2013-12-20 My plan continues to be to consistently focus on small steps and decisions that will make me strong, flexible and vigorous. Instead of reaching for comfort food, I will reach for comfort memories and goals: skating at night on the canal, waterfall rapeling, attending dance and music festivals, hiking in the fall, biking on the paths under a full moon along the river...

Member Since: 9/9/2010

SparkPoints: 27,780

Fitness Minutes: 6,752

My Goals:
I am adopting a healthier lifestyle to rediscover the daring, adventurous person I use to be. I suddenly realized that if I can face cancer three times, I can certainly deal with the 'bonus' of excess poundage it's left me!

* My SP Start Date: Sept 9, 2010
* To feel confident enough in my strength and stamina to resume hiking and biking
* To challenge myself to do one new activity per month
* To generally eat nutritiously, log, and pay attention to how I'm reacting to food (emotionally and physically)


My Program:
@ Jan 2, 2014: Blogged about the 12 things I'm reaching for
* In 2014 - Reading and putting into practice Julia Cameron's "The Writing Diet" (I had put in on hold)
@Dec 20, 2013: recovery from surgery (again)
* Start incorporating gentle exercise
* carbs are not my friends
* sodium is not my friend
* sugar - in any of its forms, natural or not - is not my friend



Personal Information:
I guess these are more like my milestones:
* January 10, 2014 - Doc says no cancer found, only pre-cancerous cells. WooHoo - no treatments required!
* December 6, 2013 - removal of uterus, fallopians, ovaries because of pre-cancerous cells. Not sure if my "cancer free" status starts over now...
* February 13, 2013 - 25th Wedding Anniversary!!!
* December 3, 2012
Two years cancer free (which I count from the end of my last treatment for IBC).
* Nov 25, 2006 - total thyroidectomy, for thyca


Other Information:
You don't drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there.

All glory comes from daring to begin.

Life tastes better than food.

It's a good topic for debate - whether we are all perfect as we are... or none of us are perfect and that's the way it is meant to be. Hello! I would say happy spring but I heard the weather forcast for doom and gloom... more snow. I feel quite optomistic though. A couple of days of walking. Thanks for the blog comments. Hope things are good, hugs!

Head's up - Tatine and I are planning a meet up and decided to use Julian Cameron's Writer's Diet for discussion. Hopefully it will continue every 2 weeks. The first meeting April 9th at her house in Westboro. You will have an email from the Ottawa team as well. We may decide in future to walk and talk.... not sure. It looks like a few people on the team are struggling and it seemed like good timing. I know it might be challenging for you just to stay awake after work especially mid week but I'm hopeful you'll consider coming. Of course, I'm being selfish. emoticon

You're right! Typo - Markgraf They were a Canadian couple and I kick myself that Bob and I did not get one of their originals as a wedding gift to each other.... The view out our dorm windows was so like one of their paintings. They are not as popular now but I do love their stuff.

The Virginia Mountain pic reminds me of a Marcgraff

You are going to do what you need to do. I hope your book of thoughts for later will get full and give you lots of ahas to work on. Our street is still an ice rink but the driveway we tackled and other than the last 10 feet is pretty clear now. I hear Toronto is sold out of ice melter and people are being told they can sell extra to places that need it like nursing homes!
