Tired, But Victorious

Thursday, July 31, 2014








emoticon
Up at 6:00 AM (my Mr. lovingly reinforced the alarm clock with a kiss... it's a special thing when someone else wants you to succeed as badly as you yourself do, and will even sacrifice (waking up with me because today was hard, not the kiss) to help you do it.
emoticon
20 minutes of intentional exercise on the trampoline... balance compromised a bit so, instead of the routine, I actually JOGGED for 20 minutes STRAIGHT... never would I have believed that possible at this juncture.
emoticon
Decluttered for 30 minutes: went through last year's stuff, organized new school supplies on hand, and made a comprehensive list of what we still need to get.


Today I got to see how it would feel if my day was derailed by things out of my control, due to lack of planning on the part of others.

I was annoyed for all of a minute, and then I realized it was okay because I have PEACE, JOY and HOPE riding shotgun. For the first time that I can remember in a lot of years, I suffered no resentment or guilt over postponing my own plans.

My FIL is falling into dementia, and my MIL is having trouble realizing that her life has to change as a result. She had appointments outside the house, but neglected to arrange for respite care.

In the past, I would have (to my shame) resented the intrusion and used it to justify and explain why "I never get anything done", or I would not have gone because the guilt of leaving my life in chaos would have so overwhelmed me... and then I would have been overwhelmed with guilt for not going (I really LOVE my in-laws), and not have been able to function effectively at home. (See how my brain tries to kill me?)

Instead, two hours after finding out help was needed, I was off to provide company for my FIL while my MIL did her errands... and rather than being derailed, my day was enriched.

We had a lovely time. While FIL was a bit confused on some things, he was coherent and chatty. Another interesting phenomena... he NEVER forgets the Divine Miss O. He always knows who she is and he watches for her, and today (from all he told me) he carries her deeply in his heart and awareness. She is some sort of touchstone for him. He really enjoyed seeing her and spent an hour chatting with her, too.

Special things to note:
emoticon
My Mr. has taken on the spirit of my streak and has decided to spend 1 hour every day after work, advancing 'the cause'... renos may get done faster than I anticipate.
emoticon
I asked my Mr. to find 'Peaceful' (video in my blog entry, yesterday) on iTunes and put it on my phone... when he got home he asked, "Is this a workout song, or just something you really like?" Apparently I am now someone who has WORKOUT SONGS (never thought I'd see the day... I JOGGED to the tempo... just the right speed)!!! When I have a whole playlist, I'll post it, LOL!



Tha... tha... tha... that's all folks! Day 8 streaking DONE!

Sweet dreams, and see you tomorrow!

(I will eventually get the hang of getting to bed earlier... I HOPE)

May today and every day bring to you a ridiculous abundance of whatever you need. May you find peace within and all around you. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith and desire... a desire which even itself issues from God. May all your concerns, struggles, anxieties and fears fall like ashes as you rise on eagle's wings, SOARING above all that would hinder you along this tremendous adventure of being and becoming all you are created to be. May you answer your call and use those gifts that you have received to pass on the love that has been given to you. May the presence of God settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love beyond your wildest imagination. May you be overwhelmed by the grace of God as it simply "overtakes" you moment by moment... rather than being overwhelmed by the cares of life!

Time Sensitive Offer (Buck Books!)

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

I've been wanting to read this book, but I didn't want to pay the hardcover price... now everyone can read it for less than the price of a coffee!

(I read my kindle books on my PC)







"Death by Food Pyramid has received almost nothing but 5-star reviews since Primal Blueprint Publishing released it at the end of last year. It's undoubtedly a hit within the ancestral community, and I think it's an important read because it gives you, the consumer, the eater of food, the arbiter of what goes in your mouth, the tools to make the right choices and bypass the middlemen when it comes to interpreting science. Author Denise Minger and I want everyone to have a chance to read this book, so as part of a special Buck Books promotion, until midnight tonight you can get a Kindle copy of Death by Food Pyramid for just 99 cents!" MARK SISSON



Excerpt from 'Death By Food Pyramid' can be read here:

There are Eight titles offered currently:
Death by Food Pyramid
Official Stories
Saturated Fact
Cholesterol Clarity (What the HDL is wrong with my numbers?)
Dissolving Illusions
Cholesterol Myth
Vaccine Epidemic
Eat the Yolks





I got his one, too, LOL... books are my greatest inspiration, and my greatest nemesis... at least Kindle ones don't add CLUTTER (except maybe to my mind)!!!



