I'm not good about keeping this updated

Saturday, May 23, 2009

Let's see, what can I say on Memorial day weekend?

That I didn't over-eat yesterday... one good day in the bank, and it was a vacation day to boot, extra points for that.

  


A time of hope...

Saturday, February 28, 2009

Isn't that a movie title, somewhere?

When I think back on all my fitness/health efforts that were successful, most of them began around the end of February. The sun is present for more hours of the day by this time, and one's disgust with the hibernation of Winter sets in. On this side of the globe, anyway.

Today the outdoors looks like winter. There is more snow still falling, and it is piling up, probably higher than it has all season. But it is difficult to take it too seriously today.

    That second paragraph could have been written by me! I still have a hard time believing you came from the same place as I because I have only known you as you ARE....SUCCESSFUL! emoticon

Building the first good week... one day at a time.

Thursday, January 22, 2009

I was mentioning to a co-worker today how much better I have felt this week, when I've taken the time and made the effort to eat properly. How is it that we forget this so easily: the body just plain functions better and feels healthier!

So, having got three days in a row of decent nutrition, here's a little trick I've been using: skim milk.

Remember when your mother used to tell you (well, my mother used to say this): "Drink your milk and fill up the cracks". This was usually intoned at the dinner table, when we were finished with what was on the plate and half a glass of milk remained.

What I have discovered, as an adult, is that drinking a glass of skim milk *does* fill up the cracks. I'm not hungry, so I stop eating. So my very loose plan is to drink 3 cups of skim milk a day, and modest portions of my other foods.

It's working... little by little. And I'm sleeping better. Amazing.

  


Mid-month update

Monday, January 19, 2009

It's been a little spotty, but the last two days have been good. Motivation is key. Deciding that it is worth the little bit of extra effort to give my body the care it needs and deserves. That doesn't mean deprivation... it means nutrition... it means healthy amounts of movement, gentle if the day calls for it.

Today it was a walk with my ol' dog. She turned 13 over the weekend, and the first half of the walk, she didn't seem to want to move her old bones. The second half, however, she was more frisky than I. But at least we got outside. She got some good sniffing in. And I came to terms with how fit I am not, and how fit I am. And hope lives.


By the way, the photo of the dog is an old one, when she was closer to her prime. It's got to be over five years ago, because it's in the old house.

  


January starts the year...

Saturday, January 03, 2009

And here I am starting it with hopes and resolution... I obviously did not do well in 2008, but as they say, one day at a time.
