I can really do this!

I'm a graduate student (final stages of PhD), a teacher, and a lover of beaches, books and sunsets. Always busy, I have been finding that consistent exercise also functions as "me" time. I need to be better about not letting myself off the hook. While I may not want to go out for that run, I *never* come back regretting that I exercised.

I'm a graduate student (final stages of PhD), a teacher, and a lover of beaches, books and sunsets. Always busy, I have been finding that consistent exercise also functions as "me" time. I need to be better about not letting myself off the hook. While I may not want to go out for that run, I *never* come back regretting that I exercised.

I'm a work in progress. I struggle with insomnia, anxiety, and stress. I'm working on the idea that food is much more useful as fuel (and offers much less in the way of emotional salve) than I've previously accepted. One goal of this journey is to be present and aware, as well as to be kind to myself. This is a daily struggle, but one that seems to get easier with practice.

Thanks for stopping by. Not nearly as well-made as the original. Lesson learned. But it will do for mow. Wish I could go in the morning before work, but hat is just not possible, so back to Sundays for that. Still trying to get to the gym after work. Time tells all.

Hope all is well in your universe. Keep drinking the water. I have to find a better way to pace that, as I am in traffic for two hours comng home, and that just does not work!

Swim, yes (thanks to you), morning, no. Day got off to a late start, but you shamed me into going anyway. Bet you didn't know you had that kind of power, did you? emoticon

Thanks for pushing me. I had a late start, and almost did not go, until I read your note on my page. Thanks for that! Hope all is well with you.
