Win an Amazon gift card!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a great day today. I have a fun contest down below. I’ve been hard at work on my memoir, and I’ve been getting super-useful feedback from Sonya’s writer’s group. I accepted a long time ago that no one can write a great novel (or novel-length memoir) withoutContinue reading “Win an Amazon gift card!”

A walk of 15,000 calories begins with a single step!

I’m unhappy with my weight loss efforts thus far. I’ve mostly been sticking to my diet, which includes a long list of healthy lifestyle changes, but I haven’t been losing much weight. And I devoted all of 2021 to athletics but haven’t been to the gym lately. So I’ve recently pledged to burn 15,000 caloriesContinue reading “A walk of 15,000 calories begins with a single step!”

Joyce Vedral’s pyramid system!

I’m really proud of myself today because my muscles are sore from working out yesterday with my home gym. And I only exercised for about fifteen minutes. I brought the home gym up here to my room, and I can already tell that I’ll use it all the time now. Yesterday, for the first time,Continue reading “Joyce Vedral’s pyramid system!”

Paradise is just out of reach.

I’ve been getting used to the hearing aids, by some miracle, and here’s another miracle: yesterday, I was walking the puppy with my dad when a car stopped at a yellow light. The car behind honked at them, so the driver veered off onto a side road to escape the other driver’s wrath. The honkingContinue reading “Paradise is just out of reach.”

Great news!

I have great news! Apparently my weight-loss efforts have been paying off. That, or our scales are broken. [Shrugs.] I weighed myself today and couldn’t believe it. I think I’m making progress and am on the right track. I’ve just got to keep it up. I’ve come up with a tenuous solution to my dietingContinue reading “Great news!”

Be still my heart! No, really, slow down!

So I finally broke down and sought out medical care today when I took my resting heartbeat once again, and it was 100. Same old, same old. I figured that can’t be healthy. I haven’t been able to do my treadmill routine ever since I was vaccinated twelve days ago, and nothing has improved. IContinue reading “Be still my heart! No, really, slow down!”

I’m a genie in a bottle!

Darn it all! It’s been eight days since I got the vaccine, and I still can’t do my treadmill routine anymore. I went back and tried, and I got lightheaded. My pulse skyrocketed, so I turned down the speed of the treadmill from 3.2 mph to 2.5 mph (while maintaining the 4° incline). That gotContinue reading “I’m a genie in a bottle!”

Struggling but doing it!

I awoke with a dreadful headache and finally took some pain pills. I’m not sure if I’ll make it to the gym today. It’s becoming harder and harder to go, especially since I haven’t yet conquered the footwear issue. I think my second pair of new shoes (which will hopefully work better than the first)Continue reading “Struggling but doing it!”
