All geared up for trip to MD for my dh today. We had a good visit and then took a drive in the sunshine through the countryside and on back roads. Signs of spring everywhere. What a beautiful day. Also found a CSA (farm that raises organic... Read more
two day streak!
I had a good day from the standpoint of my goals - good on food (mostly), on water and on exercise. Did some weights this morning, and then, after work, walked my 'circuit' again -the 1 1/2 mile loop...
Of couse, I did forget to meet my fr... Read more
So, with daylight saving time I finally persuaded myself to get out an walk after preparing dinner for my dh, but before I ate my own. I have this 'round' which is about 1 1/2 mile door to door...and even though I walked fairly slowly I made it... Read more
It's spring break and I'm not out walking like I promised myself - seem to be in the doldrums...waiting for something, I'm not sure what...And now the sunny weather is passing...so I'll be walking in the rain, or back to the treadmill -

King Corn and me!
Just watched the movie - King Corn...the bottom line is that practically everything we eat today is based on 'corn'....it's either animals fed corn and corn by-products to fatten them up; or it's fruits and other processed plant foods that have... Read more
I feel pretty good today, even without exercise. Got everything ready for my class and caught up with some bills and projects...Sun shining bright (although very cold out) always lifts my spirits high. Class went well and guess I'm like the ki... Read more
Let every day be a sunny day!
I keep working on all my projects, teaching, reading, writing, cooking, cleaning, bill paying, ...late hours, early hours...somehow, I can't get myself to take the 30 minutes each day to exercise. This is so aggravating - and then I wanted to k... Read more
So I've been feeling great about exercise and not so great about food. Monday night I ate a whole bag of popcorn - plain, salted, but the WHOLE BAG?
Set a goal to walk 10 miles per week (and have already done 3.72 in 2 days...).

Good day overall for my commitments to myself. Except I still didn't really eat breakfast. I get hungry around noon so had a big lunch, but that was after walking over 1.75 miles on the treadmill - 33.5 minutes...So the pace of walking picked ... Read more
Some good, some not so good.
Got my exercise in this morning -30 minutes on the treadmill. Plus a little of the Chi gong I learned that is supposed to lead to natural weight management...I tracked along doing my morning chores - breakfast for Andre, dishes, laundry, lunch ... Read more
Past two days were devoted to catching up wiht my work...lots of extra activities related to the class I teach, other work projects, and a conference that was held today in which I was the MC and convener...Art & Science of Aging: Staying Healt... Read more
Running - on empty?
Trying to get everything done this morning that I had on my list, guess what I missed - no breakfast, no exercise. Instead, breakfast and meds for my dh, dishes into dishwasher, trip to the hair salon, trip to the pharmacy, phone call with my d... Read more
So it's midweek and I'm feeling better.
Managed to convince myself to walk on that treadmill yesterday and today, for at least 20 minutes or one mile. Today went better than yesterday, as I sped up a bit and went a bit farther and bit longer. It's great how my mind clears up when I... Read more
Seems hard to believe how hard it is to get myself in gear on Monday...late getting up, slow with breakfast and getting organized in my work. Could not find time for exercise other than some weights and a very brief Chi Gong routine.

Thinking about progress and gratitude
This past year has been incredibly challenging and difficult on both the personal and professional fronts. Andre, my husband, has entered into a deep dementia due to his cardiovascular problems including diabetes and high blood pressure, leavin... Read more
