Guess I should document our move to retirement and Tucson, AZ. My final day at the office was March 17, 2017. It was also the first day of a three day road trip from SE Michigan to our new home in Tucson. We moved into our Tucson home March 25th and it seems that we are still in the process. However, all of the big and important stuff has been completed. So, with the life change it was logical that a re-commitment to a more healthy lifestyle was in order. Actually the transformation began back in Michigan, losing about 10 lbs the first three months of 2017. Over the next three months in Arizona another 10 lbs were gone and as of the middle of August I am 25 lbs lighter than I was at the start of the year. I have much more to accomplish, but I am happy with my progress thus far. Arizona's weather and our local community's embrace of a more active, outdoor lifestyle helps to support my mission. My new medical professionals also encourage me to work on my "numbers" - weight, cholesterol, glucose. They are great doctors and PA's, part of the University of Arizona / Banner Health network. Well, all is well so far. I will do a year end Blog to see where we are then.
