Counting backwards, Day 32--BAD, but good
and downhill from there. BAD food day. However, I am not feeling bad about it, not feeling guilty, not mentally beating up on myself because I learned something useful. I wasn't craving sweets; I wanted FATS. I... Read more

Counting Backwards, Day 34
Ugh! I am dead-tired. But my daughter and her things are all moved into her new home. I worked hard cleaning, washing, unpacking, searching, and assembling a complex set of shelving that weighed a ton. No idea how many calories I burned toda... Read more
Counting Backwards, Day 35!
Woohoo, woohoo! I've started another good week. I've been doing longer videos, and I can feel a difference in my body. Stooping, reaching, stretching all feel easier and good. Noticed when I cleaned the bottom shelf of the pantry where the ... Read more
Counting Backwards Day 36!
This has been another good day. I started off with a SP yoga video I hadn't done before and continued my major house clean-out. Took stuff to Salvation Army so there are no boxes sitting in my bedroom. Discovered that my Italian ice place has... Read more

And Counting...(backwards!) Day 41
Under calories today which is unusual. I had time only to throw some berries, almond milk and choc peanut butter powder in the blender for lunch. A couple of under calorie days won't hurt, but I'm not going to make a habit of it. I feel reall... Read more

Gratitude and Overwhelm
When I feel overwhelmed is an especially good time to make a gratitude list to restore some perpective and keep me going. This has been a tough week, too much to do, too little sleep, and not so great eating on the run. I have only today to do... Read more
Light at the End of the Tunnel?
Friends, thank you for well-wishes this last week or so. I have worked to exhaustion, eaten far too much on the run, slept poorly because I kept waking and thinking of things to do, and am finally winding down after running an estate sale of my... Read more
