Ok, for anyone who read my last blog, you know I just had to buy bigger clothes on Sunday. I've thought about it a lot, and really just tried to pay even more attention to my movement and my eating. And remind myself that it's really just one br... Read more
Today I'm facing some realities. For my birthday I "got to" go shopping, but guess what I had to buy? Yep, bigger clothing. This. Does. Not. Make. Me. Happy.
I want to be able to eat intuitively.

But I... Read more

I have a bizarre one today. I wish I'd had some kind of rough record of how long I let migraines derail me in the past. Why? Because this past one... Read more
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
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.

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
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