Today, honour all you are, and all you are called to be!

May today and every day bring to you a ridiculous abundance of whatever you need. May you find peace within and all around you. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith and desire... a desire which even itself issues from God. May all your concerns, struggles, anxieties and fears fall like ashes as you rise on eagle's wings, SOARING above all that would hinder you along this tremendous adventure of being and becoming all you are created to be.

    LOL! I haven't eaten a 'wiener/hotdog' in at least 10 years. I do still eat bacon and sausage, but I pay BIG bucks for the high end, artisanal-made stuff. It really pays to make the acquaintance of a really good local butcher. I actually want to try my hand at making my own bacon. I found a recipe for smoking salmon right on the stove top that I think could be applied to bacon.

Enjoy your books! I read Liz Wolf's blog, and I love it!

The Week That Redeemed My World (and my heart)

Tuesday, July 29, 2014


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3BJ
jehjOGo

Helen Reddy - Peaceful



In the morning fun when no one will be drinking any more wine,
I'll wake the sun up by givin' him a fresh air full of the wind cup;
And I won't be found in the shadows hiding sorrow,
And I can wait for fate to bring around to me
Any part of my tomorrow, tomorrow....

'Cause it's, oh, so peaceful here!
There's no one bending over my shoulder...
Nobody breathing in my ear!
Oh, so peaceful here!

In the evening shadows are callin' me, and the dew settles in my mind,
And I think of friends in the yesterday when my plans were giggled in rhyme.
I had a son while on the run, and his love brought a tear to my eye.
And maybe some day he'll up and say we had a pretty nice time.
Oh, my....

'Cause it's, oh, so peaceful here!
There's no one bending over my shoulder...
Nobody breathing in my ear!
Oh, so peaceful here....




"Transformation occurs when you listen to the voice that calls out from your soul." CHRISSY CAREW



When I sat down to choose a soundtrack for this moment I quickly searched for The Rocky Theme, Eye of the Tiger, and several other kick-@$$ songs that people often choose for such occasions... and my enthusiasm for the whole thing dwindled further with each song.

Not one of these was right.

True, I kicked @$$ this week, but not in that in-your-face, conqueror-of-the-world way.

Sunday morning revealed a truth to me in a way I had not yet experienced it. It probably shouldn't have seemed so dramatic (I should likely have recognized it's fullness a very long time ago)... but it was.

PEACE, JOY, and HOPE will draw near in abundance when mindful, intentional, balanced living is my focus.

This week I very simply and humbly - and somewhat nervously - opened the door and invited them in (it seemed to me that they had been hanging out on the stoop, just waiting)... and they graciously came, sat down, and simply dwelt within my heart and mind. Quietly. Sweetly. Like the song.

(They even wiped their feet, and politely asked if they could sit down.)

...then, over the course of the week, they held my hand and dried my tears, and whispered encouragement as I daily fought every necessary battle to get to this moment.

I feel like I can once again "giggle my plans in rhyme, and I won't be found in the shadows hiding sorrow any longer... I am prepared for fate to bring around to me any part of my tomorrow."

Something that was broken in me is healing.

I don't know why now.

I certainly can't say where it will lead, but with peace, joy and hope riding shotgun, I have nothing to fear.

I laughed - deep belly laughs and gleeful giggles - when I toppled off the trampoline, when my arms gave out on press ups, when I found things I thought lost, when my family and friends rejoiced in the fledgling reclamation of my house, when the Divine Miss O, my Mr. and I walked and hunted treasure - I laughed - deeply, fully - this week more than I have in years.

The pressure in my chest is lifting (I didn't realize how heavy my chest felt).

Today, I know deep in my heart, that I am changed, and this streak is now my lifestyle. Even though I absolutely plan to continue this streaking exercise, and it may even get ugly here and there (I suspect there are a few more battles to fight), I don't need 100 days, or 300, or 1000 days to prove to myself I can do this. I simply now know I can.

Maybe it didn't happen before now because some part of me recognized the power inherent in it, and I did not yet believe in my own value enough to accept the gift. I allowed fear turn me away.

Maybe at some level I was still intent on punishing myself... regardless... I'm done now.

There's still a really long way to go, but here's a glimpse of what peace, JOY and hope look like in my world:


my dining table, and the biggest tangelos I've ever seen
(a week ago it was not obvious that a table lived in that space)



the weight cage that has been patiently waiting for us
(until yesterday the repository for all of the clothes I'm taking to consignment)



our exercise space



...because I've been streaking my whole life for 7 days now!!!








