I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    hello my friend! I am sick! Doctor and I finally figured out it is side effects from my new cholesterol shot Repatha. I was on Praulent and doing great and the insurance decided it no longer would cover it, so they made me switch to Repatha, been sick since I started it almost 2 months ago. Doctor pretty much read my insurance the riot act and they have backed off and now will cover the Praulent again. Research says it could take MONTHS to get over the side effects and some may never go away! So most days I am extremely lethargic and weak most of the day and I sleep most of the time now. I am trying to jump on Spark during the short times I am able to stay awake.
    Thank you SO much for thinking about me and caring.

    mmm, think I'll post this as short blog too!

    Hello Deena,
    the weather has cooled down slightly and it is tolerable now without having to run the A/C.
    Rain is in the air but hoping it holds off until later in the day as we are interring my mom and dads ashes to the cemetery and conducting the service for my mom who passed away in December.

    I saw your post about your memory of your dad and you son. and I send gentle hugs your way in hopes that it will show you that I care and I understand how you are feeling.
