Did pretty well on steps even for a Saturday!

Sunday, January 31, 2016      2 comments

Yesterday, I went over 6,000 steps. Yes, I would have liked to have gone over 8,000 but respected my body enough to get the rest I am going to need to get through another tough week. I am determined that this will be a transformative year. ... Read more

Steps Against the Cold!

Friday, January 29, 2016      8 comments

I use transit. I have not had a car for nearly 30 years. In the winter here, it gets cold on bus benches. If I get cold now, I walk. If I can walk to my next stop, I do. If I can't, I walk up and down the block. This is really increas... Read more

What I did last night...and this morning....

Wednesday, January 27, 2016      2 comments

Yesterday's trip home was a story of cold weather and hairsbreadth missed buses. At my transfer point, I had a 15 minute wait for the next bus home. When I felt the January chill...I got up and paced up and down the block. Once I got home, ... Read more

Never in my life have I been so glad of my knitting! This morning's trip in was -4F. That is without calculating wind chill. After being here nearly a half an hour, my fingertips have a bit of the frosted burn....and my cheekbones are a bi... Read more

The whole food and emotion thing is something that I am working on....daily. Being mindful has helped a lot. Revisiting what I like and really want has also helped. As I go through Target or the grocery store and am hit with temptation, I... Read more

Good Doctor Visit with a Bad Scale

Tuesday, January 05, 2016      2 comments

The scale at the doctors office weighed me 8 pounds over what I weighed the last time I used the Aria. I have not been careful...but not that careless! Okay, it was after lunch and I was wearing shoes and Minnesota January is n... Read more

Went to the Gym!

Tuesday, January 05, 2016      4 comments

My gym is a rehab gym that one of my doctor's sent me to a few years ago. Fairview's WEL Program is great. Without the WEL Program, I would not be walking as well as I do. The downside is that the hours are very limited...and lately I ... Read more

January will speed by. As it speeds by me...I want to be moving at my own good pace. What does this mean? This means moving more at work and at home. It is that simple. I want to get up and walk the floor at work. At home, I can move a... Read more

Thursday, December 31, 2015      3 comments

New Year's Eve is a time of reflection for me....and oddly a day that I have despised for years. This year, the self-reflection gives me a lot more positives than it has in a long time. What are they? I am 100% happier than I was at this... Read more

There are a number of things about which I am anxious at the moment. There are better ways....walking it out, writing in a journal (always intend this but don't do it), meditation, work with this. I have to admit I have been us... Read more

Thursday, September 24, 2015      0 comments

I am going through a rough patch. One of the things I read recently about getting through tough times is to practice Radical Self Care. What is this for me? That is what I am trying to figure out. I know what it is more mena... Read more

Back to it....

Thursday, September 17, 2015      7 comments

Went off the rails for about a month. Not in the way that I used to....but enough to make me think hard about where I was headed. I am in Day 4 of being back on track. I feel better. I am more resilient as the daily "excitement" comes up.... Read more
