Continuing to learn about me...
Spring is here, they tell me, despite low temperatures. Hmmm...the question is whether I believe them. Ahhh, but the magnolia tree in our front garden is in bud, with a few flowers blooming.
SAD, sn*w fallen & coming...anxiety, anger & guilt
WARNING! THIS IS NOT A POSITIVE BLOG SO JUMP TO THE BLESSINGS IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ MY RANT. THIS IS NOT EVEN A BLOG. IT'S A RANT IN THE HOPES THAT I CAN LET GO OF THE NEGATIVE FEELINGS.
Each day I planned to blog but this morning I re... Read more
A real challenge today...
It is a sn*wy Saturday here - or as Cheryl, leader of our Movin' It team, titled today's thread - Snuggle Saturday.
Since moving to my new apartment, I have learned to love mornings. My living room window faces east, so Katie & I get to watch the sun say "good morning." It is a quiet neighborhood, and so the silence of the outdoors, the sun when she rises (e... Read more
Quite a week...a month...a year...
If you had asked, I would have thought I only missed two days of blogging, not 5 days. Time does fly, I guess. Work sometimes gets into the way of life - though I shouldn't complain since, 1. I have a job, and 2., it is not as crazy as my fall ... Read more
Any of you who have read my blogs or posts on team sites know how much I love what I do...as long as I'm not in the office. I work for a breast cancer resource foundation aboard the Hope Bus, which isn't a bus at all but an RV decked out in pink... Read more
Gratitude...and taking things for granted...
Each morning I try to start my day with moments of gratitude as Katie and I sit watching the sun makes its entrance, even if most days it's behind sn*w filled clouds. So it was a challenge yesterday morning.
My first challenge was having no... Read more
We are at the starting line...
I am so excited to start the 2015 Winter 5% Challenge. It starts tomorrow and I am looking forward to taking this trip with our Casual Travellers team. It was last year's Winter Challenge when I began a successful journey to a healthy life Wish ... Read more
Work, winter weather & worry.
These are my w's and they are linked...one leads to the other. I have to go to WORK. The WINTER precipitation, which seems to be happening every day, WORRIES me. WEATHER is probably the most anxiety producing ... Read more
Back to work...
It has been nice being at home for almost 2 weeks and though I had vertigo, it made a change to be at home the prior week to those two. Today I return to the office. I much prefer being in the community but being out is anxiety raising for me in... Read more
As I sat contemplating what to write today (besides listing my blessings), I realized that over the last month I have had no motivation to do much. Thinking about why that must be and several thoughts occurred to me.
1. My body was catchi... Read more
*Sparking* - how do I make it fit into my schedule?
Each year I stop *sparking* when my work schedule becomes crazy with 7 day work weeks & long hours because of breast cancer awareness month, and its activities that spill into September & November. Then we are into the holiday season in December... Read more
Motivation comes from where?
As part of the preparation for the 2015 Winter 5% Challenge, we are asked to ponder what our motivation is and how we maintain it to complete the challenge. Here goes.
In the past I have also said it has nothing to do with my physical appea... Read more
Wow! I haven't blogged since June 1st, 2014. I seriously had no clue it had been quite that long. So much has happened since then so this will be a quick review of 2014.
My Word of the Year for 2014 was "DO" and I did. Through my efforts i... Read more
Never too old to learn...
Yesterday was the last day of the 5% Spring Challenge. I managed to eliminate a few lbs but nowhere close to my goal of 12 lbs. I'm keeping that goal for the 5% Summer Challenge. Though it may not have been a roaring success, at least as I hoped... Read more
