Life can be a wild ride!

Over the years, I have been off and on with a steady exercise program... I honestly say more on than off! The last 2 1/2 years, I got back into my running program and had been doing very well. My 20 year reunion was in the summer of 2008 and I looked and felt great then and even ran a half marathon 10/2008. The start of 2009 was busy with moving and remodeling a house, but I kept my exercise program going.

Over the years, I have been off and on with a steady exercise program... I honestly say more on than off! The last 2 1/2 years, I got back into my running program and had been doing very well. My 20 year reunion was in the summer of 2008 and I looked and felt great then and even ran a half marathon 10/2008. The start of 2009 was busy with moving and remodeling a house, but I kept my exercise program going.

Then in October, on my way to work out at my gym, I got into a car accident. The accident slowed me down - back, neck, leg and side pain meant little or no exercising. My tests showed that my spine is great but revealed I have a HUGE hemagioma in my liver, that has replaced the right lobe of my liver in its entirety. What does that mean? Well, I have had it since birth, it's benign, but was probably irritated in my accident. I see a liver specialist at Baylor in Dallas and will probably have it removed. That's major surgery and I will need to be at the top of my game to recover from that!

I am easing back into an exercise program after being placed on REST and a regimen of anti-inflammatories and pain meds. I am looking forward to starting a walking routine and easing back into a program.


Now, I am getting back on track. As for goals, I would like to be able to run 2 miles before my surgery and lose about 8 pounds before surgery. I also discovered I am anemic so I am working on a better diet and iron supplements.

My Program:

Exercise daily! Even if it is cold outside. No excuses.

I am following the premise of the 5-Factor program, on my own! Basically, eat 5 small meals a day and each meal contains 5 parts: lean protein, good carbs, healthy fat, 5-10 grams of fiber, and a sugar-free beverage (my fave is green tea). That sounds easy and is a better way to eat. Fat gets a bad rap - our brains are 75% fat. You need to eat some fat to keep the noggin functioning, but in the form of healthy fat. Snacking is OK - but who needs potato chips, crackers and pop tarts when you can eat almonds, cheese, yogurt and fruit! A couple of dark chocolate Hershey's kisses hit the sweet spot when I need them.

I am glad to be back and can't wait to start on my new goals!

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born today, September 28, you are something of a paradox -- a comic force with tragic leanings, or, in other words, a natural clown who very much wants to be taken seriously in all things. Fortunately, it is likely that the stars will shine brightly on you, offering opportunities that allow you to develop along two parallel courses -- one that highlights your positive, irreverent and even outrageous humor and, at the same time, your serious, contemplative and ambitious self. Which is dominant at any given time is hard to figure -- and you may not have much control over this issue.

Things around you that others see as wholly uninteresting inspire you. You hear in the breeze a kind of muse that speaks only to you and you find in the routine of everyday life the kind of opportunity that others habitually overlook.

Today’s Libra Horoscope: You must be ready to receive both cheers and jeers today, as a result of a last-minute decision that takes many people by surprise.

Hope your day is wonderful!

Happy Birthday to You!!

Born today (Sept. 28), you don't particularly like being the center of attention and you are at your best when you are working behind the scenes, making things happen for those who crave the limelight. There will always be those who wonder why you don't take center stage yourself, but you never feel the need to explain yourself; rather, you let your actions speak for you -- and they almost always yield the results that you desire. This doesn't mean, of course, that you are at all paralyzed when you are called upon to play a leading role; you are able to do yeoman service, but you will retire quickly to the background when the lights go down. You enjoy sitting back and watching your labors yield fruit -- often, even, from a distance.

You are a social being, and you love to share experiences and stories with others. When it comes to matters of the heart, you can be rather secretive, as you feel that your love life is no one's business but your own. Even at an early age, you will have a clear sense of what makes you happy in love, and you will claim it again and again throughout your lifetime.

Today’s Libra Horoscope: You can enjoy winning more than bragging rights when all is said and done, but that may not be quite as soon as you had hoped or expected.

Hope your day is wonderful!
