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.

Just do it no matter what!

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.

Just do it no matter what!

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.

Just do it no matter what!

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.

Just do it no matter what!

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.

Earthseame, if you have any good journaling topics to share, please do. We appreciate new ideas and topics. I am happy that you finally had time to start writing in your journal. emoticon

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.

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~

Oh my gosh Kayah, I KNOW what you mean about chocolate and TOM. Seemed like that used to go hand in hand with me. lol! After hysterectomy, that all ended...thankfully. lol! 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.

Just do it no matter what!

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!

Yes coughs last forever it does seem! Had a piece of pizza earlier it feels like its still in my stomach really. Had an egg sandwich for breakfast and a soup for late lunch, it was good though!

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~

Hi friends, been pretty sick this week with a cough and a bad headache. I couldn't open my eyes much until yesterday evening. I haven't been sick like this in many years. I would like to avoid whatever this was. I feel a lot better but feel pretty weak so it will be a few days before I am back to myself completely~

It's the beginning of new flyer delivery week - yeah - not. I finally hit tr wall yesterday; fell asleep shortly after 7 pm and likely would have slept straight through except DD came home. At least I got my full 8 hours and today am rearing to go. Had an early morning walk and watched the sun peek up on the horizon but think it got lost somewhere because all I see now are grey cloudy skies.
Hope everyone had a great day!!

Congrats on watching your food intake at your niece's birthday party.

I am working on stopping my sweet tooth. I can go for a month and then it flares up again.


I read an article on SP about foods that help with ones fluid intake. I hadn't realized that broccoli contained so much water. That's great as I eat a lot of broccoli.

Everyone have a super Sunday.

Just do it no matter what!

Had a busy day today with my niece's birthday party, was moderate with food and drink. Had quinoa for breakfast and dinner! A small piece of cake was lemon, didn't have frosting because it was quite sweet~

I just took an hour walk and then came in, have over 8000 steps. About to shower, change, cook dinner and head out to a midweek talk. Will be back round 930pm tonight and catch up to everything! Good weather in store for a spell now~

Have a Happy Favourite Thursday!

I am here waiting for you to drop in. Can't wait to send you a goodie.

I was rooting for Denver also. I mainly wanted Manning to retire on the high of winning another Super Bowl. emoticon win!!!

Since I lead the Biggest Loser Black Panther team, I was happy to see the Carolina Panthers make it to the Super Bowl, too. emoticon

The emoticon is shining in the CA desert. Really nice today. All of you in those cold areas emoticon , keep warm and safe.

Happy Valentine's Day, hope it was a good one! I had a lovely one since I received 2 presents. A Broncos long t-shirt and a ruby and emerald necklace! I bought myself a pair of boots on sale earlier as well~

I'm still on a high from the Broncos win! Tomorrow is the parade down in Denver, I don't care for crowds. I will watch the parade on the tele I do believe since I have a meeting from 10am-1pm.

I have enjoyed my first snow event and I have acclimated to the cold pretty much! If there is not too much ice tomorrow then I will take a walk outside. I made most of my 10K steps indoor today which is quite a bit wiser.

Weighed myself earlier today, 116 is the lowest I have been in a very long time. I thought I wanted to be between 118-121 and I feel good but 116 is quite good. I feel fabulous but how lean is too lean? Questions...

20 pts for the team. I am so ready for warmer temps! We are still in mid 30's. But the sun is trying to peak. So I am planning on a walk along the riverfront on my lunch break today.

Yesterday turned into a complete disaster. Not happy with my eating, bad mood from office drama and then not walking on break. turned into a bit whirlwind and over flowed onto DH when I got home. I was so exhausted, I pretty much passed out in my chair after dinner at 7:00 and then went to bed at 10:00.

