Walking yesterday
Thursday, January 04, 2018      1 comments

My walking goals seem so small compared to everybody else I know, but so far it's working for me. I don't want my goal to be so big that I feel guilty if something comes up, but it needs to be bigger than what I've been doing so that I get a fe... Read more

Saturday, September 21, 2013      2 comments

I'm not feeling motivated, lately, to exercise. Some others on some of my teams are saying the same thing? Just not motivated. I'm wondering why is there so much emphasis on motivation? We do a lot of things we don't really want to do ju... Read more

I read a quote this morning - "It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging our responsibilities." I thought how much that applies to fitness. It's easy to skip "just one day" of exercise but th... Read more

A man recently asked me to take care of his race horse while he was gone. She was a very valuable horse and he expected her to run well and produce many more prize horses. I was supposed to feed her a specific nutritional mix in specific amoun... Read more

This is a very stressful time for me right now, and I feel myself sinking into a depression and lethargy. But emotionally I don't even care. I am very busy at work, and have missed 7 work days out of the last two weeks. We admitted my mo... Read more

When I was at the office Saturday, the gal who works with me had bought me a Milky Way bar. And I ate it. Then Saturday evening we were invited to a small family wedding with three hours notice, so we went to that and I ate some cake and punch... Read more

Yesterday I came home at noon and tried to take a nap, but kept getting disturbed by the phone and people at the door. Then I didn't have much time for lunch so I just grabbed a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and took an apple for later in the... Read more

Christmas is over. The last of the company has gone home this morning. One week from today is the official start of tax season and I have a lot to do between now and then. A whole house to clean with bedding to wash; Christmas decorations to ... Read more

I have had a very busy and stressful time the past month. The first performance of our Christmas musical was last Sunday evening and it went pretty well. Not perfect but very well. There was a nice crowd for the first night so we were all ple... Read more

At the beginning of the year, I made a "resolution" or whatever you would call it, to say yes to any new responsibilities without saying stopping something I was already doing. I really couldn't handle anything more. That worked pretty wel... Read more

I have changed my profile picture to a frog. Fully Rely On God. But it's not an original idea. Actually there was an article in the October Guidepost magazine about a lady who gave away little frog reminders to everyone, even strangers, remin... Read more
