Jahrzeit

Thursday, July 07, 2011      7 comments

This is a word that my sisters have introduced to me. Literal translation: Year Time. It denotes the commemoration of the date of someone's death. Today is our mother's Jahrzeit. She passed away in 1996, exactly three weeks after my husband... Read more

Places on the journey

Wednesday, July 06, 2011      12 comments

Sometimes our journey to health and fitness seems to be a bit of a winding path. I think of it like a labyrinth, winding back on itself. Many of us are on this journey, and we are at different places in the labyrinth... sometimes they come clo... Read more

Old fashioned Family 4th of July

Tuesday, July 05, 2011      7 comments

Old Glory... what the holiday is all about. Except of course the food, the fireworks, the family... but without the flag and those who sign up to defend us... where would we b... Read more

Independence: from the tyrant's side

Monday, July 04, 2011      9 comments

We celebrate the independence of the United States of America today. Independence was declared from a King and Country that taxed the nobles who had moved here but did not allow them a voice in Parliament. Anyway, that's what we are taught in ... Read more

Army Physical Fitness Test - woohoo!

Sunday, July 03, 2011      22 comments

I was living in my happy moments yesterday and feeling strong. It was two days early, but I got this idea in my head that "I need to do some strength training, as I have that APFT goal to take it on the 4th." Anyway, I warmed up on my trus... Read more

I missed the end of the month... better late than never...

Saturday, July 02, 2011      5 comments

End of the month coming on a Thursday kind of put a crimp in my style. But progress (in maintenance, as in loss) must be documented. So end of last June (2010) and this morning's photos are on the front page. Last night's one thing slopp... Read more

Observation and tracking changes the outcome

Friday, July 01, 2011      9 comments

I became a Nielsen family for a week starting yesterday morning at 5 a.m. Surprise! I think twice about turning on the TV and what I'm going to watch, knowing I have to write it down. Because it has to be five minutes within a fifteen minute ... Read more

Just a quickie!

Wednesday, June 29, 2011      11 comments

Love my shiny stove top, thanks to several small efforts at "do one thing" morning and after work. Next in that: the stove front! I managed to clean the toaster as one of my "one thing" efforts and that side of the kitchen is starting to shap... Read more

In defense of crashing and burning

Tuesday, June 28, 2011      6 comments

It's truly part of the process. It's OK. Don't let it get you down. I have observed of recent episodes of going after the carbs, it has often been coupled with disrupted sleep cycles. When I couldn't get my nap in on Sunday (it just wasn... Read more

So, if you were wondering when I would next crash and burn...

Monday, June 27, 2011      5 comments

Sunday won the bet. I said it was a great afternoon for a nap, which it was, but I only nodded off for about five minutes. I proceeded to sedate myself with carbs. Today, back on track. Sundays are a tough day, especially when I start st... Read more

Mellers reprise - plus a good start on Sunday

Sunday, June 26, 2011      7 comments

I knew that last night my brother in law was going to be playing the role of Osgood Lissard, the villian in "Foul Works at the Fireworks Factory". I hadn't had a chance to see him shine in this one, I had been plotting to get out to see it some... Read more

Come Saturday morning...

Saturday, June 25, 2011      9 comments

I'm ta-da-da-dah with my friends... what is it about the aging process that makes a body forget the lyrics? Still, those of us in my age range will remember the tune! Yeah, those of you who just said, "She's high again" are right. High on... Read more

Now I'm freaking out...

Friday, June 24, 2011      16 comments

My "one thing" this evening started out to be pull a few weeds on the way to get the plastic chairs out of the shed and put them on the deck. Only, as I got close to the shed, I started to pull up some bindweed and suddenly, there in my bare ha... Read more

Support systems

Friday, June 24, 2011      10 comments

Discussing Support Systems is kind of like coming in to the middle of a movie. The first question about support systems is "what is this system supporting?" Which returns one to the start of the movie: values and goals. Given that you ha... Read more

It's not about the one thing...

Thursday, June 23, 2011      5 comments

it's about the attitude! It's all about the attitude. "Do one thing" is a philosophy my older sister read about somewhere and mentioned to me in conversation a few years ago. "When you are feeling overwhelmed... just do one thing." It do... Read more
