WEARINGTHIN's SparkPeople Blog http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal.asp?id=WEARINGTHIN WEARINGTHIN's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community SparkPeople.com http://assets2.sparkpeople.com/assets/nav/logo_spark.gif http://www.sparkpeople.com/ The Other Night I wrote about Peace. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6203538 I think it is very important. I have been thinking about it, and I wonder if in these times, we need a new peace movement. It is so necessary to have peace in your life and in the world around you. Imagine life where it doesn't exist. Getting to peace is a trick in itself. It can start with breathing, meditation and prayer. Life is so much better when you have it.. Glenn Wed, 20 Jul 2016 04:41:52 EST Inspired by another... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6202308 I just say Peace to the World tonight. Glenn Mon, 18 Jul 2016 01:18:30 EST "It Does Not Do to Dwell on Dreams and Forget to Live." http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6196235 This is a quote I read tonight on msn.com from the Harry Potter book, The Sorcerers Stone. <BR> <BR> Much of my teens and early twenties were spent dwelling, and not really living. It took for life to come along and knock me "upside the head" before I really started my adult life. Still a dreamer now, I feel that I also have partaken of much that life has to offer, and hope I have many more years to be a part of this experience called life. Glenn Thu, 7 Jul 2016 02:35:26 EST "I Can Do Better." http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6194982 This phrase comes from the world of neuroscience. I just read an article by neuroscientist Christopher Bergland that according to recent research into optimal functioning when it comes to motivation, this phrase, repeated over and over , is the most powerful technique for improving performance. Dr Bergland became a world champion triathlete by uttering phrases much like this to his self, winning three major triathlons in a row. Eventually, he was so obsessed with winning and improving himse... Tue, 5 Jul 2016 03:29:53 EST We strive in our own lives to achieve and grow all the time. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6193588 I am reminded of a quote I recently read: <BR> "Sartaj was thinking about how uncanny an animal life this was that you had to serve it and let go of it at the same time, that you had to enjoy but also plan, live every minute and die every moment." <BR> Vikram Chandra <BR> Sacred Games <BR> <BR> And when you are doing that planning: <BR> "The life of sensation is the life of greed; it requires more and more. The life of spirit requires less and less. Time is ample and it... Sat, 2 Jul 2016 12:28:24 EST Gym and Yoga so far successful. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6192146 New diet plan not so. <BR> <BR> Did 40 minutes at the gym on Monday. Then, tonight I did three segments of new yoga session, For diet plan, I am actually up 1.4 lbs from last week when I started. Still hangin' in there. Could be partly due to excess protein amount I am sneaking in. I'll have to closely monitor that. <BR> <BR> Side note: Our store was having a sale on this great Snoqualmie ice cream. Got a pint of Mountain Blackberry. I served my wife and I 1/2 cup each with some organic s... Thu, 30 Jun 2016 01:11:28 EST Gym Tomorrow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6190286 Then DDP yoga on Wednesday. The yoga will be important to get my balance back and walking better. <BR> <BR> Also, started my new eating plan last Wednesday. So far, no real weight loss. Probably to tweak it a little. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to this week! Glenn Mon, 27 Jun 2016 01:44:41 EST Minute Rice, part 2. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6188559 Many people wrote asking about my contacting of Spark Guy, Chris, about the MInute Rice ads that appear on the top of a lot of the searches we do for healthy eating. It was bothersome to me and many others that these ads are for a product with dubious health benefits, and they appear like a regular post. So I sent him an email, and am just reporting to those wanting to know the response that there was no response. The ads still exist, and I received no contact from Chris. Sorry, Glenn Fri, 24 Jun 2016 00:42:37 EST New Weight Loss Plan/New Exercise Plan starting on Wednesday. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6187306 I had heard about my 80 year old uncle having success with a new eating plan, and decided to adopt it to myself. So I went to a nutritionist on Monday to help me implement it. I will eat as follows: Protein and carbohydrates with three meals in addition to 2 or 3 fruits and vegetables each meal. Snacks: there are two, both consisting of a carb and a protein. And that's basically it. <BR> <BR> Then, for exercise: As I have difficulty walking since surgery last year, I was inspired by a Spar... Wed, 22 Jun 2016 01:21:57 EST Saw myself in a mirror while sitting at a styling shop tonight. