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