I've been having a good time dancing to my Oldies, strength training and stretching, and even lost 10 pounds. My leg has been hurting for about 4 days. It's hard for me to lift my leg high enough to get in the car, and is extremely painful for m... Read more
Weekdays or Weekends?
Wednesday, July 12, 2017      6 comments

Is it easier to stay on track weekdays or weekends? It doesn't really matter to me as im retired and no children at home. It's more a matter of just having what we need on hand. The leg isn't getting any better because I've tried to exercis... Read more
Getting hungry
Tuesday, July 11, 2017      2 comments

This morning I had almonds, dried pineapple, and grape juice. Healthy, but just not a whole lot. On the bright side, it helped with the swelling in my leg, which is also feeling better. The afternoon was a protein shake. And dinner was a sa... Read more

Somehow I hurt my right leg, and don't know if I pinched a nerve or just what happened. I've really been enjoying dancing to my Oldies, and as Christine reminded me, I can do some exercises sitting down. So that's what I did today. I much pref... Read more

Love to Help
Saturday, July 08, 2017      4 comments

I Love to Help. I've always been that way. My X asked, "Why do you inconvenience yourself?" To me, it's not an inconvenience, a problem, a bother, or any of the other words people use to negatively describe it. I told him, "It's not an... Read more
Busy, hot, muggy day.
Friday, July 07, 2017      2 comments

I had to wait until I got back to the house to exercise. Up at 10, out the door a little after 12, and back home about 6. It was hot and muggy (thunderstorms), and I was tired. I did get in 35 minutes. When my body said enough, I listened. ... Read more

Since last week, I've had a headache every morning. Sinuses. It usually disappears by early afternoon. I haven't made it to my arthritis water class since last week. Not happy doesn't begin to describe it! Instead, I've exercised at home. D... Read more
Enjoying the quiet

Sounds like I spoke too soon. I hear fireworks in the distance. The last two nights there have been Boom-ing, whistling, Pop-ing, fireworks for hours! We were both coming off the couch! Now it's quiet again. It's amazing how nice it is. It'... Read more

Usually once each summer, I treat myself to a banana split. Tonight was time. A hamburger patty (no bun) with cheese, watermelon, and the banana split ... this time, homemade. Yes, it was a bit bigger than I needed. And, yes, I totally enjoyed i... Read more

I dislike having pictures of myself taken However, I decided to be brave and take a couple. They were worse than I imagined. I'm in a pair of pants that I just recently bought, but they're a bit tight. Hence, the belly hanging over. ... Read more

Blech At least I was at home. I've learned that when I get a hint out of the corner of my eye to take pain meds right away! For those that don't know ... imagine a drop of water on your eye, with all the bright lights of a prism, but you ca... Read more
Scale confusion
Saturday, July 01, 2017      5 comments

Have you ever looked at the scale, and thought it was wrong? Not too High, but too Low! I did a Triple take this morning. It was 5 pounds lower than I thought it was supposed to be! Okay? I had to step on the scale a couple of times to make ... Read more

Need Advice
Thursday, June 29, 2017      6 comments

Has anyone kept what they're doing, not secret or hidden exactly, but just not mentioning anything about it? I find that I do better when I don't tell anyone. The problem, for me, is when they notice and/or say something. It's almost as if a... Read more
