Ft. Worth Cultural center today

Saturday, September 21, 2013      3 comments

There were mustang competitions, a dog show, and a quilt show. I could have happily spent all day in any of the three. I was a little dismayed in how exhausted I was when we got back. I'll add a picture as soon as I get it downloaded. I had... Read more

Eating Intuitively

Saturday, September 14, 2013      5 comments

That's today's challenge in the SparkCoach program I joined. My first thought was that I'm pretty good at eating only when I'm hungry. Then I thought of all the times I eat because I'm at someone else's house and everyone else is eating. We all ... Read more

Goal setting is a real challenge for me. The minute I make one, I defeat myself, knowing I will not meet the goal. Consequently, I avoid goal making 95% of the time. There ARE a few I've made that succeeded, and there's a change in the way I thi... Read more

After fitting in walking so well on my trip, I have yet to take a walk since I've been home. My epiphany this morning was that maybe when you have too MUCH time, it's easier to procrastinate. It's true also that the first day home (Monday), I wa... Read more

More on the back pain...

Wednesday, June 05, 2013      3 comments

Today I did light gardening and little chores around the house, just to keep moving. I've gotten very sensitive to bending down. I shoveled some mulch into the wheel barrow, making the bag light enough to lift and empty it. The hardest part was ... Read more

I've been having major back pain lately, and it's from sitting too much, I know. Not only did I have almost a week of sitting in a car... well, sitting then jumping out and trying to get some exercise in for a while; going from stiff and st... Read more

I've been more active lately; little time for lots of exercise, but just in general moving around more than usual... gardening, more shopping, etc. Today I'm celebrating how much better my body feels when I do that. Remember the old chant "... Read more
