    10/29/2014 9:41:46 PM, by DUTCHIEKIWI

    That's how life goes, Up's and Downs. I totally understand that you need to hit the lows to appreciate the highs. But the lows are nearly breaking me, I have lost myself and I have lost joy. I live..I survive. I try to fight back, as thankfully there are two very good reasons for me to fight for. ... Read more

    10/29/2014 8:11:10 PM, by KIPSTER52

    "Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love.

  • Sitting most of the day...

    10/29/2014 7:39:38 PM, by LESLIELENORE

    Spent a lot of time just sitting today. Mom ended up doing two mediations instead of just one. I started... and finished... a book while I waited for her. Add in the drive time, and it was a significant portion of my day. I just barely managed to get 120 minutes of exercise in. It didn't help t... Read more

  • ANOTHER NEW DAY

    10/29/2014 5:06:42 PM, by WILDXANGELS

    Not going to eat over today, but I do want to curl up into a ball and stay in bed all day. Sometimes the emotional pain is all consuming enough that I dont feel hungry for once. I think weekly therapy would help. Been resistant until now because I just figured life was life and I should be able to s... Read more

  • Life in the way

    10/29/2014 4:54:52 PM, by OKGOATGAL

    Sometimes, life just gets in the way of life. No, I haven't lost my mind (completely). What I mean is I make these plans, set these goals, have these ideas, and BOOM! Something happens to get in the way. Like twisting my ankle back in September-the second Sunday of September. It still hurts, I still... Read more

    10/29/2014 4:38:27 PM, by DRTOVAH

    Just a short post as I'm having time consuming tech issues, more on that later. I just saw I got 1800 miles in with Fitbit and Spark. Yay me! A little quicker than I thought it would happen. I don't think I'll get more than my morning walk in. I need to ship back my work laptop. So I am st... Read more

    10/29/2014 4:01:46 PM, by SANDSGIRL26

    My mom is currently experiencing a UTI that is resisting antibiotics. I'm a strong believer in the wonders of medication that we have available in today's world, but still it has me thinking how important it is to build up our own immune system to help fight the things we are exposed to in today's ...

    This morning, I found myself curled up on the couch with my one daily cup of coffee (sigh) and an episode of my favorite cooking show playing on Netflix. Good Eats, first off, is a great show -- it's funny, educational, and you learn a ton about food. Fantastic stuff. This show was a little differen... Read more
