Out of my Shell
When I am feeling good about myself and relaxed, I open up. Today was one of those days.
THe day started out with a meeting and participation in a large group, and I made my mark. Later one of the presenters came over and I shared some sto... Read more
Not Looking Behind Me
Today was a little surprise, and it was a fun one. It's been hot out, and today no different. I wore a sleeveless shirt to work. I do it infrequently, but today was one of those days. I sat in a bit of traffic and noticed the convertible in fron... Read more
I need more stamina. My lack of working out regularly has totally tanked my stamina. Between leg pain and just the crappy way I feel lately, my stamina has been trashed.
I know I will get it back with hard work, but I am just reminding myse... Read more
I come from a long line of people who other people love to be around. We are a contagiously happy bunch. Tonight while driving home, I heard a song that my uncle loved by Al Green. He introduced us to a lot of Motown music, and this song brought... Read more
My mojo is coming back. I am feeling hints of it. It is when I get excited and feel as if there possibilities that things are coming together, and I am not hopeless. When I am not hopeless, I am not powerless. When I am not powerless, I am prepa... Read more
Chairs are a necessity to me, and something I fret about. There are times when I have felt uncomfortable, cautious, singled out, left out, and vulnerable because of chairs. Is it too light, is it going to hold me, what are the chances of me fall... Read more
Fighting for Your Worth
I don't know why I decided that this was the time to watch it. It had been sitting on my playlist for months. I had a little free time and I reviewed my amazon playlist, and one of the free prime movies was "In a Town This Size." It chronicled t... Read more
This is Why - The Intro
There are many personal reasons for me that I NEED to get healthy. It is not just a matter of losing weight (though saying it like that almost makes it seem like it is some easy off-handed thing) - it's not - well, that has not been my experienc... Read more
Unlocking the Mystery
I was hungry. I mean famished. I felt it. I needed to eat, and my thoughts were racing about where I would stop after work since the homestead looks like Old Mother Hubbard lives there.
and Then my day was interrupted. a 4:30pm departure t... Read more
Doing it Again
My simple advice to myself is to find what works and do it again.
I know how to eat well, move, and take good care of myself; I don't always do it. When that happens, I look for the next magic pill (not drugs) to fix my life and wonder why ... Read more
On the Road
There's been ups and downs lately for me, and i am sure I am not alone in that. That being said, here's some positive tidbits. I have been trying to eat more fruits and veggies. Today, I had:

The biggest thing I have going on these days is that I have all but ditched my cane. I am still using it to navigate up and down the front steps at my house, but beyond that, it sits in the corner, or in my car.
My legs are getting stronge... Read more
On Saturday, I had a big scare. I woke up with jabs in my side, feeling like I couldn't breathe, and crying. Crying fluctuating between pain, fear and frustration. I thought I was going to have to go to the ER. I calmed myself way down. Mental c... Read more
Exhausted, but trucking along. Not going to blog currently, but will be back in a couple of days. Hope you are all doing great!... Read more
Let's Share the Good
Today, I had an awesome day at work. One huge success is with a student worker I have been on the verge of firing several times. He is not terrible, just missing the mark. I changed my mind one day when I was very close to letting him go. I deci... Read more
