my dream last night...

Saturday, January 05, 2013      6 comments

Sometimes you have a dream that is obviously your brain trying to tell you something. Last night I had such a dream. I dreamed that I was in a sacred space where the chosen method of worship was dance. But the problem was that there were thre... Read more

interesting and a little controversial

Thursday, January 03, 2013      4 comments

NY Times printed an interesting article yesterday about mortality risks and a BMI that registers as overweight--and they don't play out like you would think. Today, it printed an editorial about that study:

goal 1--to accept myself, just as I am right now, as a lovable person worthy of care and respect--and that includes self-care and self-respect. This will be the basis of the rest of my goals. goal 2--to separate what I can control from wha... Read more

Life Lessons from exercise DVDs...

Sunday, February 13, 2011      9 comments

Things I've learned from doing exercise DVDs: 1. Concentrate on the present; worrying too much about the past or the future will mess you up. I've fumbled more times than I can count because I was anticipating a move an... Read more

Grappling with my doormat tendencies....

Saturday, February 05, 2011      1 comments

Or co-dependency issues, or self-esteem problems, or all three. The point is, I've come to realize the past couple days that it's something that I need to tackle. For the past few years, I've maintained a friendly acquaintance with thi... Read more

Let's try this again.....

Sunday, January 30, 2011      3 comments

I've gotten lazy, not so much with exercise as with eating, and you know what comes next--the weight. It's not real bad right now, but enough so an acquaintance felt compelled to make a "nice-nasty" remark about how she didn't know whether a sa... Read more

Been a while....

Friday, August 20, 2010      0 comments

Things have been going on and I just haven't wanted to blog. So I haven't. Life has been very stressful these days, and writing about it means thinking about it which means getting more and more stressed. I'm just trying to control what I ca... Read more

don't let what you think you should have...

Thursday, June 10, 2010      2 comments

lose you what you have. It's good to dream, and it's good to follow your dreams. But it's not good to be so busy thinking you "should" be a certain weight or fitness level by now, or have a better job or a better marriage or whatever, that you... Read more

emotional health entry on forgiveness....

Wednesday, June 02, 2010      3 comments

I generally don't like to write blog entries about other people, because they're not able to defend themselves, but I do feel the need to write about a situation, so I'm going to be as non-specific here as I can. Basically, a close relative of ... Read more

May's New Thing: Hoop Dancing (finally!)

Sunday, May 30, 2010      4 comments

I actually tried the May New Thing the first week of May, but a dead hard drive, a very slow repair shop, and a busy schedule after I got back on the web got in the way of blogging about it. The good news is, we got back our 'puter with a brand... Read more

Well, I was going to write about the May New Thing....

Friday, May 07, 2010      4 comments

But my husband just called and told me that our computer has shown the dreaded Blue Screen of Death, so I may not be on for a bit. He's taking it to the store tonight and looking at what they've got for sale there, so who knows, we may be up a... Read more

April's New Thing--Bollywood Dance on Demand

Friday, April 30, 2010      0 comments

This is a kind of cheat in a way, because most of my energies in April were, first, Easter, second, a weekend trip with some friends out of town, and in the last part of the month, setting up what will be the May New Thing. More on that Sunda... Read more

you can't be ugly when you're real....

Monday, April 26, 2010      3 comments

except to people who don't understand. Our rector quoted this in the sermon yesterday (it's from the Velveteen Rabbit) and it brought tears to my eyes. (Awesome sermon for Good Shepherd Sunday, BTW, on "yea, though I walk through the Valley... Read more

I don't usually talk about politics....

Monday, April 19, 2010      8 comments

And I'm not going to make this very political if I can help it. All I want to say is that the Oklahoma City bombings were 15 years ago today. Sometimes, after 9/11, we forget about Oklahoma City, but today, let's remember. Let's pray for the... Read more

another reason exercise is so important.....

Last night I was starting down the BART station steps to the platforms when my heel caught on something and I pitched forward and started to fall. I managed to hold on to the handrail with one hand, twist myself around and grab the handrail wit... Read more
