A day off, went fishing. This a.m. Chiropractor checked my POSTURE at my request. I often am not certain if I stand straight or in good form. REASSURING. What my mama taught me is still there. No matter what your weight the positioning of ear over mid shoulder, hip and foot is correct.. Easier to breathe when standing straight. I will make a foam roller ball to help with the fibromyalgia muscle spasms. Spark points has a clear demonstrations on how to use the roller. Someone mentioned the use of tennis bails to reduce muscle tension. I have not found any in grandchildren toys so will look at garage sales. Not only on a weight diet but also on a budget diet.

I found courage to post my weight today. As with every time I begin a "diet" my weight went up, 8#, I have lost 7 of that. I am pleased. I did not post activity today. I spent most the day outside washing pots. I have transplanted to larger pots. I am not waiting until fall to clean these. Most folks will put a bit of bleach in the water to kill bacteria. I used washing soda. I am allergic to bleach big time. When I begin plants 2013 I will rinse the washing soda off in vinegar water. I will be giving away many pots. I have plenty enough to choose those which match. A non-profit pick-up is on tuesday. I have one and a half boxes ready to set out. That more than matches the 7# lost on my body.

  Dear Optimist1848
Washing soda is a strong cleaner, Mostly used to roughen the surface of enamel or gloss paint when applying other than same paint. It is caustic. That is why it works. I wore a glove on the hand dipping into that solution. When I was done I poured the left over liquid on the weeds in the concrete drive. It works but with caution. Check the box for other uses. My daughter mixes it with borax for an unscented dishwasher soap. emoticon

I see the most recent post is not included with the others. That is ok because today I came on to recant the downer.
A friend had died, my unhappy brain was reflecting that the funeral was that afternoon.
All better now, alway patience and time and much love that day.
Back to outdoor time as the weather is good.

The after exercise snacks gave me an idea. Since I do "graze" with my unstructured schedule, why not set up these snacks for my meals? My body does not produce the many nutrients we need. I take many , carefully planned over years, suppliments to hold my own. Without a reserve, pain is often the signal I get to eat.
Now knowing that I am more active than I thought, tracking meals and receiving information I know I can do this. I knew the one thing I could control is what I eat because it is mentioned in child rearing.
Gotta move and get off my chair.
First is to rein in any activities which do not directly take me where I want to be.

I am on hold again, not an intended habit. I will learn to react differently. Not on a self destruct mood. not hungry which is a rarity so I will take advantage of it.
