Thinking differently
Saturday, December 28, 2013      3 comments

It's been way too long since I put out an effort to get into better shape, and I'm ready to try again. I hope to have weight-loss surgery in the year to come, but until then I need to start trying harder. I got a live close enough to work to wal... Read more
Getting on with it
Monday, June 18, 2012      6 comments

I'd been thinking about this as 'starting over' and feeling failure about having gained nearly 30 pounds in the last six or so months. I mean, how often will I have to say "I'm starting over" and rev up to it again? But really, I'm recognizing t... Read more
I can do this one little thing

So here it is Advent III almost, and I'm pretty much where I was at Thanksgiving in terms of weight, blood glucose and goals. NOT good. I'm still not tracking food, but I am checking my BG more often and it's staying pretty stable, thank goodnes... Read more

Fall-ing?
Friday, October 07, 2011      5 comments

So everyone I know is likely sick of me whining about my fear that winter's onset here in Minnesota will make it hard for me to get my daily walking in, but last night as I was reveling the absolute glory of all the beauty that is fall in the Mi... Read more
A sense of wellbeing.
Wednesday, July 06, 2011      4 comments

Today after my noontime walk (in 84 degrees no less!) I felt great. My head feels lighter, my mind feels more alert, my posture is straighter than before lunch, my energy is up, I feel proud of myself, and instead of being cranky about the sweat... Read more
Sports Bras and other ugly exercise truths.
Monday, June 27, 2011      8 comments

I went to three major retail sporting goods stores, not one carried a sports bra larger than a women's size XL. As I left I asked the salesman or manager at each of them if they carried men's shirts in XXL or 3X, and all of them said "Yes." So w... Read more
Making it work
Monday, June 20, 2011      3 comments

In late April I learned that my blood glucose was in diabetic range, and my doc termed it pre-diabetes, saying however that we would work to pre-vent full onset rather than assume ti was inevitable. I liked that, and took it as my focus and chal... Read more
Getting a grip

So - knee surgery left me with blood clots - threw me off SG and now I take blood thinners most of the supplements and thermoboosts are off limits for me for another five months. I rolled around in the self pity a while, gained back five pounds ... Read more
One foot in front of the other....
Thursday, November 18, 2010      1 comments

So I'm up and moving post-knee-surgery, and back at work a few hours a day. I'm reminded once again that this body turns 50 this year, and heals differently than it did at 25! It feels SO good to be doing and moving, but it is also difficult and... Read more
Hurry up and wait? No way.
Sunday, November 14, 2010      4 comments

I keep feeling stuck because of my knee surgery, and sounding quite frankly whiny about it, so I figure it's as well to write it out. Now that I am, I realize that my best way forward is to focus on how I CAN move forward, and not continuing to ... Read more
