Planting for the Future
Sunday, February 18, 2018      5 comments

Yesterday, BF and I visited a locally owned greenhouse/garden store. We did not buy a greenhouse, but we talked with the owner and got some good education about the local weather, greenhouses and gardening. We ended up buying starts for 3 of m... Read more
Fighting the Feeling that I Failed
Sunday, January 28, 2018      4 comments

I was so excited to have lost 7.5 pounds after surgery that I was sure I would continue. I aimed for 2 pounds this week, which, given the current situation, may not have been realistic, but I thought it was OK all week. I ate pretty carefu... Read more
100% Commitment - Waylaid by Girl Scout Cookies
Tuesday, January 23, 2018      4 comments

I started yesterday by driving my partner to an early morning appointment. I was surprised how sore that made me! I had my stepdad take me to my doctor appointment. The doctor gave me a limited release to return to work. I can work from home,... Read more
I Need to Act on my 100% Commitment
Monday, January 22, 2018      3 comments

Today, I will attempt to drive for the first time since surgery. One of the stops is the follow-up appointment with my doctor where he should sign the release so I can get back to work. Mixed feelings about that. I am still uncomfortable, th... Read more
This is Not a Diet! This is Not a Drill! I OWN This Journey!
Saturday, January 20, 2018      6 comments

A few days into my post-surgery changes. I am still learning what foods are now off limits. Yesterday, I ate wholly within the safe list. Turned down the fruit turnover and the other goodies that my partner brought home. It makes it easier n... Read more
Post-Surgery Update
Friday, January 19, 2018      7 comments

Feel free to skip this one. Some observations may not be for all audience members. Last week, I had gall bladder removal surgery. It came at just the right time. By the time the date came, I was so uncomfortable, in so much pain, I had sort ... Read more
Yesterday was a Rest Day; Today was Essentially the Same
Thursday, January 04, 2018      4 comments

As my surgery date draws near, I am increasingly feeling crappy. I may have overdone it on the row machine the other day. I was too sore yesterday and reluctantly took a rest day. It felt weird to drive past the gym without going in. Thinkin... Read more
I am Worth It! (Part 2)
Monday, January 01, 2018      4 comments

This morning, I realized something. Heretofore, knowing I would be going to the gym for just a few minutes, I would have talked myself out of spending the time and gas. But, as BF said when I shared this changed thought with him, "It is worth ... Read more
Day 3 at the Gym
Sunday, December 31, 2017      5 comments

I am still not doing a full workout. I am not kidding anyone, least of all myself. But, this was my 3rd straight day to walk through the doors and do something. I thought I would try the recumbent bike, but headed back to the elliptical f... Read more
I am Worth It!
Saturday, December 30, 2017      10 comments

A few days ago, a post card came in the mail. It was from Planet Fitness advertising a $10/month deal if I signed up before the end of the year. I drive by several of them during my 40 mile commute, but did not otherwise know anything about th... Read more

I vacillate between furious anger and fear about current politics and my fears about my own future. I vacillate between loving my job and hating my commute. I vacillate, and this is really bad, between thinking about making positive healthy ch... Read more

Off the Market!
Sunday, June 11, 2017      8 comments

In the midst of several months of crazy activity, very little of it physical, here I am. Most of last week was spent in North Carolina. I flew in Sunday and spent most of Monday driving around with my realtor looking at houses on my list. I s... Read more
Mother's Day Thoughts
Saturday, May 13, 2017      8 comments

I always approach Mother's Day with a mix of feelings. My mother is, as far as I know, still alive. She has chosen not to have me in her life for most of the time I have been alive. I wish things were different. I have been blessed with teac... Read more
