Got back on the wagon and got my groove on.

I hiked miles on vacation. Lots of miles. I also had to show up my husband's siblings or at least show I could lead them to all my favorite places. Mostly I said let's go up there or over there. Steps. lots. Elevations higher than I remembered, but I did it!
Then I came back to a personal fitness trainer and still having sessions of physical therapy for my shoulder.
I've donned my armor against the food in my way. My last cardiology visit sealed the deal. A significantly blocked exterior carotid. Even though I try (sigh) to eat low-fat and I take Crestor I can't remove spending my first 20 years in a 2 pack a day 2 smoker household. I've never lit up a cigarette but that doesn't matter.
The scale shows 12 pounds down in 6 weeks.
I don't feel deprived. I've been mixing it up with fresh veggie blends and a strange attraction to flavored ketchups loaded with hot spices which seem to satisfy any cravings I've had to eat more. Tomatoes in any form seem to be my go-to comfort food.
Now I have to make my totally veggie lasagna with zucchini noodles, a hint of cheese and a lot of spiced tomatoes!
