At the Gym Today . . .
Saturday, January 12, 2019      22 comments

I did my cardio (elliptical) and my upper and lower body strength training, then engaged in a lengthy stretch routine in our "quiet" room. There was a lady there, grey-haired and fit, who was also working through her balance routine at the ... Read more
Balance

Really enjoyed all of your responses on my "bone density" blog yesterday concerning our universal desire not to fall and not to break any bones!. Clearly many of us here are concerned about balance, and I found this article about elderly Chinese... Read more

Staying Warm (and Keeping the Bones Dense!)
Wednesday, January 09, 2019      33 comments

Yesterday after my recess walk in my bright red down parka I had a quick doctor's appointment to review the results of my bone density scan. Not so good: still at risk of more fractures. And: I had to confess to her that I had STOPPED taki... Read more

Tuesday, January 08, 2019      29 comments

It was cold cold cold here yesterday -- but I still got out for a recess walk in my bright red parka. I am sure even the bears were envious!! I remembered AA MIlnes' Furry Bear poem -- a fave from my childhood -- and found it with google... Read more
OK Then: Equanimity Recovered!!
Monday, January 07, 2019      32 comments

At least for now, anyhow. I've got to expect (and I DO expect) that the renovations will feel overwhelming from time to time. But: it's "weather". And peaceful confidence is just one thought away. Plus the relative peace and tranqui... Read more

Oh my. How can people enjoy this process?? Deciding on paint colours, floor finishes, appliances . . . on and on and on. I know: shoulda been done multiple times over the 30 + years we have lived in this shabby house. But: the... Read more

Yes, I did slink out of my office early again yesterday afternoon and home to bed, to sleep off the flu. (No contact with clients, absolutely minimal contact with work colleagues -- by email, mostly, or at more than arm's length -- so I don't t... Read more
Not 100% Yet . . .

My flu bug has morphed into shivery sore throat and general all over body ache fatigue. Yeah. I hung it at work until about 1 pm yesterday and them slunk home again and crawled into bed. But: without the flu shot, pretty sure I'd be... Read more

Thursday, January 03, 2019      33 comments

That's what I was thinking this morning as I went through my brief body-weight exercise program (4 sets of 10 push ups, sit ups, hiking planks and squats) followed by my thorough stretch routine. If I never stop, I'll get stronger. Already... Read more

Wednesday, January 02, 2019      29 comments

Yes, I had a flu shot. But one of my clerks told me December 28 she'd been sick over Christmas with the flu: and I think I have a mild case myself. Went into work anyhow but after three fast trips to the ladies' . . . . came home. ... Read more
What's Even Better than Turkey Christmas Dinner?
Tuesday, January 01, 2019      27 comments

Yes, you guessed it. New Year's turkey barley mushroom soup. It's a two day project. Day one, boiling down the turkey carcass to make the turkey broth. I used celery, carrot, onion, poultry seasoning. Strained, chilled overn... Read more
Biggest Breakthrough in 2018
Monday, December 31, 2018      27 comments

In 2017, I really benefited from learning more about ACEs: Adverse Childhood Experiences. And realizing how very continuous my experience of fear and anxiety from those ACEs had continued to be. Jon Gabriel's work helped me there a great deal... Read more
