Little things add up
Thursday, March 23, 2017      10 comments

I continually work on establishing and maintaining my boundaries. Today my neighbor came over to ask me to "help" her take the battery out the smoke detector in her apartment because it was dying and chirping constantly. By "helping", she mean... Read more
The maintenance guy and a well behaved dog...
Wednesday, March 22, 2017      15 comments

Well the maintenance man finally showed up at 9am (he told me yesterday he would be here at 8), So, I took Cooper out for an hour walk when Mike got here. When we got back we sat over at my neighbor, Patty's, apartment for another hour, as he ... Read more
stuff happens...

I got up early and walked Cooper for an hour. When we got back I hopped in the shower, and had hot water... for a whole five minutes. Sigh. The breaker on my hot water tank has been tripping about once a week for a little over a month now, an... Read more
Getting there... slowly
Monday, March 20, 2017      11 comments

I woke up before my alarm this morning. I even remembered to turn it off before it went off, so I didn't have to hear it at all. That was nice. I had to get an annoying alarm clock, because I am not a morning person, and anything gentle I wou... Read more
The "grumpies"
Sunday, March 19, 2017      13 comments

I am just feeling out of sorts with the world this weekend. I am hoping it passes. Even running didn't alleviate the grumpies today. Usually the endorphins burn off the crankiness, and I feel refreshed, even if I am tired. But not today. I ... Read more
Lunch with mom and dad
Saturday, March 18, 2017      11 comments

Saturdays I make lunch at mom and dad's. Today was spaghetti and meatballs, with a side of broccoli. Dad just mixed his broccoli into the sauce. LOL. The meatballs were delish, and I did not overcook the pasta. Plenty of garlic in both the ... Read more
Plodding along

It was actually a fairly pleasant day. Mostly because I avoided people. I took Cooper out for his walks, and checked my mail, but other than that I didn't really talk to anyone but my mom on the phone. We had to confer on tomorrow's menu. We... Read more
Trying not to dwell
Thursday, March 16, 2017      16 comments

I live in a apartment building reserved for the elderly and disabled. Unfortunately this means that most of us do not work. I keep to myself, and really only talk to my immediate neighbor or one woman on the first floor. There is a reason for... Read more
Slow day, snow day

I got up sort of early so I could call and cancel my appointment this morning. Turns out they were about to call ME and cancel it, so I saved them a phone call. LOL. It was cold today and snowy...though not as snowy as predicted. The low was... Read more
Hello again
Monday, March 13, 2017      14 comments

I have been absent a few days. It felt weird, but it was necessary. Part of this journey is knowing when to take a breather, right? Not just from exercise, but in our lives. I needed to just BE. Saturday lunch with mom and dad was good. I ... Read more
Cooking adventures
Thursday, March 09, 2017      11 comments

So, I have a friend who comes over every couple months and cooks a meal with me. She is Puerto Rican and she likes to cook food she grew up with. I truly do not mind this. LOL! So yummy. Today was a simple soup. Just rice, sliced carrots, ... Read more
Running in the rain... and running on the treadmill
Tuesday, March 07, 2017      9 comments

Normally this time of year I would be snowshoeing, but today I went for a long run in the rain since the temps weren't bad. I had the time for it, so I did a little over 2 hours. I got up early this morning and took Cooper for a walk before my... Read more
Whole30 Day 30
Monday, March 06, 2017      10 comments

So, I had a total of 3 migraines in 30 days. That is about half the usual number, so I guess there is some evidence to show there may be some nutritional trigger(s) for my migraines. Of course there are other triggers as well, but limiting the... Read more
Whole30 Day 29
Sunday, March 05, 2017      11 comments

I had another fairly quiet day today. I did make a quick visit to mom and dad's in the late morning. Walked the dog about 3.5 hours over 3 walks, and went for a run, as well as some indoor workout time. Other than that I curled up with the do... Read more
Whole30 Day 28
Saturday, March 04, 2017      10 comments

I caved and had popcorn today. I felt like a snack with some real carbs to it, so yeah... I gave in. I feel okay about it though. And I am not feeling any immediate ill effects, so I will just move on. I only have two days on the extreme res... Read more
