No, my booty is up here...

Saturday, November 29, 2014

You know that joke about "my eyes are up here, buddy"?

Yeah well, I want to tell these pockets that my booty is up higher, stop hanging out on my leg.



After sitting in them for 10 minutes and kinda giving myself a wedgie, I managed to at least get the pockets onto my booty. I tried different sizes and styles, btw, but I always have these issues. Why do they even put pockets on these pants? (This is at a store MADE for plus sizes.) These pictures illustrate the reason I like dresses more than pants.



If you needed more proof, here are the pants I walked in wearing... That white stuff at the top are my panties- where my PANTS should be.

    It's so hard to find a comfortable fitting pants. The last thing I want is to bring more attention to my back side.

    I thought I was the only one that was obsessive about where back pockets are! I can't stand it when they're half on your leg. Not cool, pants pockets... not cool.

Lack of Blog Access

Saturday, November 29, 2014

I finally downloaded the Spark app again and kind of have access to blogs from my phone (progress!) When Spark converted to make a "mobile" version of their pages, they eliminated access via phone to many parts of the website. There is no "switch" to turn off a mobile version of the website. It's been disheartening as this is my sole access to the web. Update: I found one! Yay!


However, I don't see a photo upload. (sadness!) but I'll use the full site access to do that.

I'm hoping that as Spark continues to improve access to their site via my phone I can participate more.

    I've been having problems accessing SP, since they launched their mobile app too. Who knew it would make it so hard to Spark. I emailed SP for help, since other sites like Amazon that force me to the mobile version, have an option to click, so I can go to the full site. SP said, it wasn't their problem. I needed to change my browser settings on my phone. emoticon
Hope things get easier for you.

Sit/ Stand Test

Sunday, September 21, 2014

www.mnn.com/health/fitness-well-bein
g/stories/this-simple-sitting-test-cou
ld-predict-how-long-you-will-live


While I don't agree or appreciate with articles that declare the same results for everyone, like the "within 6 years" likelihood of mortality, I do like that there is a good demonstration of something you can use as a non-scale benchmark of fitness and progress.

This sit/stand test makes sense.

Update: I cannot do this yet. It's a goal of mine and a milestone I have to look forward to achieving. If you are already disabled or have something preventing you from doing it, this blog post is not a criticism of you. And if it wasn't clear before, the whole "using this as a gauge of longevity" is nonsense to me. Plus the study/ article aims that kind of gauge at people older than 60, where instances of fatal falls are prevalent. Please keep this in mind.

    One of the turning points that made me start losing weight came in 2005. My cardiologist told me he did not have to concern himself with obesity in his patients over 60-ish years old. They all died before that age. I was morbidly obese, disabled and barely able to walk or breath at that point.

If his obese patients did not lose weight before late middle age - they would be dead before old age. My Doctor literally does not have any elderly obese patients. It's easy to say who cares when you are young, but now in my mid-fifties, I prefer to become a spry 80 year old than a dead one.

    One size, does not fit all. Nor does one test measure everyone's ability the same. Just use the info, but don't take it to heart. Heck according to some crazy 'wellness' test I did a while back...I might already be dead!

Benchmark 59:30 5k - Aloha

Sunday, September 07, 2014





Me (orange) with Newsgirl2177.
(not pictured- BEFIT_WITHGUSTO or Newsgirl's awesome husband who took our picture. )

I have been inactive and I felt it. I'm lifting 45 pounds from my lightest, and I felt them. My feet burned. And through small adjustments, neglectful via inadequate sleep, nutrition, refueling, hydration, training....I triggered a bit of a migraine.

But the world goes on. I typically like to document my triumphs over my struggles. But I need to note this. All of it.

This is my new benchmark. 59:30. The course was fairly flat with some grass portions. That might be the longest it's taken me to do a 5k, or it might be amazing since I haven't trained. All I know is that the only way forward is to keep moving. And looking back too far, comparing myself negatively is dragging me down.

This is a new beginning, trying new things, and growing wiser along the way.

    YOU DID IT! I think you are so awesome that you did the 5K.

I am presently training to run 5K as I have always wanted to be able to run.
I never thought I could and I just got fed up with doubting myself so I joined the Rookie to running a 5k Team two weeks ago. Tomorrow I run the last day of week 2 then on to week 3.

To know you have done the 5K inspires me to keep pushing and I want to wish you all the best in reaching your goals. I just watched your video and am so proud of your accomplishments .
Keep up the great work and don't let set backs keep you from reaching forward.
You can do this!

We can do this!.

Hugs and friendship

Vulnerability

Sunday, August 31, 2014

https://www.ted.com/talks/brene_brow
n_on_vulnerability


A common theme with people is to like things that reinforces the beliefs they already hold. This TED talk linked above is exactly like that. It touches on the themes of some of my previous blogs when I was struggling to figure out self-love, the ones where I was trying to explain why when I let go of the need to look perfect in every picture I started to relax and think about those I love or the experience I was having and people noticed and complimented my pictures more, that kindness to yourself invariably results on being more kind and patient and less judgmental to others...

I like reminders, even if it's things we already know.
