Game: How many people can need me at once?
Tuesday, January 12, 2021      4 comments

I'm getting a little overwhelmed by the number of things that keep me running to help all the kids (it was easier to coordinate when they all were young and at home), all the appointments and errands and work people blowing up my phone! I about ... Read more
Winter blahs

It's so hard to be energetic working at home with crappy weather. I get about half day of decent energy until I get interrupted, then I just can't get the momentum back. Spring can't come soon enough!... Read more

Visited my husband's 103 year old grandmother today. You would never guess her age looking at her! Whatever she did in her life clearly worked well, she's my idol. ❤️😁... Read more
Teenagers - enough said

Really though, I put a lot of effort into a fun evening for NYE and 14yo went out of her way to complain about how boring it was. I may resign from holiday entertainment and they can figure it out themselves. Rant over.... Read more

Saw my therapist yesterday. Working on anxiety issues. Took melatonin to see if I can get a solid night of sleep and return to work tomorrow with more energy. Post holiday depression is a real thing.... Read more

It's been a long time, friends. Pandemic weight does not look good on me. More importantly, I'm trying to set an example for other family members who are headed down a very unhealthy lifestyle path. Practice what you preach, right? Lol... Read more
Countdown Continues

This week I'm on a 14-a-day cigarette goal. I've only hit it once so far but at least I'm still at a lower overall count than last week so I guess that's still progress. I know quitting is important, I just have a hard time wanting to do it beca... Read more

This week was hit and miss on success rates. Met my smoking goal 4 of 7 days, water goal zero days, but calorie goals 7/7. Starting a new week tomorrow, moving down to 14 a day on the smokes which means I have to choose a specific occasion to el... Read more

Another show under my belt
Thursday, November 21, 2013      2 comments

Just got back from a 2 day trade show in Nebraska. I think I did pretty good, didn't over-sample and although I did drink a lot I didn't drink more than I could handle. I drank a ton of water so I'm calling this trip a success! That was my last ... Read more

Just wanted to give a quick update. My checkup went fine but I have to go back in December for the "woman" exam. :( The separation from my husband isn't going very well and I am starting to withdraw from everyone and lose interest in prett... Read more
The Doctor is In (unfortunately)

Tomorrow I have an appointment for an annual physical, which I last had done 7 years ago for my postnatal checkup after my daughter was born. I have had several close calls with precancerous lesions in my life so I hate these exams. Call me stup... Read more
Broken Record & Trade Show Season
Wednesday, October 16, 2013      1 comments

Before you read this, I should clarify I have not broken any records! I just sound like a broken record. Pretty sure I've said it a dozen times or more...I need to get back on track! I know what I need to do but life keeps getting in the way. I ... Read more

Friday was my official goal date to be at my final weight loss goal. I did't make it. I'm not discouraged, I have come a LONG way and am proud of what I've accomplished-but I see where I have made some missteps recently that delayed my progress.... Read more
Holy cow this week went badly!
Sunday, September 01, 2013      5 comments

If this week has taught me anything it's that I am nowhere near ready to stop tracking on a daily basis. I didn't intentionally do this, I was just insanely busy and traveled for work, visited my sister out of town, and got so distracted that my... Read more
