So I started taking the bus more to get out of the house and walk in other parts of town. Previously, I'd basically done yoga. Tons and tons of yoga. Walked every so often, not consistently. But then I figure: "oh, I'm walking more so I'll be... Read more

balance - I really need some just now

Saturday, March 22, 2014      1 comments

And it's spring, my least favorite season because it's so UN-balanced. Sigh. Exercise feels waaaay off this week; I barely got any last week, and this week I kind of accidentally did OVER the suggested amount (and felt it, to some extent). I'... Read more

I wanted to remind myself that yes, yoga's good for me. It doesn't show up as "great" if I just go by the fitness tracker because that tends to just focus on "calories burned". But I've practiced it since I was 16, and I do forget sometimes ho... Read more

My husband and I are both gamers, but we do it in very different ways, which is sometimes good and sometimes v ery frustrating. Like now; I have a character in Terraria who is in hardmode, and in need of new equipment. Hubby is helping me get ... Read more

Stress - of late, a stressful week. My doctor's had me lower the dosage of one of my meds, Neurontin, and lowering it is giving me baaaad insomnia. I'm prone to sleep problems anyway, you see. The weather's been all over the place too, from r... Read more

I'm futzing about with "Dwarf Fortress" some, because at last I'm able to comprehend it without having a migraine. No, literally I used to get way too overwhelmed to do anything in there - lol now I can at least sort of play the thing. Which I... Read more

So I utterly poofed myself out with the Bollywood Cardio Video - only did 8 minutes of it and it was still pretty tiring. I don't consider myself to be out of shape; I can walk for a couple miles, do yoga for half an hour, but this was waaay di... Read more

"The Worldbuilders Garden" and then some

Saturday, June 29, 2013      2 comments

The first thing you should know about me is I'm constantly frustrated by generalizations about health - this is changing very slowly, it's much better than when I was a kid and first diagnosed with lupus at age 10. But, I'm still faced with som... Read more
