Day Nine
Wednesday, September 23, 2020      5 comments

Ran yesterday for Day 8 but didn't have a chance to get online to update my blog. Ran again today. Each day is easier and easier. I just wish that I didn't need to use the restroom or I could go much further. Older DD has been bitten by ... Read more
Day Seven

Yesterday I took the day off from walking and running. I was so darn tired because not only was the owl back hooting all night long but the coyotes were out having a party in the woods somewhere. Goodness coyotes are noisy. The rest of the I ... Read more
Day Six (to the bulldozer!)
Wednesday, September 16, 2020      3 comments

Well actually I was heading for the bulldozer which is just past my neighbors driveway but instead went even further to the next neighbor's driveway with is 2 more lots down. So, even though I told DH I wasn't having as much fun today I did run... Read more
Day Five

Man was it cold last night. Got down to 43 overnight and even though I closed most of the windows in the house it was cold when I got up. Still kinda cool in the house and it's noon already. I hate to close up the house totally, especially si... Read more
Day Four
Monday, September 14, 2020      2 comments

This morning I ran passed my neighbors drive and almost to the For Sale sign further down the road. It will be my goal for tomorrow or the next day. I also recovered from my running quicker which made me happy. That first day was kinda scary ... Read more
Day Three

My last blog entry was Feb 28th. Wow, lots has happened since then that’s for sure. Schools closed the Friday before my 62nd birthday. I still continued to get paid which was nice and it was a nice lead-in to my actual retirement at the e... Read more

This mornings glucose levels was much lower, thank goodness. Older DD texts me to get my number in the early morning but I told her today not to worry, if it gets unreasonable again I will let her know. Nice that she worries about me. Las... Read more
Testing myself with a glucometer
Thursday, February 27, 2020      3 comments

Last week, in an effort to get a better handle on my blood glucose level, I purchased a gluocometer from Meijer. It came with a finger poking device which, initially, I was pretty afraid of using. Turns out there are different gauges of the ne... Read more

Just weight training today with some elliptical and stationary bike work. Did 35 minutes on the bike, my longest time ever. Didn’t take my audiobook and just watched TV. The TV is way too close so periodically I would have to look away out th... Read more

Went back to the Y Center yesterday after my mini vacation last week. And since I’d been having so much fun walking at the mall I decided to do both as my workout. Walking a mile at the Y takes 16 laps. Just one lap that incorporates 3 stores... Read more
Day 6

Went back to work yesterday for a partial day. My official boss, who works in a different building and rarely comes to where I am, came to the middle school yesterday. She wanted to find out what exactly I do, how I use the computer program th... Read more
Day 4
Wednesday, January 29, 2020      4 comments

Had a tough time sleeping last night. My room at the park inn was incredibly hot. Even laying on top of all blankets and sheets brought me no respite. At one point I actually contemplated opening a window but that would have been bad of me si... Read more

Went to our local mall today and did the circuit I had promised DH I would walk & measure. Walking the mall and the loop thru Target and the loop thru Kohl’s was almost 1-1/2 miles. Just a sqweeje under. I need to figure out how to get that li... Read more
Day 2
Monday, January 27, 2020      4 comments

Walked just a mile today at the Y Center. Basketball games downstairs were pretty noisy and it was hard to concentrate on my audiobook so I started watching the guys shooting the baskets. There was one fellow, around 15, who is pretty darn goo... Read more
Restart 2020
Sunday, January 26, 2020      4 comments

I have been very faithful going to the Y Center now for almost 2 full months. I go at least 4 times a week. There are days when I mean to go but for some reason just don't get the chance. If I don't go right from work I just don't do it, thou... Read more
