  • ...and then *everything changed* (for the better!)

    2/18/2017 6:25:11 PM, by SAMZA83

    Hello everyone, I am not sure how many of you are still active…it would be reasonable after all to think that I too have disappeared. I am more of a happy spirit that shows up from time to time. When I read my old blog posts here I cringe, somewhat in embarrassment in how willing I wa... Read more

  • Caregiving Becomes a Breeze??

    2/11/2017 4:05:10 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Being new to caregiver can be extremely trying. If you are caring for another, you can just about double what you have to do for yourself. Only with yourself, you feel free to skip steps from day to day. When caring for someone else, usually your own sense of conscientiousness keeps your feet to the... Read more

  • Listening to my internal self!

    2/10/2017 2:11:01 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    I have splurged this week, almost every day. I have gotten home and made dinner and sat on my butt the rest of the night for most of the week. You know what? I do not care! I did lose another 1.5-2 lbs this week. I am holding steady. It did not go up after I ate that chocolate bar, not once th... Read more

  • All about Belle

    2/8/2017 4:49:03 PM, by RONDARC

    It's been a stressful and heartbreaking few weeks for Belle and us. She's been to 2 different vets, several x-rays and blood tests with nothing being found wrong except a high white count on her blood tests. She's taken 2 different antibiotics and has been on an anti-inflammatory since the ... Read more

  • What Will You Be Doing During the Super Bowl?

    2/4/2017 5:10:21 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    My wife has a good friend who is doing a poetry reading at that time. I'll likely take her to that. Although I would like to duck out from that and go to my favorite Vietnamese restaurant for a bowl of Pho, I will probably hang around to show my support. Glenn... Read more

  • Mini Goals February28

    2/4/2017 4:11:13 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    I have decided to set up mini goals for each month. Last month it was to hit my step goal daily, which I failed to do the 2 nights I was at a conference. One night I swear I met the goal it logged it, but the next day is showed I was short. The second day I just did not have any time to get any s... Read more

  • Distress Over the Nation, Part II

    2/4/2017 11:38:20 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    Yesterday, I wrote that due to my distress at what is going on at a national level, I would try withdrawing from some of the news, and step up my reading program for some of the books I have. But now I am realizing I can't bury my head in the sand. I have to keep informed and aware and keep commenti... Read more

  • Distress Over the Nation

    2/3/2017 1:59:30 PM, by WEARINGTHIN

    What to do about the great distress I feel watching our country under it's current leadership? I feel powerless watching lot of the BS go on. Most recently, it was Kellyann Conway spreading a brand new story that showed a real lack of cautiousness with the facts. The press secretary, Kellyann, an... Read more

  • Honesty is a Part of Healthy and Wise Living.

    1/30/2017 5:56:55 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    If you can't be honest with others, you likely can't be honest with yourself. If you can't be honest with yourself, you will not be able to make the tough self-assessments we need every once in a while to make various adjustments in our lives. And I might add, if you can't be honest with your... Read more

    Than from any other cause. Also, one out of every two people will get cancer in their lifetimes. So taking care of your heart and arteries, as well as having an anti-cancer approach in your life will greatly enhance your wellbeing, and may well lead to longer and healthier life. Glenn...

  • Learning how to listen to my body.

    1/29/2017 1:05:34 PM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    Today I was challenged to eat intuitively. Not measure and not use a clock to tell me when to eat, but allow my body to tell me to eat and how much. It is quite strange to choose today to do this as I prep my foods for the week. I keep wondering if I will eat too much, or not enough? I also wond... Read more

  • Progress report: Third month of diet plan.

    1/27/2017 4:20:28 AM, by WEARINGTHIN

    The plan was to increase fruits and vegetables to 9 per day. Also, to reduce fats. This was the anti-cancer diet. I went on it, and in eght weeks, lost 10 lbs. That was two and a half weeks ago. Now, I am up by two pounds from that eight week low. I haven't been getting in all of my fruits and veggi... Read more

  • What are my long term goals?

    1/23/2017 11:02:11 AM, by SEAOFCARNAGE

    It is an interesting question. Months ago I would have said weight loss for sure. I might have even said to build up my self esteem. But in this moment what are my long term goals is a question I have no immediate answer for. Things have changed for me over the last two years. I have hit ... Read more
