Good early evening Inner Journey!

It feels like things are starting to settle down from moving. Just did minor things today, one load of laundry and organising my pantry better. Otherwise it is worth it to slow it down a little.

I wanted to sit down and write, journal, read and listen to some music which is a smart idea today. Rest and relaxation is a smart thing for recovery in the body when you have been quite busy and zooming along trying to get things in working order when you have moved. Everything is going along fine and just pictures need to be hung and minor things now.

The SO is starting work Wednesday and he has everything set like his suits, clothing, work related items and he likes his routine in the mornings so he is starting out his day properly. We live about 15 minutes from his work and he has mapped out 2 or 3 different routes to get there so he doesn't need to rush or panic if there are issues that morning. In the future he may have to deal with snow so on those days its likely he will use my SUV instead which makes sense. He knows how to drive in snow so that is a plus.

Never mind about him for now though (you know what I mean here) I am getting back into full exercise, cooking properly and being in balance so that things in life run smoothly and I am able to handle everything I need to. Also and have fun with life~

Happy weekend everyone!!!

Had a great weekend out of town with my mom. Good food (and healthy), fantastic hotel and love our new hairdos! I was able to do some clothes shopping and am now in a 22/24 at Lane Bryant in tops, with one a 18/20. That is the size I wore when I met my now DH 11yrs ago. PLUS an added bonus I am down 4# from 2 weeks ago. So all around spot on!

It's nice to be back home after 2 1/2 weeks away. I've been getting the house in order and haven't had time to write in my journal for at least 5 days. Today I am going to make that a priority!

SO HAPPY TO HEAR YOUR CAT MADE THE TRIP WITHOUT PROBLEMS. I THINK IS MOST INTELLIGENT TO SKIP going out in the snow. That is a totally new concept for him. What a project moving is, especially over such a distance. Hope everything contines to go smoothly for you.

Hi everyone, its been a very busy time!

The SO has a new job not I Linndy but thank you all the same for that! The moving is the major thing we are dealing with right now! It is snowing here today! I flew in last night and I have my cat who is fascinated a bit with the snow but he's not going out in it because he is smart lol! He is one of the more intelligent cat breeds though. He loves his new cat tree, litter box and toys. He came off his medication quick enough last night and so he is drinking and eating fine. He is exploring his new surroundings and he will be fine outdoors when he can go out!

In the house we have the utilities hooked up and we have air conditioning and heat, I have on the wood fireplace right now. I like the fireplace very much. After work the SO and I will Skype and chat because he is missing me and the young lady will be with her Mom this weekend. Its only 2 weeks now before the permanent move so we'll be together again very soon since I am leaving here mid week and the sister will have my cat at her house for about a week and I'll be back soon so he doesn't feel like I left him alone. He'll be temperamental anyhow for a spell its just his temperament being Russian Blue!

I am doing as much as I can here though to be ready for unpacking and handling all of that which relocating requires. Paolo says this weekend he will finish up the kitchen that can be packed like dishes, silverware and all of that. I have this house set up so necessities are ready like paper plates and utensils, paper towels, toilet paper, wipes and all of that!

In the home stretch~

I was not a real Prince fan, but am sorry that he has passed away. He contributed in more ways tan music.

Congrats, Tracey, for getting in the short hike and the walk.

Kayah, congrats to you SO on the new job. I think the Denver area would be a nice place to live. I would have to adjust to driving in snowy conditions. That is still a big job moving so far.

I too was sad when I heard Prince had passed away. Loved him and his music. He was more than just a musician

Really feeling sad that Prince passed away! Such a humanitarian and wonderful human being! Such an ICON! I went to see him in concert twice and he gave everything on that stage. Only Robin Williams and David Bowie have affected me as much. I appreciate life a lot more because I was exposed to these 3 men~

Hot spring day here. Got in a walk on my break. Still a good pace at 21 min mile, and got in 1.31 miles. But my left knee is still sore from Saturday. I can't remember where I post..too many teams and I lose track :-) But DH and I spend the day out Saturday. I did my very first (ridiculously short) hike, but nonetheless I was very proud of myself. I would not have been able to do it before. We went far enough up the canyon we had to turn around because too much snow on the road and it was deep enough that our truck that it was rubbing on the under carriage. But it was beautiful. Took lots of pictures. Went to 2 different rivers and then stopped at the Rocky Reach Dam to go see fish and the museum. Hadn't been there in a long time.

Today I was so stressed first thing when I got to work, I was bombarded with stuff. I turned off my dance music and changed to some Christian music by Kutless and Third Day. Have been trying to slow down and focus on the words to get me through the day.

