I’d like to urge everyone of age in the USA, whose eligible, to vote. Today (Tuesday, November 6, 2018) is Election Day in the USA. There are many issues that affect those like me with mental illness or other illnesses, significantly. Or ones that don’t now, may very well in years to come. No matter what your priorities are, everyone’s vote makes a difference. Not voting is often regrettable. Around 40% or more eligible voters don’t vote. Imagine that! That’s horrible that non voters’ interests aren’t represented!
Not registered to vote? Though in some states it’s too late to register on election day, in several states there is same day registration that makes it possible. See http://www.ncsl.org/research/electio…istration.aspx for details. If it is too late in your state, please consider registering as soon as possible, so you can vote in the next election.

Main Topic: Totally falling off the weight loss effort wagon
One of my main purposes in creating these Friday Fitness and Weight Loss updates was to stay mindful of my eating and exercise, or lack thereof. I promised to post these updates every week with only exceptions for vacations, sickness, or emergencies. I, obviously, did not keep that promise.

I won’t claim to be currently vigilant about the effort, but I’m being mindful about it again. Below you’ll see a bit what happened since August 31, 2018. Continue reading
This post marks the end of the first week of my fitness and weight loss efforts. If you haven’t already read it, please see the other post I posted today that describes my weight loss plan/strategy and tool(s). Future posts in this series will only contain the type of information I provide below, which includes my weight change amount, the amount of exercise I did, a reflection of my week in regards to my diet and fitness, and the interim goal I’ve set, and how close I got to it. I will always include a hyperlink at the bottom of these weekly posts to my plan/tool description post. Here’s my first installment: Continue reading
How on earth could one imagine not smiling from ear to ear with handfuls of baby bunnies? I don’t know who I want to kiss first. Maybe that little blond boy!
I hope everyone had a lovely Easter!
So you know, the mother did continue to care for her baby bunnies.
Season’s Greetings, Friends!

I’ve been struggling to write in my blog lately, and haven’t been able to read as many other bloggers’ posts as I’d like. I’m sorry! Initially, the struggle had to do with my inability to concentrate due to various levels of bipolar mania (high energy). Now I just plain don’t have sufficient energy. Continue reading
