Moo, Baaa, Maaaa, Wha-huh?
Out hiking with a group today, I stopped to tie my shoe and one of the male hikers went around me, continuing on the trail, but also making sure to say this to me:
"Bahhaahaaaaa" [use whatever inflections you like. it was meant as pleasant... Read more
Assessing January Goals: II: Weekly
My weekly goals were harder to hit than my monthly ones--in some ways. Actually, I made it to the Y to exercise FOUR times a week two of the weeks, and at least two when I still had shingles....which...may not have been wise.
And, *with* t... Read more
Assessing January Goals: I: Monthly
I made a number of short-term goals for the month of January, both physical and all-over-wellness, and weekly as well as monthly.
As for the one-time goals for the month, even though the month was overshadowed by (now), TWO bouts of shingle... Read more
Vision and Strategy, Part 3
So....the grief-work is laid out, the vision is there to see, and so logically, to reach.
Steps. Part of the grief is that there may be more steps than I WANT to take. However, when I stop being stuck in the frustration, shame and pain, ... Read more
Vision and Strategy, Part 2
I wrote about working through the emotional part of new vision in order to create a strategy for health (including weight loss).
I'm going to work at an attempt again, let's say on the 1-100 scale, of creating *steps* throughout short-term ... Read more
Vision and Strategy, Part 1
It's not trite; it's about learning. So *far* I have failed at finding balance, but this means that I have found ways that *don't* work. Yes, it's the time of year -- those few days --- for resolutions, but I'm about to get resolute about goal... Read more
Confused But Okay With It
I don't know if I did something right, and I don't know what I've been doing wrong (if I have? maybe just a big adjustment to a new level of exercise???).
Anyhow, *yesterday*, I weight 246 ...upsetting.
This morning, I weighed 243.

Weights and Measures
I really wish I did measurements before I focused only on what the scale says.
According to the scale, I've gained a pound.
According to my new life-pattern, I've added in 30-60 minutes a day of regular exercise that wasn't there befor... Read more
Call it a Day, Call it a GOOD Day.
Whoa, SPARKPOINTS. Yeah, you've got my number.
In fact, three more and I'm going to call it a night.
I had a healthy day (I have a LOT of illnesses), and mostly pain-free.
I was able to be outside and play with my goats and get... Read more
In Sickness and Health
Another day, another night with my mind racing....
I'm not bipolar, but because I have illnesses that knock me down and out for days at a time (looks like depression), I get up with way too much gustso as soon as I'm able (manic-looking) an... Read more
Choosing Health, Not Should'ing
I should balance my checkbook and pay bills.
I should plant my daffodil bulbs--wait, that's something I love and now with that word "should" I feel obligated and a little grouchy that it got put on a list of 'shoulds'.
I saw a sign a l... Read more
Daily Health Bog, Day 44 : Journaling Context
Hm. 247.2 lbs. Not a reason to panic: I just want to look at the context of what's been going on.
Like when we took the trip to Ithaca, I'm not taking rest-days between exercise workouts. I did a hard workout swimming on Wednesday eveni... Read more
Daily Health Bog, Day 43 : Water Therapy / Nature Therapy
Whew! I'm getting too tired and loopy to write the post, but I want to keep tracking this journey.
It ...seems.... that the 246 lbs on the scale might be believable. It's consistent. It's funny--I've been fighting for weight loss since... Read more
Daily Health Bog, Day 42 : Working *Out* the Stress
WOWZERS, I'm feeling STRESS. Money stress (lack thereof~!) and stress from interacting with the X, who now I have to take to court to make him pay his share of college and other costs for the kids......needing to file an appeal for disability..... Read more
Health Stats Blog, Day....41: Looking to focus
I'm finally getting the hang of the system:
(do other things to wake up while the hour passes),
