Feeling much better, but not great. What a Winter season so far. DAY'S POSITIVES Fever broke, yay! No new snow cover so far (shoveling is that very last thing I need right now) Had plenty of homemade turkey soup frozen to use while... Read more

Sick again. Apparently something new or a relapse. Managing to work a little bit as aspirin kicks in. Sigh. DAY'S POSITIVES Illness is temporary. Convinced DIL to take granddaughter to day care today so I could rest. DAY'S PLANS... Read more

Last night's celebration was wonderful family time. DH couldn't enjoy it much....seems he has had a relapse. I am doing much better than he is, though I have no energy and am still combating congestion. DAY'S POSITIVES Day 1 of 2015's H... Read more

Tired. In the grips of whatever this holiday illness was. DH is feeling the same way. I can hardly remember what it is to feel some energy toward the day. And I wonder, how do people with chronic illness cope every day? I am amazed by the c... Read more

A winter storm is forecasted to roll in today. Like yesterday, I'll lace up and get a short walk in. Then hit the client work all day (didn't do any yesterday, opted to put away all the holiday decorations instead). Visited BIL in the hos... Read more

We were able to exchange Xmas gifts with the kids yesterday, finally from delays caused by illness. The fancy red dress was a real hit....once granddaughter opened the gift and put her dress on, she didn't take it off until bedtime. It fit her... Read more

Yesterday was a good start to working in some health and fitness into my life. I walked outdoors for 20 minutes, which made dog Molly very happy....she always gets to walk the firtst 10 minutes with me. And, I ate within calorie range, and bre... Read more

Boy....have I slacked with my blogging. And everything else to do with health and fitness, especially the latter, from the holiday cookies my friend so lovingly made for us. I promised myself I will get back on track with my eating today. ... Read more

Yesterday was a super good workout with shoveling 10" of heavy snow. I topped that with 1.5 hours of sledding with granddaughter; I did a lot of pulling her up the hill on the sled. I took her to the same spot I used to take my boys to when th... Read more

In my busy streak for my business, closing company books for year. I know I am not too busy, though, to fit in at least 10 minues of exercise daily, so that is my Commitment to Self today, and everyday now until the end of January. Course, mor... Read more

I didn't want to get up this morning and rise again to deal with BIL's sad fate: the first of two amputations was done last night; the second will be done next week. We are all so sad for him. He's a type 2 diabetic. A snitcher of swee... Read more

Ever since getting home from the hospital from BILs surgery, I am trying to shake off the cloak of despair that covers me. The doctors post surgery discussion deflated our earlier optimism for BIL to keep his legs, and saving just one will be a... Read more