Yes, I am moving permanently from Sin City to the Denver area for my SO's job. He likely would have passed up the career defining role but we discussed it and the positives outweigh the negatives. Plus our teenager will be in a fabulous school for her high school years. That factored into our decision greatly! I can work from anywhere so the move was put in motion. Our house here is packed up for the most part and ready to go, just waiting for the young lady to finish school in a few weeks.

The SO is wrapping things up at his business and training his replacement so his office is in capable hands. When we get to Colorado he will have about 10 days off and he will help unpack as much as he can and put the exercise room together. Also he will get our cars registered in the first few days and receive the new Washer & Dryer we ordered. We sold this house and the new owners wanted the appliances we had and we were okay with that idea since they paid for my top of the line French Door Refrigerator and Washer & Dryer outright that are only a year and a half old. Then the SO has training and getting up to speed before he assumes his position by the end of May.

Good thing you figured out what was causing your reaction for the itchies. My teenager had a reaction to stain remover I used once so I passed it on to someone who could use it and bought a different stain fighting agent. She had a reaction to Oxy Clean powder and switched to Spray & Wash for her and she is fine.

Had a busy day with a few mishaps but all is well now and I have a free plane flight for when I bring my cat here by plane in a few weeks. Plus my sister had me dealing with her garage door this morning before I went to the airport The repairman finished with about 15 minutes to spare before my UBER driver picked me up and deposited me at DIA! I am looking at what is for dinner for my family tonight, probably a chili or chicken tortilla soup with chips and a chocolate caramel pudding for dessert since I just made a batch of pudding for the young lady. The SO missed me but I'll be here for a spell before I take my cat back to our home and acclimate him for a few days before I fly home and 2 days later we drive back here!

I didn't realize you were moving. That is a big job.

My rash is somewhat better today but parts still itch. We are pretty sure Kirkland laundry detergent was the culprit. With the prednisone dose to one tablet a day, my appetite is returning. Hope I don't gain all the weight I lost back.

Hello Ladies, glad to see some chatting going on. I have been so busy and a little break from a lot of Spark was a good thing to get it all complete! Think I can handle my work, exercise, moving and Journaling a lot better now~

Sandy-What is your creative bible journaling? That sounds very interesting! Glad you are getting your creativity back. I am trying to rejuvenate my creativity as well.

Tracy-Glad you are feeling better and working to not have a crash in the afternoon!

I am back on Spark. My life has finally started to calm down. I am doing creative Bible journaling now. It is amazing how relaxing it is for me. I continue to do adult coloring apps and plan to purchase so books this week. It has really brought back my creativity. I was really in a ditch with my creativity for a while.

I am happy that the HTR is helping. Before I retired I use to hit the wall about 4 p.m. So I know that feeling. It is hard to fight the cravings that come with it. Congrats on all the walking you have been doing.

I started taking my HTR last Tuesday and am taking it daily now. What a HUGE difference! Today I noticed that I feel calm again, my moods don't swing out of control and I'm not (generally) turning to food with my moods.

I also realized something this afternoon as I grabbed 2 fun size milky way bars. I work so hard and fast in the morning and I always hit the wall about 3:00. That is the time of day that I fight with wanting to eat to keep awake. I have snacks like nuts on hand and string cheese and some fruit. I ate a huge apple hoping that would help today, but it didn't. So I will just drink some extra water today. I will still be within my nutritional range, just completely out of balance. But I'm not giving up.

I have gotten in some walking this week, with the exception of Monday. I have walked 5.40 miles these last few days, which is really pushing myself. I just have to be careful of my bad knee.

I mostly do Morning-Pages-style journaling. I AM working through a personal growth journaling book chapter by chapter right now. It's called The Kind Self-Healing Book by Amy Eden. I really like it. She also has blog that I would recommend. :)

Hi, all. I have been having computer problems and have been offline. So glad to be back on. But we are seriously looking at a new computer.

Hi, all. emoticon

I'm happy it's Monday--this means I have some alone time after a busy weekend. I finally had time to write in my journal after making many attempts and being interrupted on Sunday and Saturday. I'm reading 'The Kind Self-Healing Book' by Amy Eden. It's a workbook-style personal growth book with lots of writing exercises.

oh my gosh, I am so ready for the weekend! Its TOM Menopause style. My mood swings are crazy and exhausting! I see my doctor next month to see if there is some medication (I don't want Premarin) that might help with my depression and extreme anxiety. I mean, I am doing the things for "me" with my healthier lifestyle and my daily walks are my therapy. And DH and I are going to start doing and evening walk with the dogs. I just do not have the coping skills to handle all of the stresses in my life and I am not shy about asking for medication if it will help and doesn't cost a fortune!

