    Feeling a little down today, I'm having great progress this week. But it is also that week for us women. Which means I doubt it will show much of anything at the end of the week. That always frustrates me, normally lately I can shrug it off, but I don't know if I can this week. I wish it didn't affe... Read more

    7/11/2014 12:33:44 PM, by LANCER1984

    It seems that time is suspended right now. I am watching as the clocks ticks by, tick, tick, tick - one slow second at a time. I'm wondering whether the news will be good or bad. I know that no matter what the Dr says further testing will be required to firmly decide the course of action. I know... Read more

  • Major chain reaction

    7/10/2014 8:49:11 PM, by LANCER1984

    Today was the day I needed to keep my mouth shut. My partner called and told me she had not picked up my meds. I got angry which mad her angry. When she got home she was angry and told me she had already been angry before I put the icing on the cake. So I listened to her be angry for awhile and ... Read more

    7/10/2014 8:34:35 PM, by LANCER1984

    I had to really work for my numbers today. I got only a few points on the bonus spin and new I would have to squeak out every point I could. I did almost everything I possibly could minus one or two things. I'm finding that this challenge I've created for myself is keeping me really connected to ... Read more

    So after several rough days...the flu, court, just generally not being up to snuff...I got a decent nights sleep. True, restful sleep! I could write a love song to how sleep makes me feel!

  • It's been a while!

    7/9/2014 12:43:37 PM, by MRSGROUCHO

    I can't believe how long it's been since I've been on here. Looking back at an entry from nearly a year ago, I'd say things are definitely looking up. I'm not as depressed or as full of anxiety. There are days, but they are fewer and farther between. :) I never really lost any weight but I did get ... Read more

    I remember bending over Sunday to do something. As I got up, I bumped the side of my face on a shelf. I didn't thing much of it. By Monday afternoon, the spot I bumped was a little tender.

    Sorry I have been behind in posting my progress with my streak of 150 points per day. I just barely made it on Monday with 150 but had a big day yesterday with 189.

    This recipe was totally awesome. I went for the milder effect so I added regular peppers. I also added a little bit of liquid smoke to mine and it turned out great. I just love anything in the crockpot and this was so easy to make. Thought I would pass it on. Serves 8-10 Ingredient... Read more
