I had yesterday off due to parent teacher conferences. One good was, I went with my younger daughter on a college visit. That went well. She is still undecided where to go, but she has always wanted to be a nurse and work with kids. Secon... Read more

First, conferences went well. However, PTA brought in Chinese food and though I ate "smart", one of the two days, I am retaining water like crazy. I have no ankles so I'm drinking lots of water. This happened the last time I ate Chinese, too. I... Read more

Starting tonight life gets busy. I'll be "absent" for a few days. Keep doing what you are doing. Let go of the past, the negativity, the "small" stuff. BE in the moment here and now. BE the best you can at this time. BE the person you w... Read more

I did some canvassing tonight and it is NOT fun. People that are supposedly supportive, came off as undecided or refused to answer. I will finish it, but I won't do it again. Even more frustrating to me was my elliptical broke this morni... Read more

The nurse at church that takes blood pressures once a month gave me a couple of exercises that her daughter, who runs, does. She said I may hear a pop when I do them. So I tried it and I did hear a pop. I feel pretty darn good, so it would be ... Read more
Contemplating going to a chiropractor.

My knee is better. However, I have other "pains." My back, the lower right, is still sore. It's going on two months now. I really think I need to see a chiropractor. My gut is telling me that when I sat on the floor in a dress, I through myse... Read more

Today was "Fat Friday" at school. This is ALWAYS a tough day for me. There is always great food and lots of variety. I did well for breakfast. Whew! Then, came lunch and much more of a challenge. I was mentally ready! First, I a... Read more

My knee is still complaining, even when I use the elliptical. It's not as bad as when I run, but I'm getting frustrated. This change in my exercise is showing up on the scale which is more frustrating. My eating the past couple of days hasn't... Read more
I did great, until the sun went down.

I did great with the chocolate and the eating until the sun went down. I did eat over my calories, but only part of it was the chocolate. (I guess I'm not as strong as I thought.) ... Read more
A day of chocolate.

Today the National Council of Jewish Women were holding their major fundraiser. They have a chocolate tasting conference. YUM! I did well! I did sample, but I didn't go crazy! I brought a box home and the entire family taste tested it. ... Read more

Today I ran for the first time since the Double Half Mary last weekend. I'm still a little surprised that I did it and each time I see the medals, I get a little happy feeling. My knee is not happy, though. I ran a little under four miles a... Read more
Soup challenge.
Friday, October 10, 2014      17 comments

I'm in a "soup challenge" at school. If you eat soup 20 times this month, your name goes into a drawing for a $25.00 gift card. So I'm trying it. (I use the cards for coffees.) Soup does fill one up, but it is SO full of sodium that I hav... Read more

I need to clarify my blog from yesterday. I have ONLY received POSITIVE support from those on Spark! The conversation I referred to was with a colleague and she is just "that way." Spark must bring out the best in people! I really think i... Read more