Here in Denver, going to take a walk soon even if its round 40F! The end of the week means 60F temps so I am taking advantage of that! Its sunny though so you get enough light here~

So today is when I am going to Denver, its cold there but not snowing! I have to take a warm coat with me certainly but unless I am exercising I am going to be mostly indoors I am thinking, yes! When I get there I will have to go to the grocery and get a few things, soy milk is one!
I am just about packed up though and about to head into the shower shortly, just taking care of a few last minute things before I forget something that I need. I will be offline until tomorrow more than likely~

I'm wondering what was I thinking about going to Denver in January! Here its nearing 70F this week and I am going to be wearing my winter clothes, sigh lol! I'll be in the same place where the Broncos are playing for the AFC Championship though so there is that! With the weather that cold it will remind me of living back in Seattle I think~

Brr! Do the kids go out on the playground when it's so cold? Maybe switch from step counting to counting Squats, push ups, or sit ups, (something that can be done indoors) until it's a tad warmer!

Feeling anxious because our typical Manitoba winter weather has descended with a vengeance. -23C today; with wind chill feels like -30C. Tonight we will reach a low of -38C. It is very uncomfortable (if not dangerous) to be outside in such conditions and on the days when I don't have to go out I don't. The down side of not getting out means I feel cooped up, unfocused, and more than a tad agitated. I do not enjoy walking in the halls of the apartment block, especially when it requires 2 solid hours to get my daily steps. Even if I break it down into shorter bits of time it just feels like drudgery. As both of my jobs require that I be outside for extended periods of time (delivering flyers and playground duty at the school) I am dreading next week because this weather trend is expected to hang around for several weeks at least.
I find myself sighing a lot and I only do that when I am stressed.

I read this on Facebook earlier and felt this would be interesting to post here, have a fabulous Thursday~

Breathe. You're going to be okay. Breathe and remember that youve been in this place before. Youve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you've survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings cant break you. They're painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you'll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.

Its rainy here this week out in the desert where I live. I do recall living in Seattle and for every day in January it rained every single day. I recall the newscaster being excited about that.

I am headed to Denver at the end of next week for an undetermined length of time right now! I will be with internet though so never fear. I am getting my personal life in order over the next few days so that I can have way less stress and drama in my life~

I am still working on goals for fitness, not certain what they may be yet. Just continuing on with what I have been doing so far. Next week I should be able to continue regular strength training though~

I may be on my way to Denver for a few weeks on a work related assignment, it would be good to get away from the crazy houses for a spell! I have always enjoyed traveling and having new experiences so I am happy about that idea!

Its cold here but usually by February it is lighter and brighter, much warmer in the days so to get through January is fine. I am figuring out my goals for the first half of this year. The SO and I have decided we are moving during the summer this year no matter what we need to do to make it happen. Good times~

Happy New Year~

Sandy-

Glad you have combined your prayer and journal in one! I was thinking of buying an adult colouring book as well just for a stress reliever! I have a small Hello Kitty colouring book, I think it came from Target for a buck. I have colored pencils, crayons and markers!

I am going to keep up my blog, personal journal and try and keep a written record journal of what I am experiencing with my Mom and her dementia because maybe a book will come out of this experience that can help others navigating the rocky road with their Loved One's! There has to be more resources and help for families than there is now. Most of the time families are left devastated financially on top of emotionally. It can be a real shame for the LO's family when they pass away because they have little resources left and a hard road ahead because of what they did to make their LO's last days as good as they could do so. My Dad is 77 now and not certain how long my Mom (or brother) will live and be with us on the earth.

Just have to be grateful for the good times and bear through the ugly times with my Mom because she has a vicious tongue when she is having her episodes. I am glad I have a fairly thick skin but words can hurt you a lot~

Whoops sorry Sandy I meant this post to be more about you but sometimes the words just flow out of me and I need to not have others be overwhelmed by my posts, thanks for your update on your work~

Hello, I am back after a few days absence! I had a quiet Christmas which is better than an overdone, miserable Christmas! Granted my Mom was acting wild so she went to my brother's home which I was fine with because dementia is a tiresome disease to have to deal with all the time now. I walked today for over 13K steps and Sunday I did over 15K steps; yesterday was a rest day because it was too darned cold for me outside. I have done yoga and a little cardio but little strength training since my doctor recommended no lower body work until he checks me in the second week of January.

