Indulgence and Well Being
Thursday, June 20, 2019      21 comments

Yup, I'm seeing a convergence here. A-ha!! Indulgence has made me squirm BECAUSE (in large part) I've thought I'm not entitled to indulge (more properly, self care) UNLESS it's as a reward for ongoing effortful accomplishment . . . which... Read more

Indulgent
Tuesday, June 18, 2019      26 comments

"Indulgent" is a word that makes me squirm a little. I've just never wanted to be the "self-indulgent" person. I don't do massages. Somebody else working out my kinks? Up to me to stretch, right?? I can do it myself!! I don't ... Read more

But Let's Get Real Here -- What About IE and Weight Maintenance?
Sunday, June 16, 2019      25 comments

Yeah, wish I were more relaxed about weight maintenance. Wish I did not continue, at least in a corner of my mind, to measure the "success" of the Intuitive Eating experiment in the context of whether I gain or lose weight -- whether I ... Read more
Intuitive Eating and Pleasure
Saturday, June 15, 2019      26 comments

OK, this is emerging as a key insight for me. I underline, for ME. May not make a whole lotta sense to anyone else. May be a huge DUH for lots and lots of people. But: here it is. Intuitive eating is based upon the principle that I... Read more
Yes, I do KNOW when I'm just about full!!

Last night after work I had some cashews and then heated up a bowlful of my supper soup (chicken minestrone) with a few organic vegan whole grain crackers. A piece of 2 year old cheddar cheese. And: about 2/3 of the way through the bowl, w... Read more
Golf!
Thursday, June 13, 2019      26 comments

Finally got out to the golf course after work last evening. It was beautiful out there -- lovely weather, lots of Canada geese with fluffy goslings and green green grass. And I had a few decent shots!! The rules have changed such t... Read more
Loving the Gentle Movement!

Yesterday's recess walk was just what I needed --- gorgeous sunshine and flower blossom scent and birds. Today looks like another real possibility to get out and clear my mind after lunch. And this morning's exercise routine went well too ... Read more
Maybe Today?
Tuesday, June 11, 2019      23 comments

Yesterday it was pouring at noon and thereafter -- no possibility for a recess walk. But: today looks pretty much perfect. Sunny, not too hot. So: I'm hoping to get out there: it makes such a difference to my afternoon!! The mor... Read more

Yes, DH also liked that pasta al limone -- and we enjoyed that little arugula salad that my sister and I had not got to plus some more of the rhubarb pie for dinner. Nothing easier than leftovers!! It's a gorgeous day here with lovely suns... Read more
Pasta al Limone
Saturday, June 08, 2019      25 comments

Lunch with my sister was so much fun -- she just loved the house renovations and in particular the kitchen! I will say that my experimental pasta recipe is a winner!! I'd never tried this technique before, and I changed up the ingredients ... Read more

Gardening Scheduled!
Thursday, June 06, 2019      22 comments

It's a gorgeous blue sky day -- I walked around inhaling lilac and lily-of-the valley before breakfast and picked some fresh bouquets for the kitchen table: with japonica, long stemmed blue violets and forget-me-not. And: I'm hoping to ... Read more
