  1. Two more short walks today. Probably didn't amount to much, but I got a lot of fresh air.
  2. I read an article this morning about the studies which have shown the link between sugar and depression. The more sugar you eat, the more susceptible you are to being depressed. Also, apparently getting off sugar is harder than quitting cocaine. I have a tough road ahead of me, and I'm frankly not convinced I can do it, but I've love to severely cut down my sugar intake and even my dependence on diet sodas which keeps my sweet tooth hungry.
  3. OMG, just took Etta out and it was lovely. It was a bit too hot--83 degrees--but so beautiful. The sky was so blue and the fluffy clouds so white the trees and grass were so green, and there was a pretty consistent breeze to temper the heat. We took our time meandering and sitting on benches in the shade and it was so nice. I reconnected with nature for the first timei n weeks, and I feel like it charged up my emotional battery.
  4. 15-minute dance cardio. Hopefully this is just phase one. I didn't sleep a wink last night or this morning (I fell asleep sometime after noon), so suffice is to say I don't think I'll get any sleep tonight either. Considering my legs were aching horribly this evening when I was going in and out, it feels nice to stretch them out and use them just now.
  5. I'm now back to my early February weight--it's like the last two months never happened...and it does sort of feel like I've been in another dimension. Maybe I'm emerging on the other side now. I want to make some progress this month, and I'm recommitting myself to intermittent fasting...again. I just have to remember to stay on track.
  6. My sister sent a pic of my niece holding up a sheet behind her with her hands spread out like wings. She was pretending to be a "gampire". lol
  7. Tell me about it. After a great January, and a promising February, I haven't made any losses since. In fact, I gained back a few pounds--something I'm very frustrated about since I wanted this to be my year to finally make my goal it's nearly halfway over. Nothing so far. I was thinking of taking a nice walk with the rising sun, but my lower back has just started hurting for no apparent reason. In general, I've been so tired and lazy for the last couple weeks and I don't know how to snap out of it.
  8. 30 minute cardio dance. My mind was otherwise occupied, so I got through it but I'm not sure how much effort I actually put in.
  9. I don't know what kind of rabbits we have around here but we have gray ones, white ones, brown ones, I think I saw a black one once...they're little and cute and mostly come into the neighborhood at night. They're so fast that Etta can barely ever catch them. Before I moved here, I don't think I'd ever seen a rabbit in real life and now they're literally everywhere. We also have frogs, lizards, gators in the creek, turtles, lots of big birds--including peacocks!--and of course squirrels. I've never experienced so much nature until I moved into this neighborhood that is filled with parks. Matterfact, the only thing that annoys me about this neighborhood is the people! lol Oh, speaking of which, we got new neighbors two doors down and their dog gave birth maybe like a week ago and they're looking to give away the puppies. I know it's not really the time or situation to get another dog, but I'm afraid of I see their cute little puppydog faces I'll fall in love with one of them.
  10. ¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo! 🇲🇽
  11. I had a dream the other night that my grandma--the one who passed when I was 10--was alive and was hugging me. I was so taken aback when I woke up. I'm not even sure why I was thinking about her, but it did feel comforting.
  12. I did "Day 2" of 30 Days of Yoga With Adrienne...and then I realized she has multiple day 2 videos from multiple 30 day challenges. So I think I did the wrong video. 🤷‍♀️ It's also really frustrating to realize I can't do the asanas as easily as I could when I was thinner and more in shape, and as a result yoga is now very hard work and not very relaxing. It's just more fuel to lose the weight--not just for vanity, but so I can do more things with my body and be stronger.
  13. Thought it wouldn't be so bad to walk out there with my husband and Etta as it's only 70 degrees. But the air is literally wet. There's so much dew on the grass that it soaked through my sneakers and socks. And then two mosquitos bit me. -_-
  14. "I wish I wrote the way I thought; Obsessively, Incessantly, With maddening hunger. I'd write to the point of suffocation. I'd write myself into nervous breakdowns, Manuscripts spiraling out like tentacles into abysmal nothing. And I'd write about you a lot more than I should." --Benedict Smith
  15. A short walk. Day #1 of 30 Days of Yoga With Adriene. Followed by a short mediation video. I feel very centered and loose in my muscles.
  16. It's raaaaaaaaaaaaaaining, it's pooooooooooooouring...
  17. It wasn't too bad today. I was fully expecting my car to feel like a sauna but it wasn't bad. Then again, my throat has been sore since last night so I think I'm coming down with something, hopefully just a cold.
