A Summer Blog, part nine
Monday, July 02, 2018      1 comments

This morning I focused on the spirituality of the valley. This is a valley of diverse peoples—the original Native people, the Spanish Conquistadors and the latecomers ranging from traders from Lebanon, frontiersmen and Hippies. Many broken peopl... Read more

I can’t call this time on the deck meditation. Meditation is more of a clearing your mind of all thoughts. What I do is order my thoughts—it calms my mind and allows me to think about one thing instead of jumping from one thought to another. Thi... Read more

I believe the birds slept in today—after all it is Saturday. Not much chatter from the ones that were out and about. Did hear the scolding of a chickadee at the edge of sound, though I’m not sure if it was a chickadee or a yellow breasted chat. ... Read more

It was cloudy when I got up a bit late today! Would love to have some rain so the forest could re-open and the risk of fire would go down. The clouds both kept the heat in and kept some out as the day progressed, but I am thankful for AC. No sun... Read more

It is going to be hot today. I got a bit of a late start this morning and by 7:30 it was almost too warm to enjoy the sun. I am enjoying these sessions communing with nature each morning. I am sleeping better and seem more relaxed. I look forwar... Read more

An appointment this morning—so out to the deck an hour early. It’s chilly with the sun just hitting the top of the cliff to the West. The birds are still quiet—just a nuthatch cleaning the cottonwood and a hummer that comes within 4 inches of hi... Read more

Out to the deck a bit earlier this morning and it is cold without the sun on my back. But as always, the sun did rise and I warmed up quickly. It helped to have a lap full of dogs. I have four. My eldest came up onto my lap after the others were... Read more

I’ve never been an activist, but I got up this morning thinking about the rollback of regulations for clean air and water and how far we had come. After a shower, starting a load of laundry and making a mug of coffee, I made my way to the deck. ... Read more

After the 2016 election, I subscribed to all kinds of political newspapers and briefs. I would get up at 5-5:30 every morning and spend a couple of hours reading. At the beginning of this year (2018), I dropped several subscriptions and was gett... Read more
"Functional' Exercise
Tuesday, May 01, 2018      2 comments

As an old woman, I shoot more for movement than actual 'real' exercise. Instead of weight work at the gym, I work in the garden, raking, hauling, shoveling and planting. My hardest thing is stopping in a timely manner. I always want to finish on... Read more

I have been maintaining for a couple of years now. It seems second nature to eat the way I have chosen. Yesterday my trainer (dog trainer) was passing chocolate bark to everyone. She said "See the package says it is all natural and gluten f... Read more
A Break from What and Why
Monday, April 17, 2017      3 comments

Someone was wondering in a post today--should they take a break occasionally from their "diet". It got me to thinking about "diets" and ways of eating. Why would you take a break? If your only purpose is to lose some weight, I suppose taking a b... Read more
Two year anniversary

Two years ago yesterday I was diagnosed as prediabetic after having an episode that hospitalized me. It was probably a TIA, but the only thing the tests--and there were MANY tests--showed was the prediabetes. I weighed about 140 pounds which was... Read more

One of my teams began a thread on how to plan for the holidays my input was about the mindset and how that was part of the planning. The most important thing for me is my headset. WHY am I eating this way and WHY is it important for me to c... Read more

I read an article on SP by Coach Dean that really made me stop and think about where I was going and what my goals are. The article was about motivation and my take away was: there is no real motivation. It is all about our perception of ourselv... Read more
