Mind Blown – Canadian Style
First things first! I want to write about this time change which I thought I was handling really well even though I do tend to get insomnia. Unfortunately I am so out of my mind tired right now that I can barely fake … ANYTHING!!!! Please let this be the start of a cold and not the start of insomnia!!!!
The sugar thing is going pretty well. Some backsliding but generally doing well.
The piriforma muscle issue is better and I made a lot of progress at first but I’m stuck. I have increased my flexibility to the point that I can now cross my legs (Whoo Hoo!) but I can’t seem to get the last 30% of this problem fixed. Pinky has resorted to having needles stuck in her butt and electricity added to that. I think I will just keep doing what I have been doing and let her find the ultimate cure. I’m not in a big hurry to sit on a tennis ball or hook myself up electro-shock of the arse just yet. Continue reading
More Stick Figures! Yeah!
First, ‘cause I know you have been waiting to hear, I am still cutting the sugar and I still feel much less insane. I have fallen off the wagon a couple times and whoo it is hard to get back on. I felt really good for the first month and it was easy cutting out extra sugar. Then I had a stressful day and my tummy was upset so I got myself some digestive cookies. Then I had some more. Then I ate an entire box of digestive cookies. Continue reading

Remember me! I used to write silly stuff semi-regularly about my life on this blog. What happened? I had a rough fall and I guess I just don’t want to write when I am down. I had a big run-in with sugar and it had me in a head-lock for a long time. It seemed like I could only shake it off for a few days and then it would come back and stomp me down even harder. Continue reading
I haven’t written for a while. I’m tired! I’m cranky! I’m bored! I want somebody else to make it all better. I don’t want to do this and I don’t want to do that and I don’t want to eat anything healthy. I’m having a full on temper tantrum so I am going to sit and stew about it.
OK it isn’t really all that bad. It’s just the fall is my time of the year when I feel my best and I haven’t been feeling my best and I don’t want to take responsibility for it yet. I would rather blame it all on the construction next door (12 hours a day, 7 days a week and their generator running slobs that drove a cement truck back and forth over my lawn and they put the porta-potty under my bedroom window so I smell it.) Also I hurt my back showing off. Usually when things go bad I figure they are unlikely to get worse so I get a little happy. This time I am just wallowing in the sh*t or at least smelling it (OK, I made them move the pooper). Continue reading
Good thing I am chewing on this brain now before it gets any more moldy bits
For a while now I have been taking a Mindful Makeover course from JillFit on Facebook. Every day I get an email and assignments so I can figure out what is going on in my head and change a few things that need adjustments. I talked about the course in my post Noticing and Naming Journal.
I have now reached the half-way point in the course and I am supposed to answer the following questions. I figured I would share with you so you. Partly so I can navel gaze with an audience that I won’t know if they yawn or leave before the intermission, so I can assume they are fascinated with my every thought. Continue reading

This is how you do Food Porn and that is how you do ketchup!!
Why do people fill up my Facebook feed with pictures of their meals? Sometimes they are half eaten meals. I don’t need to know that you perform the sacrilege of letting the green beans touch your mashed potatoes. It puts me right off my food to see that there is a dollup of ketchup on your plate that has obvious signs that has been used but, there is nothing on your plate that goes with ketchup. Are you just sticking your finger in the ketchup and eating it straight. Please tell me you are not dipping the green beans! Bletch!! Continue reading
So, I’m taking this “Mindset Makeover” course right now that will make my biggest asset (my mind! Not my sarcastic mouth!) even more shiny and beautiful than it is already. I started it a little skeptical because really who is going to tell me anything I don’t already know! I was pretty certain that I don’t talk negatively to myself and blah, I don’t really want to spend time journaling particularly as I can’t read my own writing. Well, you know how it is “the pride comes before a fall”. You know the original quote is “Pride goeth before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs, 16:18. Destruction? Dramatic much?
