Give Us Your Body, We’ll Give Your Mind

I wish I could go back time and never have taken psychiatric medication. I’m not even sure how much I credit it with my stability. There are definitely times that it was helpful, but did I ne…

Working off the pounds

I completed my first round of fitness evaluation with the Kinesiologist the other day. I learned how to use the various torture machines they have in their gym. My foot is still bothering me so we had to keep it short, but her evaluation was the same. I was fat and out of shape; or words to that effect.excersize

My objective is to start at 2 days a week, then move up to three when my foot has had a chance to heal.  Overall I did enjoy the machines since they do a lot of the work for you. The only one I didn’t like was the exercise bicycle because I could not find a comfortable position on the seat. A common occurrence I have been told.

I go in again next Tuesday. I will still be full of turkey. That should be fun.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate this weekend! happy thanks giving

Please give me a reason, tofall leaves3
Prepare for the season

Leaves are beginning to turn
Endless beauty of amber and gold

Dare I go back to another time?2013-11-18 09.17.37
Endless memories when you were mine,
Renders me sad, renders me blue

So now that you’re gone
And I must continue on
No more memories, no more you

Gathering thoughts for the reason, to
Ready myself for the season
I am ready for Fall
And knowing we’re through

Dear World, We Are Not Monsters- Mental Illness, Media, Stigma

we have apples

We can’t keep labeling people who commit heinous acts of violence with the same term used for one in four people in this county with mental health conditions.

How are we labeling these violent, heartless killers with the with the same term (“mental illness”) that is used to describe people like Robin Williams and Kay Redfield Jamison (brilliant psychiatrist and author with bipolar disorder) and the many wonderful, compassionate, kind, thriving members of our community? Continues……

A Journey to Fitness

Well I had my first meeting with the Nurse yesterday. With my Doctor’s blessings, I have joined the Get Fit program. I start by  having to offer up myself up to weights, measurements, blood tests, and cardio tests.

I am not saying I don’t need all of this, I signed up with my free will. I have lost over 60 lbs. this year so far. I just need a bit more of a push to lose the other 60 or so lbs.home scale

Yesterday were meetings with the Nurse, Nutritionist, and Kinesiologist. That was a barrel of laughs. One to question me, one to make me feel guilty about what I am eating, and one to torture me on the fitness equipment. Fun wow. But, I have brought this down on myself for my own good. My Doctor will be happy.

I will keep you posted as this goes along.

I just found out that all my posts were being sent to my Facebook page. This is fine , I guess. It just opens my audience up a heck of a lot wider. It also means that people that I would never have read my blog are. Not a serious problem I guess. I haven’t told that many lies : ) .

The other surprise was I found out I have been broadcasting posts on ” Linkdin ” too. That one I had to stop, I meet professional colleagues on that one.308303-facebook-like-button-upside-down

The moral of my story is be careful what box you click.

My phone

My cell phone is in it’s last throws of agony. It is breaking down beyond my tolerable levels. Now, I have to go through the painful process of buying a new one.

I know very little about the new cell phones. but because my contract was up over a year ago, apparently the new phone will be free. I want to keep my old one as it has over 1200 songs on it. (I know…I know).

I am a die hard iPhone user. Simply because I have an iPad and use iTunes, It all fits together. I have finally grasped the workings of the “i Language” I don’t want to learn “Android”. It all sounds like too complicated to me.

My Daughter is a Cell phone pro so she is going to take me phone shopping next week. She is an “i Person” so she can get me the best deal.
