I started back on Noom about 6 weeks ago. The first time I did it, I didn't lose any weight at all --- mostly because it's hard work, and I was either too distracted or lazy or just not ready. It's so much easier and quicker on MediWeightLoss, b... Read more
Folks, I'm Feeling Good...

I got back on Noom -- which didn't really work for me before (but I'm pretty sure it's because I wasn't ready and didn't do my part). I've been on the plan for three days and I'm already feeling better. I just made the most fantastic soup with s... Read more

I had a lovely holiday in the mountains with my daughter and my beau and our three dogs combined. However, two of my uncles have died within one week, and my cousin is seriously ill. I've come to Huntsville, Alabama, my hometown of olde, to be w... Read more

Yesterday, I didn't post ... but I did my yoga and some light weight training, and then I relaxed for most of the day. I actually read several chapters from a book I am loving. I put away my computer for much of the day, made myself a fabulous t... Read more
Yoga by the Fireplace

It's one of my favorite things to do in winter: rise early enough before work to do even a brief session of yoga by the fire. My dogs usually join in the fun and cause joyful chaos. I don't mind it. In fact, when Sherlock decides he wants to sit... Read more

Last night, I had a big event at the college where I work. It was a lot to manage, and it went well but not perfectly. I was exhausted, and all the way home I thought of all the little things I didn't do right, the foibles here and there, etc. I... Read more
How Many Times Have I Started a Blog Here?
Monday, December 02, 2019      3 comments

I won't worry about how many times I've started a blog here and didn't keep it going. I'll try again because Spark People is beautiful, and I do want to be part of it. Try, try again. I've gained and lost, gained and lost, and gained. I thi... Read more

I do a little yoga and swim at least a few laps each day, and sometimes I manage to fit in many laps. I love this time of year.... Read more

My yoga practice this morning was sublime. Low to the floor, pigeon pose, dolphin pose, and more. It's quiet here, and I've had the company of my four-month old pup on the yoga mat, playing with his Chinese meditation ball in a sock. It makes a ... Read more

I will not scold myself for the few and far between yoga practices of late, but will remind myself that each time I do come out is a victory for me spiritually, physically, and emotionally. It is a jump start to motivation, it loosens the tensio... Read more

It's the first time I've done yoga in a while, and it was glorious to be out on the mat in the warm sun and gentle breeze for a detox practice. This is how a good day begins! https://youtu.be/kuSZEZ0

I've been slacking, folks. Eating too much and not exercising. Today, I talked to a friend who is also struggling, and we agreed to take the one step we knew we could do: journal. So here I am. I don't feel good with this extra weight, either ph... Read more