I was up 6:00 AM today as usual (I LOVE saying that)... this is still SO VERY HARD, and I'm leaving that D@MN sentence on my feed until I get an answer, LOL!


I did 25 minutes of intentional exercise: rebounder and 'Bring Sally Up'. My balance has definitely improved... I can do 10 minutes steady, without toppling off, and I'm getting the footwork... it doesn't feel so strange and awkward. I have little good-exercise-aches all over my body.

I am doing some form of intentional exercise every day of the week, and having so much fun doing it.

Oh! Today I had a really funny moment... every time I jumped on the trampoline I got a weird sensation around my legs. It took me a moment, and then I figured out what it was... my pants were jumping WITHOUT me, LOL! I'd be coming up, and they'd be going down. I'd be going down, and they be coming up. It is really hard to jump when you're convulsed with giggles, and without the cooperation of your pants! (...And, no, I have not lost any weight according to the scale, but my pants seem to think so.)


Additionally, today decluttering and exercise overlapped: my 1 hour of decluttering included lifting and moving over 300 pounds, LOL!

This morning as he was leaving for work, my Mr. told me that he had considered putting the weights back on the cage last night, but he didn't because he didn't want to interfere with my decluttering plans! Seriously, LOL! He said that (it's not like there is a shortage of things to do around here)! I didn't put the weights back up yesterday, because I thought they were in storage. He didn't put them back because he wanted to be sure I had enough to do.

Since the weights were not in storage, today I put all of them back on the machine, collected up all of the fitness paraphernalia (DVDs, resistance bands, hoola hoops, skipping rope, books, canned programs: DDP Yoga, Quigong, Brazilian Butt lift - don't ask) from around the house and organized the space so it's ready to go. I repurposed the Divine Miss O's change table into our fitness cupboard... carried it from another room myself... functional strength is not an issue for me, LOL!


The truth is, once I've done all of the above, I usually do even more, just because I've built a little momentum (see how that works, LOL?). Best of all, all that has been uncluttered has stayed that way (though there are fewer tangelos in the bowl on the table) and my family is respectfully doing their part to keep it so.

To further reinforce what I've started with my streak, I joined a team challenge for August that reinforces and builds on my streak very nicely. I'll talk about that tomorrow.

Oh! And someone asked what I am doing with my daily record notes. I originally thought I wanted to purchase a wooden cube box from 'Ten Thousand Villages' to hold them, but then my eyes spied the perfect-for-me vessel in my very own kitchen:








It's a half-gallon mason jar. I like that I can see the papers as I walk by. I've set it on my dining table where it catches the sunshine (sort of like a gem, LOL), along with the jasmine plant... to GROW.







Oh yes they call her the STREAK...

Just the Facts!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014









I was up at 6:00 AM. I wish I could say it's getting easier. Part of the problem is getting to bed by 10:00 PM... with the Divine Miss O on holidays, and summer evenings at a premium, it's hard to sacrifice the time for sleep (yeah, I know how that sounds, LOL).


I did my 10 minutes on the rebounder. I stopped trying to follow the routine exactly. Right now I am working on learning and remembering the footwork. After I have that down, I will do the same adding the arms. When I can't remember, or can't quite do what she is doing due to lack of balance/conditioning, I just keep bouncing (running on the spot, actually). It is getting easier, and I am surprised at just how quickly my balance and conditioning are improving!


I did my DECLUTTERING...

...15 minutes in the house... I found our weight cage. We need to rig something so I can do my 'Bring Sally Up' Rowing; and my Mr. wants to start lifting (New Rules of Lifting program)... I'm a ways away from that yet. We bought the weight cage exactly a month before we flooded five years ago, and have not been able to use the basement/it until now. It's kind of exciting.

...30 minutes outside (AKA weeding, LOL!). Very satisfying, and a little effort went such a long way to imparting an air of 'care' to the yard... such as it is... as much as the house needs renovating inside, the yard needs re-landscaping. When my Mr. bought the house the yard was already 'gone to seed'. After we were married I tried reclaiming it, but it was too far gone. I've taken a few horticulture classes on xeriscaping, but have not yet been able to go after my vision.... BUT, I've not yet given up!


I'm still working on my rooms inventory, and trying to make a workable plan that can be managed in 2-hour chunks of time. I'm also making two lists: his and mine, LOL! This only works, though, once I can clearly explain my vision. I am also setting everything up so that each day of the week has focus and balance... I'll explain more over the course of the next week.


