Plains & Pastures Bike Tour (2013)

I'm so proud to live here! Fredericton folks are just AMAZING!!!  Thank you one and all!!  My team raised over $2000.  The support was humbling.  What a great place to be!!!

Mind you, the journey isn't about me - it's about people who fight this horrible disease on a daily basis.  If you're reading this now, I hope you'll come back and sponsor me in the ride next time. 


Bike for Breath

Many thanks to everyone and their generosity.  The amazing people in my life supported me to the tune of $377.  Some days it is just great to be here!   (Fall 2012)


Owning It

Man.  Honesty just sucks.  It's much, much easier to blame someone or make excuses.  So ... I fell off the wagon, lost the trail, lost the map, etc.  I think you get the picture.  Getting back on track is just as hard as I thought.  After all these years I'm beginning to know me.  If I let myself slide on one thing, I'll slide on a dozen.  And I did.

So... status check: I have NOT dropped swimming.  That's still a minimum of 1 km in the pool every workday lunchtime. I have been biking to work sporadically in good weather, now that the weather is better I've been much more regular at it.  The river is beautiful this time of year and the Osprey are back in the nest.

Food diary: that starts back again today.  Own what you put in your mouth.  Don't kid yourself.  Log it! 

Resistance training is next on the list.

Food choices: RE-eliminating ALL sugars and most starches.  That took a year before .... let's think about a couple weeks for that change back to healthy eating.

Sleep improvement -- that will happen with less tv and earlier nights.  Exercize also helps.

Stress management.  With several financial worries now under control this one is getting better day by day.  Time to put that course on mindfulness to work.  That's what got me through last spring but I let it slide when things starting coming around -- it's time to revisit those techniques.

Day by day.  My wonderful supportive cousin L told me that she had every confidence I'd turn myself around.  "You've come too far not to".  She's right.  Thanks L!
