Sometimes the Best Part of Waking Up....


Good Morning My Confidants!


Whoa, did I sleep in!


Till nine and I could have slept later and I am just now at around ten making my morning post! I guess I needed to sleep in. And that while it certainly isn't the afternoon, sometimes the best part of waking up in doing it late.


I didn't go to bed that late last night.... Maybe I am still recovering from Planet ComiCon? It all going to show that weight reduction program I am on is exactly the right thing to do. It has to wear me out to carry all this weight with me every day everywhere that I go. It has to. And I know it isn't good for my heart and both my parents have/had heart issues.


So, reducing my weight is a really good thing.


I have mentioned it before, and I mention it again. I don't like to say, "losing weight." Words are powerful and often deeply unconscious. And when you lose something, what do you want to do? You want to find it. And I think with the secret magickal power of words, me losing weight in the past is what has made me find it again, over and over again.


I am going to climb a pyramid while they can still be climbed. I want to go back to Egypt and see the Valley of the Kings. I want to go to Greece and there is a lot of walking and uphill stuff there! I am going to walk all over Provincetown, hopefully during Bear Week (because weight reduction doesn't mean I have to be skinny, I don't want to get rid of weight because of shame)!


At this point I don't really want to exercise all that much either because of how much it wears me out. Again, I don't want to have a heart attack walking around the block! So, anther twenty pounds and then that will be a lot more feasible. I know Noah will help me. He exercises every day.


I am working on health health health. Body, mind, and spirit. In fact, I am looking for a therapist, one that is possibly experienced in poly patents. I don't want someone who doesn't understand and thinks my problems are because I have two spouses after all!


Anyway, I am up, if not exactly about yet. Typing this up while my mind is in this interesting stage where it is all from the heart. THEN I will go downstairs for coffee. That's right! I am writing this before coffee! Wow!


Are you doing anything for your wellbeing? Have you thought about it? Quitting smoking or drinking less alcohol or exercising or eating healthier or getting a therapist or dumping a so-called "friend" or spouse that gives you far more grief than happiness and love?


It's an old line, but we really only have this one life. Let's make the best of it. Do things that make us happy (as long as it isn't causing harm to others), laugh more, smile more. Yes, smile.


I've already covered here more than once how much smiling as been proven to make us healthier!


Anyone want to get healthy with me?


I hope so!


Peace, Love, and Healthier Days to All!

I did get a gym membership and have been a few times, though not enough. Need to get back to it.

From Marj: Might also be the Day Light Savings "spring ahead" bit. My goal is 24 lbs this year. More next year too.

I have been actively working on my physical health for almost three years. I got rid of 70 pounds of fat and put on about ten pounds of muscle. Still more to do in each direction. I got rid of my non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), my formerly high blood pressure is now normal, my a-fib is gone, I am no longer pre-diabetic. The only prescriptions I am taking now are hormone replacements.

Getting healthier physically has also helped my mental health. No more brain fog or depression symptoms. My spiritual journey continues.