I have had gumbo, turkey and other good foods lately but in moderation. I can feel my body have the physical symptoms of stress dealing with Mom but you do what you have to in life with your LO's so they are alright. I hope someday families do not have to go through dementia in its many forms. It can wear you out mentally and some dementia sufferers fool everyone else in the family and we look like we are in the wrong.

I was happy to know my Uncle knows what is going on somewhat because my Mom visited with her sister and he during October and she was going through hallucinations then but he only said something now for some reason, sigh. Well hopefully my Aunt knows something is not right with Mom and I don't know about my brother. I have let my sister in Denver know what is going on so she is aware of it!

Okay enough just an update to let you all know in case I am a little less active sometimes in spurts. It is pretty cold here right now with 30F at night and a good amount of frost in the mornings, it is cold. In February we'll be much warmer so a little but of cold now is alright.

Hello all,

I have recommitted myself to journaling daily. I have combined my prayers and journal in one journal. I also have been doing adult coloring which has given me peace and open up my creativity.

Hope you all have had a great Christmas

HI Inner Journey-

Just thought I would make a brief statement tonight. I have been busy for a few days but I'm a bit stressed right now. I'll figure it out soon enough.

Gumbo maybe for Christmas Eve, turkey for Christmas and dessert I don't know yet, trying to keep my cool in a high stress time with the family. I am pretty tired in some ways but I'll find a way to muddle through~

Hello Inner Journey-

I have had a good amount of sleep so I can have a productive day perhaps more so than I have been able to this last week. Pain will slow you down for sure. I was able to walk more than I have been this morning which is lovely since the staying off my leg has my feet swelling up. It will alleviate more as I am able to be more active. I have been using a heating pad and taking a dose of pain pills once a day. I elevate my leg as much as I can also.

Its sunny but cool today, quite bright. I am glad to be done with baking, decorating and Christmas cards for the year. Shopping as well because its hard to do with an injured leg. I was thinking of not attending Christmas services this year because of the leg but I may be able to do it depending upon how the week goes. If i cannot midnight mass with the Pope is likely on the agenda.

Have a good Saturday and get in some good exercise, water and healthy eating~

Hello Inner Journey-

Today I did a little shopping and my leg held up okay. It is a bit sore but I needed to get up more because I am noticing swelling with less activity on my feet. Trying to not let that happen and get my leg healed. Had one dose of pain pills and it is all I need so far.

Not sure yet what is for dinner but wrote out and sent a few Christmas cards, found out the plan for Christmas and it should be a little more quiet and a few less visitors this year which is fine by me if you want to know the truth of it!

I like sitting up in my office at night and look at all of the Christmas lights, I am going to try and head out this next week in the neighborhood and see all of the lights everyone has put up. Thinking of looking at who is doing the Bowl Games this upcoming week. I know who is playing New Years Eve and beyond. Sometimes these little Bowl Games can get exciting as well though.

Hello Inner Journey, today I have a Christmas Party at the young lady's school, I'll eat an hour before I head over with the cupcakes and surprises! I only want to have a little salad while I am there with a strawberry lemon cupcake after. I'll probably bring a Chai with me and switch to water if need be! I am going to stay off my leg so I can avoid taking pain pills as much as I can.

I haven't had insomnia lately but I could do better with my sleep time. I am getting in the fiber, protein, water and carbs so I stay in my calorie range daily. I am going to find the bows for my Christmas tree, I don't know where they got off to when they were put away last year. I wrote a few remaining Christmas cards last night and will put them in the mail drop before I head out. The fridge is pretty full so I don't need to cook tonight, leftovers are good days.

The young man will be home sometime today and the other 3 will need to get their shopping done by this weekend since next week there are parties and functions to deal with for the most part. I am having fun this holiday by not overdoing it and stressing myself out with too much activity. I can't stand much anyhow so whatever needs doing I'll have to sit on it lol!

