Hi Tori......Hope all is well....Guess what, now i am thinking about moving to Charlotte, NC. I heard its more of an upbeat city and there are tons of things to do out there. I am trying to find out what the job market is like court reporters out there but nothing yet.. See i know there is no place like NY, however, if i can come close to what the action is out here and find it somewhere else, i would be very satisfied...So what do you think of my new plan.....
Hi Tori. I am trying my best to go to the convention that's being held in Washington. Money is so tight right now, i don't think it's possible. If I am able go, i will definitely let you know. Thanks about the "Derm" situation.lol
Hope to hear or see you soon!!!
By the way, love the Vegas pictures.
You've reminded me to check into the swimming thing. A few years back a hotel pool let us come in early and swim in their nice warm pool, but then new owners came and we had to go! They completely redid the pool, and I meant to check it out - FORGOT!!! You know I'm in the boonies over here! It's just a little resort town in the Santa Cruz Mountains. There is a pool at the high school, but it's a drive, and I don't think it's warm enough for me! I know swimming would be good. I do have some really good glucosamine but haven't been taking it!!! I'll start today! So appreciate your info!!!
glitter-graphics.com Thanks for the hugs - I need it to power me through these two difficult genome depos I'm finishing up!
Tori, You're setting some super high goals for yourself. Here's my goal: To be pain-free!!! (and maybe 10 pounds down.) If I lose a pound, it's major! I have knee issues, elbow/neck issues I'm dealing with. When I exercise, they flare up so I have to be so careful. If setting a performance goal works for you, that's great. If you visualize yourself crossing a finish line, feeling fine - wonderful! My brain doesn't let me do that now. I want to be able to drive to and report a 100-page job and drive back without taking Advil! I'd like to comfortably fit in my pants and one day make the time to hem the two pair that have been in my closet for over a year now! I never had a weight issue until I turned 42 so I've been up in weight for ten years now. I went down a bit when I was working so hard to practice for the CRR two years ago. So that's good news for me if this recent gain is due to DRUGS! We'll see if I go down at all this week. Or if I just gain some muscle, that would be great. We both just want to feel good, I know! I'm doing my one-mile tape at least today. Maybe a walk too. It's so nice to have some online workout buds!!!
Tori, I almost posted to you last night after I finished another 2-mile tape, but I actually turned the computer off! So that's the good news - I'm doing them. The bad news is my weight is up a total of four pounds from normal!!!
Here's my question: Is it possible that the weight gain is at all related to the course of prednisone I took recently? I stopped taking it one week ago - so nice to sleep again! Also, I'm wondering if the improvement in my elbows is related to the drug. The weird thing is that my elbows weren't better while I took it, but they only seem to have improved within the last few days. Any expertise there??? I was taking the prednisone along with an antibiotic for a sinus infection. The last time I did this was five years ago.
Sounds like you are determined to get it in gear! Me too! These five pounds must go. I only have ONE pair of work pants, and they're on the tight side now!!!
Yay! Thanks to your push, I did my two miles in 30 minutes!!! Every time I do this I wonder why I can't keep doing it all week long, but that's the way my mind works! It's so good to get my circulation going. This is what my arms need more than anything. Well, aside from not working for a while!!!
I don't think I can do it in the morning, though. I seem to get my second wind in the early evening. So many of us reporters are in the same boat - we have an invisible chain from the computer to our expanding bellybuttons! It really takes the extra effort to move! It helps to have the support of others - thanks!
Tori, it's so funny. I just walked down the stairs to my computer after having my green tea and chunk of bittersweet chocolate. I thought, okay. See how good it feels to walk down these stairs. I'll check my email and put that two-mile walk away the pounds tape on. I can do it.
So to have your comment show up means I really have to now. Here I go!
I just joined the WW online. I did 30 minutes on the treadmill this a.m.
Tori, I'm so impressed with your rededication to fitness! I just weighed myself this morning and I'm up another pound. Gee, I guess I shouldn't have had those three Klondike bars two nights ago, huh??? You've inspired me to get it in gear - thanks!
Hi Tori. Okay,my email address is email@example.com. By the way i plan on visiting Raleigh the end of Aug or Sept. My niece lives in Derm and her boyfriend's family is throwing her a baby shower :), that should be fun. Anyway, hope to hear back from you soon.
Hi Tori! I am so glad i found you on this website because i plan on moving to Raleigh in another year or so and i was wondering how the job market is out there for our profession? Right now i live in NY and its kinda slow; however, i am not ready to work, i am still in school. I am hoping by the time i finish the jobs will pick up. Anyway i was wondering what the freelancing world is like out there because i have no intentions on working in the Courts, not yet at least. Anyway, i would like to invite you as a friend. You can send me a message through my inbox on this website. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
If you want, I can call you when I get back from the depo tomorrow and we can see about getting together. If you want to email me privately (firstname.lastname@example.org) your phone number, I can call when I'm getting close to the area .
