Yesterday was a bad day. It started off OK but I lost it in the evening. Just hated existence for no reason and started dwelling on random injustices from my long ago past. Then I ate and drank 1,000 calories too much. I have noticed that I have... Read more

Thursday, April 09, 2009      3 comments

My body said it would much prefer do Tai Chi, Yoga, and walking today rather than Aerobics and Strength Training. Deep in the recesses of my brain arose an urge to LISTEN to my body. The period of guilt and self-condemnation preceding this urge ... Read more

I did a two mile walk today at an easy pace. It felt SO good to move after being sick for days. And it felt good to take care of my body and to take a gentle walk rather than force myself to go to the gym and sweat hard. I can do that tomorrow ... Read more
