Rest is the best medicine right now
Thursday, April 02, 2009      2 comments

My first day off in two weeks. Woke up still feeling sick so took an ibuprofen and a Sudafed. I like to be an all natural girl but I'd rather take Sudafed than get a sinus infection right now. It would be very easy just to give up for the next w... Read more
First walk in a while
Wednesday, April 01, 2009      2 comments

I did a two mile walk today at an easy pace. It felt SO good to move after being sick for days. And it felt good to take care of my body and to take a gentle walk rather than force myself to go to the gym and sweat hard. I can do that tomorrow ... Read more
Good books are good friends.

Where would I be without the good advice from the books I read? Probably the very best thing I can do to begin each day is to read from a wise book. It still amazes me how getting my mind composed in the morning creates a wonderful day ahead an... Read more
Does drinking more water help you eat less?
Monday, March 30, 2009      1 comments

An odd thing happens when I have a cold. I don't feel hungry even when I can sense that I'm getting a little weak and need to eat. Maybe it's because I can't smell anything so food isn't appealing? Anyway, I'll take the two pound weight loss tha... Read more
Choosing My Own Destiny

Work is frustrating this month. I reached the end of my rope the day before yesterday and have spent the last 48 hours in a dither of anger and tears of rage. I am determined not to waste my time on this anymore. I hate feeling like a victim. ... Read more

Fresh, healthy foods are said to have more qi, or life force. As you eat, visualize the energy from your food becoming part of your own life force, strengthening you from the inside.... Read more

OK, I had a bad week what with the Girl Scout cookies and all but I think I'm over it now. Have a salad stashed away for dinner and a great snack of apple and Babybel light cheese. I'm getting my errands finished, am working overtime and still ... Read more
Serendipitous Cupcake

A friend brought me a beautiful gourmet cupcake today. It was called "The Party Girl". Vanilla Velvet Cake with Buttercream Frosting. It was indescribably lovely. And, since I had a salad for lunch today, I didn't even have to worry about the ... Read more
I Am Old

So I had to cool it on my more intense cardio workouts these last two weeks since I burst a blood vessel in my eye and had "devil eye" for a week. This coming week I am going to try to step it up a little (again!) and hope that I don't sprain my... Read more
Annoying Husband
Thursday, March 19, 2009      4 comments

So, I missed my husband so bad when he was gone on his last business trip. Now he's home and it's SO annoying! Making a mess, demanding attention, not leaving me alone so that I can do a fitness DVD. Sigh. It's so nice to have someone to blame... Read more
My Lovely Day of Health and Fitness
Wednesday, March 18, 2009      1 comments

I went to Sports Authority today and bought a pair of inexpensive running shoes. I must say that sports stores are much more women friendly than they were even 10 years ago. Definitely more than 20 or 30 years ago! I love my new purple and silv... Read more

Here are some elements of a healthy relationship to food: 1. You feel happy and fully engaged in life when you are not eating. (Food is not your only reliable source of pleasure and satisfaction.) 2. If you are not feeling hungry, you ... Read more
Yoga rocks.

I did a nice, long yoga workout yesterday and felt good for the rest of the day. I do believe I am going to repeat this today! The recent cold snap here is making me achy and stretching feels so good on my joints. The deep breathing and resulti... Read more
Evenings are difficult for me
Saturday, March 14, 2009      1 comments

I went to dinner at a friend's house. She is on Weight Watcher's and made a delicious low- cal, healthy meal. Now I'm home, it's 8:47pm and I am going to do my nails and go to bed and read. It's good to read because I can't read if I've had t... Read more
