No plans leaves a lot to do
Sunday, August 12, 2018      10 comments

I'm not interested in the carb shutdown my dear cousin has been promoting. She and I have similar genetics, similar builds and tastes. She's had both hips replaced before 60 and has been struggling to loose the weight...we are bookends. She... Read more

Since it's been so warm and we've been busy, I've been relying on salads and home-precooked meals and NOT tracking. I did track the past few days, and honestly. The olives in my salad have increased in volume over the past few weeks. Likewise th... Read more

There's no doubt I'm active. I'm back to at least 3 days a week strength training, stationary cycling as much and now walking and "noodle" cycling in my pool daily. I've begun to increase my walks. No more PT. My knee is complaining, in a differ... Read more
