Mine is definitely mixed. I had to stop seeing my family because of increased covid numbers, and sometimes I feel great, but other times I feel exhausted and sick. I got married and went on a honeymoon since I was using SP last, and everything... Read more

Ok so today I have to get serious once again,get refocused (again!) and stick to my plans. I've been loosely trying to do just that, anyway, when mood swings, health scares, a tummy bug and general anxiety will let me. I still have so much to d... Read more

My niece went off to college a couple of weeks ago and now she has the virus. She's being quarantined in a motel for two weeks, and my sister is beside herself. I'm worried about her, too, but even more worried for my mom and other niece and sis... Read more
Feeling down over several things I can't control

Most of the optimism and determination that pushed me to recover after surgery has dissapated, and for a couple of weeks now I've been fighting panic. Panic and not feeling great, part of which is because my eating habits deteriorated, too. Righ... Read more

I'm hoping it stays that way, for the rest of the month, and I also hope I'll get to take advantage of it by getting my nerve up to walk outside again. My knee is almost completely healed from the tumble I took a few weeks ago, but I certainly ... Read more

60 days, the wedding tracker says. Today I have 60 days until the wedding, and it seems like as good a time as any to recommit to what I need to be doing. My feet are finally much better. It took a couple of days of mostly resting from walking t... Read more
More feet trouble, and a power outage

The day before yesterday I limped around the grocery store because both of my feet started hurting, and I still don't know why. My left ankle is still swollen and although I can walk on it some, I can't walk on it too long without it hurting. So... Read more
Well now somehow I've slightly hurt my ankle

I don't know how, I was just sitting in the car yesterday with my left leg over my right knee and it started to hurt a little, and when I touched it, it was sore and swollen. I can walk on it with no problem but it does hurt a little bit. It's... Read more
Finding that balance

Yesterday I didn't eat enough for all the walking and dancing I was doing, and my body let me know quickly. Feel too tired and a little hopeless for no reason and maybe a little bit like a cold is coming on when I've been eating less? Sure sign... Read more
Yesterday was a win!

I didn't step on the scale, I ate like I planned, I pulled out the hand weights and loop bands, briefly but I did start with them, got thirty minutes of cardio and 10,000 steps, and got about 60% of the things I planned on doing yesterday done. ... Read more
Today I'm going to use the hand weights and the loop bands

I've had them for about a month and it's time to use them. I've been good at not stepping on the scale the last few days, so it's time to start another goal. It's now two months since I checked in to the hospital, and several weeks since I chec... Read more

The good news is that I had a small, deluxe cheeseburger for breakfast and not only was it absolutely delicious it filled me up until I still feel very full, an hour after eating. I wasn't planning on eating a cheeseburger for breakfast, but I u... Read more
I have a new goal.

I want to stop stepping on the scale every day, because I don't want to get completely caught up in losing weight instead of getting healthier and stronger. I know weighing every day makes some people feel more accountable, but I don't think th... Read more

Yesterday I was wondering how to get some exercise in when I decided to go with an old standby and put some music on and dance. I got 26 whole exercise minutes and I almost cried with happiness because I didn't think could do that. I had to tak... Read more

I got up and did my normal morning stuff yesterday and I finally got around to walking at a little after ten. I was doing pretty well until the cool down part of the walk, at which point I tripped over my own feet and fell in the road. I bloodi... Read more