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6184333 I looked as big as a house. I was feeling good keeping my weight under 300. (I'm 6'4"). But I really didn't have a clue as to how big I was. I think tomorrow I will set up an appt. with a nutritionist. I didn't want to go on a weight loss plan. but It looks like I have to. Wouldn't be able to live with myself without trying to get in better shape. Glenn Thu, 16 Jun 2016 23:39:41 EST Minute Rice? Really? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6181760 A couple of weeks ago I wrote to Spark Guy, Chris, about the ever present ads for Minute Rice at the top of our "healthy" articles. Minute Rice is a polished rice, usually white, that is about the unhealthiest thing you can eat. It is like eating sugar. White rice already has a high glycemic level, and even their brown rice is so highly processed that is must turn to sugar in the body right away. I told him we shouldn't have to see these ads when we are going for articles that will lead to ... Mon, 13 Jun 2016 00:27:11 EST Bad news: Bought a bag of Ruffles last night and a small chip dip. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6181215 Good news: It is the next night, and I have not finished the bag. This bag of chips (9 oz) will last three days. Sun, 12 Jun 2016 02:50:39 EST TV is a Series of Cheap Thrills!! part II http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6179928 Totally titillated is the person who buys all of the products, watches all of the leading shows, and participates in all of the leading activities that TV attempts to get one involved in. They have the car, the smart phone, maybe a laptop and an ipad. they take the vacations, eat the fast and slightly slower food (but instant gratification is the buzzword here). TV wants results from all of that viewing, and they get them. TV has become the backbone of our consumptive society. Glenn Thu, 9 Jun 2016 22:27:12 EST TV is a Series of Cheap Thrills!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6179467 And that is what the producers use to get you to watch the shows and commercials. It is a temporary boost of excitation sent to you over and over again. It's what gets you to watch for hours and hours. These titillation points affect the brain, and you get hooked on them like a junkie does his or her fix. They actually run all through the show. <BR> <BR> Ever notice how you know the difference between a made for TV movie and a feature film, but you can't put your finger on it? Part of it i... Thu, 9 Jun 2016 07:10:14 EST Anyone familiar with Statin Myopathy and exercise? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6173488 I have a form of statin myopathy where even when off statins for years, I have weakness and fatigue in my leg muscles. I've read that there have been a couple of studies done on athletes with said myopathy. They found that when these athletes train, their symptoms get worse, But athletes who don't train do better than this group. My own experience is similar to this, so I haven't been exercising. Anyone with the same experience? Glenn Tue, 31 May 2016 03:27:21 EST I've Had Enough!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6172833 Enough that is, of weighing 290 lbs. I've been here or 5 to 10 lbs more for the last almost 20 years. That has been my maintenance level after a 40 lb weight loss. But I have problems now with being at this weight. I can't do the things I want to do, and being lighter could help with those obstacles. So tomorrow, I'm painting in bold colors. I'll call my personal trainer, and tell him what I want to do. I think it would be best to drop 50 lbs. <BR> <BR> I don't yet know if working out wi... Mon, 30 May 2016 04:17:59 EST Eighteen Characteristics You Don't Want to See in a Person Seeking the Highest Office in the Land: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6167331 Name caking that more aptly describes the name caller rather than the person he has castigated. <BR> <BR> Muddying up the issues instead of contributing to their clarification. Using tired mantras to obfuscate the issues. <BR> <BR> Using phony excuses and lies to hide sharing of information about the candidate with the voters. <BR> <BR> Using shallow standards like physical appearance instead of measuring character. <BR> <BR> Making all of his speeches be about how much he is winning, and... Sat, 21 May 2016 06:04:05 EST The new data that comes out on weight loss is always full of such certainty. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6162580 A recent large scale study showed that weight loss with any staying power is nearly impossible. And it essentially said don't waste your time on weight loss, because you practically can't be successful. I wrote a blog about that putting to rest all of my weight loss efforts. I threw in the towel. However, I have my own example, which I also wrote about. I have lost 43 pounds and kept it off for over twenty years. So does this article mean I should just give up, as I seemed to do? Should I be... Sat, 14 May 2016 05:35:30 EST Remember that annoying presidential candidate I was avoiding? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6162202 Well, I"M BACK. I realized to a very strong extent that if you ignore annoying (and might I add dangerous) political candidates, they might just sneak into office. It is important to keep fighting them even if is only through online comments and discussion. You really can't afford to close your eyes for too long. I thank one of my British Spark friends for reminding me of this. Glenn Fri, 13 May 2016 13:35:27 EST There is a certain political candidate... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6161748 the most insulting one we have ever had, who is so annoying that I just want to outright avoid him. Yet the only way I can is by avoiding the news. Boycotting him would mean boycotting the news entirely. That's the only way I can see of staying away from this person. So for today, I will spend no more time watching the news or reading the stories that show up on my computer. I've got to put my own equilibrium above the need to be informed. Thanks for listening. Glenn Thu, 12 May 2016 21:03:59 EST AHHH! THe Reclusive Life! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6159834 I just read a blog about the reclusive life. It is something I aspired to in my twenties. I wanted to do next to nothing and have very little contact with anyone. It led to disaster for me. It took quite a while to patch my life back up. <BR> <BR> Now I've had a career, a good life with my wife and partner, a son and grandkids, a nice house and great property. And now, as I face the prospect (40 years later) of possibly outliving my wife, I see the reclusive life as pretty desirable. Bu... Tue, 10 May 2016 04:02:35 EST Newest study on obesity. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6158526 The study on obesity that just came out looked for six years at The Biggest Loser contestants who lost weight. What they found was that almost all of them put most or all of their weight back on within those six years. They found that by the end of their time at The Loser, they had a much slower metabolism. They actually needed to eat 500 calories less per day just to maintain their weight, making it near impossible to keep it from creeping back on. <BR> <BR> I am 6'4". Twenty something yea... Sun, 8 May 2016 00:51:21 EST WAKE UP AMERICA!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6155665 That's going to be my new motto as we go through this election season. Glenn Tue, 3 May 2016 15:25:05 EST HELP!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6155621 I'm caught up in the muck and mire of the campaign season, and it is the worst it has ever been. A leading candidate is just making harmful stuff up about the opposition. It is outrageous what he just blurted out there. And the outcome is starting to look inevitable. As those phony IRS calls say," They are closing in around me.", or something to that effect. I need desperately to get away from it all. I actually, for a few moments this morning, felt like I was going to burst. Maybe it mea... Tue, 3 May 2016 13:56:06 EST HELP!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6155620 I'm caught up in the muck and mire of the campaign season, and it is the worst it has ever been.

Tue, 3 May 2016 13:56:03 EST Nearly two years sober. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6151536 I quit drinking two years ago, largely influenced by my Dad's experience with alcohol. He wasn't what one would call abusive. He was a "lovable lush", yet during the day after drinking (which was nearly every day), he was kind of an isolated man who really needed his space. He would often be nasty to his wife or those around him. That is, until 5:00 came, and he was drinking his martinis, and was lovable again. It was what we thought of as the way of the culture he was in. Fortunately for... Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:51:34 EST I've missed blogging lately. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6149039 I don't really have much to say. I have been listening to music, watching TV (Yes, my wife got me a Roku box for my birthday, so now we watch online shows on our TV. This is out first TV in over six years.), cooking. Tomorrow, I'm going out to breakfast. I have a favorite place I go to once every week or two. It's one of the things I do to get a break from caregiving. <BR> <BR> A few weeks ago, I had some very sad news that was kind of expected. My younger sister died of pancreatic cancer. ... Sun, 24 Apr 2016 04:45:41 EST For me, reaching a good BMI, I would have to http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6139117 take off 32 lbs. I would love to leave the category of obese, just to be overweight once more. That would be 246 lbs, for a BMI of 29.9. I do think I've probably made as many adjustments to what I eat than I will. So now, I will be once again looking into exercise for my health. If it leads to weight loss, more power to me. "Whatever It Takes" is my mantra for how I will get into an exercise routine. Best wishes, Spark friends. Glenn Sun, 10 Apr 2016 12:35:47 EST No Exercise Program for ME!