I have made bourbon balls for gifts, a carrot cake with my Mom, a lemon cake with chocolate frosting for my Dad's function, 3 types of cupcakes for the young lady today and early next week I will need to make a spiced brownie bar for the SO's Christmas party lunch Wednesday! After that I am done with the baking jag. I tried a bourbon ball after breakfast to see how the fermenting is coming, it tastes pretty mellow since I used bourbon whiskey, very nice. I think the young man wants Gumbo and a chocolate pecan cake and he is fine with everything else. I need to make a Savory Party Mix for myself and it will seem like New Years lol!

Have a good day, favourite Thursday is here~

How is everyone doing this mid-December? Almost done with your winter chores or tasks to get ready for Christmas? Are you taking time for yourself and getting in exercise, good nutrition and sleep? How are you having fun this holiday? What will you do to ensure you do not overeat or have too many sweets or savory foods? Are you giving yourself a Christmas present of healthy habits and positivity? Are you taking time to see to your hobbies and interests?

Let's have a little chat this holiday and into the New Year so we can encourage and motivate one another!

Happy Sunday, Inner Journey. Hope all is well wherever you are!

I signed up for a Journaling course where they send a prompt a day for 30 day Journaling Challenge and I am at day 6 today! Basically there are 2 prompts a day so by the end there will have been 60 prompts! Very fun and engaging! I don't want to get popped for copyright infringement so I will revise the Questions and use the ideas for the September Journal Ideas I do believe.

I am keeping a log in my online journal so that I can refer to it if I need any journaling ideas, prompts, questions, pictures for prompts, experiences etc...My Facebook gives me many ideas from things I have liked alone. I resisted Facebook for a long time because of privacy issues now I am like how have I lived without this. I am an organised type and its making many other sites I use obsolete because I can find the Like on Facebook and its centralized, so much nicer!

I've been a bit of a busy bee this morning if you can tell by my posting a few more things in different areas! I'll be keeping a few people busy including myself for a spell. Had time to walk, do Strength Training and stretching this morning already. Yoga and a bit more walking is later and I'll be done for the day. BLC-28 is over Wednesday and it was too busy for me this last go round so I am making sure that doesn't happen for #29!

Feeling fine physically now that my insomnia from last week is over, I really dislike it when that happens makes me think I should be a permanent member of the Sleep Challenge!

I am so gratified to see so many either re-committing to journaling or finding the prompts helpful! I keep an online Journal on LiveJournal, I keep my serious writing (stories, poetry, short story ideas) on WordPress. I keep a daily organizer because I am an organised, planning type and finally I keep a long hand journal in a Moleskine!

I was thinking of bugging Moleskine to lobby Hello Kitty to a Moleskine! That would make my life probably lol. I would like to have a cell phone cover for her but that isn't totally paramount right now. Moleskine is a nice idea! I know I could sticker to my heart's content through a Moleskine...

I am working with the prompts myself since I am able to breathe a little more these days. BLC 28 is almost over and I can use the break honestly. I love the BLC but this session has been truly very busy with my household projects and family time going on. Next go round I'll be the Strength Training lady so I have work to do there, but I have already begun formulating the activities from week to week! I want to do NaNoWriMo in November and that is the entire month of writing or whenever I finish it out. Plus NFL football is important to me during the season, I want time for all of theses activities through the end of the year.

Proper planning is all it takes for me, plus exercise is on the agenda, spending time with the family etc...

I am also resolved to re-commit to journaling this month. I have basically been treading water for the past few months, making little progress. The journaling prompts for August caught my attention and I am excited about trying to develop a few of them.

Hi all,

I am going to transfer from an electronic journal to a paper journal. I have downloaded a journaling workbook and I want to start it this week in order to improve my dedication to journaling.

I decided to start making an informal goal of using the Inner Journey journaling prompts more often. I'd like to use each month's prompts at least once each.

I've not been doing well lately with my fitness goals, in fact I'm on a huge backslide in general. I'm hoping that journaling will help me get back on track.

Hi all

I have been doing a lot of oral journaling with positive self talk to review my day before bed. It has helped me to get a better night sleep.

Hope you all are doing well.
