What do I want?

Wednesday, November 18, 2015      12 comments

What do I want? In the shower this morning that was my question to myself, forehead against the tiles and letting the water leak where tears should fall. I'm cried out. My cousin and then my dog. These things come in threes and my daughter h... Read more

Tuesday, November 17, 2015      9 comments

Wonderful reading the other day and it has stayed with me so I thought I'd share. "Being true to who we are means carrying our spirit like a candle in the center of our darkness" "If we are to live without silencing or numbing essentia... Read more

Love myself as I would love someone else...

Thursday, October 15, 2015      12 comments

It's not easy to love myself. I tend to be critical, demanding, impatient. I know that I would not treat someone else that way. After the long Thanksgiving weekend, as expected, there were a lot of leftovers. On one hand very nice beca... Read more

I am making progress, however it is very much a fall and get up and move forward then fall again pattern for me. I wrote the following on a team thread and thought it makes a good blog that I can look back on. I was doing reading yesterda... Read more

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?

Wednesday, September 16, 2015      11 comments

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

You've come a long way Baby!

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

Thursday, September 10, 2015      8 comments

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

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!

Monday, September 07, 2015      14 comments

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
