I spy an unexpected fellow traveler on the trail.

Podcast Recap

I tell my heart-pounding deer tale. I let go of time pressure and discover how time can be a guidepost instead. I share a few paragraphs from my latest blog post about overcoming fear and Dawny’s courageous response. We say hello to new BCs Taylor and Amanda who posted on the Compulsive Overeating Diary page on FB. Comments from last week’s show from BCs Dawny and Rabbit. A touching and brave call from new BC Kevin who last called the bravery hotline on day 130. I ponder grief, connection and how we grow into new identities.

Sunny day on the hiking trail through the foothills.

Another beautiful day on the trail down the mountain. No deer shared this part of the journey.

Starting up the mountain earlier than usual to take advantage of the early morning temperature and quiet.

Podcast Recap

Throw the Status Quo out the window and embrace change. Good-bye Erin Moran, an iconic actress from my middle and high school years. Extra love for BC Rabbit and Dawny. BC comments about Day 133 from Dawny, Mary S and Susie. Sue from the U.K lets us know how she’s coping with a difficult loss. I read snippets from my latest blog post about DIScouragement. BC Mary S. goes on the bravery report for her voice mail message about bravery and the challenges she’s been having since a foot injury. We ponder tracking food. Does it always lead to diet mentality?

I enjoy the stunning blue skies and golden light during the trek down the mountain.

Feeling proud, brave and stoked that I made it up the mountain.

Podcast Recap

Defeating negative self-talk where we spiral down the hopeless rabbit hole by wishing things away. I come clean about conflicted feelings about day 130. Gratitude to BC Karen for her encouraging note and to BC Susie for her kind phone call. Reading recommendations from Rabbit, Mary S. and me. Hello to new BC Lucie. Dawny makes me laugh with her reaction to my cooking story from the last show. Mary S. surprises me by restarting up the Coffee Klatch! How to send me cards, letters or other physical items. A walk down memory lane about the cool items I’ve received from BCs in the past. A deep and heartfelt comment conversation between Mary S. and me that triggers my bravery and I share the truth about my eating behavior of late and my feelings about it.

Smiling and feeling fine on the trail to the next to top Zen Space.

Podcast Recap

It’s a happy hike back up to the next to upper Zen Space where I let go of ingratitude to my own self! An exercise to increase gratitude. I play my Pig Whistle to wish BC Sandy a very happy birthday. Dawny does a whole set of awesome Springtime Foolish Fun. Comments by Dawny, Sandy, and Rabbit (love that name) about the last show. A comment of Rabbit’s sparks an idea. Should we have a BC reading list? BC Mary S. saves the day by letting me know about a comments glitch, which I was able to fix. Mary S also wants to know if we BCs are more prone to having a creative side. What do you think? I have a surprising reaction to a couple of compliments. Are we internalizing ageism and sizeism?

Here I am playing Happy Birthday to Sandy on the pig in my studio-guest room. My mic is in front of me right now and I’m recording the song for day 132.

Back on the Mountain with my Trusty Roland05 – What will I let go of today?

Podcast Recap

Back on the mountain I ponder the amount of power I give to negative thinking and brainstorm ways to let that go. I read a recent blog post asking if you, the BCs, would like COD to continue on as a weekly show, and if you would participate. Some comments about that from Sue from the U.K., BC Petra, Dawny, New BC Rabbit (Love that name!), BC Sharlene, BC Jackie and Stéfanie from Quebec. My pursuit of voice acting triggers some familiar feelings and I give a shout out to the special people in Richard Horvitz’ voice acting B class.

I am SO happy to have a shady bench at the next to upper Zen spot today.

Here’s a peek into my studio. I often speak to photos when I read copy at home to help me feel connected. This one is of my Mom when she first got engaged to my dad.
