Butterfly Dreams

Sunday, May 23, 2010      0 comments

It is the nature of butterfly dreams to up and fly away... Or soar on the breeze until out of sight. They may leave a hole, and a time to mourn. In the end they leave new insi... Read more

Empty Nest is here. New day dawns.

Yesterday my son left on the bus to start a new life many states a way. It will be close to where his father and step-family live, so he will have some support system. God has been very kind to me by allowing me to meet a wonderful man. He ha... Read more

Updates, from poison ivy to Wii Fit Plus

Monday, April 12, 2010      0 comments

I have been working out with my wii fit plus consistently now since I got it (20 days). I weigh in every day even if I don't do any training (so far just two days). The boon is that I am now more inclined to work outside of the home also. ... Read more

Still here

I went on a cleanse, the Whole Body Cleanse. It was supposed to be for two weeks but I made it through the first week. Maybe I'll try again in a week or two. I think I would do better with the powder form of the fiber suppliment as eight tabl... Read more

Apparently time to back the truck up! Too many changes too suddenly, I suspect. Friday was a bust, and Saturday wasn't much better. Calorically I didn't do too bad, but the choices I made were not for health! I didn't even get my 8 glasses a d... Read more

I have found my mantra: I choose health!

Wednesday, February 24, 2010      6 comments

This is the phrase that I keep bringing to the front of my mind when I find myself thinking of one of my old habits that I have chose to stop. When I see the donuts open on the confrence room table - I choose health. When someone cha... Read more

One week today for changes starting. Some decisions have been made, more to come. Stairs: still keeping up the twice a day climbing 13 flights or equivalent since the 2md of Feb Water: this will be day 3 trying to get 5 1/2 32 oz bottles a ... Read more

Day 4

Saturday, February 20, 2010      1 comments

Yesterday was day 4 for no coffee. No sweetners yesterday, No added salt either. No ciggarettes. Thats probably one of the easier things to kick since it was only between 1 - 2 packs a week. Today I cleaned out my Favorites on my food tr... Read more

Yesterday was day 3 for no coffee. Went pretty well, did have to take one headache tablet that has caffiene about 10 am. No artificial sweetners yesterday except in the soy milk. I still have a couple of cartons left. Some things I will ha... Read more

No Coffee, Day 2

Yesterday was day 2 for no coffee, and it was a little better, only had one headache that was taken care of with the headache tablet with caffiene. Not sure about today though, it's 5am and I already sense a tension in my head that seems to be a... Read more

No Coffee...

Wednesday, February 17, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday went ok without coffee. I did have to take a migrane tablet (has some caffiene) twice. I imagine I will need them less as my body adjusts to no cafiene. I went straight to water with TrueLemon in it. Still have to check out about malto... Read more

First Changes...

Monday, February 15, 2010      2 comments

Day 1. Or maybe 1/2 as it was this morning the decision was made to revamp everything. First change: I put the coffee down. Ok, so I already had two cups down and I may have to wean myself off as I have a headache at the moment! I plan on ... Read more

time to get serious...

I know that I've gotten much healthier while using Sparkpeople, but have recently noticed that one of the symptoms that I've had for years has not abated, actually seems to have gotten a bit worse. I won't go into that here because it's a bit mu... Read more

Woo Hoo! I'm in 14's!! I'm in 14's!!! Happy dance!! Woo Hoo!! A part of me is in stunned disbelief! For years now I have thought that 14s were my goal size, but I still have 30 pounds to lose. I really don't know what size I will end... Read more
