Considering it’s only 2 more days left and I started midstream: my progress is satisfactory.
Convinced the family that my father in law needs extended care and scheduled his mental evaluation. (I also managed not to hurt anyone in the process)
Supported my son through his breakup with his longtime girlfriend. Without discouraging his cross-country trip with her.
Cared for myself…. A long time coming
eating breakfast daily
committed to 21 day meditation
Looking forward to March Bootcamp, very thankful for February and the kickstart it gave me. 2 months ago
where restless exhaustion and inner knowing collide. Truth is: I am the more I am searching for. Not giving out what I want to receive will not help me find it. Even if that means giving it to myself. Ever get the feeling that your day to day life is often the rerun of a bad sitcom? My sense of humor lets me laugh, but the jokes are really tired and the show has jumped the shark. Tonight I changed the channel. I have no idea what”s on. Gratitude and Love are the hosts. Tuning in to see who the surprise guests will be. Some will definitely be unknown, others will return. All in all, time to enjoy the show. 2 months ago
My reward next weekend for a full week of fitness. Let the games begin. 2 months ago
Staring this goal in the face with extreme resistance and no idea why exactly. When did I become a slug? The thought of moving makes me tired. Who is this person? With all the stereotypical diseases that run through my bloodline, (associated with obesity), it’s time to put feelings and low motivation aside: because they really have nothing to do with it. The proof is in the family lifespan. Thanks for allowing me to sit here and get over myself. Bad feeling is still there, but I’m doing it anyway. Ok Pilates, here I come. 2 months ago

I was overwhelmed at the store several visits and I just don’t trust the salespeople. In the meantime my husband bought me some one a day for women, and my nephew gave me some B12. Everyone is tired of watching me drag my bum. Time to get moving! I tend to slow down when it’s cold and that has depleted my energy level I am sure. Snow is not my friend and I miss the southern sun and Mardi Gras festivities. All the same I should join The Y, a gym or something,(notice the word “should” in this sentence.) Obviously an attitude adjustment is needed. Working on it. 3 months ago
Thank you. I have missed you too. There was a shortage of computers in my house and I was last on the totem poll. Now that everyone has there connection, I am free to return to my favorite haunts. Glad to be back. How are your smalls? Not so small I imagine. 3 months ago
Thank you Missa. I have contacted The Mich Office on Aging. The problem is my father in law is refusing all outside care. We are currently waiting for his primary care physician to do a mental evaluation so that we can proceed on his behalf.
Our other option was to have an ambulance pick him up for an immediate evaluation considering he has proven to be a danger to himself and others. That option proved to be too cruel for my family to bear. In the meantime we are on constant watch. My husband and I look like raccoons around the eyes. However until the evaluation is done we are in a sort of limbo. 3 months ago
My father in law is an 87 year old diabetic and renal dialysis patient. We are his current caregivers and he lives with us. Did I mention he’s non compliant. He doesn’t want to take all his medications or follow his diet or eat anything that is good for him…. or sometimes eat at all. Not to mention the male chauvinism that rears it’s ugly head when he needs to feel some sense of control in a overpowering situation.
The situation is beyond our control and my husband is drowning.
So tomorrow I will make the phone calls that will help bring about some closure.
Now that I think about it, closure is not what we need. What we need is a safe place for the man to live out the rest of his life and this is not it. Period. If I were to list his antics it would sound like a dark comedy. We are all lucky to be alive and my husband just is not the man for this job. It angers me because I don’t want it either. 3 months ago
I’m sure my body is running on insufficient fuel, especially for my age. Life has been busy and I have made one stop too many at my local fast food joints. Healthy menu or not I am seriously fooling no one. Not to mention my new-found knowledge on MSG and it’s aliases, really where are they not hiding it? The combination of diet and caring for my 87 yr. old father-in- law has taken my energy level to an all time low. Yeah I know the right answers. Time to eat right, exercise, get more sleep, and put my gun toting father-in-law in an extended care facility. And so it begins. 3 months ago

Within me is the peace I seek….. If only my mind would quiet down long enough and often enough for me to keep it. Of course this is a life long goal. However, if I can grasp it for 21 consecutive days as of setting this goal, it can be considered done. And so it begins. Namaste 4 months ago
