So Very Blessed!
Last night I got the sweetest blessing! We have a Christmas conference at work, and they decorate to the hilt, including real Christmas trees. Sometimes in the past they've been available for us to take home, but last year they were too crunch... Read more
Christmas is Coming!
A question has been in the back of my mind related to my chronic health issues. In the past, did I stop exercising because my health was failing or did my health fail because I stopped exercising? As I've been gaining strength, I've been pushi... Read more
I'm getting ready to leave town for the holidays, so I've been deliberately depleting the perishable food in the house. Also, since our work facility shuts down for the last two weeks of December, they usually give away a variety of food items ... Read more
Where I'm Going.
Today I was at the market looking at the sale bin. Half price whole wheat Newton's caught my eye. They looked really good. I started to feel myself pulled in by the whole wheat thought. That's healthy, right? Then I caught myself. The rest... Read more
Stress Unraveled and a Great Workout!
When I went to my acupuncturist during the low priced stress clinic to have her work on my foot, she also offered to put needles in my hears for the stress, anxiety, PTSD etc. treatment. I am so grateful I said yes!
There was significant s... Read more
More Intense Tomorrow!
My little attempt at running left me sore and tired. I've still been exercising, but it's been low intensity for 3 days now. Today was a really nice rest day. I think I'll be ready to work out harder tomorrow. I'm actually looking forward to... Read more
Awhile ago, I started painting because it helps me work through emotions and comforts me. After the very first session, I realized why I don't paint more often. When I'm done, there's a painting. I know that seems ridiculous, but I live in 32... Read more
Visions of Running
Ever since I got a better sports bra recently, it has not been visions of sugar plums that have danced in my head. Instead it's been visions of running on the beach. I've tried at least a couple of times in the decade that I've lived on the co... Read more
Rest is Coming
I am really grateful for a day off tomorrow, because I am so tired. It's almost up to two weeks now, since I significantly increased exercise. I don't feel like I've found the happy medium yet between pushing myself and overdoing it. I'm also... Read more
Win Some Lose Some
Last night I was out later than usual having fun with friends. This morning, I decided to roll over and get almost 8 hours of snooze instead of getting up at the usual time. I intended to do a shorter work out, but it felt so good. I was doin... Read more
Peace, Paint and Pumpkin
Today was a mildly productive, mostly restful day. I slept in as long as I could get by with. My acupuncturist is offering a lunch hour stress clinic during December at a ridiculously low price. The scar tissue on my foot keeps tightening up ... Read more
New Goal Day 1
This morning it was really hard to get up. It was warm in bed and cold out there. I didn't feel like working out. I didn't feel like getting up. It took awhile, but I did roll out of the sack eventually.
One particular work out video ... Read more
In Control of the Goal
A week ago I got the hair brained idea of reaching a higher fitness minutes goal than ever before, during December, the month of all food temptations. I did the math, evaluated my schedule, and decided to try it out before December hit.

I have a confession to make. I love working on Thanksgiving. I know it's supposed to be all about family and big feasting, but life is complicated. My family's kind of volatile these past few years, and it's so much safer to be at work with m... Read more
Why Did I Stop?
I've been looking at some data lately from my health, fitness and weight journey. I realized that there were some key points where I stopped doing the things that were bringing about progress. It was surprising for me to see how long it took m... Read more
