My karate instructor told me that I had done the first Katz (form) correctly. That's not something a rhythmically-challenged klutz expects to hear. Then again I have more patience now than I had as a young woman.... Read more

Small Town Woes

Tuesday, March 08, 2016      2 comments

Living in a small town it is hard to find a place to work out. Most of the time they are nonexistent, or are too far away, or you only hear about them after they close down and relocate to a bigger town an hour away. This fall a gym opened in ... Read more

My husband pulled me aside and whispered urgently, "I have to ask. Are you pregnant?" As an almost-50 mother of three this was not a question I often heard. "Uhhhhh -- no. I've lost seven pounds since Christmas, so, no." "Oh," he sa... Read more

I'm now doing 20 minutes of warmups and 24 minutes of yoga without strain on my torso. Yay! I would be ready to start adding in cardio and strength training, but my wrist and my knee are hurting so I'm going to give them time to catch up befor... Read more

I went over my last three years worth of Wii Fit records and noticed a pattern. I tend to start an exercise regime in midwinter and midsummer only to have it fade away in the spring and fall. I'm not sure what's going on there, other than thos... Read more

Yesterday was the first day since before Halloween that I have not taken any flu medicine. Yay! I can't say that about today. I had to go back to taking aspirin to get my throat to unswell enough not to set off a coughing spasm. But it's a st... Read more

Relapse #3

Thursday, December 17, 2015      4 comments

This is my third relapse since I caught the flu at Halloween. I am so sick of being sick! I am continuing to do a tiny amount of exercise. Now I have to go see if there's anything in the homemade recipes section that remotely corresponds with ... Read more

Yay! I can breathe through my nose again. Considering that last week I was coughing so hard I threw up, this is an improvement. If you haven't had this year's flu, don't.... Read more

Okay, I made it out to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon and my birth mother for the first time, then I came back home and collapsed. I was physically and emotionally exhausted, and as a result I've been battling a series of colds and other illne... Read more

I'm back. I'm through the nervous breakdown that led me to deal with my past as an abused adoptee. I'm though searching. I've found my biological families, to their mutual surprise. It's awkward, but nobody has been outright horrible and... Read more

Adoption Trauma

Monday, February 17, 2014      1 comments

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been having a nervous breakdown. The increased health caused by all my exercising set off my PTSD, which served up a dish of repressed childhood traumas. I found a good therapist (those are remarkably h... Read more

"Hey, you've got a bone back here," my husband said, poking at my back. "Ye-ah." "It was more padded until recently." "I'm glad you said that. You know that 10 pounds I lost so quickly? I've gained all of that back, and another ... Read more

Had a traumatic cognitive breakthrough-type thing last month. Useful in the long run, stressful in the short. Completely physically and emotionally exhausted right now. Trying to write about it. That'll be a long post. Have a series of shor... Read more
