Compassion for myself

Thursday, June 25, 2015      10 comments

There is something amazing that happens when I help people. At least that is what I have found in OA and spark people and in my meditations and.. so many other places. I say things to them that I need to hear. I remember things I have forgott... Read more

A Ceremony

Today was my ceremony. In Marianne Williamson's Course in Weight Loss she is big on ritual and ceremony. It means every chapter has homework. It took a little while to coordinate this one. Last night I tidied around where we would do the... Read more

Letting go of Anger

In my meditation today our readings were about feeling our feelings, letting go of emotions and using that new space to allow new things to grow. So it was not a surprise when I did my ten minutes of silence that I "went to work". I used ... Read more

Touch.... and labels

Friday, June 12, 2015      8 comments

This morning's meditation reading, the first one anyway, was pretty hard to figure out. However there was a line that said we need to stop and touch things. I think that the author was talking about slowing down to appreciate them. In our dis... Read more

Rewriting history

Every once in a while I have an aha moment. This morning it was after meditation. During meditation I had tried to let my mind wander to possibilities and the message clearly kept bringing me back to "finish your weight loss course". I used... Read more

I am starting Marianne Williamson's Course in Weight loss. She is such an inspirational person to read and see in person and I was so surprised when I read the program she she spoke in Ottawa to see she had written this book. Apparently she wr... Read more

3rd page of pool exercise notes... walking

Saturday, May 30, 2015      7 comments

You don't need to work hard in the water to get a good workout and you don't need to swim. Water walking is more work than on land without the impact on your hips and knees. If you have an above ground pool it's great because you can walk ... Read more

What is your "Personal Fitness Ideal"Affirmation?

Friday, May 22, 2015      6 comments

My thread post in the Writing Diet was worth cutting and pasting I think. The discussion this week says to find an affirmation that reflects your personal fitness ideal and write it 5 times. LIsten to the "but... that blurts out" and convert t... Read more

Energy where are you?

Saturday, May 16, 2015      5 comments

I just can't get going this morning. I had a good start, hit a wall, climbed over the wall then sat at the base of it and munched on toast and tea. The toast and tea became much more interesting than the next wall. The walls are metaphors but... Read more
