Sparking Again
Tuesday, June 27, 2017      4 comments

Having life interrupted every hour by brain rest has made it hard to get anything done. I used it as an excuse to stop logging food either on paper or in the computer. Being peri means the scale has no mercy. So this morning I got into SparkC... Read more
How Am I?

People have asked how I am and I have no idea how to answer that question. Practically, life is so very complicated: * resting 10 minutes of every hour instead of 15 * work doesn't like the rest breaks * they shuffled my schedule so I'll ... Read more
Better Day Than I've Had in Ages!
Tuesday, June 13, 2017      3 comments

I'm feeling so much better today. My brain moves so much faster than it has in forever. I walk straighter. I walked parking lot bumpers with relative ease and speed. I've still had a headache and jaw ache off and on, but overall this is vast... Read more
Healing Thoughts

I overate by 270 calories yesterday and the scale says I lost a pound this morning. I'm going to take that to mean my body likes it when I eat to target my diagnosis. I've been having the most amazing experiences in the process of rest. ... Read more

At my last medical appointment, I got a diagnosis. Woohoo! But it was from a therapist not a doctor. So I requested a referral to a doctor trained in this issue. Hopefully they will call back soon. If you are a praying person, please believ... Read more

Today's SparkCoach made me cry. We were supposed to think of our future self 10 years from now. She had us close our eyes and go through a series of visualization questions. Then we called ourself from the future with reasons to not give up to... Read more
New Training Plan

Somehow it came together in my head this morning... a convergence of thoughts that took awhile to form. When I decided that the physical therapy exercises weren't working for me, I set out to work on my top priority: walk straight. But then I ... Read more

There's a married guy who has been coming to events once a year at our facility for ages. Probably 4 years ago, he was making me uncomfortable: flirting too much and trying to buy me things. I talked with a coworker about it and she thought I ... Read more

Thanks to all of you for your kind thoughts, words and prayers for my medical appointment on Tuesday. Things went about as well as could be expected. I got there a couple hours early because of the bus schedule from the coast. The recep... Read more

Today is an adventure. I'm off to the big city for a crucial medical appointment. I have my notes. I packed my lunch, dinner and snacks. I threw in "The Mouse and the Motorcycle" book, because it makes me smile, and my crochet if I need to k... Read more

So one of the comments on my last blog was that I should throw the bag of cookies from my parents away. I live and work in a place where there's lots of poverty. Throwing away cookies just seemed morally wrong to me. But that didn't mean I ha... Read more

My family is gone! Wahoo! This has been such a ride. Back at the holidays my mom tried to force me to see my evil brother. I melted down with anxiety and fear like I don't think I've ever had in my life. I started meeting with my pastor... Read more

How do you remember to actually DO what you intended?
Friday, May 05, 2017      6 comments

I'm in a season of being really forgetful. I intend to exercise at night after work, but I don't always remember. I meant to log food for the day, but then realize I didn't. I can't remember what I ate, so it doesn't happen. I've been ... Read more
