I got on the darn thing and rode up and down those six blocks again this evening. My knees were complaining so I only did that once – then picked up all the walnuts and ran around cleaning. I’m grateful for being able to do that. Rochester Fiber has three new listings completed this evening and I’ve got notes for another page that I should be creating this evening, one outlining additional services. But instead I think I’m going to finish a book!

Ten minute segments. My Sundays are broken down into short bursts of productivity, timed to be ten minutes long. When the alarm sounds, I take a moment to reflect that yes, I remained on task for those ten minutes and then immediately move onto another ten minutes of some other project. It’s not set in stone; this post may be broken into sections of writing time, but the apples were cut up for dehydrating in an un-timed section of time cause I didn’t want to be touching my phone with sticky hands. But for the most part I move rapidly…

That is not the smoothie I made, that one is almost gone. So very good and good for me. I know, kinda high in sugar but I’m trying to change my eating habits for the good, and this is better than loads of sugar in my coffee. Which is sans-sugar today. Go me. No, really, Go Me!! Taking a walk later today, after I get a project finished. I wanted a short food break though, and to take my brain somewhere other than After Effects. I do love Adobe products, very fun toys, but any time I face a new…

  …I’ll get out of this chair. I should take a long walk and gain some steps for my fitbit log; people who have been out for the weekend will get home and surpass me – poof – as their fitbits sync. There are so many lovely places to walk right now with Spring bursting out all over. Yesterday we walked along the Zumbro River in Rochester and then downtown, checking out the restaurants with outdoor seating. We still ended up out at the new La Poblana on North 37th St. I got food so spicy that it hurt to…

  I think it was during the summer we moved into Oronoco that Van stopped at a garage sale and bought a GT Outpost all terrain bike, with a flat tire. I fixed that flat today and pedaled it around the block. I was thrilled to still remember how, and a little taken back about how fast I seemed to be going. In first gear. I suppose I’ll get used to it again. Happily the brakes worked and I didn’t fall down since I don’t have a helmet yet. Well, I do…but they are the wrong sort. Middle-aged over-weight women…

For the couple’a weeks I have experienced a burning in my stomach, mostly localized in the left side right by my short ribs but sometime spreading across a distinct area. And it is annoying but not stopping me from anything, and weird since I’ve really cut a lot of fat from my diet, cut down on coffee and other things that cause problems, I was feeling pretty healthy for a change, well, I am proud of the dietary changes. So what gives, Tummy? I think, and this is a thought born at 70 miles per hour n the highway last…

I had a bag of trail mix that has a lot of peanuts in it. I just finished a handful and I can feel my throat tightening up. I’m wondering if I have a sensitivity to the peanuts or was it something else maybe something in the environment?  I’ve spent several months cleaning food out of my diet that I have trouble with and I keep noticing new reactions to things. Like this reaction is a reaction I’ve had before but I never paid much attention to it, and now I am. Crazy! What sort of a rabbit hole am…

Van bought a roast from Gorman’s Meat Market in Pine Island – I browned it in rice flour (his request) and then threw the mushrooms and onions into the pan to saute before they went into the crockpot with the meat. It’s a pretty big roast. The best cuts are always the biggest and it will make for yummy lunches this week. And this is locally-sourced meat as part of our efforts to eat better food. I’m down a couple of pounds and I can jog longer today than I could a week ago. Workout is done – ha! the…

Having had another really fun evening and night, I have decided that I can’t not take this step to try to figure out what is bad for me. But… coffee is on this list…how will I survive?? *grin* As with all allergy tests, it too has its flaws.  But it’s inexpensive, easy to do, empowering you do it, not a lab and you experience the results first-hand, which can be a more powerful stimulus for dietary changes than a lab test. via Precision Nutrition Coaching | How To Do An Elimination Diet. This is a link I grabbed months ago….

There is a chart somewhere in my life where I am supposed to be noting when I complete a workout, but frankly I think I am doing a better job of noting it on FaceBook than on that online form. I thought it was going to be motivating to see the colored squares but not so. I follow a runner who is trying to get back into his game; there’s a pretty good post linked below. I liked this line: I will continue to run in ignorance. I will hold to my conviction that simply knowing usually the distance and…
