To be healthy you must be an activist. You must push yourself past your comfort zone. I was looking for a cure & I found my life!!!
- Thanks Lupe and Lorna for your encouragement! XO
Lorna ~ we did it! ♥
Great stretch! I need to do this one more often.
I am going hiking. I am ready to walk out the door. It's already 63....heading for a high of 81 with nothing but blue skies. Church this evening at 7p. Mass of the Lord's Supper.

- One more day Lorna ~ we've got this one. ♥
Lotsa encouragement today.... Thank you Troy, Bobbie, Amanda, Zada and Mike for your encouragement and sweet notes. XO
And it seems that most all of my encouragers believe that I sleep well. HA! Nothing could be farther from the truth. I don't sleep well. Most nights I am up and down several times. Some times I am just out of bed for a few minutes (feeding a pesky elderly kitty) or I could be up for hours. The lack of sleep rarely interferes with how I feel during the day though....I usually feel like the Energizer bunny, but now and then I will take a ten minute nap....and then I am ready to go again ~ a brief nap can be so revitalizing.
I do make a point of turning off the television at least an hour before heading to bed....I definitely don't look at the computer. I read to relax, take warm baths.....I drink chamomile or Sleepy Time tea and take a magnesium supplement (this really great fizzy stuff added to warm water) most evenings. I usually sleep deeply for a few hours, but then I wake. I like to blame it on menopause....I like to blame EVERYTHING on menopause. LOL!!
It has been a gorgeous day here in Sedona. I went on a three hour hike and then walked over to Charlotte and Dan's to take in the mail and newspapers, water plants outside, checked on the house. All was well.
I hope all of you have a wonderful day!

- Thanks Shirley for your encouragement. :)
Day Three Lorna ~ we're at the summit. Yay us!!
My mom taught my siblings and me from a young age that going through bad times are a part of life. We learned to adapt and adjust to our circumstances....to always reminds ourselves that all experiences (bad or good) are learning experiences, that things will get better, and to never "push" anything as all things will unfold as they are intended and at the right time. So, whenever I am going through a rough time, I remind myself of what my mom taught me....and to know that something good/great will come out of the bad times.
Wishing all of you a restful and peace-filled evening!

- Day Two Lorna....moving right along. ♥
Thank you Lisa and Joyce for your encouragement!! XO
I prefer real food, whole foods.....so for the most part I am good on this challenge. Although I do love potato chips....I just don't buy them. Solves having the temptation around. I hate it when potato chips call to me..."Eat me. Eat me!" LOL!
I am off from work for the week as Charlotte and Dan have taken their daughter and family, and Dan's mom and her husband to Disneyland and LEGOLAND for the week. BUT....., Dan sent me a text yesterday telling me that I needed to go over to the house to pick up their tax returns (7 different mailings) to take to the post office to mail. WHAT!? I steer clear of the post office twice a year ~ for the ENTIRE month of December and the days leading up to April 15th. I stood in line for nearly 45 minutes and then each envelope needed to be sent certified with proof of delivery. Painstakingly long process! ARG!! Not only did I need to deal with all of their tax mailings, but also several returns Charlotte was making....which I needed to first repackage, label and haul into the post office in two large totes..... Then there was also the MOUNTAIN of dry cleaning Charlotte needed dropped off..... YIKES!!!
Okay, thanks for letting me vent. UPSIDE to all of this....I am now not due back to work until a week from tomorrow. I plan to definitely enjoy a beautiful week....hiking, gardening, attending services for Holy Week both at the church I attend and at the Chapel of the Holy Cross. It's all good!
Hope all of you are having a wonderful Monday!

- Day One Lorna ~ thanks for joining me.
Thank you Dee for your encouragement!!
Okay. Will give the challenge some thought. Nothing is coming to mind at the moment.....although, I use to always eat while reading, but I have (for the most part) nipped that bad habit in the bud. I gotta get moving. Just getting home from hiking. My hubby is working with clients today and I am meeting Reg to work on subdivision design things at 2p. Definitely need to shower.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
