First I want to thank all of you who gave me such sound advice. Pretty much in line with what I would have said myself if it were advice to someone else. Not sure why it's so hard to do what's right for myself sometimes but that's a problem fo... Read more

If you read my last blog you'll know that I just saw my primary care doctor for what I thought was a rather insulting annual physical. I tried to tell her that I had been sick for almost 2 weeks and was now at a place where I couldn't really ea... Read more

I went this morning to see my Doctor for my Annual Checkup. This was my first Annual since I've been on Medicare and I have to say, I'm not pleased. She "had" to ask me a series of what I would call rather unnecessary questions like: do you h... Read more

I think my doctor will be happy to see a weight loss from last year - 15 pounds. Less than I had hoped for but more than nothing! A big step for me. She will also be happy to hear that I'm exercising enough to keep my knees working better for... Read more

I think I've been doing pretty well in sticking to my new healthier goals - I'm exercising most days if even for just 15 minutes, Daisy and I are getting out to walk even if the weather isn't cooperating, and I've been cooking healthy meals near... Read more

For 5 weeks now I've been in the Bible Study / Nutrition class called Treasury of Healthy Eating. It's been very interesting, very enlightening, and a little bit frightening. It's a video series that we watch each week with lots of detail on n... Read more

I wasn't feeling great when I went to bed last night, didn't sleep very well and woke up feeling even worse. I decided to relax, not to push myself and just take the day as it came. Because I was a bit sick to my stomach I also decided to make... Read more

Nothing very exciting, really - but a pretty big deal to me. Anyone who knows me know how much I dislike winter. Never did get into the snow activities, don't ski, snowmobile, or ice skate. Thought once or twice about snowshoeing but you have... Read more
