I recently got a new GHP, a middle aged woman who looks more like a frazzled soccer mom than a doctor. ^_^ She's very nice, and more importantly, thorough, and is one of those doctors who looks at the bigger picture. I had some bloodwork ... Read more

So I reached my weight goal, and now I'm not at all interested in continuing to lose weight. In my mind I figure that as long as I'm under a certain number, I'm not going to put any effort into losing weight. I'm not sure why this is, an... Read more

I have lost 10 pounds without really trying. I don't exercise, but I've done things like start to eat breakfast (usually a Fiber One bar), drink lots of water, order salads when I go out to eat. But I fell off the wagon recently and have ... Read more

But things have been rough- we had to euthanize our 14-year old cat last Wednesday, and one of our cars spontaneously decided to quit working the same day. I'll be back in a little while.... Read more

1) Get the blender. 2) Measure out a half a cup of that yummy vanilla yogurt you've started to like. 3) Throw in some powdered fiber. 4) Decide to put in half a banana, because you see them on the counter and want to use them before they g... Read more

Things have been rather stressful lately, and I've been coping by eating. I am making poor food choices most of the time (this morning I had two breakfasts, one involving doughnuts.) Intellectually I KNOW that I can't go on like this, but I'm ... Read more

I lost my driver's license and had to get a new one. My new photo is horrible! Now DL photos are notoriously awful, but I can't how much weight I've continued to gain. I wanted to cry when I saw it.... Read more

No, I have not fallen down a well. I'm still here. I've started walking at lunch! My iPod has a pedometer, and I've downloaded some mix tracks from FitMusic.Com. I aim for 3000 steps (about a mile and a half)/whatever I can do in 20-30 m... Read more

Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post ("Work Frustrations"). For night now, I'm just going to avoid the Problem Person as much as I can; she is in no kind of supervisory position, so if I ignore her (within reason), I can't get into ... Read more
Work Frustrations
Tuesday, April 20, 2010      4 comments

Okay, I need advice. Today a receptionist at work actually said to me, "You're not an experienced technician." I've been a technician for 2 years, granted, there have been some gaps in there, but I know my strengths, and I know when to a... Read more

I skipped breakfast at home today because we had no milk. I was still determined to not get the #3 (heart attack in a biscuit) at McDonald's, so I got the Big Breakfast instead (oh, irony.) I ate the eggs and hashbrowns, had two bites of... Read more

I recently kept a food diary (for a whole two weeks this time!) It was depressing. I ate out two meals out of three, grazed on candy, ate ice cream almost every day (2 scoops, please), no green vegetables in sight, meat at every meal, fried fo... Read more