Been eating everything in sight. I know it is hormone related, but dang. Thankfully tomorrow is payday, so we get some fresh fruits, veggies and meats. Been rather sparse this past week in the kitchen.

It has been a gorgeous spring day here. sunny skies, no wind and 63*. Fabulous walk on lunch break. Walked 2.08 miles and had time to cool down before racing back to my desk.

When we fix corned beef and cabbage here at home, we don't add salt. Works well. I love that dish. Cabbage was my favorite veggie when I was a kid.

I've never liked corned beef and cabbage, but glad you liked it. Sorry it brought about bad symptoms! I've been eating lighter foods so I don't have that run down nasty feeling from foods that don't agree with me.

Glad you are feeling better and up to Sparking and Journaling again~

Hi, All. I got too much salt with corn beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day. We had enough for leftovers, so I had it two days. The result was a bad round with Meniere's symptoms. I either slept or read yesterday. Feeling back to normal today so I can be journaling and sparking again.

Have a great week, everyone.

Hi. I just got home. The birthday party was fun and my BIL's shoulder surgery went well.

How awful about your glasses. Hope you get them fixed soon. I would be lost without mine.

Hugs, Linn

Eek, my screw came out of my glasses and the glass popped out! I didn't bring my eyeglass repair kit with me, bad times lol! When it rains it pours! Okay, no stressing about it. I couldn't see to repair it anyhow I don't think! Can't drive without my glasses and I don't think we have an eyeglass repair down the road where I could walk to! It'll get done, either today or tomorrow~

I'm fine because I don't keep chocolate or candy in the house! Yeah beans are usually the culprit when you feel fiber or digestion issues, go easy~

I backed off increasing the fiber so quickly. I am doing well at 18 or 19 grams a day. Now I will see if I can increase to 20. All the spinach, broccoli, brussel sprouts, etc. don't seem to be a problem. It was when I ate so many pinto beans that I had a problem. I have backed them up to 1/2 cup a day for now.

Keep avoiding that chocolate unless you can eat just one and put the rest away. Me, I am still working on that cut off button.

Hugs

Yes be careful when you increase your fiber intake! I am always careful because my digestion and system lets me know when I increase too fast. Yes, Linndy I don't know how i avoided chocolate this last time so it wasn't too bad thankfully~

I have been tracking and increasing my fiber intake. I know one has to build up slowly, but I think I overdid with the beans today. My stomach is letting me know.

Good job avoiding chocolate, Myaka.

I am looking forward to the end of TOM but if I follow the females in my family I have a good 10 years left before that comes along~

No chocolate yet for this TOM, I seem to be okay which is nice after being ill for 2 weeks~

Prior to that I would enjoy an entire bag of Hershey kisses with almonds that week. emoticon emoticon Hasn't happened since though. emoticon

I really never craved any certain food because I don't like sweets so much. If I get tired enough I do reach for carbs like pizza! I drink enough water, eat the right foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner so I don't crave any foods usually. If its TOM I do enjoy chocolate though~

It does take a while to change habits. It took me 24 weeks to stop craving ice cream. Before I could not let it be as long as it was in the house. Now I simply forget about it.

I struggle with eating breakfast but have been trying really hard to eat. Sometimes I just have toast. Sometimes fruit. I'm trying to slowly build that to oatmeal or toast and eggs. As a kid, I never ate breakfast either so it's really hard for me to start eating it. My gut usually isn't ready for food in the morning. lol! I've been eating something for breakfast now for about a month but I still struggle with food in the morning.

You can do this! I believe in you. You ARE doing this!

Sounds good. I usually have an egg on toast, omelet full of veggies and cheese, oatmeal or French toast. And always some kind of fruit. Sometimes my DH who cooks at our house makes a spinach or kale and cheese quiche. Love those. I sometimes add turkey sausage.

Breakfast and dinner are my main meals since I am on my own for lunch usually. One day I decided I couldn't face cooking another meal and we were eating take out. So DH took over as chef.

I have an egg sandwich about 4 times a week. I use whole grain bread with a little bit of cheese and the eggs are over hard! I sometimes have quinoa, fruit, or leftovers for the morning meal. Once in a while soup or quinoa with black beans. I limit bread as much as I can most of the time! I am trying to eat more fruit, I eat vegetables like they are going out of style!

I will be so glad when my cough is completely gone! I feel good beyond that still hanging on! Still having trouble getting back to walking but I'll be okay with other exercise until I can get my mojo back. I need to get it back soon because I am feeling a little bit of depression symptoms. I'll be okay though. exercise always alleviates feeling bad. I need to eat dinner soon~
