Things seem to be going OK with the workouts. My daughter and I both report that with three relatively short workouts weekly we have both lost our "sugar crashes." 

This is a big deal and feels like it confirms the improved insulin processing described in the literature for "High Intensity Training."

I've been walking more and think that's also helping out. 

At work I'm thinking a lot about how to build on the assets of my community. It is interesting what people expect in regards to "cleaning up a neighborhood." Unfortunately many people still focus on blaming people and ignore the structures which cause problems. It seems that the structures that benefit us at the expense of those "less fortunate" can't be questioned. 

One example recently is the deciding not to put services where people need them. Thanks to Carolyn for writing this opinion piece on UNM axing plans for services.

As they say - You can't have the underprivileged without someone being over-privileged!

Got to walk a lot for Halloween. I did a nice 20 minute walk for work this morning. 

I need to make time to lift heavier. The High Intensity Training is good exercise. I just need the meditative part of moving weights. I'll have to figure that out.

Here's what I've done besides just increase my general walking is 3 times a week to do three 20 second full sprints and two minute cool down periods. Walking to and from the workout I count as warm-up and cool-down periods.

I think it is helpful overall. 

Been struggling with allowing negative thoughts move through me instead of holding on to them. 

Hopefully the neoconservatives get their butts kicked in the election and then we can move on getting rid of the neo-liberals!
