This isn't the Yellow Brick Road?

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Ah, living in the Land of OZ- are you lost yet? With everyone chiming in with a NEW better, healthier, happier, way to be- thinner, look younger, live longer? Its coming at us from the Winds of media, radio, TV, Blogs, etc. The list goes on and on. . .

My favorite is to just preserver! I take each with a grain of salt (careful of Sodium In-take!) Cut out the sappy, too sweet (careful of Sugar In-take!) Cut out the over-blown (careful of Fat-Intake!) Fill it in with some data research (real Fiber!) And in the end cut it all down to reality-check (careful of Portion size!) And find whats livable each and every way, for my life.

Now if I can only manage moderation in exercise? I've over done again trying to get out into this Spring type weather with the Hound Pack. Six miles in 2 days has thrown the right shoulder, arm, and that silly wrist into a tizzy! And I'm paying for it in last 48 hrs of pain, numbness (funny not Ha, Ha- having both!) and sleepless nights. So back onto the path and looking for that Yellow Brick Road to OZ.

    O what a pandora's box you've opened with the road to Oz analogy...

Hope everything clears up there and is all peaches and honey in no time...

    Sorry about the exercise pain. I tend to over do it in spring too.

    Good to see your tongue-in cheek commentaries, girl! OVERDOING is a big issue for many many many of us! A worthy challenge too! GO for it!

    I'm so sorry to hear your overdoing it has caused you such pain. :( That's no fun. It's so important to listen to our bodies, and know where our limits are. Even if it means missing out on something we really want to do! This is something I'm struggling with, and I think a lot of us are! Hope you're feeling better soon.

    Sorry you over did it! I also love all the articles and clips on "Healthy eating". Some seem to be common sense but then a week later another study shows another take. Hard to take some of it seriously. emoticon

  All things in moderation... hard to do!

The super woman persona has you by the hand too! I have another spark friend who was commenting on this idea of needing to be super woman and the pain and grief it has caused her. I saw myself in her words and see you in the same place. I wish I had answers because it is really about responsibility and doing what we think is needed and right, but when it causes us distress, it is time to get past it.

If you figure out how to get away from the super woman complex, send me a message and let me know how to stop doing it as well. In the meantime, please calm down the best you can and take care of yourself!!

Gentle hugs,
