Winter Solstice 2008 - Beginning again. No regrets, no guilt. Just take what I've learned from my successes, and from my mistakes, and start MOVING (literally and figuratively...), one step at a time. As my Buddhist teacher often says - about returning to the breath after being distracted during meditation - "begin again, fresh". So I'm beginning again "fresh" this first day of the new sun cycle. New day, new breath. Same goals, new commitment.
Lose 40 pounds by June 1. That's 2 pounds per week, beginning today (1/3/09)
1/3 - started on the Alternate Day Diet with food choices that follow diet guidelines from "You On a Diet", South Beach, and Sonoma
Exercise 30 minutes 6 days per week: Curves &/or treadmill.
I live in Oregon, about 40 miles SE of Portland, in the foothills of the Cascades. I'll be 63 in January '09. I'm happily married and retired.
Reading: fiction, non-fiction, poetry...
Gardening: ornamental shrubs, flowers, fruits, vegetables, et al.
Husbands: 1 (well, actually 3, but this one's for keeps)
Kids: 1 delightful daughter, 39
Friends & Family: I am SO grateful for the wealth of deep friendship and support in my life!

Thanks for your comment on the pic. I agree about the smiley face. It doesn't match the mood of the book, but I'm happy to get the darn thing out, and this pic doesn't embarrass me because it wasn't posed. Who really looks at the pic anyway?
