Tired, tired, tired - July 23, 2011

Saturday, July 23, 2011      5 comments

Came within a hair's breadth of having the condo sold. It's still not a dead deal--potential buyers had to go back home--but all of the anticipation has worn me out. Guests coming for dinner tonight. May just wimp out and serve some Whole Foods ... Read more

Thursday, July 21, 2011      6 comments

Haven't written for a long while. I have had a lot of "stuff" happening. In the end, it has all been good. I have learned how to let things go, when to say something and to say it in a kind way and then let THAT go too, and I am eating better. ... Read more

It's all about carbs - July 15, 2011

Saturday, July 16, 2011      4 comments

Went to see the nutritionist today. She gave me a glucose tester--one of those "prick your finger" type things. She showed me how to use it and we also looked at my mid afternoon glucose rating. Ugh!! Way too high. I am now learning that it's no... Read more

I guess these were going around a few months ago. I love answering questions so here goes: 1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No, my mother found my name in a baby book in the hospital. I was originally going to be called Laurie but then she... Read more

Finished another day with good Nutrition results. I only went high on one category--Protein!!! THAT was amazing. Took another very long walk with Mitzi this morning, over 4 miles. I chose a trail that had slight hills to it so that I can ge... Read more

Walking and talking - July 12, 2011

Tuesday, July 12, 2011      4 comments

This morning Mitzi and I went for a walk with a friend of mine along the Arroyos trail. So interested was I in our conversation that we walked 5 miles without my even noticing it! Of course it was all flat and all paved, a lovely city trail that... Read more

Doctor's visit - pre-diabetes and lactose intolerance

Monday, July 11, 2011      4 comments

Yep, that's what the doc told me this afternoon. Now, the pre-diabetes is just slight. But she is sending me to a nutritionist to work out a different way of eating. I know that I eat way too much sugar. In fact, I had thought a few days ago--as... Read more

Thursday, July 07, 2011      1 comments

No I am not into jewellery right now :) My spine is the string of pearls, according to Dave, my trusty friend, hike leader and qi gong leader. In our hour long session yesterday he urged us to think about our spine as a dangling string of pearls... Read more

Back from mini vacation - July 6, 2011 (updated)

Dh and I took off last Thursday morning on a spur-of-the-moment holiday to Alberta and to Glacier Park. Dh's work was closed because of the fire--thankfully now reduced from the huge menace to a snarl--so we decided to take advantage of that. Dh... Read more

Tuesday, June 28, 2011      3 comments

I haven't blogged these past few days as once again I have been faced with the power of wildfires. The Los Conchas fire is burning outside of Los Alamos, which is about 15 miles away from here as the crow flies. There is little danger of the fir... Read more

Monday morning, back in Santa Fe. Woke up at 6:00 a.m., brought Mitzi downstairs for a quickie, then back upstairs. Looked at the suitcases of clothes and spent 45 minutes unpacking and hanging. Checked for fire news--no recent news--then had br... Read more

Sunday, June 19, 2011      3 comments

Sunday morning, sitting on the balcony at the condo, enjoying the cool weather. I just cooked a healthy breakfast and we actually sat at the table and chairs and ate and talked. Too much of the time we sit in front of the TV. Anyway, we had a lo... Read more

Tuesday, June 07, 2011      3 comments

Mitzi and I continue to get along splendidly. Even though it is very hot here we manage to get our 5 miles in every day. In the morning and in the evening. She is a lovely dog. Still doesn't bark, walks at my pace, affectionate and friendly. Not... Read more
