Changing the body changes the mind.
Friday, June 08, 2012      2 comments

This has been a boom of a week. I have been attending a chiropractor for the past year and a quarter, and at the beginning of the year we moved beyond healing and into health. I was able to discuss with my chiropractor the goals I have for my li... Read more
Total Exhaustion
Wednesday, May 23, 2012      3 comments

Last night, I came home from the normal run of kids appointments, dropping people off and speaking over the smartphone to my eldest son at college while sitting in waiting rooms. It was a full day, but I had intended to make it even more so. I ... Read more
Diet vs Lifestyle
Monday, May 21, 2012      3 comments

I wrote this entry as a part of a Paleo Diet thread I share on. As I was writing, I realised that this is the sort of thing a lot of us think about. What is the difference between diet and lifestyle, and is diet and lifestyle just another fancy ... Read more

Friday morning Slashdot ran an article on a new body weight simulator created by a mathematician who has put his mind to weightloss as a problem. It helps you to create a program of weightloss that can be tracked over a long time. http://b... Read more
My Paleo Challenge
Friday, May 18, 2012      1 comments

I started the Paleo 30 day Challenge last Monday. Today I was up in the middle of winter, fingers tingling from the cold because I forgot to turn the heater on, but it wasn't the cold that woke me at 4.30 am. I was awoken by life! I was excited,... Read more
Wordsworth and Walking
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      5 comments

Wordsworth spent a good deal of his life walking. I read somewhere that he tended to walk about eight miles a day, a good fourteen kilometres. He did it for a number of reasons, including as a part of his work practice for writing. He wrote abou... Read more
Organising a recovery--Post to Organized Life Team Forum

I had minor surgery on my foot last November, and it kept off my feet and out of the loop for quite a while. The house was left to my sons to manage while I couldn't move, and while I was away. I came home, finally, about two and a half weeks ag... Read more
Standing in the Middle of the Road

Sorry I have been away for so long. It has been a difficult time, and my entire year feels like it has been delayed by three months. I had such a fantastic beginning, but the loss of BI's mum was really difficult, and ... and... and... In the en... Read more
Back at It
Sunday, February 26, 2012      0 comments

I am looking out over the Murray River. There are sea-gulls so far from the sea that it is hard to wonder how they got here. There are stories about ancient spirits who chased creatures along the river and up billabongs to make their way to this... Read more
Stepping back after backing out
Thursday, February 23, 2012      1 comments

I've not followed anything other than my conscience in the last few weeks. My beautiful Italian lost his mother, and I lost her too. I know there is a lot to reflect upon here, but I'll do that when I get back to a more normal routine in a coupl... Read more
The Exercise Monkey is on my Back
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      1 comments

I personally would really love to have support with exercise, as it seems to be the thing I avoid the most. I get into work, or running around with kids, and I become sedentary without even noticing it. I have changed my eating and thinking habi... Read more

Today I spent all day completely involved in my work. It was wonderful. I have ended the day on a high. I went for a short walk, but I didn't do any strength exercise. But on the good side of things, I didn't overeat either. ... Read more
The Things We Do To Ourselves
Saturday, January 28, 2012      1 comments

Ok, this whole listen to your body thing makes life just a little more awkward. I am listening, and the things my body says it didn't like makes me just a little sad. If I had known it didn't like what I was doing to it, may be I wouldn't have d... Read more
Eat Well
Friday, January 27, 2012      0 comments

During the Eat Well, Think Well, Move Well course, I discovered the value of a paleo diet. Since coming home, I have begun to merge the paleo diet with the ayurvedic eating practices that I learned in the past.... Read more
Visiting my Mother
Wednesday, January 25, 2012      2 comments

I don't know if any of you are like this, but I can't seem to walk through my mother's door without consuming a bag of biscuits. I don't think it is comfort food, per se. It is more like survival rations. Mum smokes like a chimney and drinks lik... Read more
