MidSummer '19

Move toward living the ways of the Blue Zones
Move toward Hara Hachi Bu - eat less, try for 80% full.

Spring '19
1. Be in the here and now.
2. Be gentle and loving with my tender self.
3. Be gentle and loving with others; we're all doing the best we can.
4. Make the most healthful choice I can for me in the moment.

About me (from a team questionnaire):

NAME: You can call me "Night," or you can call me "Glow," but please don't call me late for dinner! Bwaaaaa ha ha! Sigh.

AGE: I don't believe in linear aging.

STATE: Confusion. Though sometimes I'm in Cognito.


KIDS/ANIMALS: Yes, Yes they are.

HOBBIES: Rationalization

TYPE OF WORK: I'm a lumberjack. It's okay.

Cream-colored kittens and crisp berry strudels.
High C's and wide seas
And pesto with noodles
Wild women flying, moonlight on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

SPORTS: Does "keyboarding" count as exercise? Web-surfing? That should count for something. Am I right?

Member Since: 1/22/2016

Fitness Minutes: 17,168

My Goals:
Keep on being active! Shoot for gym 3x/week, walking, movement every hour
Keep choosing healthful foods. Emphasize whole, less-processed foods. Use packaged and pre-made foods sparingly.
Get to the next goal number. :)

My tracker does not reflect my end goal. I will focus on small goals and see how I feel after each one. I and my body will determine what is the best health and size for us.

Putting a kitty-paw back in the pond. Trying to encourage myself to jump back in.

I accidentally reset all of my SPARK goals! While I'm sad to lose the past year of tracking, this is a fresh start. And who doesn't need a fresh start?

My Program:
Vegan for life and for all lives.
Working toward more whole, unprocessed foods, intuitive eating, and not confusing "intuition" with "yes I do want the entire package of Oreos."

Personal Information:
Oakland roots. Living in Coast Salish lands (the Pacific Northwest).

Other Information:
Reykjavík is the capital of Iceland.

    Thank you so much for your warm and supportive comment on my blog. I do feel disturbed by the lack of kindness I see around me, in public places, too. I really enjoy when I connect with someone; a cashier, say, who is nice. We have to hang on to those moments, I guess.

    The snarky coworkers are leaving me alone. I just don't interact with them unless necessary. I am on a higher level in terms of the work I do, and probably there is resentment because of this, but it's not my problem. I am focused on my job, which I enjoy doing and am not going to let anyone push me out. I just have to adjust to being quiet, and not my normal, friendly self. We gotta do what we gotta do.

    Hope you are well and vegging out happily.

    Since you ask, I'll confess to binge-listening to the children;s series by Eoin Colfer featuring the young pre-teenager "evil genius/ criminal mastermind/ grumpy, but sweet kid", Artemis Fowl, who gets tangled up with the fairy police, dangerous trolls, hilarious dwarf kleptomaniacs, and (gulp) his parents.... the audio versions are wonderfully read with great accents that are clearly distinctive, whether the character is Irish (as are Artemis and his parents), Russian or Chicago mobsters, Japanese, or New Zealander.... none have been Texan so far so I can't vouch for his certain accuracy, but he sounds good to me... I've finished the first 3 in the series, and have the fourth ready to go (from my library)... Awfully fun!

    Nightglow, Thanks for your comments. I looked at the pescatarian site, and it appears to be leaderless. I would like it to go to for support and ideas. I am wondering about firing it up again as a leader. Do you have an idea of how much would be involved in that? It seems to me you are the leader of the vegan site.

    Hi, this is my 14th week learning how to be a vegan, I am taking a local class which has turned out to the best thing I have done for myself in years. I will try to get on here more, I'm a caregiver 24/7 so my time is not my own. Vegan and loving it. emoticon emoticon emoticon
