I've been gone a while. I felt pulled to take a step back for a while and I listened to that pull. (not sure why, not sure where it came from, but there it is.) I’m even more unsure of why yesterday out of the blue, clear sky I knew it was time... Read more

I have taken a four-day weekend for myself and am so happy I did! I didn't realize how stressing the last week was until I got in my car to go home Thursday night. Yesterday I slept in a little and relaxed before heading out to do grocery shoppi... Read more

Spent this lovely Sunday partially switched off. What seems like a long time ago, I discovered "Switched off Sundays" from Leonie Dawson. No television, no computer...a lovely way to spend the day. I used to do this, again, what seems like eons ... Read more

I've not felt this good in a while! Not questioning the why of it, just embracing and running with it. It's been a rough couple of weeks, work has been crazy and my depression has been flirting with me again. Sleep has been hit and miss.... Read more

On June 9th, I went back to WW after a long absence, due to several reasons mostly having to do with my depression. Now that I'm doing better it is beyond time to get myself back on track. I walked into my workshop and quietly slipped into ... Read more

It’s been a rough six months health wise and as a result motivational wise. I’ve gained 10 pounds since I moved in. I was excited the first of the year, did the usual planning and started out walking and planning my meals but it all quickly pete... Read more
