Restaurant eating and choosing
Friday, January 08, 2010      2 comments

I forgot to eat. At 2:30 I went out to eat, it was my only choice, circumstantially. I thought of ordering what I usually would in this particular restaurant, but this time I changed it. I made it healthier. Fruit instead of potatoes. I tho... Read more
Choosing Life
Thursday, January 07, 2010      3 comments

When I get overwhelmed, I become a victim of life, I react to the stress by trying to cope, often in dysfunctional and temporary solutions - munching, video gaming, tv. When I get ahead of the curve, I choose how to manage being overwhelmed - w... Read more

Okay, on my last post I admitted I'd been lazy. I tried to change my ways....but there were so many many excuses...I think the biggest hurdle was coping with severe sleep deprivation with the newborn. He's slept through the nig... Read more
Facing the facts-I'm being lazy
Thursday, November 19, 2009      3 comments

I quit paying attention again. I ate what I wanted, when I wanted, as much as I wanted. I didn't bother to make time to exercise, but I had time to play video games. I got lazy. Sure I was tired, sleep deprived, I could come up with a hundre... Read more

I've been floundering, noncommital , wandering between lifestyles-scripts(sculptor, day trader, photography, writing, parent, partner, home remodeller, homemaker, inventor), doing a little of everything, but nothing enough to feel I've done it a... Read more
losing weight - accidently
Monday, September 28, 2009      4 comments

I'm losing weight, slow, but steady. I was trying: more exercise, logging everything, then I got too busy. A strange thing happened, I kept losing! I expected for the numbers to come up. I even had some occasional unhealthy food choices, I... Read more
Another Monday another start
Monday, September 14, 2009      3 comments

Mondays feel like a fresh start. I'm quite ADD so any pattern for me is certainly a challenge. Once I have one, though, I'm good to go, unless I miss a day. Somewhere I read research had determined that 21 days established a habit. I've establ... Read more
Struggling to stay focused
Tuesday, September 08, 2009      6 comments

It seems this journey has been 5 steps forward and 3 steps back. I'm still ahead, heading in the right direction, but it's very slow. I get on a roll, get into a pattern, then life throws me a curve and I'm out of the loop. I stop my walks, s... Read more
Hiking in the Redwoods
Thursday, August 13, 2009      8 comments

One year ago I could barely walk. 6 months ago I was still very unstable, uneven ground was scarey. I hiked for miles in the Redwoods! I walked on rocky beaches. I climbed steep inclines. I was sore and I recovered within 24 hours - with no... Read more

Officially this is day 10 of our 12 day vacation. 2 days are travel days. Today is the first day I feel on vacation. I'm finally off all meds - it's been 24 hours. I feel so much better. I think the meds were part of the problem. We spent 4... Read more

Getting over the hump of healing. Still trying to reduce meds. Started eating. Started walking. Still fairly weak. It's amazing how much strength you can lose in 19 days of inactivity combined with minimal food, water and sleep + pain and me... Read more

Thursday, July 16, 2009      2 comments

It's a job. Balancing the need to manage pain and the process of withdrawal is tough. Tonsillectomies are not for the faint of heart. Side effects of drug - versus - side effect of withdrawal - versus pain. The pain keeps me from sleeping, e... Read more

I was so drugged when I did that last blog. I can't believe I could write. It's been really down hill since then. I'm still drugged, oxycocone. Now I have to start withdrawals after 9 days of being on it 24/7. I had my right tonsil removed d... Read more
