an other wednesday

Wednesday, July 10, 2013      3 comments

I have felt adrift the last few days, some nights sleeping less than four hours with thunderstorms raging into the morning. I have a wet basement today, but given what I saw on my bike ride this morning, it was par for the course. Everywhere th... Read more

busy but not gone

Been a few days since I have blogged. Got the iphone sorted out and have been testing task manager apps. I have started using wunderlist and have been more productive as I schedule and knock out tasks and habits. I am now using a CDMA iph... Read more

I wonder what's up with me. I dont have a taste for vegetables at all, or nutribullet shakes. I pushed myself to eat some honeydew melon yesterday. I still pass on the coffee cream. Im in short supply of pants that fit well, and it will soon ... Read more

black coffee and an iphone

Sunday, June 30, 2013      3 comments

the whole smartphone thing is intense. I remind myself, that now is the lower pressure time to move over to a new technology but zoiks! a new carrier and device and I dont get a signal inside my house. I will be spending time at the apple... Read more

no fat, less coffee

Friday, June 28, 2013      5 comments

I have been sipping on the same cup of coffee all day, without my usual dose of half and half. After skimming Kessler's book it occurred to me, I am drinking a little coffee with my cream, and the less cream, perhaps the less coffee. I hav... Read more

I picked up a few Kessler titles at the library, "The end of overeating" on audio recommended by carolyn sutton and a print copy of "Your food is fooling you or how your brain is hijacked by sugar fat and salt". A few interesting ideas - "O... Read more

mixed feelings about coffee

Wednesday, June 26, 2013      7 comments

I am torn about whether or not I should be drinking even a little coffee. I suspect coffee is one of those silent triggers that keeps me under optimal functioning. Today I made no coffee and I am a slinky-like in my energy level. Started ... Read more

I talked to a stranger tonight about the end of life. Why people avoid nursing homes. One of those brief exchanges that are heartfelt and open. At lot of western philosophies look to minimize suffering, but I prefer the buddhist view that suf... Read more

pocket change

Monday, June 24, 2013      6 comments

Here I am thinking about onederland, reminding myself I have a 5 pound focus. Which means I am focused on 208 not 199. What makes round numbers magic, for good or evil? The concept behind them? Why is 50 so much scarier than 49 for ... Read more

A.M. thoughts : Today, I am going to rise above. I am well- rested! I have a fridge full of fresh food and I want for nothing. I am blessed. I will make the most of what I have. I will follow the meals I have chosen, and finish the pa... Read more

up early for garbage day

I think of cleaning the house as in sync with following the spark program. I like the idea of purging my living space of unnecessary items including dog hair, but also clutter. I posted three things on freecycle yesterday that I dont need (isn... Read more

I am the daughter of two refugees and it is very hard to throw away food, especially when a gift. Yesterday a dear friend brought consolation pastries to help heal my ankle after a fall. I ate them, or we ate them with herbal tea. I have... Read more

Yesterday I picked up a belt sander for my home improvement projects. A neighbor wanted to get rid of it but not landfill it. There is an organization called Freecycle where neighbors can post or search giveways, and make arrangements for the ... Read more

2 years home, today

Monday, June 17, 2013      3 comments

Happy Birthday Kohosh. It was two years ago today you were neutered so you could come home. What a great perk that was, huh? By the different vets' and animal wardens' guessings he is somewhere between 10 and 6 years old. Read more

tripped over the dog

Sunday, June 16, 2013      4 comments

blessings in disguise! Finally I am forced to seek out alternative workouts. I never did those 10 minute 'spot treatments'. The bulk of my spark minutes were in working in the garden or exercising the dog. Now I cant do either for several we... Read more
