This one will be short, though. The golf course is calling to me.
Laura commented about her blogging friends fading away; a food blogger I read (Simply Cooking) has recomitted to hers...and it seems that things are coming together to move me forward in this area, too.
The disc golf course is calling. It's noon already and the days are short. Time to get out there. Especially since I have not done much moving in the last week.
So, for now, I'll just say a couple of things, just in case any of you old readers still check in now & then.
I'm getting physical in my old age. :)
Can't say what's driven it, exactly, but I do know that I LOVE to eat, and I can't keep doing that (and live) if I don't move my butt.
Back in the summer, Jim told me about Lance Armstrong's site, and a special feature there called My Plate. (I don't care much for the separate Men/Women portals, but it seems to make little difference.) The KEY is that I can track what I eat and what I DO. For a couple of months, I just tracked food. Then I finally put in a weight goal and am really succeeding!
It's very satisfying to me... and I rarely miss a day. Missed a couple over the holidays, or was incomplete...but basically I have a new healthy habit! But this new consciousness about food has become quite a happy event, and is so TOTALLY different from any other approach to food control I've tried in the past.
I've also joined a hiking group called the Trail Snails. I hike with them on Wednesdays when they do a 3-5 miles 'easy' hike. On Mondays, they go for about twice as far... and usually much more difficult terrain. I'll be ready for that one come this summer! there are tons of pictures from these excursions, as you might imagine, and I'm sure some will show up here.
And my good friend, (and tai chi teacher) Jim, has introduced me to disc golf. I'm hooked. It's a lot of fun! and burns some good calories.
Music is still a big part of my life. This winter I got (briefly) into Karaoke and have a lot of fun singing harmony with my friend, Ile. I'll post some pictures later on.
I've been on hiatus from the bass, too; but am still finding cool things to play. I'll be exploring a music editing program, too so I can be my own one-woman band. Stay tuned!
That's it for today. See you soon.
