Neuroplasticity and letting go - long blog warning
In 2014 I read many books about mindfulness and about how human brains work.
One of them was "Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom" by Rick Hanson. Among so many things new to me, the most interesting one w... Read more
Back home for 2 days
One of the 2 inspections was successfully finished on Friday - I'm so happy! : ))
As I hoped, the process itself was less stressful than the preparations, and it was held strictly 8:30-5pm on all the five days.
This meant I had to reschedule... Read more
Hard week and good choices again
This week was mostly like the previous one, 3-day client visit with two supervisors, making corrections and translating back and forth from Hungarian to English non stop.
I followed my meal plan, did my workouts as planned, some meditation, an... Read more
Credit to myself for good choices
Three exhausting days of inspection preparations behind me!
Sitting all day with 2 supervisors reviewing quality of client's data and processes.
Good week and weight trends
This week was good, office days Mon-Fri, and I'm working again today on Saturday.
Working 48 hours in 6 days is much better than covering the same amount of work in 5 days, and I will get a day off for this, so I'm fine with it.
I made good ... Read more
A better work week and a peaceful weekend
Work was more reasonable this week.
The ceaseless requests for documents slowed down, and though I worked long hours, I will absolutely not do any work or even think about it during the weekend - two long days!
Today I had my long forest ... Read more
How cognitive therapy helps
In the past week I noticed I wish to blog more often, maybe to organize my thoughts.
Your kind supporting and encouraging comments help me a lot, I appreciate them so much!
First overeating episode of 2015
I woke up well rested today, ran in the forest, did yoga, and cooked lunch with DD, my parents visiting.
The first signs of "I don't care" emerged during cooking: I wished to taste a few bites, and I did.
Mental note for future: Don't Do It!... Read more
Working on Saturday
I don't have to, I chose to.
Tuesday morning at 8:30, while I was peacefully sparking and having breakfast, the project lead girl saw I was online and called me to discuss what documents she needed immediately.
Then it clicked: however hard ... Read more
Stress reduction: from "unbearable" to "highly annoying"
If at all possible, I have 2-3 hours of calmness and peace every morning before work to myself: meditation, play with cat, run or walk, yoga, shower, breakfast... and then it's showtime!
During this time I gently push away all work related tho... Read more
Under the weather and high workload
Two weeks ago DH and DS had flu with high fever, and they are still coughing.
I escaped without high fever, but I got the congestion, sore throat and bronchitis, with mild to moderate fatigue. Not a good combination with crazy work schedule.

Today I hit a new low weight: 59.9 kg / 132 pounds.
I haven't been below 60 kg once during my SP journey, and the last time I was about 18 years ago, when my daughter was two.
I'm 6 kg / 13 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight.
The old "... Read more
Cat Sabotaged my Morning Yoga
I have a start of a head cold, so decided to do a restorative yoga session after my morning walk.
So I did, and after 15 minutes, just when I was about to come off a lying pose, I felt the cat got on my belly, curled up and started to purr swe... Read more
Don't get me wrong, I think working hard, paying full attention to tasks is good.
But it is easy to overdo it.
Being focused and getting a lot of work done, making progress feels good. Feels so good I can easily end up wanting more and more,... Read more
Wonderful run on packed snow and ice
Yesterday's workday was so long I didn't get to do any exercise at all.
Did about 30 minutes of deep relaxation though, because I woke up too early and couldn't get back to sleep. Went to bed at 9 pm and had a good sleep.
Today I'm workin... Read more
