Doing Some Mental House Cleaning

Friday, April 17, 2015      2 comments

It's been a long few weeks, culminating in an unexpected injury to my rib cage. It feels like a pulled muscle, and it's painful enough to put a serious crimp in my daily activities. I finally broke down and called a doctor to request physical th... Read more

Prep Time

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      2 comments

This will be a challenging week. I have to readjust my diet to prepare for a medical procedure early next week. Strictly low fiber foods, no corn, no fresh fruits or vegetables... Read more

Half Full

Sunday, September 28, 2014      2 comments

My glass is ( almost) always half full. On occasion I'll lose the forest for the trees, but I tend to wander back to the right track. I've learned not to beat myself up too badly. That helps.... Read more

Pain in the Neck

Thursday, August 07, 2014      1 comments

At my age, I get aches and pains. This is made worse by computer work, which requires long periods of sitting and extensive use of my hands. I often end up going to bed and not being able to sleep on my back because I'm so sore. I'm trying ... Read more

Happy and Healthy?

Friday, May 23, 2014      2 comments

Wow. I had a doctor's appointment this morning in Cambridge. I woke up tired to get to it in time and on the way back had a craving for a sweet meal. I stopped in at a Panera bakery and bought myself a cinnamon roll. I took a long walk whe... Read more

A Slow Reentry

Monday, March 24, 2014      1 comments

My health is almost back to normal. I'm still struggling with pain from a strained muscle in my left shoulder. I think I strained it by coughing so hard and so long. I went for a... Read more

Hacking My Way Through Today

Monday, February 24, 2014      3 comments

That's hacking as in coughing, not doing something to computers. I seem to have the cold that's felling Boston. On the bright side, my coughs are "productive," so at least my body's moving towards health even if it's inconvenient for me. I ... Read more

Me? Exercise?

Wednesday, January 22, 2014      3 comments

I'm a disaster waiting to happen in a gym. I'll start with a lot of enthusiasm and commitment, only to be driven out of the gym and the mindset by one set of physical problems or another: achilles tendinitis, knee problems and more. So, I ... Read more

Struggling With Sleep

Sunday, January 12, 2014      3 comments

I tossed and turned last night. I didn't sleep until after 2:00 am, which hasn't happened in a long time. I walked for 45 minutes, which usually knocks me right out. I did watch a movie - Yentl, not exactly a high stress movie - and wondered if ... Read more

Now Thats My Kind of Exercise

Sunday, December 29, 2013      2 comments

I love to walk. It calms my mind and tires me out enough to sleep better. I had more self discipline once and I've fallen away from the habit. I'm consciously building that habit back up, though.... Read more

I hope you all have a great day. I'm Polish, so our big celebration was yesterday, December 24. Today we'll enjoy a quiet day with the family. Tomorrow, we're heading back home!... Read more

Different Places

Monday, December 23, 2013      1 comments

I'm enjoying Christmas with my family in Western New York. My mother passed away in early November, so it's important for all of us to enjoy our time together. The weather has been crappy - pouring rain, cold and then freezing to create dangerou... Read more
