Some days…

It's safe to say that today did not go as planned. First off, I was grouchy pretty much from the time I woke up. That was followed by Lynn saying she wasn't feeling well and asking me to go down and cover the store, for at least part of the day. I did, but I … Continue reading Some days…

Feeling good, and balanced…

The last few days have absolutely flown by. I'm happy to say that after a two-week break to let my ankle injury heal I am back in the gym. I'm not jumping right back into things, however. I'm starting off by extending my treadmill routine a bit every day, reintroducing weights in a few days. … Continue reading Feeling good, and balanced…

Comfort and growth…

I've said before that the only constant in life is change. Dr. M and I connected for my six week post-discharge appointment. It was a good, positive, discussion and he agreed to follow up with me again in the middle of January, post holidays. The one thing that he did say, which has my brain … Continue reading Comfort and growth…

I need to find time…

Measuring progress in inches, not miles…

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on Pexels.com I have learned a lot over the last few years. I've learned that mental health recovery is possible, but that it takes work. I've learned that progress, real progress, is measured in inches, not in miles. Real progress is measured in the daily grind, how you respond to life's … Continue reading Measuring progress in inches, not miles…

Learning balance and time management…

Photo by Aphiwat chuangchoem on Pexels.com This evening finds me in a contemplative mood. Today was a pretty light day. I let myself sleep in, then did a few hours of coursework. I managed to finish off another module of my 20th Century history course, this time studying how Hitler used the 1936 Berlin Olympiad … Continue reading Learning balance and time management…

Holding steady…

Photo by Alex Andrews on Pexels.com The weekend hasn't been overly busy, but it has been steady. Saturday, I spent most of the day studying, working on my 20th Century History course. It's been feeling good getting back into the swing of things. I also picked up my new office chair on Saturday, and I … Continue reading Holding steady…

Forced slowdown… on the injured list…

The last few days have been fairly productive. I got a few articles done for work, and jumped back into my history course. Unfortunately, I've had to take a few days off from my workout regime due to an injury. I felt something pop in my left ankle as I was getting off the treadmill … Continue reading Forced slowdown… on the injured list…

Recharging…

Photo by SCREEN POST on Pexels.com Wow, it has been nearly a week since I have written last. The last week has been fairly busy. Today is the first break I've taken from my workout regime, though the day is still not over. I am feeling tired, though accomplished. My weight is slowly coming down … Continue reading Recharging…

Figuring out how far I can push myself…

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com Well, this has been a week. I've definitely been pushing myself hard this week. It seems like events and newsworthy activities have exploded in the region this week, and I've had a lot of articles to write as a result. As well, I spent some time attempting to make some … Continue reading Figuring out how far I can push myself…
