I love YOGA
Monday, October 06, 2008      0 comments

I've always thought of yoga as flexibility but not strength. I've had enough sore muscles to know that I'm getting a strength workout. I also like the chanting. It feels good for my lungs (asthma). I've been feeling really good. After a couple o... Read more
Yoga Yoga
Wednesday, September 03, 2008      0 comments

Last night was the second day in a row of yoga class. I like it and am going tonight as well. The environment is so settled and relaxing. I'm going to the classes that allow time to explain the moves, rather than just move from one to the next. ... Read more
Happy New Year
Tuesday, September 02, 2008      0 comments

I work at a job that starts its fiscal year Sept. 1, so I'm taking this opportunity to start a new me. I signed up yesterday for unlimited yoga at a nearby studio. I've been struggling since my mom died and not exercising. I see this as an oppor... Read more
Gratitude
Wednesday, July 09, 2008      1 comments

I am noticing that I'm feeling more peaceful lately. I am back exercising and eating way less sugar. Don't need it. Yes, I'd like to loose 10 lb but I'm not obsessing on it. I'm actually feeling like it's ok if I don't. I want to create a happy ... Read more
Being Happy
Saturday, July 05, 2008      0 comments

I keep having to remind myself that it's about being happy. My son had an appendectomy on Wed. I was called from work and had to drive to meet him in the emergency room. He was in a lot of pain. I've been running to the hospital every day since ... Read more
Saturday Grace
Saturday, June 21, 2008      1 comments

I continue to read the 4 Day Win. Mostly I'm feeling good about where I am. I feel more relaxed. I have been doing yoga every morning but not much else in the way of exercise. I judge that as being a bad thing and scare myself. I want to stop do... Read more
Grief - Day II
Wednesday, June 11, 2008      2 comments

I had a talk w/my boss today and told her that I'm in full blown grieving. She was very loving and hugged me. I need to not hide my emotions and my process. I feel very supported at work and at home. My partner made me dinner last night. Comfort... Read more
Grief & Eating
Monday, June 09, 2008      0 comments

I realize that my grief over my mother's death will not be ignored. It feels like a physiological response, not an intellectual one. I am less functional in areas where I'm used to being quite competent. Also little things that wouldn't usually ... Read more
The Dictator vs the Wild Child
Thursday, June 05, 2008      0 comments

Today I did a visualization mentioned in the book The Four Day Win that I've been reading all week. It's not the kind of book you gobble up. Mostly I've been reading it in 10 min snippets. I'll read the first ten chapters and then go back and en... Read more

I have read EVERY book on diet & exercise...no kidding...and yet I'm not at a healthy weight nor happy w/my body. so I'm reading another book that I think might actually do it for me...it's called the Four Day Win by Martha Beck. She talks about... Read more
Stayed home today
Thursday, May 15, 2008      1 comments

I've continued making my soup. Yesterday I started having diarrhea and during the nght last night, I started cramping & continued being sick. By morning I knew I couldn't go to work. I don't know if it's all these cooked veggies I've been eating... Read more
Starting Over
Tuesday, May 13, 2008      0 comments

Boy do I hate the concept of starting over. I'd much rather think that I've got this all figured out. After all, I've lost this weight before....on Spark even. I really don't know how I gained it all back over the last two years. I was not being... Read more
Not a Good Day
Friday, May 09, 2008      0 comments

I wish I could report a good day. I got on the scale this morning and the scale is not heading in the right direction. I'm at a loss as to what to do. I've been traveling a lot, which makes having control over my food choices more difficult. I ... Read more
Satan's Sweat
Monday, April 28, 2008      0 comments

Today I heard high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) referred to as "satan's sweat" that is quite a powerful image for me. I try to avoid the hydrogenated fat but lie to myself that "today it's ok" There are so many store bought sweets, cakes, etc. tha... Read more
Being a Good Listener
Thursday, April 17, 2008      0 comments

Ways I'm NOT a good listener: Finish people's sentences for them Give unsolicited advice Be busy all the time Don't say "I want to hear you, but I can't listen right now" Have to be right Care more about myself than the speaker Be... Read more
