Oof. What a string of messy Lifeness in my world lately, and it keeps coming. None of it is directly of me, but very much affects those nearest and dearest to me. What challenging lessons to stay compassionately (and therefore emotionally vul... Read more

What a week plus. Sick kid, sick dog, relatives in and out of hospitals, daughter's birthday scramble, strange work patterns. My focus wobbled but I didn't fall completely off track. My exercise slacked off some, but not completely. I di... Read more

This Mark's Daily Apple post was just the thing I needed to read to keep me motivated about defining and protecting time for my 'build-a-day' idea. He articulates well what my sense was about building routine. It's always fun to find unexpecte... Read more

Day 33: Informative Flounder
Thursday, February 05, 2015      3 comments

If Tuesday was a face plant, yesterday was a floor flounder. But I'm not beating myself up about it. It ended up being very informative and motivating. Cravings I held at bay all day Tuesday were stronger when I woke up so I made a delibe... Read more

Yesterday was a total food face plant. I did get in meditation (1/3) and strength (arms, 1/3). Steps were reduced at about 7.5k. I am going to circle back later this morning and log all of the bad and ugly to see exactly what I did so I ca... Read more

Day 26: A Slow, Nerdy Day
Thursday, January 29, 2015      5 comments

I crashed early last night and am still with very low energy today; it could be from a number of reasons that I see no value in wondering out, so am just going with it. Low appetite came along too, so less calories are pacing with the less acti... Read more
