Trying to relax
...and be a little easier on myself. I'm finding that when I just quit nagging myself all the time, as if to a rebellious teen, the rebellious teen within myself cooperates and does what she is supposed to do a lot more freely. Anyone know what ... Read more
The wonder of animals
This morning when I was doing Yoga, my elderly cat came running in to do HER yoga thing.... using my body as a petting agency. Whenever a hand or body part is close enough, she rubs against me, even nuzzling her nose under my hand so I can strok... Read more
Haven't been writing lately - been lazy and depressed. This always means, as I've come to know, that I'm headed for another breakthrough. Not sure I'll share it here; I have a lifelong habit of not really sharing my deepest thoughts. It's a trus... Read more
Sleeping till 10 a.m.?
Yes... today, 10 a.m., and I used to be a chronic early riser. The good thing is I feel nice and rested today.
Husband and I are working, which means a discombobulated day. I do chores when I'm not typing, but my schedule is whenever he ne... Read more
Doctor checkup today: Stressed out for no reason
Last year, during a stressful time, I'd had some chest pain. Today's checkup indicated no problems. Will be very interested in the lab work.
Most fun thing from my sewing room?

Thumbs up to pumpkin butter
Followup on jellies and jam as sweetener for hot cereal..... yummy! Especially my daughter's pumpkin butter I ate today. I'm limiting myself two 2 tsp., so it's not quite as sweet tasting as my maple syrup, but it's really good.
1) Did I co... Read more
Using stored food
Cleaned out the refrigerator yesterday, something I do too infrequently. Found 4 jars of mayonnaise (that's my husband for ya!), and 9 jars of various kinds of jelly. The majority of these were gifts over the holidays.
My usual way of eatin... Read more
Last Day - Jumpstart challenge
I'm not going to check "week 4" on my Jumpstart plan, because I was derailed by the trip. I did still get 10 minutes a day exercise, but couldn't always do the video challenge.
Discouraged a little? Yep! However, I'm looking back over the ... Read more
Day 26 - January Jumpstart
Yesterday was first full day home, and our home welcomed us with comfortable arms. We both enjoy traveling, but we've done a ton of it and it's always so nice to come home. And.... we still like this house better than anything we looked at while... Read more
Day 20 of January Jumpstart challenge
Spent day looking at houses, trying to decide if we want to move to this area. This is a enjoyable activity spending time doing something new, but with my beautiful new remodeled kitchen at home, I'm having a hard time adjusting to something not... Read more
Day 19 - Finally arrived
My husband had some extra work come in, so we didn't leave on trip till yesterday afternoon; arrived at motel 3 a.m. this morning. I've been keeping with the 10 minute SP videos till yesterday, but did upper body routines in the bathrooms across... Read more
Day 15 - getting ready to travel
We're leaving Wednesday for 10 days, which I didn't consider when I signed up for this jumpstart. I'm taking my laptop, so should be able to keep up, but we'll be spending a lot of time in the car. Will have to plan some computer and exercise ti... Read more
Day 14 -
Peaceful day today. Went 300 calories over my limit [Positive take on this one? I TRACKED IT!!!]. A dessert was a planned treat, the over-fatty dinner was not. And no time tonight to do a long cardio routine. I'll still do my 10 minute jumpstart... Read more
