• I’m a lot late to this as I’ve been thinking about a word for the year & mercy of all things is popping up

    I know that I expect way too much out of a broken body & it needs mercy, permission to rest & recharge so that I can continue.

    I realized after Monday at the Y that I feel better physically, mentally & spiritually AFTER exercising.

    I nee…[Read more]

  • Busy, busy, BUSY!!!! Finishing as much cleaning out as possible this week. Some of it is going very slowly as it’s papers and old letters. I was going through letters that I had written to my husband when he was deployed for 6 months the first year we were married (he was gone on our first anniversary). We were SO young! Some of those letters were…[Read more]

  • Very long! Greenville has set a date of March 15th for Randy to start work at their location (he’s working for them already here in Waco). We want to get the house on the market by the beginning of March. That means that all cleaning out and painting has to be finished by mid February so we can get the new flooring done by the end of February. Crazy times!


    And for some reason, out of the blue, my incision started aching. Not sure what that’s about.

    I had my usual (sausage egg mcmuffin) for breakfast. I am planning on going to the gym later. Not sure about (super late) lunch.

    Btw, I’m going to be on a CNN show! I’ll post the link when I get it.

  • I know hubby is sick which has probably set you back. How’s this week going?

  • Oh no, Robin! I hope he gets better soon. You guys don’t have time to be sick!


  • Today is not going so well. Hubby’s home sick with a stomach bug and I think I have it also.😖 But not, so far, nearly as bad as him. So I’m running behind on everything as we both went back to bed. I will be working hard to get my steps and liquids in today.

    Breakfast was some cheerios and blueberries

    I have no idea what the rest of my meals…[Read more]

  • I’m a day late with this, but better late than never! I got all my steps in and even added some additional exercise to meet my goal of adding some twice a week. Today it was wall push-ups. 25 of them to be exact. However, I did fall very short on getting my 80 ounces of liquids in.

    I had lunch with my sis and DIL It was a belated birthday gift…[Read more]

  • I’m tired. Hubby had a bad night last night so I did also. A bit of stress going on about his work. The program he was on ended with 2017, As of lunch time, they (work hadn’t started him on anything else. He was supposed to be starting work for the group in Greenville. We’ll see what happens. Hopefully, it’s just a slow start after the two weeks…[Read more]

  • Just a quick check-in. Things have been crazy busy in my life and things got pretty much off track. But today I got all my fluids in AND all my steps in! YAY! First time in over two weeks!


    (In case you are wondering, this is a good thing. I was SO BORED!)

    So the rest of this week is likely to be busy but that’s ok. Here’s what I have of a plan for this week so far:

    • Food: I’m going to finish up some chicken soup my boyfriend made with half sandwiches for lunches. We need to grocery shop next…

  • Happy New Year! I’ve decided that 2018 is going to be my year! This week is all about getting back on track. Tuesday is catch up on housework day. Wednesday thru Friday will be about getting more of my house cleaned out. Getting back to getting my steps and liquids in. Hopefully adding two days of exercise.

  • <p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>We had that same exact situation with my father in law and the woman he married after my mother in law died. I have to confess that I did tell her off one day. She was “telling stories” about my mother in law that were total lies. Unfortunately for her, the story she decided to tell me that day was one that I had…[Read more]

  • Hubby is sending in his acceptance letter today for the job. Packing and purging feels like it will never end.

    I’m liking Good Measures. Not much weight loss due to the mild case of diverticulitis. The foods that need to eat for recovery are ones that make me gain. BUT! Working with Good Measures has kept me from gaining! I haven’t lost but I…[Read more]

  • It’s been a long time since I posted here. Sorry about that! Things have been crazy here.

    I’m battling a mild case of diverticulitis and packing up and cleaning out like crazy! Hubby is sending in his official acceptance letter for the new job today. He’s on vacation until January 2nd and I can see my stress levels ramping up already! 😁

    We have…[Read more]

  • Last few days before surgery and your girl Nikki is STRESSED OUT!

    Not by the surgery. That is in God’s hands and I trust His will shall be done. (Still, prayers and positive thoughts, please!)

    No…I’m more worried about the stuff I have to get done BEFORE surgery. Namely, all the rest of the email and social communication for my job through the…[Read more]

  • Hey there! I’m so late, but how did your plan go last week? I saw that your hubby was offered a job. Congrats!

    How are things going with Good Measures? And with packing/purging? And with taking care of YOU???

  • I would put myself at 90% over this cold. There’s some lingering congestion but the fatigue has gone away. In fact, I was up LATE last night because I have slept so much in the past few days that I wasn’t really tired. Also, I went to the gym last evening and evening workouts always cause me to get a burst of energy that makes sleep…[Read more]

    So from what I can see you seem to be eating out a lot, which is probably due to the fact that you are super busy and likely tired after all you are doing!

    Is there a way to eat at home more easily? I know my supermarket makes pre-prepped meals that you just throw in the oven. Or you could buy a rotisserie chicken and a few easy sides and eat off…[Read more]

  • Donna replied to the topic December 6 in the forum Daily Check-Ins 6 years, 5 months ago

    I’m here & trying.  Life has been so challenging since 11/3 ( hubby had RNY with issues & a week in rehab) between hubby, wee one relapsing with cutting & the eldest with her issues, THEN realizing my mother in law is at her mortal end but just won’t let go (I’m too bloody much like her I fear).  Personality issues in a hobby of mine left me feel…[Read more]
