Sunday Night Check-In: Eh… Not so Good Today

I’m tired, depressed and don’t feel very well today. I’ve taken care of myself though. I know that this, too, shall pass. So, I did my exercise, ate healthy, baked some bread and made some homemade soup. I took a long nap and meditated three times just because I hoped it would shift me out […]

Sunday Night Check-In: Loving and Being Loved

Today is Day 16 of no sugar. My mind is clear. I have lots of energy. I’m even starting to think about cleaning up my eating even more. More to come on that should I decide to embark on a new nutritional adventure. I’m not sure why I took to the sugar-free effort so easily […]

Sunday Night Check-In: Finding My Hygge

So, yesterday I checked in at my monthly WW meeting. I was sweating being up two pounds over my goal weight due to excessive eggnog latte consumption, but I was well within range. It was worth celebrating with an eggnog latte, but I did not imbibe. I finally got sick of sugar two days ago. […]

Sunday Night Check-In: Sick and Happy

I’ve been sick all weekend. I traveled to Tennessee to work with my team, and I caught a bug. It feels like a head cold. I know it will pass, but I hate these things. Breathing is really important to me, and when I can’t breathe, I’m tired and grumpy. I went to bed last […]

Sunday Night Check-In: Racing, Friends and Sand

I drove up to Dewitt Mi on Friday night to stay with my new friend Michelle who was going to run The Legend with me on Saturday. She lived in an adorable historical home in downtown Dewitt. We didn’t have a lot of time to visit before bed but we took a short walk downtown […]

Sunday Night Check-In: Running, Blueberries and Open Windows

When I got off work Friday it was 70 degrees. I was so damn happy that I decided to wait until the evening to run. I packed up Ashok and headed to Grand Mere to try out my new trail running map supplied by the retired cross-country coach on our backpack last weekend. It did […]

Going longer… Getting stronger….

This weekend had a little bit of everything in it. I spent Friday evening with friends at two different art exhibit openings, Saturday with my spiritual community and Sunday out in nature. I even got a chance to cook some nice meals for myself and get enough sleep. While my house is not spic ‘n […]

Sunday Night Check-In: Pseudo-Spring

A week or so ago we had an almost 60-degree day. The rains came, the snow melted, the rivers rose. Ever since then, it shocks me that its cold outside when I go out. I expect it to be warmer even though my weather app says its still in the 30s. In fact, last week, […]

Sunday Night Check-In: Coffeehouse #4

I spent yesterday working around the house. It was a disaster. A contractor has been remodeling my bathrooms and my closets, and between the snow and construction dust and boots tracking in and out, my house was disgusting. I scrubbed everything and even rearranged the furniture to make my house more livable. It felt so […]

Sunday Night Check-In: Winter Fest

  When I lived up here last time, I don’t remember doing much in the wintertime. My ex was a wuss when it came to cold weather, and he thought winter was made for waiting for spring b*tching about the weather. I didn’t know any different. As a southerner, you hunker down and drip your […]
