Having RA since age 6.5, and years of hospital stays and surgeries (38 operations and counting) have kept me on a weight loss roller coaster my entire adult life. I have five artificial joints, but love to work out, the higher intensity the better. I have three forms of arthritis destroying my body, but fight to keep moving every body part they damage. That is all that stands between me and a wheelchair. My favorite fitness classes are Boxercise, Step & Zumba! My trusty elliptical keeps me moving on the days I can't get out. Winters are long and hard here and even more challenging to keep moving.
I can only type with one finger so request you do not add me as friend as its all I can do to keep up with the great friends I already have!! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this!

The dogs are fine, Linda. The brother walked and took care of them most of the time. I'm becoming more and more aware of things that others will have to think about and dispose of, after I'm gone.

I think you're right that it was a bit premature for me to have gone back to work... I am grateful I feel the best today that I have in weeks...
"Halo's" seedless tangerines are my new favorite fruit! I bought a bag Thursday, and I've been enjoying them so much.
I've been adding greens(like spinach and kale) to all sorts of things lately. I'm finding if I freeze some, then add it to my smoothie mix, it blends better. Once I get past the green, I have to admit there is no evidence of the greens as far as taste goes. I'm putting spinach is soups ad gravies, too, that I'd never thought I would.
I believe I am going to add 50mg of zinc to my daily med regimen. It seemed to really help me progress to where I am now.
Hope your weekend is going well... I'm prepping my business bookwork to go to CPA. Such fun! But my timer is my friend... after and hour of sitting, I get up, grab a glass of water and make a lap around the house. I think I'll go have a Halo while I'm up, too.
