Play the body in front of you

Monday, October 05, 2015      8 comments

This morning on my walk, instead of looking for the sun rise, I focused on how the sun was touching trees and rooftops as it came up. It was brief, these isolated glimmers of brightness and sparkle that had "popped" with those first rays. Bef... Read more

Hunger.... diabetes and how it is changing

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      10 comments

I would panic at first when my blood sugars got low. Then my body began to trust me. I think I had high blood sugars for so many years that at first when they got "normal" I would feel ill. After a while though I started to feel good when my ... Read more

It's day 80 in my 100 day countdown. So much has happened in 20 days. My canoe trip being top of my list. I am almost done the 31 day walking challenge. I have had some spectacular exercise days. My latest blood work came back all wonderful... Read more

Which door?

I was responding to a thread this morning. HALT (don't get too hungry, angry, lonely or tired) is a great tool for helping prevent random eating... and one member has been joking about having that tattooed on her fingers... and even tried magic... Read more

Today is day 95 in my countdown. Yesterday was a birthday swim party for my nephew. He and many of his friends have Down's Syndrome. It struck me, just as it does for many aunties watching their nephews and nieces, how grown up they are getti... Read more

Rest day

It is day 97 in my countdown (no blog yesterday) and it has been fantastic! I decided to spend most of it outdoors because it is the BEST place to ground me and help stomp out my cravings. In fact I took on a project spontaneously. I was goin... Read more

New shoes to walk through the door of clean eating!

Tuesday, September 08, 2015      7 comments

Today is day 99 in my countdown to eat clean. It is ... variable. I will get better. Yesterday really helped, having an image of my future me in Ireland and doing ladders and off Diabetic meds. I even got excited when I found a new team ... Read more

Eating clean... motivated!

I was reading a blog and reminded the writer of a challenge I gave myself a while back to count down from 100 days and how useful that was, not because I was trying to accumulate successive successful days, but because each day I was working tow... Read more

I Matter

Sunday, September 06, 2015      11 comments

One of the most important tools for me has been the "I Matter" list. I don't even remember how it came about. Being the person I am I would get busy and "forget" to do just basic things for myself. But in those days I didn't see how all the l... Read more

The Anvil Around My Neck

Thursday, September 03, 2015      7 comments

The theme for meditation this morning was "the anvil around my neck". It resonated more with me for a few days ago... but the discussion with my meditation buddy was good so I thought i would share. I get an idea.... a good idea, an inspir... Read more

As many of you know I have been meditating every morning with my neighbour since January. I also did Marianne Williamson's "Course in Weight Loss:21 Spiritual Steps to releasing weight forever". And, a long time ago I was in OA and did the 12 ... Read more

I have been struggling with being consistent at some things. Mostly I am not sure how many times I have walked or eaten clean or worked on other goals. This morning I was reading and it suggested that at the end of each week, at the start of e... Read more

Eating Less

Monday, August 24, 2015      10 comments

Well, my Wise Women Retreat went very very well. I think I have worked on so many issues that I did not feel the exhaustion that the others felt by the end. It was emotionally filling for me. A lot of belly laughs and everyone is now a friend... Read more

Wise Woman

It's been a while since I have blogged. I let SP writing and reading go while I was on holidays and busy with the B&B.... although a couple of teams I have remained active on. There was only a spattering of service while at the cottage.... but... Read more

Tuesday, August 04, 2015      13 comments

I'm starting this thread because today I started some clean eating goals. I am going to try and get to the end of the month without eating complex foods, sugars etc. It's not easy, is it? I sat talking to my meditation buddy about it. ... Read more
