Dog Group Day!
Sunday, September 28, 2014      2 comments

So, apparently I need to get an appt with a specialist and they will order the walking boot for me. Because of the injury, it needs a special lift put in to put the foot in a downward extension. I will likely have to wait until the end of next... Read more
Rough week!

All week I have had increasing problems with my Achilles tendonitis. Finally got in to see a doctor yesterday. Unlike my family doctor, this one had some useful suggestions. He is sending me to a specialist. He prescribed pain killers. He a... Read more

Yesterday was so great! It was beautiful and hot and sunny. My husband and daughter and I took our 2 dogs to the dog beach for the day. They had so much fun and so did we. It was over 2 hours of walking and running up and down the beach and ... Read more

So, I have to shake off the bad mood and the sitting down and watching tv at night. I can't wait until my local pool is open again and I can swim at night. Until then, I need to be more diligent at dog walking and stretching. I hope that ... Read more

So, my daughter is back living with us full time now and her husband is coming at the end of the month. It will be a huge adjustment for us. We are used to being alone. Also, they are bringing their 25 pound little dog. I do love having him!... Read more
Back to Whole Foods!
Sunday, September 14, 2014      3 comments

Today I will go to the grocery store and stock up on healthy stuff and get it ready for the week. I don't think I will be as hard core this time. Sugar is out, as is higher fat dairy and grains. Everything will be bought raw and prepared ... Read more
Back to Whole30 Program!
Friday, September 12, 2014      2 comments

So, another day, another headache (backache, all over ache). I am sick of it! I never had these problems on the Whole30. I am going again. And this time I will phase in the food groups to see which is the nasty culprit that is causing me pai... Read more
Time to reassess - again!!!
Thursday, September 11, 2014      3 comments

So I have fallen back into the comfortable trappings of pre-made, crappy food. Since my big walk last weekend, I have been resting on laurels, so to speak. A couple of days before, I eat more carbs. Then during the walk, we get healthy, nutri... Read more

You know that sinking feeling you get AFTER you enjoy something really yummy??? That's me! I was at Starbuck's and getting a decaf, fat-free, sugar-free, mocha. Really yummy and minimum of calories and fat-free. Win - win, right? WHOA... Read more
Sore & tired but finished our 65 km walk!
Monday, September 08, 2014      5 comments

I hurt everywhere from the waist down but we did it! We were almost the last people to finish, but we did it! My poor friend had blisters all over her feet. Let me recap - we started walking on Sat at about 8:45 am. We finished Sat at ... Read more

Starting to get very nervous about my 60 km walk this weekend! They have "sweep vehicles" that will pick you up and drive you to the next rest stop if you need help. I have gone 4 years and never "got swept". I am so nervous about this year!!... Read more

Today I am going to my hairdresser Shantel, to get pink extensions put in! Very exciting! Over the years I have tried combinations of wigs (great look but way too hot and heavy) to dyes (rained both years and ran all over me and my clothes and... Read more
