      One Step at a Time - Dry (And Healthy, Self-Caring) July 2018




      Happy Dry (And Healthy, Self-Caring) July 2018

      Thank you Glassie for the following idea. I love it.

      For any of you who are still having occasional lapses with drinking would any of you like to join me in committing to Dry July as a new day one?

      But more importantly (and anyone else can join this too) a Happy, Healthy July! We are all so busy looking after everyone else, so lets all make this the month we commit to giving ourselves the same love we do to others, with whatever we know we need to do. For me the main things I need to focus on are nutrition, hydration, daily yoga and talking to myself the way I would to my loved ones. Id love to hear what you all think are the things you need to do to self-care.
      I hope that everyone drops in & joins us. Let's all take care of ourselves the way we take care of our loved ones.

      The neighbors are having a get together. Loud Mexican music. It's got a good beat, I'm about to get up and start dancing around the living room. LOL

      Well - I'm back. That song ended so it was a short dance. But it did make Mom laugh.

      Guess I will be hitting the sack pretty soon to read for a while. I was up a little after 5:00 this morning. I wanted a couple more hours. LOL

      Well - the neighbors have started their barbecue. Their grill is in the part of their backyard that is near our window. The smell of roasting meat is wafting in. GrossL.gif

      It was bad when we had the baby shower & the taco man here. But, at least I was outside and could move away from it. Time to close my window. Easy solution.

      It's nice to hear the fun over there though. It was just an eccentric man for so many years. We are really enjoying hearing a family.

      Oh Nora, I hate to tell you my mouth would be watering! I do so love a BBQ! I live in a Bi-level, so my patio and grill are on the ground level and my kitchen is upstairs. A lot of running up and down the stairs. In my younger days we would even eat outside, now I'm just too lazy! Thanks for starting us off.

      Happy July, Steppers. Have a GREAT month. I certainly will. In Techie news, I am taking a new cancer treatment. It is immunotherapy. Off the chemo and I am doing well. It holds a great deal of promise for me.

      In other news, I have been training two local athletes who will compete in The Malibu Triathlon in September. I could not enter again this year as my oncologist urged me NOT to train on my bike. So, I will be a frustrated spectator, but a proud coach. I think that will override any disappointment. I know I am getting too old for the rigorous training the sport requires. So, perhaps, Ill just stick to hiking, golf, and coaching with an occasional obstacle mud run. Lots of fun there .

      I would encourage all of you to read a great book called, The Biology Of Belief by Bruce Lipton!

      Thanks for the start up Nora,I know you don't eat meat so the bbq probably makes you gag,I'm with Liz and every time my neighbors start up their grills I'm jealous! Can't believe it's already July,,the time gets wasted when we drink,the blackout phase,the recovery is just draining,sucking my life and memories away,time to move forward and live the life I want,,alcohol is a hunk o junk and im sick of it,,here's to Dry July!
      I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

      I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

      Hello, hello.
      Going to have to get Mom up soon. Try to get her to at least change to clean jammies before my niece gets here. For some reason, she has been in a stubborn, confrontational mood so we shall see. The boyfriend might just be grandma with her wearing dirty jammies. LOL

      Techie - loved hearing an update. Thank you. I think coaching is a good way to stay 'in' the sport. Good thinking. I will try to check out that book. I don't know if I can read anything that takes a brain at the moment. But, we shall see.

      Well - I should be a grandma this month. Exciting and sort of scary. I want to be the best grandma for Savannah May. So, that means taking care of me too. So glad that Glassie thought of this idea.

      Have a wonderful Sunday and I will be back in a few hours.
