Thursday, January 12, 2012      3 comments

Was really sweet yesterday. He took me shopping for a new pair of jeans and work pants, and he also bought me a more durable accordian folder for my papers (the paper one was way beyond usage). I figured a way to get my work pants - no choice,... Read more

So, I had my first visit with the therapist and go back two times next week. Basically, my thumb muscle has atropied a bit so she gave me some exercises to do three times a day. She also told me to put ice on my hand after each work out. ... Read more

So I got a call yesterday from the therapist and I have been cleared by insurance of workman's comp to get in my six sessions. Still haven't heard from the guy at corporate yet - even though he told me he would call with a follow-up letter - bu... Read more
January 9 - Time to get going
Monday, January 09, 2012      1 comments

You know, I've been with Spark People for just over three years now and I am no where near where I am supposed to be. Is that SP's fault? Nope - it's mine....by allowing "life" to get in the way. The first year, I had such motivation th... Read more
Jan. 8 - Making an Effort
Sunday, January 08, 2012      1 comments

I have to say, I am quite proud of my efforts yesterday. I made myself eat better, in spite of not always being fond of healthy food. I had tomato, broccoli and spinach on my salad. (Ugh) Love fruit....just not wild about most veggies, unfor... Read more

Spoke to the Workman's Comp Division of Target yesterday and he admitted that because of the delay in reporting the injury, I could be denied coverage for medical treatment. He was really very nice and I was totally honest with him about WHY I ... Read more

And let's hope it IS a prosperous and happy new year for us all...and not the doomsday year all the "2012 end of the world" people are saying. I personally don't believe it will be "the end of the world" - at least, not physcially, but I do... Read more
December 31 - New Year's Resolution
Saturday, December 31, 2011      1 comments

Have you made yours? I usually don't make one but prefer to reach for goals. Perhaps it's just a matter of semantics, but making "New Year Resolutions" - for me, anyway - is just setting myself up for a "fall". Instead, I prefer to make ... Read more

With the new computer, I don't have access to Word - something I have to either find to download or buy the program. In the meantime, I am using this format to be able to copy and paste at a later date, so I don't expect anyone to really respon... Read more
