I saw an incredible movie today called "Disfigured". It is available for streaming on Netflix if you have a subscription there. It is a tiny movie that probably got no attention, but I wish every woman (person?) everywhere could watch it. It sta... Read more

I loved today's quote from the Healthy Reflections email, and I wanted to share in case anyone didn't see it: "When things go wrong don't go with them." - Elvis Presley, rock idol I know it's meant to be funny, but I can relate to th... Read more

Slowly getting back on track

Overall I am enjoying my new work schedule - who knew I was such a morning person? I still have trouble getting to bed early some nights, mostly due to noisy neighbors... sigh, apartment living. But overall, I love rising and sinking (into bed) ... Read more

One of the things I need to do to get healthier is get up earlier, which I've blogged about before. Unfortunately I am sort of a "night owl" so my tendency is to stay up later (like tonight). Well, I also need to change my shift at work to accom... Read more

I've been doing pretty well over the last few days of being kind to myself... mostly because I don't have a choice. I've had a terrible ear infection that is absolutely driving me nuts and stealing all my energy - and keeping me in bed most of t... Read more

My last month's post for goals was titled "ready to begin again". The truth is, I'm tired of starting over. So instead of starting over, I'm going to start fresh with one, solitary, single, new goal: Be kind to myself. This means sever... Read more

Here we go again...

I have had several bad days - no exercise, smoking, and drank twice. Don't even want to get into the eating thing. I realize I need real-world support, and have appointments next week with a counselor and with my doctor. I am wanting to get "bac... Read more

I got up at a reasonable hour today, finally! I did a 20-minute cardio workout and then got ready for work without having to rush and stress. Fantastic start to the day! What a difference it makes in my attitude throughout the day to get out of ... Read more

After committing to getting up earlier this morning - just 15 minutes earlier per a suggestion on yesterday's blog, which seems totally reasonable - I absolutely could not sleep last night. When I did finally fall asleep, I dreamt I was being ki... Read more

I had a really great day today overall, but I am still struggling with one thing - getting out of bed at a reasonable hour in the morning! I don't have time to work out in the morning because I am rushing to get breakfast and go to work, so my w... Read more

I had a very healthy weekend overall. I didn't work out today, but I was so sore from my yoga class yesterday it wasn't possible - so it wasn't a matter of laziness at least. :) I was within calorie range all weekend, and did not smoke, so I am ... Read more

I've had an interesting couple of days, a real emotional roller-coaster. I found out yesterday that I didn't get the promotion I had applied for and I was devastated. I know I am lucky to have a steady job with a great, stable company that treat... Read more

I am so proud of myself, I met all of my healthy living goals today. I even went to a yoga class tonight straight from work - normally from work I go straight home, not to be seen again until the next day. I am so grateful I went to class, becau... Read more
