    Thanks for your encouraging comment on my fitness minutes. I'm not doing fitness like what most people think of as fitness, because of my pain. But I do count my daily chores. Like 35 min. of housework or shopping gets 100 calories burned. That adds up after awhile! With yardwork, that's more tough, so with every 25 min. of that, is 100 calories burned. There's an article here on SP. where I got that info., and a whole lot of other info. too. I hope you're doing well. I think of you often, with a smile. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    In the process of going about our day, it can be so easy to lose sight of little, important details...like US! Taking care is a big deal, I never want to go back to the constant falling/ barely moving before my knee replacements, annnnd I am truly DONE being the fat girl. Supporting others in their journey to wellness is a reciprocal thing...never hurts that I have energy to spare. Most days, ha! So many of us connect with your genuine kindness and spirit!

    Oh my friend, if only my husband would stay at 70 mph. He pushes the envelop a bit and that's why we take back roads at my suggestion. But it's a long haul from the coast so we dawdle until sundown, and then it's the highway all the way.

    Thank you so much for your comments on both my blogs. I had to laugh about beer because I had just drunk a can and wished I could add it to my nutrients for the day! Maybe we should switch our beer to dark chocolate! For the fiber, I’ve found that whole wheat English muffins, which I can get at my local supermarket, push my count up quite a bit. It’s so hard to get whole wheat bread in Japan, isn’t it?
    Upping my potassium hasn’t completely got rid of the arrhythmia – I was too optimistic – but I think there has been a big improvement. One day it was worse, so I checked my count for that day – half the minimum!
    “Kale” was written in katakana on the packet. It was in my supermarket one time and now it’s disappeared again, but if I walk 15 minutes, I can get it at the department store (and score some extra fitness minutes!)
    Yes, dialysis is awful, isn’t it? S. gets really fed up with the relentlessness of it, and the diet restrictions are crazy. Dialysis doesn’t get rid of excess nutrients, so you have to restrict all kinds of healthy foods. Taking trips was one of his big pleasures, too, and dialysis puts a huge crimp in that.
    I hope your mobility issues get better. And I hope you are having a restful and relaxing Sunday. It was actually 22 degrees last night. I haven’t checked Kansai. I hope you’re having a let up in the hot weather.
    Have a great week, Carolyn!

    HI Carolyn,
    Sean Astin is the son of Patty Duke and the adopted son of John Astin.
    Do you remember the Patty Duke show from your early years? And what about te move The Miracle Worker with Patty Duke playing Helen Keller. John Astin played Gomez Adams on the TV show Adams Family back in the 60's.
    Sean played one of the Hobits in Lord of The Rings as well as many other movie credits.
    I was taken aback after the race when I realized who I was competing against all te way.

    Hugs Susan
