The Dr. Oz Show.
Today was fairly easy at work although tomorrow promises to be rather hectic. I went walking in the morning which was quite enjoyable as it was not cold and was lightly raining. I left early for my appointment with the dietician; that visit was somewhat disappointing because my weight was unchanged from the previous visit. … Continue reading monday evening recap….

A lack of daily physical activity can lead to obesity, a major factor in developing type 2 diabetes - stand up and step away from the computer ! That is something I need to be constantly vigilante to make sure I get enough exercise. From what I read I can see I'm not alone.
I'm still working on my long term loose weight and improve health project; lately most of my exercise has been walking. I suppose the bike rides are over 'til sometime next spring. I checked my weight today and I'm still on track having lost another 2 lbs since last time I checked. I've lost a … Continue reading fitness note….
snopes.com: Pancake Mix and Allergic Reaction - this was in my email this morning; a story about a teenager having a bad reaction to mold in outdated pancake mix. Probably a good idea to check dates on stuff before you buy it and use it within a reasonable time.
RAPEX - THE ANTI-RAPE CONDOM - YIKES ! I sure as hell wouldn't want to be on the recieving end of this thing....
Yikes I really blew my diet today ! I had a deluxe breakfast at MD's and for supper we had pizza and various other items. The deluxe breakfast is 1,100 calories and I guestimate the other stuff to be at least a 1,000. Damn I better not do that again for a good long while … Continue reading Yikes I really blew my diet today !
I had my appointment with the Dietician this afternoon. I didn't gain any weight nor did I loose any. We discussed my eating and exercise behaviors and concluded that I need to cut back on the snacks; especially at work. I took my own BP on a do-it-yourself machine and was pleased to see some … Continue reading appointment with the Dietician
Slow day at work; I finished a couple spreadsheets and now my pile is empty unless I do some filing. I will leave early today because I have an appointment with the Dietician; guess I picked a good day for that. I'm hoping I didn't gain any weight 'cause I have been a bit lax … Continue reading notes….
Some more true confessions..... Sometimes I am somewhat forgetful. Examples would be when I go to the store to buy milk, bread, ham, and cheese; I might come back without the ham. Or other times I might go to the store for a specific reason and when I get there I start walking around the … Continue reading more true confessions…..
Internet Searching Benefits Middle-Aged, Older People | AHN | October 15, 2008 - this article says web surfing is good for the brain ! From my extensive experience, I would agee as long as you don't do it too much. I also suspect that spending too much time on line can exacerbate things like ADD.
NURSE'S HEART ATTACK EXPERIENCE - Smitty sent me this article in which an RN provides an up close and personal account of her heart attack....

I've been busy as hell all morning with a large depreciation spreadsheet. Now it's about time for lunch and a walk. My foot feels fine even though yesterday on my morning walk I stepped on a piece of wire and punctured my foot ! So, I had to leave work early to go get a … Continue reading thursday morning late…
Warning About Pimple Ball With Bell Toy » Dogster for the Love of Dog Blog - my friend Caryn sent me this via email and I figured I would pass it along to anyone who loves dogs, and that should be anyone and everyone !
Back from lunch now after a 35 min walk. I also walked in the morning before work. I need to ramp up my exercise and make sure I don't overeat as the past two weeks I have been a bit slack in that area, although not entirely so.
I'm working on this very large spreadsheet; an inventory for a liquor store. Amazing how much booze can be in one place, LOL ! While working on this list I came across a wine called "Fat Bastard" ! Did I read that correctly (I am transcribing a hand written list, poor penmanship) ? I did … Continue reading Fat Bastard !
I'm feeling poorly today; went to the doctor and got some snot pills and nasal spray and also got my Zocor Rx refilled. I hate being sick ! Not only is it not pleasant it also gets in the way of getting work done; and I am getting bogged down at work !!
I checked my weight this morning: 217 lbs. Down 3 lbs from last time for a total loss of 24 lbs since March 25th ! I'm pleased that I am continuing to losse, but it is a slow process. Of course, it is really a life long project; without constant vigilance it will come back … Continue reading Down 3 lbs…
