Trying New Things

Sunday, May 16, 2010      5 comments

I am trying to introduce new things into my diet, so I'm looking through stores, vegetarian sites, books, and my own tumbling brain for ideas. Today I stopped in at an organic grocery and bought a couple of kiwi fruits, some broccoli seeds ... Read more

I've made so many changes!!!

Friday, May 14, 2010      1 comments

Last night I sat down to review the foods I'm eating as a start to brainstorming other healthy foods I can add. Also to have a list on hand in case I'm hungry and don't know what to eat. This way I can glance at my list and remind myself of good... Read more

A Picture's Worth a Lot of Angst

Monday, May 03, 2010      8 comments

I've been feeling great lately. Walking much more, both in length and frequency, eating balanced meals, losing weight. Yesterday I went on a hike with some dog friends. One fellow took a bunch of pictures. OMG. I look terrible!!! I cringed to se... Read more

Surgery Tommorrow

Sunday, April 18, 2010      27 comments

Tomorrow is my revision surgery. Basically, the surgeon made a mess of one side during my bilateral mastectomy, and I look rather monstrous. I'm looking forward to smoothing things out, but am dreading it too. What if I still look like a freak? ... Read more

An Off Day

Wednesday, April 14, 2010      11 comments

Strange day. I feel down in the dumps, though I'm not clear why. Feel sad, near weeping. Seemingly for no reason. Am I sublimating grief for my sweet greyhound? Am I frightened about my upcoming surgery? Or am I simply having one of the chaotic,... Read more

A SoulCollage for Gryffin

Tuesday, April 06, 2010      7 comments

I am one who loves you always. I am one whose goofiness always makes you smile. I am one who follows you forever. I am one who finds joy in every moment. I am one w... Read more

This is not a race

Saturday, April 03, 2010      6 comments

A short while back I woke one morning to find that I was down three pounds. I was ecstatic. But ever since then, I'm showing a weight that is only one pound down, as if two of those pounds were just fooling. I figured it would straighten itself... Read more

Gryffin's Last Day

Thursday, April 01, 2010      24 comments

Today is my beloved greyhound, Gryffin's, last day. He's lost the fight with the pain of osteosarcoma (bone cancer) and I will let him go this afternoon at 1:00. I'm noticing all our "last" things. His last pain pills. His last pain patch. His l... Read more

Patience vs. Action

Thursday, March 25, 2010      1 comments

I'm continually reminded that I need patience, and it seems that as soon as I acknowledge that, things start moving again. Weird. I wonder if knowing that I need to slow down clashes with a knowing that I need to take the reins of my life. So th... Read more

That Was Quick!!!

Sunday, March 21, 2010      4 comments

Yesterday I was feeling discouraged because the scale's needle seemed stuck. I guess it was all waiting, like my tracker bunny, to leap in one fell swoop. As of this morning I've lost another three pounds! Ironically, I pulled The Chariot ... Read more

Patience Needed

Saturday, March 20, 2010      2 comments

I had a weird day yesterday. After pushing to create lots of new quilted bags for a quilt show this weekend, it felt like a huge let down to get set up and come home. I have no idea if my work will sell, as this creative outlet is new to me. I a... Read more

That Little Tracker Bunny is Off ...

Friday, March 12, 2010      2 comments

This morning I weighed in, and only a few short days after refocusing my efforts I've lost my first pound. I feel really good. Like a lean, mean healthy machine. I have to do some more research on daily caloric amounts, because the nutrition tra... Read more

Taking It To The Next Level

Wednesday, March 10, 2010      3 comments

I posted this yesterday on the sparktarot forum... When I started here at SP I was sticking my toe into getting healthier. I was totally exhausted from my cancer treatments, had no energy, had extra weight, and didn't have any energy for bi... Read more

Admiring My Crop

Tuesday, February 16, 2010      0 comments

I woke this morning thinking about a quote I read last night. "Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive." Harold W... Read more

Look Within For Integration

Tuesday, February 09, 2010      0 comments

I used my Aquarian Tarot for my daily draw again today. While shuffling, two cards jumped out, so two it is. The Star Two of Pentacles I've seen The Star before... Read more
