I feel stupid for letting the work drama get to me. And I forgive myself for being myself. Nice, kind, friendly and always trying. I need a glass bubble to transport myself around in. I had the talking part of my review at work and was stun... Read more

I had a venting session in a blog I wrote the other day, then I deleted it. I often use this medium to explore my own thoughts and help myself, and if I don't think it will be helpful for anyone else, I delete it. Trying to manage the stres... Read more

My husband had a physical yesterday with good news. He'd had some typical issues in the past. High cholesterol, borderline high sugar, and elevated liver enzymes. His current blood test shows that all of these issues are resolved now. He was ver... Read more

Just had lunch: premade vegan meatballs, jarred sauce, and pappardelle. I saw this package of pasta and it looked so pretty in the package, I just had to buy it. Delicious. My measured serving of pasta and meatballs. Bought at my favorite store,... Read more

I felt very stressed out over work last weekend, but this weekend I seem to have been able to set it aside and clean up the lingering paperwork in the office. We had a financial planning seminar at work and it set me to wanting to clean up, clea... Read more
So much for the Engine2 diet...
Friday, May 24, 2019      11 comments

After rhapsodizing (is that a word?) on end about the Engine2 diet, I'm here to report that I dropped out already. I made a couple of their recipes and they weren't good, in my opinion. I went to the Online Coaches who are supposed to be ready a... Read more

I've watched the film "Forks Over Knives" more than once. It's a documentary about plant-based eating and how it not only is good for your health and for weight loss, but also has been shown to reduce and even reverse serious health issues. ... Read more

Putting the cheerleader outfit to the back of my closet for work wear. I really dislike work drama. I was kind of keeping to myself at work, tired of these issues. But then I felt like I was being rude and cold so I was more friendly. I was gett... Read more

So I get to work yesterday after my stressful day at home with the condo surprise fire alarm tests, and get an email. It was the day for our fire alarm test at work. Too funny. I didn't mean to complain about the issue with the alarms, but ... Read more

Working from home today. This is usually less stress and fun time to have cat hang out at my side. But this morning, the alarm system in our condo cluster began going off in short bursts. I contacted my husband and he found out that the condo ma... Read more

I have been logging my food in and shaving off and replacing snacks, and it seems to be showing some results. Some of the vegan meals I am making have only about 300 calories, which seems a little low, and may account for my between meal hunger.... Read more

Being kind to others has always been high on my list of goals. But I am sometimes brutal towards myself. I remember writing a story in grade school “It’s Good To Be Kind!” It was about a girl who abused her “favorite” doll, and still expected th... Read more

Feeling stressed and insecure today, so I blogged about it. A couple of members gave me their support, sorry to delete the blog, and I did appreciate the support, but I couldn't stand to read my comments again. My job sometimes gets to me. ... Read more
