I haven't been feeling good mentally or physically since I changed diets Feb 1st. so she wants me to go back to what made me feel good and… Continue reading Consistency
Something I learned a long time ago was this "your brain believes whatever you tell it". Good or bad, right or wrong. It cannot make that distinction. I learned that in highschool. I got to go to see a motivational speaker. I never could have afforded it but my bestfriend's mom had extra tickets. I… Continue reading It just takes practice!
I thought for some reason that when this lockdown lifted and I could socialize again that I would be feeling oh so happy but I'm sad to report that I still feel blah and apathetic. I've been battling a major depressive episode for the last few years. Off and on. Mostly on. Not sure but… Continue reading Eating to improve mood

Give me a cactus 🌵 and I'm happy ❤️ Or rocks. I really like rocks. I asked… Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day

Yoga for bigger bellies and curves. Props. Yoga is for everyone, not just fit thin yogis. This is… Continue reading Yoga time
Well I've been feeling a bit meh. A bit off. For several days. I think it might be that my blood pressure is too low. Maybe. I'm going to call my dr tomorrow. I'm not sure if my at home monitor works that well but my wrist cuff and my Fitbit (knockoff) keep saying I… Continue reading A little meh
Working on more art today 😊 Confession #1 I weighed myself today. I'm down 14 pounds since Jan 1st. Which is great. But I wasn't supposed to weigh myself until Feb 28th. Confession#2 I had a large diet coke today. I haven't had one since December. I wanted one on my free day last weekend… Continue reading Confession
I signed up to do a virtual 5k. Which I plan to walk, not run. I've done two 5k walks before. Both to support lung cancer. One in Nova Scotia and one in Oklahoma City. I don't have any desire to be a runner. I'll be happy just to be able to walk pain free… Continue reading Virtual 5k
