eat my veggies
- don’t eat in the late evenings when I know I can’t stop with just one bit
- exercise... Read more
Another weird dream
I don’t know what to think of this one. Should I be concerned; is it a warning? Or is it just the result of not getting much sleep over the previous two nights? Or perhaps it was just a compilation of bits and pieces of things going on here a... Read more