Finally, we took our second geocache walk - an hour and a half - but got 'skunked'. The cache is in the middle of a heavily bushed area, and it got too dark to see well. We'll have to go back on a Sunday afternoon and look again.

We had a blast, though (and why I feel so strongly about developing a family orientation to exercise)... this was truly one of those exploration walks mentioned here www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_jo
urnal_individual.asp?blog_id=5735474
...we saw a falcon eating it's prey, we saw a Tamarac tree with all life stages represented, we snacked on wild raspberries and buffalo berries, we trumpeted our presence using blades of grass between our thumbs, we identified and talked about a dozen or so wild herbs (sage, marigold, goldenrod, raspberry to name a few)... I am completely SHOCKED at how much the Divine Miss O knows of herblore... she actually knew how to use these plants for healing!!! She is reading her way through a marvelous book series featuring cats living wild in clans as the main characters (allegory). Clearly my girl has an affinity for the medicine cats, and for Starclan (the spiritual leader cats). I have said before that I thought I was raising a Catholic Shaman, and I am more convinced of this than ever, LOL!

For anyone who loves cats, this series is a 'must read' (I've started). They are so very well written, and as I've already said, informative. You'll never look at your kittypet the same way, again:

    Apparently my blog needs an amendment, LOL... we weren't sprayed by a skunk (that would end the geocaching for sure!!!):

skunk
/skə
NGk/
verb
North American informal

past tense: skunked; past participle: skunked

1. defeat (someone) overwhelmingly in a game or contest

...meaning though we searched for nearly 20 minutes, we never found the cache last night... that's why we're going back, LOL!

    SORRY ABOUT THE SKUNK. HERE IS A FUNNY LITTLE STORY. MY SISTER AND I WALK MOST MORNINGS AND WE WOULD GET TO A CERTAIN AREA I WOULD SAY THERE IS A SKUNK NEAR BY, I WOULD NEVER SEE HIM JUST SMELL HIM. ANYWAY WE WENT TO GET COFFEE ONE MONING AFTER WALKING AND THERE WAS A HINT OF SKUNK IN THE AIR. SO WHEN I GOT HOME I LOOKED IT UP AND IT SEEMS THERE IS SOMETHING IN COFFEE THAT RESEMBLES SKUNK SMELLS. emoticon

Living Victoriously!

Monday, July 28, 2014

I know... it's probably too soon to claim 'victorious' in reference to my STREAKING, but a SPARKLing friend of mine has 'living victoriously' as her feed comment, and just reading the words filled me with JOY!

...and it occurs to me to ask, is it really premature?

If:

"The secret to staying motivated all the time is to set emotionally-charged goals - in writing - and to stay focused on those goals day and night. It's really your SUB-conscious that controls your behaviour. If you know what to do, but you can't seem to get yourself to do it, you've probably been giving negative or conflicting messages to your subconscious mind. What you think about repeatedly every day is eventually accepted by your subconscious mind and it then guides your actions on auto-pilot. The more you dwell on what you don't want, the more of it you will create. It is extremely important for you to focus all your thoughts on what you want to achieve, not on what you want to avoid. What most of us think of as 'realistic' goals are not motivating. WANTS are motivating. Visualize your goal as though you've already achieved it." TOM VENUTO, 'Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle'


...AND:


"The best dieting strategy for maximizing your fat loss, and keeping the weight off permanently, is to eat and exercise as if you’ve already reached your goal weight and are trying to maintain that weight with a healthy lifestyle." SPARK COACH DEAN


...then, shouldn't we do just that, every day of our life: live VICTORIOUSLY?


Something to ponder, yes?












Sunday was a GREAT day!

As much as I wondered Saturday night exactly WHAT I would do with myself on a Sunday morning at 6:00 AM (considering I had already gone to Mass), and even though I considered 'modifying' my streak 'conditions', I got up at 6:00 AM and discovered that PEACE, JOY and HOPE reign in my house on Sunday when I've lived intentionally the five days previous, LOL!

Who'd of thunk it!?!

Before my family woke up:

I emptied the dishwasher and prepped breakfast: paleo pancakes, bacon and peaches.
emoticon
I did my morning health protocols in a timely fashion.
emoticon
I got my clothes ready to go out later.
emoticon
Planned out my August goals, based on my streaking objectives (notice how it's all connected?)
emoticon
Took a bunch of pictures and prepped them for use in today's blog entries.
emoticon
Exercise time turned into cuddle/confide time.
emoticon


...ALL before 8:30 AM when my Mr. went to Mass, and the Divine Miss O and I made breakfast.

