"Don't beat yourself up." You've heard that, right? I have. It never made any big impact on me. I always told myself that I was cool with myself. Well, I don't think I was. I never got too upset about eating 'missteps', but I always get on ... Read more

September Goals are going well. I'm back swimming regularly, and that is a big bonus, because I do enjoy the water. I'm extra buoyant and I want to check some of this girth, so now I want to focus on nutrition. This month, I'll try Nutriti... Read more

My last posting didn't stick because unexpected things came up. I guess there will always be unexpected things. These were just bummers: A young cousin passed, a big layoff. I hope I can figure out how to move past them more easily in the future... Read more

Monday, June 15, 2015      4 comments

Last week it felt like time to start again. I decided a focus. The focus will be career, nutrition, and movement. I was aware of these things last week. The toughest thing has been eating too much calorie dense foods in response to emotion... Read more

It is December. Already. It is time to look at 2014 and to think about 2015. I am reluctant to examine my accomplishments for the year because it feels like it was one stumbling block after another. Right now I have a sore right forearm and a cu... Read more

October was another tough month. I did ok with some of my goals, and not so good on others. I neglected the garage clean up because I need my arm and back in top shape for that. Something happened to my back and then my forearm. This also impact... Read more