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6126319 I was doing some reading today on a condition I have called statin myopathy. I have a quite rare type, so that I have pain and tenderness in my muscles, even thought I quit statins a long time ago. It seems that exercising with this condition antagonizes it. It gets worse when you exercise. Therefore, the blog I put up a couple of days ago about starting a ninety day program will not be happening for me. I will be concentrating on weight loss and meditation and breathing for health, but not... Wed, 23 Mar 2016 23:26:18 EST Inspired by something I saw today... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6124888 I saw a video of a woman who worked out at the gym for 100 days in a row. She did it to lose weight, and went down 18 lbs..and 3 dress sizes. What it made me think about was having the motivation to stay with a gym program consistently for a relatively short period of time. My goal is to walk better after last years problematic back surgery. So I have decided just now to work out at the gym 90 days in a row in order to become a better walker. More distance and better balance are my goals.... Tue, 22 Mar 2016 05:15:05 EST Here's some you may well know... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6099470 And you may not know. But if you don't know them...Well, then let them work their magic. <BR> <BR> "Never put off till tomorrow what may be done the day after." <BR> Mark Twain <BR> <BR> "All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt." <BR> Charles M. Schulz <BR> <BR> "Whenever I feel the need to exercise, I lay down until it goes away." <BR>... Fri, 19 Feb 2016 00:19:04 EST I DID IT!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6097837 Just a moment ago, I reached 100,000 points! I'm one who always thought, "Who cares about these points anyway. They don't amount to anything." But I signed up in 2011, and really didn't start sparking till 2012. That has been 4 years of my life! I guess it is nice to be here at this point in time. I plan to go out to Jazz Alley in Seattle on Sunday with my wife to see a leading male jazz vocalist. We will have dinner there also. We were planning to go anyway. The celebration part is that... Wed, 17 Feb 2016 01:34:06 EST msn.com listed 101 motivational quotes tonight. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6097028 I picked out the ones that I liked best: <BR> <BR> When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down, "Happy". They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life. John Lennon, the much maligned hero of my youth. <BR> <BR> If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough. <BR> <BR> Let us be` grateful to the people w... Tue, 16 Feb 2016 04:45:16 EST I love my wife, but... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6096183 I also love my house, I love my car, I love going out to breakfast at this local restaurant (on my own) almost once per week where I love the breakfast I usually order, and I like the staff. I love creating the grocery list for the two of us, going out and buying the food, then preparing it, then cleaning up. I loved getting my education. I say all of this because my wife thinks she will pass before me, which may well be, but I know that life isn't ALL about the one on one relationship. Ther... Mon, 15 Feb 2016 05:33:48 EST The power of visualization. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6096090 Was just reading a blog about a guy who recommended using visualization to acquire what you want. It reminded me that I very often use visualization before I start a project or an undertaking. I will think about outcome ahead of time, then progress through the activity to reach that goal. It is very similar to what some track runners do before a race. It crystalizes your goal and outcomes, and makes it easier to proceed. Glenn Sun, 14 Feb 2016 23:49:24 EST New, self imposed, two week challenge for me. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6094411 Tomorrow, I will start a walking program. I plan to get out and walk 0.2 miles per day, using my cane. On days I don't go out and walk, I will go to the gym for a total of seven days per week, I will do this challenge for two weeks, then will stop and review my progress and where I'm at with it. This might sound counter intuitive, but dark chocolate will be my reward, and I will start an new bar for every seven days of success. Wish me luck. Glenn Fri, 12 Feb 2016 14:12:02 EST Happiness is... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6087277 Happiness is a frame of mind. We can all adjust our outlook and perspective to be more happy. And we can all watch over ourselves like a parent would for a child and do things for ourselves that we know will lead to greater happiness. Of course diet and exercise are important, but so is working on your mindset. I guess it's kind of like seeing the glass as half full. Then drinking from it, and adding more of what works for us to that glass so it is always there, ready for partaking. Happine... Wed, 3 Feb 2016 23:43:45 EST Is there a purpose in life? