Sleep
Monday, March 22, 2010      4 comments

Still struggling with sleep. My body simply doesn't want to adjust to daylight savings time or something. I did manage to get almost 8 hours last night, so I know I have nothing to complain about, but the clock is all skewed - I dropped at... Read more
Learning to make room
Sunday, March 21, 2010      6 comments

My thoughts today are on the fact that I have free time today. This is a struggle for me, although I love to read, love to write, love to do many things I don't usually have time for. There's something within me that seems to believe t... Read more
Challenges for the day
Saturday, March 20, 2010      6 comments

Well, today I'm in a poetry workshop all morning. It goes until 1:00 and there are pastries served. It's my favorite pastry place. Strategy: eat something with protein before grains, have 1/2 of something, have a salad for lunch. T... Read more
Things I Don't Like So Much
Friday, March 19, 2010      3 comments

More changes: 1. Anything with too much sugar/white flour 2. Eating after 8 at night. Ever. It interferes with my sleep, which I love and need. 3. Negative nabobs of negativity. I just don't have the patience for it. 4. Almost all... Read more

Woohoo weigh-in!
Wednesday, March 17, 2010      3 comments

Okay, so one of my *things* this time is to NOT have a relationship with the scale. But I still weigh in once a week, and I'm still hopeful. Today was weigh-in and I not only am at pre-trip weight, which means a solid 10 is down since 1/1, but... Read more
Choices
Tuesday, March 16, 2010      6 comments

So yesterday was great. Then I went to a tasting/education session at a wonderful store/deli here - Zingerman's. I'm not going to go into the who/why/where of Zingerman's right now, but suffice it to say, one of its mottos is "the world of... Read more

I'm flying today! I managed to get up at 5:00 and get in 10 mins. of cardio, 10 of yoga and 4/5 of my strength training. That seems a good start after the bronchitis. I had a great breakfast of ff greek yogurt, blueberries, Irish soda bread a... Read more
Hunkering down
Sunday, March 14, 2010      1 comments

Today has been a much-needed day at home. I've had school work to do, cooking projects, house projects, taxes and of course, I've lost that hour. I did manage a 20 minutes energy-balancing yoga session, and I'm planning on starting with 5 minu... Read more
What a difference a day makes
Thursday, March 11, 2010      3 comments

My bronchitis is lifting and turning into a spring cold, instead, which I'll take any day! It's also my mother's birthday today, so there are extra eating challenges. I went with her to Bob Evans, but made a reasonable choice and ate hal... Read more
Weigh-in
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      6 comments

Well, still sick. Still not up to exercise. Made bad choices at the end of the day yesterday, although I DID get up this morning and journal it all. I did NOT put it on pause. I guess I'm going to have to pay more attention to a little p... Read more
Put it on pause
Monday, March 08, 2010      6 comments

Just before leaving work, I spoke with a colleague whose sister has just lost both arms and legs through a strep A situation. It brought back memories of my sister's (lost) battle with cancer, and I noticed that when I left the building, I was ... Read more
Still struggling
Sunday, March 07, 2010      2 comments

But only with the breathing, not the cravings. Got back on track today. Now I'm just waiting for better health to resume exercise. I'm really missing it, which is a good thing. I wish my lungs would snap back more quickly, though. What was ... Read more
Ugh

Well, I haven't blogged in a couple of days. I woke up Friday with horrid bronchitis and I've really been struggling with asthma symptoms. I saw the doctor yesterday and she prescribed various things and today I'm going to start a prednisone b... Read more
Girls Night Out
Thursday, March 04, 2010      2 comments

Tonight was a challenge. I was able to spend the evening with two good friends, and we enjoyed a drink and some great food. I planned out what I was going to have ahead of time, but I veered from it a bit. I came home and journaled my choices... Read more
