ZEN TIME was my watchword yesterday. A wonderful, peaceful walk in Descanso before my therapy appointment. I truly loved my time there watching the birds, hearing the water flow in the irrigation channels and streams. Good moment to remind myself that there is more in nature that connects me to my inner self than there is on junk TV.
Tax appointment over for another year, YAY! Went better than we expected double YAY! It is always good when you owe less than you were planning on.
Bike Ride, Voice Acting practice (Character Voice day is this Saturday – so trying to do the work and remain calm about it). Also trying to get my book read for book club, also on Sat. How does this time just FLY from me….(hmm related to the junk TV habit maybe?????)
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
BB (Body Balance) number 8 Sleep: 7.5 hours divided into 3 (good first 4, ok last 1.5 good last 2) Tummy/Gut: gut a bit more full than tummy. Ate dinner later than usual. Not hungry after 1 hours of waking (will wait for awhile, but will eat before biking) Energy: High Moderate. Mood: A Little Nervous (character day tomorrow)
BB is my personal criteria, and I don’t think too hard about it. I ask myself at the keyboard, what is my BB? A number between 1-10, including halves, pops into my head. I write it in my post Then I figure out why it is higher or lower and gently make note.
If you are interested these are my measures.
- Sleep. Quality and Amount.
- Tummy/Gut – If I ate what my body asked for, usually above and below the belly button feel balanced. Ate too much, below the belly button feels more full. Ate too little, the reverse.
- Am I hungry within 1 hour of waking? I have found that I feel best if I am hungry within 1 hour of waking. This tends to make my eating day even and not heavy on food in the evening. But I don’t eat if not hungry unless I’m about to ride or hike. I’ve learned I need to fuel these morning activities, or I’ll bonk.
- What is my energy level? Subjective, but telling.
- A quick look at my mood.
