Retirement - here I come!
Tuesday, April 16, 2019 10 comments
I'm so excited! My request for early retirement has been approved. Not only has the date been approved (the end of June 2019) but I've been granted a "package", which means that I will continue earning my full time pay for another year or more... Read more

I love shopping online. I especially love shopping for clothes online. Over the years I have learned what styles look good on me and fit my personality and lifestyle so buying clothes online is not usually a problem. I rarely buy something tha... Read more

I am SO excited about this intermittent fasting. It is the easiest way to lose weight that I have ever tried - and I've tried a lot of them. I'm well aware that it won't be easy for everyone but, as we all know, every method of losing weight w... Read more

Last month I said that I had a renewed commitment to me. That commitment is still going strong. I'm starting to see results, not just on the scale and not just in my clothes but actually in the mirror. As I got dressed for work recently, ... Read more

I was re-reading my old blog entries and came across this from 2012. I'm going to add my 2019 comments after each paragraph. I've been on SP for over 2 years and while I SAY I want to get fit and healthy (and lose weight in the process), I'... Read more
New mental attitude coming alive

I've been on SP for over 2 years and while I SAY I want to get fit and healthy (and lose weight in the process), I've done very little to make it happen. So far I've lost 30 pounds and most of that in the first few months. ... Read more

I have been up and down the roller coaster lately - mostly down (the easy side, right?). I finally went back to the gym, which is AMAZING. Anyone who knows me will agree with that statement. My son and I joined together and trust me, havi... Read more

I had a request to work three full days back-to-back a couple of weeks ago. Not a good idea yet. I was exhausted by the end of the second day. However, the timing was good since it was just before going back to my doctor for a reassessment of... Read more

It's been two weeks since I went back to work part time. I'm working afternoons only (from 1:00 to 4:30) and so far so good. My boss has been great and hasn't pushed me beyond my strength. He did ask me to work 3 full days at the end of the... Read more

I'm torn... I LOVE being off work and being able to do whatever I want. Believe me, I know just how lucky I am that, for the most part, I HAVE been able to do most things that I want to do. I recovered well from the mastectomy; I haven't been ... Read more

Third chemo treatment was easy
Monday, January 23, 2012 6 comments
"Easy", you're thinking? Really? Yeah, really. I had my third chemo treatment two weeks ago. I've been feeling so good, I kept waiting to blog until the side effects hit me and I could tell you all how I dealt with them. Well, friends, the ... Read more

Andy Rooney's death was announced last month. This little piece could well serve to honor one whose last few years evidenced great wisdom, though, at the same time he became something of an ornery old dude. If you will take the time to re... Read more
