He died...

Monday, June 10, 2013

He died this afternoon. You didn't know him...not many did.

His wife died last August of he died of cancer too. I befriended him, and hope I was able to enhance his life a little. He loved my cabbage rolls. He loved to come to our house for supper. He loved to take me to Swiss Chalet to get out of his MT house.

That damn cancer makes us happy that good people are dead b/c they aren't SUFFERING any more. As of this afternoon, he's not suffering anymore, but I am.

    I am so sorry for your loss. It is good he isn't suffering any longer, though. In time, your good memories will dull the terrible pain of these early days without your friend.

It seems that everywhere I look lately, someone is encouraging me to "sign up for a challenge"! Well my friends I have a challenge to keep up my house, keep up my cottage, keep up my gardens both places and keep up with my family. I can tell you, THESE are challenges enough!

    You're already following the plan you made, and you're happy with it, so there's no need to add another stress point. Good decision for you!

Changing things up...

Monday, June 03, 2013

While I like to work hard at things, I think it might be time to take my life a little easier...laugh more...take more time for people, rather than points.

Today on SparkCoach they talk about building muscle and reducing stress. I always find it odd that exactly what I need seems to land in my lap when I need it.

So, today I left the 10 lbs and Under team. While I liked posting daily there, just the name says I need to work harder...I think it's time for me to enjoy where I have landed and will now post daily on the Maintenance's a logical, stress-relieving progression.

    My mom & dad went through that. It's hard to watch. My visit from my cardiologist was my catalyst that launched me into making healthier choices. I have no choice regarding the genetics. However, I do have a choice in making healthy food, balance, & exercise decisions.
