Here I Am, Again

Well, another long absence has occurred! And I need/want so badly to catch up on reading some of your blogs. I've neglected my online friends and I don't know what my excuse is! I was also going so well with the 52 photos project and fell completely off the wagon with that. It's been so hot and I can't say the last time I've gotten out with my big camera to take pictures. Hopefully as the cool fall comes in I will be inspired to get out more.

I am still eating mindfully and walking or exercising at the gym nearly every day of the week. I'm still losing weight. I've added a yoga class to my regime that is offered through our wellness center at work. I'm enjoying that one a lot. I also went to a "body sculpting" class that is designed to tone muscles. That one was harder than I expected it to be! But I suppose I will go back again for some more of it when the time comes next Monday to return.

This is another one I've done on my phone. It was basically a stream of consciousness piece, lightly edited. This is part of the road I walk on when I am in the country.There is just something about walking that clears my head and puts me in a better frame of mind. I don't do it everyday now since I go to the gym and use the elliptical. But on the weekends, I usually get two good walks in, one of them in the country.

I'm doing 10Q again this year. I did them in 2010, skipped 2011 (or just let the deadline pass to get the questions answered, I had good intentions, but you know what they say about good intentions) and did them again in 2012. Reading the answers a year later is an interesting experience.


  1. I love this pic and words. I am going to claim them as mine too today if you do not mind. Oh heck...I know you don't mind. So thank you.

  2. OH wow. I love the stream of consciousness bit. A LOT. A whole lot. Yes, I do.

  3. I love it... I think we all fell off the wagon with blogging and wouldn't mind starting again either. I have been thinking about it the past couple weeks. Certainly safer and saner than Facebook. Oh Lord deliver me. Thanks for getting the ball rolling Diane... maybe we'll all get motivated.

  4. I'm going through a bit of "funk" with the blog, myself, Annie, few visitors leaving one to not be concerned about posting regularly while, at the same time, giving concern that absence will offend those who do drop by. Why is that? The writing is really about exercising my own mind, a way of relaxing with my own thoughts, so why feel guilty over time in-between and most of the entries pertaining to what goes on in my life? Your words here are beautiful, expressing a common theme within us all....


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
