weaving a day

Friday, March 27, 2015      3 comments

Dark early morning, not the warmest day in March, yet I lean into April, with bated breath as they say. I really picked up my walking this month in readiness for springtime. I look to today with affection. That the sink is backed up from ... Read more

and the clock moves forward next

Saturday, March 07, 2015      3 comments

I love it! I can finally say that I made a comment I mean literally and figuratively! The clock moves forward tonight, and I already began to lean into the light. Looking for any opportunity to feel like I matter to me again, I have been ... Read more

improve one direction and lose ground in another

Mid Winter Wondering: No solutions here today. Just the paradox I'm living. And perhaps you will have some insight in lieu of my benign conundrum. Or delete me without plowing through. I am just able now to pull out boxes of stored stu... Read more

Fear of Failure is False!

Thursday, July 10, 2014      7 comments

I just read over my last blog and it felt bleak and heavy until I discovered the source which is feeling guilty. When dealing with family, guilt is often what we summon up when anyone appears to be letting themselves or us down. I was an... Read more

meandering morning mind

Saturday, June 21, 2014      4 comments

Fuzzy head, fuzzy stroked arm, under slept a few hours, pushed to wake up early enough for a really good walk (to make up for this week's step count), wanting to hide again in oblivion and sleep. But I dreamed. And that pulled me up into this d... Read more

6/8/14 post maintenance

Sunday, June 08, 2014      1 comments

Someone's post I came across prompted this note from me this morning: Hi. I'm not on your 100 day challenge nor do I know which team is holding this event but I do like the time period commitment -- it makes sense to me. I got to ... Read more

12/13/13 Goal Weight

Friday, December 13, 2013      8 comments

This greeting will be brief I hope because I haven't taken a walk yet and today's weather makes it possible to do. I just want to say that since April of this year I've gotten down to this day. My 6 1/2 years on Spark involved a lot of learnin... Read more

It just took April and May

Saturday, June 29, 2013      4 comments

I've been around the diet websites for years. I've learned more about portion control and calorie counting. I've increased my walking and kept in contact with other team members. I've worked on raising my awareness about the kinds of things ... Read more

say something for stability

Monday, May 14, 2012      4 comments

I don't write blog entries often these days, having used up my creative mind walking when I was younger. But every now and then I wake up to a topic and so here I am. I have something to say about stability. The weight game seems to be a ... Read more

succumbed to medifast for a month

Friday, February 24, 2012      6 comments

I never thought I'd stoop so low as to go on a 'diet', and certainly not something like medifast. But I have. This is week 2 (day 10); an obsessive way to control my over all intake. The first few days I felt ill on it and was truly miser... Read more

goodbye 2011; goodbye my 'mind think'

Saturday, December 24, 2011      1 comments

I'm walking. At least I brought that back! It feels important right now, like the basis for clearing up my breathing in of so much inertia. So what helps most? A call from a friend who wants to get out of her funk reaching out. The mo... Read more

(Practically) Nothing Is Absolute!

Thursday, July 07, 2011      4 comments

Practically nothing is absolute. So slide along or clench the rails of right and wrong. I swore on the last blog that I hit my high. Then I saw the scale go up another 4 1/2 lbs to that teetering 169.5, and that is where I've pulled back to a... Read more

face it, the goal was unrealistic

Saturday, June 04, 2011      4 comments

Lovely weather reprieve, thank you mother nature. And with the word reprieve comes a fresh look at my situation here. I arrived in 2007. I have not made lifestyle adjustments smooth enough to be fit and trim as intended. I mean, I almost... Read more
