The last two days I had reasons to be angry. So I am not eating away the feelings but feeling the feelings and letting ago. Just because the world is full of insensitive, opportunistic, careless people, don't mean I get fat because of them. ... Read more

On my usual route I got to see the baby goats once again. They just bring a smile to faces. All they have to do is just be who God created. They ... Read more
Know Thyself--and Avoid a Guilt Trip
Saturday, April 02, 2016      3 comments

I really appreciated the support from White Cat and SeniorLeslie. It seems that each time I return from a long road trip, the first two days back are productive and then I hit a day where I completely zone. Television, computer games, and tota... Read more

Finished my two-week road trip. So good to be back and ready to continue walking. I am so grateful that I had no weight gain. It took me until late tonight to commit to begin keeping a food journal and am glad that I am recommitted.... Read more

Monday, March 14, 2016      1 comments

Leaving one time zone losing one hour and then daylight savings time the same day equals a two-hour loss. Did a lot today but feeling it by the evening. Walking was grocery shopping and a way to get healthy food for the journey. The support f... Read more

Today was a reminder about having to maintain priorities. My work schedule is increasing for the next several weeks. A lot of traveling, a lot of meetings, probably some stress, and a lot of interaction. As I write in my blog the word "respon... Read more
Laundry Day
Monday, March 07, 2016      4 comments

I have been procrastinating doing the laundry for a few days. The washer/dryer is about 1/3 mile from my house. It is a good way to get in the steps but does take up most of my day. This blog is to help me view laundry in a new way. No... Read more
Nordic walking stick versus ski poles
Sunday, March 06, 2016      3 comments

I keep toying with the idea to get walking sticks and then I looked at the price and then I looked at my track record. It seems like the more "fancy" stuff I get, the less likely I will be to use them. So someone left ski poles at the house. ... Read more
Walking with a Friend
Saturday, March 05, 2016      6 comments

Today, we enjoyed a more casual walk--steady and easy. The road we walk has a lot of hills, country scenery (cows and vultures) and friendly neighbors. When we first attempted to walk the road, we could maybe do a mile. Now we are walking... Read more

Friday, March 04, 2016      4 comments

Last night I attended the National Weather Service Severe Storm Spotter class. I had a really good time and the information helped to put a fear in perspective. I am scared of wind storms and tornadoes. Though, I love going outside (in my yar... Read more
Beginning, Middle and End
Wednesday, March 02, 2016      4 comments

Everything has a beginning, middle and an end. Someone pointed this fact out (probably some famous author) and those words bring such comfort. In six months, I will be taking a sabbatical. After 24 years of administration and living out of my... Read more
Hard at work
Tuesday, March 01, 2016      4 comments

Today was filled with intense meetings and two and a half hours of drive time. My stress buster and exercise was a half hour in the pool. The best gift I could give myself today! Tonight I am really tired and will go to bed early by my standa... Read more
The mysteries of the body
Monday, February 29, 2016      3 comments

My body is teaching me a lot as I get in better shape and healthier. Once I began losing, my blood pressure has corresponded beautifully and more often it shows an optimal reading. Sleep is no longer being interrupted by acid reflux. The scal... Read more
Sunday: A day to waste time with God
Sunday, February 28, 2016      8 comments

The wind gusts are 30 to 40 miles an hour. A perfect day to go deep into the woods and find a place to rest with God. The wind is high and its force rustled the leaves of last summer allowing me to know ahead of time that the next gust was on ... Read more

I've always loved Fridays. Maybe because it is the end of the work week, most people seem to be less burdened by end of the work week, and the weekend is usually mine. Today was cooler than I like and I got out and walked my three miles. ... Read more
