    I have had a good day today, but I do have problems/issues/hurdles with getting to posting anything between Friday and Monday nights (that is when I am off from my UPS job). That does not mean that I have had bad food days or something, seems like I just don't want to get on the computer. I have to ... Read more

    10/29/2014 11:31:17 PM, by CALAMITIE

    I did not have a great night last night. My restless legs bothered me quite a bit and I did remember to take the drugs for them. So that was not the problem. But this morning when I did sleep late I was rudely woke up by the phone and my parents where having a major melt down. They had gotten a ... Read more

    I am grateful that I can put one foot in front of the other and walk to a destination without pain. That is something I don't spend nearly enough time appreciating. The muscles supporting my knees are strong. Several years ago, I had to give up my walking regimen because my left knee hurt so ... Read more

  • I'm starting to love the after feeling of my workouts! Did I say that out loud?

    10/29/2014 10:58:44 PM, by BORNTOTEACH2

    I'm still not at a point that I'm excited about working out, but I am craving the after feeling. I find that if I just act like it's not a choice and it has to be done as part of the day I don't over think it and have success. I've been doing really well with the diabetic diet as long as I cook ah... Read more

    10/29/2014 10:39:11 PM, by MIMULUSBUG

    Well my sweet tooth was calling so had to bake some oat meal cookies tonight. I've not been buying grocery store cookies, cakes, etc. to take home. In stead if I really have a craving I bake it from scratch. I figure if the craving doesn't go away after a couple of hours, home made cookies or c... Read more

    My neighbor just told me someone had dropped off a dozen chocolate cupcakes for her. That kicked up an uncontrollable desire to have one. She said I could have one tomorrow.

TOM is definitely going to come soon and I have felt bloated for that reason for a few days. The main reason it is so disappointing to... Read more