At noon I went to pick up my friend at her hotel (she's a high powered business executive who sits on an international board facilitating women all over the world in business... she stayed at a hotel because I don't currently have a guest room, and that is where her meetings were)... I can't wait until people can stay in my home, again.

We went for lunch at Bliss (is that not the best name for a restaurant?) and I had sugar-free, gluten/grain free paleo eggs benedict and a mango-basil lemonade (OMG!)... and then we went to the Farmer's Market.

We walked and looked for an hour, after which I purchased groceries for supper (Korean Short Ribs for the BBQ, fresh green beans, and kohlrabi and micro-greens for a salad), and then we went to a high-end landscaping and home décor shop... and I dreamed BIG dreams, LOL (we also walked another hour). For now, I'll have to be satisfied with a particular candle once my bedroom dresser is clear and ready again for 'décor'.

After I dropped my friend off at the airport at 5:00 PM, I came home and made supper... and here is where it got a bit dicey.

Once supper was out of the way, I was REALLY tired, and we still had not fulfilled our family activity expectation. Sure, we had all been active in the afternoon (Mr. and Miss O flew the remote control plane for a couple of hours), but it's really important to me to build an active family lifestyle. Again, we do a lot together as a family with regard to intentional exercise, but we're not consistent.

I finally understood Emerson when he said:






The only thing that got all of us out the door was the ever-enthusiastic 'trainer'. When I expressed my frustration, she proposed that we just walk as far as the school and check out the progress on the park re-landscape.

Well, to make a long story short, we had a blast! Once we got to the park, I swung on the saucer swing (if you have a chance to use one, you MUST!), we played monkey bar tag, and THEN... we spontaneously searched for our first geocache (we got the coordinates off a local website, and used our phone's GPS function/app)... and we found it!!!



The bushes that held the treasure! It wasn't easy to find because it was hidden in a large cedar, and we had no idea what the cache was supposed to look like. One person apparently searched for this particular cache for a year...




...but our hero (aka Dad/Mr.) found it... took about 20 minutes!!! Oh the excitement!




A close-up of the cache... we now have a better idea for what we are searching in future, though apparently not all caches look the same.




...and then we opened it! The idea of geocaching is that when you find the cache you leave a treasure, and you are free to take one out. Because our search wasn't planned, we had nothing with us to leave, so we did not take anything this time. I'm going to get a bunch of blank business cards and write motivational sayings on them to leave (or I may get some waterproof camping canisters and put paper scrolls in them), and Miss O would like to leave small toys... the Dollar Store should suffice for the purpose.




It really was FUN and exciting and motivating. We're hooked on geocaching, and we'll likely not go anywhere now without looking for caches in our immediate vicinity.



A bonus for me, today, was seeing myself in the picture above.

I haven't seen myself in a picture in a VERY long time... last summer maybe? And this is the first time I looked at a picture of myself in years where I didn't immediately feel sadness, regret, or judgment with regard to my appearance. I must admit, it felt really good!

Instead, I catalogued the improvements I can readily see: double chin nearly gone, I don't look HUGE (I'm proportionately bigger than my 10-year-old daughter)... my shirt is baggy, my XL jacket zips over my sweat shirt with room to spare, I have a distinct space between my thighs even though I'm wearing slightly baggy sweats (not visible after SparkPeople shrunk the pic)... in fact, I'd go so far as to say I look 'normal' sized, and I look really happy (though I still have those D@MN dark circles under my eyes, but I have been up every day at 6:00 AM for almost a week, LOL)!

I don't think anyone seeing me bent over in the bushes looking for that cache would have first thought, "OMG! Look at the woman's A$$ (maybe their second or third thought, but not the FIRST, LOL)... and I wasn't thinking about my A$$ either... I was a woman on a mission, and there was no 'bad moon rising'!"

I think I look like I'm living VICTORIOUSLY!

How about YOU?







Oh yes they call her the STREAK...

I noticed your's, or your husband's, Vibram/Barefoot glove shoes. You two are pretty cool, and Paleoesk.

These two statements jumped out at me as counter point to my hesitation to blog:

"set emotionally-charged goals - in writing "

"If you know what to do, but you can't seem to get yourself to do it, you've probably been giving negative or conflicting messages to your subconscious mind"

You are always nudging me...in an inspirational sort of way!
