Dietician visit

Monday was my appointment with a registered dietician. We met for an hour and covered a broad range of subjects. I am apparently not the typical diabetic patient he sees … my what a surprise. We went over my history, what medications I am taking now, what I have taken in the past. He looked…

Welcome 2016

New Year's Day has been quiet and uneventful for us. But it is off to a pretty good start. I got up later than usual and went to the gym. Where I proceeded to work pretty hard with my mini bands, TRX, and stretchy bands. While I felt pretty good this morning after yesterday's lower…

Zombie shopping

No, I am not searching for flesh-eating dead folk. Zombie shopping is when I lose my mind and online shop without advance planning or particular purpose and is usually directed a few select stores. This time it was Amazon, where I went to get M's ginger chews (orange chimes - quite yummy if you like…

The week thus far

So my plantar facia problem continues. It's like an ongoing saga that seems to have no end, but in reality it's only been a few weeks of intermittent pain and less than a week of truly youchie pain. It IS improving and getting better. The biggest problem is I am an incredible baby about the whole…

New challenges

I mentioned last week (here) my financial commitment to personal training with J at my gym. Our first session of the 20 purchased is Thursday morning, and I am actually kind of excited about it. Which is such an odd thing for me to say and genuinely mean, because I generally hate all forms of…

More yoga practice

So I was reading comments and such and realized I had a major typo in this morning's post. I had started that post yesterday regarding the Saturday morning yoga class, only to not correct it when finishing it today. Now edited and corrected. Just an editorial FYI in case anyone thinks I have become some…

Welcome 2015

I waited to write this until I had completed my one goal for the year: 30 minutes of dedicated walking or other cardiovascular exercise. Yep, this first day of a new year, and I am successful. I got up, got dressed, drank some water, procrastinated, folded laundry, procrastinated even more, ate some breakfast, chatted on…

Weekend wrap-up

The holiday weekend has been very satisfying. Independence day party turned into quite a hit. Everyone had plenty to eat and to drink, our pool was wonderfully refreshing, and the fireworks display was surprising. Everyone seemed to bring a box of fireworks, so we spent a good 90 minutes out front lighting them off with our neighbors.…

Healthy, healthy, joy, joy

Since the first of the year I have been pretty relentless and single-minded in my exercise pursuits. Nearly every day I get up and sit down on my rower and have gradually been increasing time and my mileage. I am now rowing an hour most days and steadily getting closer to the 10,000 meter mark.…

2014 … BRING IT ON!

In this case it is not the cute and stylish shoes shown in the illustration but a pair of running shoes. The local Fleet Feet (my son's employer) conducts a training group for beginning runners. A mini goal for January is to start attending the workouts and continue through the month of January. The group…
