Has it been a month already? Mindfulness wrap-up
Wow, February went by quickly! I guess that's the norm for such a short month....
I think my mindful eating has gone pretty well. I do find myself distracted at times, but have been noticing that more, and making an effort at those times ... Read more

one week of mindful eating
I was pondering as I walked home from work the other day how focusing on being mindful while eating was moving into other parts of my life. I have been focusing more on the present moment not only while eating, but also while walking, working o... Read more
February goal(s) and reviewing January
Just looked back at my January goal blog to see how I did. My January goal was to pick up my knitting again, and I set my goal at knitting at least 3 days a week. I nailed it! I put it on my tracker, and made more than 3 days every week in Ja... Read more
keeping it simple
It's been more than a week since I've blogged, and a busy week it's been!
I did get some knitting done 6/7 days, so that's one for the "win" column, since my goal is 3 days a week. Read more
Yesterday was a low key, hang-out-at-home-and-do-nothin
g kind of day...I think we all need those every now and again. I'm not sure if it was a bit of a hangover from the yoga/facial (she did a fairly deep massage, especially my shoulder/nec... Read more
change of focus

a dose of reality
Sometimes reality strikes, and you just have to take a good look at it. I've decided to start a manual food log, just to see if I really am making healthy choices for the most part. And I think I am, but I do find that when I feel like I have ... Read more
It's day 2 of my "staycation", and I thought it would be a good idea to check up on my progress against my previous blog.
We went skiing yesterday, which was on my mental list of things to do, even if it didn't make it into the blog! Tha... Read more
The week ahead
It's Monday again, and officially I'm off work this week....but I have some work that needs doing, so I am going in today to get that done. Also, I wanted to get in my Monday training, and figured it would be more likely to happen if I went to ... Read more
Last night I got out the knitting needles again, and decided on yet another scarf! I have this chunky brown yarn that I think will make a great scarf, and since I'm trying to use up the yarn I've already bought, I can't really make anything but... Read more
New goal for January (not a resolution)
I'm not making resolutions anymore, I didn't last year, and I'm not this year. I really can't remember the last time I made a "resolution", since what I do now is continually make new goals. I find it's easier to start a new habit one at a tim... Read more

Last night was a no snack night....no problem there, Larry made the delicious potatoes, and we had steak and salmon along with a giant salad. Needless to say I was stuffed after all that!
And it was New Year's Eve! But we just stayed in... Read more
