I'm back

I'm back. I'm divorced - I didn't cry when I wrote that. That is progress.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. ~Lao Tzu

It's been a hell of a ride. It's time to consider that this journey isn't about losing weight, gaining weight, what not. It really is about getting healthy.

Yes, I want my weight to be less than it is. I actually feel ok.

Less weight will mean that I will likely be able to ditch my blood pressure ...

Less weight will mean that I will likely be able to ditch my blood pressure regulating medication.

Thinking like a thin person means that I need to practice thinking like one while I'm not one. By practicing thinking like one, those thoughts wire new paths in my noggin. This means that my conscious actions slowly become unconscious actions. It's how we learn. How many things do you do that are on autopilot? Thinking like a thin person and acting like one will become autopilot if I practice it.

Member Since: 1/30/2010

SparkPoints: 16,110

Fitness Minutes: 11,852

My Goals:
Track what I consume and how I exercise.

Train for the St. Jude Half Marathon in December. Do so in a manner which reduces likelihood of injury.

Get out of mind and into my body.

My Program:
My program is to eat reasonably and not restrict anything. If I want a cookie, I'm having a cookie. And to track what I eat.

I will work to exercise consistently. I'm training for the St. Jude Half Marathon after I injured myself earlier this year. I've recuperated and am running without pain. I want to run smart.

I will continue working on my daily mindfulness practice.

I am working to get out of my mind and into my body via mindful awareness and to be real by telling people what I really think, in my own way, even if it makes them uncomfortable.

Personal Information:
I'm TzuZen (say it fast!).

I live in the Land of Elvis.

I run with my 14# running partner TJ.

Other Information:
Good books to get out of your mind and into your body:

The Happiness Trap by Russ Harris

The Now Moment by Elisha Goldstein, PhD

When I Say No, I Feel Guilty by Manuel Smith

True Refuge by Tara Brach, PhD

Getting Real by Susan Campbell, PhD

Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life by James Hollis, PhD