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6086450 In the Judeo-Christian tradition, if you believed in heaven, then as you age you may live your life according to the principles of God, and purpose may show itself. If it doesn't, there's always the afterlife to reveal the true meaning of things. It will all make sense in the end. <BR> <BR> But if you have detoured from that tradition, or never followed any of it to begin with, can there still be a purpose? If you believe in the scientific explanations of the Universe, that the Big Bang w... Wed, 3 Feb 2016 03:19:12 EST I like my writing a lot better when I'm opposed to something.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6084488 than when I am saying something positive. Lately, I have written some blogs with a more positive tone. I find that difficult. Painting a rosy picture is a very hard thing to do, and feel that you are contributing something. In fact, you run the risk of turning people off out of an envy for your positive state. If I am feeling good about things and write about it, who really cares? But if I can muster up the critic in me, my vocabulary improves and there is more of a dramatic impact. I like t... Mon, 1 Feb 2016 03:54:12 EST Thanks to all of you who commented on my diet blog. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6082845 I've decided what to do after talking it over with the person who knows me best, my wife. I am going to cut back on butter consumption (it mainly goes on toast and potatoes). I will reduce the amount of salad dressing I use. I will limit diet drinks to averaging 12 oz per day. <BR> <BR> Fitness wise, I will get up more often (I now sit a lot). And will go to the gym three times per week. <BR> <BR> That's the plan. Thanks for all of your support. Glenn Sat, 30 Jan 2016 04:20:02 EST Back to weight loss. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6081193 About a month or two ago, I wrote on this site that after over fifteen years, I was tired of my attempts to lose weight, and would just cruise for awhile, without a weight loss emphasis. But I'm up about 4 lbs, and this shirt that I really liked wearing last winter is bulging out quite a bit today as I wear it. I think I'm ready. My goal is to lose 60 lbs. If I get down in the 220's, that seems to be pretty good for me on my 6'4" frame. So, where do I start? I read about people losing 100 or ... Thu, 28 Jan 2016 05:06:35 EST It seems to be a time for "fools and fanatics". http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6078798 I just read an article based around the following quote from Bertrand Russell: "The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts." Glenn Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:21:05 EST It seems to be a time for "fools and fanatics". http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6078797 I just read an article based around the following quote from Bertrand Russell: "The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts." Glenn Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:21:02 EST It was 45 degrees farenheit here in the State of Washington today... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6077566 but I stayed home and made au gratin potatoes, as part of a ham dinner. Comfort food. It was very nice staying home with my wife. Glenn Sun, 24 Jan 2016 04:58:57 EST All of my strong ideas have left me. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6075812 I was looking through my blogs of years past. I was always coming up with things to chew on that I would write a blog on. I was never out of ideas. A lot of things grabbed me. Now, in the last few months, all of that has left me. It's like it was just lifted. I am left more content lately, with nothing to spout off about.. Go figure. Glenn Thu, 21 Jan 2016 21:57:30 EST We were doing it right all along. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6072327 I was just reading about a study done on 20 cosmonauts, over half of whom spent a year or more in space. I learned that their best coping style was to complain, rant, ask for sympathy. Then, the other crew members would support them. This was the top preferred coping style, and they learned it in their training. It made me feel okay about my own, slightly open book approach to my own discomfort. I have a very supportive wife, and I try to reciprocate when she has something to complain ab... Mon, 18 Jan 2016 01:47:15 EST There is a power. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6071523 There is a power in the Universe, that is so big and loving and patient that only some people experience. It might be in their heads, but I sense there must be something out there, in here, that is almost majestic. I know I am an agnostic,, and that part of me thinks it is all made up. But I do have to wonder, if not just a little. Glenn Sun, 17 Jan 2016 02:25:27 EST "I can't imagine my life being any better." http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6070296 This was a quote from a produce clerk who had made acquaintance with a psychologist who wrote for Psychology Today. It was refreshing to read as it reminded me of simplicity, and how living simply can lead to the greatest happiness. I have had it three times in my life. Once, while working as a waiter in a long established suburb of Detroit.
