    2021-03-07 Checking It and (Mostly) Not Wrecking It ❤️💤☯️ ✔️✔️✔️

    It’s Sunday again and I’m up early and checking my stats. I changed things up for the month of March so this is my first week evaluating new measures.  For exercise I’m still keeping tabs on my step count but also trying to improve my heart function by making sure I get some good cardio […]

    2021-02-28 Looking Back to Improve the Future… 🗓 ✅🚫⏰

    It’s the last day of the month and the last day of the week AND the last day of my little experiment to untether myself from my phone. You know what that means? It’s time for the ultimate Sunday status.  First off.. I’ve already been analyzing “stats” for about 50 minutes of today’s walk so […]

    It’s Sunday and I’m checking my stats. How did I do meeting my goals?  For sleep I achieved my goal 6 of 7 nights.  Healthy eating.. 4 of 7.  Mood.. 4 of 7. Meditation.. 2 of 7.  Exercise.. 6 of 7.  Most of this looks good but feels a bit like funny money. Like you […]

    2021-02-14 Abbreviated Sunday Status

    It’s Valentine’s Day again and just because I’m married now and with a wonderful person doesn’t change a thing about the way I feel about this fake-ass holiday. I’ve historically taken this day as an opportunity to rant about that. But I’m more mature now and past ranting about the ridiculousness of a holiday dedicated […]

    2021-01-31 On Looking Back at What’s Past versus Looking to the Future (+Post Vacation Stats)

    One reason I try to write in a moment or a mood is that once it’s gone, the essence of it slips away from the immediate and tactile memory. It’s hard to recapture exactly what it was about that day, hour, or year when it’s past.  It is partly for that reason that I know […]

    Yesterday was another well balanced day that began with a lovely walk and several hours spent playing catch-up on all the GLR stuff that’s overdue to be completed. There’s still more to do but I can sail through the rest of the weekend feeling satisfied with my progress.  The day rolled along and I spent […]

    2020-09-23 Random Facts About Having 4 Cats (Among Other Things)

    Having four cats means you have to scoop litter boxes everyday. This morning I started crying in my kitchen. I was loading the dishwasher when Alexa started telling me about memorial plans for Ruth B.G. as a part of my daily news briefing. I had not really grieved the loss yet. It just happened. I […]

    2020-08-23 The Saturday AM Update

    I woke up at about 6:30AM and for the first time in a while, I’m looking forward to the day. Something about a long string of days that involve stuff you’re not looking forward to that really messes with a persons groove. I’ve obviously been in a funk. I’ve obviously been a broken record, stuck […]
