Endogenous Morphine

Available from Amazon
A big thanks to my friend in Florida who listened to a snot-slinging me for an hour on the phone last night.  Jeez Louise.  Rather cathartic, I suppose.  I knew this morning that I wanted a big shot of feel good first thing - so I pulled out the running shoes and headed for the track.  Didn't have a lot of time, but needed to get sweaty and out-of-breath, so I did some HIITs - walking, sprints, jogging - all an intervals that were spaced enough to get a good sweat and heart rate going.  I was careful, however, to try to prevent injury as my cardio fitness level far outweighs my muscular-skeletal fitness level for running these days.  The last thing, the very last thing, I need right now is to be laid up with injury - or even slowed by intense muscle soreness.

Came back from the track and stretched out in the garden some, while doing a few small little gardening chores.  Good start to the day.

Take good care of yourself.  Be kind to others. Give yourself the best chance to be your best.



  1. Maybe you didn't leave the comments open on your previous post for a reason, but I feel compelled to say that a loss is a loss is loss...it's real. It doesn't matter how old you are or whether you thin you should be over it. Grief doesn't follow a specific timeline and the stages of it are often repeated. It's not a nice, neat linear process. Resisting your feelings will only make them persist.

    Glad you allowed yourself a chance to be your best...

    1. Thanks for this, Karen. I appreciate it.

  2. You had me at Morphine! lol!
    Some DFW FB people are thinking about meeting up -
    Maybe a Brazilian Streak House...maybe a Paleo Picnic in the Park in Plano!
    I would love to "meat" up!

    1. Sounds fun! Let me know the details....


We'll try this for a while.
