Wow, it's been a long time since I have posted! I started a new job in March and let's just say my stress is pretty much gone! I love my new job. It was a lateral transfer so I didn't have to take a pay cut or anything. Same benefits, I kept... Read more

Well, I did gain 1.2 pounds this week, but I expected more because I just totally gave up this week. However, my doctor gave me permission to stop taking coumadin now that it's been 6 months since my PE, so I am VERY excited! I can eat all the... Read more

I haven't been as tired the last couple of days. I am looking forward to a weekend of doing nothing! I am going to try to walk on Saturday and Sunday, see if I can get that started. My fasting blood sugars have been horrible, so hopefully get... Read more

Monday, October 31, 2011      5 comments

So yeah, haven't been taking care of myself, as usual. I had lost a couple of pounds, but I am back up those pounds and another. I have found that I just like to eat, and eat, and eat. And eat fried greasy fatty foods. No matter the conseque... Read more

Well last week not only did I not exercise, again, but I didn't eat well either. I guess the stress of work caught up with me. I WANT to exercise, but can't seem to get my lazy butt into exercise mode. I did gain almost 2 pounds. I saw... Read more
Guess I should update
Monday, August 22, 2011      5 comments

Guess I should give an update even though it depresses me to talk about it. Last week I found out my position at work was being reassigned. I am going back to a position I started out in here 11 years ago. I've been in my current position for... Read more
