poetic me time

Today I joined a poetry group. It felt good to do something just for me. I enjoy hearing and writing poetry. It feeds my soul to create and to be caressed by beauty. I had no idea I was walking into a group that's been together for 9 years. I... Read more

I've been drinking my water and logging and spinning, and stretching and exercising and sparking, and eating my fresh produce and listening to my get up and go music and I'm feeling so much better! I was low on calories and tried a piece of ch... Read more
It's hard to drink all that water
Tuesday, April 12, 2011      6 comments

8 cups is a lot. If I don't start early and keep at it, I get to the evening and try to squeeze it all in....of course, that's a bad idea because than I have interrupted sleep. I feel so different if I drink 8 cups throughout the day. I think... Read more
So hard not to eat too much with good foods
Friday, April 08, 2011      7 comments

I made a thai chicken dinner, healthy, tastes good, too good. I made a daikon and carrot salad. I loaded up on the salad, but I still ate too much. This is my greatest struggle, stopping. Even if it's healthy, can't eat too much. I feel too... Read more
Dancing in a chair

Today I discovered I can dance in a chair. I closed my eyes and felt the music and let my body move to the joy of the sound, as the minutes ticked on I really got into it, I began to heat up and peel off layers! I love danceing, double foot in... Read more
Inactivity is stealing my life choices
Monday, March 07, 2011      5 comments

I want my life back, or at least a new chapter that includes more choices. I haven't been on in a long time. Injuries, sickness and complicated life have sapped my motivation to try. It's costing me life choices. Instead of battling loss of ... Read more
Treading water
Thursday, November 18, 2010      3 comments

I was drowning....bobbing up and down, catching my breath in between holding my breath. Lots of stress was drowning me. At least now I'm remembering to breath. Through the stress I've been fairly reasonable in my eating. I did some emotional... Read more

Every day, every hour, every minute are these intersections that determine our future. I wander through my day making my very long list and trying to multitask my way through it. The intersections for me are usually get to the paper and write ... Read more
There are always excuses
Sunday, August 01, 2010      7 comments

I've been gone since May. Injuries and family crisis. Can't write for long, due to wrist injury. I could write volumes on why I'm gaining, emotionally eating, not moving. Life could be perfect and I could still find excuses. I can't wait for ... Read more

Thursday, May 13, 2010      5 comments

I've been frustrated and losing hope as I've struggled with pain and limited mobility. Today I got some exercises I can do (cardio is out), limited, but at least it makes me feel like I can make progress and feel some control in the situation. ... Read more
Being Healthy takes a lot of time, but so does being fat
Tuesday, May 04, 2010      5 comments

I haven't blogged for quite a while. Partly because I didn't want to face my stall in weight loss. Or my backslide. I haven't even checked the scale, so I don't know how far I slid. Too hard to get that honest. Maybe tomorrow. But I'm workin... Read more

Creativity seems to be my key
Tuesday, February 16, 2010      6 comments

Stress continues in unimaginable doses, with new flavors at every turn. I've discovered if I sculpt, or write for even a tad bit, I ground. I think straighter. I make better choices with my food. I desire to exercise, like creativity opens m... Read more
Under Stress, under seige, underperforming
Friday, January 22, 2010      3 comments

Stress is so powerful. A few blogs back I talked about excuses, there are always some, somewhere. I wanted to be strong under seige, stress coming at me from every quarter. I held up for awhile, then I faultered and stood back up, unsteady. T... Read more
