NOW - A Life of Intention
Monday, June 11, 2018      2 comments

My heart is sad for Charles Krauthammer and his family. His eloquent letter has made an impression on me for several reasons. In particular, his phrase "I lived the life that I intended" strikes quite the chord with me. Over the years, ... Read more

Sunday, May 20, 2018      4 comments

Graduation was yesterday. All in all, a nice day. And now, I work on moving beyond high school. As I told my son - now it is on to YOUR life. Had his grad party yesterday afternoon - then last night, I met my 3 oldest friends for dinner. On... Read more
NOW - On to May
Monday, April 30, 2018      0 comments

May has always been one of my favorite months. I think I wrote about this a coupe years ago. Something about the month of May - spring, warmer weather, the year is still 'fresh', the possibilities are endless...A dear friend is graduating coll... Read more

NOW - Best Year Update
Saturday, April 14, 2018      3 comments

NOW - Reassess and Adapt - or is it an Excuse?
Tuesday, March 27, 2018      1 comments

Another book. Another approach to eating. There's always another plan out there tempting me, promising the way, leading the way to where I want to go...if 'only' I eat this, and not that, or at this time, or in this combination. ... Read more
NOW - Beck 14 - Planning Meals
Wednesday, March 14, 2018      1 comments

I think it's day 14 for Beck. I chose to not participate in a couple days of Beck - felt it was better for me not to do the tasks. I've made an effort for years to plan dinners - but I'm less likely to plan breakfast and lunch - relying on som... Read more

Saturday, March 10, 2018      1 comments

NOW - Beck 6 - A Diet Coach
Tuesday, March 06, 2018      1 comments

I have this with my coaching class. My coach is very much in synch with Beck, so I am covered. I also think of Kriszta11 as a coach for this. Very supportive and encouraging - Thank you! Today was a nasty, drizzly, cold day. Perfect day ... Read more
Now - Beck 5 Mindful eating
Monday, March 05, 2018      2 comments

New goal - once a week ?, once a month?? - set the table with the 'good stuff' and make dinner an affair. Being mindful and savoring my food is something to work on each meal. I can feel the resistance to this program beginning. My mind... Read more
NOW - Beck 4 Give MySelf Credit
Sunday, March 04, 2018      3 comments

I tend to criticize myself more than give myself credit...so, this will be another hard one for me. I used to mark my calendar with little stars for workouts, working out, etc. It worked, as juvenile as it is. I will get back into that habit. ... Read more
