I don't do friend feed every day because I have to balance how much time I spend on the computer with other life endeavors. But today as I was checkout out the friend feed and seeing all the activity logged by my friends, I wanted to say this e... Read more
The Life I Want To Live - Chapter 3
I want to be that person who has the energy to say yes to fun things. I want to be the person who plans those things. I have been that person off and on. I'd like to be that person more often.
Yes, I know that life has responsibilities, is... Read more
Appreciating What I Have
Yesterday I was talking to a neighbor. We were laughing about things, and I told a story about how I woke up one morning a few days ago with what felt and looked exactly like a broken nose. Yes, my nose has been broken before so I know what it f... Read more
Go Hard or Go Home? hmmm...
Most of my life I've done things in a very extreme fashion. A pendulum that swings so far in each direction that it's been quite a wild ride. But here I am at 51 and starting to rethink things. Don't get me wrong, for about 13 years, as long as ... Read more
As I am trying to get my mind right after a few days of not really following the type of life I'd like to live, I'm not going to weigh in.
No, I'm not in denial. I'm not unwilling to "face the music" at this time. I'm merely making a consc... Read more
What happened & Life I want to live - Ch 2
Yet another diversion from my hoped-for series of the life I want to live. Or is it? Maybe I can tie them together, let's see.
My last blog explained that I fell off the wagon, but not how. To make that quick, I'll just say that my schedule... Read more
wagons and workouts
I not only fell off the wagon the last 3 days, I took a pickaxe to it and left it in splinters. Today I'm going to try to fix my wagon. I'm so incredibly tired, probably a "hangover" from not exercising or eating decently. So the way to stop bei... Read more
What kind of life I want to live - Chapter 1 - Exercise
I plan to do a short blog series about the life I want to live. This will serve as a "getting to know me" thing for my new Sparkfriends and teammates on I Matter, but also as a way of getting my own head straight, to remind myself that I do have... Read more
Balanced Scale Success
I'm pretty excited to report that I have made it to the 7 lbs lost mark. Now, this may not seem like much to some, but it is to me. And, somewhat more importantly, it marks me going below a weight I haven't been below since November of last year... Read more
Boxing does it again!
Aaaaaah, boxing! I love it. I haven't been able to do it for ages - not consistently for years now, but not at all for the last 7 months. I've had costochondritis, still do, really, but have learned to manage it so that I can do some things. Lii... Read more
Wrong to Right
This is the same thing I posted on the Balance Achieved thread in the I Matter team forum, so if you're a team member, you'll have probably already read this there.
I have been thinking, wow, I'm moving so much more than I used to, but get... Read more
There is a strange dynamic going on in my life right now. I'm guessing it's just adolescence making my (autistic) son do this, but...ok here it is:
Whenever I'm getting ready to exercise, he begins to "need" all these extra things. Like he ... Read more
Do More Right?
Until about a month ago, whenever I would forget to do my Sparkpeople spin for the day, I'd lose my streak, and it would make me mad. Mad that I forgot. Why? Why did I care so much? Today I came to the conclusion that maybe it was because it was... Read more
Yesterday I ate half a bag of Trader Joe's Booty (the cheesy poofs that are like fluffy Pirate's Booty). Yes. Half a bag. And that's not all. I won't list it all, but dang, I did it again. Fell off the balance board of life.
Why, when I do... Read more
Feb and stuff
Um, did anyone see where January went? And the weekend, what about that? I totally forgot to weigh in.
Wait, forgot or...knew it would be hideous? Yeah, my clothes have been feeling really tight for about 4 days. But the lack of weigh-in wa... Read more
