Stress Log
Saturday, December 08, 2012      4 comments

I have started the stress log that I said I wanted to do. I only have a few listings so far. What makes me feel better about myself is that I have been able to write down how I handled the stress. I guess all those articles that I have read o... Read more
Stress
Wednesday, December 05, 2012      5 comments

I have been taking an anti-anxiety medicine for four years now. My family and I are concerned about me being on it for so long and the effects that it has on me. I went to my doctor last week and she recommended that I start weening myself off... Read more
Getting Back to Normal
Tuesday, December 04, 2012      4 comments

Thanksgiving is over. I am back from Alabama where I spent the time with both my girls. We had a wonderful, relaxing long weekend. The traveling took two full days and was a bit long, but so worth it to be with my girls. I brought my you... Read more
Disheartening Doctor Appointment
Friday, November 30, 2012      10 comments

I went to the doctor yesterday on my daughter's insistence for some health issues that I have been having. I was hoping for better answers than I got, but at least now I know where I stand and what I need to do. My first problem is that I ... Read more
The Concept of Time
Monday, November 26, 2012      4 comments

It seemed like it took forever for Thanksgiving to come. It took forever for us to get to Alabama to see my daughters. Wednesday night through Sunday morning flew by as I enjoyed the company of my girls. Sunday actually lasted at least two da... Read more

I'm going down to Alabama to spend Thanksgiving with both of my daughters. This will be the first holiday in a few years that I will be with them both. I can't wait! I'll be bringing my youngest back with me. She'll leave from here to go bac... Read more
Balance
Thursday, November 15, 2012      6 comments

Last week was a quiet week with not much going on. I was a little bored at times. This week is the complete opposite. I've been busy doing different things every day. I've come to the conclusion that I have to start planning some sort of sch... Read more
Time to Change Things Up
Monday, November 12, 2012      5 comments

I am actually taking time out for myself each day lately. I hadn't done this in so long that I'm feeling a little guilty. I will still take time out for me, but I want to get a little more creative with my schedule. I want to broaden my horiz... Read more
Restless
Thursday, November 08, 2012      7 comments

I woke up feeling restless today. At first I thought that I just needed to sit down and come up with a schedule and some new goals for myself. Then it dawned on me. I feel this way every November. It's partly due to the shortened daylight ho... Read more
Taking Stock
Saturday, November 03, 2012      10 comments

I started looking at my Spark Page today. The picture I have of just me was taken just after I moved back to Michigan. I had lost maybe 5-10 pounds at that point. I looked at my weigh tracker and it dawned on me that I have lost 50 pounds all... Read more

This is my third week of volunteering at a local food pantry that is literally just around the corner from me. I answer phones, make appointments, and make reminder calls to those who have appointments coming up. I'm still in the learning stag... Read more
Thanks, Spark People!
Friday, October 26, 2012      6 comments

I got thinking this morning. I feel that I have come a long way in the two and a half years that I've been on Spark People. I'm healthier and more active. I am more confident in myself and happier with who I am and where I'm going. I really b... Read more
Finally
Wednesday, October 24, 2012      6 comments

After about a year of asking, my doctor has finally decreased a medication I'm on. I've been on it for awhile. I was not given a direct reason for why I was put on that particular medicine and I never liked how it made me feel. The doctor balk... Read more
Getting There
Sunday, October 21, 2012      5 comments

I'm slowly getting into the habit of doing things to improve myself mentally. It's something that I have talked about doing for awhile now, but have been prevented from doing so by a couple of things. One was a job that I had that had crazy, i... Read more
