My fibro is flaring today and I am very stressed but I have decided to take a positive approach to this new month. Lots of fun/exciting/stressful things are going on but that is just my life so I can either be out of sorts and let the blues take... Read more

Monitor and Adjust

Wednesday, September 11, 2013      0 comments

For years as a teacher this was almost a mantra. You never know when plans go right out the window. It seems appropriate to make that statement on this day in particular, 9-11. So many plans were destroyed or at the very least postponed that day... Read more

This fourth day might have been a little easier than the past three. I know that in a few days my morning walks will have to be adjusted due to events happening but... I will find a way to get in my time ( treadmill possibly). I do enjoy walking... Read more

Back in the Saddle again

Saturday, September 07, 2013      0 comments

Getting back into a routine. Why is it so hard to do the right things when it comes to health and well being? The good voice in my head can't seem to shout down the bad voice when it comes to food choices and activity. Working on it though--step... Read more

Put one foot in front of the other

Saturday, February 02, 2013      2 comments

For the past two weeks I have made a deliberate effort to get the fitbit to 10,000 steps or more each day. I have made many trips to retrieve or carry things that in the past I would not have made. I do like to multitask so I would have instead ... Read more

Proud of myself

I am thrilled that I got up and got on the treadmill this morning first thing. I did 2 miles (35 minutes). I will get faster. But for today, I accomplished something toward my plan. Not just sitting and wishing but moving.... Read more

Thrilling Thursday

I stuck to my plan on Tuesday for the most part. I did eat some chips with dips and other "snacky" foods but I noticed when I put all our treats out that I had managed to eliminate desserts entirely. Small steps--- I drank water and decaf tea ... Read more

I am so excited to start this year off! This is the year I get healthy. For my goals to be reached I have a plan-- It is not a wish or a dream, it is a down and dirty plan. My doctor suggested picking no more than 3 things to work on each week s... Read more

I have company coming in a few days so I decided to clean out some boxes that were bothering me. UGH-- I have started using a fitbit tracker (which I love) and last night discovered why my legs were bothering me. I had gone up and down stairs 25... Read more

Adjustment necessary

Monday, June 25, 2012      0 comments

Trip over. Back home. A couple of reflections from trip-- 1. plan and prepare but always be open to adjustment. (You might miss out on something wonderful if you don't) 2. Be aware of your weight challenges and do what you can when on a trip but... Read more
