I ordered a new fitbit (and I'm slowly giving them to friends and family as gift, to increase the network I am competing with ;), I'm going to engage in what I think of as "interval sprinting lite," and I'm doing the 100 pushups program. Did you know there's an app for that now? Which is good, because I can use the reminders a...

Do meditation. <BR> 2. Do routines. <BR> 3. Bring equipment up from studio for working on gifts. <BR> 4. See Dr. <BR> 5. Work on food plan, or writing for L. <BR> 6. Do affirmations for doing the transfer. (Then I can order new fitbits!) <BR> 7. Finish the email to S. and send. :) Tue, 11 Dec 2012 15:58:46 EST Go to bed with satisfaction. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5162831 All right! I have managed to figure out, yet again, how to write a blog post on here. <BR> <BR> I've had a lot going on! First, I started doing light therapy. It works brilliantly. Then I had a hypnotherapy session. Very effective. Then something brought me crashing to the ground. Let's just say that I could be more self-centered in a good way, more detached from the froth and storms that sometimes go on around me! My sensitivity has motivated me to take care of my own negativity, but not ev... Tue, 11 Dec 2012 04:08:09 EST Baby Steps http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5144448 The living room furniture is rearranged! Overall, it's back to the way it was before--with the couch on the shady side, and a yoga spot on the sunny side. However, we brought up an armchair from my studio, as I'd planned, and that's on the sunny side now. It gets in the way of the yoga space a bit, but nothing that can't be worked around... and I spend more time working on the computer than doing yoga, so the light matters more for that time. It feels different already. (As always... sunny is... Fri, 23 Nov 2012 18:15:44 EST I -will- be happy, I -will- be happy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5143616 Okay, I confess. Seasonal depression is kicking my butt. But in terms of the habits involved, they're not too hard to change. <BR> <BR> - Keep going for walks, but go earlier. Go before showering, since my hair takes awhile to dry (and I'm a klutz with the hair dryer). <BR> - Start evening routine earlier (!!) and go to bed earlier, even if it's to read. Turned on bedtime alarm on phone because lately I've been losing track of time in the evening. <BR> - Take sam-e for awhile longer. <BR> -... Thu, 22 Nov 2012 17:32:31 EST Hello, I love you http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5140702 Hello! This seems like an interesting project. Getting healthy takes work. It's exciting, and it's full of small victories, but I usually feel like I have no one to share them with--to some extent my husband, yes, but while he's on board with the lifestyle changes (thank goodness!) it would be a stretch to say that he finds it interesting. Besides, as you well know--the important victories are very, very small! Over and over again. <BR> <BR> So far I have: <BR> <BR> - made the bed <BR> - do... Mon, 19 Nov 2012 18:16:04 EST
