Here's my list for this year. I left the last one open. When I make my list, I always have so many ideas left that it's hard to decide on that last one. I also reserve the right to change any one of my ideas at any time during the year. The w... Read more

In the interest of improving body, mind and soul in 2014, I listed 14 things at the beginning of the year that I wanted to do. I tried to list things to do instead of resolutions but some still read as resolutions. I did not think it was neces... Read more

Looking for some motivation

Tuesday, October 21, 2014      15 comments

I have lost my motivation. I'm sure it is some where amidst the chaos of being a care giver for others. Unlike working at a job, the stress from care giving makes me feel that I am not in control. And that's exactly how I am behaving. So... Read more

My bad

Monday, August 11, 2014      11 comments

I have been so, so achy lately and it has seemed more muscular achy than skeletal achy. I think I know why. This is what my walking shoes look like. It's no wonder I hu... Read more

Went to the doctor

My goals were to 1) have lost 18 pounds. Didn't happen. 2) have a cholesterol level below 200. Well, I'm at 201 and HDL is at 68 so I'll take this one as a win. 3) have a blood sugar level below 100. Didn't happen. I can't se... Read more

Intuitive eating

or mindful eating, whatever term you use, is not for me. At least not yet. Not in the near future either. I always think I should eat. Perhaps I need to start at a more basic level and just admit to myself how hungry I am each time I reach f... Read more

Mid Month Slump

Friday, June 13, 2014      6 comments

I started the month well but this week I have really struggled. My food choices are just too frequent and poor quality. My exercise isn't suffering and, lucky for me, neither has my weight (YET!). My continuing OMAT goal from May is a veg... Read more

I'm Learning

Thursday, June 05, 2014      8 comments

On my walk this morning, I was thinking about all the things I am doing now that were sparked by my involvement on Spark People. I feel I am stronger and healthier than I have ever been and that sure does feel good even if the weight has been s... Read more
