Lululemon has let me down.

I haven't written for a long while.  I've had a rough go of it.
losing my mother and best friend in short order has knocked me
for a loop.
My med-resistant depression has a foothold and even with light therapy for the
darkness I am struggling.
That being said. My sister put up a link to fit-quest trainer blog and I had to agree.

Lululemon, I began buying your clothes when you were on 4th avenue, in a sparse upstairs space that had sewing machines and a couple of clothing racks.

I have personally gifted your clothes to many people.  I have believed in your
clothing and your brand.
Over the last 10 years I have been battling depression and dealing with the menopause from hell.
My middle is thicker now even with regular exercise.
There haven't been shirts that fit me in years.
Everything is long very fitted and long waisted.
The Pants haven't had a real waist band in years.
Only drop waist, which doesn't fit menopause belly well.  It sits right on
the thick part and rubs.

Lululemon have eliminated thousands of women in middle age who are unable to find attractive, comfortable exercise wear.

This new issue with the lesser quality material and comments from lululemon defending the pilling on the pants is crap.
I have pants 15 years old that don't pill like pants from 2 years ago.
The original fabric was more substantial and had a tighter weave so there was no thinning or pilling.

Get With The Program.
Do Not Allow Success to mess with and disappoint the many loyal women out there who were counting on You.

That kinda covers it for now.

It's a Funny Old Life

I've been doing some spring cleaning.  More a decluttering really.

I'm finding the older I get the more clutter bothers me.

I'm also finding that if some physical pain is plaguing me, my mood suffers.

Reading is really my refuge, and it can be a place I hide from life.

For a while it was about survival, now it is about learning to define myself in a different way.
More like leaning to see myself in a new way, and give myself creative license to be whatever this new me is.
I've started doing Deep Water Aquafit to get back into shape and not a moment too soon, let me tell you.
Feeling more portly lately and can see every corn chip and scoop of ice cream on my  belly and haunches.  I now know what lower back fat looks like and it's not a good look on me. Argh!!!
So I've been exercising for a month now and I feel physically stronger and muscles are beginning to be toned.. I actually have a core again.
Yay Moi!!!
Feeling a little cut off from the world right now and thought maybe blogging would jog my subconscious to float something to the surface.
Nothing Yet, I'll keep ya posted.
PS I'm not known for my sterling patience!  Just saying.

Monday, 11 March 2013 Made My Day!!!

I was on Twitter today and one of my Favorite Authors Darynda Jones had a post about the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood so I clik'd and a whole new world opened up.

I read the posts and comments and was compelled to communicate with them and share my Reading as Coping Strategy (read addiction,hee-hee)
So I shared some of my favorite authors and commented on a few other things.

The big news today was I discovered Boudreaux's Bookworms, a facebook group that shares news about books and authors and a whole world of being able to share my gushing admiration, of books, characters, stories.
Share my visual imagination, my personal preferences and best of all Learn about 
likeminded individuals perceptions about the same books/characters.

I, for the first time in a verrrra long time felt compelled to come to this blog and write.
For so long this blog was just a way for my Family(which is 2000 miles away from me) to keep up with how I'm doing.

It's been a rough few years for me, with a chronic depression and physical illnesses/surgeries that decked me and had my relatives worried.
I stopped writing because if I shared how I was actually feeling/doing my family would all call me on the phone worried.  I started to feel responsible for how they were feeling and it robbed me of my voice.  Sooo I discontinued the automatic email delivery feature of this blog, and then I just stopped writing.

Today writing a response and replies on the Ruby Slippered Sisterhood website I felt inspired and a part of something.
Sooo I'm here writing this for myself, kinda like a typewritten journal.

It's a Verra Goood Thing!
